The Brickell Flatiron is Officially Open

Ugo Colombo’s latest real estate project, the Brickell Flatiron, is officially completed. This building is a 64-story, 527-unit tower, and is a beautiful contributor to the downtown Miami skyline. This project broke ground in early 2017 and has since gone through exceptional progression to become the beautiful building you see today. Ugo’s passion for Miami real estate combined with Luis Revuelta’s eye for design has created a real estate masterpiece. The interior architect Massimo Iosa Ghini created a seamless transition from exterior to interior by introducing the concept of fluid, continuous space.

Successful Outcomes

The CMC Group has received its temporary certification of occupancy which means that closings will begin right away. The Brickell Flatiron is about 95 percent sold, with more than half of that percentage consisting of domestic end-user buyers. The lowering of deposit requirements to 30 percent at the beginning of this year has attracted more U.S. buyers to the building. This project has been a success story and Ugo Colombo already has another project in the works which is sure to be another beautiful contribution to the Miami skyline.

Miami Real Estate Investment on the Rise

Ugo Colombo has been one of the most important figures in Miami real estate since the 1980’s. Ugo left his home country of Italy to enroll at the University of Miami and immediately saw the potential Miami had for real estate investment opportunity. Ugo Colombo has gone on to become a pioneer in the development of Miami’s bayfront skyline, re-invented the luxury condo market in the city, and acquired one of the most successful luxury vehicle dealerships in the U.S., The Collection, in 1994.

Fast forward to 2019; many new investors are starting to see and capitalize on the potential that Ugo Colombo saw in Miami real estate back in the 80’s. In fact, Miami ranked 3rd on a recent study from realtor.com highlighting the top 10 U.S. markets for real estate flipping. Many investors are purchasing single-family homes with the intention of renting them out or flipping them for a profit. According to the study, 17 percent of all Miami homes purchased are bought by these investors. With average profit at nearly $67,000, Miami certainly will be a real estate investment hot spot for years to come.

The Latest Trends of Miami Real Estate

In the early 1990s, Ugo Colombo saw the investment opportunity in Miami real estate, and now it is starting to reach its full potential. According to Norada Real Estate Investment, Miami real estate appreciated 57.70% over the last ten years, which is an average annual home appreciation rate of 4.66%, putting Miami in the top 10% nationally for real estate appreciation. Despite the downward motion nationwide in the housing market, Miami real estate appreciation rates are strong and have continued to appreciate in value faster than most places. The real estate market in Miami is doing well and has seen a dramatic increase in office locations.

Offices are Taking Over

Office development in Miami has hit its highest level since 2009, which is partially caused by the relocation of tenants from high-tax states. According to The Real Deal, 1.9 million square feet of office space is expected to be completed in the next two years. As of 2011, only 500,000 square feet of office space was expected to be completed, as opposed to the nearly 2 million square feet that is now expected. On top of the relocation of tenants from high-tax states causing this change, it is thought that corporations wanting to expand their Latin American business could also be another reason for this shift.

If you are thinking of investing in Miami real estate, especially in office space, it seems as though the statistics and numbers are on your side. Miami continues to become a “mini-Manhattan” and is seen as a good investment opportunity for the future.

The Key to Success in Real Estate Development

Some may think that the key to success in the real estate development industry is to take on as many projects as possible and hope for the best. However, expertise, attention to detail and planning are the true key elements to being successful.

Plan, Plan, Plan

CMC Group Founder, Ugo Colombo, was recently named a Power Leader in Real Estate by the South Florida Business Journal. He is an alumnus of the University of Miami with a degree in business administration. When asked what his key to a successful career is, his answer was simple. He only takes on one or two projects at a time and pays extreme attention to detail to each one.

He added that planning in the beginning stages of a project is crucial to the project’s success. It’s very similar to racing, if you aren’t prepared for the turn seconds before, there may be big consequences to pay. The same goes for real estate, if enough planning isn’t done before the project breaks ground, the price will be paid during or at the end of the project.

Jaguar Goes Electric

As the 50th anniversary marking the launch of the Jaguar XJ approaches, Jaguar has been reimagining this classic sedan. With more luxury car companies taking notes from Tesla’s success, Jaguar is following suit, announcing that the 2019 Jaguar XJ will be a hatchback electric vehicle. This newly redesigned car will have an aluminum frame and twin motors that power all-wheel drive. Jaguar intends on ensuring this car’s output rivals non-electric vehicles to keep with its sports car roots.

This electric vehicle’s range will take you over 300 miles before needing to be charged again. Although this is less than Tesla’s over 600-mile range on the newer models, the choice to cross over to a fully electric engine is unique when compared to other brands Jaguar competes with. It’s projected that electric vehicles and hatchbacks will surpass sedans in popularity in the coming years.

Though this vehicle doesn’t launch until late in 2018, THE COLLECTION carries the luxurious 2018 sedan model, with a range of colors and specs to choose from. The Ugo Colombo Miami dealership THE COLLECTION is Miami’s foremost luxury automotive dealership serving Aventura, Brickell, Coral Gables, Miami Beach.
