What is under the sun exactly?

The Florida climate alone can not explain the tremendous evolution of Miami in the last 20 years. How does this city with a rather provincial, tropical, resolutely Latin atmosphere, at the tip of America, become internationally renowned, attracting as well investors and great American, South American, European, and recently Middle East and Asian fortunes, brave entrepreneurs to conquer new markets and a life to reinvent? What ingredients do we find in one of North America's most dynamic real estate markets?

The skyscrapers each time higher from Brickellas the emergence of new neighborhoods as modern, creative and sophisticated as Edgewater, District Design, Wynwood recall Ginza in Tokyoshopping malls Dubai or the elegant streets of kite. They testify that Miami would not be what it is today without three dominant forces: energy, trust and inspiration. All the major projects that propel Miami into the 21st century were initiated by leaders who have a vision for Miami and are rolling out a plan that even the 2008 crisis did not stop, on the contrary.

The architecture of Miami testifies to a young and dynamic city. Here: Wynwood Garage.

energy of Miami comes from diversity (and therefore wealth) cultural. If it is rare to meet a "Miamien" of origin, the variety of accents puts every newcomer perfectly at ease. The builders of the new Miami have Cuban, Argentinian, French, Colombian roots ... they come from Hong Kong, Tel Aviv, New York, Chicago, Toronto or elsewhere ... Entrepreneurs, scientists, artists who contribute to economic development are just as international, bringing a dynamism, a will to advance, innovate, and succeed characteristics of young cities with a dominant of immigrants of first or second generation.

Miami would not be where it is today without a common trait to anyone who succeeds in the city : trust in its future and to make it become an international place while remaining itself. When Art Basel had chosen Miami - from 2001 - to launch its American edition, making Miami, overnight, a must for collectors and fans of contemporary art, it was a bet and a great proof of confidence.

Miami is also the world capital of cruises with ships as disproportionate as the city itself!

The slender and innovative building designed by Zaha Hadid has become a reality, but especially a point of reference in the urban skyline of Miami

The neighborhood of Wynwood, intended for active and young populations, was created from warehouses where "street art" was invited to express itself ... finally and officially! The unique idea of Tony Goldman (the promoter of SoHo has another time) has since been copied around the world. The tower of the famous architect Zaha Hadid, whose concrete structure includes the building like a flower instead of being hidden inside, is a great architectural first in the world ... In a completely different field, the research centers of UM (University of Miami) are home to laboratories and scientific teams working on world firsts, such as the healing of paralysis caused by the spinal cord.

Pages would be needed to list the areas of development that give the city a special place on the world stage. One thing is sure: just minutes from the beach and palm trees, it's a whole different world that thinks, reinvents, imagines and creates a great metropolis of tomorrow.
