How do You Diversify Miami Beach Beyond Just Entitled NIMBYs and the Rich?




The Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce is holding its annual real estate luncheon on September 12th, and tickets are still available. The topic of the panel discussion, “Diversifying Our Real Estate to Diversify Our Economy,” recognizes the fact that as Miami Beach real estate becomes more expensive, its population has become more affluent, exclusive, and monotonous, and more people are being pushed out.

An excerpt from the press release is below:

On Thursday, September 12, 2019, the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Real Estate Council and the Miami Association of Realtors will present “Diversifying Our Real Estate to Diversify Our Economy,” sponsored by Atlantic Broadband..

Taking place at the Faena Forum, this interactive solution-driven discussion will explore a variety of timely topics that include:

–Strategies that will attract different types of industries to Miami Beach while building Class A office space

–Cultivating incubators as well as co-working spaces

–Developing different housing types to keep our workforce on Miami Beach (and reducing traffic)

–Attracting younger residents and families

–Utilizing the City’s historic buildings and heritage in moving forward toward the goal of diversifying our economy

–Why Miami Beach? What did you see here that attracted you to Miami Beach/what makes us special?

–How can we build on that and take it “next level”? What is next level for us?

What role does our past play in our future real estate development initiatives (e.g. celebrating the past and our historic gems, while building on that with new, resilient development that meets the needs of today’s buyers, etc.)

In general, the conversation will include ways Miami Beach can use its real estate in creating a more diverse economy. The panel will explore strategies that have been done right and opportunities to improve. Also, how can Miami Beach achieve a live-work-play environment and learn from cities that have sustained them?

The discussion will be led by Susan Askew, Founder/Editor of RE:MiamiBeach, with the following panelists:
·         Alicia Cervera Lamadrid – Managing Partner, Cervera Real Estate
·         Matis Cohen, – Principal, Kahunah Properties 
·         Rory Greenberg – Real Estate Developer, RB Green Companies 
·         Michael Shvo, Chairman & CEOSHVO
