Why Buying and Selling Residential Real Estate in Brickell in 2024 Makes Sense
Close to Work
There has been a massive migration to Miami-Dade County in recent years. Lured by low taxes, cheaper real estate and a great climate, many companies from northerly cities or California have eyed Miami as a great setting for new company HQs. According to the New York Times, hedge funds and technology companies that relocated to the area during the pandemic or expanded there, have snatched up real estate.
The billionaire Kenneth C. Griffin purchased office buildings in Palm Beach and Miami’s trendy Brickell district, where he intends to build a skyscraper to house Citadel, his hedge fund. Since the start of 2023, newcomer tenants have accounted for 21 per cent of the 3.8 million square feet of active deals in Miami-Dade, said Tere Blanca, chief executive of Blanca CRE. Rents have held steady and risen in some of the hottest neighborhoods, like Brickell.
If you want to skip the commute, living in one of Brickell’s many high-rise condos makes perfect sense.
