If Picasso Were Alive, He'd Lease in Miami
We all know Miami's hot. But its particular magnetism to creative tenants is one few cities can match. It's one of the many reasons we're excited to hold our annual Miami State of the Market on Sept. 24 at the Intercontinental Miami.
Metro 1 Properties CEO Tony Cho, who'll speak at our event, tells us that Little River and Wynwood are by far the best spots for adaptive reuse and creative projects in South Florida. “The reason is the existing base of creatives and artists already present in those markets, which are also stocked with smallish-but-attractive industrial properties primed for repositioning—which just happen to be in fabulous locations,” he says.
But the markets aren’t identical, Tony adds. Wynwood is the more mature and therefore more costly option. (Wine is priced the same way.) Creatives have been snapping up space at the now-full, 6,000 SF 2085 NW 2nd Ave in Wynwood, which Tony reps. You can bet the walls look nice, since tenants include muralist Miguel Paredes and Art Bastion, which reps artists, organizes pop-up exhibits, and consults art buyers and sellers.
