Puerto Rico: Like Miami, Minus The Taxes

Last week, when China Construction America Senior Vice President Daniel Lu stepped off the stage following Bisnow's Caribbean Hospitality Investment Summit, attendees swarmed around him waving business cards.

Miami-Dade To Decide Its Transit Future: Rail, Finally, Or More Buses?

Some story plots are as old and predictable as the ages. The bad witch always gets her comeuppance, Sherlock Holmes always solves the case, and municipalities always struggle to find and to fund transit solutions.

This week, Miami-Dade county officials will move forward with a plan to improve transit — they are just not sure yet whether that will go toward building 20 miles of new rail (a supplement to the 25-mile existing Metrorail system) for…

Back Room Lounges No More: Hotels Are Pushing Unique Restaurants To Center Stage

Hotels, especially those in culinary-rich San Francisco, can no longer get away with offering restaurants as an afterthought. Many hotels have been reinventing their food and beverage experiences to attract more customers while enhancing the guest experience.

That has meant incorporating restaurants into the streetscape and bringing in more food hall and market concepts. Hoteliers also are outsourcing their food and beverage operations to third parties.

In San Francisco, hoteliers have to provide fine-dining experiences that parallel the city's vibrant culinary scene. In New York and Los Angeles, there is a prevalence of high-profile restaurants anchoring hotels.

Building Boom: The Top 10 Construction-Friendly Amazon HQ2 Finalists

A flood of residential and commercial development is expected to hit the winning city in a building boom that will likely cause housing costs to spike and a rash of new businesses to sprout up in hopes of capitalizing on the densely populated market and ballooned demand.

A finalist city without stable infrastructure, business-friendly policies or a strong enough construction workforce to handle the flurry of development that will flood the winning city could lead to great pains for residents in the long term.
