Howard Levine: “It is an interesting mix of our buyers. A lot of folks relocating from the New York area are coming into Coral Gables right now. What we are seeing is much more velocity and it is also spurring a lot of people looking to jump into that game. There seems to be present demand and people betting on future demand too.”
Dmitry Levkov: “Coral Gables presents an opportunity for families to enjoy what we call an easy living. It is a walkable city and it is very stable city from the economic standpoint. Prices have been very steady throughout its history. What attracted us to particularly to the MG Developer is their ability to create an oasis inside of Coral Gables. We think that they that the developer is very thoughtful and they really take care of every little detail.”
Patrick O'Connell: “The vision was to create a relatively low-density multifamily district adjacent to the downtown core Coral Gables, which created the walkability for the residents. The other components to Biltmore Square right now, Beatrice Row and Althea Rowe are concurrently being built. Those are the next two phases that are under construction and there is tremendous interest in those units right now to replace a single-family home with a large unit in either a condominium or a townhome.”
Julian Perez: “Coral Gables is a plan community in every aspect of the word. Based on the same concept of the late 1890s and early 1900s, the city has a strong financial footing on a city-wide strategic plan for every department. We plan on building upon our strong foundation to enhance the amenities and infrastructure that our residents, visitors and working professional benefit from.”
Aura Reinhardt: “Vibrancy has been one of the key elements here. Many of you know that coral gables continues to be a desirable destination. It always has been and continues to be such and it is based on many unique attributes that both the locals and tourists love, come here for, and enjoy. We need to be innovative and relevant. We have to continue to change with the consumer. Consumers are looking for a combination of creative marketing activities in their town as well as experiences.”
