“From its roots as a vacation destination and emergence generations ago as a hemispheric hit of trade and finance, Greater Miami continues to redefine itself. Its role in the innovation, technology and investment marketplace has earned global appeal. The world continues watching as the region develops solutions for a changing climate and Greater Miami earns praise as a model 21st century community,” writes journalist Jeff Zbar.
The profile goes on to spotlight the economic sectors driving Miami-Dade’s economy. Chief among them are hedge funds, banks, and financial firms solidifying Miami as “Wall Street of the South,” real estate companies that are accommodating a growing population and expanding business base with new residential and commercial developments, along with hospitality developers and cultural and entertainment venues catering to a steady flow of tourists from across the globe.

These include the $4 billion Miami Worldcenter development in the heart of Downtown, the always-popular Lincoln Road District, revitalized Coconut Grove, and the Brickell Financial District, which is proving to be the landing spot of choice for the world’s largest companies.
