Outside Influence

It’s no longer just international buyers who have their sights set on Miami’s high-end market.

Domestic buyers, particularly from New York, are once again taking notice of South Florida and becoming active in the market.

Panoramic Vista
Nice view? It’s what you could see every night from the window of a home in Biscayne Boulevard’s Opera Tower, which is now offering developer-financed bayview studios and 1- or 2-bedroom apartments. The 60-story building is in an unbeatable location, just a short walk from a host of great restaurants and attractions such as The Performing Arts Center and Museum Park. Top it all off with a rooftop pool, gym and clubroom, and you’ll agree it amounts to one very sweet package; 1750 N. Bayshore Dr., Miami; 305.503.1000,
