Vizcaya is Open? Yep! Check out these Fun Things to Do in June

May 28, 2020 May 28, 2020

For almost two months, Miami hasn’t been quite itself due to the coronavirus outbreak. We’ve missed all the fun events that put the magic in the Magic City. Thankfully, beginning May, the city has started to reopen (including restaurants at 50% capacity and the beaches), and we’re so glad to see some of our favorite hotspots either opening up or gearing up to open in June.

So, for our monthly event roundup this time, we’ve got a mixed bag of virtual events as well as in-person events. Here’s looking at the things you can do (online or on the ground) in Miami for the month of June:

tickets online, members are required to make a reservation due to capacity restrictions. Guests over 2 years of age will have to wear a face-covering as well as adhere to the social distancing norm of 6 feet. Groups of more than 10 are strongly discouraged.

Those not ready to venture out yet can tune into Zoocademy with Ron Magill for fun and educational content and activities that can be enjoyed right at home.


Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden: June 1 onwards

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden


There’s no better way to get back to nature after being cooped up for so long than a field trip to the Fairchild. Members, as well as non-members, can get their tickets 
online.

In compliance with County-wide orders, everyone will be required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing. Each ticket holder will have two hours to enjoy the botanical gardens and shop at their on-premise store. However, those still looking to avoid any kind of physical contact can order farm-fresh mangoes and other fruit delivered to their doorstep from here.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...
The Top 10 Tallest Buildings in Miami (You Can Live In)
Real Estate News The Top 10 Tallest Buildings in Miami (You Can Live In)
If you’ve been visiting Miami over the years, one thing you’ve probably noticed is the buildings keep getting taller, and the skyline keeps growing. Ever since the FAA relaxed its height restrictions more than six years ago, Miami’s skyline has continued to elevate itself with glimmering designs of glass and light. The tallest residential building in Miami as of this post is the apartment highrise Panorama Tower at 828 feet. But that won’t last for long. Every few months, a new condo tower is announced with ambitions of becoming one of Miami’s tallest buildings.  Call them #supertowers, #supertalls, or #skyscrapers, they’re definitely building the city’s skyline, reputation, and luxury living to new heights. So, who can claim the title of Miami’s tallest building you can call home? Check out our list below of the top 10 Tallest Condo Buildings in Miami – present and under construction – if you like to live above it all.

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...

Fort Lauderdale’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: May 2021
Real Estate News Fort Lauderdale’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: May 2021
The South Florida real estate market is experiencing an unprecedented buying boom fueled by the normalization of work-from-home practices, the idea of a better quality of life near the ocean and as scores of new businesses are relocating here. And developers across Fort Lauderdale and Miami are responding. As inventory has steadily dropped for the last two quarters, pre-construction projects are the next product to see a surge in demand and developers are responding by stepping up progress. This May, developers at Fort Lauderdale’s Harbors Edge reported a 70% sell-out in just 2 months after launching sales. Related Group’s Solemar is speeding through for a 2021 delivery. And, there’s speculation of a condo property changing hands.

It’s no secret Miami’s real estate market is super hot and seeing a boom precipitated by the growing number of tech, finance, retail, and hospitality businesses that continue to choose to make South Florida home. As a nod to this surge in demand, we have condo developers either reviving old projects, announcing new ones, or revving up progress on current developments. This May, Miami’s pre-construction condo market saw three development projects make a comeback – Genting’s Resorts World Miami, Kar Properties’ One River Point, and Mast Capital’s 4000 Alton Road.
