 Miami's Urban Development Review Board just met to vote on updated designs for the Chetrit Group and JDS Development Group's massive Miami River development, which is still going by the generic working title 'Miami Riverwalk' at the moment. Below are some of the new renderings which look pretty amazing to me!  Local starquitect Kobi Karp has done the designs for this huge project along with interiors  done by Roman & Williams, known for their fantastical interiors. Raymond Jungles will be taking control of the landscaping and he is good, better than good in my opinion plus is office is on the current site so he knows it well. If everything is approved as proposed, the 4-million square foot project will have four sixty-story towers, including 1,678 residential units, 330 hotel rooms, 17...

Hello fellow Moon watchers. Not sure why this shot came out so small but it was a sight to be seen tonight. As the full moon rose from the Atlantic and crept above Miami Beach the light illuminate Biscayne Bay. This one will go down as the Easter full moon of 2015, just glorious!

Next up are the Jacarandas (purple flowered trees) and then Summer will be hearld in by the Royal Poincianas which are huge trees covered in flaming red/orange flowers-can't wait!

Another reason to drive a hybrid in South Florida.  As a realtor it is, in my opinion, more important to drive a car that is more sensable than flashy.  However, in South Florida most would think the opposite.  And I get it.  You want to live the image.  If that is who you are then so be it.  But for me, saving gas, leaving a smaller footprint on the environment, and now driving toll lanes for free is reason enough.  Just call me the green realtor.  I'm all about saving the earth.  But driving free through toll lanes in Miami-Dade county really helps too.  Recently the Dept. of Transportation decided to take away two lanes from I-95 in Miami-Dade County and designate them for fast toll lanes supposedly to help move traffic.  It really has just caused more havoc than anything because the...

It was announced yesterday that the Edmonton based company that owns the largest mall in the US wants to build the "biggest" mall right here in Miami. The American Dream Miami as it is being called is being planned for a 200 acre plot in north west Miami Dade county. Besides harboring just about every retail outlet known to man it will also include an indoor ice skating rink, snow covered ski hill, interactive golf, water slides and much more.Of course our county leaders are salivating about the 25,000 job creation and huge tax base-who wouldn't? All I can say is stay tuned for more details and also the fact that it is very far from where I live!

Sometimes you just shake your head and wonder why would anyone live in the frozen northern parts of the country when it is so wonderful here in the winter. Actually I am glad that isn't possible but it still makes me wonder. If you are ready to throw in the towel on another winter up north please give me a call!

With sunny skies and temps in the mid 70's over the entire President's weekend run, the 52 annual art festival held in Coconut Grove (Miami) was a smashing success. Billed as the largest in the country it draws art lovers from all over the world. I attended my first when the festival was in it's early teen years and to watch it grow over the decades has been amazing!

If you want an Art treat go to Art Wynwood now through President's Day. Showcasing the latest from the Contempary Art World. Enjoy true art in a very cool setting with a vibe the artsy Wynwood section of Miami is famous for. Of course it is surrounded by great restaurants and groovy bars not too mention the sunny skies and 72 degree weather. What more you say?

        There are a lot of new changes to be aware of with Google in 2015. They are cracking down on doorway pages, spam blogs and are looking for authority sites.Another big thing here is mobile sites. Google is pushing for more mobile friendly sites and giving them preference on the SERPS - search engine result pages. They are also looking for websites that don't change much. They are considering those abandoned and will delist them in the upcoming months.
