Rendering of University Bridge Residences

Miami-based Global City Development is teaming up with two Canadian builders to bring 492 condos geared toward college students across the street from Florida International University’s main campus.
In a partnership with Toronto’s Podium Development and Reichmann International, Global City is planning a new 20-floor luxury tower designed by Arquitectonica called University Bridge Residences, which will offer units from $190,000 to the high $600,000s. Cervera Real Estate is the exclusive sales and marketing firm.

“These buildings are typically owned by insurance companies and real estate investment trusts,” said Global City principal Brian Pearl. “This is a new trend. We think parents who want their kids to be in the best location near FIU will want to buy. We also think it will be attractive for investors who want to rent to students.”
The development site, at 740 Southwest 109th Avenue, is currently home to a 66-unit apartment complex built in 1983. Property records show College Suites Associates LLC, a company affiliated with the developers’ University Bridge GP LLC, purchased the property for $16.6 million in December.

Floorplans at University Bridge range from 317 square feet to 1,634 square feet, featuring studios and units with up to four bedrooms, as well as three- to four-bedroom townhouses. Amenities include a resort-style pool and a sundeck, a fitness room, an indoor lounge and game room. The rooftop will feature a sunset terrace with dining areas, a yoga lawn and performance stage, according to a press release.
Most units will be between 300 square feet to 600 square feet. “College students haven’t had a lot of time to accumulate stuff so they don’t need big spaces,” Pearl said. “They also don’t need much parking. We have a designed a special drop-off location to make it easier to use ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft.”

Since the building is for student housing, University Bridge will also have shared study areas on each residential floor, a business center with four conference rooms, direct internet access to FIU and an outdoor video screen. The developers are also setting aside 7,000 square feet on the ground floor for retail stores or restaurants geared to FIU students.
The project will also be connected to the campus via a pedestrian bridge over Southwest Eighth Street and will be completed by the start of the 2020-2021 academic year. It will be managed by Landmark Properties, a firm specializing in off-campus student housing.

Dressing for Success Always Wins!!

Dressing for Success is the real deal and became a game changer in our industry when the show starring The Million Dollar Listing Boys aired in March of 2012. When agents such as: Fredrick Ecklund, Ryan Serhant and of course Louis Ortiz hit the screen. They changed the way we looked at Realtors overnight. By dressing impeccable and paying attention to every detail also clinching million dollar deals on a daily basis you could not help from watching the show. Yes, you can sit back and say these guys are magnified on TV and make the money to dress this way. However, hopefully this inspired you and made you look at yourself as a Realtor and think I want to look that way, like I have it all. This is called Showing Up!

Dressing for Success has always been in play at least in my book. I personally never did anything else. First you have to be a contender and second have the knowledge to get the job done and believe me it all depends on how you show up. You must always be prepared and being prepared means giving it your best shot. Some things in life you will only get one shot at because guess what, this is not Tv baby, this is real life, with real high end properties and lots of commissions at stake and if you don't show up on point someone else will.

First impressions are everything in our business. This means always show up as sharp as you can with clothes, hair, nails makeup, shoes and of course your automobile in order. Working with and for high net worth customers in our industry demands that we have a certain level of style and success ourselves before we even get through door and hopefully in front of them. It also shows how you value and perceive yourself as a contender in this high stakes game when your up against others. However, lets not get this twisted in any shape form or fashion, you must also be armed with knowledge of the market and hopefully somewhat of a great track record behind you. Then its is game over!
