South Florida is known and loved for many reasons. Whether you enjoy admiring the cruise ships sail out of Miami Beach, having dinner with a stunning view of the city skyline, or the always-summer weather, there are a million and one exciting things about the vibrant area located at the eastern tip of Florida’s peninsula. Add to that a thriving business ecosystem, diverse workforce, and an enviable location as the Gateway to the Americas, and one can readily understand why Amazon has listed Miami as one of the top 20 cities being considered for their second headquarters.
Are you considering a move to South Florida? Here are just a few of the reasons why you should consider the change:
1. #1 for New Business Creation
In the Kauffman Foundation’s 2017 Index of Startup Activity, the Miami/ Ft. Lauderdale region was named #1 for new business creation, among 40 other major cities. Established industry leaders, such as American Airlines and US Century Bank among many others, also call the area home. South Florida has a place for every business, as well as the talent to grow it. Notable among Miami’s cities is Doral, selected as #1 City in Florida for Business Startups (Businessweek), and a destination in which Lennar’ has three beautiful communities: Urbana, in the heart of downtown Doral, Park Central, and Landmark.
2. Year-Round Warm Weather
In South Florida, very few days out of the year are “cold” and the rest are easy, breezy, and comfortable. During the summer, the temperature is always right for a beach/pool day, and perfect outdoor weather continues through the fall, winter, and spring! There is no shoveling snow or cabin fever in our area, and beautiful beaches beckon year-around. Get there in a flash from Lennar communities which are strategically located near major highways. Or omit the drive altogether and relax at your exclusive community swimming pool–some even featuring a waterfall and kids’ water park!
3. Travel the World Without Leaving Town
As a true cultural melting pot, South Florida is rich with culture and diversity, offering authentic products and experiences from all over the world. People from South America, Europe, the Caribbean, Asia and beyond have decided to make the area home. Walk through a busy downtown street and you’re likely to hear Spanish, French, Russian, Portuguese, and English spoken all around you after just a couple of blocks.
And of course, our area is home to a great variety of authentic global restaurants, including cuisine from Cuba, Peru, Mexico, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and more! Visit one of the many local malls to shop international designers from Italy, France, Brazil, and the list goes on. For a thought-provoking outing, check out the waterfront Perez Art Museum Miami, featuring international artwork and a casual cafe with a gorgeous view.
With all that South Florida has to offer, it’s hard to imagine that Miami won’t be chosen as Amazon’s second headquarters. But that doesn’t mean you can’t create your own headquarters here! Browse your beautiful options here!
