Miami Beach, oh Miami Beach! Who said 100 years can’t be sexy? They can, at least when it comes to Miami Beach.
The arty-seaside city celebrates its 100th birthday, can you believe it? 100 years passed by since the day a string of islands facing the Atlantic Ocean took on the name Miami Beach. March 26, 1915, was a blessed day, Alleluia.
And 2 years later, Miami became a separate city.
Neither gangsters like Al Capone, nor the devastating hurricanes of 1926, or economic storms of the 70s and the more recent subprime crisis were able to destroy the city. And the success of Art Basel Miami Beach was a big help. Since 2002, this internationally acclaimed contemporary art fair has converted the city into a cultural destination of the first order. A host of museums and high-level galleries have emerged in this city, also known as “the capital of Latin America”.
“Miami Beach has become the epicenter of excitement that keeps your head spinning, you can read at Maison et Object Americas official website. Audacious real estate developers – under the leadership of the entrepreneur Craig Robins, founder of Design Miami Fair – are rehabilitating the historic landmarks of the city as in the case of the Art Deco district as well as developing new urban areas. But there’s not all: with the financial blessing of the investment fund linked to luxury goods giant LVMH, a recent enclave of luxury boutiques are set to open. In the old industrial area of Little River, the contractor Ofer Mizrahi has developed an incubator of creativity that combines workshops, galleries and upscale boutiques.
Miami is modernity: the entire metropolis has embraced architecture. Luxury penthouses and condos are being built for the international elite in a thriving hyper-rich cosmopolitan atmosphere. The words are demolition, reconstruction and renovation. If you are visiting Miami for the Maison et Objet Americas 2015, you definitely should take some of your time and get to know this amazing and happy city. Enjoy!
