Miami luxury new construction condo developments designed by famous architects, or so-called starchitects, continue to gain in popularity in Miami. Over the past decade, famous architecture firms such as Herzog & de Meuron, Foster + Partners, and Bjarke Ingels Group are thriving in Miami and help to play an important role in driving Miami real estate sales in ultra-luxury condo developments.
As more and more sophisticated and wealthy buyers flock to Miami, FL, the Starchitecture real estate trend continues to be the key to selling buyers on high-priced condo development projects. Miami real estate developers have found that commissioning big-name architects to design a condo project is a great way to sell condo units. In addition, well-known architects tend to have better resale values than the project next door that didn’t have a starchitect name behind it. As more new Miami real estate developments are competing for attention, the signature of a visionary architect will continue to be a key differentiator of a successful condo development project.
