This blog is about our urban environment, with a focus on the City of Miami. It covers issues in architecture, urbanism, zoning, transit, real estate and development and will occasionally celebrate personal career accomplishments.

It will try to explain the intricacies of the Miami 21 zoning code and show how regulations affect the real estate market.  Most of the content will focus on local issues but it’s important to keep in mind that these issues can translate to any city in the world.  

The blog will also seek to narrate my experience transitioning from the architectural field into the realm of real estate investment. This particular journey has been a constant struggle and dream throughout my career but feel it’s the culmination of all my experience into one goal.  


RED GROUP is a boutique real estate and design firm leveraging it expertise in the development industry to better serve its clients. With a multilayered approach, RED GROUP analyzes each  task to fully understand the value and impact of design, urban context and investment criteria.

RED Group assists developers accomplish their projects across all stages of design and has established alliances with local and international design firms to tackle the demands of any project throughout the US and LATAM.

RED GROUP firmly believes there is a demand for services and expertise that go beyond just facilitating a transaction. Agents and clients need to be educated about zoning, architecture and finances but also need to understand what are the challenges/opportunities of the local and regional markets.

RED Group is a design firm that strives for quality but also has a clear understanding of what are the driving forces behind client decisions. All too often, architects lose track of the ball striving for beauty and developers become blinded as they attempt to maximize square footages. Consequently, this leads to missed opportunities and projects that lack substance.
