Billionaire Ken Griffin offered a public explanation yesterday on why he relocated to Miami along with his company Citadel, according to Bloomberg.
“When you’ve got great schools, a great environment and your streets are safe and clean, that’s when you’ve got a place you want to live in and call home,” Griffin said.
Griffin has previously said he spends a lot of time walking around Brickell, as he prepares to build an iconic headquarters tower that could cost $1 billion and reach supertall height.
The comments were were made at an event hosted by the Economic Club of Miami.
The club was created last year.
Griffin also said at the event that taxes were not a part of the decision to relocate.
“There’s something very special about the government in Florida and their focus on delivering traditional values for the community,” Griffin said.
