China’s Biggest Real Estate Developer Could Be Interested In The Health District

An executive of China’s biggest real estate developer was in Miami recently studying the market and potential projects.

I-Fei Chang, the chief executive of Greenland USA, visited Miami for the first time last week. She toured several areas, including the Miami River area and Health District, and met with architects, according to The Real Deal. She was especially interested in the UM medical campus, which she said ‘would attract developers like us.’ She worried about luxury condos ‘dividing the community’ and high construction costs.

In downtown L.A., Chang’s firm is building Metropolis, which includes 350 condos. Studios there start at $600,000 and more expensive units sell for $2 million. That project is said to be 50% sold.

A recent press release from Greenland said that the firm was actively seeking growth opportunities ‘across the U.S.’

Chang has little tolerance for missed deadlines, and is said to expect her architects to work on Sundays. She oversees about $6 billion worth of projects.

Interested to see what they choose to do.

With that said, she’s worried luxury condos would divide the community, but is building $600K studios in Los Angeles?

I’m thinking she means luxury condos built on the site could create a physical barrier/disconnect between the existing health campus and future related developments

The Civic center is ripe for development and would actually be a great tech hub. There’s plenty of empty lots here as well as great access to mass transit. Interesting to see what they have in store.

Naples is a an area to check out. Private jet port and top spot for buying a second vacation home.

Greenland USA should take a close look at the opportunities in Broward County/Greater Fort Lauderdale. Low unemployment, more affordable development costs and an International Airport with DIRECT FLIGHTS to SHANGHAI ($1,000+/-), 2M population, $51K ave. household income & only 3.6% Asian population–huge room for growth. We’d welcome a China-Town with open arms.

Direct flights to Shanghai? Maybe on a Global Express.

Greenland USA should take a close look at Broward Co./Greater Fort Lauderdale. Direct Flight to Shanghai from FLL ($1,000+/-) 5-6 min. from downtown Low unemployment, lower development costs, 2M population, $51K ave. household income, All Aboard Train Depot, only 3.6% Asian population–we’d love a ‘China-Town’ here. Check us out…

I don’t think Boward County has a medical hub such as this.
