Jorge Perez Slams Developers For Proposing Condo Projects That ‘Don’t Make Sense’

Related Group’s Jorge Perez thinks that are condo projects proposed in Miami that “don’t make sense” and “should not be developed.”

Perez told The Real Deal that developers have come to Miami from Colombia and Argentina who “don’t know the market,” and that some are proposing projects that wouldn’t work “even in a good market.”

Perez didn’t specify which projects he was referring to, saying he didn’t want to throw anyone under the bus.

According to Perez, the strength of Miami’s condo market is almost impossible to predict, since around 80 percent of sales are to foreigners. Demand in Miami will rise and fall based on conditions in places such as Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela, he said.
