CREW Miami Monthly Luncheon Meeting: Growth Spells Opportunity @ Four Seasons Brickell
Apr 25 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Investing in Education System Key to the Future of Miami’s Urban Core

Despite the rise of Miami’s urban core as a global business and cultural destination, the area’s educational infrastructure lags behind. As a result of rising residential and business populations, Downtown Miami and the Brickell corridor are now home to more than 15,350 children, a number that is expected to grow to 23,000 upon completion of additional projects currently underway. Join us to discuss the state of our educational offerings, the need for additional facilities in these areas, and the positive impact that more robust educational options would have on property values and future growth in these communities.

MODERATOR
Samuel Joseph, Director of Advocacy, Brickell Homeowners Association

Lisa Martinez, Chief Strategy Officer, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
Alicia Cervera, Board Member, Miami Downtown Development Authority
Alberto Milo, Principal and Senior Vice President, Related Group’s Urban Development Group
