After a busy, successful 2015 filled with sales and celebrations including the country’s largest disco ball at PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter’s sales gallery debut in April, OneWorld Properties is going full speed ahead in 2016.
- Brickell Ten is 98 percent sold. Construction of the 155-unit, 22-story building is nearing completion. The bold, contemporary tower has been topped off; installation of the windows and interior work is in progress. Closings are expected to begin mid-year.
- Terrazas Miami just reached a milestone, selling more than 50 percent of all available units. The 324-unit, two-tower leading-edge project fronts on the Miami River.
- PARAMOUNT Fort Lauderdale Beach is over 75 percent sold. Construction is on track, with the pouring of the third floor of the 95-unit, 18-story tower, and should be complete by next winter. Fort Lauderdale Beach’s preeminent oceanfront address released its four penthouses; one has sold and two are under negotiation.
- PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter downtown is over 40 percent sold. The 150-foot pilings began going in last fall. The official groundbreaking ceremony of the 500-plus-unit, 58-story tower is planned for March. Miami Worldcenter recently announced a positive shift from large mall anchors to high-street retail, defined by a critical mass of shops and boutiques in a pedestrian-oriented setting. The mall developers say the downtown project will become a confluence of art, entertainment, culture and transportation. Phase one of the 27-acre Miami Worldcenter development, including the signature PARAMOUNT 700-foot residential tower, walkable destination shopping streetscape, hotel and expo center, and apartments, is slated to be complete in 2018. It will be steps away from All Aboard Florida’s passenger rail transit station set to open in 2017.
- OneWorld employees traveled across the United States from New York to San Diego and visited eight countries (some multiple times) – Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, El Salvador, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela – in 2015. More travel is on the horizon for 2016, including trips to court international buyers in China, Colombia, Peru and Russia.
- President and CEO Peggy Fucci received two accolades in 2015 – the South Florida Business Journal’s 40 under 40 and the Sun Sentinel’s 17 Top Workplace Professionals.
- Peggy last year joined the board of Miami Bridge Youth & Family Services, Inc., Miami-Dade County’s only 24-hour emergency shelter for abused, neglected and abandoned youth ages 10-17. We took kids staying at Miami Bridge on exciting, inspirational tours of the Miami Herald, Biltmore Hotel and Ocean Drive Magazine and shared wonderful meals together. We coordinated the setup of computer labs at the Central and Homestead campuses. We look forward to continue raising money for this worthy organization and touching the lives of as many kids as possible. For each sale in Miami-Dade County, OneWorld gives $100 to Miami Bridge.
- Peggy was named in 2015 to the board of the Friends of Birch State Park to raise awareness of Hugh Taylor Birch State Park in Fort Lauderdale and funds to improve recreational access. OneWorld held an invigorating team-bonding experience at Birch State and plans to continue supporting this beautiful park. For each sale in Broward County, OneWorld contributes $100 to the organization.
- In 2015 we revamped owpbrokers.com to make it more user friendly, especially for mobile visitors. We added descriptions of South Florida’s exclusive neighborhoods and information about OneWorld Cares and began this blog.
- This year OneWorld is starting a newsletter highlighting company happenings, developer updates on projects, the team’s travels featuring a particular country and a staff restaurant pick. OneWorld Properties’ involvement in various projects also receives extensive media coverage.
The company anticipates launching the marketing and sales of another exciting luxury condo project in the first quarter. Stay tuned!
