How much value does hiring a star architect – or starchitect – add to a project in Miami’s extremely competitive condo development market?

A distinguished panel of real estate players debated this subject and more during last week’s roundtable hosted by The Real Deal at the Miami site of the Grove Grand Bay condo project. The roundtable included starchitects Bjarke Ingels and Chad Oppenheim, developer David Martin and residential brokers Esther Percal and Mayi de la Vega. Condo Vultures founder Peter Zalewski moderated an animated and informative discussion.

After the discussion, hundreds of guests enjoyed a cocktail hour and reception at the Grove Grand Bay sales center. In an exclusive TRD video, residential market experts Dora Puig and Ron Shuffield weighed in on the starchitecture debate.
