The country’s top developers, brokers, architects and other industry professionals showed up in force for The Real Deal‘s annual South Florida showcase and forum, which brought together more than 4,000 real estate enthusiasts and served as a platform to highlight some of the region’s hottest projects.

Hiten Samtani, The Real Deal‘s managing web editor, sat down with some of these key players — including Richard LeFrak, Don Peebles, Alicia Cervera, Edgardo Defortuna and Daniel de la Vega —  to gauge what’s next for the region’s current condo boom, why growing construction costs are worrying developers and how Miami architecture is influencing design worldwide. Here are some highlights from the conversations.
