TRD insider interview: Scott Leventhal talks Metropica

Leventhal says Broward County and Miami-Dade are the same for Latin buyers

Scott Leventhal, a fourth-generation developer and co-founder of the Trillist Companies, spoke with The Real Deal‘s Managing Editor Ina Cordle about his company’s development Metropica and how he views the market in Broward County.

He said the group launched sales last month for YOO at Metropica, one of the project’s eight residential towers, and he has seen a large demand from Latin America. The 263-unit tower has sold roughly 80 units already, and Leventhal said it will break ground sometime this summer.

“[Miami-]Dade County and Broward County are really one and the same in the eyes of the Latin American consumer,” he said. “They’re more comfortable with their buying decisions in Broward.”

Leventhal was a panelist for TRD’s Broward Real Estate Forum & Showcase, which was held on April 23 at the Design Center of the Americas in Dania. The event featured two panels: the first was on Broward County’s evolution and future of foreign investment in South Florida.
