International real estate federation FIABCI launched its business council at a party at the River Yacht Club last week.
Lennar International along with VS Miami Properties, Picmiller and Coldwell Banker sponsored the event, which included a swearing in of new members. The Miami Association of Realtors’ CEO Teresa King Kinney, COO and chief marketing officer Deborah Boza-Valledor, and senior vice president of public relations and international Lynda Fernandez were also on hand at the event along the Miami River.
The River Yacht Club, a restaurant and boat marina venture in the Miami River district, opened last year at 401 Southwest 3rd Avenue. The Chetrit Group and Dupoux Partners turned the property into an indoor-outdoor restaurant, with a garden that accommodates up to 250 people, along with 100-seat indoor dining. It is not far from the site where the New York-based Chetrit Group plans a nearly $1 billion mixed-use project. – Katherine Kallergis
