Is Miami Addicted to Famous Architects?

There has been some talk around the Blogosphere about Miami's ultra plush luxury condos sprouting up and how the pr machine is on overdrive with semi-celebrity architects being the driving brand name behind these incredible properties. Perhaps nobody is more well known locally than the renowned Kobi Karp.

Some popular projects with Miami architects include Palau sunset harbour who was designed by internationally renowned Kobi Karp. He is known as a Miami master of the skyline.

Although not directly involved in the sales of luxury condos at the properties like Palau Sunset Harbour, the name recognition of the famous architects certainly helps new buyers into the real estate agencies around Miami Beach.
