May 22, 2019 315


Italian-born developer Ugo Colombo is the man behind Miami’s tallest condo tower, Brickell Flatiron. The 736-foot-high tower is also the tallest condominium south of New York City. Mr. Colombo, 58, began investing in Downtown Brickell—now a bustling urban center—in the 1990s, starting with the Bristol Tower and later the Santa Maria Tower.

Since then, the area of Downtown Miami has seen more than 150 towers, which are home to more than 92,000 residents. The neighborhood’s population has more than doubled since 2000 and grown by 40% since 2010, according to 2018 demographics from the Miami Downtown Development Authority. Today, more than 92,000 people live in the area and that number is expected to eclipse 100,000 in the next three years.
