HOW IN THE WORLD DID WE  GET HERE?

By Eric Glazer, Esq.

So, I get a call a few weeks ago from a reporter at The New York Times.  He was doing a story about the incredible number of condominiums in Miami and how fast they were all built.  How the entire skyline on the coast changed dramatically in the past 40 years or so and if itís possible that The Champlain Towers in Miami was just a freak occurrence, or something that we need to start thinking about regarding all condominiums that were rushed through and given the green light.  Is it possible for other similarly situated buildings to start falling down?

 

The story is somewhat startling but not surprising.  Itís a story about greed, out of control construction, tampering with Mother Nature, little to no inspections, rushed through permits,  law firms and politicians helping developers  and The Florida Legislature turning a blind eye towards all of it.

 

If youíre living in a building in Miami, this is a must read.  If you donít live in Miami, but are concerned about whether or not your building was built properly, itís a must read as well.  Besides myself, there are politicians, builders, developers and other experts that tell their side of the story in detail.  Some of it is shocking.

 

Because so many turned their backs years ago, no wonder the story is called THE TICKING CLOCK OF MIAMIíS CONDO EMPIRE.  You should also know that coincidentally, Robert Lisman, who is the resident from Champlain Towers East, is the producer of our Condo Craze You Tube channel.  Itís a long article but again, itís a must read.  To read it, click here:
