The Fallacy of Timing
Especially in South Florida, real estate is considered a seasonal industry; however, the truth is, in today’s world, timing is less and less important. Why?

One of the first murals, located at 524 W Atlantic (also recently acquired by BH3), was painted by David Paul Kay a New York City-based artist known for his style, almost exclusively in black and white, and is only one of ...

That’s all going to change as the city recently gave away – yes, gave away – 7.4 acres of land from 600 to 800 West Atlantic Avenue to developer BH3 Management, the only group that offered to both make the area into a “destination” and provide over 700 parking spaces.
The $100 million mixed-use project, AltaWest, is comprised of about 3 blocks including:
- 43,000 square feet of ground floor retail
- 21,600 square feet of professional office space
- 1 33,000-square-foot grocery store
- 165 residential units totaling 272,242 square feet
