Meet America’s Most Under-The-Radar Real Estate Developers Who Just Built The Finest Residences In The World

It’s been a dizzying few months for the news cycle.

President Joe Biden is officially in. Hedge funds are bleeding thanks to a Reddit sub-group (what is that?) while a global pandemic still rages. Tom Brady, at age 43, is about to play in his 10th Super Bowl in twenty years.

Meanwhile, thirty minutes north of downtown Miami, a Florida real estate dynasty that’s been called the ”other Trumps” for decades has been too busy building their next billion-dollar masterpiece to pay attention to the outside noise.

Few people have more experience in the ultra-high net worth real estate space than South-African born businessman Jules Trump. Along with his younger brother and lifelong business partner, Eddie, and his wife of 50 years, Stephanie, Jules is co-chairman of The Trump Group, which over the past four decades has assembled a sprawling entrepreneurial empire from real estate and hotels in Florida and California to technology start-ups in Tel Aviv.

15 Biggest Real Estate Companies in the World

In this article, we are going to list the 15 biggest real estate companies in the world. Click to skip ahead and jump to the 5 biggest real estate companies in the world. The real estate industry is a big business that generates hundreds of billions of dollars of revenue annually, and there are plenty of opportunities for investors to make a profit. The real estate industry includes many aspects of a property, including all the development, valuation, marketing, sale, leasing, and management of commercial, industrial, residential, and agricultural properties.

If we come to think of it, real estate is a cyclical industry that responds to macroeconomic trends such as interest rates, population growth, and economic strength. Today, the real estate industry is one of the most highly profitable sectors of the U.S. economy and remains to provide opportunities for interested and motivated investors. But before that, the industry experienced a rollercoaster of events that marked the history of real estate in the country. Real estate rose in the post-World War II economic boom of the 1950s, plunged in the inflation-ridden 1970s, soared again in the early 1980s until the depression at the end of that decade, and

What will the post-pandemic fashion world look like? The only way is upcycling for these young Irish designers

After decades of unsustainable practices, it only took a global pandemic to dismantle the fashion industry’s dysfunctional calendar and unethical supply chains. Despite being one of the most damaging industries in the world, responsible for immense amounts of landfill, water pollution and exploitative human labour, fast fashion thrived in our pre-Covid world.

One of the silver linings of lockdown has been a shift towards conscious consumerism — the yearning for a new dress every Saturday night has all but gone out the window; we are buying less and, for the most part, there has been a sustained effort to buy from independent and local businesses.

Reworked and upcycled clothing has found its place in the zeitgeist thanks to a new DIY movement that has been thriving online, particularly via social media and resale platforms. Lyst, the world’s largest fashion search platform, reported a 42pc search increase for upcycled clothing in its 2020 Conscious Fashion Report. A quick browse on Depop, the reselling platform beloved by Gen Z shoppers, returns hundreds of upcycled items — but the most exciting upcycled clothing is being pioneered by a young generation of fashion graduates whose commitment to sustainability means they think, and source,

Corporate Real Estate Planning In A Post-Pandemic World

CEO, Americas at The Instant Group overseeing the company’s expansion and operations throughout the Americas.

Companies are now well into their fourth quarter of remote work, and one analysis of 10 major cities shows that just 25{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} of workers are back in office buildings. Gone are the days when company culture resides in the conference room, meeting room or common area. Today, office space can be anywhere — the bedroom, home office, flex space or coworking spot.

While some companies like Twitter and Square have committed to remote work for the long haul, many others are in a place to rethink office space planning and their commercial real estate needs. What is the office layout of the future? When corporations are space planning their next two, five or 10 years, what square footage will they need? How will companies strategize utilization for commercial space?

At Instant, long before the Covid-19 pandemic, we advised businesses on effective corporate office space strategies, helping them to secure space at speed and delivering and managing turnkey, custom workspaces. With the pandemic came a fundamental change in how and where we work, and it is expected that the changes will be for the long

The estate was previously owned by former Ford CEO Jacques Nasser before it hit the market over the summer, the outlet reported. However, after sitting on the market to the tune of $19.9 million, Nasser dumped the property in September to Atlantic View Holdings LLC, according to property records obtained by FOX Business.

Inquiries to Thiel’s office were not returned.

The property was built in 1995 and has nine bedrooms and a dozen bathrooms, according to a property listing. However, one of the homes on the sprawling two-lot property was also used as the former set of the MTV reality show, “The Real World” in the late 1990s.

The four-bedroom, three-bath home had housed seven cast members of “The Real World: Miami”
