Panama Canal fuels Miami real-estate boom

Monday, April 24, 2017

The folks who buy a three storey, 8,000 square foot penthouse at the Argentine-funded Arias tower for $6 million might actually smile at the “good deal” Miami represents in the global high-end luxury market, being fuelled in part by the expansion of the Panama Canal.
