From Skyline to Culture: The Jorge M. Pérez Effect on Miami

Meet Jorge M. Pérez, the mastermind behind Miami's iconic skyline. Born in Argentina to Cuban-exiled parents. Pérez took his talents to Michigan for his education before diving into Miami's economic development scene. He's more than a real estate mogul; he's a change-maker. With his firm, the Related Companies, he initially focused on affordable housing and has since become a leading global high-rise developer, often overseeing more than 50 projects simultaneously!

But his influence doesn't stop at real estate. His philanthropic spirit is evidenced by his generous $30 million donation to the Pérez Art Museum Miami. Jorge M. Pérez is a man whose legacy extends far beyond steel and concrete.
