Related Group’s Glittering Issue Launch Party Generates Star Power

Downtown Miami’s Casa Bella Residences by B&B Italia was the scene as Miami’s movers and shakers in real estate, finance and architecture gathered for cocktails, networking and general revelry. August cover stars—the brothers Jon Paul Pérez (president of Related Group) and Nick Pérez (senior vice president of Related Group)—cut dashing figures as they spoke with editor-in-chief Drew Limsky about their current cover story.

The venue was filled with modern art, a tower model and room designs for the upcoming condo tower (interiors by Piero Lissoni). Guests included Bernardo Fort Brescia, founder of Arquitectonica—who will grace an upcoming cover with his son Ray Fort.  Arquitectonica is the architect for Casa Bella.

Synovus Bank was the featured sponsor.

SFBW’s team was there in force, led by managing director Kim Sarni, Lifestyle Media Group president Jeff Dinetz, Lifestyle magazine publisher Michelle Simon, creative director Melanie Smit and art director Frank Papandrea.

South Florida Business & Wealth just earned five awards from the Florida Magazine Association, including Best Magazine Website, Best Overall Writing and a trio of design awards, including Best Overall Design.
