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.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
