    Broward and Miami-Dade counties both made huge gains over the past year in their attractiveness for real estate investment and development, according to a new study conducted for the Urban Land Institute by PwC.

The annual Emerging Trends in Real Estate study surveyed over 1,600 real estate experts about market trends. Respondents were asked their views on real estate in 78 U.S. markets.

 

Fort Lauderdale/Broward County jumped to No. 6 in the ranking of markets to watch, gaining 29 spots from last year’s survey.

Broward's LauderAle Beats The Big Breweries

Broward's LauderAle Beats The Big Breweries at Best Florida Beer Champioinships

LauderAle took home a silver medal at this year’s Best Florida Beer Championships, and that came as quite a surprise to the Fort Lauderdale brewery’s owner.

Kyle Jones co-founded LauderAle back in 2013, and while it has grown dramatically since then, it was still one of the smaller breweries in the competition. To win one of the top awards –for the second year in a row, actually – was a bit of a shock to Jones.

“We never really expected to win the first time, so winning this year again was just really a surprise,” Jones says.

The Best Florida Beer Championships is held every year, an event sanctioned by the Beer Judge Certification Program. The championship culminates in winners being announced

Hyperloop One, a start-up company in Los Angeles, proposes using a system of vacuum-sealed tubes that will create a low pressure system to allow trains, or "pods," to move at high speeds with little resistance inside from air pressure.

The company, which plans a public trial of the system this summer, is now considering 11 routes in the U.S. for further development, of which the Miami-to-Orlando route is one. If the system is built, it would take less than a half-hour to travel from South Florida to central Florida. Normal travel time between the markets usually takes between three to four hours by car.

Rooftop, Fort Lauderdale’s First Top-Of-The-Town Bar, Aims To Open This Summer

Next month The Restaurant People will begin construction on the aptly named Rooftop, a bar-slash-restaurant eight stories above Las Olas Boulevard.

It will occupy a 4,000-square-foot roof on top of the new KO Lawyers building at the corner of Las Olas and Andrews Avenue. Still-being-developed menu items will be brought up from a kitchen on the ground floor. 

The design will feel like a chic resort patio, with planters of bamboo and a vine-covered trellis running over a long retro-look bar. Couches and lounge chairs will cover an area that blends turf, tile and outdoor rugs. It’ll be part
