Condos Everywhere

Condos Everywhere
Miami has 14,566 condominium units under construction as of Sept. 30, with another 63,776 in the permitting pipeline or approved for construction.

By contrast, 9,250 condo units were completed in Miami between 1995 and Sept. 30, 2005.

  • Greatly: I will be spending more because I buy a lot of beef and pork
  • Some: I will likely be switching to cheaper cuts or to poultry
  • Not much: I have been cutting back on meat anyway
  • Not at all: I don't eat beef or pork
