Collaboration: Profile of the Graham family of developers
The Graham family says its deal with the Ghermezians won’t change its quality oriented approach to development.
Miami’s storied Graham family created the city of Miami Lakes, home to 31,000 people. It produced a publisher of the Washington Post as well as governor and later U.S. Sen. Bob Graham. Yet, now, as one of the most influential families in Florida begins developing its last major chunk of land, it’s almost an afterthought in the public debate. “We’re kind of the caboose on the train,” says Graham Cos. CEO Stu Wyllie.
The train, in Wyllie’s analogy, is the parcel next door to the Grahams’ acreage where Triple Five, a Canadian developer owned by Canada’s Ghermezian family, wants to build 6.2 million square feet of mall and theme park space plus 2,000 hotel rooms.
