Miami-based Fortune International Group and Bay Harbor Islands-based Blue Road announced that Nexo Residences, a 15-story condominium project planned for construction in North Miami Beach with unrestricted home-sharing rental capabilities, is now designated for EB-5 Program investment. Located at 13899 Biscayne Boulevard, Nexo Residences is one of the first condo projects in the rapidly growing area that offers short-term rental capability without restrictions amidst its 254 residences. Designed by Frankel Benayoun Architects Inc. with consultation from internationally-renowned architect Carlos Ott, and common areas, residential interiors, and landscaping curated by Urban Robot, the project’s well-thought, resort-style amenities are coupled with connectivity throughout to make one’s stay on the property seamless – giving meaning to the brand’s name, Nexo, which is “nexus” in Spanish, a central point for its location, lifestyle and technology. 

Due to a limited number of approved condominiums in Florida under the Program, this news presents a rare opportunity for foreign nationals to capitalize on establishing a pathway to U.S. citizenship. To comply, foreign nationals must invest a minimum of $800,000 in Nexo Residences and follow the required process under the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for eligibility to receive a green card, officially known as a permanent resident card. Nexo Residences’ EB-5 designation is on the heels of President Biden’s re-authorization in March of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Regional Center Program, following a multi-year hiatus from Covid.

“There is tremendous demand for investors to pursue this opportunity through Nexo Residences, and we are already seeing foreigners from many countries inquiring due to pent up interest in the EB-5 Program,” saidEdgardo Defortuna, president and CEO of Fortune International Group, one of South Florida’s preeminent residential real estate development, sales and marketing leaders for nearly 40 years. “Timing could not be riper to introduce the project as an investment vehicle and provide a new avenue to reach a diverse pool of investors. We are pleased to be partnering with Blue Road, which has more than a handful of EB-5 real estate developments in their portfolio.”

“We have identified a market need in many facets via Nexo Residences, one of which strongly supports EB-5 opportunities and job creation,” added Jorge Savloff, CEO of Blue Road, the Florida-based integrated developer of hospitality, residential, commercial, and mixed-use projects with a track record in EB-5 real estate product. “The recent news of the currency exchange rates and ongoing increase in international travel are igniting further interest in this as an ideal model for foreign national investment.”
