Miami: A thriving hub for opportunity

At LHi, we've always believed that where you work should be as exciting as what you do. That's why our newest office location is nothing short of exciting! 

In this article, we'll take you on a journey through the 'Magic City' (it’s not its nickname for nothing), showcasing why it's not only a fantastic place to live but also an amazing opportunity for career growth. 


The Miami Job Market 

Miami's job market is thriving. In fact, according to data from PitchBook, Silicon Valley ranked first last year in terms of venture capital investments and the number of deals (1).The city has transformed into a tech and innovation hub, making it the perfect place for ambitious professionals to thrive. Miami offers a diverse range of job opportunities across various industries, including tech, built environment, and clean energy, which is why it's the ideal place to open three of our growing brands: Lawrence Harvey (Tech), Harper Harrison (Built Environment) and Piper Maddox (Clean Energy). 

Tech giants like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, along with various rapidly growing built environment and clean energy companies, have established a significant presence in Miami. This has created a dynamic ecosystem that fosters innovation and collaboration. Additionally, the city's proximity to Latin America and Europe makes it an ideal location for companies with a global outlook. 


Cost of Living 

Miami is known for its beautiful beaches, exciting nightlife, and a lifestyle like no other. So, you must be thinking, "What about the cost of living?" Surprisingly, Miami offers a balanced cost of living compared to other major U.S. cities. 

While housing costs can vary depending on the neighborhood, Miami offers a wide range of options to suit every budget. From luxurious waterfront condos to trendy urban apartments, you can find the perfect place to call home without breaking the bank. 

But the main bit that everyone wants to know... In Miami, businesses and individuals pay no personal income taxes. Florida has a comparatively low corporate income tax rate of 5.5%, with no inventory tax, no unitary tax, and several sales tax exemptions. (2) 

So, what does that mean? This means you get to keep more of your hard-earned money, making it the perfect opportunity to explore the famous Miami cuisine, from unique dishes to delicious alcoholic drinks. 


Getting Around Miami 

Miami's transportation infrastructure is designed to keep you moving efficiently, so you no longer need to endure a grueling commute. With an expanding network of public transit options, including buses, Metrorail, and Metromover, you can navigate the city with ease. In fact, Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) boasts the title of Florida's largest transit system and the 15th largest in the United States. (3) 

For those craving an even simpler life, many Miami residents embrace the car-free lifestyle, thanks to countless bike lanes and an abundance of pedestrian-friendly streets. Plus, if you choose to live near our new office location, you might just find yourself enjoying a quick and stress-free walk or bike ride to work. 


Miami Beyond 9 to 5: Things to Do and Explore 

One of the biggest perks of working in Miami is that the city has something for everyone, from art to food and everything in between, extending far beyond the traditional 9-to-5 grind. 

From its world-famous beaches to its rich cultural scene, there's something for everyone to explore in this dynamic city. You can soak up the sun on South Beach, savor the flavors of Little Havana, or enjoy the art and design of the Wynwood Walls. Whether you're a nature enthusiast looking to explore the Everglades or a night owl seeking the city's nightlife, Miami ensures that your time here goes far beyond the usual workday routine, and our new office can't wait to continue exploring their new home!
