Elinette Ruiz-Diaz de la Portilla was recently quoted in a South Florida Business Journal article discussing the impacts of a developer’s proposed apartment project in the Miami-Dade area. The Gunster attorney highlighted how the recent growth in Florida has affected the South Florida housing market.

“Over the last year rental rates in South Florida, including Miami-Dade County, have increased faster than anywhere else in the nation, forcing some residents to relocate, and resulting in a workforce drain in Miami-Dade County,” commented Ruiz-Diaz de la Portilla.
