ST Residential, an asset management company with a $4.5 billion real estate portfolio nationwide, launched its South Florida portfolio at an event at one of its luxury properties, Mint at Riverfront.
The 730 guests gathered to celebrate the official launch on Mint’s pool deck and enjoyed cocktails courtesy of Grey Goose Vodka. To kick off the celebration, the night began with three red-caped entertainers rappelling 16 floors down to the pool deck, who joined belly dancers to entertain the crowd. The spectacle was followed by a surprise performance from multi-Grammy Award winner Jorge Villamizar of Bacilos.
“The ST event was a success and represents a turning point in the Miami real estate market,” said Wade Hundley, CEO. “We wanted to officially introduce ST Residential to South Florida, our largest market nationwide, with a memorable night symbolic of our company’s strength.”
At ST Residential, the goal is to take a fresh look at the real estate market by rethinking everything from the ground up, Hundley said.
