  1. I just read this study from the Bergstrom Center for Real Estate Studies at the University of Florida that reported more international investors have been showing interest in condo-conversions at least in the Orlando housing market. Just given the layout in Brickell, I'm assuming you saw some similar trends in the third quarter of this year.
