Mayor Sharief speaks at Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting of Riviera Point Corporate Center in Miramar

Fri, Jun 9, 2017
I had the privilege to attend and speak at the 2nd Grand Opening for the Riviera Point Development Group in my District in the beautiful City of Miramar. The Riviera Point Development Group has completed this amazing 72,000-square-foot, 5 story, LEED certified Riviera Point Corporate Center just 2 years after completing their first Professional Center also in Miramar and the Group has utilized the EB-5 Investor VISA Program and funded construction of this new 5 story office building with foreign capital, injecting $15 million of foreign direct investment into Miramar’s local economy. Riviera Point raised funds from foreign investors applying for the EB-5 immigrant investor visa, which requires investing a minimum of $500,000 in a job-creating project to obtain a green card. Since 2012, Riviera Point’s EB-5 suburban developments have attracted $53 million in foreign capital to South Florida, created 1,120 jobs and enabled more than 170 foreign families to obtain U.S. residency. Congratulations and as we say: EVERYTHING YOU NEED, IT’S RIGHT HERE IN MIRAMAR! Mayor Barbara Sharief
