Neeeeeehhhhh!!!

Miami has limited growth potential because of 2 basic factors.

1. Low wages
2. Overvalued Properties

The worst combination posssible for a major US City. You can develop all you want, if nobody can buy it, you'll just have a bunch of empty condos kinda like you have now.

Not to mention an unstable platform to make the city any bigger. We are pressed in between the everglades and the ocean. Also, the fact that people have to live in their own 'cliques' or immigrant enclaves here means that population density will never be that of a mega city - people have to live far away/spread out from those who the don't like or trust...

Money23- Why would Miami even try to compete with NYC, Chicago, or LA? It just wouldn't make sense...
