    Checking the Google sat map of Mi,it seems that the city limits are very strict.

    Any political move,any public pressure to expand the limits & offer more virgin areas for development ?

    Extending the Urban Development Boundry is a big issue down here. Basically, Developers "encourage" politicians to do it so they can make money, but something like 80% of the population is really against it. The Everglades is a protected area, and you have some Indian Land out there too.

    Miami is already horribly overdeveloped, at least according to almost anyone ho lives here, so opening up "virgin" areas for development is not likely to happen too much. I think the corruption of local government and its ignoring of what people want will lead to some, but not as large scale as it has been.

    On the contrary,I believe that opening virgin lands to development,is an action which serves the interests of the poor people...

    The more houses & lots offered,the lower the prices...

    This is the magic of capitalism.

    Mia is 2X expensive than e.g Houston precisely for the reason that Mia has no more land to develop.

    It is a mistake of Miaers to reject development,while they or their ancestors benefitted from past developments...

    Other people want as well to live the American Dream,like them.

    But they cannot afford $3k rents & $500k prices...

    If land is opened for development,with strict standards,big subdivisions,

    like 1 acre lots,

    then that new Mia can become a model for quality of housing ...

    There are 10,000 empty condos in Brickell that say otherwise. Definitely no sortage of housing in Miami.
