Business Development 

The Miami DDA promotes a strong Downtown Miami economy by attracting new business and local investment, promoting and strengthening industry clusters, and encouraging leadership and innovation.

To support local and relocating companies, we have staff members dedicated to staying current on all the relevant data and information. We actively manage key one-on-one relationships with real estate professionals, property owners, and prospective business representatives as well as being present at local economic development and real estate industry events. 

Beyond this highly personalized approach, we also leverage more traditional methods. We collect and analyze relevant market research, economic trends, and Downtown‐related news and policies.
 

Business Concierge
Additionally, we also offers a concierge style service for businesses. Much like going to the front desk when you’re traveling, our Business Concierge is your front-line resource for everything business related in Downtown Miami. Whether you need assistance with permitting, zoning, code enforcement or any City or County process, this is your point person.


No matter if you’re looking to start-up, launch, or grow your business, the Business Concierge can help you with:

  • Permitting and license process
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Site selection support
  • Resource recommendations
  • Step-by-step guidance
