An American Success Story with a Cuban Touch
In 1963, a young Cuban architect and builder emigrated to Miami, determined to rebuild the successful contracting and real estate investment business he was forced to leave behind in his lost homeland. Beginning with small apartment buildings and dedicating himself to a pursuit of perfection that required him to “live and sleep with the business,” José Milton rebuilt his real estate empire in Miami.
In the brief span of just 20 years, J. Milton & Associates dramatically influenced the landscape of northern Miami-Dade County. A key result was pioneering the residential and commercial development of the City of Sunny Isles Beach, providing a catalyst for the identity of the new city, which was incorporated in 1997. On a single stretch along and adjacent to Collins Avenue, a complete collection of ten significant J. Milton & Associates residential developments have been created and successfully marketed – a total investment of over $1.3 billion to date, with $500 million in additional development committed for completion over the next six years – just in the City of Sunny Isles Beach alone.
Since 1963, J. Milton and Associates has built and developed over 50,000 residential units, and currently owns over 10,000 residential units with a valuation of over $2 billion.
As a vertically integrated operation, the company performs its own land acquisition, land planning, construction, financing, and sales and marketing. Every stage of each project is subjected to rigorous value engineering; top management is involved in every decision. This hands-on involvement and meticulous attention to detail are hallmarks of the J. Milton & Associates development philosophy.
