“Over the past three and a half decades, The Related Group has been a pioneer in the transformation of Miami into a world-class destination. One neighborhood at a time, our market-leading luxury high-rises have reshaped the skyline and reimagined the lifestyle of Brickell, Midtown, and South Beach. With District 225, we are bringing the same spirit to the very heart of the city.”
Jorge M. Pérez
Chairman, CEO & Founder
Established in 1979, The Related Group is Florida’s leading developer of sophisticated metropolitan living and one of the country’s largest real estate conglomerates. Since its inception, the privately held company has built, rehabilitated, and managed over 100,000 condominium, rental, and commercial units. The firm is one of the largest Hispanic-owned businesses in the United States with a development portfolio in excess of $40 billion in 40+ years.
The Related Group has earned awards and recognition throughout the United States and internationally for its visionary designs and development of luxury condominiums, market-rate rentals, mixed-use centers, and affordable properties – often in emerging neighborhoods – that impact the lives of all demographics. Related has also redefined real estate by diversifying both its products and buyers, expanding internationally while also sponsoring public art installations that enhance cities’ global culture and streetscapes.
With over 35 years of combined experience, Miami-born and –raised Oscar Rodriguez and Ricardo Vadia together make a formidable force. The two began their friendship and professional partnership while working in the early 2000s at The Related Group, where they delivered more than 5,800 luxury condominiums, rental, and affordable housing units, with a development value of more than $1 billion. Individually, their vast experience spans a variety of development disciplines, and together, their extensive market knowledge and impeccable track record catapulted them to the top of South Florida’s real estate industry. After leading their own firms separately, Rodriguez and Vadia reunited in 2015 to form ROVR Development.
