Ofer Mizrahi has been an active leader in Miami real estate development for 20 years. His first project was a showroom in the Design District before it was considered a safe place to frequent, and which is now known for luxury retail as the Miami Design District. Shortly thereafter he revitalized a "brownfield" warehouse facility in an adjacent neighborhood, which is now the very popular Wynwood, art district.
Always looking ahead, the warehouse district alongside the Florida Eastcoast railroad in Miami's Upper Eastside caught his eye and has since become the home to the IRONSIDE project which encompasses numerous blocks, buildings and businesses which form an enclave, a European-style village complex.
Once honored by March of Dimes Building Our Community Awards for “Community Excellence in Architecture & Engineering,” and referred to by The Wall Street Journal as a pioneer in the community with regard to “seeing the value of eco-friendly construction materials, and in so doing, he encourages businesses to set new standards in green architecture and design."
Wired Magazine’s October 2014 interview with architect and industrial artist Ron Arad was quoted as saying about Mizrahi, " is it an oxymoron to say he's an idealistic developer? Anyway, he might be one."
