Ofer Mizrahi has been an active leader in Miami product and place making development projects for over 20 years. Mizrahi has an eye, a vision, a forward thinking style of frame and format. His first interior design project was a "future forward" product showroom in the Miami Design District before it was considered a safe place to frequent, and which is now known for luxury retail. Shortly thereafter he revitalized a "brownfield" warehouse facility in an adjacent neighborhood to be a focal point for art exhibits and events. That area is now known as Wynwood.
Always looking ahead, Mizrahi then set his sites on the the warehouse district in Miami's Upper Eastside and launched the MIAMI IRONSIDE project to form an enclave, a European-style village complex alongside the railroad. IRONSIDE is an ongoing organic development which caters to the community and the cultural shifts in art, architecture and design trends.
Mizrahi has been 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."
In a Wired Magazine interview (2014) with architect and industrial artist Ron Arad, he was quoted as saying about Mizrahi, " is it an oxymoron to say he's an idealistic developer? Anyway, he might be one." Florida Sun Lifestyle Magazine's article Destinations (2017), refers to Mizrahi as "Maestro" and "a visionary of the first hour." With circular economy strategies in mind and place, Mizrahi has his finger on the pulse.
