Loretta Hadley Cockrum and family-owned Foram Group planning environmentally friendly behemoth for Brickell
The bulldozers are busy clearing ground to make way for a two-tower mixed-use complex on Brickell Avenue near the Miami River bridge that promises to set a new trend in environmentally friendly buildings.
The project, occupying a full block between Sixth and Seventh streets on the west side of Brickell Avenue that will include a pedestrian-friendly plaza, is the fulfillment of a long-held dream of Miami native Loretta Hadley Cockrum, who founded her family-owned Foram Group real estate asset management and development company in Atlanta in 1978.
Ms. Cockrum detailed what the development will comprise, how it is meeting tough green-building standards and what it will mean to the community in an interview with Miami Today international editor Michael Hayes.
