Tony Cho Focuses Boutique Realty Firm Metro 1 Properties On Urban Cores Transformation Pursues New Hotel Concept

Written by on July 14, 2011

At 32, Tony Cho has built a boutique realty firm with 30 associates that is contributing to the attractive transformation of Miami’s urban core.

With experience in public relations, hospitality and real estate, Mr. Cho married these talents to develop Metro 1 Properties based in Wynwood, which promotes sustainable practices.

"The mission behind Metro 1 is to promote sustainable urban real estate, cities, transportation, public-private partnerships," he said. "This has always been the concept behind Metro 1."

In six years, he has expanded the services the brokerage and investment company offers, which today encompass residential, industrial, hospitality and land acquisitions. The firm completed close to $90 million in 2010 sales.

Most recently, Metro 1 leased 160,000 square feet in the former Wynwood Free Trade Zone to the production company filming ABC’s new TV show, Charlie’s Angels.

With neighborhoods like Wynwood, the Design District and the Omni flourishing, Mr. Cho said he is working to attract restaurants and hotels.

"I plan on bringing in restaurants, hospitality, outlets," he said. "I’m bringing interesting brands and concepts to the areas we promote."

He is also pursuing a new hotel concept that is in early development stages, he added.

Mr. Cho shared his vision, plans and accomplishments with Miami Today reporter Yudislaidy Fernandez at Metro 1’s offices in Wynwood.To read the entire issue of Miami Today online, subscribe to e -Miami Today, an exact digital replica of the printed edition.
