About Alexander Calzadilla

Alexander Calzadilla is a Cuban male originally from Philadelphia, who has happily called Miami his home since moving here at the age of 15. He attended Southwest Sr. High School and Florida International University, ultimately receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. While in college, he began working as a paralegal for the Law Offices of Jeffrey E. Reichenbacher, a position he kept for seven years after graduation. He subsequently worked at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius Associates before landing at Costa Nursery. After distinguishing himself with many accomplishments, he was promoted to the position of Director of Specialty Products, which included the orchid, bonsai and lucky bamboo departments. When Alex was first put in charge of the three departments, they ranked near the bottom. By the time he left Costa after seven years, Alex had transformed the floundering departments into unqualified successes, posting record earnings, sales and profitability. In 2008 Alex was named the Costa Employee of the Year. Alex now puts his formidable prowess as a businessman into his newest venture, Avant-Garde Home Furnishings, LLC, serving as Managing Partner.

Part 2: Art Deco DistrictMiami Beach


 Part 2 of a 5 part Miami Beach and Miami series dedicated to architecture and design

I went out for a drive today and honestly these two cities are both very modern, have great buildings that are unique, and are great cities to drive around in just to take a spin and enjoy the day sunlight, weather, and scenery. They are modern, contemporary, and have a young hip crowd making them two of the most trendy and young cities in the United States. Enjoy the following pictures of the beautiful Art Deco District in Miami Beach, Florida. Here the buildings that were once condemed and slated for demolition have been perfectly restored to their once gleaming beauty and a modern, contemporary level of interior design has been added, making it a new mecca for tourism and one of the most visited places in North America. 

I will continue to write about these cities in the following order with the following themes

Hope all of you enjoy these truly beautiful cities...
