Why Miami (Part 2)? Star architects leave a mark on Miami- Over the last decade, notable successes by well known international architects have turned the city into a magnet for the who’s who architecture

Foster + Partners have released new images of the luxurious, 18-story Faena House currently being constructed in Miami. Argentinean developer Alan Faena, who is best known for transforming Buenos Aires’ abandoned Puerto Madero neighborhood into the city’s most vital culture center, commissioned the project, which will mark the first phase of the anticipated Faena District in Miami Beach. Once complete, the district will include a five-star hotel, a large and versatile Arts Center, an OMA-designed parking complex, a luxury retail complex, and a marina.

“We are creating far more than a real estate project in Miami Beach. We are curating a new neighborhood, with the most exceptional team of talent from around the world,” said Alan Faena. “We believe Faena House will be the cornerstone of a neighborhood that is the new paradigm of the Miami lifestyle, one where design, refined hospitality and culture converge.”

Gune Foundation social partner of Rent4Days

guné1Founded in 2004 by the will of an entrepreneur who decides to donate part of his estate to social interest works dedicated to improve the living conditions of the poorest communities in Senegal, the Guné Foundation has 10 years working in projects of social cooperation and Rent4Days has became partner to its initiatives since 2012.

Aware that a perspective of charity and a form of paternalistic solidarity is not the right way for a real and autonomous development of countries with difficulties, Guné Foundation’s projects have a cross and egalitarian vision to achieve an integrated development of rural communities with which they work (in the region of Kolda), through a food safety program based on boosting the local economy, synthesizable on the following objectives:

– Ensuring safety of subsistence crops and diversifies production.

– Strengthening the local voluntary sector through the support and creation of agricultural cooperatives, with special emphasis on the role of women.

– Increasing the management skills and the organization of members of agricultural cooperatives to enhance their role in local economic development.

 

As a partner and promoter of the initiatives of the foundation, Rent4Days recommends the participation on Tuesday, the 23rd of December, at 19:30, Civic Center Pati Llimona (c / Regomir, 3 Barcelona) to the presentation of the documentary “POR UNA VIDA DIGNA“(For a dignified life).

The financial and economic crisis that affects Spain reveals a violation and a restriction of the human rights, mainly affecting the immigrant population, which is often the impotent and weaker part of the society. The documentary treats precisely this topic: three immigrants from sub-Saharan Afric living in Barcelona without formal documentation and survive on junk found in the garbage of the city. Through their life stories and expert’s reflections the documentary is trying to highlight the human rights violations suffered by these people.

After the projection there will be a roundtable discussion with the protagonists.

Our suggestion, do not miss it.

Christmas in Madrid

Christmas in Madrid
Christmas in Madrid

It’s like a not written rule, everyone still get too dazed and excited as soon as the month of December comes with all the Holidays and main of them is Christmas. Everything is perceived in a different way and became more fascinating. Well, Madrid makes no exception to this rule. The city gets completely transformed during the holidays and you can really breathe and feel the Christmas spirit. Usually, this “only once a year” atmosphere in the city kicks off with the opening of its Christmas market in Plaza Mayor, although other Christmas-related activities takes place all over Madrid. You’ll find nativity scenes, the famous three Kings procession, shopping, concerts, special food and the unavoidable light shows.

So as a traveler, how can you join in the festivities? Walk at night along the Gran Vía to see the special light displays is a good starting point, ice skating at Retiro Park, have a late night drink at the Mercado de San Antón (open until 12 a.m.), visit the various nativity scenes at the Royal Palace and Almudena Cathedral and eat the 12 grapes, one grape at a time, (making a wish) with each stroke of midnight in Puerta del Sol. Beyond that, one of the essential activities associated with Christmas is participating to the “Lotería de Navidad”. Almost 75 percent of the population participates in this 200-year-old grand lottery. According to the rumors, the most gambled number of this year (for some remote reason) is 14 and we are pretty sure that everyone in Spain will be in front of the TV on the day of the drawing.

These celebrations manage to spread to every corner of the city as millions of foreigners and locals alike come together to celebrate one of the most wonderful and joyous times of the year with great food and great drinks, because we all know that, Christmas is definitely a time for food. Spaniards usually eat sea food on Christmas Eve and on New Year’s. The reason of this menu originates in the idea of celebrating with an expensive and unconventional meal. Normally a good holyday’s season menu includes crab, lobster and oysters. If in other countries after food people eat the desserts, in Spain people take “turrones” (nougat) and “mazapanes” (marzipan) for dessert. The Spanish nougat is not like the one known in America, UK or Eastern Europe. This is made with almonds, honey and sugar. There is a very impressible variety of nougat in Spain, but the most popular are: Jijona and Alicante. Jijona or Xixona nougat is soft made out of almond’s paste and honey. Alicante nougat is crunchy and made of whole almonds and nougat candy. There are also different flavors of nougat with chocolate, toffee, coffee, yogurt, fruits and liquors.

Well beyond all the advice, the most important, just try to have fun and celebrate at your best.

Feliz navidad,

Shopping night in Barcelona

shopping night in Barcelona
shopping night in Barcelona

A great shopping  shopping night in Barcelona is coming soon on the 4th of December! If in past edition Shopping Night Barcelona had transformed Passeig de Gracia into a great opera house, this year the famous commercial street of Barcelona will be converted into a little Hollywood of the fifty’s. The 5th edition of the gala shopping event has the golden age of Hollywood as central theme, so the choice of the actress Sophia Loren as poster image seems absolutely adequate.

Classics silent films will be projected in Salvador Espriu gardens and some live acts and performances will be staged in the adjoining streets during shopping night in Barcelona. Now the most relevant information: there will be no traffic during the event so shoppers can walk anywhere on the Passeig de Gracia and the normal opening hour of the shops of the Eixample district will be extended until 01:00 for the occasion.

If you are going to visit shopping night in Barcelona I would recommend you this apartment calls Urgell.

The apartment is on Diputació Street, a safe, quiet street with many restaurants, supermarkets and banks nearby. It is located between two of Barcelona’s main attractions, ten minutes walking from Plaza Catalunya and Plaza España. Public transport connections in the area are also excellent. The apartment is very close to a Aerobus stop (Urgell): direct bus from Barcelona airport (Terminal 1 and 2) to Barcelona’s city center, every 5 minutes, 365 days a year. This apartment is ideal for groups or a large family.

Why Miami Part 1

Why Miami ? A place where culture and art has an important place, willing to grow with emotions and vibration.

With miles of sandy beaches dotted with classic Art Deco architecture, world-class art museums, and a glittering nightlife, Miami Beach ranks among America’s most iconic cities. During Art Basel, it embraces the art world with special exhibitions at museums and galleries across the city, transforming the week into a dense and dynamic cultural event.

In 1970, a few Basel galleries put their passion and determination behind an ambitious vision, and now, over forty years later, Art Basel is recognized as the premier international art show, providing a platform for artists and galleries from around the world.

Over 250 of the world’s leading galleries participate, drawing over 70,000 visitors. Leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa show historical work from the masters of Modern and contemporary art, as well as newly created pieces by emerging stars. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs and films of the highest quality are on display at the main exhibition hall, while ambitious artworks and performances become part of the landscape at nearby beaches, Collins Park and SoundScape Park.

The Wynwood Arts District is home to over 70 Art Galleries, Retail Stores, Antique Shops, Eclectic Bars, and one of the largest open-air street-art installations in the world. Wynwood Arts District, one of the largest and most prominent creative communities in the United States.

Taking over what used to be the warehouse and manufacturing district of Greater Miami, developers have rehabilitated neglected warehouses, shuttered factories, and other unused buildings, transforming them into the numerous art complexes, galleries, performing art spaces, restaurants, cafes, and other creative businesses that are seen here today.

And you can’t miss the opportunity to stay close to the most interesting events because traffic is terrible and you can spend hours in the car

We Boost Your Income While You Relax

This is not about apartments or houses, this is not about rentals, this is not about Miami, I am going to speak about how to boost your income while you relax. People work and have some savings coming from their income, they have to decide about the best investment. If you want a low risk investment with high profitability (10-20%) you could invest in real estate assets which you can rent for short period of time

Why short term rentals?

There’s a clear need for people which prefer to stay similar to at home while travelling. Those traveling as a family or group of friends often want spacious accommodations and kitchens. Throughout the world, some travelers prefer private dwellings to hotels.

6 things to keep on mind while considering  investments in Miami:

  1. Over 15,000,000 people visit Miami yearly, there is not enough short term rentals available.
  2. Rentals for short periods of time can be done according to regulations, as a residential property that is rented to a visitor for less than 6 months.
  3. Miami is a place everyone loves and want to stay in.
  4. Income: Price is in the range between a hotel and a long term agreement.
  5. Property value when short term rentals are allowed vary between 50% to 100% in comparison with properties where short term rentals are not allowed.
  6. You can trust Rent4days during purchasing process and short term rentals management later.
