In the past five years, Brickell and Downtown Miami have been in the midst of a significant urban transformation for a true 24-hour live, work, play environment. This mobile workshop will provide a complete overview of the Downtown area — from the Omni and central business district, all the way to magnificent Brickell Avenue. The tour highlights include insight of public/private initiatives underway in the urban core, and a walking tour of Mary Brickell Village, a new 200,000 square foot lifestyle center in the heart of the financial district. Enjoy lunch on the Miami bayfront with a dynamic panel discussion among the top local developers, architects, and market experts regarding the future of downtown.

If I had to choose one I'd pick this one.

125 bucks to tour Vizcaya?? Are they letting people take a chair or lamp as a souvenir?

It's $10 for Dade County residents to see the place and you can stay as long as you want.

Some of those other options sound interesting, though.

Good news! I'm now giving a tour of Brickell for only $99!! Lunch is included (hope you're not allergic to McDonald's food). Also included in the "deal" is a limited supply photo of me with my signature! Call me if any of you suckers...er...I mean people, are interested.

Sooo....are you complaining?
If ULI people want to spend $125 for a Viscaya tour (40 people minimum), then more power to them.
As a ULI member, I'm sure that you the tour is a little bit different than the $10 tour. By the way, if you are Viscayan, it is only $6 and you can bring unlimited guests.

Uh, actually, no I'm not complaining. I could care less, in fact.

If someone wants to spend 125 bucks to tour a facility that is just as open to to the general public for a fraction of that price, more power to 'em.

Just saying that many of the other tours seem to offer more bang for the buck, y'know? If the Vizcaya tour is "a little bit different" the description offered doesn't say anything in that regard.

Maybe Alan Keyes offers his expertise on neo-Renaissance Italianate architecture, I dunno...
