The Miami Lakes business center provides a prestigious address that gives access to all parts of Miami and which is also a gateway location to international commercial opportunities. Situated amid palm trees and lawns in Miami Lakes West Park, this 4th floor business center benefits from being at the heart of a town that straddles the Palmetto Expressway, is just 10 miles from Miami International Airport and 16 miles north of downtown Miami. Strong logistics infrastructure, including Opa-Locka Airport, has persuaded more than 1,100 companies to make the town their home. Other attractions include no local or state personal income tax and a skilled multilingual, multicultural workforce. Companies in the aviation, life sciences, financial/professional services, hi-tech, international trade, and logistics and distribution sectors thrive. Miami is an important financial hub, has a clutch of international company headquarters and its ports make it a gateway to South America and the Caribbean.
