Having played a pioneering role in the transformation of Miami’s bayfront skyline, Ugo Colombo is one of the city’s most established and influential developers, with a reputation in the field of construction and finance that is second to none.
Born in 1961 in Milan, Italy, he first came to the United States in 1983. His real estate career began while he was studying at the University of Miami.
After acquiring and selling the inventory in the Brickell Avenue building – the Imperial Villa Regina Condominium – his company, CMC group, focused on the design and construction of high–rise luxury condominium buildings on Brickell Avenue and in Miami Beach and Aventura.
After developing two landmarks of the Miami skyline (Bristol Tower and Santa Maria on Brickell Avenue, both of which helped redefine the condominium market in South Florida) he also played a significant role in the rejuvenation of Miami Beach’s South Beach community by redeveloping two of Ocean Drive’s most important Art Deco hotels: the Waldorf and Casa Grande.
With a portfolio that spans luxury residential and leisure, his most recent development successes include Epic Residences and Hotel, a 55–story luxury condominium and hotel on the Miami River in downtown Miami, and Grovenor House, a 166–unit luxury condominium project completed in 2006 in the heart of Miami’s Coconut Grove community.
