The first piece of one of the largest real estate projects in the U.S. is ready and open for tenants.

Caoba, a 43-story apartment tower located at 698 NE First Ave., marks the initial phase of completion of Miami Worldcenter, the 27-acre mixed-use development that sprawls across 10 city blocks in downtown Miami.
