Builder's Story

Cedar is the residential development brand that JAXI CMD, L.L.C. has used throughout they ears for the marketing and selling of their residential projects. For the past 12 years the Cedar brand has developed over 350 homes in the South Florida market including: Cedar West Homes phases I, II, III, and IV, 186 detached single family homes and zero lot cluster homes; Cedar Woods Homes, 165 residential condo townhouses gated community with clubhouse; Cedar West Estates Homes phase I and II, 16 detached estate single family homes.

Cedar’s most recent successful project is Cedar Lakes at Fort Myers - completing construction of Bella Casa Luxury Condominium, a previously existing community with 4 completed buildings and 6 buildings for a total 200 units completed on October of 2014.

The successful on-time completion of the Cedar developments has been handled by JAXI Builders, Inc., a company founded in 1986 by Abel Ramirez. JAXI Builders, Inc. has remained under the same name and ownership for 29 years, a testament to their continued strength and growth in their community. JAXI Builders, Inc. was originally established providing general contracting services to individuals electing to use their custom building services and clients with commercial interior renovation needs. Throughout the years with strong and continuously expanding clientele they have branched out to become the large full scale general contracting firm providing a broad scope of customizable construction services, encompassing Multi-Family, Mid-Rise, Residential, Rehab and Ground-Up, Commercial, Industrial, Retail, Healthcare, and Public Sector industries.

JAXI Builders, Inc.’s most recently completed 145 unit for Miami Dade County covers a sprawling twenty six acres and completed a 30 unit - four story building project located in Miami Beach for the Miami Beach Housing Authority. Additional completed projects include: Coronado a 345 condominium in the City of Doral and Superior Gardens, an 80 unit townhome project in Miami. Along with their contributions to residential construction, JAXI has an exemplary record in commercial construction and is responsible for a over one million square feet of commercial interior renovation throughout South Florida.

The expansion of JAXI’s service base allowed them a unique growth opportunity into the housing market. Cedar has joined forces with the highly regarded Eduardo Caballero, a well established builder and architect himself who has developed multiple properties units in his native country of Colombia. Still under the trade name of Cedar and fortified with the backing of investors Abel Ramirez and Eduardo Caballero have set out to purchase, rezone and develop hundreds of units.

The Cedar commitment to homeowners is to build a quality product at an affordable price. In order to maintain this commitment, Cedar has brought in JAXI Builders to build every project, thus ensuring that while JAXI concentrates on what it knows best –construction - with its motto “Quality… from Foundation to Finish” while CEDAR, the developer, can concentrate on what it knows best – Developing new homes, which they have done since 2001.

Cedar was able to successfully avoid the problems which plagued other developers as a result of the real estate market fallout and today Cedar is concentrating on it’s core values, developing solid real estate products at unequalled prices.

Additional properties currently under development and for sale include:

  • Cedar Parc Alliance – currently in the final stage of planning and development will include 800 residential condominium units with 150,000 sq. ft. of commercial space in a pedestrian friendly mixed used design.
