As the luxury and ultra-luxury market explodes to put Miami into the top 10 luxury real estate property destinations in the world, developers are bringing out the big guns to ensure they impress the family-oriented as well as the most extravagant buyers.

To help you get caught up on the hottest upcoming condo amenities in Miami, HB Roswell Realty and CondoBlackBook.com have compiled the seven most noteworthy amenities coming out in the newest wave of pre-construction properties.

Finally, the Helicopter Parking I’ve Been Looking For!
Yep, believe it or not, the developer of 1000 Museum, another starchitect Zaha Hadid masterpiece, finally came to his senses and gave all us helicopter owners a place to park, albeit just for drop-off and pick-up. To top it off, underneath the helipad is an indoor pool, which is also not so common in Miami condos.

A Garage in the Sky / An Elevator … for your car
If you haven’t heard of Porsche Design Tower yet, you might have your head in the sand. Other than being known as a spectacularly designed project, Porsche Design Tower’s Signature amenity is its “sky garage.” So, let’s say you live in Porsche Design Tower and come home from a long day of making your next few million dollars. You don’t want to fuss with valet or parking in a dirty garage with no A/C alongside other strangers. From that need was born the “sky garage,” where you drive into an elevator that takes you directly to your own private garage next to your unit. You hop out of your car on your 48th floor unit, walk a few steps and straight into your gorgeous Porsche Design Tower sky residence. Construction on the project is anticipated to begin later in the year. Other amenities to be featured in Porsche Design Tower include private enclosed wine lockers for each unit and an oceanfront spa.

Running in Circles
1010 Brickell brings us a fantastic 1/8 mile jogging deck on its amenities level. No more worrying about getting run over by cars on Brickell Ave and get your late-night jog in the safety of your own condo building. An outdoor jogging track with 360 degrees of track with soft cushion flooring gives you plenty of space for staying fit. That's not the only amenity you will find at 1010 Brickell; however. In a bid to appeal to families, the 47-tower unit boasts a parent/child wristband pairing system that allows parents to enjoy their time at the tower's Club without worrying over the security of their kiddos. Meanwhile, a separate kids' gym gives tykes a place of their own. A kids game room, wet area with water features, and arcade games are certain to be a big hit with the younger set.

Virtual Golf Simulator
If you are finding it difficult to get in time to practice your swing, the virtual golf simulator to be installed at on the 13th floor at 1010 Brickell will give you the opportunity to get in some practice time without ever leaving home.

Swimming without the Sun
Indoor swimming pools are the new trend to give people the convenience of a heated swim rain or shine and a better way to keep your youthful skin away from the intense Miami sun. 1000 Museum and 1010 Brickell are two that have jumped on the bandwagon. A Nana Wall provides the option for exposure to the outdoors, if you so desire.

On Thin Ice
The Residences at the Miami Beach EDITION will bring Miami its own beach version of  Central Park fun to Miami by making an indoor ice skating rink an available amenity to be shared by the EDITION residences and hotel.

Bowling at Home
The Residences at the Miami Beach EDITION and 1010 Brickell are both offering bowling alleys for their residents and guests. Sorry, Splitsville and Lucky Strike, your days may be numbered for a select few luxury condo owners.

These Two New Miami Towers Could Become Edgewater’s Latest Developments
Real Estate News These Two New Miami Towers Could Become Edgewater’s Latest Developments
Edgewater is expanding. Again! With two new residential towers planned - one condo and one multifamily - the Miami waterfront neighborhood is once again proving it’s continuing to be Miami’s most desirable neighborhood. Both projects are currently awaiting a vote from the City of Miami’s Urban Development Review Board. Developers have been attracted to Edgewater for residential projects, given its family-friendly vibe. The Bayfront neighborhood further benefits from close proximity to the shops and restaurants of Midtown, high-end shopping at the Design District, the eclectic art scene of Wynwood, and general vivacity of Downtown. It is also minutes from a Metromover station that takes people through to Downtown and Brickell.
