Last November, popular Italian denim brand Diesel announced plans for its first-ever condo project in Miami, called Diesel Living. The luxury condo tower, being developed by the Bel Invest Group, will feature 143 loft-style condos and 24,000 sq. ft. of retail on the ground floor. This is not the first time a global brand name has chosen Miami for its debut in the residential real estate space. Over the past few years, we’ve seen the likes of Porsche Design Tower to Aston Martin Residences, Fendi Chateau Residences to Residences by Armani Casa, plus Missoni Baia condo and many others bring their signature touches to condo residences in Miami.

Looking back, with most of these high-end luxury brands, it has been the same story - five-star brand name comes up with ultra-luxurious condos. The target audience has been the same too - affluent elite. You can read more about the kind of
luxury-branded Miami and Miami Beach area condos produced by the fashion and car brand peers here.

However, Diesel’s Miami condo announcement has been quite different. Right from its choice of neighborhood to choice of architecture, the denim brand’s residential offering is looking to be a game-changer, attracting a different kind of audience.

First off, Diesel has chosen Wynwood for its condo playground. The artsy neighborhood is known for its fun, quirky vibe, which goes very well with the Italian brand’s young and dynamic image. Also, it is the first to offer
loft-style condos. The raw industrial appeal of this type of architecture, again, goes well with the image of its denim line as well as the neighborhood. Loft-style living does make the perfect fit for Wynwood’s iconic warehouses, industrial history, art and pedestrian-friendly lifestyle. So, from the word go Diesel Living condo sets the stage for reeling in the kind of clientele its denim brand is known to attract – young, energetic, trendsetting, artistically-inclined individuals.

The loft-style building will come designed by Zyschovich Architects and feature products and designs by Diesel Living. With sales expected to launch in the first quarter of 2019, what will be interesting to note is the price point at which these condos are offered and how it correlates to their target audience.

Lifestyle Urban Food Halls a Big Craze in Miami, and We Bet You Haven't Been to All of Them
Miami is officially on board the latest urban food hall train, with new urban food halls sprouting up everywhere. These sites are inspired in European marketplaces and are known for hosting a wide variety of food vendors, restaurant kiosks, and marketplaces in a single location, often spanning thousands of square feet. Several new urban food halls have cropped up across Miami in the last couple of years, providing accessible and varied eateries ranging from top-tier restaurants to casual street food. Several areas are now blessed with urban food halls, including the novel Brickell City Center, the luxe Design District, and the trendy art-lined streets of Wynwood.

Miami Real Estate Market Forecast 2020 & State of the Market in 2019
Real Estate News Miami Real Estate Market Forecast 2020 & State of the Market in 2019
The Miami real estate market has been moving in interesting ways over the past few years. Some believe the market is bottoming out after a few years of softness, others think that we are set for another condo bust. Let’s take a look at the Miami market landscape and see where things may go from here. Let’s start with a brief history... The market crashed in 2008 along with the rest of the nation, and then from 2010-2015 the Miami market had a huge run-up in prices to the point that pretty much everyone who invested around 2010 made very significant profits. After the dollar strengthened in 2014, the very hot real estate market here in Miami started softening, as the Europeans and Latin American countries lost much of their purchasing power in the exchange rates (on the other hand, those who already had their money here made a killing). Since 2015-2016, the condo prices have gone sideways and down as inventory has increased, creating some pain for sellers and a great opportunity...
Top Miami Beach Neighborhoods Ranked for Public Transportation
Lifestyle Top Miami Beach Neighborhoods Ranked for Public Transportation
The reality is that for the typical visitor or resident of Miami Beach, they come to walk, bike, skateboard, and scooter around town, but it’s still important to know you public transit options. Getting around any city becomes that much easier when you have multiple public transportation options at your disposal. Miami, for one, has an intricate public transportation system that includes options like the Metrobus, Metrorail, Metromover, Tri-rail and the Trolley. In this blog, we’ve ranked the top Miami Beach neighborhoods on the basis of their ease of access to public transit systems, making it easier for tourists and locals to know how to cruise this coastal city. The reason you won’t see a super high score for any of these neighborhoods is because the only public transportation options are street-based (trolley and bus) without dedicated or preferred lanes as opposed to any public-transit-only lanes or dedicated systems like rail. Plus, the only public transit in and out of the...
