The iconic Armani/Casa and Paramount Miami Worldcenter topped off this August. Miami’s Riverside could gain two new 50-60 story towers. Alton Road is set to gain a taller, 44-story condo building, but will it wall-in West Avenue? Read on for details on these and more condo pre-construction updates below:

Closings Underway

One Paraiso Edgewater

One Paraiso - Edgewater, Miami FL

After nailing its completion milestone last month, One Paraiso started with closings in August. The 276-luxury-condo tower is the third to begin closings in the Paraiso complex. Once settled in, residents will have access to its Michael Schwartz-helmed eatery, three pools, outdoor patio and marina, beach club, two-story gym and spa with juice bar, among other amenities.

Prices range between $600 per sq. ft. and $700 per sq. ft., with a choice of one- to three-bedroom units and penthouses

Complete

The Harbour North Miami Beach

The Harbour - North Miami Beach

The nearly complete Harbour features 330 luxury condos spread across two 25-story towers. The waterfront twin-towers aim to begin closings later this year. High-end amenities include an indoor-outdoor lobby with pool and Bay views, private marina with boat slips, full-service private beach club, private aqua club with variety of water sports, aromatherapy trail, outdoor Vita course, indoor-outdoor spa, dog park, waterfront restaurant and more.

Prices for remaining units range from $552,000 to $1.2 million, with a choice of 1,032 sq. ft. to 2,442 sq. ft. residences

Top Off

Residences by Armani/Casa Sunny Isles Beach

Residences by Armani/Casa - Sunny Isles Beach

The eagerly awaited Armani/Casa has topped off at a final height of 649 feet. This 56-story ultra-luxury tower is moving full steam ahead for a 2019 opening. Delivering 308 high-end residences, amenities at this iconic tower include a museum-quality art collection, theater, Armani Privé lounge, double story indoor-outdoor spa, children’s playroom, ocean-view restaurant and bar, pool with food and beverage service and much more.

Prices range between $2 million to $17 million, with a choice of two- to four-bedroom residences

Paramount Miami Worldcenter Downtown

Paramount Miami Worldcenter - Downtown

The 60-story signature tower at the Miami Worldcenter topped off this August. The construction milestone was celebrated with a salute to the workers and streaming of flags from over 50 countries (representing their diverse buyer repertoire). Part of a mega mixed-use development, the high-end condo tower comes with its own soccer field, a rooftop skyport to land flying cars, dog park, yoga studio, racquetball court, basketball half-court, food market, jam room with recording studio and sky-high observation deck.

Prices range from $3.5 million to $9.5 million, with a choice of four- to five-bedroom penthouses and duplexes

Gone vertical

The Wave on Bayshore Fort Lauderdale Beach

The Wave on Bayshore - Fort Lauderdale

Beginning its vertical climb this August, developer Oak Tree Management is aiming for a year-end top off. This boutique condo project should be ready to move in next year. While floors 2-9 will have two units with 180-degree exposures each, floors 10-11 will feature only single units with 360-degree views. Residents can look forward to a heated pool, sundeck, picnic area, private club room and fenced dog park in this 11-story, 18-condo boutique building.

Prices range from $895,000 to $2.6 million, with a choice of two- to three-bedroom residences

Approved

44-story condo tower – South Beach

44-story condo tower - South Beach

Previously, the South Shore Hospital Site was to gain a multi-building low-rise development, but developer Crescent Heights scrapped plans for a new deal. After intense negotiations, the Miami Beach City Commission’s Finance Committee agreed on letting a single, taller, narrower structure come up instead. The vacant site at 500 Alton Road will now house a 44-story tower and 3.2 acres of a city-owned park. The narrower structure is designed to avoid walling-off West Avenue and optimize adjacent views.

Planned

Two 50 to 60 story condo towers – Miami River

Miami River - Miami, FL

Voting will take place this November to replace the Riverside Center administrative building with four new towers. If residents approve, the plot will gain two new 50-60 story condo towers, a 30-story rental tower and a replacement administrative building. One of the condo towers would be luxury and the other mid-range.

Other Updates

YotelPad Downtown

YotelPad - Downtown, Miami FL

Plans for the first Yotel-branded residential project on the East Coast have been submitted to FAA for approval. Developers Aqarat and Aria Development Group seek permission for a 30-story tower rising 341-351 feet above ground. Once approved, the 208-condo, 250-key YotelPad will come with a fully loaded sky lounge with game zone, a coffee bar, co-working space, pool deck, pet spa, bike storage and more. Unit owners will also have the choice to participate in the condo-hotel’s short-term rental program or rent out to the likes of Airbnb without restrictions.

Prices begin at $250,000, with a choice of 425 sq. ft. studios to 700 sq. ft. two-bedroom residences

Elysee Miami Edgewater

Elysee - Edgewater

Just two months after beginning vertical ascent, Two Roads Development nabbed a $138 million loan. This makes it the largest condo construction loan of the year, so far. Aiming for a 2020 opening, the 57-story glassy tower comes with 100 half-floor condos, a 7th floor amenity deck with pool, bar, yoga studio and children’s playground. There will also be a 30th floor Owners Sky Lounge equipped with a private theater/library, game room, wine room, bar and lounge area.

Prices range between $1.5 million and upward of $10 million, with a choice of three- to five-bedroom residences

Real Estate News Miami Building Boom 2021: These are the 12 New Condo Development Projects Planned to Date
It’s a trend we’ve been talking about since the last quarter of 2020 - waves of buyers are contributing to one of the biggest real estate booms in Miami history. As individuals and businesses escape high tax states like New York and California, and have the freedom to work from any location, luxury condo developers in Miami are announcing new project after new project.   Miami condo developers have announced over a dozen new and relaunched condo projects since the beginning of 2021. In an attempt to appeal to a wide range of new residents, each new project aims to be taller, more luxurious, and offer the most exciting set of amenities imaginable, and could bring more than 10,000 residential units to Miami over the next few years. With the real estate market in Miami in one of its most lucrative cycles yet, here’s a look at the latest condo projects proposed in Miami since January 2021 (till the time of this post): New Miami Condo Development Projects 2021 E11even Hotel and...

Neighborhood Comparisons Surfside vs Sunny Isles Beach: Which Miami Neighborhood is Better?
If you love coastal living with walkable access to Atlantic Ocean beaches, and you want to move to a beachfront address while bypassing the hustle and bustle of South Beach, there are two beachside communities to consider when looking to make your move: Sunny Isles Beach and Surfside.  While these communities are practically next-door neighbors (with ritzy Bal Harbour nestled between them) and they share many amenities, including direct beach access to the Atlantic. Plus, they both are in prime locations that provide quick and easy access to airports, shopping, arts and culture, and outdoor living, living there could not be more different from one another.   As insiders who’ve lived in these popular Miami neighborhoods, we’ve broken down the similarities and differences between these two beautiful seaside communities in case you are looking to move to Miami.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
