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

New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Opinions and Advice New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Finding and moving to a new home can be a strenuous experience, even when you like the change you’re making. This is more so when you have an emotional condition or disability and part of your treatment involves having an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). In this case, finding a new home comes with a whole new set of challenges only you and your furry friend can know. And no one needs the added fear and stress of possibly being denied housing or being discriminated against for owning an ESA. Thankfully, a new Florida law on emotional support animals that went into effect July 1, 2020, explicitly states what you and your current/prospective landlord or HOA can and cannot do regarding Emotional Service Animals. The law applies to all condos, apartments, and rental homes. Last updated on March 27, 2024.
