Other Updates



Aston Martin Residences – Downtown

Unveiling a special payment plan developed in association with mortgage broker Regal Group International to smooth the approval process, developer G&G Business Developments announced a
unique, smart way of financing an Aston Martin Residence. The program allows clients to finance their luxury condo from day one, offering greater freedom to manage their portfolios.

The plan allows the buyer to make equal, fixed monthly installments for the term of the loan, post the initial payment. Additionally, there is no prepayment penalty for the loan term, and clients can cancel or change their lender without any penalties as well. However, additional financing costs and commitment fees are not part of the plan and still remain the buyer’s responsibility.

This 66-story ultra-luxury condo tower rises along Downtown’s waterfront, featuring a unique wind-sail design. Home to 391 luxury residences, its common areas are set to feature signature Aston Martin touches. Additionally, residents will have access to the only deep-water superyacht marina in Downtown, an infinity pool, spa, a sky lounge, two cinemas, an art gallery, barber station, kids’ room, optional butler service, and more.

Two Roads Development will be
shifting its sales center from Biscayne Beach (another condo building developed by them in Edgewater) to Elysee, once it is complete. The 5,481 sq. ft. unit sits on the first floor of Biscayne Beach and was initially meant to be leased or sold out to a restaurant. However, with the pandemic, the unit, with 2360 sq. ft. of outdoor space and 15 parking spots has hit the market for $6 million and can be used as an office, restaurant or retail space.

Elysee is expected to get its TCO by the end of September. The 100-condo, 57-story, waterfront tower comes designed by Aquitectonica and features interiors by Jean-Louise Denoit.

Mast Capital’s Alton Bay Condo Tower – Mid-Beach, FL


Planned to be built next to the Julia Tuttle Causeway, this proposed 12-story condo tower ran into troubled waters this August.

Downsized from its initial plan of a 250-feet tall, 160-unit tower to the newly presented 140-feet tall, 128-unit tower, the development is looking for rezoning in an area that allows a maximum 85-feet tall, 75-unit condo tower.

Designed by Arquitectonica, the property will include a 3,000 sq. ft. restaurant, fitness equipment, a dog park, and playground as part of its publicly accessible grounds.
