Other Updates


One Thousand MuseumDowntown

One Thousand Museum – Downtown

Adding to its kitty of five-star amenities, developers are planning on offering residents a brand-new beach club called Museum Beach. The facility is expected to be located in the South of Fifth area. This 709-feet tower is the only high-rise designed by the late Zaha Hadid in Miami, and is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2019. Other amenities at this ultra-luxury condo tower include an 8th floor pool deck and fitness center, a 9th floor spa and relaxation sky lounge, plus a 5,600 sq. ft. ground-level restaurant, along with a host of other special features.

Prices range from $5.5 million to over $20 million, with a choice of half-floor units, two-story duplexes and full-floor penthouses


UnaBrickell

Una – Brickell

Developer OKO Group filed for a construction permit for its one-acre, waterfront development in Brickell this December. The 613-foot tower is set to feature 138 luxury condos sprinkled across 47 stories. Amenities at this ultra-luxury development include a third floor dedicated to three pools, an outdoor lounge, cabanas and grilling area, a waterfront spa and fitness center, private marina, cinema and more.

One River Point – Miami River

An application has been filed, yet again, with the Federal Aviation Administration by developers of One River Point. This time, the FAA-application has been submitted for the construction of an 817-foot tower. Previously, the condo project had already received FAA approval to build a 928 feet tall tower. However, the approval was set to expire by September 2018, and it did, since the twin-story tower missed starting construction by said date. The 60-story tower is planned to include a dramatic floating Sky Bridge connecting both towers, a signature waterfront restaurant, the largest riverfront full-service pool, B&B Italia-furnished cabanas, a sculpture garden, pet spa, curated exhibition spaces and much more.

Occupying the last waterfront parcel on Fisher Island, the ultra-luxury development is accessible only by private yacht, the island’s auto-ferry or helicopter. The 10-story, 50-unit boutique building shares a “Central Park” with sister development Del Sol, which includes outdoor tea gardens, a croquet lawn, bocce ball court, yoga lawn. Other highlights include a beauty salon, multiple pools, cabanas, pool bar, spa, fitness center, massage suites and more.

Prices range from $6.5 million to $40 million, with a choice of three- to seven-bedroom residences and penthouses

Other amenities include an oceanfront and sunset pool with butler service, a Spa Pavilion with Hammam and ice room, oceanside café by Wright Fit, sculpture garden with commissioned artwork by David Harber, curated gardens by Sasaki and an oceanfront library.

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...
