Other Updates

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.

One River Point – Miami River

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.

Terminal Island is a small, triangular island off the MacArthur Causeway that up until now has not been developed for residential use. The island has been used primarily to house the fleet maintenance of vehicles such as police cars, and sanitation buildings for the City of Miami Beach, as well as a gas station for city vehicles, an electric plant, and the Fisher Island ferry terminal.
