Miami’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: February 2017

Mar 31, 2017 March 31, 2017

Of late numbers might have you thinking that things are slowing down in Miami’s condo market, but there’s still a lot of action taking place on the ground. For the month of February, we had a grand opening, two sales launches and some approvals to keep the market abuzz.

Here’s looking at the top developments this February in Miami’s new and pre-construction condo market:

Miami Condo Sales Launches & Sales Office Openings

Monad TerraceSouth Beach

Michael Stern’s JDS officially launched sales for their statement creation in South Beach, the Monad Terrace. The reflective waterfront building is registered for sales in New York. Ground-breaking is expected to take place soon, since the New-York-based developer is targeting 2019 for delivery.

This 59-unit, luxury condo building is Pritzker Prize-winning Jean Nouvel’s first in Florida. The French architect has not only designed the building, but will also be designing each unit. Amenities include a sun deck with bayfront pool, climbing gardens for shade, dock access and a residents’ lounge among others.

Prices start at $2 million with a choice of 2-5 bedrooms

The Ritz-Carlton ResidencesSunny Isles Beach

The Ritz-Carlton Residences unveiled their brand-new $1 million+ sales gallery at 15800 Collins Avenue. Across the street from the oceanfront luxury condo tower, it replaces their previous waterfront site. Vertical construction is already underway as the 212-unit tower broke ground last summer.
 
Presales stood at 64% as of February 2017, including deals on three out of five penthouses, with the fourth in negotiations. The average sales price hovers at $1500/sq. ft., with a completion date of mid-2019.
 
The timeless interiors of the 52-story tower come designed by Florentine architect Michele Bönan in a sophisticatedly soothing neutral palette. Besides sweeping views of the Atlantic, the luxury condo building will be home to a 33rd floor private club inclusive of a lounge, two bars, guest suites, business center and dining area, in addition to a kids club, on-site restaurant, pool deck, private beach amenities and more.

Prices range from $1.9 million to $30 million (for penthouses) with a choice of 2-5 bedrooms

Miami Condo City Approvals

18Brickell

The City of Miami Board gave its approval to the mixed-use tower proposed to replace Brickell’s Burger King-anchored strip mall. The 78-story, 960-foot supertall will feature 392 condos, 66,618 sq. ft. of retail occupying four floors, 464 parking spaces and bicycle parking. Developed by the Karam Group, the LEED Silver building is being designed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates.

Issues & Lawsuits for Planned Miami Condos

Capriccio – Bay Harbour Islands
Rejected over multiple design issues

The Bay Harbour Planning and Zoning Board rejected the approval of the proposed Capriccio’s by a 4-1 vote. After review, the board cited multiple issues with the condo building. Elements in need of revision include the enormous size of the parking lot and its proximity to the street, landscaping and the need to walk to the street for trash disposal. Once fixed, the 30-story condo building will be welcome to seek approval.
 
Apeiron Miami – North Miami
Feud over dated agreement violations

Residents continue their battle with Apeiron developers over development on the common grounds at the Jockey Club condo complex. The condo associations of Jockey Club I and II claim that Apeiron is trampling over a pair of binding agreements from 1977 and 1995 that block any further development from taking place at the club. The case is set for trial for a period of three weeks starting February 27.
 
If built, the Apeiron will be an ultra-modern addition to the complex, featuring two 40-story towers, with 90 hotel rooms and 240 condo units (also served by the hotel portion), a five-acre indoor/outdoor health and wellness complex, new clay tennis courts, outdoor pools and a reconstructed marina with 38 deep-water yacht slips. So far, Jockey Club III residents seem to be onboard with team Apeiron’s Horst Schulze, Michael Bedner and Muayad Abbas.

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...
