grand opening of its sales gallery for the 121-condo project.

With sales now in process, the 20-story tower is designed by Raymond Fort of Arquitectonica with interiors by Meyer Davis Studio. The luxury Mr. C brand will also handle food and beverage operations at the gourmet market and café part of the condo project.

Slated for an early 2021 completion, this European-inspired boutique project
broke ground in February. Designed to bring a taste of the Côte d’Azur to Miami Beach, the 12-story boutique development sits on a 1.1-acre site said to be one of the last vacant bayfront sites in North Beach.

Home to only 39 luxury residences, Arquitectonica designed the nautical-themed building and interiors are by famed Piero Lissoni. Each of its units are positioned to capture direct water views. Highlight amenities include a rooftop terrace with pool and Jacuzzi, yoga space, and a 12-slip private marina, among others. 

Prices range from $1.1 million to over $8 million, with a choice of 918 sq. ft. condos to more than 5,000 sq. ft. residences

2000 Ocean - Hallandale Beach


After starting its vertical ascent last June, developer KAR Properties has announced that the Hallandale Beach beachfront condo is
50% complete with hurricane glass installed up to the eighth floor. Aiming for a mid-2021 completion, the waterfront tower is slated to rise 40 stories with 64 luxury residences.

Designed by Kobi Karp and Enrique Norten of Ten Arquitectos, with furnishings by Italian design brand Minotti, the tower will be the closest to the ocean than any of its neighboring buildings upon completion. Standout amenities include rotating exhibitions of modern and contemporary art curated by New York’s art historian Megan Kincaid, two swimming pools, a spa with Hammam room, yoga room, and oceanfront library.

Prices range from $2.6 million to $12 million, with a choice of 58 half-floor condo residences and five full-floor penthouses

Aston Martin Residences


With its foundation poured last June, construction is moving full steam ahead as the
first glass was installed on the branded tower this February. With lots more glass coming, the ultra-luxury tower is set to rise 66 stories or 816 feet above ground, aiming to be one of the tallest residential developments in South Florida and sitting right on the Miami River and Biscayne Bay.

The ultra-luxury tower stands out for its wind-sail design, signature Aston Martin touches throughout its common areas, and for housing the only deep-water superyacht marina in Downtown. With completion scheduled for 2022, other amenities at this riverfront tower include a sky lounge, infinity pool, art gallery, spa, two cinemas, a barber station, kids’ room, optional butler service, and more.

Prices start at $750,000 for condo units, while penthouses are available for $50 million 

Other Updates

Le Jardin Residences – Bay Harbor Islands

Le Jardin - Bay Harbor Islands


After filing for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy just before completion last July, developer Verzasca Group was able to
avoid foreclosure by getting its bankruptcy plan approved by the court. By reorganizing, developers will now be able to move forward with selling the remaining 12 units in this boutique condo project. The bankruptcy was filed in connection to a still-pending lawsuit alleging that the group owed money on an EB-5 loan.

The seven-story, 30-unit development has already received its temporary certificate of occupancy (TCO). Amenities include a rooftop pool with panoramic views, Jacuzzis, tropically landscaped garden, community rooftop terrace with barbecue area, electric vehicle charging station, and more.

Legacy Hotel and ResidencesDowntown Miami

Developer Royal Palm Companies
announced more details on its concrete timeline for its Miami Worldcenter condo-hotel. The 278-unit, 255-key project is expected to break ground by late summer, with completion scheduled for Fall of 2023.

Designed by Kobi Karp, the 50-story tower is set to introduce the concept of microLUXE living to Miami’s urban core. Residents can look forward to small living with a more luxurious twist. Boasting of minimal rental restrictions, owners will be able to rent out their units to home-sharing websites such as Airbnb, Booking.com, and TripAdvisor as daily rentals, or participate in the hotel’s rental program. Amenities at this one-of-a-kind project include a 45th floor “Singapore style” sky pool hanging off its edge, a 1-acre, ninth-floor pool deck, and America’s largest rooftop glass atrium with seven stories housing indoor palm trees, a restaurant, lounge, and bar. The mixed-use development will also feature space for hosting special events along with a members-only international business lounge, and a 50,000 sq. ft. wellness facility with “herbal baristas.”

Prices expected to range between $300,000 and $500,000, with a choice of studio to two-bedroom residences

Park on FifthSouth Beach

Park on Fifth - South Beach


Following up on our 
December report stating that developers Terra Group and Crescent Heights and city officials were having a tough time seeing eye-to-eye on what to include when calculating the floor-to-area ratio for the development, a truce has been reached. Miami Beach Commissioners have approved a settlement agreement on the exclusions, while also making sure no other buildings can seek the same interpretation. Read more on what it cost the developers to have the ruling in their favor here.

The 44-story luxury condo-apartment tower can now move ahead with constructing its 337 residential units, in addition to a 15,000 sq. ft. retail pavilion, a 7,880 sq. ft. restaurant, 578-space parking garage, and a long-awaited three-acre public park with elevated pathways.

It’s a trend we’ve been talking about since the last quarter of 2020 - waves of buyers are contributing to one of the biggest real estate booms in Miami history. As individuals and businesses escape high tax states like New York and California, and have the freedom to work from any location, luxury condo developers in Miami are announcing new project after new project.   Miami condo developers have announced over a dozen new and relaunched condo projects since the beginning of 2021.

If you love coastal living with walkable access to Atlantic Ocean beaches, and you want to move to a beachfront address while bypassing the hustle and bustle of South Beach, there are two beachside communities to consider when looking to make your move: Sunny Isles Beach and Surfside.  While these communities are practically next-door neighbors (with ritzy Bal Harbour nestled between them) and they share many amenities, including direct beach access to the Atlantic.

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...
