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

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

Aug 25, 2017 August 25, 2017

We’re back with the latest in Miami’s pre-construction condo market. This July, Genting finally showed some movement by filing for two permits for the old Miami Herald site. Tibor Hollo and P&O Global Technologies came back with revamped plans for their proposed condo towers. L’Atelier managed to nab its construction loan, while the Verzasca Group backed out of building a condo tower. Have a look below for these and more developments on the pre-construction condo front in Miami:

New Sales Gallery

Cassa Brickell - Brickell

Sitting on a quiet corner in Brickell, the 10-story, 81-unit development has gained a brand-new, on-site sales gallery. TSG Paragon Development brings about this unique condo project to 201 SW 17th Road. With only a handful of state-of-the-art residences, each finished unit boasts of spacious balconies, Italian kitchens, designer fittings and walk-in closets. Residents also get access to a personal fitness advisor, Ana M. Sanchez, events on the rooftop sundeck exclusively planned by EventsbyArianna, and nature personally curated by La Petite Fleur. Although boutique, the project finds its roots in the ideology of living big.
 
Prices range from $415,000 to $800,000, with a choice of one to three bedroom units, penthouses and townhomes.

Proposals

Edge on BrickellBrickell

Tibor Hollo’s Edge on Brickell has submitted revised plans for approval. The number of condos has been reduced from 130 to 70 to make room for the addition of its hotel component. There’s also been a reduction in open spaces as well as parking spots. However, the number of stories has increased to 58 from 55 for the mixed use development to accommodate its 198 hotel rooms.

P&O Global Technologies’ Proposed Condo Tower - North Bay Village

Rejected by residents in March for being too overwhelming for the village, Malaysia-based P&O Global Technologies is back with a new and improved proposal for its condo development. The developer has downsized plans and brought down its North Bay Village tower height from 290 to 240 feet. The number of condos has also been reduced from 77 to 54. With review pending this September, the developer is hoping to break ground in 2018.

Resorts World MiamiDowntown Miami

There is finally some hustle on the oceanfront Genting project. Developers filed for a permit to remove 26 trees from the former Miami Herald site. Genting also went ahead to file court documents and is again going to request administrative approval for a casino from Florida’s Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering.

Resorts World Miami

OKO Group’s 47-story condo – Brickell

Doronin’s OKO Group has submitted landscape plans by Enea Garden Design for its Brickell parcel at 175 SE 25th Road. Last year, the Russian billionaire’s group had announced plans of building a 47-story luxury condo building on the parcel. The group also mentioned roping in Burj Khalifa’s Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture firm to bring the 613 foot tower to fruition.

Planned Projects

Two-phase development at 400 Biscayne – Downtown Miami

PMG has planned a two-phase development at the former site of the First United Methodist Church in Downtown. The first phase of the project has developers rolling out a 45-50 story rental tower with more than 500 apartments. Phase 2 should see a condo tower come up; however, PMG wishes to wait for a firmer market before finalizing any plans. Stantec is the architect of choice for the upcoming project.

Issues & Lawsuits

Planned condos replaced by apartments – Edgewater

Seems like Miami’s humdrum condo market is finally getting to developers. First, we saw the Related Group cancel plans for Auberge Miami. And now, the Verzasca Group has changed its mind by swapping out its condo tower for a 393-unit rental development at 2000 Biscayne in Edgewater.

Real Estate News The average Miami Preconstruction Condo buyer lost 14% in resales through Q3 2019
This year, CondoBlackBook.com again teamed up with HB Roswell Realty to analyze the latest new construction resale data across Miami. We tracked new condo units built between 2017 and 2019 in Miami’s urban core and beach areas that have since been sold by the original owner in the first three quarters of 2019. What we found builds upon last year’s report and is surprising—most sellers lost money. On average, Miami new construction condo resales lost around 13.9% when factoring in costs (1.7% at purchase and 6.8% at sale).*  This follows our analysis conducted over the same period last year in which we found sellers lost 11% on average. Our team analyzed 116 new construction resales in Greater Downtown Miami, Coconut Grove, Miami Beaches and the surrounding islands (except Fisher Island and Key Biscayne) that closed in 2019 and found that 40 broke even or made a profit, while 76 resales lost money—nearly 65% of the owners in our study (compared to a similar figure of 63% in last...
