Aug 19, 2019 August 19, 2019

July has been a month of many beginnings in the world of Miami pre-construction condos. Villa Valencia made its debut with a ground breaking. YotelPad started its vertical ascent. And, the condo tower at Miami Worldcenter marked its completion after four years of being pre-construction. However, some of the most shocking news came in from the developers at Le Jardin, who went ahead and filed for bankruptcy without their project actually being insolvent.

Breaking Ground

Villa ValenciaCoral Gables

Villa Valencia - Coral Gable, Miami FL


After launching sales in January, the luxurious Villa Valencia
broke ground by the end of June. Featuring 39 estate-sized condos in a 13-story mid-rise, these Mediterranean-inspired residences will come ready-to-move-in.

Prices start at $1.65 million, with a choice of three- to six-bedroom residences and penthouses

Approved

555 River House - Miami River

555 River House - Miami River, Miami FL


Owing to its maritime-inspired design by Carlos Zapata, this mixed-use development impressed the Urban Design Review Board enough to
win approvals with a total of seven waivers. The condo-hotel’s design features two glass and steel buildings resembling cargo ships weighed down by stacks of containers. The three mid-rises will feature 39 condo units and 169 lodging units managed under the brand Sixty Hotels of New York. Hoping to break ground by January next year, residents will have access to the hotel’s amenities as well as the option to rent out their units.

Prices are expected to average at $1,150 per sq. ft., or range between $1 million and $1.5 million

Planned

Mishorim TowersDowntown

Mishorim Towers - Downtown, Miami FL


Planned to be constructed as a two-phase project, Mishorim Towers will feature 800 residential units along with 120 hotel rooms, 7,110 sq. ft. of commercial space and 264 parking spaces. Its shorter north tower will rise 55 stories and house only the residential component, while the 63-story south tower is where the 120-key hotel will be accommodated.

Other Updates

GlasshausCoconut Grove

Glasshaus - Coconut Grove, Miami FL


This exclusive “glass house” in the Grove has secured
$13.2 million in construction financing. The boutique, 5-story building is home to 23 luxury condo units with amenities such as a Zen garden, “living wall” garden in the lobby, rooftop pool and cabanas, underground parking, dedicated electric car charging stations and more. Developers are aiming for an early 2020 completion. 

Prices start at under $600,000, with a choice of one- to three-bedroom residences

DieselWynwood

Diesel - Wynwood, Miami FL


Demolition has begun to clear the site for the first-ever Diesel branded condos. The Diesel Living building is expected to feature 143 loft-style condos and 24,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail, along with multiple pools and a wellness center.

One Island ParkSouth Beach

One Island Park - South Beach, Miami FL


This proposed 400-foot tower on Terminal Island has run into troubled waters with the Coast Guard. The Related Group development has
received a warning from the Coast Guard that it could end up giving criminals a bird’s eye view of the sensitive mission carried out by their Miami Beach station. Developers are still pushing for this 34-story, 90-unit luxury tower to be built with provisions for the Coast Guard’s security concerns.

Issues/Lawsuits

Le JardinBay Harbor Islands

Le Jardin - Bay Harbor Islands, Miami FL


While this Verzasca Group project is nearly complete and a majority of its units presold, developers have
filed for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a rather bizarre move. The bankruptcy is said to be filed in connection to a lawsuit alleging that the group owes money on an EB-5 loan. What’s rather unusual is that the project is not actually insolvent, and has $27.5 million in assets against $7.1 million in liabilities. Read the full report here.

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...
