Miami’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: July 2022

Aug 12, 2022 August 12, 2022

Miami’s luxury condo market may have slowed down to catch its breath this summer, but developers seem to be moving full steam ahead with plans. Developer Location Ventures not only started closing on its freshly complete Villa Valencia luxury Coral Gables condos but also got approved to build an even larger, $350 million condo project at 1505 Ponce de Leon Blvd. Related’s District 225 broke ground and secured a new construction loan. Frank Gehry’s Equinox Hotel & Residences (the site of the historic Deauville), Brickell’s Cipriani Residences, and North Beach’s 72 Collins won key approvals.

This July, we also saw MAJOR rebranding to 888 Miami, as well as the previously rental Society Residences being renamed as The Elser Hotel & Residences (now condo-hotel). Koya Bay secured a construction loan to adhere to its 2023 completion deadline. And, the iconic Shops at Mary Brickell Village sold for $216 million with possible plans for a supertall.

Equinox Hotel & Residences – North Beach

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and architect Frank Gehry’s plans to replace the Deauville Resort with twin condo and hotel towers were approved by Miami Beach commissioners this July.

Designed by New York’s legendary starchitect Frank Gehry, Equinox will feature a 175-key six-star hotel and 150 luxury residences. The shorter of the towers will house the world-class hotel, while the taller will be the condo tower. There will be a park-like, landscaped area between the two towers. The new designs will pay homage to the original Deauville.

The transformative project will also come with a load of public benefits, including funding for arts education in the area, money for a community facility, initial funding for the establishment of a housing relief fund, public beach access, and more. The next round of voting will take place in November, with Miami Beach voters deciding whether developers can move forward with a height increase.
