Taking inspiration from the Fairchild botanical gardens, the 5-story building features lush gardens and a rainforest.

Prices for remaining units start at $2.2 million, with a choice of three- to four-bedroom residences

Lawsuits


Parque TowersSunny Isles Beach


Parque Towers - Sunny Isles BeachParque Towers - Sunny Isles Beach



Four buyers have sued developer J. Milton & Associates to get back their deposits as construction hits delays. The unfinished project features 320 condo units spread across two towers. Amenities include resort-style pools, an exclusive kids’ club, al fresco dining, private beach club, an outdoor event space, private screening room, limo services and much more.

Representatives of the developer say that the delays are owing to “unforeseen, geological issues”, and that the buyers are trying to get their deposits back only due to a slowdown in the condo market.

Prices range between $1,075,000 and $1,470,000, with a choice of two- to four-bedroom residences

Other Updates


ArborCoconut Grove


Arbor - Coconut Grove



Developers of this five-story condo building managed to nab a $20.66 million construction loan this March.

Other amenities at this pet-friendly condo building include a lush courtyard pool, social lounge, rooftop lounge and pilates deck.

Prices start at $799,000, with a choice of two- to three-bedroom residences

Built on one of Miami’s few private marinas, the boutique condo construction features residences starting at $815,000 and penthouses starting at $1,350,000. The developer financing program will cover up to 60% of the purchase price, hoping to make the residences within reach for many.

Real Estate News Miami Real Estate Market Forecast 2020 & State of the Market in 2019
The Miami real estate market has been moving in interesting ways over the past few years. Some believe the market is bottoming out after a few years of softness, others think that we are set for another condo bust. Let’s take a look at the Miami market landscape and see where things may go from here. Let’s start with a brief history... The market crashed in 2008 along with the rest of the nation, and then from 2010-2015 the Miami market had a huge run-up in prices to the point that pretty much everyone who invested around 2010 made very significant profits. After the dollar strengthened in 2014, the very hot real estate market here in Miami started softening, as the Europeans and Latin American countries lost much of their purchasing power in the exchange rates (on the other hand, those who already had their money here made a killing). Since 2015-2016, the condo prices have gone sideways and down as inventory has increased, creating some pain for sellers and a great opportunity...
Top Miami Beach Neighborhoods Ranked for Public Transportation
Lifestyle Top Miami Beach Neighborhoods Ranked for Public Transportation
The reality is that for the typical visitor or resident of Miami Beach, they come to walk, bike, skateboard, and scooter around town, but it’s still important to know you public transit options. Getting around any city becomes that much easier when you have multiple public transportation options at your disposal. Miami, for one, has an intricate public transportation system that includes options like the Metrobus, Metrorail, Metromover, Tri-rail and the Trolley. In this blog, we’ve ranked the top Miami Beach neighborhoods on the basis of their ease of access to public transit systems, making it easier for tourists and locals to know how to cruise this coastal city. The reason you won’t see a super high score for any of these neighborhoods is because the only public transportation options are street-based (trolley and bus) without dedicated or preferred lanes as opposed to any public-transit-only lanes or dedicated systems like rail. Plus, the only public transit in and out of the...

Miami Beach vs South Beach: It’s All About the Lifestyle
Lifestyle Miami Beach vs South Beach: It’s All About the Lifestyle
There is quite a lot of confusion as to the difference between South Beach and Miami Beach. Where does one begin and the other one end? In many people’s minds South Beach is the glitzy, fun, sexy place they come and stay for a weekend and then head home to their cold, gray hometown. :) And Miami Beach is, well, what is Miami Beach? It’s actually quite simple. Miami Beach is a bona fide city which includes South Beach as one of its neighborhoods. Miami Beach is a sunny, laid-back subtropical island located just a stone’s throw from the city of Miami across Biscayne Bay. With its linear shape, the island of Miami Beach naturally lends itself to diversity in its neighborhoods. It has a few key neighborhoods and a handful more sub-neighborhoods, each of which has its own character and attracts its own distinct crowd -- from party-all-nighters to families looking for wholesome fun, beach bums to everything in between. And all of them meld into a total culture that makes Miami Beach so...
