The Brickell-area project will also include upgrades to Southside Park and a state-of-the-art firehouse. Its proximity to the Underline and Brickell Metrorail Station is expected to draw buyer attention as well as street-level interaction.

After changing hands, it seems this narrow piece of riverfront property is finally making headway.
Demolition is now underway at the site, after developer Brick Group acquired a permit in December last year.

The planned riverfront tower is set to rise 58 stories with 198 hotel rooms and 70 residential condos. Designed by Kobi Karp, the slim tower will also feature two restaurants – one rooftop and the other ground-level.


Other Updates


Island Bay - Edgewater

Island Bay - Edgewater


With its
utilities deal in place, this 60-story twin tower project by the Melo Group is one step closer to construction. Designed by Arquitectonica, the façade of both towers will feature unique zig-zag patterns and have a lighting scheme for the night, adding to Miami’s skyline.

While it could take the project two to three years to get all its permits in place, for now, the development is expected to rise 648 feet on Edgewater’s last vacant waterfront parcel. The residential tower is set to include 792 condos and 12,600 sq. ft. of retail while connecting to the Baywalk. Residents will also get easy access to the water as small docks with steps are being designed for kayakers and paddle boarders to walk up ashore.

Aston Martin ResidencesDowntown

G&G Business Developments made sure audiences took notice of the
addition of luxury kitchen amenities to their branded residences. Inviting Britain’s acclaimed Chef Justin Brown to their sales gallery, the cooking demo commemorated traditional English recipes cherished by the Royals, served alongside Gaggenau’s stainless steel appliances and Bulthaup cabinets.

With its first glass installed last month, the 66-story high-rise is on track for a 2022 completion. Featuring a unique wind-sail design, the ultra-luxury tower is designed to offer residents signature Aston Martin touches throughout its common areas, the only deep-water superyacht marina in Downtown, a sky lounge, infinity pool, spa, two cinemas, an art gallery, barber station, kids’ room, optional butler service, and more.

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

Ten30South Beach

Ten30 - South Beach


Developer Shoma Group closed on a
$17.6 million construction loan for its boutique condo offering. Planned to offer moderately priced condos in highly sought-after South Beach, Ten30 is set to rise four stories high with a total of 43 residences. Amenities include a 6,000 sq. ft. rooftop deck, lounge, and outdoor kitchen with barbecue and yoga space. 

With developers looking to make the project more affordable for domestic buyers, its initial deposit requirements have been lowered to 15%. Further, qualified domestic buyers can get up to 97% financing. 

Prices start in the low $400,000s, with a choice of studios to two-bedroom residences

Eighty Seven ParkNorth Beach

Eighty Seven Park

paid off its $155 million construction loan with more than 90% of residences sold. Such a quick recovery simply points to the high-demand of this recently completed condo offering.

Its plush interiors and luxuriant exterior living spaces come designed by the Paris-based studio of Rena Dumas Architecture Interieure (RDAI).

Opinions and Advice Want to Live in a Penthouse? Here’s What You Need to Know
Penthouses are the pinnacle of condo living. Living in a penthouse means waking up to sweeping views and expansive living spaces that feel like a home in the sky. Add on luxury amenities and, well, now you’re getting the picture. While it might sound cliche and too good to be true, this is the reality of owning a penthouse. But what really is penthouse apartment or condo? And are they worth it? Read on for answers to all of these questions about penthouses. So what IS a penthouse? Penthouses are, historically, a separate build on the very top of an apartment block or hotel, fitted with the best interiors, and both indoor and outdoor space. The term came about in the 1920s when developers started transforming previously undesirable and often dirty “attic” space into incredible and spacious  properties on the top of their developments. Distinguished by their opulence, as well as their world-class views, they were immediately popular and became synonymous with status and wealth (read...
Anatomy of HOA Fees: Are Miami Condo Fees actually High?
Opinions and Advice Anatomy of HOA Fees: Are Miami Condo Fees actually High?
Condo living is often considered more convenient compared to single family houses. Someone else does almost all of your maintenance -- be it the yard, the roof, the pool, you name it. Plus, there’s typically always some kind of security/surveillance. Amenities like swimming pools, gyms and front desks staff are a standard. And, if you buy into a luxury condo, you can get access to full-service spas, wine cellars, golf simulators, lounges, or even art galleries are all part of what you can call home. And while some think there’s a price for these conveniences and little luxuries, the overall cost is about the same as living in a home. The only difference is when living in a condo, you pay one monthly fee for all this, and it’s called your HOA fees or condo fees. Especially in a city like Miami, condos pack in the entire gamut of resort-style amenities fit for a year-round staycation. Not to mention, there’s usually a team of starchitects and internationally renowned designers behind...

It's the moment we've all been waiting for... after months of carefully staying at home to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Miami begins to reopen as part of a phased process, including real estate offices and showing activities.

Real Estate News Love Miami Vice? Mid Century Modern? Miami’s Most Luxurious Vintage and Retro Condo Buildings are Calling
While many of Miami’s bold, new constructions are unequivocally gorgeous, the city has a long-standing reputation for charming and delightful architecture, earned by the many fabulous design visions from our colorful, subtropical past. In fact, there are still many Miamians and design aficionados among us who, in fact, prefer the classic and timeless appeal of living in a historic or vintage edifice over the temptation of the super luxe and brand-spanking-new buildings sprouting up.  Older buildings also come with time-tested, solid construction, combined with the aesthetic charm of architectural design, complete with materials and finishes, from a bygone age. Another bonus of some of Miami’s art deco, mid century modern and retro condo buildings is they often have larger floor plans.  For those interested in learning more about Miami’s top vintage condo buildings, read on… Art Deco: A Miami Beach Legacy (1930’s - 1940’s) The Carlyle Condo Hotel - Miami Beach, FL - Photo...
