The tower is set to feature 60,000 sq. ft. of spa and wellness space, 250,000 sq. ft. of office space, and 1,650 parking spaces. 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


With closings started this January, developer Terra Group has already
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.

Eighty Seven Park represents the first residential venture in the U.S. by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano. Its plush interiors and luxuriant exterior living spaces come designed by the Paris-based studio of Rena Dumas Architecture Interieure (RDAI).

Real Estate News Miami Building Boom 2021: These are the 12 New Condo Development Projects Planned to Date
It’s a trend we’ve been talking about since the last quarter of 2020 - waves of buyers are contributing to one of the biggest real estate booms in Miami history. As individuals and businesses escape high tax states like New York and California, and have the freedom to work from any location, luxury condo developers in Miami are announcing new project after new project.   Miami condo developers have announced over a dozen new and relaunched condo projects since the beginning of 2021.

If you love coastal living with walkable access to Atlantic Ocean beaches, and you want to move to a beachfront address while bypassing the hustle and bustle of South Beach, there are two beachside communities to consider when looking to make your move: Sunny Isles Beach and Surfside.  While these communities are practically next-door neighbors (with ritzy Bal Harbour nestled between them) and they share many amenities, including direct beach access to the Atlantic. Plus, they both are in prime locations that provide quick and easy access to airports, shopping, arts and culture, and outdoor living, living there could not be more different from one another.   As insiders who’ve lived in these popular Miami neighborhoods, we’ve broken down the similarities and differences between these two beautiful seaside communities in case you are looking to move to Miami.

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...
