Miami’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: March 2021

Miami’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: March 2021

Apr 05, 2021 April 05, 2021

Miami’s luxury condo market has seen a huge demand from wealthy buyers over the last year. Especially those from the Northeast have shown heightened interest due to the lucrative tax savings offered by the State of Florida and the pandemic policies to keep state businesses open. This seems to be giving luxury condo developers a boost of confidence, as we saw an unusually high number of sales launches and contracts being reported for March 2021 compared to the last two years. 

Downtown’s Waldorf Astoria plus Bay Harbor Island’s Ambienta and Onda launched sales this March. South Beach’s 57 Ocean, TEN30, and Downtown’s E11even Hotel and Residences reported blazing sales. Additionally, a whole slew of pre-constructions sped their way through planning and approvals such as Edgewater’s Island Bay. Even the long-quiet One River Point project witnessed a revival as its developer started renewing their push for permits.

Read on for details on these and other updates in our Miami condo pre-construction market roundup for March 2021:
