Mixed-use project by Crescent Heights and Terra Group

A 519-foot-tall condo-apartment tower has been partially approved by the Miami Beach Design Review Board to stand where the skeleton of the South Shore Hospital once remained. General approval had already been granted for a 46-story, 337-unit residential tower, along with a three-acre park, 15,000 sq. ft. retail pavilion and 578-space parking garage. This pre-construction project is set to occupy three city blocks between 500 and 700 Alton Road. The design variances not yet approved include the creation of 40 apartment units, each 480 sq. ft. in size (whereas city codes prescribe a minimum of 550 sq. ft.), plus two 110 sq. ft. detached signs saying "500 Alton" and "600 Alton" that would be visible from the McArthur Causeway. Other design details are still pending for review by the board.

Developer Avra Jain has planned a new condo-hotel to come up in the Miami River area. The condo units and 175 hotel rooms will be managed under the brand Sixty Hotels of New York. With most of the project being dedicated to hotel and office space, the residential units will only be available for sale post groundbreaking. The developer is hoping to break ground by January 2020. Much like most condo-hotels, residents will surely get access to the hotel’s amenities.

Prices are planned to average at $1,150 per sq. ft., or range between $1 million and $1.5 million

After topping off in April, this designer skyscraper by the late Zaha Hadid has approached Lotus Capital Partners for a $331 million condo inventory loan.

Closings at this 62-story tower are expected to take place this July. Upon opening, residents of this ultra- luxury tower will gain access to an outdoor wellness garden, yoga deck, spa with thermal suite, two pools, third floor sundeck, pool bar and lounge, club room, library, vertical gardens, underground parking and much more.

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...
