Miami’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: October 2017

Nov 25, 2017 November 25, 2017

Check out who got sent back to the drawing board and who started vertical construction this October. Here’s looking at all that went on during Halloween month in Miami’s condo pre-construction market.


Missoni Baia - Edgewater

Staying true to its brand image, Missoni Baia had quite an unconventional start to its groundbreaking. The ceremony kicked off with a man on a jet pack whisking away the saxophone player to perform mid-air. This is Missoni’s first-ever residential venture. The luxury condo tower will soar 57 stories, bringing 249 branded residences to Edgewater. Highlights include interiors by the Italian fashion house, 5 swimming pools, flow-through deck with cabanas, elevated tennis court and access to a members-only in Key Biscayne.

Prices start at $500,000, with a choice of one to five bedrooms

Aston Martin Residences - Downtown

The Aston Martin Residences broke ground at 25% sold this October. DJ Irie kicked off the event with a confetti blast and fireworks. This is the first residential project by the luxury car makers from Bond. Announced to soar 66 stories with 391 luxury condos, residents will also have access to signature textures and styling from Aston Martin, a rooftop helipad, super yacht marina, two-level ocean-view fitness center, full service spa, 55th floor infinity-edge pool, private club and more.

Prices range from $600,000s to $50 million, with a choice of one to four bedroom-units, penthouses and a duplex penthouse.

Condos Designed by Carlos Zapata - Arts and Entertainment District

A new condo project designed by Carlos Zapata (of Ho Chi Minh’s Bitexco Financial Tower fame) is in the pipeline for Downtown. 457 condos will come housed in a 45 story tower, with a neighboring 11-story tower carrying 150 hotel rooms and 30,000 sq ft of office space. The project has already received its go-ahead from Miami’s Planning, Zoning, and Appeals Board.

Condos by José Isaac Peres – Mid-Beach

After being sent back to the drawing board by the design review board, Brazilian billionaire José Isaac Peres is back with changes to his condo development. The developer has re-submitted plans with provisions for public access to the beach, reduction in building width by 5 feet and a new façade. The new 17-story building is being designed by Arquitectonica and will feature 89 condo residences.


Luxury Condos by P&O Global Technologies - North Bay Village

The village commission approved North Bay Village’s first condo project this October. The 19-story, 54-condo building will rise on a waterfront parcel on Harbor Island. Developed by Malaysia-based P&O Global Technologies, the project will be self-financed, unlike most Miami pre-constructions that require presales for funding. The approval came after the commission prescribed a couple of measures to make the structure more palatable to its neighbors. Architect Juan Azulay plans to give each unit at least two bedrooms with two view exposures. Also, there will be no more than 4 three-bedroom units per floor.

Expected starting price $650 per sq. ft.

Boutique condos by 1414 West Avenue LLC – South Beach

The Miami Beach Design Review Board approved a 14-unit condo project proposed by 1414 West Avenue. The 5-story boutique development won approval on waivers to incorporate mechanical car lifts and increase the maximum lot coverage to include an enclosed garage. The modern building is envisioned with cantilevered balconies and a rooftop deck. Units will range from 672 sq. ft. one-bedroom/one-bathroom condos to 1,315 sq. ft. three-bedroom/two-and-a-half bathroom units.

October brought great news for folks at Two Roads Development (the people behind Elysee). First, the developers were able to secure a $16.5 million construction loan.

Amenities attached to the condo development include a yoga studio, racquetball court, basketball half-court, pool deck, dog park, soccer field, food market, jam room with recording studio and a ‘Sky Deck’ with its own set of pools, a lounge, observatory and Tai Chi deck.

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. In an attempt to appeal to a wide range of new residents, each new project aims to be taller, more luxurious, and offer the most exciting set of amenities imaginable, and could bring more than 10,000 residential units to Miami over the next few years.

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...
