Other Updates

The Estates at Acqualina Sunny Isles Beach

The Estates at Acqualina - Sunny Isles Beach

The ultra-luxury Estates were in the news this October for two reasons. One, its developers have requested the FAA for an approval to build a taller tower at a record-breaking height of 692 feet above ground. And two, the $1.5 billion project secured a $558 million loan from the Bank of the Ozarks. The remainder of the financing will come from buyer deposits and developer equity.

Stellar amenities at this waterfront, two-tower ultra-luxury condo project include a lobby designed by Karl Lagerfeld, an ice-skating rink, golf simulator, Wall Street trader’s clubroom, bowling alley, Formula One racing simulator, FlowRider wave simulator, soccer field, dog park, multiple infinity pools, beachfront restaurant and more.

Prices range between $4.2 million and $14.5 million, with a choice of three- to seven-bedroom residences. Penthouses start at $32 million.

Dezer Development – Sunny Isles Beach

An entity tied to Dezer Development just picked up an acre of waterfront land worth $31.7 million in Sunny Isles Beach. The Publix-owned site at 18320 Collins Avenue sits adjacent to long-time owned properties by the company. This brings up the total waterfront acreage owned by Gil Dezer (including this latest parcel) to 4.5 acres. According to a report, documents filed with Miami-Dade County suggest that Dezer Development could be planning a condo tower with a marina component on the waterfront parcel.

So, would you like to see another luxury condo come up in Sunny Isles Beach? Comment below and let us know!

Miami’s large community of performing artists, as well as folks who just love to dress up, will lose a favorite provider of costumes and theater props when ABC Costume Shop closes this summer.

All Those Cranes You See in the Miami Skyline? Most are Apartment Buildings, Not Condos
Real Estate News All Those Cranes You See in the Miami Skyline? Most are Apartment Buildings, Not Condos
While Miami is known for its extensive array of luxury condos, not all of those new construction projects popping up everywhere are condo towers. In fact, a huge majority of them are actually apartment buildings, geared toward young urban professionals who would rather rent than buy. According to the Miami Downtown Development Authority, in December of 2018 their Market Insights reported 4,480 rental apartments under construction in the greater Downtown area, which consists of Edgewater, Overtown, Wynwood and Brickell. That number nearly doubles the 2,317 condos that were being built in the same area at that time. Recently Completed Rental Apartment Projects Below are some of the most recently completed projects in the downtown area. Some are offering move-in bonuses to lure tenants, such as a month of free rent, and perks such as 24-hour concierge service.

Lifestyle Top Miami (Mainland) Neighborhoods Ranked for Public Transportation
Whether you dream of going carless or simply want to get around town without endless hours of driving, a great public transportation system can truly be a blessing. Not only does it take the stress off your daily commute, but also helps the environment. This is exactly why the City of Miami has an elaborate public transit system. (Frankly it is not yet on par with major world-class transportation systems out there, but it is a work in progress and improving). Getting around Miami mainland is made easier by the Metrobus, Metromover, Metrorail, Tri-rail and Trolley systems. And, these transit options don’t just string together the mainland, but also link to the beaches and help whisk you to other parts of South Florida (and beyond) as well. For complete maps, fares, schedules and other details simply click away: Metrobus, Metromover, Metrorail, Tri-rail, City of Miami Trolley.

Whatever Happened to Related Group's Cancelled Condo Projects?
Real Estate News Whatever Happened to Related Group's Cancelled Condo Projects?
Back in 2016, one of Miami’s leading developers shut down two major condo tower projects in response to a slow condo sales cycle. These projects were Related Group’s One Brickell, located at 444 Brickell Avenue, and Auberge Residences & Spa Miami at 1400 Biscayne Boulevard. Each proposed condo development consisted of three towers, for a total of six condo towers and over 2800 proposed residential units. To date, both projects are still in limbo as Related Group continues to keep them on temporary hold, anticipating an improvement in market conditions in the near future. One Brickell, located next to the Brickell Bridge, was originally proposed in 2014 as a complex of three towers, designed by Arquitectonica, with 82, 77, and 57 stories. The project called for a total of 1,400 residential units and 249 hotel rooms, as well as 41,272 square feet of office space, 24,263 square feet of retail, and a parking lot with 1,993 parking spaces. TRG stopped construction on the first tower...
Brickell vs Brickell Key
Real Estate News Brickell vs Brickell Key
The Brickell neighborhood, and its adjacent Brickell Key, are among Miami’s most desirable neighborhoods for young professionals who want a walkable lifestyle close to where they work and play. But there are some major differences between the two neighborhoods. If you’re trying to decide between moving to Brickell or Brickell Key, here are some points to consider about each location. Lifestyle Miami’s high-powered Brickell neighborhood is known as the “Manhattan of the South.” Brickell is where you go when you want to revel in the urban lifestyle, surrounded by highrise condos and office buildings, and with tons of restaurant and nightlife options on every corner. Brickell Key is a separate island, a tranquil residential enclave right beside the urban hustle-bustle of Brickell. There is only one way in and out of Brickell Key, so it feels like a small village. Brickell Key has quiet streets with speed bumps galore. It has its own markets, including a flower shop, beauty salon...
South Beach is Getting Lots of New Park Space
Lifestyle South Beach is Getting Lots of New Park Space
Miami Beach city planning has always impressed me. Between its protection and maintenance of the coastline and beach amenities, along with a slew of great outdoor spaces and public facilities, South Beach has always been one of Miami’s best-loved places to live. More impressive still is the fact that it just keeps getting better. Currently in the works are two new parks that will serve the South Beach area with 5.8 acres of green space, shady trees, and even more ways to enjoy the outdoorsy, freewheeling SoBe lifestyle. Pride Park While parking in SoBe is still an issue, who wouldn't love to see that parking lot across the street from the Miami Beach Convention Center torn down to make way for a beautiful new park, with fresh new shade trees and more opportunities to get around by using your legs instead of your car?
