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!

Opinions and Advice How and When to Fire a Real Estate Agent
One of the most important factors to consider when selling your home is the real estate agent that you hire to sell the house for you, as this person needs to be knowledgeable, dependable, easy to work with, and experienced in achieving successful sales that fulfill the seller’s goals. Sadly, many people hire a real estate agent based on factors that aren’t always the smartest. Perhaps the realtor is a friend of your parents, they helped your neighbor buy their home, or they play soccer on weekends with your brother. But the reality is that not all realtors possess the same skill sets. A real estate agent that focuses on representing buyers will certainly possess a different set of skills from one whose primary focus is selling homes and making money for the seller. An agent that works with luxury single-family residences may not have much experience in selling condominium apartments and vice versa. So it’s important to take the time to interview any agent that you plan to work...
