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 Selling a Home For Sale By Owner: 11 Things All Home Sellers Should Know
When selling your home, it’s understandable that you’ll want to make as much money as possible from the sale, and you may be weighing the pros and cons of saving a little money by selling the home yourself without hiring a real estate agent. Real estate agents typically charge a 5-7% commission on the sale price of your home, so you could potentially save thousands of dollars by selling the home yourself, and this is the most common reason why home sellers make the decision to sell on their own. But is it a sound decision? While saving money on commission sounds like it could be a benefit, there are actually several drawbacks to selling the home yourself unless you happen to be very well trained and experienced in the field of real estate, have lots of time on your hands, are a whiz at marketing, and have some legal know-how.

The Future Miami Riverwalk is Taking Forever
Brickell The Future Miami Riverwalk is Taking Forever
The Miami River meanders through the heart of Miami, diving the twin, skyscraper-strewn districts of Downtown and Brickell before it bends northwest and heads toward the airport. Planners intend the river to someday have a riverwalk, also known as the Miami River Greenway, running along both sides, much like the one that already exists along the New River in Fort Lauderdale. An idea that has been in the works for decades, the river walk will someday add life and vitality to the downtown core. But the river walk is a more complicated proposition than its sibling, the Miami bay walk. The river walk has more obstacles and, unlike with the bay walk, there is no one central section that is mostly complete to serve as a catalyst for the rest.     The closest it gets to a functioning river walk is the area where the river opens to the bay. There the river walk is wide and inviting, festooned with public art as it wraps around either side of the gap. On the south side of the river, it...
