Miami’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: September 2020

Oct 05, 2020 October 05, 2020

September seems to have been the month of approvals for pre-construction condos in Miami. First, we had Mid-Beach’s Aman Tower through its first round of approvals and ready to replace the historic Versailles Hotel. Next, the masterplan, backed by SHVO, to restore the Raleigh Hotel and include a condo tower has been approved. And lastly, Dezer Development’s 30-acre megaproject will be moving forward with a second plan review after a positive first vote.

But that’s not all. There are plenty of other updates part of the September edition of our monthly roundup of pre-construction condo developments in Miami. Read on for details on these and other South Florida pre-construction condo buildings and new developments in our monthly round-up below, including details on the Fort Lauderdale Four Seasons’ construction status, Villa Valencia’s amenity update, and more.

View and search our list of available Miami pre-construction condo units and penthouses, which is updated daily.

Approved - Miami Pre-Construction Condos

Raleigh Hotel and Condo Master Plan – South Beach

Raleigh Hotel and Condo Master Plan

The Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board
voted 5-1 to approve a 175 ft. oceanfront condo, part of the Raleigh Master Plan, after NYC-based developer SHVO accepted a haircut (down from 200 feet to 175 feet, or 18 floors to 16) for its luxury condo-hotel designed by Kobi Karp.

The glass condo tower will be part of the 3-acre Master Plan for The Raleigh Hotel, which will also include and unify the neighboring South Seas and Richmond Hotels. The project aims to preserve the front lobbies of the Richmond and South Seas Hotels, while 84% of their space will be repurposed into the condo tower. However, the board has directed that The Raleigh will first need to be restored to all its former glory, and can only be used as a hotel post redevelopment as well, before any of the other plans are put into action.

Aman Tower – Mid-Beach

Aman Tower - Mid-Beach

Co-developed by Vlad Doronin’s OKO Group and Len Blavatnik’s Access Industries, the Aman Tower has won its first round of approvals at a presentation to the Miami Beach City Commission. The condo-hotel has been approved for a height of 250 feet. Though taller than its surrounding buildings, the building’s slimmer design helps it preserve view corridors in the Faena District.

While the development’s hotel component is set to rebuild the historic (gutted) Versailles hotel, the condo tower will sit to the southeast of the property. Japanese architect Kengo Kuma has designed the 23-unit condo tower, whereas Belgian architect Jean-Michel Gathy will be designing the 56-key Versailles hotel. 

According to the OKO Group, the Aman hospitality brand has already built 11 properties close to UNESCO world heritage sites, globally. For its Mid-Beach project too, developers aim to stay respectful of their physical surroundings as well as the culture of Miami Beach. The condo-hotel will be presented for its second round of voting to Miami Beach’s Historic Preservation Board in October.

30-Acre Mega Project with Luxury Condos - North Miami Beach

30-Acre Mega Project with Luxury Condos - North Miami Beach

After a successful first reading, developer Gil Dezer will be moving forward with a second reading to the North Miami City Commission for his proposed 30-acre, mixed-use, megadevelopment transforming the Intracoastal Mall and a 3-story office building close by.

The Zyscovich Architects-designed development will feature 2,000 residential units inclusive of luxury condos and rental apartments, 375,000 sq. ft. of retail with a grocery store, 200,000 sq. ft. of office space, 250 hotel rooms, a harbor, central park, and much more. Further, the four-phased project has been approved on the undertaking that Dezer will also build police and fire substations, a community center, and infrastructure around the megadevelopment.

Proposed - Miami Pre-Construction Condos

LEED-Certified, 36-story Condo Tower by Grupo T&C - Edgewater

Proposed by the Lima-based development firm of Grupo T&C, a brand-new 36-story, 322-unit condo tower could make its way to Edgewater. Sitting right behind 
Quantum on the Bay and 1800 Club, the Kobi Karp-designed development will include 6,183 sq. ft. of retail space, 27 bicycle spaces, and 372 parking spaces. The LEED-certified project will feature 27 studios, 160 units with one bedroom, 84 units with two bedrooms, and 54 units with three bedrooms, all ranging from 525 sq. ft. to 1,560 sq. ft. in size.

Prepared to take on any future pandemics, the luxury high-rise will feature a temperature reader in its lobby, touchless doors at the entrance, eye and voice recognition systems in its touchless elevators, and eye-recognition tech to open the door for each unit resident. Awaiting a vote from the City of Miami’s Urban Development Review Board, other proposed amenities at the tower will include a rooftop pool deck, a 9th-floor amenity center with gym and lounge, plus an outdoor dining area, and garden.

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...
