Taking a cue from the New Year and new beginnings, we saw the condo pre-construction market make three ground breakings this December. After months of silence, there was finally some hustle from developers at Resorts World Miami. Ritz-Carlton Residences went ahead to add another power-packed amenity to their list, while Aston Martin sealed the deal on becoming Miami’s second tallest. Read in-depth about these and more below:

After securing a construction loan in October, Elysee went on to break ground this December. Developers, Two Roads Development are on-track for their 2019 completion date.

Proposals


Resorts World MiamiArts and Entertainment District

After months of quiet, Resorts World Miami finally broke the silence with a request to the City for a lease on off-shore land for its marina. The submerged land is jointly owned by City of Miami and the Florida Department of Transportation. Developers announced their plans of building a 50-slip, mega-yacht harbor last year. The multimillion dollar, mixed-use project will also feature two residential towers, a hotel, retail, parking and an 800 ft. baywalk. Plans for its casino component have made no headway as yet.

Condos by José Isaac Peres – Mid-Beach

Sent to the drawing board last year, the Brazilian billionaire’s team re-submitted tweaked plans in October to the Miami Beach Design Review Board. Replacing Marlborough House, the 90-unit project got approved with inclusion of public beach access and reduced width. The 17-story luxury condo building will now feature a 15-foot-wide beach path, complete with lampposts, benches and landscaping accessible to the public.

The Ritz-Carlton ResidencesMid-Beach

Upping the ante in condo amenities, this Pierro Lissoni-designed project will have its own aquatic helipad.

Other standout amenities at this ultra-luxury development include a restaurant, wellness center, pool deck, kids club, 33rd floor private club, lounge, two bars and guest suites.
