Dec 17, 2017 December 17, 2017

There was a lot of buzz in the pre-construction market this November (and it wasn’t all Thanksgiving). Apeiron finally managed an approval after being stalled since 2015, both Arbor and Aurora broke ground, we could be looking at even smaller micro units in the future, and yet another condo project got shelved. Read on to find out this and more below:

Grand Opening


The IvoryBay Harbor Islands

A rooftop party was held to celebrate the grand opening of The Ivory residences in November. The waterfront, boutique building is home to 40 designer-ready condos. At 70% sold, the building features large terraces, glorious canal views and modern open kitchens. Residents of The Ivory can now move in to enjoy their rooftop pool, sundeck with barbecue spot, events/meeting room, gym and more.
 
Prices range between the low $700,000s and $2.6 million, with a choice of one to three bedroom residences

Commenced Closings


Echo BrickellBrickell

A completed Echo Brickell is moving forward with closings. At 97% sold, there are only a handful of condos left to be booked. Architect Carlos Ott and YOO Studio Design collaborated on this resplendent tower to ‘echo’ beach-style luxury in Brickell’s mainland. Standing 57 stories tall, the skyscraper is home to 180 limited edition residences custom-designed by Carlos Ott. Other 5-star amenities include an infinity-edge pool and deck, suspended gym and spa overlooking pool, resort-style food and beverage services, as well as exceptional concierge services.

Approvals


Apeiron at the Jockey ClubNorth Miami

With key zoning approvals in place, the Apeiron at the Jockey Club is finally looking to launch presales in the 2nd quarter of 2018. The development will bring a 120-unit, 90-key condo-hotel to the Biscayne corridor. Highlights of this multi-use project include designs by Pritzker-winning Rafael Moneo, a 5-acre health and wellness facility, 50-slip deep-water marina, tennis courts and multiple pools. The Jockey Club complex will also gain a new dog park, children’s playground, Bayfront promenade, improved landscaping and other upgrades.

Other Updates


CanvasArts & Entertainment District

If you qualify for a Fannie Mae loan, then developers at Canvas have great news for you. In an attempt to lure local buyers, NR Investments has lowered deposit requirements to 20% for domestic residents.
The 513-unit luxury building is approved for 95-97% financing by Fannie Mae. This also means that buyers who put down 20% will only need 5% equity if they qualify for a Fannie Mae, putting the rest back in their pocket. On track for a spring 2018 completion, Canvas boasts of several amenities including sunrise-sunset pools, eco-friendly gardens, yoga gardens, Zen treatment rooms, multi-media screening rooms, artwork in common spaces and much more.

Prices for remaining units range from $345,000 to $690,000, with a choice of studios, one and two bedroom residences

Miami Commission approves micro‘er’ micro-units

In step with the micro unit trend, the city commission passed an ordinance bringing the minimum size of micro units down to 275 sq. ft. (from its original 400 sq. ft.). This means micro units can get even smaller in Miami. The decision was taken in order to leave a smaller footprint, while making neighborhoods more walkable and quality housing attainable.

Issues


Fasano Residences – South Beach

Developers, the HFZ Capital Group, have decided to cancel their luxury condo project in Miami Beach. The 67-unit development was to replace the Shore Club hotel. Between 40 and 45 percent presold, the New York-based developer is in the process of returning deposits. One of the rumored reasons for cancellation includes Fasano withdrawing its brand association with the development. Fasano’s portfolio currently spans 15 restaurants and 4 hotels, with more in the pipeline.
