Privacy and exclusivity are a given with a Bal Harbour address.

The Best Located Condo in Bal Harbour

We vote the beachfront St. Regis Residences to be the best located condos in this upscale neighborhood. Why? For one, they sit right across the fab Bal Harbour Shops (the lifeline of this trendy district). Secondly, they are also just half a mile from Kane Concourse that gets you to downtown Bal Harbour and transports you to the mainland as well.

We’re also tempted to name a runner up here - One Bal Harbour. This condo-hotel comes attached to the waterfront Ritz-Carlton and boasts of some of the finest views in the neighborhood. Overlooking Haulover Cut, most units get unbeatable access to breathtaking views of the inlet along with all the boats passing by and the lush beach park across.
