Privacy and exclusivity are a given with a Bal Harbour address. Though this ultra-luxury neighborhood has its own tranquil beachfront, it also benefits from being just a 20-minute drive away from South Beach’s spoils and the mainland’s culture and shopping destinations.

Those looking for a Publix Super Market or Starbucks just need to cross south of 96th St. and head into neighboring Surfside.

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.

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...

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.
