Being curious about the kind of luxuries and amenities such major brand names bring to the neighborhood, we decided to list the five most expensive condo buildings in Sunny Isles Beach, along with an introduction to their world-class amenities. As a bonus, we’ve also listed the most highly anticipated pre-construction condos that could soon become one of the most expensive addresses in this coastal community.
Why Choose Sunny Isles Beach?
Sunny Isles Beach’s pristine white sand shoreline and casual, family-oriented vibe has always made it a top choice for exclusive living away from the city core. Locals have plenty of options to enjoy the great outdoors with the at-home Newport Fishing Pier to drop a line, next-door Haulover Beach Park for water sports, and the Oleta River State Park for kayaking and biking. Further, with world-class shopping down at the Shops at Bal Harbour or over the bridge at Aventura Mall and the fun and frolic of Miami Beach just 35 minutes away, it’s no wonder Sunny Isles Beach is one of the most desirable addresses in town - and these are its most luxurious condo residences:
