As noted in our most recent Newsletter, we're seeing tremendous Foreign Buyer demand not only for Miami Beach Condos and waterfront homes, but for general Miami Real Estate located in premier waterfront locations. There's been virtually NO new large-scale construction in six years (since the start of the Real Estate downturn in late 2006), and there's virtually no watefront land available for development in Miami Beach. Even in previously distressed Miami Beach condos, most notably The Bentley Bay, we've seen a dramatic decline in available inventory of condos available for sale. In 2008-2009 there were well over 100 distressed sales, and today there are just EIGHT condos currently for sale.

Prices for Bentley Bay condos are also UP significantly from market lows averaging $350/SF to a current average asking price of $631/SF. It's my belief that the CLOSED sales prices will reach these new ASKING prices within the next year, due to the very limited number of Miami Beach condos available for sale. The overall inventory levels are also near six year lows for waterfront condos in the South of Fifth Street neighborhood- such as The Murano at Portofino, Continuum Miami Beach, Apogee, The Portofino Tower, Icon South Beach, Murano Grande, and The Yacht Club.

This rapid absorption of available Miami Beach condos inventory is due to the following :

  • Wealthy foreigners seeking a “safe haven” for their money. In Greater Miami, there is NO risk of government confiscation of property.
  • The strong anti-development regulations and political climate in Miami Beach, in addition to there being NO waterfront land available for large-scale construction.
  • Greater Miami continues to evolve and grow as an International cultural and tourist hub, with historically low crime rates.
  • The newer (and more luxurious) waterfront Miami Beach condo buildings built from 2000 - 2005 are architecturally unique.
  • The newest waterfront Miami Beach condos were built in THE best locations in Miami Beach, such as the South of Fifth Street neighborhood. For example, The Continuum Miami Beach Condos are on a twelve acre Oceanfront site that is at the SouthernEastern tip of Miami Beach. The site of The Continuum, for example, was THE LAST premier waterfront location in Miami Beach.

    Summarizing the top 21 most expensive sales of luxury homes and condominiums in Miami Beach's real estate market for the final quarter of 2011:

    Miami Beach Condos

    As indicated at bottom of this blog post, Eleven condominiums priced over $3 Million sold in Miami Beach in the final quarter of 2011 for an average price of $1,765 per square ft. of living space.

    Miami Beach Homes

    Also indicated at the bottom of the blog post, TEN waterfront homes in Miami Beach priced over $2 Million were sold in the final quarter of 2011, at an average sales price of $720 per square ft. of living space.

    The available Miami Beach luxury waterfront home and condo inventory drastically declined last year. As I previously highlighted in my 2011 Miami Beach Condos Year End Review, affluent foreign (and mostly cash buyers) have been taking advantage of recent real estate price corrections by spending over $3 BILLION in purchasing luxury homes andn condos in Greater Miami. As a result, we've seen a dramatic drop in
    Miami Beach's premier waterfront home and condo inventory. The most searched and sought-after Miami Beach waterfront homes are in the luxury island communities of Palm, Star, Hibiscus, Sunset Islands I - IV, and the Venetian Island Chain that links Miami with Miami Beach. The highest priced condo buildings are The Continuum on South Beach, Apogee Miami Beach, The IL Villaggio (directly on Ocean Drive), The Bath Club (North Beach area), and The Setai Condo/Hotel on Collins Avenue.

    Given the strong anti-development sentiment and building regulations in Miami Beach, the future supply of premier waterfront homes and condos in Miami Beach will continue to be VERY limited. Combined with an amazing city and beach lifestyle, I believe that high net worth foreign cash buyers to will continue to invest in Miami Beach luxury homes and condos in premier locations. Therefore, I'm convinced that in 2012 we will see strong price appreciation for premier waterfront Miami Beach homes and condos.

    Miami Beach Condos

    A quick summary of what's been happening in Miami Beach's condo market in 2011, especially for the premier waterfront luxury condo buildings built after 2001:

    Over the past six months, the available Miami Beach condo inventory has drastically declined. As indicated in a recent Miami Herald Article (click for details), high net worth foreign & mostly cash buyers have been taking advantage of recent Miami Beach Real Estate price corrections by spending over $3 BILLION on SE Florida Real Estate in 2011. As a result, we've seen a dramatic drop in Miami Beach's condo listing inventory. Given the lack of (a.k.a. NONE LEFT) waterfront land, the existing Art Deco architectural protections and building restrictions, as well as highly restrictive regulatory and construction codes- the future supply of premier waterfront condos in Miami Beach will continue to be very limited.

    Especially noteworthy for Miami Beach are the high $/Sq.Ft. closed sales prices in premier waterfront condo buildings such as The Setai, The Continuum on South Beach, Apogee South Beach, and the W Hotel/Condo Residences. The highest priced sale (in terms of $/Sq. Ft) for Miami Beach condos in 2011 were the following:

    The Setai Miami Beach Penthouse Penthouse A for a staggering $3,463 /Sq.Ft. ($21,500,000)
    The Continuum North Tower Condo #2101 for $1,674 /Sq.Ft. ($5,050,000)
    Apogee Miami Beach Condo #1603 for $2,177 /Sq.Ft. (6,000,000)
    The W Condo/Hotel Residence Upper Penthouse #3 for $2,142 / Sq.Ft. ($5,200,000)

    The Continuum South Beach Condos have all of the amenities and features of a five star resort.The Continuum also happens to be located in THE best Oceanfront location in all of Miami Beach- at the extreme Southeastern tip of South Beach. This makes The Continuum a popular destination for visitors and notables from around the world, including many Hollywood celebrities.

    Ryan Seacrest at Continuum Miami Beach

    While exercising at The Continuum's Sporting Club recently, I noticed that working out right next to me was none other than Ryan Seacrest (who's in excellent shape and works out HARD!). Ryan has been spotted at The Wall Nightclub in Miami Beach, and is known to enjoy the many attractions that Miami Beach has to offer.

    The Continuum's Sporting Club recently underwent extensive renovations to the Men's and Women's locker room / private Spa areas, as well as acquiring all-new fitness equipment. Brand new cardiovascular machines, weight machines, and various other upgrades were recently completed. The Sporting Club @ Continuum is now a world class fitness center- available exclusively to residents and guests of The Continuum Condominiums.

    The Continuum South Tower common area renovations have also been completed (see pictures below). The new South Tower lobby and condo building common areas look amazing! The Continuum South Tower is now on a par, if not exceeding, the highest luxury and decor standards set by nearby South of Fifth luxury condo buildings- such as Apogee, The Murano at Portofino, and Icon South Beach.

    As the Winter a.k.a. "High Season" approaches, we're witnessing a continuation of strong Buyer demand for Miami Beach luxury condos. I've written extensively this year about the sales surge in South Beach luxury condos to Foreign Buyers, some of these Miami Beach condo sales can be seen by clicking HERE. I'd like to highlight our clients eight most popular waterfront luxury condo buildings in Miami Beach.

    Miami Beach Luxury Condos

    The Continuum on South Beach (South of Fifth Condo)
    This is my personal favorite luxury condo building- an incredible location on Miami Beach- and quite possibly THE best condo location anywhere! The Continuum Condos feature two Oceanfront Towers located on a twelve acre site at the southernmost tip of Miami Beach. Unlike most luxury condos, the twelve acre site on which The Continuum condos are located is mostly devoted to resort-like amenities. The North and South Condo Towers occupy only a small fraction of the twelve acres comprising The Continuum common areas.

    The Continuum features two massive lagoon pools, three lit tennis courts, an incredible 12K + Sq. Ft. Fitness Center and many other luxury amenities. The residences are on a par with or exceeding most luxury properties with Five Star Resorts. The Continuum Miami Condos are located next to the best South of Fifth restaurants, lounges, and major tourist attractions.

    Apogee South Beach Condos (South of Fifth Ultra-Luxury Condos)
    Each Apogee Miami Beach condominium was built to be the equivalent of a penthouse in the sky. With just two basic floorplans, each individual condominium features 10' floor to ceiling windows, a gas grill on each terrace (unique in all of Miami Beach), and extra sound-insulation concrete barriers between condos and floors. This was the last of the luxury condo buildings built in the South of Fifth Neighborhood, with just 67 boutique ultra-luxury residences.

    Apogee South Beach Condos are located next to South Pointe Park, at the southernmost tip of Miami Beach. Apogee South Beach Condos generally sell for a premium above all the other buildings listed in this article- with prices starting well over $4 Million for the smallest floorplan.

    The Murano at Portofino (South of Fifth Condo)
    This was The Related Group's first luxury condo building to be built and designed from the ground up. Along with The Continuum & Apogee, this condo is among the most popular South of Fifth luxury condo buildings. The Murano at Portofino is the only luxury building to feature both a fresh water and salt water pool, along with The Piaggia Beach Club.

    The Murano at Portofino Condos are considered boutique, in that the three towers comprising this condominium complex feature a total of 188 condominiums. The Murano features a beautiful two story lobby, and Bayfront Townhomes facing the Miami Beach Marina and incredible views of Downtown Miami in the distance.

    Icon South Beach (South of Fifth Condo)
    This condo building was designed by Philip Starck, and is especially popular with Europeans and Northeastern condo buyers. Icon South Beach was completed in 2005, and shares a common entrance with the Murano Grande. Featuring an incredible & contemporary Fitness Center, along with two pools (lap pool and infinity edge wading pool), almost all Icon South Beach condos have views of the either Miami Beach or Downtown Miami skyline. Located at the entrance to Miami Beach (just off of Fifth Street), the Icon South Beach Condos appeal to the luxury buyer, especially those that look for a contemporary and minimalist design with grand building amenities.

    The Portofino Tower (South of Fifth Condo)
    The original South of Fifth Condo Building built during the Miami Beach real estate renaissance that began in the 1990's. The Portofino Tower set the contemporary standard for Miami Beach luxury condo buildings, as this was the first high-rise condo building built in the South of Fifth Neighborhood in over 15 years (constructed in 1997).

    The Portofino Tower features a unique and incredible fitness center located on the 27th floor, with panoramic views of the City of Miami Beach, Downtown Miami, Fisher Island, and the cruise ships of sailing out towards the Atlantic Ocean.

    The Il Villaggio (South Beach / Ocean Drive Condo)
    The ONLY ultra-luxury boutique condo building located at the northermost tip of Ocean Drive. The IL Villaggio is next to Lummus Park, which recently underwent a complete renovation with improved landscaping and oceanfront walkways.

    The Il Villaggio Condos are considered among the most exclusive and private luxury residences in all of Miami Beach. This is a boutique condo building with only 127 total condominiums and 17 stories in height. Many Hollywood and International celebrities call this building home (or vacation home).

    The Akoya Miami Beach (Mid-Miami Beach Area)
    The Akoya luxury condominiums are located on Collins Avenue, in one of Miami Beach's best Oceanfront locations. The Akoya condominiums were originally conceived as the sister building to the nearby Blue and Green Diamond condos.

    The unique appeal of The Akoya condos are that they are moderately priced luxury condominiums, with incredible views in almost all directions. The Akoya Condo Tower sits on a unique Oceanfront property that has unobstructed views to the West, and the building rises well above all obstructions to the North and South.

    The Bath Club (Mid-Miami Beach Area)
    Built on the site of the historic Bath Club resort, this contemporary condo tower and luxury townhome residences are THE most luxurious oceanfront condominiums in the Mid-Beach area of Miami Beach. Located just north of what was once termed "Millionaires Row", The Bath Club was built with the highest quality construction materials in all of Miami Beach. The Developer (Arthur Peebles) took great care in making sure that no attention to detail was overlooked. The entrance is a multi-story atrium lobby with Venetian Plaster and contemporary artwork welcoming residents and guests.

    The Bath Club sits on 5+ Oceanfront acres, with starter condos of two bedroom + luxury residences. The Bath Club residences are ideal for the Miami Beach luxury condo buyer looking for an ultra-luxury residence to get away from the bustle of South Beach.

    South of Fifth Condo News

    The renamed Ocean House luxury condominiums in Miami Beach, will be sold and marketed as one of the most exclusive condos in Miami Beach's South of Fifth Neighborhood. The Oceanfront ultra-luxury & boutique condominium development formerly known as The South of Fifth (S5) is getting a multi-million dollar upgrade by iStar Residential, which recently acquired all of the unsold condominiums.

    South of Fifth Condos Miami Beach

    The oversized ultra-luxury condominium complex has only seventeen beachfront residences. The Ocean House condominiums will be a luxurious enclave on famous Ocean Drive, along the coveted beachfront South of Fifth Street, one of South Florida’s most upscale residential neighborhoods. This boutique property boasts some of the most impressive residences in all of Greater Miami, with several beach condominiums measuring over 6,000 sq.ft. What makes this condominium complex unique are that these are ALL very large three bedroom + Oceanfront condominiums. For more information on the South of Fifth Ocean House Condominiums and to see available floorplans, please click HERE or on the picture above.

    Nearby luxury waterfront condo buildings include the large resort-like The Murano at Portofino, The Continuum South Beach, Apogee, The Murano Grande, Icon South Beach, and the Portofino Tower. The Ocean House condo residences are ideal for the ultra-luxury condo buyer, who values their privacy since the lobby and common areas are elegant and luxurious, yet understated. Given the very limited number of total residences and floors, each individual condo owner will be pampered with unique and personalized concierge services and a highly trained staff. This level of privacy and individualized attention is simply not an option in the nearby larger condo buildings in Miami Beach's South of Fifth Neighborhood.

    The Ocean House ultra-luxury condominium complex consists of three connected Oceanfront Towers, with ten floors total. Originally completed in late 2008, The Ocean House condominiums are located next door to the Bentley Hilton luxury condo/hotel (also formerly known at Bentley Beach). This was THE last premier location left to develop on Ocean Drive, where an extra-wide area of oceanfront Beach intersects with the nearby South Pointe Park and the Nikki Beach Complex.

    4 bedrooms/6.5 bathrooms

    The popular and highly sought-after South of Fifth street area (SoFi) has the most affluent and exclusive condominium buildings built in South Beach, starting with The Portofino Tower in 1997. SoFi (as locals call the area), is a pocket of luxury waterfront condos (and a few older homes) that connects the intercoastal to the ocean within a narrow stretch of land, this makes the distance from Bayfront to Oceanfront very short. Miami Beach's South of Fifth also offers many famous restaurants including Prime Italian, Joe's Stone Crabs, Smith & Wollensky located inside of South Pointe Park, and the newly opened (and excellent) Vic and Angelo's located at 125 Ocean Drive.
