Just drive around Coconut Grove and you’ll see it everywhere – bulldozers, front loaders, dump trucks and trenchers. New construction, whether you like it or not, remains alive and well in the Grove and prices are stronger than ever.

There were 2 notable new construction sales in Center Grove in November.  Pictured above is 3220 Matilda Street, which sold for $1,265,890 ($384/sf). The property has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and 3,300 square feet of living space. The developer is Drive Development, which currently has a number of ongoing and completed projects throughout the neighborhood (including my two new construction sales back in July). The home features a contemporary design and beautiful wood features which are in line with Drive’s other projects, including a floating frame which Drive describes as “simultaneously providing shelter from Miami’s summer rains and serving as a versatile wood-screen shading device system that offers tranquil tree top views.” Below are some renderings of the gorgeous interior design and finishes of the home.

Another mentionable sale was 3190 Lamb Court (a small cul-de-sac tucked off of McDonald St.), which sold for $1,285,000 ($453/sf). The home has 4 beds, 4 baths and 2,833 square feet of living space.  The property features a dramatic double-height entry with floating staircase,  Italian 48″X24″ porcelain tile flooring, a sleek Euro-style kitchen with high-gloss custom cabinetry, quartz countertops and Thermador appliances, including a 36” gas dual fuel range.  Other notable features include: LED lighting, Hikvision camera system and Sonos sound system. Finally, the property has a large roof-top terrace with artificial grass, and a backyard with private patio and pool. View the slideshow below for photos of the property.

Echo Brickell Topping Off!

fullsizerender-18
Echo Brickell
1451 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33131

You may recall this post from nearly two years ago where I first mentioned the ultra-luxury new construction residential tower that is ECHO Brickell.  Well, time flies and this week it’s being reported that they are topping off the building at 57 stories.  In fact, you can watch it for yourself from Echo’s live camera feed on their website, here.  Pretty wild!

To refresh your memory, Echo is situated on the east side of Brickell Avenue, directly adjacent to the Four Seasons (see top image).  Developed by  Property Markets Group (PMG), Echo Brickell is a boutique luxury development with 180 units and 57 stories.  It features conceptual design by world-renowned architect Carlos Ott and interior design by yoo Studio.

Although the building is more than 90% sold out, there are a handful of penthouses remaining, including the $42 million Carlos Ott penthouse.  Other purchase opportunities in the building start at $2 million, with floor plans consisting of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom layouts.

One of the most unique features of Echo is that all units will be delivered “furniture ready” – completely finished!  This is a major difference from the standard “designer ready” model of other buildings where units are delivered with kitchens, baths, and bathroom floors, but are otherwise raw and require finishing, from lighting to paint to baseboards and floors.

Check out the stunning images below to get a feel for Echo’s unique aesthetic and luxurious finishes.  For more information about purchase opportunities at Echo, contact me directly at lrubens@bhsusa.com or 305.799.2124.

Just Rented: Gorgeous Condo at Epic Residences

FullSizeRender_4200 Biscayne Blvd. Way #3905, Miami, FL 33131
1 bedroom/1.5 bathrooms | 950 sq ft | Built in 2008 | Rented for $3,100/month

I just rented this stunning unit at Epic Residences in Downtown Miami.   Epic is a luxury hotel and condo building with 54 stories and 342 units, located just over the bridge that connects Brickell and Downtown Miami.  Epic offers some of the finest amenities and restaurants in Miami, including an Exhale spa and the world-famous Zuma restaurant.

This particular unit was a large 1 bedroom floor plan with 1 full bathroom, a powder room, and 950 square feet of living space. The unit had beautiful finishes including Snaidero cabinetry, stainless steel Miele appliances,
his and her vessel sinks, a 72” x 60” tub/shower, TOTO toilets and bidet, and spacious walk-in closets.  It had sparkling marble floors, custom window shades, an oversize balcony, and of course, that stunning view of Biscayne Bay.   The unit rented for $3,100/month.

My clients had been renting in the building for the last two years and needed to move because their unit was being sold.  They love living at Epic and could not imagine moving elsewhere, a sentiment that seems to be shared with the other residents in the building.
