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.

New Details on Park Grove via the Miami Herald

ParkGrove_Brochure31

Coincidentally, the Miami Herald ran an article on Park Grove shortly after my blog post yesterday.    The article reveals new details on the 5.2 acre project, including that the two 20-story bayfront towers (Tower 1 and 2) will each have 72 units, and that the third tower (also 20-stories) will have 140 smaller units toward the rear of the property.   The bayfront towers will have floor-to-ceiling glass exterior walls with 12-foot ceilings, and the rear tower (Tower 3) will have 10-foot ceilings.

The Herald also reports that only one of the two bayfront towers is open for reservations, and about 30 percent of the units have sold since May.  The rear tower, which began taking reservations three weeks ago, is about 20 percent sold.   Construction is expected to begin early next year.  As for prices, the bayfront tower currently for sale is priced in excess of $1,000 per square foot, ranging from about $2.1 million for a 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath unit to about $4.6 million for a 4-bedroom, 5 1/2-bath unit, excluding penthouses.  Tower 3, which will have smaller units, is about $900 a square foot.

The project also includes a scheduled “major public-private makeover” of the waterfront, a new park, as well as a 50,000-square-foot “retail village” at the rear of the property by Mary Street and Tigertail Avenue.  It is also reported that the project will include a variety of artwork, notably a sculpture installation by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa that will be displayed in front of the development.
