1060 Brickell Ave. #2505
1 bedroom/1.5 baths | 963 sf of living space | Offered for rent at $2,350/month

I just listed this gorgeous 1 bedroom/1.5 bathroom rental in 1060 Brickell!   This unit is located in the “05 line” on the 25th floor, which overlooks Brickell Ave. and boasts beautiful water views.  It is one of the largest 1-bedroom floor plans in the building and has 963 square feet of living space.  The unit is being offered at $2,350 per month.

The unit is in impeccable condition and includes the following features:

  • Sparkling white porcelain tile floors throughout the living areas and bedroom, and marble floors in the bathrooms.
  • Hurricane impact glass windows and doors.
  • Large terrace with plenty of room for al-fresco dining, and the balcony floor is also tiled.
  • The interior layout includes a dining area off of the kitchen as well as a powder room for your guests.
  • Spacious living room has sheer shades on the sliding glass doors, and is large enough for a designated office area.
  • Kitchen has generous counter space and features stainless steel Bosch appliances, granite countertops, and European cabinets, as well as a laundry closet with stackable washer/dryer and extra storage.
  • Master bedroom has a nice-sized walk-in closet with shelving as well as custom blackout shades.
  • Master bathroom has marble floors and countertops, a marble-tiled shower wall, and the shower has a tub with a glass door enclosure.
  • Rental payment includes 1 assigned parking space in the garage, water/sewer and garbage, as well as basic cable.

Although I may be biased because I lived in the building for 3 years, 1060 Brickell is my favorite building in Brickell! It’s a newer building, completed in 2008, and consists of two towers (1050 and 1060), for a total of 570 units. The building has a beautiful pool and gym, complete with a yoga/aerobics room, steam rooms, showers and locker rooms. Unique amenities include a virtual golf room featuring an indoor golf simulator, Wine/Cigar lounge outfitted with temperature-controlled wine and storage cabinets and personal humidors for cigars, and a game room with a billiards table. The building has 24 hour doorman security, 24 hour valet parking, as well as ground-floor and mezzanine level retail and restaurants.  Best of all is the location – with Mary Brickell Village and the Metromover in your backyard, you can leave your car in the garage all weekend – no driving necessary!

Paramount Bay is a luxury, waterfront building located in the Edgewater neighborhood, just north of Downtown Miami.   Completed in 2011, Paramount Bay was developed by Royal Palm Communities and designed by world-renowned architectural firm, Arquitectonica.  The building is all-glass and has 47-stories with 346 units.

Residents love Paramount Bay for its beautiful design (the common areas were designed by Lenny Kravitz!), amazing amenities, first class service, and endless water views.  But one of the best features of Paramount Bay is its location.  Situated at 20th St. and N. Bayshore Drive, the building is positioned between entrances to I-195 and I-395, providing easy access to Miami Beach and the Miami Airport.  It’s also just minutes from Downtown Miami, Midtown Miami, Wynwood and the Design District.  If you’re a visual person like me, check out the map below (the star marks Paramount Bay).

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.

Under $500k: Luxury Living at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Coconut Grove

A1964557_301_15The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Coconut Grove
3350 SW 27 Ave., #1603
1 bedroom/1 bathroom/1 half bath | 896 sf | $499,000

After a bit of a hiatus, Under $500k is back! – and this week, I’m featuring a modern and bright 1 bedroom unit at The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Coconut Grove.  Tucked away in the heart of Coconut Grove just off of Bayshore Drive, these Ritz-Carlton residences are located in one of Miami’s most exclusive neighborhoods surrounded by nearly two acres of lush tropical gardens and views of Biscayne Bay.  Built in 2002, the property consists of 2 towers (one for hotel guests, another for residents), and the residents’ tower has 22 floors with 115 units.  Residents can enjoy the hotel’s premier amenities, such as a state-of-the-art spa and fitness center, luxurious pool, valet and concierge services, as well as the hotel’s cafe and fine dining.  It’s also worth noting (for all of your dog lovers – like me!) that the Residences are pet-friendly.

The property I am showcasing  is #1603 and it has 1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom and 1 half bathroom.  It has just under 900 square feet and is listed for $499,000 ($554/sf). The property is listed by Mitzi Mitchell of Cervera Real Estate.  The unit features beautiful modern finishes including beige marble floors throughout with Venetian plaster walls. It has a large balcony overlooking sailboats on the bay and a sparkling city skyline at night.  The spacious master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a luxurious en-suite master bathroom with dual sinks, a bath tub, glass-enclosed shower, and ample cabinetry.  The kitchen is light and bright with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, and the powder room is a great added bonus for entertaining.

One of my favorite parts about this property is all the gorgeous light fixtures.  While recently decorating my new house, I became obsessed with light fixtures – they’re an easy way to make a dramatic change in a space.  I’ve counted three sparkling light fixtures throughout this property – one in the kitchen, and one in each bathroom.  They are super chic and provide the perfect touch of luxury!  Scroll down to see all the photos, as well as recent sales activity in the building:
