Notable New Construction Sales in Center Grove – November 2018


3220 Matilda St., Miami, FL 33133
3 beds/3.5 baths | 3,300 sq ft | built in 2018 | sold for $1,265,890 on 11/9/18

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.

Market Update: Center Coconut Grove Townhouses

photo

3069/3071 Orange Street

As you’re probably well aware by now, I’m a big fan (and new resident of!!) Center Coconut Grove.  I’ve written a lot about the high demand in the neighborhood and the new construction going up in the area (see here and here).  It’s been about 6 months since my last market update, so let’s take a look at what’s been cookin’!

For this market report, I only looked at properties with 3 bedrooms or more and all data was taken from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).  The current inventory includes 29 properties with prices ranging from $489,000 to $769,000, and the asking price per square foot ranges between $225 and $416. (I’ve excluded a property on Day Av. that is being sold with both units in the structure for $900,000).

As for closed sales in 2014, there have been 65.  The lowest priced sale this year was an older property from 1983 that needed loads of remodeling.  The property’s address is 2974 Bridgeport Ave. #2, and it sold for $281,000 ($160.57/sf) on 6/24/14.  The highest priced sale this year was 3191 Ohio St. which sold for $920,000 on 7/24/14 (however, that sale included both units in the structure so it should not be used as a comparable property).  The next highest sale was 3187 Lamb Ct., which sold for $775,000 ($334/sf) on 6/16/14.

There are 11 sales currently pending, 4 of which are new construction properties on Orange St. and Day Av.  The asking prices for these properties range from $689,900 to $789,900.  The photo at the top of this post shows the completed new construction properties at 3069 and 3071 Orange St., which are now both under contract.

Take a look at all of the data below, and contact me directly at lindsayrubens@avatarflorida.com or 305.799.2124 for more info on buying or selling a home in Center Grove or the surrounding neighborhoods.

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:

Miami New Construction Spotlight – Reach Brickell City Centre

Project Exterior Night (1) Reach Brickell City Centre 68 SE 6 St., Miami, FL 33131

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last year, you’ve probably heard a lot of hype about the mega project that is Brickell City Centre.   This $1.05 billion mixed-use development by Swire Properties  is the single largest project currently underway in Downtown Miami, which will consist of  a 565,000 square-foot shopping center, 128,580 square feet of offices, a 131,651 square-foot wellness center, 790 condominiums in two towers (“Reach” and “Rise”), 263 hotel rooms, 89 serviced apartments, and 2,600 parking spaces above and below ground.

Currently, only one of the two condo towers has been released for sale: Reach Brickell City Centre.  I had the opportunity to tour the sales office yesterday and hear from the sales team about this exciting new project.  Designed by internationally acclaimed Arquitectonica, Reach will consist of 43 stories with 383 luxury condominiums, and floor plans ranging from 1-4 bedrooms.

The building models were beautiful and incredibly detailed; read on for photos and more info on Reach Brickell City Centre.
