Philly steak omelette gives place for first Sunny Isles Beach new construction on West side of Collins

Sunny Isles new construction West side

Philly steak omelette gives place for first Sunny Isles Beach new construction on West side of Collins

For decades, tourists crossed Collins in shorts and sun huts from the beachside motels to Denny’s for breakfast or lunch. But, as the oceanside of Collins Ave has changed into ultra luxury new construction, the new residents are more interested in oysters and other delicacies than in 2000 calorie cheap meals. It was just a matter of time before such a valuable piece of land turned omelettes into 1 million dollar condos.

The Verzasca group will build a 19 story luxury tower with a slightly lower price point considering buyers will have to cross the street to enjoy the ocean so instead of $1,500 a foot, they are planning on selling the 76 units at $1,000 a foot. Architect Luis Revuelta is in charge of wowing us with the design.

It’s a matter of time before the trend extends as a tsunami washing away other sites on the West side to bring more luxury towers and high end retail. Its hard to imagine that the residents of a $5 million condo will be interested in buy one get one free at Payless Shoes.

With the walkable trend growing fast in Miami, the composition of the whole are is destined to change. Sunny Isles is in serious need of fancier office space, high end retail and restaurants to cater to the new high caliber population. Even though Sunny Isles Beach new construction is right between Bal Harbor shops and Aventura Mall, traffic is a nightmare that requires some good relaxation music and deep breathing. Walking across the street for some last minute urgent Louboutin shoes would be a much welcome change for the new crowd.  A new Design District across from the ocean would be a better match, the question is, who will be the visionary starting it?

Condo sales in Miami level while homes go up

Condo Sales in Miami level while homes go up:

Condo sales in Miami and the tri- county area (Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach) are leveling and that is a good thing. We have all suffered “the morning after” crash to reality after the hipe of the real estate party years ago when the market collapsed. What seemed an unstoppable train of rising prices and flipping frenzy turned into a panicky stop. Now, after the painful recovery, it seems we have all learned a thing or two. At least the market is saying so with numbers and stats. We have come a long way in the recovery and prices are getting to pre-bubble times but this time around catching the breath and slowing into a normal healthy level. Healthy enough to allow appreciation and avoid flipping madness.

There were 3,371 condo sales in Miami and tri-county area in February, up from 3,142 sales in January and up 0.1 percent compared to same period in 2014. The median price, however, was up 4 percent year-over-year to $145,750. Now remember these figures encompass all of the tri-county area from hot Brickell to areas like Homestead or Lantana so don’t expect to find an oceanfront condo in Sunny Isles Beach at this price (though we can find you some pretty good deals).

Single family home sales in the tri-county area went up 17.9% from last year and median price in January was $260,000 which means homes are catching up to condo sales in Miami. This is an indication of organic growth of the local market (condo sales in Miami are a mix of vacation, investment and permanent use while homes tend to be mostly permanent).

If you are a runner, you know that you can train your endurance and run a little further every week, but if you don’t level at some point you will eventually hurt yourself and come to a painful stop. It looks like condo sales in Miami have finally learned the proper care for a healthy long run.
