Miami’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: April 2022
May 11, 2022 May 11, 2022
It’s no secret that Miami’s luxury condo market is red hot and shows no signs of slowing! This April, we saw some of the biggest hospitality brands launch sales of new projects – namely NoMad, Cipriani, and Turnberry. Developers PMG not only proposed to build two new residential towers in Brickell but launched sales of their rental Society Biscayne apartments as condos, and is expected to be move-in ready this summer. Also, District 225 and La Baia were 100% sold out before breaking ground.
Miami developers again went bullish on assemblage sites and bulk condo buyouts this month. We had Two Roads, Related & Rockpoint join hands to buy out the Carlton Terrace condos in Bal Harbour. Two Roads Development decided to go solo in buying out Edgewater’s Biscayne 21. And, Torres Properties bought out the entire Adagio building in North Bay Village.

April 2022 - Miami Condo Pre-Construction Update: Watchlist
Condo project by JMH Development – Mid-Beach
After being stalled for 5 long years due to litigation, Jason Halpern’s JMH Development can finally move forward with its condo plans for 2901 and 2911 Indian Creek Drive. The 17,150-square-foot property was originally planned to hold a 7-story building with 22 condo units and a rooftop pool. In the months ahead, we will be keeping an eye on whether the New York-based developer sticks to its original plans or revives the project with new details.
Biscayne 21 Bulk Buyout – Edgewater
With plans to build a 3-tower luxury condo complex, Two Roads Development is in the process of buying out Biscayne 21. The developer expects to close the bulk buyout deal within the month of May with an average price of $1 million per unit. The bayfront mid-rise was built in the 1960s on a peninsular in Edgewater. The 11-story vintage building is currently home to 191 condos.
Opposite Margaret Pace Park, at 2121 North Bayshore Drive developer Two Roads plans to build a very high-end luxury product on the 3.4-acre waterfront site – likely powered by a well-known brand. The new three-tower complex is expected to hold about 680 to 750 residential units in 60-story skyscrapers. The gated mid-rise currently features a lap pool, tennis courts, BBQ facilities, a penthouse recreation room, and two exposures with unobstructed water views.
Carlton Terrace Condo Buy-out – Bal Harbour
Miami’s Related Group has joined forces with West Palm Beach-based Two Roads Development and Boston-based Rockpoint to buy out the 88-unit Carlton Terrace. 81 units of the 15-story building have already been purchased for a combined cost of $114.74 million. We’ll be keeping a close watch as developers are yet to reveal redevelopment plans for the oceanfront property.
Waterfront Site with Plans for 1,049-Foot, Norman Foster-Designed Tower Sells – Brickell
Developer Florida East Coast Realty sold its 2.5-acre waterfront development site for a record $363 million. Purchased in 2000 for $15.5 million, the 2.5-acre Brickell site registered a 2,242% appreciation. The transaction aced the previous record set by the $236 million sale of the Miami Herald site in Downtown Miami (now owned by Genting Group for the Miami World Resorts project).
An entity managed by Chicago-based Randall Davis is the buyer of the Brickell site. The waterfront site at 1201 Brickell Bay Drive was intended to feature a 660-unit, 1,049-foot supertall condo tower designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Norman Foster of Foster + Partners. We’ll be keeping a watch on whether the Chicago-based firm decides to move forward with the original plans or reveals a new design for one of the last waterfront sites in Brickell.
42-story Miami Station Tower Site for Sale – Downtown Miami
The 1-acre, shovel-ready site adjacent to the Brightline Station is up for sale. Located at 533 NW 2nd Ave, the site was scheduled to hold the 42-story Miami Station rental tower. The 1-acre parcel is approved to rise 539 feet above ground with 301 multifamily rental units, 247,322 square feet of office space, 5,951 square feet of ground-floor retail, and 6 floors of parking. We’re keeping this prime spot under our watchlist as several developers have chosen to convert their rental buildings into condos, given the insatiable demand for luxury housing in Miami.
FAA-approved Residential Tower by AIMCO – Edgewater
Approved by the Federal Aviation Administration, developer Hamilton on the Bay II, LLC will now be able to build a 645-foot residential tower at 640 Northeast 34 Street in Edgewater. The developer, with a Denver address, is said to be an affiliate of Aimco.
The developer is also pushing for approval of a second tower next door, set to rise 497 feet above ground. This would help the developer go through with its plans to build a two-tower residential complex at the waterfront site. The developer also needs approvals to create a public plaza on the site by closing off 34th Street. The project makes our watchlist as several developers have opted to build luxury condo offerings in Miami, given the highly lucrative market for such housing product.
Adagio Condominium – North Bay Village
The entire Adagio condo building was sold to the founders of Torres Properties from Vancouver, Washington for $17 million. The sale equated to a price of $1.13 million per unit. For now, the waterfront condo building will continue to operate as a short-term rental, as it is under a 5-year lease with Sextant Stays. The 15-unit building features a pool, fitness center, and sauna. The deal makes it to our watchlist since developers have been aggressively buying out condo buildings, especially waterfront, to make room for newer, more luxurious condo offerings, and the Adagio checks all the boxes for redevelopment.
