Bringing Resort Amenities to Condo Living
- Apr 30, 2015
Miami—Vertical construction has begun on East Edgewater’s newest luxury condominium, Biscayne Beach, a 51-story, 399-unit waterfront tower located at 711 NE 29th St., along Biscayne Bay in Florida.
Biscayne Beach is the brainchild of Eastview Development, a South Florida-based real estate development firm with projects across the country, including condominium and multifamily developments in Florida, as well as office and multifamily projects in New York.
“Biscayne Beach’s resort-like amenities and unobstructed views are all available at surprising prices for waterfront property, which is increasingly difficult to find in this cosmopolitan city,” Reid Boren, a partner of Eastview Development, told MHN. “Joining Eastview is New York-based GTIS Partners, a global real estate investment firm with more than $2.3 billion in assets throughout the U.S. and Brazil.”
The chief amenity of Biscayne Beach will be the private beach, with 335 linear feet of land directly facing the waters of Biscayne Bay. The tower’s members-only Beach Club will include an elevated sandy beach with private cabanas, zero-entry pool, daytime concierge services, as well as a renowned restaurant and bar.
“All of these features will be set against the backdrop of sweeping bay views, with a public bay walk providing access to the water—complete with bay-side piers for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and more,” Boren said.
Additional resort-style amenities include a sixth-floor Owners’ Level featuring an indoor/outdoor great room with a library, billiards table and an outdoor summer kitchen and lounge area; a residents-only pool and hot tub area; state-of-the-art fitness center overlooking the bay and Beach Club area; and spa facilities complete with a sauna, steam room, blow-dry bar and massage treatment rooms.
According to Boren, Miami’s standing as a center for international business, shopping and leisure has fueled the resurgence of its real estate market beyond that of most cities in the United States.
“For Biscayne Beach, we have tapped the most talented industry leaders to help us deliver a development that draws upon the best elements of the beach and city while appealing to a global clientele,” he said. “Miami’s East Edgewater is one of the City’s most vibrant neighborhoods, centrally-located near key employment centers, cultural and entertainment outlets, shopping and dining destinations, and transportation links.”
The project is expected to be completed in 2016.
