It is looking like a dusty winter season in Miami, with all the construction rapidly underway, cranes are a common site in the Magic City. The power houses of Miami real estate have been hard at work and are bringing developments to all areas of town. From the beaches to Midtown and Downtown everything is being transformed before our eyes. Some of the developers that are making an enormous impact are Related Group, Faena Group, and Swire Properties. The skyline of Miami will be completely altered in the coming years and here are some of the projects making waves.

Faena Group is introducing Faena House, a condominium and residential wonderland in Miami Beach. It is a bit north of South Beach, with uncrowded beaches, yet close to it all, with top of the line amenities. Related Group is transforming Brickell with Millecento, MyBrickell, Plaza Miami, and SLS Hotel and Residences. Each of these projects will be the height of luxury and represent the latest in design and modern elements that have made Related so popular amongst the elite. Lastly, Swire Properties is the biggest contributor with Brickell CityCentre. This 3 full city block development will have 5 towers, a hotel, residences, and a mall. It will cost in the billions and bring work and revenue to Brickell and create a true urban center. For information on pre-construction pricing call us today.

It could not be a better time for a homeowner to list their home for sale in Miami. The market is very constricted and home prices are at the highest they have been in over 6 years.  In order to get the most value of their homes, many homeowners make improvements before listing their home. Some improvements are well worth the value, while others are not worth the investment. We would like to give you some home improvement guidelines for resale purposes, and when you are ready to list your home, contact us for a free market analysis.

Know your Buyer: Certain improvements, such as painting rooms neutral colors always pleases a wide audience, however an improvement such as a pool or other large projects that alter the property can detract from the property. While pools may seem like a wise idea in the Miami heat, they are costly to maintain and hazardous with children.

Room to Grow: Additions are very costly and if you are looking for strict resale purposes to add square feet, this rarely yields increases in price. The alteration to the original floorplan can often detract from your home, not to mention that permiting requires more effort than it may be worth.

Improve The Right Way: Making improvements to the appliances or cabinetry will give your home a competitive edge, but be sure not to over improve. If you are looking to sell your home in the next year, purchasing a Sub Zero refrigerator is not going to help your home inch up in price. This overimprovement may not make much difference.

The Melo Group of developers acquired 601 NE 23rd St last year and have conceived of 23 Biscayne. This 17 storie 96 unit project will be among the over 60 new developments planned for South Florida and there is no sign of this trend slowing. The inventory has shrunken to the point that these preconstruction condominiums are often selling out close to ground breaking. 23 Biscayne will likely have similar results, especially considering its’ location. In the heart of downtown with access to the Miami International Airport and South Beach, as well as the financial district, this location cannot be compared. Many will appreciate the simplicity of the lines and classic Miami feel.

The amenities of this project will be in line with others in the neighborhood. All residences are pre wired for cable and internet and have energy efficient and impact resistant windows. They will have top of the line stainless steel kitchens with European cabinetry and polished marble countertops. The floorplans will be flow through and focal points will be the views of the Biscayne Bay. Building amenities will include an oversize rooftop pool, state of the art fitness facility, 24 hour security, social room for entertaining, and storage space. For more information on preconstruction pricing, please contact us today. This opportunity will not last.

Miami Spice is a program whereby most of the restaurants in the city encourage people to beat the heat and dine on some of the best food Miami has to offer at a fraction of the price. Each restaurant has a set menu of a number of courses from 33-39 for dinner and 19-21 for lunch. Restuarants participate largely to showcase new menu items or expose their brand to a larger audience. In many instances, meals of this caliber would run from 100 per person, so this is an amazing opportunity to discover what Miami has cooking. The Spice menus run from August to September. Happy Eating and enjoy our guide to the top 5 Spice restaurants.

Located in the trendy and new SLS Hotel, this is the brainchild of culinary mastermind Jose Andres. The dining is tapas style and you choose 3 of the 18 dishes. The most famous are the cheese plate, ham croquettes, and mussels.

The Dutch

Located in the W Hotel, The Dutch has been a hot spot since last year and continues to be a place to go and be seen. We recommend the arugula salad, octopus, and short ribs.

Khong River House

This Thai and Vietnamese fusion restaurant just opened in 2013 and is already a big hit amongst locals. It is located just off of Lincoln Road and is perfect for dining then taking a walk. We recommend boat noodles, Thai steak salad, and Thai donuts.
