For some, the crucial factor holding them back from buying Miami Beach condos is the tough economic situation that some have had to deal with, particularly newer condominium buildings that emerged when the real estate market was in trouble. If you’re among these people and are looking for an upscale place to call home, consider the La Gorce Palace.

Built in 1996, the La Gorce Palace could be considered among the Miami Beach condos that are now deemed classic but it still manages to retain every bit of the luxurious appeal it earned back when it first opened. Located on popular Collins Avenue, it’s easily identifiable by its dark blue column of windows that run up along the 34 stories comprising the building. While the building may not throw in every possible amenity that some newer buildings insist on nowadays, it still manages to have private access to the sands of Miami Beach itself as well as an entertainment area complete with a billiards table and a bar.

The residences of La Gorce Palace also have all of the features found in modern Miami Beach condos like nine foot ceilings, gorgeous ocean views from the large balconies, and granite kitchen countertops. Combined with its excellent location, the appropriately named La Gorce Palace ensures that you can enjoy the Miami Beach lifestyle for less than what you would pay for a brand new condo.
