One of the relatively newer Miami Beach condos to emerge in the South Beach landscape is Canyon Ranch, a building which opened in 2008. If you know anything about Canyon Ranch, you're probably aware of its unique approach to condo living that's heavily skewed towards improving overall well-being. This is largely a result of the vision of founder Mel Zuckerman.

Canyon Ranch Miami Beach isn't the first building to bear the Canyon Ranch as there are in fact several resort buildings with the name throughout the country. The first of these debuted in Tucson, Arizona and was inspired by Zuckerman's father passing away at age 75, prompting him to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Together with his wife and a business partner, Zuckerman opened another Canyon Ranch in Lenox, Massachusetts before he sort of reinvented the Canyon Ranch name and created one of the most unique Miami Beach condos.

This unconventional approach to condo living has proved successful. Since October of last year, more than forty units within the building have been purchased, making it one of the few Miami Beach condos that have seen considerable success since opening thanks to the location, residential features and lifestyle amenities which include morning fitness classes.
