Summer is behind us, but there is much to look forward to across South Florida’s development projects. There are many brand new condo developments under way, and we are going to share with you some of the most highly anticipated projects to look out for around Miami.
Porshe Design Tower | 57 Floors
Developer : Dezer Development
boasts 60 stories and stands 641 feet high. The pièce de résistance of the tower is the Dezervator, a new and innovative automobile elevator lift system which allows residents to drive their car into their ‘sky garage’ right next to their condo, allowing maximum security and privacy for owners.
Most of the units in the Porsche Design Tower have already been sold with many of the buyers coming from Central and South America.
There are still minor works being undertaken so, according to a spokesperson for Dezer Development, the Porsche Design Tower won’t receive its temporary certificate of occupancy (TCO) until October.
Echo Brickell| 60 Floors
Echo Brickell, located at 1451 Brickell Avenue, is being developed by PMG alongside JDS Development. The project has been designed by architect Carlos Ott who has been collaborating with YOO Studio Design.
The building is still under construction with floors being poured every five days according to a spokesperson for the group. The pool deck was poured last May and a model unit is currently being developed and is almost complete.
Once complete the tower will offer 190 units with a mix of one, two, and three bedroom condos.
