Inside Eighty-Seven Park by Renzo Piano in Surfside, FL.

Eighty-Seven Park by Renzo Piano Tops Off

One of the most unique boutique buildings in Miami Beach, Eighty-Seven Park, has topped off and is slated for completion in 2019.

Designed by the Pritsker Prize-winning Renzo Piano, Eighty-Seven Park will bring a new level of luxury to the Surfside/Bal Harbour area. The building has 18 floors and just 70 residences overlooking the 35-acre North Shore Park and the Atlantic Ocean. It is located on the northernmost lot in Surfside, so is still incredibly close to Bal Harbour. One of the aspects I love most about the building is that residents will enjoy the public park to the south as well as a private park to the north, giving an atmosphere of serenity while still offering all of the services a luxurious building of this caliber should offer. There is no other location in Miami like 8701 Collins, which is where 87 Park earned its name.

Inside the development, residents of 87 Park will enjoy butler service, 24-hour concierge and security, beach service and a program director. There will be an on-site botanist to ensure that the lush greenery in the common areas is curated perfectly depending upon the seasons.

While socializing with the small group of neighbors, residents can enjoy two oceanfront pools with cabanas, on-site salon, wine bar, a business center, and private picnics in the park. The Fugo Bar on-site will offer cold-pressed juices and organic food and each resident will receive a key to the private park just north of the building, similar to the coveted luxury buildings in New York City surrounding Gramercy Park. The private park will be outfitted by the same designers who built Governor’s Island in New York.

Inside the apartments, residents will have floor to ceiling glass walls with sweeping views of the beach and park and telescopic doors that allow the sea breeze to flow through the apartment on beautiful 75-degree winter days. The kitchens are finished with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and buyers have their choice of an array of natural oak plank floorings, or natural stones.

Given that the building is nestled between two parks and the ocean, Mr. Piano has designed the terrace to appear as though they float over the sea & park. Depending upon the layout, some of the terraces even add an additional 75% to the square footage of the home.

As of today, the project is 80% sold with buyers including Michael Huffington, the Conde Nast family and tennis star Novak Djokovic. You can become a neighbor as well. Although the project is nearly sold out, a nice mix of layouts are available including 2 bedroom plans from $3.1 million up to the $45 million multi-level penthouse. Please let us know if you would like to speak about a specific floor plan or view. We are always here to help. In the meantime, you can browse the floorplans here as well as the photos and video below.

Fisher Island Palazzo del Sol Caroline Wozniacki

Fisher Island Condo Welcomes Caroline Wozniacki & David Lee

Could it be that Caroline Wozniacki and David Lee are anticipating the pitter-patter of little athletically-gifted feet in the near future? Judging from the size of their new $13.5 million condo at Palazzo del Sol on exclusive Fisher Island, that certainly could be the case.

The betrothed sports stars have been quiet about when their wedding date may be, but have emerged as the buyers of this 10,000+ square foot opulent new home with 5 full bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and expansive terraces. Over 2,500 square feet of terraces wrap around the apartment, offering six additional outdoor living areas with views of the Biscayne Bay, South Beach, Port of Miami, Miami Skyline as well as the Fisher Island Golf Club.

It may seem presumptuous that we would anticipate little basketball/tennis prodigies so soon, but the famous couple did mention their intentions for a family to Hamptons Magazine in August of this year.

“Looking to the future for me, I hope to be known as not only an athlete but, once I have a family, also as someone who raised her kids to be good people. That would be amazing,” Wozniacki told Hamptons Magazine in an exclusive interview.

Wozniacki has been settled on the island for several years already, enjoying a slew of amenities including both clay and grass tennis courts to practice on. Regarding the tennis courts and the Fisher Island lifestyle, she told Hamptons Magazine, “They named the hard courts after me—that was such a great honor. I love Fisher Island. It’s so safe and there’s so much going on. You see generations that have lived there forever: kids, parents, grandparents. You’re so close to the buzz and the restaurants [of Miami], but at the same time, when you’re there you feel so relaxed and calm. It’s an amazing place. Mostly we stay at home, but if we’re really adventurous, we’ll go to Milos or Soho House. We like the laid-back lifestyle.”

If they do expand their family in the near future, the kids will enjoy a private beach, an aviary with flamingos, parrots, peacocks and all sorts of other tropical birds, a private school and a host of restaurants. Palazzo del Sol, where their new home is located, also has an amazing children’s play area with an indoor treehouse.

On top of being sports pros, it seems the power couple is also skilled in matters of business. They were able to negotiate a discount of over 20% on their purchase. The property had originally been listed for $17.4 Million. Remaining purchase opportunities range from $7.3 million to $20.2 million, depending upon the individual layout of the apartments and individual amenities offered. Some have private rooftop pools, some have private bayfront pools, among other perks. If you would like more specifics, do not hesitate to reach out. We are happy to help.

Fisher Island Miami Beach Private Club

Tour The Exclusive Fisher Island Private Club With CNBC’s “Secret Lives of the Super Rich”

If you have been curious about what exactly makes Fisher Island such an exclusive address aside from the fact that it is routinely on every one of the “Most Expensive Neighborhoods” lists, here is your chance to enjoy a video preview with CNBC’s “The Secret Lives of the Super Rich.” Sissy DeMaria, a resident of the exclusive enclave and island spokesperson allowed camera crews to cross the channel on the Fisher Island Ferry and document much of what the island has to offer.

The tour showcases the opulent Vanderbilt Mansion, once a winter weekend getaway for the famous family that is now the members-only clubhouse with a restaurant, piano bar, billiard area, and private pool. Residents also enjoy a private beach with white sugar sand that is imported from the Bahamas, a beach club, sunset bar, and a hand-rolled sushi bar.

Sports enthusiasts are pleased to see both clay and grass tennis courts as well as a golf course with a separate restaurant that offers a full menu of fresh salads, sandwiches, and a carving board buffet.

In addition to the clubhouse and sports amenities, residents enjoy their own aviary with flamingos, parrots and all sorts of tropical life. The smaller residents can even attend the posh Fisher Island Day School that boasts a lower student-to-teacher ratio than competing schools and high acceptance rates to the highest ranked private high schools in the area.

Residents can access the island via private boat (the marina can accommodate watercraft up to an astounding 200 feet), helicopter or via the ferry. If you access the island as a guest via the ferry, be prepared to answer to strict security because this is one of the highest security neighborhoods in the United States, even with its own patrol house located centrally on the property.

There are only 700 residents on Fisher Island and most consider it their weekend or vacation homes. Some notable neighbors include Oprah Winfrey, Andre Aggasi, and Robert Herjavek among others. Condos are offered for up to $30 million and feature floor plans larger than most any single family home.

If you would like to learn more about individual purchase opportunities including the newly-constructed Palazzo del Sol and Palazzo della Luna, please reach out. We are happy to answer any questions and offer a tour.

Homes for sale in Venetian islands

The Venetian Islands in Miami Beach

The Venetian Islands are a set of islands making up one of the most sought after Miami Beach neighborhoods. Despite being so close to the heart of South Beach, this neighborhood is quite tranquil. From east to west, the islands are as follows: Belle Isle, Rivo Alto Island, Di Lido Island, San Marino Island, San Marco Island, and Biscayne Island. The Venetian Causeway runs through all six islands connecting the islands to the mainland and Miami Beach proper. Located within Biscayne Bay, just off of NE 15th Street and Biscayne Boulevard, this chain of man-made islands grants buyers a serene environment within the hustle and bustle of the vacation capital of the world.

Belle Isle – Venetian Islands

The easternmost barrier island of the chain is Belle Isle. This island is home to a few apartment and condominium buildings, The Standard Hotel Miami Beach, and Belle Isle Park as the central focal point of the island. Belle Island was originally named Bull Isle, but was later renamed. During the early days of Miami Beach, Belle Island was known as the gate way to the beach and had an enclave of sprawling million dollar estates. Over time, Belle Island became how it is today, and is the only island within the chain to house multi-family units.

Rivo Alto Island – Venetian Islands

Rivo Alto Island is situated between Belle Isle and Di Lido Island. This island is home to spectacular waterfront and dry lot Miami Beach homes. Flagler Monument Island, an uninhabited island, is located at the southern tip of the island.

Di Lido Island – Venetian Islands

Di Lido Island is situated between Rivo Alto Island and San Marino Island. This island is home to stunning waterfront and dry lot Miami Beach homes. Residents can see the unfinished remains of another artificial island called Isola di Lolando, which is located at the northern tip of the island and is the remains of the Florida land boom. Recently, Di Lido Island has seen a great deal of remodeling of existing homes and new construction of homes.

San Marino Island – Venetian Islands

San Marino Island is situated between Di Lido Island and San Marco Island. This island is home to gorgeous waterfront and dry lot Miami Beach estates. San Marino Island is one of the mid-point islands, and offers spectacular wide bay views, and fascinating views of both the mainland and the beach.

San Marco Island – Venetian Islands

San Marco Island is situated between San Marino Island and Biscayne Island. This island is home to luxurious waterfront and dry lot Miami Beach estates. Due to its central location between the mainland and the beach, this island offers a great deal of privacy.

Biscayne Island – Venetian Islands

Biscayne Island is situated between San Marco Island and mainland Miami. This island is home to a handful of waterfront and dry lot Miami Beach homes, as well as a few apartment buildings.
