Miami Beach, and most especially South Beach's South of Fifth neighborhood, has become one of the most sought-after places to live in the world. Recognizing this, the city of Miami Beach planned a multi-million dollar renovation of South Pointe Park, which was completed in 2009. This extensive renovation included a completely new landscape with a variety of vegetation, Palm Trees, walkways, a multicolored nighttime light display along Government Cut, underground water fountains, the creation of elevated sand dunes, party facilities, and even a children's playground! Additionally, a new Pier was constructed where you can walk out several hundred feet to truly experience the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean.

South Pointe Park is surrounded by the several luxury condominium buildings - The Continuum South Beach, Apogee, The Portofino Tower, The South Pointe Tower, and The Murano at Portofino. These residents can often be spotted taking advantage of the Park's restored beauty and vibrant atmosphere. After an 18 month period of extensive renovations, South Pointe Park reopened in 2009 and has turned into a local gathering spot, being a great place to socialize and get to know the local "South of Fifth" community.

Top Ten Things to do in South Pointe Park:

  • 1. Jog or walk through the many trails and paths- especially at night to see the multicolored light show along the Intracoastal Waterway
  • 2. Bring a Yoga Mat and attend one of the free morning and evening yoga classes sponsored by various local fitness centers
  • 3. Watch incredible sunrises and sunsets from atop "South Pointe Hill" (located on East side)
  • 4. SOCIALIZE with the many locals who bring their dogs to the Park for morning and evening walks. A little known fact is that many locals organize regular get-togethers for other dog owners
  • 5. Watch the amazing sight of cruise ships leaving the Port of Miami around 5pm Friday - Sunday (especially in High Season)
  • 6. Take a day trip to the Beach, the park has several beach access paths on the Eastern Side
  • 7. Bring your kids, nieces, nephews, and any other young adult to play in the water fountains next to Government Cut
  • 8. Go to Smith & Wollensky steakhouse INSIDE the Park- Tip: sit on the second floor for an amazing view of Fisher Island, the Ocean, and the downtown Miami skyline
  • 9. Enjoy the party facilities located on the ground floor- these were built by the city as part of the recent renovations to the entire park
  • 10. Celebrity watch! Recently, I spotted Gloria Estefan, Rosie O'Donnell and their families enjoying a spectacular sunset

Despite the recent financial turbulance in Europe, we're continuing to see strong buyer demand especially from Eastern & Northern European countries. For example, at The Bentley Bay- A two story Penthouse with private rooftop pool sold at a private auction held late last year (part of a three unit sale). Despite the Bentley Bay's troubled history and high maintenance fees (currently at $1.19/SF), this is a boutique entry-level luxury waterfront condominium located just North of Miami Beach's "South of Fifth" Neighborhood. The Bentley Bay features spectacular Bayfront and Atlantic Ocean views, with views directly overlooking Star Island and the Downtown Miami skyline. A Finnish buyer acquired Bentley Bay condominiums #601, #701 and Penthouse 01 for just under $3,000,000 ($345 per square foot of living space) in a private auction sale last year. I find it especially interesting that this is a POSITIVE cash flow investment due to the significant rental income that the Bentley Bay commands- while the overall luxury condominium market in Miami Beach continues a steady rebound from the lows witnessed last year.

Also, most recently ANOTHER Finnish buyer acquired one of the most luxurious Penthouses at the Setai South Beach for $15,000,000 ($2,416 per square foot of living space) last week. It should be noted that this Penthouse was on the market since 2006, significantly reduced from $34M earlier this year. The asking price was $19.9M. This 4bed/4bath Penthouse also has a private rooftop pool and panoramic views of the Ocean, the City of Miami Beach and the Downtown Miami skyline.

The Continuum South Tower condominium building, located in Miami Beach's South of Fifth neighborhood, was completed in late 2001. Conceived by New York developer Bruce Eichner in the late 1990's, this property is truly one of the most sought-after luxury oceanfront condo buildings IN THE WORLD! A little known fact- the 12 acres of land on which the Contiuum South Beach is located was once considered sacred land by an Indian tribe of Florida. Quite possibly, this is due to the unique location at the southeasternmost tip of Miami Beach directly across from Fisher Island. To experience the Continuum in person is truly a special experience, from the moment you arrive on this 12 acre oceanfront property at the Southeastern most tip of South Beach!

The South Tower of Continuum is located on premier southern end of the of master condomimium association consisting of the Continuum North and South Towers, located at 50 South Pointe Drive and 100 South Pointe Drive respectively. This Miami Beach address is recognized around the world as being among the most prestigious real estate. I have been selling luxury condominiums in Miami Beach since 1998, and since The Continuum started pre-sales around that time, this is THE premier condomium property to bring my most selective and affluent buyers. Also, personally, this is my favorite building in all of Miami Beach.
