4 of My Favorite Miami Luxury Buildings

Miami and its’ beaches are no stranger to luxury high rise buildings each boasting better andmore amenities than the next. As a realtor I have had the privilege of any buildings both new and old. I thought it only appropriate to compile a a few of my top picks. When choosing a building its’ important to look at the area that the building is located. Is it in a desirable area? What does the community around this building look like? Let’s face it, whats the point in paying 5 million for a condo that neighbors old rental communities. Moreover, choosing a building with top of the line finishes that are both of quality and craftsmanship are important factors as well.

“Ateliers Jean Nouvel have composed the landscape specifically to complement the architecture. “In the case of Monad Terrace,” Nouvel notes, “it’s not only a building. It’s an object belonging to the landscape, and belonging to a sense of place, and a positive part of the identity of that place.” Curated climbing gardens run along the North and South façades of Monad Terrace. A sheltering cascade of native Bougainvillea, Spanish Moss, Tillandsias, Passion Vine, and other curated species create natural filters and curtains for the terraces behind, bringing the feeling of a living landscape on the North and South sides to the outdoor living area of every residence.”
