Miami Real Estyle: Trending Homes in Miami

By Angela Betancourt

As Miami’s economic landscape continues to improve, developers are not wasting any time building elaborate projects that have put the city in the global spotlight. World renowned architects, designers, and famous brands, have been sought to create some of the most luxurious homes and condos Miami has ever seen. Among the list of lavish and opulent residences are Paraiso Bayviews, The Surf Club Four Seasons, and Casa Playa; all of which are setting a new standard for luxury living in Miami.


Located just 15 minutes north of The Four Seasons Surf Club is Casa Playa, the single-family mansion and private oceanfront retreat, in the prestigious Golden Beach neighborhood. Miami Golden, the developer behind Casa Playa recently held a private event for prospective buyers to get a glimpse of the home being built at 699 Ocean Boulevard.

When complete, Casa Playa will have an impressive 8 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, access to a private beach, 6,000 square feet of terraces, 5,000-square foot home spa and fitness level, a home theater, a lap pool with a waterfall, a safe room, and numerous spa pools. A drawing room with a hidden staircase and staff quarters with a separate entrance are just a few additional highlights. The home is currently on the market for a staggering $36 million.

One of the most important things to note about this property is its green factor. Casa Playa was designed by Chad Oppenheim who is known within the industry for his socially and environmentally conscious architecture. The temperature-controlled retreat has an energy-efficient green rooftop and a three story exterior ecowall that will feature 25 different plant species growing around a spiral staircase.

Across the bay in Surfside, the Miami-based private real estate investment company Fort Capital, has joined forces with the Four Seasons to develop The Surf Club Four Seasons Hotel & Residences. Located at 9011 Collins Avenue, The Surf Club Four Seasons is a luxury residential and hotel development project currently under construction on nine acres of ocean front property.

The development is preserving the landmark Surf Club, which was designed by Russell Pancoast in the 1930s. For the past 80 years, the club’s old world charm and glamorous interior made it one of the most exclusive clubs in Miami Beach. Architect Richard Meier, a Pritzker Prize winner, is embracing that history as he creates modern new additions. When the building is complete, there will be two transparent 12 story residential towers, a private membership club, two restaurants, four swimming pools, a state-of-the-art spa and fi tness center, more than 40 beach cabanas, and an expansive park and ocean-side gardens.

The residences comprise 157 homes, including 12 penthouses with incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean and Downtown. The units will range in size from 1,800 to 7,800 square feet with floor to ceiling glass walls and up to twenty-foot-high ceilings. The smooth “lift and glide” terrace doors lead residents to large terraces and uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Select rooftop residences have private swimming pools, atriums with private indoor courtyards, and outdoor showers and kitchens.

Though all the units are being constructed with exceptional quality, the 12 penthouses are distinguished by their extraordinary design. They range in size from, 5,400 to 7,500 square feet with a vast amount of private outdoor entertaining and recreational areas. Rooftop gardens, private swimming pools, outdoor living and dining rooms, and private beachfront cabanas are just some of the extra perks.

50 years ago, the Edgewater community, which begins just north of the Omni, was a vibrant neighborhood until it came into hard times in the 1990’s. Today, the neighborhood has found a new identity and has become a hot commodity for real estate.

Paraiso Bayviews is the latest addition to Edgewater’s new luxury Paraiso Bay compound, a high-end development project being built by The Related Group. This building and its sister towers are credited for helping infuse new life in the Edgewater area and has become an attractive option for buyers looking for a resort-style environment.

In a city dominated by million dollar condos, Paraiso Bayviews is garnering a lot of attention for its affordable prices which start at $340K. However, there are no sacrifices in amenities. Boasting 44 stories and 396 units, the building has a very contemporary architectural design that’s showcased throughout the property. There are lush gardens, outdoor lounge areas, and marina and boat slips.

In addition to an onsite restaurant managed by chef Michael Schwartz, residents will also enjoy a private theater, fi tness center, rooftop pool, a tennis court, and much more; all with 1,000 feet of Biscayne Bay waterfront as the backdrop. Each unit is move-in ready and showcases nine foot ceilings, spacious terraces, floor to ceiling resistant glass panels, and modern appliance packages.

The project’s international interior and industrial designer Karim Rashid is recognized as one of the most important industrial designers of our time and evolved his trademark colors and bold shapes for a softer more natural approach to the project.
