Ocean House Miami Beach Has Special Appeal
Ocean House Miami Beach has a special meaning for me. Nearly a decade ago, I supervised the pre-construction sales platform for this ultra-luxurious development that sits on the sand in the prestigious South of Fifth neighborhood of Miami Beach. In the various development meetings, the unit-mix and overall brand identity for the project were discussed at length. The developer, Michael Samuel, in the end, made the decision to go big. The name South of Fifth was born for this project, giving tribute to this outstanding up-and-coming area. Later the name was changed for legal reasons to the current name.
Going big meant creating and designing a concept of massive floor plans with the best and most expensive finishes for the condos within the project. Developers always take a good look at what level of finishes to build for the kitchens and bathrooms and analyze it against construction costs vs projected upside of what the units will sell for. In this case, we shot for the moon. And now, ten years later, Ocean House Miami Beach is still providing great value at the top of the market with recent sales this year of $3,592 and $3,844 per square foot. Those numbers are astounding when compared to the condo sales at the Continuum that I have recently discussed.
Amazing Beach Life
The incredible draw of Ocean House Miami Beach is the location on the sand. Residents can walk out of their incredible homes; check out the amazing pool area and head down to one of the best beaches in the world. Within the South of Fifth area, there are very limited options for large luxury condos in an oceanfront development. 321 Oceanis a new kid on the block that is coming soon, and aside from the Continuum, Ocean House Miami Beach is really the best option for those that crave the sand and gentle crashing waves.
