321 Ocean Beautiful and Ready Soon
321 Ocean, the new boutique oceanfront condo development in the South of Fifth neighborhood of Miami Beach, has recently been topped off. Developer, Aria Development Group, has hired the renowned luxury builder, Coastal Construction, to build their project, and for all intents and purposes, it appears that this partnership is going quite well. Personally, I am a big fan of Coastal Construction; the Murphy Family not only excels at building with the absolute highest quality construction, they deliver as promised – time and time again.
The topping off of the building is great news for the buyers of 321 Ocean condos. The development has been scheduled for delivery for the first quarter of 2015. At first, I thought that the date might be a bit overly ambitious, but now I do believe that they are on track. Consequently, 321 Ocean should now be the first new South of Fifth pre-construction condo developments out of the Big Four (Marea, One Ocean, Glass, 321 Ocean) to be ready for occupancy.
321 Ocean Starchitect Power
The 321 Ocean Development Team has made a good move in bringing on starchitect Enrique Norten from TEN Arquitectos to design a hyper-modernist marvel of a building. Yes, I did say starchitect, funny word, but it’s the latest craze to define the branding horsepower that a celebrity architect can bring into a project. Affluent buyers simply place more trust into the brand equity built into the designs of the IT architecture firms. And in the case of 321 Ocean, TEN Arquitectos has delivered some stunning designs for these South Beach condos.
Steps Away from the Ocean
Formerly the site of the historic art deco Simone Hotel, the two low-rise luxury condo buildings of 321 Ocean will be a welcome addition to South of Fifth real estate – encompassing 9 stories and only 22 units in total. The development stands out as a new ‘on the sand’ project for the area, which is an incredibly desirable feature. Owners of 321 Ocean condos will awaken to the calming waves of the Atlantic Ocean, while still being steps away from the incredible social life of South Beach.
321 Ocean condos possess 10 foot deep oceanfront terraces as wonderful features that take advantage of the prime location. The buildings will have an elevated courtyard in-between one another for easy connection between the amenities and structures. Residents of these sought-after luxury condos will be privy to a number of amenities such as triple exposure homes, private elevator lobbies, a fitness center, and floor-to-ceiling glass. Designed with a European plan in mind, the sleek kitchens will be open and will offer European cabinetry, appliances like double multifunction ovens, stone countertops, designer sinks, wine coolers, and more.
Greenest South Beach Condos
The energy management system will have HighMass, which offers radiant cooling and heating throughout the towers at an estimated 40 percent savings in utility bills. With low VOC paints used throughout the condo and energy efficient LED lighting fixtures, 321 Ocean will easily have some of the greenest and most desirable South Beach condos in the South of Fifth neighborhood. An amazing community keeps on getting better.
