This new development, featured in the rendering above, will be located at 8505-8521 Harding Avenue in the North Beach neighborhood of Miami [...]
Given this incredibly long and brutal winter for everyone in the United States, except for those of us lucky enough to live in Sunny SoFla, it’s no wonder we saw more buyers from more places this year, trying to find their winter haven in Miami Beach.

With the successful sale of the Eden House & Peloro Condos just south, the interest for this vacant lot at 6800 Indian Creek Drive increased and it was just sold earlier this year for $11,250,000.

Then, there’s a minimum parking requirement for new [...]

Since I moved to Miami Beach in 1995, the Mt. Vernon Hotel has stood vacant. Home to pigeons, slowly decaying, and simply overlooked during the last real estate boom, the Mt Vernon has been recently re-discovered. Originally built as a 36 unit hotel, the Mt Vernon is located within the North Beach Resort Historic District. The plans presented to the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board (HPB) in January provide some [...]
