Update: This unit has been sold.
So I had to take a moment to make all of our readers aware of one of our listings which we believe to be a great value at Quantum on the Bay. Unit 2815 is a fully upgraded 2 Bedroom and Den in the North Tower with unobstructed Biscayne Bay views. It is 1460 sq ft and this unit unlike the developer units has been upgraded with Travertine floors throughout, high-end window treatments, lighting throughout and the den has been enclosed and can be used as a third bedroom. This unit was originally purchased by the seller directly from the builder for $462,000 and then upgraded. We are currently asking $399,000 for a quick sale. This is a great deal for an end-user who is looking for a turnkey condo in a new building in the greater Downtown area. For showings call Samir Patel at 305-503-6183.

MARQUIS is here! Well almost. Marquis Condo is just a few weeks away from beginning closings and during the last week I had a few chances to get into the building and get my fix. I have been dying to get into this building. Marquis is located at 1100 Biscayne Blvd and stands 67 stories tall (the second tallest residential building in Miami, behind the Four Seasons) across from Museum Park and Biscayne Bay. I was extremely excited to finally get in with my clients over the last week to look at many of the floorplans. I had a chance to preview 1 bedroom with dens, 2 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms and even an incredible 4 bedroom. Marquis is the last Downtown Miami Condo to open and the last in the Biscayne Wall which consists of Ten Museum Park, Marina Blue and 900 Biscayne Bay. Unlike many of the other developments built in Miami recently, Marquis includes only 306 exclusive residences and a boutique hotel within the building. The Hotel is named TEMPO Miami and is a RockResorts® Hotel. This is a great feature for when you have visiting friends from out of town. You can put them up in the hotel and still be close enough. The hotel only consists of 56 rooms and is located between the 3rd and 14th floors so I wouldn’t expect the hotel patrons to be in the way of the full time residents of Marquis. Marquis also will house a signature restaurant and I hear that a major chef is coming to the building. I won’t disclose who until it’s official but its big! So the first impression I had of the building was as I entered the lobby. There is a valet entrance with separate lobbies for the residents and also for the hotel. As we entered the lobby I noticed that every inch of the lobby was covered in some material. The walls were clad with Marble, Stone and Wood. A great feature is the private elevators to most lines in the building. We took the private elevator up to one of the floors and we took a look at the two bedroom one-story units which was a flow through unit offering both East and West views like most units in the building. I also was able to see a huge 4 bedroom on the North East corner and a large 3 bedroom on the South East corner. The views were mind-blowing from all units. The kitchens were very sleek with all Viking appliances, and the spacious master baths were appointed with Duravit and KWC fixtures. The terraces were huge and all living spaces had minimum 10-foot ceilings with 20-foot ceilings in some areas. The interior doors were also impressive, they went all the way up to the ceiling. Anyway here are the photos:

ICON Brickell Condo is Fannie-Mae Approved! At least tower one is according to the new list published by Fannie-Mae on their website efanniemae.com – take a look. Looks like Related Group is working over-time to get these projects approved. They recently received Fannie-Mae approval on 500 Brickell as well. This means that ICON Brickell now qualifies for conventional lending from the major lenders as long as the buyer is credit-worthy and the loan amount is within the Fannie-Mae approved loan limits. This is good news for Related and should assist them in closing many more of the units. Prices at ICON Brickell start from the mid $200,000’s for studios. For showings call Samir Patel, Licensed Real Estate Broker of Miami Condo Realty, Inc. at 305-503-6183.

Yesterday I received an email from RCRS stating that 500 Brickell has become Fannie Mae approved. This means that this building now qualifies for conventional lending from the major lenders as long as the buyer is credit-worthy. This is good news for Related and should assist them in closing many more of the units. This follows after recent price cuts at 500 Brickell. Currently this is one of the best deals in town for a NEW condominium. Sure some of the prices are not in line with Miami Foreclosures or Short Sales but not all buyers today have cash to go after those. Prices at 500 Brickell start in the low $200,000’s for 1 bedrooms and the low $300,000’s for 2 bedrooms. For showings call Samir Patel, Licensed Real Estate Broker of Miami Condo Realty, Inc. at 305-503-6183.
