Jade Ocean Condo in Sunny Isles Beach
is probably one of the most striking and recognizable structure in South Florida. The 55-story all glass structure looks like something from not so distant future, and resembles a gigantic sale of a ship. This is really no surprise if you’re familiar with work of architect Carlos Ott. Carlos always loved Miami and always wanted to leave an impression in the city with his sheer talents in designing modern structures with a distinctive character. Well, Jade Ocean Sunny Isle definitely possess such character. The unique design allows residents to fully maximize the nature elements as well top amenities offered in the building.
Jade Ocean is the only building that offers oceanfront entrance and it definitely adds to an already grand entrance appeal that you get when entering the building. The lobby leaves an astonishing feeling of sheer beauty and elegance from the beautiful art decorated walls to all Fendi furniture. All apartments in Jade Ocean face the ocean. This is another rare design feature which keeps units in this condo in a very high demand. Other amenities include “smart” building features, which basically allow you to utilize and integrate modern technology with every day life. Overall Jade Ocean is considered the top address in North Miami Beach.
Sunny Isles Beach
on the other hand does not look like extraordinary from the outside. The complex comprises of two towers – Turnberry Ocean Colony North and a South Tower. However, the minute you turn off Collins Ave and drive up to the gate, everything changes. All of a sudden you start realizing that you should not judge the book by it’s cover.
The massive courtyard after you pass the gate greets you with a beautiful water fountain and the circular valet drop off area is very comfortable and allows for a good traffic flow so you never have to wait in line. The lobby in Turnberry Ocean Colony is a combination of Manhattan style tradition and super luxurious furniture perfectly blends with variety of hard wood and intricate design of marble. Among the many amenities in the building, they gym, restaurant and the beach service stand out from the rest of the buildings, including Jade Ocean.
There are only 4 apartments per floor in each tower. Each unit offers direct ocean views and one of the best layouts among any buildings. Both towers are connected and share amenities such as gym, restaurant, spa and game rooms. The spa is also a combination of top equipment for sauna and steam rooms, relaxation room with coffee, tea, snacks, massage and beauty areas with masseuses always ready to treat you and again outstanding service which is unmistakably part of Turnberry Colony experience.
Having to know both complexes extremely well, my conclusion is if you’re a full time Florida resident and looking for extra service and amenities, Turnberry Ocean is the place for you. If, on the other hand you’re using your residence part time and drawn by the architecture and the looks, Jade Ocean is the place for you. Either way, both places are among the top luxury Florida condos and will for sure appreciate over the next several years.
