Il Villaggio South Beach

Il Vallaggio (click here to view listings) is one of the best located and most famous luxury living residences in South Beach. There are good reasons for the wide recognition of SoBe. It dances through the minds and hearts of dream vacationers around the globe, as real a paradise as there may be to visit. South Beach’s culture includes world-renowned dining, historic architecture, boutique and high-end shopping, some of the world’s most beautiful beachfronts, a sophisticated museum and fine arts scene, and an electric nightlife. South Beach combines the chic and the timeless, and Il Vallaggio’s location on the iconic Ocean Drive may be the most thorough snapshot of what South Beach life represents.

An Elegance Unmatched

Many of the luxury condo buildings in South Beach were designed to look more hip, modern and sleek than their predecessors, and while there is certainly nothing old-fashioned or antiquated about Il Vallaggio, it was designed with a European timelessness in mind. Imagining Il Vallaggio to reflect the sweeping splendor of European architecture, Fullerton Diaz & Revuelta designed an architectural masterpiece that was both stylish and regal.

Upon entering the lobby, you’ll be welcomed into a stunning, multi-story lobby of marble and glass. While the valet is taking care of the car, you’ll make your way into one of the eleven private elevators that are coded to take you straight to your private, personalized foyer entrance. Your unit boasts marble floors, top-quality Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, floor-to-ceiling windows and large terraces. It may have a through-building sunrise and sunset balcony and a wine chiller, or if you’re in one of the penthouses, a rooftop Jacuzzi and sunbathing area. You might choose to head to one of Il Vallaggio’s beach lounges with towel service, visit an on-site restaurant to dine with friends or family, head to the fully-equipped fitness center, relax at the heated infinity edge pool, or attend a community room event. Or perhaps, you’ll decide to spend an evening out.

Surrounded by South Beach Culture

Il Villaggio rests atop an enclave of boutique shops, and one of the trendiest shopping, dining, and clubs in all of South Florida are just steps from your door. Ocean Drive is packed with fun, flavor and festivity, no matter what you’re in the mood for. And as if it wasn’t wonderful enough to have the Atlantic Ocean and the beachfront to your east and the energizing Ocean Drive setting to your west, Lummus Park is immediately south of Il Vallaggio. If all you want is a simple walk through the neighborhood’s most famous beachfront park, it’s all yours.

Nowhere else in South Beach can you experience the combination of such grandiose elegance and immediate access to the neighborhoods iconic experiences. Enjoy the beachfront and park side promenades, the Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road shopping and dining, and the five-star luxury of life in a perpetual resort. Il Villaggio’s status as one of the quintessential luxury buildings is well-deserved, as its design and location intertwine timeless elegance and the essence of SoBe life.

Miami Housing Market Strengthening For Waterfront Lots

By Sunny Isles Real Estate Expert on September 7th, 2011

Miami waterfront properties For Sale

Miami water front homes for sale

Location, location, location is always the truth in real estate. While numerous areas of the Miami real estate market offer a variety of single family homes for individual buyers and investors, the properties that continue to remain the most attractive to buyers are those with waterfront views or direct waterfront access.

Available oceanfront, bayfront and Intracoastal lots between South Beach and Fort Lauderdale are growing in popularity among individual investors and developers. Vacant lots as well as homes ripe for teardown and reconstruction are both drawing the attention of local and international buyers. One of the most recent sales along this prominent coastline includes a two acre lot offering 200 feet of waterfront footage within the Miami Beach community which sold for $15 million. Miami waterfront properties are limited, and therefore always in demand. In addition to single family residences, Miami condos are also in demand along the coastal fronts.

South Beach real estate

has been on the rise in regards to luxury waterfront condo sales. There are many popular condos currently available for sale at great prices. Here is a short list of most popular newer construction buildings which are in demand on South Beach: Apogee Miami, both Continuum and Continuum II, <a href=", Icon, Murano to name just a few.

“While the inventory has dropped in recent months, a variety of luxury condominiums still remain available along the desirable Miami coastline, including both new developer construction and prime resales,” said Lana Bell of Sunny Realty.

Of the 5,000 condos recently built in the Fort Lauderdale area, only 70 still remain unsold from the original developers. In the Hollywood and Hallandale beach areas, there are also just a handful of the available developer condo units still available for purchase.

What does this mean? Much of the available inventory has changed hands, from the developers to individual investors and buyers. This capital exchange has freed up funds developers need to begin new projects in the surrounding area. While developer properties have been selling strongly, new developments aren’t expected to pop up quickly. In fact, there is only one project currently slated to begin construction in the area. This project – Apogee Beach, is being developed by Jorge Perez and scheduled to break ground in early 2012.

While the future of new developments are unsure, Miami real estate experts suggest most of the developer attention will be focused on oceanfront or ocean view properties as opposed to downtown opportunities due to the consistent demand for these locations. After the recent market turmoil, many developers are sitting back, waiting to assess what their next move or next project will be.

Regardless of new developments in the area, which will certainly come, single family properties and condos are still in high demand along the Miami coastline, which is certain to remain strong over the coming years.
