While the Big Apple may offer a little bit of everything, great weather is not on this list.
If you are ready to get away from the dark and cold days, consider doing what some of your fellow New Yorkers are already doing – buy a second home where the sun always shines – in Miami. Despite all the reports that the market may be slowing down, there are still plenty of projects that are ready to be occupied and still being developed.
Existing residences that are available for purchase range in style. You can find large and small scale projects, oceanfront or riverside options and builders and developers are ready to make arrangements to meet the demands of their buyer’s budgets – whatever this may be.
Some of the current places to check out in this region are found here.
Located on South Bayshore Drive, this 260 room unit, three tower development is the first residential project in the US by the co-founder of the OMA, Rem Koolhaas. Developed by the Miami developer “big boys,” The Related Group and Terra Group, buyers can find one to six-bedroom units that span from 2,200 to 3,600 square feet.
While the residences start at $2 million, they offer a number of amenities, which include a wine tasting room with private storage options, 28 seat screening room and a pool deck on the roof.

Ritz Carlton Residences in Sunny Isles Beach
Sunny Isles Beach is no stranger to condo tower development on the coast, which is why the development of a 52 condo tower at 15701 Collins Ave. is no surprise. This 212 unit tower features all the class and luxury expected from the Ritz-Carlton (see website here), contained in full-time residences. Some of the features of these units include Intracoastal views, ceiling heights of more than 10 feet (some reaching 15 feet), roomy terraces and private pools. There is also a full floor penthouse that recently sold for $21 million in 2015, which is a record for the Sunny Isles neighborhood.
As you can see, there are more than a few options available if you need to find something warmer and sunnier. Venture away from New York and see the benefits offered on the shore with some high-end luxurious condo towers in Miami and surrounding communities.
