Josh Stein Realtor’s Building of the Week: 1 Hotel and Homes

1 Hotel and Homes is one of the most recent additions to the Miami Beach shoreline, an elegant structure for those passing through and for those buying permanently into the community. Each condo has energy-efficient sliding glass doors leading onto a private balcony with generous view of the Atlantic Ocean, plus Inncom energy management technology, making 1 Hotel and Homes one of the most high-tech properties on the island.

“This is completely modern stuff, in a beautifully designed space, right next to everything worth seeing in South Beach,” says Realtor Josh Stein. “It’s a great new pick for my clients.”

When you live at 1, as the developers refer to it, you’re living in something new to the Miami Beach scene. Its beauty is in the way it lets residents experience the beauty of South Florida, the ocean, and the city skyline views — and stays out of the way. According to the developers, “These spacious, oceanfront homes range from large one-bedroom residences to spectacular penthouses and duplexes — all designed to use less and mean more.”

Josh Stein Realtor’s Building of the Week: One Thousand Museum
Few high-end residential skyscrapers have generated as much excitement as One Thousand Museum, which, in 2017, will anchor Miami’s north downtown skyline. Sixty-two stories tall, the ultra-modern design comes from Zaha Hadid, the award-winning architect who created London’s Olympic Aquatic Center and art museums around the world.
“Few Miami condos are as architecturally significant on a global scale as One Thousand Museum,” says Josh Stein. Stein’s clients can secure one of 83 prestigious homes in the property, which overlooks Biscayne Bay and Miami’s rising cityscape. Named for its proximity to the brand new Perez Art Museum and adjacent park, One Thousand Museum is steps from cultural sites and entertainment venues, as it towers over American Airlines Arena and the port of entry for Miami’s cruise ship industry.
Each enormous residence inside One Thousand Museum features world-class luxuries and amenities that rival or exceed the global standard for high-end living. They range from $4 million to $12 million and may be half the floor or the entire floor, which nears 10,000 square feet of living space. Next to the helicopter pad on the roof is a lounge exclusively for residents. Beneath the helipad is an indoor pool, event space, sun deck, and cigar lounge. Security at One Thousand Museum will surpass acceptable levels of safety at any other residence in Miami. Below, the amenity deck has several more pools, which seem to exist essentially to the building’s structure, weaving around the foundation, footbridges and cabanas, giving way to a spa and gym. It’s possible that One Thousand Museum will be the most coveted address in downtown Miami for decades.

In the new design, two modern glass towers stacking up at 12 stories each will sit on either side of the restored building. Private driveways and entrances will lead all the way up to each tower. Expanded parking lots will replace the current tennis courts to provide drivers with ample space and access to the 285 planned units.

The nine-acre property boasts more than 800 feet of oceanfront real estate. Two of the towers on site will comprise the residences while a third will be reserved for hotel rooms. Whether you’re staying for the night or for the long haul, you’ll experience luxury living at its finest. Drinks, shopping, and fine dining awaits along Collins Avenue.

Outside, the property will include four large swimming pools and decks. The south tower will be surrounded by a cabana boardwalk.

Josh Stein Realtor’s Building of the Week: Oceana Bal Harbour

Stake your claim in one of the last available oceanfront parcels on Bal Harbour. Oceana Bal Harbour is a massive condominium scheduled for completion in 2016 that is sure to become an iconic part of the northern islands skyline. Each of two 27-story towers includes spacious floor plans with up to four bedrooms. The first few floors feature commanding views of either the ocean or the bay. Penthouses are available at the very top.

Dine in the on-site restaurant, play a game of doubles at either of the lighted tennis courts, relax in the recreational pool or burn some calories in the lap pool. At the end of a stressful day or any day, take advantage of the full spa. Oceana Bal Harbour developers are building this magnificent property with the environment in mind. The building is LEED certified, meaning its design and energy use are environmentally friendly according to the U.S. Green Building Council.

Like all properties from Josh Stein, Oceana Bal Harbour was designed and built by the best. Lead Developer Eduardo Costantini has used his Argentinian roots to inspire a building sure to mesh with all that is beautiful and diverse here in South Florida. This Argentinian heritage “is a fitting compliment to the beauty and grace which the brand new Oceana Bal Harbour condominium will gleam,” the developers say.

One of the tallest buildings in South Beach, The Setai is a standard bearer for high-end Miami Beach condominiums. Residents of The Setai can experience the service of a five-star hotel as the building provides room service and 24-hour concierge. They can also sit back and enjoy full beachside service, including cabanas and daybeds.

The fully updated kitchen and rich design provide for ultimate luxury within each unit. Alongside the teak cabinetry and black backsplash, designer lighting creates a striking atmosphere.

Josh Stein Realtor’s building of the week: Boulan

Josh Stein loves all real estate, but he loves Art Deco the most. Boulan South Beach is one property that Stein relishes selling because of its modern blending of cutting edge amenities (it was built in 2010) and classic Art Deco style. Boulan is one of the finest examples of this, and its location in the heart of the South Beach Art Deco District puts the building on display amid a global architectural mecca. Boulan South Beach neighbors the Bass Museum of Art with its vast, tropical lawn, a block from the beach, and in the same neighborhood of the iconic Miami Beach hotels: Delano, SLS, and others. “Boulan South Beach is a great example of Art Deco, but the feel is completely brand new,” Stein says.

At Boulan, the place to be is the rooftop. The pool, jacuzzi, and cabanas are there surrounded by an oasis-like landscape of palm fronds, gazing over Collins Avenue. Penthouse residents have both balconies and direct access to private rooftop terraces to impress guests with views of the ocean. All residents have concierge services, a fitness center, and private beach service.

Each unit comes with state-of-the-art appliances and is custom planned by top interior designers. They feature limestone floors, European cabinets, and designer lighting. Every part of the decorating is meant to create a feeling of sanctuary away from the bustle of the city and the harsh South Florida heat. Sink into an oval soaking tub. Relax in a shower made of marble. All the countertops are white quartz. It’s a modern, elegant design, perfect for those seeking an urban lifestyle in a priceless location.

Josh Stein Realtor’s building of the week: Il Villaggio

At Il Villaggio, the residences are designed to feel as calming and glamorous as a vacation on the Italian Riviera. You feel that way the moment you walk in, says Josh Stein, who is pleased to list Il Villaggio condominiums for his clients. Each unit is a masterpiece of well-appointed luxury living, right in the heart of South Beach on the world-famous Ocean Drive.
Millions of people come from around the globe to play in the South Beach surf — something residents of Il Villaggio see every day from their wide terraces with glass balustrades. They can also see it from behind the floor-to-ceiling impact-resistant windows. Each unit has all of these amenities and more, including Italian cabinets and marble baths. With European-style kitchens and flow-through floor plans, the homes at Il Villaggio feel like the luxuries of another continent.
But they’re also quite up to the high standards of South Beach residential high rises, Stein says. There are 11 private, coded elevators and a four-story lobby made of glass and marble. It also includes 24-hour valet and security, along with a community room and a fully equipped fitness center. Units range from below $1.5 million to $9 million.

Josh Stein Realtor’s building of the week: Continuum I (South) & II (North)

The south and north towers of Continuum I and II, respectively, are the focal point of South Beach. At 42 stories each, visible from Fisher Island and Key Biscayne, they define the Miami Beach skyline. Their sheer luxury also helps explain why the South of Fifth neighborhood is the most coveted real estate on the island: For style, location and services, Continuum I and Continuum II are unmatched.

Josh Stein, who counts these condos among his top picks, says Continuum offers the most important aspects of living in Miami, including proximity to entertainment and dining, brilliant interior design and gorgeous ocean views. Owners can watch the ships come in and the waves crash or the growing Miami skyline light up as the sun sets over the cityscape. Terraces are massive, and so are the more than 20 diverse floor plans, which range from more than 1,200 square feet to more than 8,200. Each unit is furnished with “the latest in comfort, design, and luxury,” including every appliance.

Because Continuum occupies 12 acres of perhaps the most prime land in Miami Beach, it can offer some of the best amenities as well. That includes about 1,000 feet of pristine beach, complemented by private beach club towel, furniture, and cabana service. There are oasis swimming pools on rooftops and ground-level, free-form lagoon pools. And just inside, with bright ocean views, are a fitness center and spa. Residents also enjoy a sauna, steam room and treatment rooms. The developers have spared no expense to make Continuum one of the top residential destinations in the world.

Josh Stein Realtor’s building of the week: Apogee South Beach

Apogee South Beach is one of Josh Stein’s top condominiums. If you have any doubt about that, just walk into one of the bathrooms and turn on the shower. The water falls from lighted pockets in the ceiling like an iridescent waterfall. “These is the kind of spectacular features you can expect from Apogee South Beach,” Stein says.

Located in the exclusive South of Fifth neighborhood, Apogee South Beach is a short walk from everything: fine dining, world-class bars and clubs, parks, and beaches. Despite the beauty outside, Stein says new residents of Apogee have fun playing with the beauty inside their new homes. The 10-feet-high ceilings with towering, optically clear glass windows and 11-feet-deep balconies feel liberating and, along with the flow-through floor plans, give the space a sense of depth. The balconies have kitchens. And every home, of which there are four per floor, have a private elevator.

Your privacy is bolstered further by keyless entry doors for maximum safety; a fingerprint reader allows only you and your family inside. Near the entrance, there’s an AMX interactive panel that allows owners to control everything in their homes, from the temperature to the Lutron wireless lighting. In the common areas of the building, residents take pride in the design of the massive lobby and reflection pools, created by renowned architects.

Josh Stein Realtor’s building of the week: 1500 Ocean Drive

The location of 1500 Ocean Drive condominium could not be better. It’s a few blocks from the world-class dining and entertainment of Lincoln Road. Clubs and parks are nearby, including the stretch of Lummus Park beach that helped make Miami a global destination. Few condos listed by Josh Stein boast so much proximity.

But that’s not to say you wouldn’t be completely comfortable just staying home. Residents of 1500 Ocean Drive enjoy their own stretch of beach, ocean views from their large terraces and a huge swimming pool right against the Atlantic Ocean. The kitchens are decked with granite countertops and backsplashes, and elevators include private and semi-private foyers. With 16 stories and 111 units, the condos at 1500 Ocean Drive range from less than $2 million to $25 million.

In addition to state-of-the-art appliances and floor-to-ceiling impact windows, the amenities of 1500 Ocean Drive are among the best in South Beach. The motif is a lifestyle of comfort, and the staff at 1500 Ocean Drive take this idea seriously. They offer massage therapy and fitness training. For lunch, if it’s too hot to walk to Lincoln Road, Josh recommends staying home: Full-time attendants offer lunch menus poolside and on the beach. Even the less glamorous amenities are crucially important, including air-conditioned bicycle storage and other personal storage space.
