compares to Miami. Famous for its beautiful beaches and dynamic nightlife, Miami’s unique lifestyle has attracted many people into investing or renting a unit or several in its high rise condos. Living in Miami means having access to all sorts of cuisines and the perfect tropical weather.
“The number of people wanting to acquire a condo unit has grown exponentially over the years, knowing that Miami has some of the world’s best condo buildings nestled in the city or fronting its crystal clear waters,” says Miami businessman Lee S. Rosen.
If you’re planning to buy a condo in Miami or would want to visit one in the near future, here are some of them that you should definitely consider.
The Regalia Condominium in Sunny Isles Beach offers the perfect oceanfront views with only one residence per floor, ensuring you of total privacy. This high rise condo has 39 units, each having a full view of entire South Florida, Intracoastal Waterway, and the massive Atlantic ocean. Ocean Home Magazine Regalia called it the winner of Best Residential Development Platinum award in 2015.
Regalia Miami stands 47 floors tall, with an architecture that imitates the wind and the sea waves. Each unit can be customized as it is offered as a shell, although you can also get floorplan advice from developer Bernardo Fort Bescia of Arquitectonica.
In the vicinity is a theater, a media room, poolside and beachside cabanas, a wine bar, card playing room, billiard room with a cigar area, and a lounge that offers residents with pool and garden views. You’ll also love how the infinity edge pool is placed within a beautiful garden surrounded by fountains.
