When you think of Miami, your mind naturally pictures the pristine white sand beaches and sparkling turquoise waters of world-renowned South Beach. Living here has been likened to living at a private resort. Once you take a look around, it’s easy to understand why.
Home to some of South Beach’s most coveted real estate, the section called South of Fifth—or SoFi—offers you a lavish, coastal lifestyle nestled within the cultural excitement of an international city. Secluded from the tourists, this famed section of Miami Beach feels like it’s yours alone to discover and enjoy.
Two exclusive condominium developments put you in the center of what this area has to offer. Read on to discover which pedestrian-friendly waterfront residence will help you make your dream home—and ideal lifestyle—a reality.
Modern Waterfront Style and Sophistication
Boasting some of the finest restaurants, nightlife, beaches, and parks of South Florida, Apogee South Beach is convenient to both the Miami Design District and Miami International Airport, making it just right for both business travelers and pleasure seekers.
Considered one of South Florida’s most luxurious condominiums, Apogee South Beach spans 22 stories and features 67 well-appointed residences, each with flow-through city and water views. The Related Group of Florida completed the development in 2008, with Sieger-Suarez overseeing the chic interior design and cementing the property’s reputation for taking luxury to the next level. The spacious units range from 3,103 – 4,154 square feet.
Residents can retreat to meticulously crafted bathrooms featuring dual showers with three body spray options. There are also two bath and shower designs: a Dornbracht MEM style bath and shower featuring a cast-in-place concrete tub and walk-in shower, with a lighted rain shower head, tub lights and MEM faucets, fittings and accessories or a Steam Shower with a custom shower enclosure and jetted tub options.
Finished in sophisticated granite and French limestone, Apogee South Beach includes only four residences per floor, each with private elevator entry, an oversized two-car garage, and a state-of-the-art AMX© interactive smart panel with keyless fingerprint door entry and instant access to the property’s security, valet and spa services.
With sound-deadening boards between floors to reduce noise transmission, each unit was built with uncompromising quality and spaciousness in mind. Balconies are 11-feet deep with outdoor summer kitchens just right for entertaining. Chic detailing—10-foot high ceilings, oversized entry doors and built-in wall air conditioning units—add to each unit’s aesthetic appeal.
The kitchen features custom design elements—Salvatore cabinetry with full height doors, 27″ SubZero refrigerator and freezer drawers, and double dishwashers—that bring modern functionality and style to this crucial part of the home.
Naturally, the on-site amenities are top-notch. An experienced staff is on hand at both the high-end fitness center and indulgent spa to help you unwind, relax and enjoy life to the fullest. There’s also an amazing infinity-edge pool with breathtaking views of the sea.
Apogee South Beach also includes an open-air Party Pavilion—a private function space with breathtaking views for hosting special events like weddings, birthdays and parties. The attention to detail and uncompromising quality make living here the perfect spot for soaking up the sun and enjoying special times with your loved ones.
