MIAMI BEACH, Florida, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Residences at The Miami Beach EDITION has sold both Penthouses to the same buyer at a combined contracted price of 34 million dollars, at a record-breaking $3800 per square foot.
"The Beach House"—a residence comprised of the top floor of the existing historic Seville structure plus two additional new floors above—has also sold for a contracted price of 14 million dollars, $3200 per square foot. All of the residences that have sold thus far represent a premium of over 200% above the existing market. In less than four weeks since the sales office opened and all sales collateral was complete, half of the residences in the project have been sold. These sales set records for the highest prices per square foot and velocity of sale for new residential condominiums sold during pre-construction at an average of $3,000 per square foot. This is a true paradigm shift and sets a new standard for Miami Beach.
These residences have garnered record-breaking prices at a record-setting pace because of the product distinction, the level of sophistication, the unique layouts and design, and the unprecedented level of finishes and details. Never before has there been a project of this caliber in Miami Beach. It is a new product, for a new Miami Beach. It is truly unchartered territory. "I have always strongly believed that if a product is special enough, distinct enough, and unique enough, it will always attract the new world class traveler and sophisticated buyer who wants to live in Miami Beach. It proves that if you build it, people will come," says Schrager. Breaking the mold and raising the bar for residential Miami living, The Residences set themselves apart from anything else in Miami Beach.
