    In my opinion, the most exciting development coming to Miami is 1000 Museum. It's designed by award winning architect Zaha Hadid. Units start at $4M and should be completed by Summer 2016 or from what I'm told possibly earlier. The demand has been intense with early reservations already topping $100M. Please see below for some specifications on the features of the units. This applies for most units but not all with the only potential difference being Penthouse ceiling heights.

        1000 Museum Unit Features

    • Finished Flooring through-out residence and terraces
    • Interior lighting by Kreon with controls and automation integration by Creston
    • Custom Built in Closets throughout
    • Custom Kitchens by Gatto with Apliances by Gaggenau and Sub-Zero
    • Midnight Kitchen in Master Suite
    • Wet Bar with built-in wine cooler in Living Area
    • Plumbing Fixtures by Duravit, Dombracht & Kohler
    • 8' high sold core Designer Doors and Hardward
    • Linerar Style AC diffusers throughout
    • Superior performance floor to ceiling window-wall thermal glazing
    • Ceiling Heights to 10' throughout most areas

    Look at the future of Downtown Miami! Zaha Hadid has designed a really unique structure which is going to help catepult Miami into a complete different level. The struture is impressive and has an external skeleton which will allow for the units to have minimal interior beams etc. Some details:

    • Half Floor or Full Floor
    • Duplex Townhomes
    • Single Duplex Penthouse
    • $4M-$30M
    • 4500 s.f. - 9800 s.f.
    • 62 Stories
    • 83 Units
    • Rooftop Helipad
    • Private Elevators
    • Between 900 Biscayne & 10 Museum Park (Current site is BP Gas)
    • Deverlopers Greg Covin (Ten Museum Park Developer) & Louis Birdman
    • 3 Parking Spaces + 1 Valet
    • Unique Architecture allowing for creative floor plans
    • Custom Flooring, Lighting, Furnishings and more
    • Estimated Completion is 2016
    • Groundbreaking Set for Spring 2014
    • State of the art aquatic centers & Fitness Center/Spa
    • Private Rooftop Lounge

    "I really love Miami, but I don't think the architecture matches the city," Ms. Hadid said in an interview. "It's a bit too commercial."

    I love the quote and absolutely agree. Miami is so unique and flashy but the architecture absolutely doesn't match that. With Hadid's project I see the quality of projects and the creativity levels changing dramatically.

    With 1000 Museum, SLS Brickell and the unnamed Genting Group Project there is a lot to look forward to in the next few years. Downtown Miami is completely evolving and it's exciting to be a part of.

    If you're interested in being part of my VIP Buyer list for any of these projects please email me at mikedyourrealtor@gmail.com I will keep you updated as soon as I receive any information from meetings or the developer. Reservations will go quickly.

  • Genting Group's Luxury Downtown Miami Hotel/Condo Development

    Paramount Bay
    The highly-anticipated launch of Miami's Genting Group Downtown Miami Development is becoming a reality. How exciting is it to experience Miami's new construction boom.


    Other condo-hotel success stories such as ICON Brickell, St Regis Bal Harbour, Marquis Miami and more, lead to the next gem to hit the market, The Genting Group's major development in Downtown Miami.  This is a significant development project, and arguably one that will transform Downtown Miami especially North of 395.


    Here are a few things that make this new development something unique:

    • One of the few Miami condos with direct access to a gorgeous promenade walk way along the Biscayne Bay which will connect to the new Museum Park.
    • Well-laid floorplans with incredible views of Biscayne Bay and superb bathrooms and kitchens
    • A unique architecture that makes this project one of Miami's new landmarks
    • Boardwalk running under I-395 to directly connect to the new Museum Park
    • 3 to 4 bayfront restaraunts
    • 4 Star Luxury Hotel (Partner unknown as of this moment)
    • 2 Condo Towers (several hundred units in each)
    • Rehabilitating the historic Boulevard Shops along Biscayne Boulevard.
    • Marina for Yachts (pending state approval)

    This project is one of the last great buying opportunties for newly-built, condo living in Miami.  And, I will have early buying opportunities for its clients.  I expect this development to completely reshape the area and it will finally create that link between the developments North of 395 and Museum Park.


    What You Need to Know About Buying a Condo at Genting's New Development

    • If you are interested in learning more, I am creating a special VIP List.  This list is EXCLUSIVE to Global Luxury Realty and will be the first of my clients to be offered a unit to purchase.  To be added to my list, please email mikedyourrealtor@gmail.com with the headline 'Genting Project' as the subject.
