Apogee is truly the most luxurious and exclusive building in South of Fifth (and, really, all of the Miami Beach condo market). This is THE place for those who want privacy â€“ each line has its own elevator bank, and each Apogee condo has its own elevator foyer. The building sold out during pre-construction, and 100% of the units closed, which was very rare at the time when Apogee started closing in early 2008).
Because of the caliber of the building, Apogee has maintained unit value to a larger extent than most buildings in the area. No Apogee condo has ever sold for less than $1,000 per sq ft. The â€œ04â€³ line commends the highest prices per sq ft because of its size and views â€“ the average price for sold units in the line is over $1,600 per sq ft.
Some condos at Apogee are offered for sale â€œdecorator readyâ€ (i.e. concrete floors, etc), while other units are already finished.
A few Apogee condos are also available for rent, starting around $15,000 per month. About Apogee South Beach
The definition of â€œapogeeâ€ is the pinnacle, the highest point. And that could not be a more appropriate description for this building, the brainchild of uber-developer Jorge Perez of the Related Group. After bringing us the Portofino Towers, Murano at Portofino, Murano Grande and Icon, Perez has outdone himself with Apogee.Even the tiniest thing about the building imparts luxury, privilege, pampered living, and extreme perfection.
The posh amenities of condos in Apogee (calling the valet to retrieve your car, concierge service, a fully-equipped gym, an infinity lap pool, an on-site spa, and even a button to make a spa appointment) are complemented to perfection by the state of the art technology (such as sound-proof walls between apartments, custom lighting schemes, futuristic fingerprint door entry, wiring for automatic drapery, DVD players built into mirrors in the master bathroom.)
The sleek, super-modern all-glass condo building, which sits on a lit-up pool is the result of the collaboration between award-winning Sieger Suarez Architectural Partnership, which designed the building, and Yabu Pushelberg, one of the foremost interior designers in the world, who imagined the lobby and common spaces, which are now adorned with exquisite black marble and granite, as well as contemporary art by well-known local artists.
The condos, of which there are only 67 in total, have 10-foot ceilings, 11-foot wide balconies with outdoor summer kitchen built-in, and top-of-the-line appliances, including two Miele smart ovens and warmer drawers, two dishwashers, and Sub-Zero wine storage for 132 bottles in the kitchen. The master bathroom, with its rain showerheads and steam showers, as well as an oversized sunken tub, closely resembles a posh spa. And thereâ€™s more â€“ a mini emergency kitchen in the master suite, the finest wood finishing for cabinetry, built-out closets. Plus, magnificent ocean and city views from each apartment.
Apogee is the most sought-after building in SoFi also because it affords its owners the highest level of privacy of any building in the South Beach real estate market. There are only 4 units per floor, each with its own elevator foyer. There are only two floor plans in the building: the corner units are 4,154 sq ft, with 2,400 sq ft of terrace, and the middle units are 3,103 sq ft with 1,000 sq ft of terrace. All units are flow-through, offering both North and South views.
Apogee also offers three major tri-level penthouses, all complete with their own rooftop pool.
