JEWEL ON THE WATER

The glass–enclosed towers sparkling in the heart of Aventura are among the city’s latest jewels, The Atrium at Aventura. The two 12–story towers feature 192 boutique homes including terrace–level, two–story apartments and top–floor double–high penthouses. Prices start at $500,000 and go to $1.3 million.

The interiors match the luxe of the Atrium’s façade. Double doors grace the entrance of each apartment. Spacious, state–of–the–art kitchens are outfitted with granite counter–tops and master baths feature marble floors and vanity tops. A full–size washer and dryer are included in every home.

The Atrium is designed for families of every size. For those with little ones, there is a large children’s playground and the peace of mind that comes with 24–hour security. And just steps away is the city’s first charter elementary school. Empty–nesters, newlyweds, singles (and weary parents) will appreciate the waterfront pool, fitness center with his and her steam and sauna rooms, a hot tub, and sundeck. There is also a 22–boat slip, private marina, and boardwalk.

A GOOD LIFE YEAR ROUND

For those who have ever yearned for the satisfaction of home ownership combined with the amenities of first–class hotel service, the wait is over. The St. George Residences and Condo–Hotel, now under construction in Coral Cables, will feature 83 one– to three–bedroom condos priced from the mid–$400s and up. Additionally, 117 studio and one–bedroom hotel condos are also available starting from the mid–$200s.

The kitchens feature granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Lavish, spacious baths with separate tub and shower promise to melt away the day’s troubles. If that doesn’t do it, a cocktail out on your private balcony is sure to do the trick.

But it’s the unparalleled service that will make St. George so alluring. Managed by Hilton Hotels, residents will have at their disposal all the hotel and spa amenities, including 24–hour concierge services, valet, security staff, in–room dining, and housekeeping. A private entrance for condo owners is just off the stunningly designed main lobby, and a lushly landscaped pool deck with heated pool is also part of the St. George lifestyle. Opens December 2008.

AN OASIS OVERLOOKING THE BAY

Hot neighborhoods don’t get any hotter than Brickell, and now the last remaining bay front site in this prestigious area is turning up the heat with Villa Magna. Two 60–story towers will rise majestically over the bay, home to 787 luxurious private residences and town homes.

The one– to four–bedroom homes, ranging in price from $800,000 to $3 million, are a study in quality. Kitchens feature imported Italian cabinetry and Sub–Zero and Bosch appliances. Bathrooms are equally luxurious outfitted with six–jet whirlpool tubs and Italian–design faucets and fixtures. Soaring ceilings and floor–to–ceiling windows give a spacious feel to the homes, and award–winning state–of–the–art technology—wireless remote control panels for security and electronics—make living there a snap.

When it’s time to unwind, residents can head up to the Skydeck, an urban oasis perched 150 feet above the bay. There they’ll find an infinity edge pool, wind–resistant sand beach, a heated lap pool, massage island, open–air cabanas and whirlpools. The high–tech buildings will also have an on–premise generator that can provide electricity to the towers and individual homes during a power outage.

“We’re seeing steady, responsible growth in this market,” says Veronica Cervera, president of Cervera Real Estate in Miami. “The high–end, luxury market is very good. Buyers are especially attracted to anything with a high design element. For instance, large bathrooms with spa elements such as rain showers, are in demand right now.”
