When most people see Icon South Beach, their first thought is, “Whoa.” Developer Jorge Perez and world-famous designer Philippe Starck have found a way to embody all the energy of Miami in a single incredible property, located in the glamorous South of Fifth neighborhood of South Beach. “One peek inside the lobby, and most people are ready to buy,” says Miami Beach Realtor Josh Stein.
The 290 residences of this 40-story tower are impressive. While most condos in Miami follow a mold, Philippe Starck has offered four distinct design themes that characterize the nine different floor plans, which means each unit has an individualized feel. Yet there are fixed standards of luxury. Enjoy nine-foot ceilings with sweeping floor-to-ceiling window views. Residents have a choice of marble or granite countertops, with high-end appliances, marble bathroom flooring and designer European cabinetry.
The reception desk is 40-feet long with a 24-hour attendant, meaning residents will not likely find themselves waiting for concierge service. Another unique feature is Icon South Beach’s cafe, which overlooks Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline. Toss in the bayfront infinity swimming pool and the proximity to all of South Beach’s famous nightlife, and Icon is the perfect place to call home. Prices begin at $1.5 million.
