Although society is (hopefully) developing a renewed artistic appreciation for the more designed-up aspects of 1980s architecture, such as the postmodernist palazzos of early Arquitectonica, more unadorned, monolithic boxes of the '80s are often unappreciated. Think of the older condo towers in the general vicinity of the Omni, like the Grand, and the Venetia. Just over the first bridge of the Venetian Causeway, however, at this well-maintained 1000 Venetian Way unit on the market for $1.39 million, the beige blocky-ness of the 1980s might just look as good as new.
This 1,720 square foot, two bedroom corner unit, with a huge, 800 square foot balcony overlooking Biscayne Bay, has been thoroughly updated. A kitchen of dark wood cabinetry offsets a light-filled living area with cream walls, oak and marble floors, and chrome lighting fixtures. Marble counters are in the kitchen and baths, and the unit is wired with a touch-screen entertainment system. Downstairs, the building's common areas are lookin' snazzy too.
