Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount across various South Florida neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out!
Despite Lane Kiffin being named the next head football coach at Florida Atlantic, he has no time for house hunting considering he’s still the acting offensive coordinator at Alabama, a team with national championship expectations as we near the College Football Playoffs.
For this week’s Curbed Comparisons, we’re going to do Lane a favor and start the search for him, similar to what we did for Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside, who eventually bought this Miami Beach pad last summer.
Some relevant info for our search:
- Lane is single after getting divorced earlier so he’ll be looking for a bachelor pad
- He signed a five-year, $4.75 million contract with FAU
All four options are within four miles of FAU.

This three-bedroom condo would give Lane some dynamic ocean views and a wet bar.

If Lane’s looking for a home with more character this is it, but it’s a bit large for a single guy, sizing up at 4,613 square feet. Features include Turkish marble flooring and a summer kitchen near a covered loggia.
