From the moment you walk into the lobby at the 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach, you'll notice it's unlike most of its kind on historical Collins Avenue.
From the appearance to the smell to the vibe, the eco-friendly establishment just feels different. It's high-end, sure, but without the pretentious aura emitting from some of South Florida's swankiest hotels.
With so many luxury condo residences flooding the Miami market, we desired a tour of the penthouse collection at 1 Hotel & Homes to see for ourselves what distinguishes these residences from the rest. For one, the rooftop pool area is among the coolest amenities in South Beach.
But most of all it's the location, "close enough to experience South Beach on your terms," says Harlan Goldberg, Director of Sales at Douglas Elliman, which is exclusively handling all sales and marketing efforts. Each of the 29 penthouses is unique, with every floor plan different from the rest. Nine have been sold since sales launched last November.
The priciest unit available is Penthouse #1610, a duplex near completion on the southeast corner offered at $16 million. It has 3,955 square feet of interior space, 730 square feet of outdoor space, 12.5-foot ceilings and Instagram-friendly ocean views. It's in the process of being completed.
Here are some other penthouse residences for your viewing pleasure.
The 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach truly is one of a kind.
