Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount across various Miami neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out!
For today’s budget we’re swelling up to $9 million and looking at properties in Miami Beach, Venetian Islands, Surfside, and Fort Lauderdale.
The only homes considered were newer listings, hitting the market within the last three months, with water views.
Let’s start to the south.
↑ Miami Beach: 100 South Pointe Drive #2505
Pros: Amazing views behind a curved wall of floor-to-ceiling windows at the Continuum.
Cons: It’s a little cowcentric—those rugs—and not even 3,000 square feet.
↑ Venetian Islands: 1370 South Venetian Way
This 4,000-square-foot home on San Marco Island features glorious bay views to the south, a living room with towering ceilings, and a rooftop deck.
↑ Surfside: 8701 Collins Avenue
Here’s a 3,460-square-foot unit at the upcoming Eighty Seven Park designed by Pritzker Award-winner Renzo Piano. It has three bedrooms and three and a half baths.
↑ Fort Lauderdale: 2506 Barcelona Drive
Located near Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale, this modern build offers some rather unique neon lighting in the kitchen, main living areas, and backyard.
↑ Fort Lauderdale: 655 Middle River Drive
Built in 2016, this 7,800-square-foot home on Middle River Drive has 90 feet of waterfront and an awesome wet bar adjacent to the backyard.
