Smart Brickell Reaches 50% Sold, Begins Converting To Contract

Conversion to contract is now underway at Smart Brickell.

According to developer Habitat Group, the first tower is now 50% sold. Conversion to contract will begin February 15.

In total, the $120 million project will include three towers with 170 condos and 150 hotel rooms. Condos range in price from $318,000 to more than $400,000 and range in size from 558 to 1,117 square feet.

Condos are being sold fully finished and furnished, with smart tech such as Nest and Alexa. Owners may choose either a two-year fixed annual leaseback or to live there themselves. Airbnb rentals are also allowed.

Groundbreaking is now scheduled for late 2018.

Arquitectonica is overseeing interior design and furnishing.

West Brickell so I’ll take it. Will bring a lot of regular folk to the area and increase density!

I hope the three towers aren’t phased but built all at once.

Are they really legal? Or just permitted by the HOA. Two different items…

Great project. Love the scale and design for the area.

LOL $318K for a 558 sq foot condo in a non-waterfront building with panoramic views of I-95. These foreign nationals aren’t so great at shopping around South Florida.

$318K gets you into an oceanfront building in Hallandale, or a really nice spacious townhouse in Miami Lakes. And neither locations have bums strewn out along the surrounding streets.

Of course, all the young executives at downtown Miami’s numerous Fortune 500 headquarters will line up for this (sarcasm light on).

Yeah, but then you can rent it for $3000 a month to some cash strapped local… right? That’s their plan?

I live in Miami Lakes and commute to Brickell everyday. Trust me, if I could afford Brickell I would pack my bags tomorrow.

Not ALL. There are a lot of people who are living with their parents in Miami Lakes, saving up money to buy in Brickell or West Brickell.

How about all the Fortune 500 young executives who torture themselves with the 60-90 minute commute to their Doral headquarters? This should take off 10 minutes.

Overpaying for a downtown drywall box to save 10 minutes of a 60-90 minute commute time….that makes sense

Neither Hallendale nor Miami Lakes have a Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Saks Fifth Avenue, Metrorail to the Airport, or such a dense concentration of high paying jobs and well educated people within 10 blocks.
I get it…you can get good deals in Hallandale. You can also get good deals at TJ Maxx. Different places, for different people.

Hopefully there will be well thought out street level commercial. The density west of the metro has been increasing steadily but the variety of store/restaurants has not. With this, the recent 1010, and Maizon the area is looking good.

What guarantees do buyers have that Airbnb rentals will still be legal in future years? What happens if the city of Miami makes them illegal to protect the hotel industry? Buyers are paying a HUGE premium to rent their units short-term but no guarantee that laws won’t change.

What guarantees do you have that the place you live in won’t fall through a giant sinkhole tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year?

Sorry, but in life you don’t get any guarantees.

I like the project but can someone fix the sides and back of the project? I wished we could have only underground parking in the city but we can’t unfortunately.

Nice design for an apartment building in West Brickell. Not a huge fan of the sides of the buildings though…

It would have been “smart” if they saved and restored the historic apartment house at 229 SW 9th Street, shirfting the development’s footprint closer to 3rd Avenue, and moving the common area so it’s between the two. Nobody wants to sit outside to listen to cars and smell exhaust from I-95.comment image

That building is old.
Big difference being historic and being old.

Well it looks nicer than over half the new stuff so what’s your point? Tear it down because it’s old? I guess two-thirds of NYC is due for the wrecking ball with your logic. Please…

The building pictured is old, inefficient, built with lead paint, probably asbestos, and Doug with Mesothelioma probably lives there.
#1. The property owner can do what they want. My opinion doesn’t matter.
#2. The area is zoned for more density, so highest and best use isn’t 3 story building.
#3. Study NYC’s history. Preservation is a fairly new phenomenon…a building as close to the Financial District as this building is would have seen a wrecking ball a long time ago.

They just repainted that building not that long ago, it’s white now.
