CONSTRUCTION LAUNCHES AT SPARK, A HUMAN-SCALE LUXURY RESIDENTIAL OFFERING IN EDGEWATER
The project is Spider’s first to break ground in Miami, setting a crucial milestone for the company’s track record

Miami, FL.- Spider, an all-in-one real estate solutions company, officially kicked off construction of Spark, its flagship boutique residential project. The ceremonial groundbreaking was held on Thursday, September 8th, at the project’s site on 522 NE 34th St., in the heart of Edgewater, one of Miami’s trendiest districts. Upon completion, Spark will feature only 56 units with views of Biscayne bay and Miami Beach’s skyline with floor-to-ceiling windows. Prices start at $500,000.
According to Andres Goldenberg, Spider’s Principal, “We bought Spark’s site in early 2014 with a clear vision of a project perfectly suited for a lifestyle with a careful balance of luxury, sophistication, and sustainability, focused on fitness, the arts, and entertainment. Today’s groundbreaking marks the first step in the realization of that vision.”
The project breaks ground with nearly 40% of units sold. Construction is expected to finish in the first quarter of 2018.
Unit designs consist of one bedroom – two bathrooms (optional two bedrooms), two bedrooms – two bathrooms with den, and three bedrooms – three bathrooms residences, all with spacious balconies. Spark also offers two triplex penthouses with private terraces. Condos will range from about 955 square feet to about 1,800 square feet. Penthouses will range from 3,895 square feet to 3,925 square feet. All units will be delivered completely finished and move-in ready, with floors, bathrooms, cabinetry, and top-notch appliances.
Amenities will include a swimming pool, a state of the art gym, a spa and massage treatment area, a yoga garden, a BBQ area with summer kitchen features, indoor/outdoor social room, a multi-purpose area, a screening room / theater, a music room, and a sky terrace. Community bicycles will be available for residents.
“Spark is all about a genuine boutique experience. It’s all about sophistication without monumental pretentiousness. It’s all about luxury on a human scale. The project’s mix of amenities was conceived with those key guiding principles,” said Goldenberg.
Architectural firm Behar Font & Partners, P.A., will design the project, further consolidating a working relationship that already spans three projects currently developed by Spider: Spark, a high-end, 27-storey tower located at the heart of Edgewater; 25, a boutique, middle-end, 93-unit condo project, also in Edgewater; and OWN, a millennials-focused, 44-room boutique hotel in North Beach.

I really do love abstract art, Pollock and Mondrian were some of my favorites.
But this just looks like an infection.

That will be the ugliest podium in all of Miami… I am ashamed of Behar and Font producing this as well as the Design Review Board for letting crappy design like this get built in our city. Please, give that podium another look.

I’m afraid this distinction belongs to the SLS brickell

I agree with you 100% SLS Brickell has the ugliest podium in all of Miami, Broward, and West Palm. Looks like a 4 year old painted it.

I’ve been wondering… Do the developers of SLS Brickell intend to put an acrylic cover over that painting? The painting looks awful, but it would become awesome with an acrylic type of shine and some lightning effects.

when SLS first displayed renderings i thought they would be plexiglass colored strips that would add color and class…instead this looks like watercolor paint and my only hope is it fades fast and is replaced by something else. on the bright side… the landscaping is beautiful and the blue lights are a very nice touch….

Anything would be better, I would even be satisfied if they would put one of those billboards that say – this was taken by an iPhone. And yes you are right the lights are very nice.

I guess, but do you really think that is beautiful? I think it’s missing a “Spark” of creativity.

Anyone knows what happened to the low-rise new construction right next to the Biscayne Beach and Icon Bay? It reached fourth floor and died. Did the developer run out of money?

ok, so, prices starting at $500,000 / 955 sq ft. equals $523.56 per sq ft. for the smallest unit. So, if I own a direct bayfront unit with a view that cannot be obstructed in the future, my unit should be going for at least $750,000 and it is not. People with experience please point out my assumptions. Thank you.

Variety! That is one way to put it. This is not a school crit where we are trying to push a student along, this is real design that will be built and we have to live with for 50 years… It is ugly.
