Elon Tweets Miami Tunnels; Miami Beach’s Firestone Shop-Cum-Diner is Almsot Done

A MIAMI SHOUTOUT FROM ELON: When Mayor Suarez tweeted Elon Musk about how awesome it would be for the Boring Company to build high-tech tunnels in Miami, Musk said if Suarez and the Governor wanted it done, “we will do it.” Whether the Mayor was just being a bit of a fanboy for the tech genius, who responded like any good entrepreneur, or perhaps this is the beginning of a serious transportation proposal for Miami, is yet to be seen.

Palm Beach Regency Brought Exquisitely Up-To-Date Hits the Market for $17.8M

At the dawn of the new year, just nine days ago, this extensively renovated Palm Beach regency-style property, hit the market for an eye-watering $17.8 million. Originally built in 1970, every inch of the house looks like it’s brand-spankin’ new, decorated gorgeously, to the umpteenth degree. It’s listed by Christopher Leavitt, one of the brokers on the short-lived reality show Million Dollar Listing Miami (boy that feels like a million years ago), which explains what he’s doing with his time these days. He must have absconded from Miami. Zillow says most of his listings are that-a-way.

South-of-Fifth Urban Jungle Ground-Floor Condo Feels Like a House, With Neighbors On Top

This first floor unit in a small residential building tucked away in the urban, dense, and rather jungly South-of-Fifth part of South Beach has a lot of the privacy-oriented benefits of a house while being part of a condo building.

$28 Million Fisher Island Penthouse is A White & Turquoise Palace

This lavish, 6,100 square foot penthouse, directly overlooking the ocean on uber-private Fisher Island, has been on and off the market since the beginning of last year. Done up in white, cream, and very light beiges, along with random bursts of turquoise, the unit was on the market for the first four months of 2019, then off, and has been back on again for about $3.5 million less since December. Is all that white (and the turquoise) a bit much, or is it perfect for an era of ultra-luxe quarantining for the ultra-rich. You decide.

This lavish spread on Fisher Island, which has been completely done up by Italian designer Augusto Busnelli, is currently on the market for an impressive $14.5 million.
