Looking for a little house for your Granny that's got space to tie up her speed boat out back while being conveniently close to the highway for those last-minute trips to the hospital, with an adjacent (but most importantly, separate) unit for yourself to use while in town? Have we got you covered?
The Residences at 1428 Brickell were officially unveiled last week by development firm Ytech with a bunch of generally similar posts dropping on various real estate and business news outlets around South Florida, based on a press release emailed to everyone by the developer's public relations team slightly earlier that day, just like countless unveilings have done before.
A few days ago, the Wall Street Journal published a tour of real estate investor Robert Rivani's Beverly Hills Home, a place inspired by a curious mashup of Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Alice in Wonderland.
Last week, the Miami Beach Design Review Board approved Stuart Miller's latest Star Island mega-mansion, a gigantic mashup of a Bond villain lair, the Batcave, a Balinese resort, and even the faint whiff of a brutalist office building thrown for sheer shock and awe.
