Flatiron Park Sold, Will Be Developed Into Shopping

Flatiron Park, a narrow triangle of land in the center of Brickell that I actively followed and promoted as a park back in the good old days when I was the editor of Curbed Miami, has been sold. For the past five or so years, part of the triangle-shaped piece of land was the site of the sales center for Brickell Flatiron, a condo tower which has recently been completely sold out, with the rest being used as a green space with a landscape design by Raymond Jungles.

"Miami Modern" here) house sprawls over a half-acre lot, and includes a unique breezeway or loggia that encloses a courtyard-like lawn area in the back yard, offering plenty of protected outdoor living space, all for $2.599 million. Located at 500 NE 96th St, and listed a few days ago, the house was built in 1950, and has quite a few original details intact, including terrazzo floors and even the brightly colored tile bathrooms that are so emblematic of the era yet very often torn out.

Former Site of the Bal Harbour Yacht Club Lists for a Whopping $65 Million

Sadly demolished, the Bal Harbour Yacht Club was a magnificent piece of subtropical modern architecture designed by seminal South Florida architect Alfred Browning Parker, in the heart of the exclusive community of Bal Harbour, Florida. Its just-as-magnificent peninsula site survives, with water on three sides and the underwater rights to the lagoon which that peninsula creates, and is now for sale as a private home site for a whopping $65 million.

This little jewel box in the form of Art Deco known as the Streamline Moderne style a few blocks south of 41st Street in Miami Beach, hit the market on Friday for $2.5 million. There may be loads of small deco hotels and apartment buildings from the 1930s on the beach, but a pristine single family home is a much rarer fish indeed. The Depression decade wasn't the best time for mansion building.

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.

Midcentury Subtropical Modern House in the Grove With a Tower Wants $3 Million

Built in 1959, this subtropical modern Coconut Grove house at 3571 N Prospect Drive was renovated by a "world renowned" architect in 2008, according to the real estate listing. I wrote about it back in 2018 on the Big Bubble, and have a hunch I also might have done a write-up on Curbed Miami back in the day, although I can't find that old piece. Either way, it's a treat.

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. Yes, you have people living above and next to you, but with your own sidewalk-facing entrance and two private terraces, it doesn't really feel like it.

Stately Morningsider, Eclectically Decorated, Hits the Market for $3.4M

This immaculately preserved and restored palazzo in the heart of Morningside, the City of Miami's first historic district, was built in 1926. It hist the market on Sunday for $3,399,000, and in the intervening time it must have had a pretty exciting existence, if the bright and eclectic interior is any evidence. Located at 5600 NE 6th Avenue, the house is in the heart of the neighborhood.
