The “Billion Dollar Loser” of WeWork, Adam Newmann, Has Bought Two Bal Harbour Properties for $44 Million

Adam Newmann, the long-haired, Kabbalah-following, enigmatic, and egotistical false prophet of WeWork, who was ousted from the company with a severance package that made him a billionaire, has just bought two prime pieces of Bal Harbour real estate for $44 million. Located next to the $65 million peninsula of land where the Bal Harbour Yacht Club used to be, these two properties were purchased from the same investor, Joseph Imbesi, who is parceling off the grand old club's formal landholdings and carefully selling them off.

Adorable Little Turquoise & Pink Key Largo Cottage Lists for $437,000

This absolutely heart melting little charmer of a cottage in Key Largo just hit the market for $437,000. Located on a landlocked lot that's small, but big enough for a groovy Astroturf back yard complete with chikee hut, the midcentury cottage has obviously been lovingly taken care of by its current owners, complete with neon turquoise paint job, with hot pink trim.

Modern House With Two-Story Front Door & Plant Filled Atrium is $14.9 Million

This 9,092 square foot house, with a really pretty impressive 8 bedrooms and eleven bathrooms, has a few things that make it stand out from the pack. Listed for $14.9 million in the heart of Golden Beach, it was listed for sale a few months ago for $15.5 million and has already seen a price cut to its current figure.

Midcentury Miami Shores House With “Panoramic” Loggia Lists For $2.6M

In the heart of Miami Shores, this roomy midcentury modern (a.k.a. "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.

Miami Beach Art Deco House is Your Own Little Ocean Liner For $2.5 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.

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.
