Miami has seen a rapid increase in its number of luxury condo developments in recent years. Specifically, the number of condos sold in the Miami area above $5 million has more than doubled between 2016 and 2021. As demand has increased, developers have continually sought to push the boundaries of what a condo building can offer.
For example, consider the Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles Beach. The development features an integrated car elevator within the building’s interior, meaning that residents can literally drive their cars into their units. Condos additionally feature “sky garages” that can fit between two to eleven cars, depending on the floor plan.
Put simply, luxury condo buyers are looking for some of the most distinguished amenities that money can buy and equally impressive living spaces. Thus, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most expensive condo buildings in Miami to provide an evocative picture of some of the world’s most opulent and cutting-edge residential towers.
