Continuum I and Continuum II were the winners for best increase in price per square foot over the last five years.

Continuum I and Continuum II South of Fifth Neighborhood in Miami Beach

Which Continuum South of Fifth Miami Beach building is the best in value?

This is not an easy question to answer.  Both Continuum buildings are located in what’s considered to be the best location in Miami Beach at the tip edge of South Point, 50 South Pointe Drive and 100 South Pointe Drive. Both of the buildings are managed well and share the same amenities.  Some of our clients prefer Continuum II more because it has only 203 units and the building was completed 2008 where Continuum I is a little older from 2002 and with a total of 318 units.  However Continuum I units have views on the south side of the building that are just unbelievable.  It’s really a matter of personal taste.

In the both Continuum buildings there were two units that sold last week, both sold for similar prices per square foot.

Continuum I “07” line closed for $8,400,000 which came to $2,843 per square foot.

Continuum II “01” line sold for $9,500,000 which came to $2,748 per square foot.

In my professional opinion, I personally think both of the buildings will continue to hold value and be top performers in the Miami Beach real estate market.  When purchasing a condo in our area it’s important to take into consideration that some buildings perform better than others and that often reflects in the overall pricing.  It’s also important to take this information down to a micro level within the building and understand that some lines and layouts can also have different performance rates.

What else is interesting in South of Fifth Miami Beach?

In addition to the buildings and information above, there are a few new interesting projects that are in the process of construction: Marea South Beach, 321 Ocean, Glass and Ocean One.  Unfortunately for newcomers to the market, most of the units are already sold, however there are few left in the price ranges of $7m to the low $8m.

We will not be able to see the official closed data until the buildings are completed and properties closed.  I predict though, once these projects are completed and start closing, the South of Fifth neighborhood will start setting new records in closed pricing and the market in this neighborhood will experience an even higher price per square foot trend.
