After the successful sellout of Tower 1 and demolition underway, South-Florida based developer Habitat Groupannounces the launch of sales for Smart Brickell Tower 2, with sales led by Cervera Real Estate in Miami. Upon completion, Smart Brickell will feature three towers integrating smart use, smart design and smart technology.
After a successful sellout of Tower 1, the launch of Tower 2 adds more than 30,000 square feet of new inventory to the bustling West Brickell area with prices ranging from $300,000 to $600,000. Tower 2 is slated for groundbreaking in Q4 2019 and will be located in Brickell at 239 SW 9th Street.
“Smart Brickell is setting the tone for the kind of developments Miami needs. Buyers are looking for flexibility and ease of use from their properties and Smart Brickell offers just that. We are seeing that the rental restrictions in most condos are limiting for a lot buyers that want to have more options. After successfully selling out Tower 1, Smart Brickell is proof that Miami has demand for this kind of project,” said Alicia Cervera Lamadrid of Cervera Real Estate. “The development has been well received by buyers in both local and international markets.”
Sitting on the 1.23-acre development area, Tower 2 is a 25-story tower that will consist of 50 hotel rooms and 50 condos with one and two bedroom floor plans from 558 to 1,117 square feet. The building will follow the same design and amenities as Tower 1 and optimize space and size with fully finished and custom furnished units by renowned interior design firm Arquitectonica.
Unit owners will be able to rent out their condos up to 24 times a year using popular home sharing applications and programs such as Airbnb or participate in an optional two-year, fixed annual leaseback program that ensures two years rent at a fixed rate.
Smart Brickell gives residents and guests the opportunity to experience integrated technology and amenities specifically designed to spark interaction and efficiency, acting as a gateway to Smart Living in the City. The condo residences will be equipped with Smart Wi-Fi enabled features to compliment the look and feel of futuristic living. These Smart Tech features will include Nest, home and personal assistant Alexa by Amazon, Bosch appliances, Lifx lighting features, a mobile concierge, electric parking spaces and more.
The building itself will also adhere to LEED certified regulations, the most widely used green building rating system in the world. The certification process ensures healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings. Highlights of the project include a stunning amenity deck with a landscaped recreational area and expansive terrace, two resort-style pools with a lap are and sun deck, a sky fitness center, an organic café on the ground level, a spa and fully equipped fitness center, a rooftop lounge bar and a fully equipped business center. Designed by well-known architect Hernando Carrillo with concept and branding by world-renowned firm, Gensler, Smart Brickell is slated for completion in 2022.
“It is very exciting to see the momentum this second sales launch is bringing to the project,” said Santiago Vanegas, founder, CEO and president of Habitat Group. “Smart Brickell will be the only development of its kind in the area. Local and international buyers are recognizing how this type of project will enhance their lifestyles.”
