South Beach is a hot place in more ways than one; hot weather, hot people and hot condos for sale. Miami Beach may be a city that has a history of luxury condos, but the community of South Beach pioneers luxury for the entire island. South Beach is generally considered to be south of 17th Street in Miami Beach all the way down to the southern tip of the Southeastern Florida barrier island. Though South Beach is a community, it has sub-community areas like the world famous Ocean Drive located in the heart of South Beach right on the water, South of Fifth which is a sub-community south of Fifth Street and the west coast of South Beach that is largely residential.
South Beach condos range in size and style but the premier condos offer amenities that set the bar for condos in South Florida. Amenities like state-of-the-art gyms, luxurious pools and pool decks, lush landscaping, elegant lobbies, garage parking, valet services, 24-hour security, spas and saunas. Condos like Continuum, Apogee South Beach and ICON Miami Beach may offer even more amenities being that they are considered the upper-echelon of luxury South Beach condos. South Beach condos are known for their beautiful exterior designs and massive size like Portofino Tower which is 44-stories tall and has a unique castle-like architectural design.
