Construction on the Venetian Causeway is still dragging on. Construction recently shifted to the south side, opening the completed northern side to traffic. Nice new sidewalks, lighting and some street parking are nearly complete.
According to Venetian Causeway Neighborhood Association head, Jack Hartog, the overall deadline for completion will miss its target date of the end of 2011 and should finish by February 2012. Hartog said that the delay is due to unexpected buried structures found at the outset of the project and FPL coordination issues.
The Venetian Causeway is a popular place for bikers and runners pounding the pavement and enjoying the beautiful views. Many of Miami Beach's most luxurious homes are located on the Venetian Islands. 27 E Dilido Drive on the Venetian Islands is the perfect picture of a 1936 Mediterranean Revival estate. Located on 106 feet of waterfront on Biscayne Bay, this 3,588 square foot house includes a marble entry courtyard, 20+ foot foyer with Spanish tiles and curved stairway. Five sets of French doors open to lush landscaping framing the elegant pool, spa, loggia and spectacular views of Star Island and South Beach. The second floor includes a master suite spanning the width of the home with mahogany floors and coral terrace. Contact me to learn more about Venetian Island homes for sale.
