All the latest neighborhood and real estate news from Curbed Miami...
STAR ISLAND— This week was Curbed Miami Renters Week, so here's a rental doozie. Notorious developer Thomas Kramer's Star Island mansion, which has been on the market, is now on the rental market too. A month's rent: $100,000/month.
SOUTH BEACH— The new Alchemist store in Lincoln Road's 1111 garage is almost done. It was designed by hometown architect Rene Gonzalez, with a Jugofresh juice bar by local-ish architect (she has a vacay place here) Zaha Hadid.
GOLDEN BEACH— Ricky Martin sold his beachfront house in Golden Beach for $12.8 million, a princely sum to be sure, but lots less than the $17 mill he once wanted for the place.
The latest hotel on South beach, The James Royal Palm, opened this week, but we got in just before the rush for a tour of the place during the last days of construction. It includes a huge sculptural wood grand staircase.
