All the latest neighborhood and real estate news from Curbed Miami...
Star Island- Lisa Hochstein, an upstart on the Real Housewives of Miami, is planning a large, rather ostentatious house on Star Island. The only problem is there's an historic Mediterranean Revival house in the way, and preservationists are fuming.
Brickell- Pharrell Williams has listed his Brickell Avenue penthouse for $16.8 million, which is 4 mill more than he bought it for at the height of the last boom. Either he's overly optimistic about the place's market power, or prices really have returned to pre-recession levels.
Sunny Isles Beach- We never thought we'd see the day when celebrated High Architects with a capital A would be designing condos in oh-so ostentatious Sunny Isles for Russian oligarchs, but here we are. Starchitects Herzog & de Meuron's third Miami building will be a condo tower called Jade 4.
South Beach- Speaking of starchitects, the two firms in the lead for the massive Miami Beach Convention Center commission are Bjarke Ingels and Rem Koolhaas. Bjarke is doing two other Miami area projects at the moment, and Rem is doing one.
