First condo since recession breaks ground on Brickell

Is the floor shaking, or is another condo breaking ground? With three new projects breaking ground last Wednesday alone, and several scheduled for the next few weeks, Miami’s residential real estate recovery is charging full steam ahead. Cranes are currently building 44 towers in downtown Miami, as construction returns to 2004 levels.

The Bond - Aerial ViewThe Bond on Brickell, set to rise at 1080 Brickell, is the first condo to go up on Brickell Avenue since the recession—an address that is quickly becoming a rare luxury. Domestic and international buyers fueling Miami’s new wave of development are attracted to luxury urban living, and The Bond plans to deliver.

The 44-story, 328-unit tower is bringing a sleek look to Brickell, taking inspiration from London’s famous Bond Street, and featuring a series of limited edition photos captured by celebrated photographer, Terry O’Neill. Award-wining Loguer Design will be designing stylish interior and exterior spaces, featuring hand-stitched leather and suede walls, classic tufted sofas, and mid-century modern furniture. Condos will include 1-, 2- and 3-bedrooms, as well as expansive lofts and penthouse units. In addition to its exclusive 1080 Brickell address, residents of The Bond will also have access to South Miami Avenue, a prime location for dining and entertainment.

Moreover, The Bond will also be home to Brickell’s newest landmark: an original, vintage British Telecom phone booth, restored by the building’s developers to museum-quality condition, and flown in from London. Ultimately, the iconic red box will be permanently displayed at the building’s Brickell Avenue entrance.
