Ugo Colombo and Luxury Miami High Rises

Ben Moss recently wrote an article exploring lavish high rises developed by Ugo Colombo for The News Funnel and he explores some reasons why Ugo Colombo is regarded by many as the premier residential developer in South Florida.

Ugo Colombo “has built a total of four luxury buildings in Miami including Bristol Tower, Santa Maria, Grovenor House and Epic,” begins Moss. “The resale value of condos in his buildings is among the highest in the submarkets in which those buildings are located.”

Moss goes on to explore three of the best available penthouses for sale among Ugo Colomob’s projects including:

2627 S Bayshore Drive, Penthouse 3002


1643 Brickell Avenue, Unit 4302


2127 Brickell Ave #2401-2

Construction Set To Begin on Brickell Flatiron

ugo-colombo-brickell-flatironThe CMC Group is in the final stages of preparation to begin construction on their long-anticipated Brickell Flatiron building in downtown Miami.

The developer filed a 25-page Declaration of Condominium for the project in November, with maintenance fees coming in at just above 70-cents per square foot. A permit to remove and relocate old growth trees has been approved by the city, and the popular bar and eatery Baru Urbano served its’ last patrons earlier this year. A parking lot that still functions on the Flatirons land will close at the end of the week, and demolition and construction will begin soon after.

The CMC Group bought the land in October of 2013 for $21 million, and the project’s completion date is currently expected to be 2017.
