57 Ocean Miami Beach – How Does it Compare to other Miami Beach Luxury Condos for Sale?
57 Ocean in Miami Beach was announced just a few months ago. The luxury condo comes at a peculiar time, as the condo inventory in Miami Beach is seeing a sharp increase and the market is experiencing a softening. Although 57 Ocean won’t be delivered until 2021, we reckon the development team must have enough confidence in the condo’s success to start building this luxury tower at this very moment. We therefore compared 57 Ocean with several other high-end new constructions around the beach and Surfside to see if 57 Ocean will offer true luxury.
First of all, what is luxury? It is a term, which is often lightly or too easily used in Miami real estate for everything that is above $300K in a desired residential area. As true Miami market analysts we designed a list of elements that are valued by our ultra-luxury condo buyers and a list of values that is often seen in condos that hold their value over time. These characteristics can be found in the table and include water views, balcony sizes, ceilings heights etc. Please check the data in the table and read our descriptions to learn more about 57 Ocean and how it compares to other just released luxury condos.
57 Ocean will offer 81 units ranging from 1,245 SF to 3,623 SF (This includes the Penthouses. Units can be combined to create larger living spaces) on a 1.46 acre site. The building will provide for unobstructed ocean views to the east, but there are high-rise condos North and South of the condo, which might obstruct some of the side views. Some of the smallest and the most affordable units will only face west and will not have any ocean views. It is therefore essential to choose a good line in the condo. Balconies are quite large for the unit sizes ranging from 33% to 50%+ of the interior sizes. The penthouses at 57 Ocean will have private garages, other than that there is no self parking or assigned parking, everyone will need to use the 24/7 valet services. The best line in the building is the 01 line that offers southeast views.
Asking prices here range between $1,200 per SF and $2,300 per SF with an average of $1,850 per SF. The 2 bedroom units in the back (West views) start selling for $1.5M and ocean facing 2 bedrooms plus den start selling at $3.2M. Units go up till $8M with 57 Ocean Penthouse prices upon request.

Monad Terrace is a brand new construction project with 59 units over two towers on a 1.6 acre lot. Units range between 2,027 and 14,000 SF with 2 till 5 bedrooms. 90% Of the building has west (Bayview) exposure, which is considered the premium view at Monad Terrace. You can see ocean water on the east side starting on the 6th floor, but these lines are not sold as water facing units, because the view is predominantly the buildings of South Beach, treetops, etc. To the north and the south of Monad Terrace there are condos.
Floor plans A and F are in the best position, directly on the water and are therefore considered the best lines in the condo. However, there are some great floor plans that are in the east section of the property with attractive prices. The penthouses are also a great value. Penthouse B has the longest private condo pool in South Beach, and offers 5,350 interior SF and 7697 exterior SF.
Monad Terrace’ selling points:
- Design Features: The Sawtooth honeycomb glass curtain walls, 12,000 SF Lagoon and Vertical landscaping are among the most notable design features. Jean Nouvel is the architect and he is the only Pritzker winning architect to do a residential building in South Beach.
- Finishes: JDS Development is known to delivered a very high level of finish.

Comparing all the condos with one another, we need to mention that most condos (except for Fendi) are in pre-construction and therefore finishes are hard to judge at this moment. Some development teams are better than others and have a better track record. Call me (+1.305.508.0899) for more details on this!
Whatever condo provides most value depends on your own personal wishes as well. Eighty Seven Park has strong selling points, but maybe you want to be more South, closer to where the action is. Fendi is a very well finished condo, but maybe you want a brand new condo. 57 Ocean offers superb ocean views, but maybe you want to self park your condo or prefer a fully finished pre-construction condo. Monad terrace offers the most affordable prices per SF, but this condo is not selling ocean views.
