The Best 5 Condos for Sale in South of Fifth – The 2019 Update
The below is a list of the best South of Fifth condos for sale in 2019! Remember it is the unit by unit analysis that matters and although we may be general advocates of a building, it does not mean we like all the units. We understand all the different lines, so it is important to recognize the good units (corners units and those with water views) from the less desired units (‘back facing’ units, low floor units or units with a bad floor plan). The below properties are in no specific order. Please know that we have a dedicated Continuum South Beach webpage that focusses on the namesake condo as well as on the general South of Fifth market

Continuum on South Beach
The resort-style complex offers 521 units divided over the North and the South Tower. Continuum provides for a unique living experience, because of its ideal location on the most southern point of South of Fifth. It enjoys spectacular water views and offers many very large units, which is desired with buyers. The Continuum condo is known for amazing amenities and first class services. The north tower opened its doors in 2008, while the south tower has been open since 2002. For the South Tower, the best lines are the large corner units overlooking the government cut and the Atlantic Ocean, which are lines: 06 (Floors 5-21), Line 05 (Floors 22-29) and Line 04 (Floors 30-39). The best line in the North Tower is either the 01 or the 02 line above the 22nd floor. Both are expansive, corner units with superb water views. Continuum units start selling just below the $1M mark, for smaller, low floor units without any spectacular views. Click on the button below to see all Continuum units for sale in each tower

321 Ocean is an extreme boutique condo with only 21 residences in a prime location. This is a perfect condo for those who want to be low-key and value their privacy. The brand new building might be classified as a primary residence, which is rather unusual for the Miami Beach market in which most properties are investments or used as a second or third residence. This is the only brand new condo in South of Fifth that is right on the sand (literally a few feet). This project offers two towers, one is located on ocean drive with views of the street and one is located right on the beach with spectacular water views. The best lines would be the 2-story Beach Villas (200 or 201) or the Penthouse. Units at 321 Ocean range between $5.5M and $26M. The PH which sold for $26M, reached the highest sales price per SF ever achieved in South of Fifth.

The $750K unit is for a low-floor, 1000 SF unit. The best unit at Murano is the 01 (A) Line. This line is the largest unit (3 beds and 3,365 SF) in the condo that covers the northern top of the condo providing for Bay, City and Ocean views.
