Ross’s Comments – What you Need to Know about Oceana Bal Harbour
The developer, Consultatio led by Eduardo Costantini, has brought together an amazing team to collaborate on the project, including architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia, interior designer Piero Lissoni, landscape designer Enzo Enea, and world renowned artist, Jeff Koons.
Situated on the 5.5 acres former oceanfront site of the Bal Harbour Beach Club, Oceana Bal Harbour will offer a combination of modern architecture and design, art, gardens and 400 feet of beach.
Due to the location and positioning of the buildings, the residences will offer some of the best unobstructed flow through, sunrise to sunset or ocean to bay, living experiences in Miami.
With only 240 units, the scope of the amenities is impressive, including expansive green space, clay tennis courts, a secure gated entrance, private pool and beach side dining, an Olympic style lap pool, private storage for every unit, and even a designated Shabbat elevator.
One of my favorite features of the residences are the immense terraces ranging from 6.5 to 11.5 feet (2 to 3.5 metres) in depth, allowing residents to create a synergy between the outdoors and indoors.
The upper penthouse units have an asking price of $29.5 million for 9,370 sf (870 m2) of living space and close to 10,000 feet of outdoor space, including a private lap pool, spa and outdoor kitchen.
Rental Policy - Owners may rent their units up to two (2) times per year with a minimum term of six (6) months. Leases are subject to association approval.

The Village of Bal Harbour is located on the northern tip of Miami Beach and covers an area of 0.6 square miles. On August 14, 1946 the Village was incorporated and the first Council elected. From the beginning, the Village was envisioned as a modern community that would maintain exceptionally high standards, provide superior services and foster civic pride.
Bolstered by Miami’s post war prosperity, Bal Harbour’s growth escalated with the rapid sale of residential lots, the development of community resources and the construction of hotels. In the 1950′s, Bal Harbour and Miami Beach were considered America’s Riviera, a magnet for the era’s top musicians and entertainers. Frank Sinatra and his “Rat Pack” frequented the Americana’s Carnival Supper Club. Bal Harbour’s hotels quickly became the chosen destination for countless dignitaries, celebrities, and presidents.
The Bal Harbour Shops are a 500,000 square foot, open-air shopping mall, anchored by Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue department stores. With over one hundred top designer boutiques and fashion designers, including DSquared2, Richard Mille, Chanel, Dolce & Gabana, Fendi, Bonpoint, Prada and others, it is considered to comparable to Rodeo Drive, or the streets of Milan, London, or Paris. There is also a large selection of the finest restaurants, outdoor cafes, and bistros, with menus offering Italian, French, Japanese, and American cuisines.
