Mei Miami Beach-Incredible Price Reductions

The Mei, Miami Beach, is a  new oceanfront condo building in a great location.  Constructions was just recently completed and closings are underway.  Because of current market conditions,  some original buyers are unable to close and the developer is taking back some inventory.

I am always analyzing the market looking for opportunities for my clients.  As I have written before, in my opinion, developer units are where the real buying opportunities lie.  Especially in these economic times, in most cases developers are very motivated to sell their inventory.  I find the opportunities are greater than short sales, foreclosures or bank owned properties.  

The Mei presents some very attractive units with a good amount of square footage and very aggressive pricing.  The Mei is considered a “boutique” building with on 134 residences in 21 stories.  The Mei is situated at the north end on Millionaires’ Row, 10 minutes form South Beach, 10 minutes from Bal Harbour, 20 minutes to international airports.

The units offer unobstructed views of the ocean and the intracoastal, the golf course La Gorce, Biscayne Bay and spectacular views of downtown Miami.  Designed by Hirsch Bedner, known for award wining projects around the world such as the Oriental Hotels. The building design hosts flowing water, crafted in limestone, teak and exotic fabrics from the east.

Mei will provide each resident Five Star Resort Services including:  

o Breathtaking lobby with 24 hour concierge and valet parking services 

o Tea Lounge

o  Zen library

o  Asian inspired spa, Yoga studio

o State of the art fitness facility with private massage rooms, steam room, lockers

o  An ocean view stunning pool deck where lagoon pools and tropical gardens create a hideaway on the ocean with an infinity         edge pool and a misting pool to delight all your senses. 

o  Mei will offer the most advanced cutting edge technology system included in each residence as standard:

o  21st century technology with Pre-wired and pre-installed fiber optic connections for: Satellite TV, Email boxes, Local and international telephone, voice mail service, wireless hi speed Internet, music and video library.

An outstanding feature of the units offered are the expansive wrap around balconies.  Even if you are situated on the west side of the building, the wrap around balcony offers you direct ocean views as well.

The units start at 1,148 square feet and  range up to 1,817 square feet.  I do receive many inquiries for spacious 2 bedroom oceanfront units in Miami Beach.  The developer is offering at the Mei today a 2 bedroom unit 1,374 square feet with another 664 square feet of balcony for around $580 square foot.  Prices not too long ago were around $1000 square foot.  How is that for an opportunity ! 

For those that are looking to buy an oceanfront condo in Miami Beach, the Mei is worth taking a look at.  

The expansive west views are spectacular…especially at night !


The library carries through the zen like design….

The pool has a gentle waterfall with with in pool seating overlooking the ocean….

The balconies wrap around the corner so direct oceanfront units will also appreciate the interesting west views.
