North Bay Village, nestled between Miami and Miami Beach, is undergoing a significant transformation, evolving from a tranquil island community into a bustling hub of residential and commercial growth. This shift is underscored by the development of over 3,000 new residential units and 1 million square feet of commercial and retail space. Adding to the area’s appeal is the announcement of a new soccer academy and AFA training facility led by Lionel Messi, promising to elevate North Bay Village’s profile.

Notable developers, including the Continuum Company, Shoma Group, S2 Development, Sunbeam Properties, Horizon Development, and Riviera Horizons, are driving this revitalization. Their projects aim to blend lifestyle amenities, natural beauty, and urban convenience, catering to the evolving demands of residents and investors alike. Below are several notable developments being spearheaded by the developers mentioned above.

Continuum Club & Residences, a project by the Continuum Company in partnership with Aksoy Holdings and designed by Arquitectonica, is one of several standout developments. Located at 1755 JFK Causeway, this 32-story luxury condominium is set to offer 198 residences with interiors by Durukan Design, including one to four-bedroom homes and penthouses ranging from 800 to 4,000 square feet. With prices starting just under $1,000,000 to $4,500,000 (not including penthouses) and sales launching in December 2023, the project is expected to break ground in Q4 2024 and reach completion by Q4 2027. Amenities are designed to cater to a luxurious lifestyle, featuring a waterfront resort pool, a marina, and over 60,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities.

  1. While I hated its excusivity, NBV was quite a place.

    Now, like the rest of Miami, over-developed and ruined.

    Feels like all the new luxury hi-rise buildings will remove the charm and laid back atmosphere of NBV

  3. “There’s too much building going on. Overdevelopment!”

    “Prices are unaffordable. There’s not enough supply!”
