South of Fifth Condo Map

The neighborhood atmosphere South of Fifth Street in Miami Beach, Florida is enviable with its tree-lined walkways, innovative restaurants and views of Biscayne Bay, Government Cut and the Atlantic Ocean. While towering condominium buildings ring the shaded lush pathways enjoyed by joggers, rollerbladers and dog-walkers, the South Pointe ambience remains cozy and relaxed. SoFi began its recent renaissance in 1987 when John Hinson built South Pointe Towers, the first high-rise luxury condo in SoFi. The 25-story structure on the site of an old dog track cost Hinson $7 million. Soon thereafter, Thomas Kramer, a German commodities broker turned land developer, purchased $100 million worth of land south of Fifth Street. His dream was to recreate the canal-laced ambiance of Portofino, Italy. In 1997, the Portofino Tower Condos rose from the 3.44-acre Alaska Parcel. This waterfront development and other parcels were purchased by the Related Group from Kramer. The group planned a reduced-density development that reserved for the city a parcel of parkland, South Pointe Park. The Yacht Club at Portofino, The Murano at Portofino, the Murano Grande, and the Icon Miami Beach soon followed. The Apogee was Related’s latest and last SoFi achievement – an ultra-luxe, 67-unit condominium with $4 to $15 million price tags. The Murano at Portofino features exquisite European cuisine at La Piaggia, Joe’s stone crab’s serves up claws across the street, and Prime 112 has the best meat on the block – just a few of the world-class restaurants in the SoFi district…and just one of the reasons to make SoFi your home or home away from home.
