Plaza on Brickell vs. 1060 Brickell
Closings began within weeks of each other. The location is about the same, with Plaza on Brickell and 1060 Brickell each residing just across the street from one another on Brickell Avenue. So, which condo development represents a better buying opportunity? Plaza on Brickell or 1060 Brickell?
About a month ago, I stepped foot into each condo development and was able to take a tour through both Plaza on Brickell and 1060 Brickell. Below are my thoughts. I’d love to hear the opinions of others who also have been able to tour each condo development.
Layouts & Functional Space – I felt that the closet space in the units at 1060 Brickell were much too small. I’ve heard this complaint from several others who have toured condo units at 1060 Brickell. A year-round resident likely won’t have enough closet space in a condo at 1060 Brickell. I was actually pleasantly surprised by the large walk-in closets in condos at Plaza on Brickell. Several of the 2 bedroom units at Plaza on Brickell actually have large closets in both of the bedrooms. I also really like the floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the corner units at Plaza on Brickell because lots of natural sunlight shines through.
Views – The views are about the same since neither are waterfront condo buildings. However, condos located on high floors looking east at Plaza on Brickell have fantastic direct bay views with views of Biscayne Bay, South Beach, Fisher Island and the Atlantic Ocean. I’d have to give the edge to Plaza on Brickell on views.
Condo Finishes – I was actually very impressed with the finishes of condo units at Plaza on Brickell. The kitchen finishes were especially great. I prefer the dark cabinets but everyone has their own preference. I thought I’d like the finishes at 1060 Brickell equally, if not more than the finishes at Plaza on Brickell, but this was not the case.
