Photo Tour of 900 Biscayne Bay

May 10, 2008 by Lucas Lechuga

900 Biscayne Bay valet area

This past week, I had the opportunity to take a very extensive tour of 900 Biscayne Bay. I couldn’t wait to see if 900 Biscayne Bay held up to its high expectations. I took a ton of pictures that day and wanted to share them with everyone. Above, you see the nice water feature that greets you as you drive into the valet area at 900 Biscayne Bay.

900 Biscayne Bay lobby

The lobby at 900 Biscayne Bay is two stories. The first story is for guests entering off the street while the second story welcomes those entering through the valet area. The grand spiral staircase at 900 Biscayne Bay, in the photo above, takes you to the second level.

900 Biscayne Bay resort pool

The Infinity-edge, resort-style pool at 900 Biscayne Bay was beautiful. I’m sure residents will make full use of the large bar behind the pool while sunning themselves as well. There’s also a fire pit and hot tub available on the same level.

900 Biscayne Bay lap pool

The lap pool was closed, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to get some laps in while my clients were talking about the great amenities that 900 Biscayne Bay has to offer.

900 Biscayne Bay water feature

Another great water feature pictured above. This is the entry-way to the amenities found at 900 Biscayne Bay shown in the pictures below.

900 Biscayne Bay theater room

Here we have the theater room at 900 Biscayne Bay. It’s the best theater room that I’ve ever seen in a condo building in Miami. It has a 153 inch screen and seating for 35 people. I doubt many people will actually make use of this room but it’s still quite impressive to have in your building.

900 Biscayne Bay sound system

Many of the rooms found on this level at 900 Biscayne Bay come equipped with the above technology. Mount your iPod and enjoy the sounds of your own tunes throughout the room.

900 Biscayne Bay club room

The club room at 900 Biscayne Bay with a grand piano and kitchen.

900 Biscayne Bay conference room

The conference room at 900 Biscayne Bay.

900 Biscayne Bay spa entrance

The entry-way into the men’s and women’s spa at 900 Biscayne Bay which is each equipped with a steam room, sauna and hot tub.

900 Biscayne Bay spa hot tub

Tell me that it doesn’t look inviting. This is the hot tub in the women’s spa at 900 Biscayne Bay. I’m hoping that this isn’t the last time that I get invited into the women’s spa at 900 Biscayne Bay. In my mind, I already had my shoes and socks off, but unfortunately the tour wasn’t over.

900 Biscayne Bay spa

Another shot of the women’s spa.

900 Biscayne Bay fitness center

The fitness center at 900 Biscayne Bay was a nice size. It wasn’t overly impressive but it had plenty of free weights, machines and cardio equipment. I would have preferred a view of the bay to the east, however.

900 Biscayne Bay Miami Condos

I took a look at about 3 condos at 900 Biscayne Bay that day. Here’s a shot of one of the kitchens with dark cabinetry. Another kitchen I saw that day had beige colored cabinets.

900 Biscayne Bay east view

Here’s an east view from one of the condos I saw at 900 Biscayne Bay. I think this was a shot from the 34th floor.

Overall, I felt that 900 Biscayne Bay exceeded my expectations. I think Pedro Martin and Terra Group delivered an outstanding condo development. Of all the new condo buildings that I’ve been in that have been completed within the past three years in Miami, 900 Biscayne Bay is on an entirely different level. The quality of the building is unsurpassed of the new condo buildings that I’ve seen. I haven’t been in Asia yet but I think that will be the only other recently finished condo building in Miami that may be able to measure up to 900 Biscayne Bay. The quality does come at a price, however. Expect to pay more than you’ll find at Marina Blue or Ten Museum Park, but like I said, the quality is unsurpassed.

Who do I get a loan from for this GORGEOUS CONDO? I have a 70% DTi ratio and my FICO is 590. That should be enough to secure 1 million dollars with 120% LTV right? I will be using the cash to make my payment so I can flip this place for triple the money in 3 months! WHOOO HOO!

Flipping condos pays WAY BETTER than that stupid hospital job I have. I wish I didn’t spend all that money and time and effort earning a worthless degree. Question is, who are all the poor suckers that DON’T flip condos for a living?!

DA – I consider an infinity edge pool one where you look at the pool and the edge fades into the background such as next to another body of water giving the illusion it is all part of one body of water. This one doesn’t do that….

I like 900 Biscayne above everything else in the area. The ammenities are top notch as well, this is what you should expect to get on other buildings with high maintenance costs.

Looks nice although I’m not big on “spas” in a condo… I think everything else came out great. Hope some Segafredo/Novecento type places move into the area to give the area a nice vibe. It’s got the buildings, now it needs a soul.

DA – I thought an infinity edge pool is where the pool edge falls off into the horizon which gives the illusion that it goes on forever esp if it is against the background of a large body of water….it looks like it is one body of water. This isn’t that. I don’t know what you call it, but it ain’t an infinity edge pool in my book unless the other edges create that effect. See wikipeida

Dear Mo, The secret is SAVING. You can have any kind of job, but if you plan and be careful with your money, you can buy the dream home of your choice. Do not be bitter. You can still get there. But for you to be having a FICO score of 590 shows that you have not been responsible with your money. It is a good start to earn a better credit rating than that. I bought my first dwelling in the united states in NYC when I was just making $40,000 a year in 2001. A second home in… Read more »

Superlative building I must say. Everyone who saw inside has nothing but praise for 900 Biscayne. I heard Daddy Yankee bought a unit there (not that it would make any difference to me).

Hi DLR,
I totally agree. The gym should have faced the bay, especially given their location advantage.
The best views of any gym I have seen is from the 1800 Club. Quantums Gym does not have views either.

I would be surprised if a 2/2 in 360 condo in North Bay Village isn’t sub 300K very soon. That’s a building you might want to keep on your list. Nice building and views, immediate neighborhood is crap., but very close to everything.

When hurricane season comes around, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some vortex develop where the palm trees and furniture get catapaulted through that breezeway cutout in the middle of the 900 building. That would be a youtube video worth posting, 900 furniture landing on the AA Arena. Seriously though, if you aren’t used to S FL weather, you’ll be in for a shock how these wind patterns wrap around large buildings. You could feel 10-20 MPH on the street, and that hole in the middle of the building could see 60 MPH. If you’ve ever walked through the breezeway… Read more »

It is an “infinity edge” what you are not seeing is it merging with a larger body of water…but the fact that the “troughs” that catch water are underwater and pump the water back into the pool technically qualify it as an infinity edged pool.

Oh silly DA (just kidding), that is a perimeter overflow pool, not an infinity edge pool: Negative Edge Pool Negative edge pools are getting more common and require an expert to build. They are also referred to as infinity swimming pools or infinity egde pools. These are designed to look like the pool extends all the way out to the horizon. The mechanics and engineering of infinity pools cannot be compromised. Perimeter Overflow Pool This would be a pool where the water level in the pool is the same as the top of the decking. Around the pool perimeter is… Read more »

Building looks great, BUT

-Traffic around that area sucks (espc during Heat games)
-access to freeway is bad
-bums everywhere
-area will take at least 3 years to develop
-wouldn’t want to be walkin around at night

-would rather buy something on Brickell or safer area along biscayne

Nobody ever posts street level photos or neighborhood photos of this area for foreign investors. I wonder why?
You cannot even walk more than six blocks to the west w/o being in Overtown.

The building look nice but thsi building started sellign at the boom hype so it was already overpriced. Now it’s not worth as much and prices should be dropping as they are in TMP and MB. By the way, TMP appears to have it gym finally built after a year. The pool deck is ok different but the units atleast the 1 bd and the 2bd on the west side are WAY overpriced and really not that great in a layout and very small. Only the east side units are decent but those are overpriced. Another thing to tak enote… Read more »

Wouldn’t be surprising if that’s true. Have you followed the Shenanigans going on with Cynergi on this blog? Here’s the big problem. Marble countertops, Stainless Steel, wood floors, nice views etc. only add full value in an up market. In a down market, people buy on price alone so it’s not surprising to see developer’s strip out a building. The realization is hitting that you’ll have a much better chance selling a cheap bare condo than an upscale condo. I’m sure a lot of these guys are expecting massive walkaways, so why not deliver as little as you can if… Read more »

My point is, descriptions need to be accurate. Like saying a home has wood floors when it is really pergo. Things get overhyped on the upside, not the downside.

Wild Bill-
You are correct. But its not just 6 blocks away. In reality, this area is really bad just 1 block away. All of those bums and drug dealers filter out of that Metrorail station directly behind 900 Biscayne.

Just a few comments: (1) The real estate price bottom (at least in real dollar terms) is years away. In nominal terms, it will probably hit in 2010, not this year or next, but the rate of decline will ease next year compared to this year. Markets like Chicago will follow the rest of the country albeit not to the extremes of FL, CA and Las Vegas. Peak prices may come back in 2015…it is anybody’s guess, but a range of 2012-2020 is reasonable (I hope it doesn’t go beyond 2020!). (2) The high end market is already showing weakness… Read more »

Renter Tom –

The high end ($1M+) waterfront condo market in South Beach isn’t showing “weakness”. Check out the closings of condos for more than $1M during the last couple of months at Apogee and Continuum (and Murano at Portofino, Il Villagio and Setai).

Samson – The high end IN CERTAIN NEIGHBORHOODS (whether that is SoBe, NYC, etc.) will be the last to fall. Overall, in the US, the high end is getting hit though. No property will be immune just like all properties pretty much rose during the bubble.

Mo – Are you serious or just joking? I can buy most anything, including SoBe, in cash. But I worked hard for my $ and am not going to be reckless. I have been looking for a place to buy for several months but choose to rent for 1/2 the price….I’ll wait for the idoits to get taken to the cleaners then buy when the prices drop. Hopefully, you’re heavily invested in FL housing, since I’ll wait for one of your’s after you go bankrupt.

RenterTOM. You are 90% correct, but the fact about peak prices coming back make me giggle like a school girl. lololol. Don’t know what is so hard to understand. Only reason prices went so high is because people were buying knowing they can sell it to the next greater fool for more money and so on. Eventually prices got so high that no greater fools came along and the bubble popped. Peak prices will never come back.

The beach isn’t immune to this fall as well. Look at Murano Grande. 2 bedrooms are down to $600,000. There wasn’t anything less than $900,000 12 months ago.
They will eventually hit to around $400,000.

Christopher@HousingFEAR – Talking about peak prices (I meant in nominal dollar terms, not real dollars) and I was also referring to the US overall, not Miami, South Florida in particular. The Miami market will have a longer drawn out process then say Chicago. If Chicago goes down 25% that will be a lot! If South Florida goes down 50% that will be a lot too! Overall, the return to the peak nominal dollar pricing in the US will be 2012-2020….depends on how large the drop is at the bottom (hence the large range).

Of course real estate is an EXCELLENT investment people! Look at Donald Trump, he’s only been bankrupt like 2 times….errr, okay, 3 times…..oh wait, he might have to declare bankruptcy again, but after that he should be good. So only 4 times has he had to declare bankruptcy! I mean who else can say that? I might have to declare bankruptcy again if this condo thing doesn’t pan out…but the premise is solid.
