Marina Blue Penthouse to be Featured in Season 4 of "Burn Notice"

March 3, 2010 by Lucas Lechuga

Burn Notice Miami

Earlier this afternoon, an episode for next season’s “Burn Notice” was filmed in Penthouse 5708 at Marina Blue.  The 4 bedroom/4 bathroom penthouse has 4,198 square feet of interior across two levels, 20-foot ceilings with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and panoramic views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and the Miami Beach skyline.  It offers what many would call the most spectacular view in all of Miami.

Penthouse 5708 has been on the market for 71 days at an asking price of $3.3M, or $786 per square foot.

They got to raise money to over the shortfall in HOA dues somehow but if you think this grasp at straws will prop the price up your in LA LA land the same as show.

The real Burn Notice is the fact that this Condo and those like it will be selling at $125 my early 2011.

The Ace; fair, balanced and unafraid for over six years.

SFBJ — A prominent Miami businessman and his wife have been charged with running a $135 million Ponzi scheme that targeted the Cuban-American community. Gaston E. Cantens and Teresita Cantens, founders and co-owners of Royal West Properties, a real estate development company, are the target of a lawsuit the Securities and Exchange Commission filed in Miami federal court. It is alleged they lured investors by promising that investments in their real estate business were safe and would provide annual returns of between 9 percent and 16 percent. When the real estate market tanked and owners began to default on their… Read more »

Enzo do you think owneratinfinity is Cuban? Is that why we should not just him?

One of the features that I like about Burn Notice is it identifies so many of the financially shaky/sketchy condos in the city. Last week’s episode – – maybe it was the week before – – featured some footage shot at Epic. I recall prior episodes were shot at that cancer cluster of condos across from the Big Fish.

Now it is the Marina Blue penthouse – – the “Mount Olympus” of Miami (quote adapted from Hollywood Homicide (2003)).

It is a cross between a death march and a perp walk.

I do not know why Lucas allows Gixxer 1000 to post on his Blog for his only response to intelligent posts are insults. But it one this to insult the average poster but quite another to insult the most insightful poster on the Blog namely the Ace and then to trump that by insulting the Host of the Blog is really going to far.

Instead lucas post all random post for the last few months with the exception of the Fannie Mae posts. “r.e. is no longer an “investment,”” Who cares? Lucas is a Realtor. I would assume this blog is to attract potential clients. Who give a shit if they buy the place as an investment or a place to live?

Gixxer 1000 — Good God, man, fisking every word of people’s comments is so lame. A general rebuttal would suffice. As for the “months of condos” issue you keep harping on, I doubt the figures have changed all that much since *last month,* when we had an extended debate on the topic. As a favor to you, here’s the situation when it comes to Miami condos: There are still huge, brand-new buildings downtown that are 50 to 75% empty and/or investor- or developer-owned. There are still brand-new condos in Miami Beach and SoFi that are close to 50% investor- and/or… Read more »

Here are some quotes from a post that Lucas made 7 months ago: “As many of you read earlier today, the Case-Shiller price index rose on a month-to-month basis for the first time in 3 years. 13 of the 20 cities in the index showed month-over-month price gains in May when compared with April 2009. However, Miami was not one of the 13 cities to show an improvement in prices. Home prices in Miami saw a decrease of .8 percent during that period.” “There may not have been an increase in home prices in Miami but the figures below show… Read more »

Joe, That’s pretty ironic that you tell me how lame parsing every word of peoples comments is lame when that’s exactly what you did to me in post #25 that I was responding too. Who cares if there is not a big rush to buy condos right now? Again over 900 condos are selling each month. Obviously people are continue to buy them. Why not use his blog to attract actual current buyers instead of people who think the market sucks and are going to wait a few years. I guess by your judgment he should just close the blog… Read more »

Wow, Burn Notice will show a penthouse with a bay view. The eurotrash and the Eastern European escorts must be packing already for their bar tending jobs or old geezer-provider hunting in Miami. When you ask them what they so: “I’m a model”…riiiight.

Enzo,

I don’t see anything wrong with those posts, just the lack of more “meaty” post in between them.

You’re a little too much of a buzz kill for us to be buddies. I’d say were more like acquaintances that smile at each other even though they don’t really like each other.

Gixxer 1000 — There’s a big difference between me quoting *one* of your posts and your habit of doing so, line by line, *every time* someone disagrees with you.

Beyond that, if you’re so well-versed in the Miami r.e. scene, why don’t you post your own updates, either here or on your own blog? The idea that you’re only complaining out of a selfless interest in Lucas’ business is beyond strange.

Gixxer said, “Why not update us on Miami Social as well.”

Hey hey, now you’re crossing the line. I love Miami Social. Don’t even think about bashing Housewives of OC, either. That’s real America baby; that’s why you get the Prez and Congress you deserve. On that note, prepare the pocket for a huge healthcare tax on your incomes. See, Dems can’t make money with housing anymore (have you seen Fannie lately?), so here comes healthcare cash cow, then cap-and-trade to rob the slaves clean. Enjoy your “change”, “liberal-pop culture” slaves.

Joe, Often times in a forum like this you rebuttal can get misconstrued at to what you’re saying or responding to. My copy and past of someones argument is simply for clarification at to what I’m responding to. Similar to how Owner@infitiy does and then comment with the arrow. I don’t care to post updates or start my own blog because it’s not that serious. I was simply stating my opinion. I will probably do so for the next couple of months until I decide what I’m going to do. Then I’ll either buy something or move on and maybe… Read more »

Gixxer 1000 — I’ve been on this site for barely a year. I haven’t lived at home in almost 20 years. I don’t live in Miami right now, and I have no expectation of buying a place in SoFi for $125/sf when I move back later this year. As I’ve said before, if not for the fact I’m not in the U.S. right now, I’d be spending about 95% less time here. Further, after I do buy a condo in Miami, I’ll probably swear off this site completely. More than anything, aside from the entertainment value this place has provided… Read more »

Most of you are dicks. I said most, not all. You sit here day after day constantly writing to each other, about each other and it makes me sick. I am actually trying to buy a condo and Lucas has all the info I need to make the right decision based on location, price, market conditions.

Gixxer 1000 – I don’t flip flop as you say. I have been consistent and probably a bit too bullish. You talk about the national market, then Miami, etc. These are different markets. Same with Miami condos (beach, downtown, Adventura, etc.) and SFH’s, under $250K and over $700K. There is a lot going on. I do think the generic $300K condo in Miami today will be worth a lot less in a year. Are the $700K condos in Miami moving, doesn’t look like it, so prices will need to come down there too…how much, not sure. The $2M SFH isn’t… Read more »

Renter Tom — It’s funny how everyone denied there was a housing bubble in Miami by claiming that “real estate is local,” blah blah blah, but now that the bubble has burst, a lot of the same people are quoting national trends to “prove” that things are getting better in Miami.

I mean, which is it? Is r.e. local or national? Have the Realtards (r) and the shills decided yet?
