Penthouse Sale at Marquis Breaks Record on Per Square Foot Basis
Recently, a record-breaking sale took place at Marquis in Park West Miami. Unit 6101 – a 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath bi-level penthouse encompassing 3,729 interior square feet – sold last Friday for $2,675,000, or $717 per square foot. This made it not only the highest sale to ever take place at Marquis on a per square foot basis, but also the first sale in the building to the eclipse the $700 per square foot threshold. The view – which is amplified by its soaring 20-foot, floor-to-ceiling glass windows – is nothing short of spectacular. The condo, located on the southeast corner of the 61st floor, offers views of the Miami Beach skyline, Downtown Miami, Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
The penthouse was priced extremely well. I know firsthand that there was a high level of interest from buyers. The unit lasted not even two weeks on the market before going under contract and ended up selling $175,000 above asking price.
The unit was purchased decorator-ready directly from the developer in March 2011 for $1,730,000, or $464 per square foot.
It is important to note that this penthouse is not one of the penthouses that includes a rooftop pool. As you may recall, one of those penthouses sold decorator-ready in June 2010 for $4.2M, or $525 per square foot. That was the mammoth penthouse at Marquis with 8,000 interior square feet across four levels. In case you’re wondering, that is the largest penthouse currently in existence in Downtown Miami. That record will be shattered once THE PENTHOUSE at One Thousand Museum is completed. That penthouse will have a mind-blowing 15,000 interior square feet.
