Turnberry Ocean Colony Common Areas – Picture Tour

June 30, 2009 by Lucas Lechuga

I was able to visit Turnberry Ocean Colony a few weeks ago and was able to shoot a ton of pictures of the common areas and of a 2 bedroom condo with a direct ocean view that I showed to a client that day.  This post includes pictures of just the common areas.  I’ll follow it up within a few days with pictures of the 2 bedroom condo.

Turnberry Ocean Colony is a beachfront condo development located in Sunny Isles Beach.  It is one of the nicest condo developments that I have ever visited in South Florida.

“It is one of the nicest condo developments that I have ever visited in South Florida.” Lucas, from the pictures it seems the building is very nice, but have you visited the “Aqualina” located as well in Sunny Isles? If you have, how do you compare the two?…accommodations, condo fees, services….

BillyK,

Yes, I’ve been to Acqualina several times. I like the location of Acqualina a bit better than Turnberry Ocean Colony but overall I like TOC better. I like the fact that it’s not a monstrous high-rise like Acqualina and I never liked the limited number of hours that you’re able to get sun at Acqualina’s pool. In many respects, however, they have the same feel.

The building is o’k but as someone mentioned it is for a certain type of people. I am humble in this case to judge. Have you ever been in the restaurant in Acqualina? IT is very expensive but not my type of food. When I was there a lot of people some older some a bit younger men and women all dressed in flashy very expensive outfits with rubies and emeralds the size of elephant’s eggs( if elephant was a bird and could lay out eggs). when these people talk you hear it is not British English. So this is… Read more »

In all honesty, it really looks like a very upscale retirement community. Actually, it kinda reminds me of where my grandparents live, in the Trump towers in West Palm.

Cap and Trade? Yeah, like the other countries won’t cheat… It also depends on the target levels but the enforcement is an issue with different countries.

Looks like too much dead common space that hardly anyone will use. And the pools look small and uninspiring for such an expensive beach building.

Lenders foreclose on a Related Group property in West Palm Beach BY ALLISON ROSS Palm Beach Post The Related Group, headed by Miami developer Jorge Perez, is turning over control of the 420-unit CityPlace South Tower condominium to an investor group in a ”friendly foreclosure” facilitated by its lenders, the company said Wednesday. The new owners, a consortium led by Toronto-based Scotia Capital, will acquire title to all of the unsold units in the nearly empty tower in downtown West Palm Beach. There was no price disclosed in the transaction. CityPlace South Tower developers had contracted to sell 367 units,… Read more »

SORRY, PRESSED SEND BY MISTAKE. So here is the story: I’ve been looking at single family homes for a while now and given that I have access to MLS, I have decided to go at it myself and have been in direct contact with the listing broker of many houses for showings. I have seen approximately 10 houses with little success. No offers. In order to stay on top of current listings, I added a typical email alert on MLS that sends me instant emails when a new listing pops up that meets my criteria. Well, today, I received an… Read more »

… especially a short sale, you would think they’d want multiple offers in hand in case buyer #1 can’t perform. Who knows? In Miami, always safer to assume the worst.

Anyone looking to pick off a unit in this building better do some due diligence. Aside from the usual concerns about the health of a particular building you’ve got the whole FB Vegas turd circling in the toilet. Supposedly FB Vegas is not cross collateralized with any of the other Turnberry assets, …but Soffer’s guaranty exposure is huge on that project and if FB Vegas fails, who knows what else his name is on with the remaining projects (including TOC) and what effect a large deficiency judgment could have. Not saying you shouldn’t buy…just, know what’s out there. Aside from… Read more »

Hugo P, not sure about your particular deal, but on the offer I made, which was also a short sale, the listing agent said he would not be taking any other offers. I think he said the bank only considers one offer at a time. Could be different from bank to bank and agent to agent for all I know though.

Fannie, Freddie ease terms for mortgage refinance

By Patrick Rucker Patrick Rucker – Wed Jul 1, 5:57 pm ET
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Obama administration on Wednesday expanded its foreclosure prevention efforts to help a greater number of underwater homeowners refinance their mortgages.

Under the widened program, mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae (FNM.N) and Freddie Mac (FRE.N) will refinance up to 125 percent of a home’s value, lifting the current 105 percent loan-to-value cap.

Hugo P, many times they will take the first offer over their asking price. Sometimes even if it isn’t over asking they will negotiate with the potiental buyer (especially cash offers) and they won’t consider another offer until negotiation falls through. I’ve been saying on this board for a few months, the good deals do not stick around long. You check the MLS daily but there are people out there checking MLS 3 times a day. I’ve had the same thing happen to me several times in the last month. I’m checking MLS 2 times a day plus I have… Read more »

Turnberry looks to be a very nice condo building with great details and finishes. I see it everyday I am in town….a very quite building with one of the towers much more occupied than the other. By far more established than any of the Trump Towers. The one major issue I don’t like is that the towers sit back from the beach while the Trump Towers push to the property line on the beach causing a partial obstruction of views and of course other buildings looking into your windows….not a big deal for most people. A big concern would be… Read more »

MMT The interesting comment about this deal is that the seller’s broker told me that the buyer was actually one of his clients on the buyer side and that he just put the two together when the listing came up. Based on this, he is acting as the seller and buyer broker, which I am pretty sure is illegal. Did somebody say conflict of interest? Also, when the broker is getting the listing, he can set a price for the property that he knows his buyer/client will pay, not really getting the full potential sales price. Finally, when I asked… Read more »

From the DBR… Foreclosed Properties After lull in listings, another wave of REOs to hit market July 01, 2009 By: Polyana da Costa After declaring that South Florida was experiencing a scarcity of foreclosed homes for sale by lenders, local real estate agents now say a new wave of listings is making its way to market. Some industry insiders said the recent lack of listings was an artificial shortage deliberately created by some banks that withheld their foreclosed properties from the marketplace. Other agents blame the decline in so-called REO (real-estate owned) properties for sale on other factors, including lenders’… Read more »

For all the silly optimists with an agenda:

“U.S. housing prices will fall by a double-digit percentage from already beaten-down levels, resulting in an overall 40 percent plunge by the time foreclosures peak in the second half of 2010, Barclays Capital economist Michelle Meyer said.”

– Prices have never been better, buy now. Be a knife catcher.

South Beach is looking a bit down with quite a few run down, for sale, weed infested properties in fairly prime locations. The “condo-hotel” fade will hurt that are for a long time since the ownership structure is a mess and really for all practical purposes can’t be undone. Worse than the apartment to condo conversions. What a fricking mess! I’ve always viewed condo-hotels as toxic and have told many people my opinion since the fade took off around 2003. The condo-hotel fade will hurt SoBe for some time. Also, the apartment to condo conversions in good locations in SoBe… Read more »

“Cap and Trade” The US will now lead the world in generating Green Electricity. Environmentals call it Green electricity because somehow supposedly this electricity will be less harmfull the the environment, reduce the potential of global warming, blah, blah, blah. Note carefully that the real reason Cap and Trade produces green electricity is that it is going to completely suck all the Green out of your wallet. Prepare for much higher electric bills, maybe rates will double or more at high peak hours. Every business and government building that runs air conditioning and uses lots of electrical power will raise… Read more »

TOC was hopping on the 4th with a band with tents and all….even the beach boys sported American flag baseball hats and patriotic beads…. Very tastefully done.

Mike – TOC is new construction, not from the 70’s, in case you were mistaking for another building.
