3900 Alton Brings Convenience, Style & Tranquility To Mid-Beach
Nestled just between the 41st Street business district and the Biscayne Bay is a 10 acre development site that will soon be home to a boutique building, 3900 Alton. The project was designed by Richard Bofill and will have 78 units in 8 floors.
Each of the residences will have a chef-grade Poliform kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, 10 foot ceilings, floor to ceiling energy efficient windows, frameless glass showers and Savant Home Automation systems. The 3 garden residences will have lush private gardens designed by Naturalficial, other units will have spacious balconies with glass railings. All residences will come with one parking space, 24 hour valet for guests and access to the Tesla House car. Each owner will receive VIP access to the Beach Club at the Nobu Hotel and Eden Roc. Many residences will have private elevators, and this is one of the only projects in the area that also has Shabbat elevators for those who observe.
Onsite amenities include a 3rd floor landscaped pool terrace with lounge seating, sunset bay view deck, lounging cabanas and daybeds, a children’s pool, a poolside refreshment & cocktail bar, towel service as well as a summer kitchen and yoga area. Art installations for the lobby, pool deck and other common areas are by Loris Cecchini, Fernando Mastrangelo, Philip Taaffe and Christoph Keller. Indoors, residents will enjoy a private dining room, children’s playroom, secure wine vault and storage, a light-filled fitness center with sauna, steam and changing area, 24 hour business center and social lounge with gaming area, library and media room.
The VIP Beach Club membership will give residents access to cabanas, beach lounges, towel service and beach butlers as well as preferential access to golfing and tennis at the Miami Beach Golf Club. The building will have community paddle boards, kayaks and bicycles for the residents, with the house car available to take people to Sunset Harbour or the Eden Roc.
Aside from the features and amenities, I really like the location of this project. It is in the middle of an area that is largely residential with single family homes, so a luxury condo development is refreshing. The views are spectacular and the project is walking distance to both the Talmudic University, multiple synagogues as well as the St. Patrick’s church and school. Mt. Sinai Hospital is the biggest employer on Miami Beach and is a bike ride away, along with the 41st Street business district. The access to the Julia Tuttle is very easy for those who would like to visit the Design District, Midtown, Brickell or Downtown, among other attractions on the mainland.
The construction is slated to begin early this year, with completion in 2019. Prices start just under $800,000 for 1 bedroom plus den garden residences up to $2.3 million for a 2,100 square foot 4 bedroom residence. See below for the 10+ acre site plan, renderings video, sample views and sales brochure. What do you think?
