Developed by Mast Capital, Louver House ground breaking began a year ago in December 2015. With only 12 residences, prices start at $2.5 million to $3.9 million, ranging from 2,088 to 2,432 square feet.

Louver House was designed by architect Rene Gonzalez who also designed Glass. 

Construction is expected to be completed in 2017.

This Was South Beach In 1965 - Before & After

The photo on the top left is what South Beach looked like in 1965. The original pier was further North and remained until 1984. Behind the pier was the Miami Beach Kennel Club for dog racing that was built in 1926 before it was finally torn down in 1980. Today in 2016, the South of Fifth (SoFi) district of Miami Beach is an exclusive part of Miami with high rises and new condos such as One Ocean, Glass and Marea. The new South Pointe Park Pier was completed in 2014 after being closed for several years.
