Glass 120 Ocean In The South of Fifth District

TBT (October 29, 2014) - 4 years ago the 18 story Glass, developed by Terra Group, was about to top off in South Beach. After beginning construction in August 2013, the Rene Gonzalez designed building eventually opened in November 2015.

The last time we checked in on Terra Group's Glass 120 Ocean project they were starting to put on the 11th floor. Now they are working on the 17th floor of the 18 floor condo. 

Residents will be able to see views of the ocean, Miami and South Beach.

Construction is expected to be completed by early 2015.

Located in the South of Fifth district in Miami Beach, the four story Louver House has topped off. 

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. Amenities include a rooftop deck with infinity pool, outdoor yoga studio and a sunken lobby area with custom tables and benches by famed artist Michele Oka Doner.

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.
