MIAMI, FL - According to Miami’s Downtown Development Authority, Downtown Miami is emerging as one of the country’s fastest growing urban centers with sales velocity of condominiums remaining strong. Leading the race is Icon Brickell, the fastest selling condo on the market; with sales and marketing led by Fortune International since June of 2010.
Not only the single most recognized condo building in downtown Miami - synonymous with design greats including Philippe Starck - the project stands as the finest example of the real estate boom’s creations, and post-crash, a beacon to the success and rise of downtown out of the ashes.
“The bank expectation (when taking over in 2010) was it was going to be a three-year sellout. We’re going to sell out within 18 months, which is unbelievable,” said Edgardo Defortuna, CEO of Fortune International.
The “city-within-a-city” as envisioned by developer Jorge Perez, is the strongest showcase of foreign buyers in Miami, with an increase in buyers coming from China, France, Brazil, Argentina and always remaining a popular investment choice across all of Latin America in general. Despite the strong international scene, Icon Brickell continues to appeal to buyers across the U.S., with strong presence from the Midwest and Northeast states. Icon Brickell illustrates the transformation of the Brickell area from corporate domain to thriving active community.
Nearly 200 residences remain available at the property, ranging from studios to three-bedroom floorplans.
Icon Brickell’s exclusive lifestyle and designs by yoo inspired by Starck, the longest pool in the country, decadent spa, theater and billiards rooms, as well as restaurants and hotel on site, create the optimum opportunity for global buyers to purchase within a Miami landmark in the most dynamic, stylish and cultured neighborhood.
