- Miami, June 2020 -
Excellent levels of design and construction; comfort in each private space, and common areas geared towards family entertainment. A unique location featuring the largest beach on the island, adjacent to the public parks. Commodore Club has it all, as, it shines, renovated inside and out.
Its charm dates back to the 1970s, when it was known as the “Ocean Club”; simply the best apartment complex of its time in Miami. The Commodore defined itself as a private complex with only 185 units in each of its three towers, distinguishing itself from other projects that were composed of 350 to 400 apartment units per building.
Inspired by this quality differential, manager Todd Patterson and his administration put into place a renovation plan with a budget exceeding 4 million dollars. Octavio Rinaldi, who chairs the condominium and is CWV Group's CEO, took the lead project role. B:a Design Group was appointed to the refreshing and upgrade of the interior already having made its mark in Key Biscayne properties and luxury towers such as Acqualina, Jade Beach and Jade Ocean in Sunny Isles. The design team took the building's original spirit into account and contributed ideas in order to implement changes with more contemporary touches. Diego Vanderbiest, an architect with experience in landscaping was in charge of the exterior renovation, having previously developed projects for Four Seasons and other luxury towers in South Florida.
These changes are not opportune. In the last decades, there has been a quite bit of families arriving to Key Biscayne. A safe environment, beach, and good schools are part of the appeal; Commodore Club blends perfectly with this family friendly setting. Today it offers many of the amenities of the top complexes, which means it offers a great level of service, at a great value.
The majority of the apartment units in the renewed complex, at 199 Ocean Lane Drive. The average per square foot is 600 USD, and those located facing the ocean can reach the average per square foot of 800 USD. The majority of the units are two-bedrooms, with an average value of 750.000 USD, while the single-bedroom units are valued at 500.000 USD. There are many apartment units with 3 bedrooms, value exceeding 1 million USD.
Rent values begin at 2.000 USD for single bedroom units, with two-bedroom apartment units ranging between 3.500 and 4.000 USD. The few three-bedroom units start at 5.900 and go up to 7.500 USD.
At the same time, parallel to the condominium renovation, other improvements are in progress. Together they bridge aesthetic and architectural aspects and also services:
- New main lobby, hallways, and elevator landings
