MARQUIS is here! Well almost. Marquis Condo is just a few weeks away from beginning closings and during the last week I had a few chances to get into the building and get my fix. I have been dying to get into this building. Marquis is located at 1100 Biscayne Blvd and stands 67 stories tall (the second tallest residential building in Miami, behind the Four Seasons) across from Museum Park and Biscayne Bay. I was extremely excited to finally get in with my clients over the last week to look at many of the floorplans. I had a chance to preview 1 bedroom with dens, 2 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms and even an incredible 4 bedroom. Marquis is the last Downtown Miami Condo to open and the last in the Biscayne Wall which consists of Ten Museum Park, Marina Blue and 900 Biscayne Bay. Unlike many of the other developments built in Miami recently, Marquis includes only 306 exclusive residences and a boutique hotel within the building. The Hotel is named CASA Miami. This is a great feature for when you have visiting friends from out of town. You can put them up in the hotel and still be close enough. The hotel only consists of 56 rooms and is located between the 3rd and 14th floors so I wouldn’t expect the hotel patrons to be in the way of the full time residents of Marquis. Marquis also will house a signature restaurant and I hear that a major chef is coming to the building. I won’t disclose who until it’s official but its big! So the first impression I had of the building was as I entered the lobby. There is a valet entrance with separate lobbies for the residents and also for the hotel. As we entered the lobby I noticed that every inch of the lobby was covered in some material. The walls were clad with Marble, Stone and Wood. A great feature is the private elevators to most lines in the building. We took the private elevator up to one of the floors and we took a look at the two bedroom one-story units which was a flow through unit offering both East and West views like most units in the building. I also was able to see a huge 4 bedroom on the North East corner and a large 3 bedroom on the South East corner. The views were mind-blowing from all units. The kitchens were very sleek with all Viking appliances, and the spacious master baths were appointed with Duravit and KWC fixtures. The terraces were huge and all living spaces had minimum 10-foot ceilings with 20-foot ceilings in some areas. The interior doors were also impressive, they went all the way up to the ceiling. Anyway here are the photos:
