The ICON South Beach is one the jewels of SOFI-South of Fifth- a unique exclusive, residential area on the southern tip of the barrier island most commonly known as Miami Beach.
The Unique Location of this Island Jewel
The ICON, a stellar symbol of luxury living, can be found at the tip of South Beach. South Beach is a mere 20 blocks long and boasts of being an exemplary sample of the magnificence of Art Deco architecture. The tone of the neighborhood sets the stage for this quintessential 40 story S-shaped residential tower located near Alton Road, Michigan Avenue and 3rdStreet. Every room has a view of one or more of these–the city of Miami, Miami Beach, South Beach, Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean with magnificent and spacious glass railed terraces.
For most of the year, one can experience warm tropical breezes, dry warm winter days and pleasantly refreshing cool evenings for strolls along the beach or the town. Living in South Beach affords you the advantage of riding on the SWOOP, a 6 passenger white golf cart taxi that picks you up anywhere in South Beach and with no fee or tip takes you to your destination within South Beach.
Designated biking, walking and running lanes provide safe zones for you to travel around South Beach. Or, you can utilize the South Beach Local, which makes a loop around the tip of the island.
Within minutes, one can stroll to Stoneman Douglas Ocean Beach Park or the newly renovated South Pointe Park. For a nautical experience, The Miami Beach Marina is adjacent to the property. If museums are more to your liking, the Bass Museum, the Jewish Museum, the Florida International University’s Wolfsonian museum, library and research center are there to be explored.
Shopping cannot be beaten in South Beach as the famous Lincoln Road walking mall is blocks away, and the construction of the new Fifth Street and Alton Road mall will soon to be open. Nearby is the newly developed Espanola Way a replica of shopping in a beautiful Spanish style village. Collins Avenue is the place to find every fashion style, American, European, Japanese, Parisian, Italian and more while having access to a wide range of exotic restaurants. Not to be left out, one can feast at world famous Joe’s Stone Crab.
