Continuum North & South – Your Next Luxury Condominium

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Want To Learn More About Continuum North And Continuum South? Read On…

Location, location, location!!!

Isn’t that what they always say when it comes to real estate?

While this is a commonly held belief, it’s never been more true when it comes to Continuum North and South.

Located in the heart of South Beach are these two luxury towers.

The location and view alone have many clamoring for a home in these towers.

However, there is so much more that makes this area of Miami Beach an appealing one, which we will explore in more detail here. First, let’s take a closer look at the property.

The Site

The towers themselves are still fairly new, with the South Tower opening in 2002 and the North Tower in 2007. Both buildings have direct ocean frontage at the southernmost tip of South Beach in the coveted South of Fifth, or SoFi, neighborhood. The other unique feature is the adjacent 17 acre South Pointe Park, which had a $23 million renovation completed in 2009, where you can take a stroll alongside the Government Cut waterway, an extensive marina and with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay, Fisher Island and Miami Downtown .

So, what is available to you upon moving in? The following is merely a partial list:

  • Valet services

  • Access to fitness and spa areas

  • 12 acres of resort like space

  • Pool

  • Private beach with all beach service- including ordering from a restaurant menu.

  • Private restaurant

  • Concierge services

  • 24/7 security

  • 2 clay tennis courts

  • Fitness classes

  • Private tennis and fitness trainers

We think you can already see that these are not normal everyday living spaces, even by Miami Beach standards. The South Tower in particular has numerous unique very large apartments, some of which are combined units. Then there are the penthouses, which are truly spectacular with enormous square footage, private entrance, pool and summer terrace.

A personal valet service means you’ll never have to worry about parking your own vehicle and access to spa, pool, oceanfront restaurant and fitness services mean you may never actually have to leave your home.

The South of Fifth Neighborhood

The Continuum development is located in the southernmost tip of Miami Beach, south of Fifth Street and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay and Government Cut on the east, west and south. There are several luxury condominiums nearby, such as:

  • Portofino Tower

  • Apogee

  • Glass

  • One Ocean

  • Marea

  • Murano at Portofino

  • Murano Grande

The harmonious nature of this environment make it likely that friends and family will be nearby.

So, what’s available to do when you’re looking for entertainment off of the grounds of Continuum? Let’s take a look what’s near by.

Culinary Attractions

You have to eat.

There is no doubt about it, so where do you go? How about these two for starters:

Smith & Wollensky

World famous Smith & Wollensky can be found steps away in South Pointe Park. You will be able to enjoy both great food and amazing waterfront views when you visit this venerable establishment.

Joe’s Stone Crab

If seafood is on your mind, then you MUST visit Joe’s Stone Crab. Many have raved about the stone crabs to be had here, as well as an extensive host of other seafood selections.

The following is a partial list of other great restaurants within walking distance of Continuum:

Milos (seafood)

Red (steak)

Prime 112 (steak)

Prime Italian (Italian)

Il Mulino

Texas de Brazil


Do you enjoy shopping? If you do, then you will enjoy all that Lincoln Road Mall has to offer.

Located 15 blocks north of Continuum, this open area shopping, dining and entertainment destination will provide you with all forms of entertainment.

There are the usual shops that you will find in most other malls, such as Zara, H&M, Gap and Steve Madden, as well as unique local shops such as Alvin’s Island.

Are you looking for something on the higher end? No problem, check out Intermix, Swarovski, Herve Leger, D&G & Valentino.

Regardless if you need new jeans, a new necklace or new shoes, you’ll be sure to find all that you need at the Lincoln Road Mall.

Night Life

What’s a great resort and beach town without nightlife?

For some, one of the reasons to vacation, have second homes or live full time in South Beach is the nightlife. Here are a few of the hot spots you may want to check out.

Icon Miami

Located at 1235 Washington Avenue is Icon Miami. One of the hottest spots in all of Miami, you can get the full VIP experience here.

You can quickly and easily set up a reservation by filling out a form on their website. You will then be contacted by one of the VIP hosts who will ensure that you get only the best treatment.

Story Nightclub

One of South Beach’s biggest nightclubs, Story isn’t just another club. This is why many refer to this venue not as a club, but an “experience.”

With over 30,000 square feet of space, you’ll surely be able to get your “party” on at Story.

Closing Thoughts

South Beach and Miami are well noted as being one of the hottest spots in the United States, if not the world.

The beautiful beaches, weather and living areas make it an ideal place to vacation or call home.
