I’m in the midst of reading 740 Park: The Story of the World’s Richest Apartment Building by Michael Gross. While reading this book, I keep making subconscious references to Apogee South Beach in my head. Given what I know about Apogee, from about the quality of construction to the pedigree of the owners, it isn’t hard to make the connection to 740 Park. The history of 740 Park Avenue, at least for me, is fascinating.
I try to understand why I keep comparing Apogee to 740 Park, and here is what I find:
- Apogee will be very exclusive, with only 64 residences
- Entry-level residences start at about $3.5M
- Gas fireplace in master suite or living room
- Each unit comes with a private, air-conditioned garage
- 11-foot wide terraces
- Each unit will have a “summer kitchen” on the terrace
- This will be the first condominium in Miami Beach to enforce a service entrance for all deliveries. Even real estate agents must use the service entrance.
