Kevin Tomlinson, the most respected name in Miami Beach luxury condos, presents the Caribbean South Beach. Contact us for floor plans, prices and pictures.

The reinvention of Miami Beach glamour has begun. It's not often that I get to present new luxury oceanfront condos in Miami Beach. The Caribbean Hotel was originally built in 1941 and designed by famed architect L. Murray Dixon. This hotspot was frequented by the Miami Beach rich and famous during the Rat Pack days. The Caribbean is a historic oceanfront landmark undergoing a complete restoration into upscale condominium towers that will recapture the glamour of a bygone era.

The existing six-story building will be renovated to house 35 ultra-luxury units in what will become the north tower, and a new, 19-story south tower will be built alongside it with 68 equally lavish residences. All units will be glass-enclosed. Penthouses will feature private rooftop terraces and swimming pools.

The exterior of the original structure will be restored to reveal its black granite facade, and the terrazzo floors will be refurbished in the lobby. Floor-to-ceiling windows invite bright natural light into all units, most of which will include views of the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean. With 9-foot ceilings in the regular residences and 11-foot heights in the penthouse units, the sky will really be the limit of your view. West-facing condos have stunning vistas of Miami Beach, Indian Creek, Biscayne Bay, and the entrancing skyline of downtown Miami.

Units come equipped with Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, plus fine marble and granite kitchens and bathrooms. You'll be given two selections of European kitchen cabinets, so it's up to you to decide which is the better complement to the standard cappuccino machine and wine cooler!

Christopher Ciccone, Madonna's brother and feted interior designer to stars like Tony Bennett and Dolly Parton, will bring his celebrity-inspired design touches to the Caribbean. His influences, which also include styling Madonna's homes, are certain to sensualize this structure even more.

The Caribbean's prime locale in the 37th Street and Collins Avenue neighborhood is part of the Historic District that lies between South Beach and the Fontainebleau. This formerly affluent and legendary community is experiencing a massive transformation and is poised to return to its once-stellar reputation. A number of exciting new projects are underway in the Historic District, which magnifies the momentous growth in this area: Mosaic, 1 Hotel & Residences South Beach, the Ritz Carlton residences and the Saxony. The Marriott recently restored and re-launched its Courtyard Tower here, another example of the commitment that premium brands are making in this "one-to-watch" neighborhood.
