Miami-Dade County developers have increasingly tailored their buildings’ amenities and services to the needs of the super-luxury buyer.

To attractive clients who travel often, developers will offer vaults — or a condo helipad. The residential tower 1000 Museum at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard – slated to open early next year – is providing the first private helipad in the city. A 4,600-square-foot unit on the 16th floor recently sold for $5.25 million.

The number of properties that sold for $5-plus million rose more than 24 percent year-over-year from last year, according to data from market research group TrendGraphix.

“But the real standout player was the ultra-prime properties priced over $10 million, which saw an impressive 50% increase, with 15 of those properties closing in the first six months of the year,” One Sotheby’s International Realty founder Mayi de la Vega said. [Miami Today]Mark Maurer
