More than three-quarters of new condo construction in Miami, the Beaches and Fort Lauderdale has been sold, according to a new ISG Miami Report update.

The “Q4 New Construction Update” tracks sales of condo units in the pipeline and currently built east of I-95 in Miami-Dade since mid-2011, and found that 13,248 units have been sold out of the 17,353 units in Brickell, the Biscayne corridor, downtown Miami, the Beaches, Aventura, North Miami Beach, Coconut Grove, Key Biscayne and Fort Lauderdale.

Here are its findings:

Brickell, Miami River

  • Sold: 81 percent of 5,913 units
  • Sold out: 1100 Millecento, Brickell House, Nine at Mary Brickell Village and MyBrickell

Brickell Flatiron has sold 45 percent of its 548 units since launching sales in April 2014. Ugo Colombo’s CMC Group is developing the 60-story condo tower, which is located near Brickell City Centre. Meanwhile, Brickell City Centre’s Rise and Reach condo towers are 88 percent and 40 percent sold, respectively.

In May, Colombo and his partners put the development site nearby on the market in a sign of market recalibration.

Towers including 1010 Brickell, Brickell Heights East, Brickell Ten, Echo Brickell, SLS Hotel and Residences, SLS Lux and the Bond are all more than 90 percent sold, according to the report.

Along the Miami River, One River Point will bring 400 units via two towers, which the ISG report said are not yet on the market. No other projects on the river are included.

The condo tower is part of the 27-acre development with retail, a hotel and expo center, and dining and entertainment options. Worldcenter developers last week canceled plans for a major mall anchored by Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s and replaced them with plans for pedestrian-oriented “High Street” retail. Paramount was planned on top of the retail component. Developers have yet to comment on how the project’s design will change.

Biscayne Beach has sold 99 percent of its 399 units, the report said. Aria on the Bay, 57 percent of 648 units. Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum, which began construction in August, has reached 60 percent sales of its 83 units.

The corridor includes Wynwood, the Design District, Edgewater, Midtown and Omni, now the Arts & Entertainment District.
