UPDATED July 18, 10:05 a.m.: The largest tower suite at the Mondrian South Beach just hit the market for $7.7 million.

The seller of condo TS-3 at the 335-unit condominium building at 1100 West Avenue is Christian Daniel Saunders. He bought two suites in 2007 for a total of $6 million with Dean Carr, and combined them into TS-3, property records show. Carr is no longer an owner.

Saunders is putting the 4,100-square-foot suite on the market for $1,878 per square foot, listed by Douglas Elliman’s Dina Goldentayer and Sladja Stantic.

“It’s definitely a bachelor pad vibe,” Goldentayer said. “It’s a custom, young and fun home that contrasts the typical white and beige scheme you see in South Beach.”

The turnkey unit boasts purple accents with Fendi furnishings throughout. Its terrace, which includes a hot tub, spans nearly 2,000 square feet with a downtown Miami skyline view, Goldentayer said.

The three bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom suite offers custom leather-lined closets, a bathroom with glass walls, Crestron lighting and home automation. Amenities at the hotel include access to its spa, gym, restaurant and indoor-outdoor lounge.

Goldentayer said the owners spent nearly $1 million in renovations. The unit is larger than another tower suite in the building, owned by British singer Craig David.

Other developments planned for West Avenue include Russell Galbut’s Crescent Heights’  mixed-use project called the Wave between 500-702 Alton Road and 501-651 West Avenue, and a five-story mixed-use project with a Trader Joe’s at 1698 Alton Road and 1681-1683 West Avenue.

Last July, the short-term operator Miami World Rental, led by Jack Melki, filed suit against the condo association at the Mondrian South Beach, after it was allegedly blocked from renting out units on behalf of owners. County records show the case is still pending.
