UPDATED, Oct. 31, 11:17 a.m.: Developer Ugo Colombo completed Brickell Flatiron, a 64-story, 527-unit tower, marking one of the last major projects to be delivered this cycle.

Colombo’s CMC Group received its temporary certificate of occupancy for the 736-foot-high skyscraper, which means that closings are set to begin immediately, said Vanessa Grout, president of CMC Real Estate. The building at 1000 Brickell Plaza is about 95 percent sold, according to a press release. Sales launched in 2014.

Fortune International Group took over sales and marketing of the condo tower in 2017, over a year after the developer broke ground. Fortune is working with CMC Real Estate on the remaining sales.

Colombo, a developer who owns the luxury car dealership The Collection, in April 2017 secured a $236 million in construction financing, which included a $138.5 million mortgage and a $97.5 million mezzanine loan from Bank OZK and Goldman Sachs/RFR Realty.

Earlier this year, CMC lowered the deposit requirements to 30 percent, down from the market’s standard of 50 percent, in a move to attract more U.S. buyers for the remaining units. At the time, Flatiron was 87 percent sold. Remaining units range from $790,000 to $3 million, with one duplex penthouse left asking $8 million.

Brickell Flatiron was designed by architect Luis Revuelta with amenity spaces by Massimo Iosa Ghini. It’s the tallest condominium tower south of New York City.

The 64th-floor rooftop features a spa, pool and 6,300-square-foot gym with a Pilates, yoga and aerobics studio, and a juice bar. The building also includes a lap pool and children’s pool on the 18th floor, a movie theater, billiards and cigar room, wine cellar, and electric car charging stations.

Elysee Investments acquired the 24,800 square feet of ground floor retail and restaurant space at Brickell Flatiron in 2016.

CMC Group’s developments include the Bristol in Brickell, Santa Maria, Epic Residences and Porto Vita. In 2014, Colombo sold the site of his once-planned Epic East project in downtown Miami for $125 million to the Coto family of Argentina, which is now building Aston Martin Residences on the property.

Grout said CMC Group is already working on plans for future condo projects, but declined to identify specific sites.

“We actually have a few interesting opportunities we are looking at and something we’ll be announcing soon,” she said.
