South Florida’s pre-construction condo market will be converting to reality in 2015, with more than 65 new towers with nearly 6,400 units scheduled to be completed east of Interstate 95 in the tri-county region this year.

The new condo projects scheduled to be delivered in 2015 are a fivefold increase from the 20 towers with less than 1,200 units that have been completed in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties since the current real estate cycle began in 2011, according to the pre-construction condo projects website CraneSpotters.com, Peter Zalewski wrote in the Miami Herald.
