When the first project to be developed on the west side of Collins Avenue in more than a decade tops off, attention must be paid. The site: 17550 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles Beach. The edifice: the 17-story Aurora luxury condo. Executives from Verzasca Group looked on as construction crews poured the final floor, marking the completion of the building’s main structure. Despite the pandemic, the builder has continued working in order to stay on track to meet a delivery date in the third quarter of 2021.
“This is an incredibly exciting moment for Verzasca and everyone involved in the conception and development of Aurora,” says Verzasca Managing Director Tim Lobanov. “The topping off ceremony represents a significant milestone for our company and gives us an opportunity to express our gratitude to those who made this project possible.”
The boutique building’s two and three-bedroom residences range from 1,385 to more than 2,150 square feet. Prices start in the $900,000s, making it arguably the most attainable luxury project in Sunny Isles. Reflecting the newly turbocharged South Florida market, the 61-unit project is 65 percent sold, with buyers coming from all over the world. “Buyers are really responding to the combination of value, luxury and lifestyle that Aurora offers,” says John Warsing, director of sales. “We think our recent construction milestone will give us some new momentum as we head into the buying season in a couple of months, even in context of the new world we live in.”
The project was designed by world-renowned Revuelta Architecture International, with engineering services provided by DeSimone Consulting Engineers and Stantec. Interiors by Steven G. is already dazzling prospective and recently signed-up owners with its designs for the common areas and amenities.
