Centro Condominium, a New Pedestrian Friendly Concept at a Luxury Tower in Downtown Miami

Centro Flyer

Downtown Miami welcomes a one of a kind residential development, a ground-breaking concept that invites residents to a new lifestyle in this urban enclave, promoting a pedestrian-friendly and sort of neighborhood-integrated luxury condo. The Centro Condo is the first condo in the Downtown Miami area, and will be built by Newgard Development Group. Its main unique features? Open spaces, loft-style units, and no-on site parking. 

Yes, no parking garage. As stated to the media by Harvey Hernandez, Newgard Development Group chairman and managing partner, the no garage thing was at the begining a very challenging conception, but on time, it has been received gladly and widely by the community and public opinion. The reason that developers decided to be bold and propose something like this, is that Downtown Miami has become a pedestrian-friendly district, and it now counts on many public transportation options, as well as many main centers of attraction that are at a walking distance from the Centro Condo, such as the Biscayne Bay Bayside Shops, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, the AA Arena, and now more recently, the Perez Museum of Art and the Museum Park; moreover, the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is under construction East of the Centro.

Also, by cutting the garage space, Centro developers incentivate walking along a vibrant neighborhood that has become the core of Miami in recent years, and has reborn from little permanent residents, to be the fastest growing population on an urban area in the US, coming from something like 40,000 residents in 2009 to a little over 80,000 today. This type of condo concepts will sure contribute this area to be even busier and full of life. Well, not to mention that the Centro cut 20-25% of its construction cost by outsourcing the garage space and services, and counts on a permanent 24-7 valet service for residents and visitors, that will park vehicles in a nearby third-party garage, transmiting this cost to buyers instead of asuming in on first hand. This reflects on maintenance fees, which are lower than the other condos in the area.

Anyways, more alternatives are offered, as Centro has an established alliance with Car2Go, and residents will count on an electric Car2Go station right next to their doors, to make transportation even easier and more integrated with this Smart cars public program. Hernandez talks about the benefits of the Car2Go program in a "city (that) realizes the benefits and savings of not having to drive a car to and from work every day". And there are sure benefits of doing so, as we see this tendency in more and more cities around the globe every day as a part to cut gases emissions and have a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle (also budget-friendly). Miami is rapidly speeding up its pace to keep up with the World's top cities' smart strategies! The image below offers an astonishing air view of what will be this already lavish neighborhood once it fully welcomes the Centro condo. It gest hardly any more appealing than this!
