This building is called 'The Grand' and indeed offers a unique 'GRAND' lifestyle. Entering the lobby a valet parking service will receive your car and a bellboy will help you with your luggage or shopping bags if you so desire.

Your 'home in the sky' is located on the 23rd. floor offering an expansive balcony that overlooks Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach and the ocean. Just below is the beautiful Pace Park where you can partake in a variety of sports activities. This recently renovated bayside park offers 2 tennis courts, (lighted until 10pm daily), 2 sand volleyball courts, a basketball court, a baseball diamond, walking/jogging trail bordering the bay and park and lots of tranquil green areas so that you can relax and enjoy your Miami experience.

The living room offers a queen sofa-sleeper and a full mirrored wall which reflects the bay and beach views from any angle. The separate dining room seats 8 and is fully equipped with china and glassware for elegant entertaining. There is also a bar alcove adjacent to the dining room complete with wine glasses, champagne flutes and martini glasses.

The fully equipped kitchen offers granite counter tops, a pass through breakfast bar with stools and of course, wonderful bay views.

The floor plan layout of this apartment offers total privacy between the master bedroom and the guest bedroom, as each room is located on opposite sides of the living room. The spacious master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and dressing area and the mirrored master bath comes with a large marble Roman tub for two, a separate shower and even a bidet. The guest room has a queen bed, ample closet space and an adjacent full bathroom with tub.

About Orlando Hidalgo

When deciding where to purchase our second home, Miami was on the top of the list, and a prime waterfront location close to everything was a 'must' in order to enjoy the urban lifestyle Miami has to offer.

Orlando Hidalgo purchased this condo in 2005

Why Orlando Hidalgo chose Downtown Miami

Spectacular bayside views overlooking South Beach, prime location in the 'heart of it all' and a world-class resort style building were the deciding factors when choosing 'The Grand' lifestyle. Not only does this apartment afford some of the most spectacular views of Biscayne Bay, a park view just below the balcony, luxury island residences and Miami Beach, it also offers the best location in Miami. Situated next to the Venetian Causeway, you can bike to South Beach within minutes, enjoy the opera, symphony or concert at the new Performing Arts Center just a block away, or walk to the Metro-Mover which will take you to downtown shopping, the Bayside Shopping/Entertainment Complex or the American Airlines Arena where you can enjoy various sports events and concerts.

What makes this condo unique

'The Grand' offers a unique combination of condo living with resort style amenities ranging from concierge service, valet parking, 5 restaurants and a shopping arcade located on the mezzanine level. An Olympic size swimming pool overlooking the bay, 4 outdoor jacuzzis and a world class private gym with bay views are just a few of the unique benefits this property has to offer. This is not just an ordinary condo, but rather a resort lifestyle experience!

A happy repeat customer -- splendid vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the month of February -- for the second time -- at this wonderful condo. We are booked again for next year. It has the most splendid view of Biscayne Bay -- with great comfortable furniture. You can spend most of your day happily on the expansive balcony. But the location in Edgewater, an up & coming part of Miami, makes your stay a truly exciting urban vacation. Everything is accessible -- the Arsht Center, Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, the new Brickell City Center, Wynwood and the Design District -- by car, by Miami Mover, by bicycle. It is one block from the Venetian Causeway and Miami Beach. Also a warm swimming pool and huge hot-tub -- and the amenities of a hotel right downstairs.

What a beautiful condo and overall a wonderful place to stay for leisure and/or business.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice condo to stay at with a small group. Loved the layout and the balcony overlooking the bay area. It is also located in a convenient area next to the grocery store, bay side market, and the AA arena.

I highly suggest this place for your stay in Miami.

Gracias Orlando!!
