“The property got a lot of buzz and helped people remember that North Beach existed,” said Joelle Oiknine, a senior global real estate adviser with One Sotheby’s International Realty.
Carillon’s 580 units range in size from 750 to more than 6,000 square feet and sell for $425,000 to $10 million.
North Beach’s first high-profile residential building with a star name association — Ms. Hunt — debuted in February with the completion of L’Atelier. Its 24 units are all 2,300 square feet and cost $4 million, said Meir Srebernik, the co-owner of L’Atelier’s development company, SMG Management. Ms. Hunt designed the public spaces, which have gray and white marble floors and furniture and fabrics in soft beige, blue and gold tones. Mr. Srebernik said L’Atelier’s centerpiece is the three-story clubhouse with a spa, a gym and two pools.
But North Beach’s biggest attention grabber is 87 Park, scheduled to open this year. It is the first major residential condominium in the United States designed by Mr. Piano, a Pritzker Prize-winning Italian architect.
On the site of the Biltmore Terrace Hotel, the building has the 35-acre North Shore Park to its south. The building’s developer, Terra, is donating $10 million to help redesign the park.
Mr. Piano’s glass tower has 68 apartments, said Terra’s president, David Martin. They are priced from $2 million to $20 million and run from 1,000 to 5,000 square feet. Mr. Martin said that most of the apartments had sold and that buyers include the tennis player Novak Djokovic.
Amenities include a two-acre private park, two pools, a restaurant, a grab-and-go food outlet and a spa.
“The minute Renzo Piano became engaged in North Beach, other architects and developers wanted to put their mark on the neighborhood,” Mr. Gelber said. “It’s a part of town that Miamians and global buyers now want to live in.”
