In many ways, the Continuum story is the story of the transformation of Miami Beach's South of Fifth (SoFi) district into an international ultra-luxury destination. In 1912 the area became the site of Miami Beach's first subdivision and was developed by the Lummus Brothers for whom South Beach's lush, 74-acre park is named. The area fell on hard times after the movement of 'the scene' northward up the coast starting in the late 1950s, but in the early 1990s German businessman Thomas Kramer purchased 45 acres in SoFi with the belief that it held a vast potential for redevelopment. He eventually sold a piece of this now prized oceanfront land to famed New York developer Bruce Eichner. In 2002 the area, which housed the old Coast Guard station, became the sight of the ultra-exclusive Continuum Towers.
The Continuum's 42-story classically designed, the multi-facade luxury tower overlooks Government Cut and Fisher Island and is situated on 12.9 acres of lush, tropically landscaped gardens and green spaces. Its awe-inspiring two-story grand lobby designed by Wilson & Associates showcases intricately-laid marble, while the vast, resort-style lagoon pools and serene outdoor landscaping were crafted by Bradshaw, Gill & Associates. The building's beautifully constructed infinity pool is set against 1,000 feet of stunning, unparalleled waterfront panoramas.
Homes feature oversized terraces with shimmering glass railings and kitchens with custom European cabinets, granite countertops, Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, and elegant under-counter lighting. The spa-level bathrooms are highlighted by Kohler fixtures, Whirlpool tub with waterfall spouts, and imported marble flooring, while the entryway features an exquisite, finely crafted 8-foot solid core wood door.
