The Portofino in South Beach (“Portofino Tower”) is a stunning 44-story masterpiece of design that was one of the first of the new “ultra-luxury” high-rises to emerge in the now trendy South of Fifth (SoFi) area in South Beach. Needless to say, this pioneering condominium – located on the waterway that connects Biscayne Bay to the Atlantic Ocean – offers substantial comfort and is on par with the highest standard of living available in the city. Constructed in 1997 by renowned developer Jorge Perez, the Portofino Tower pioneered luxurious living in South Beach.  Its contemporary residences were among the first to feature expansive floor plans, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and stunning views of the city and water, all of which remain signature characteristics of its residences to this day.  Residences range from 1,090 to 4,510 square feet and from 1 to 4 bedrooms, including magnificent penthouse suits.  Unit amenities include stunning custom kitchens with world-class appliances from brands such Subzero and Miele, deluxe powder rooms, and elegant baths with luxury installments and marble vanities. In line with its pioneering introduction of unparalleled luxury, the Portofino has an ample array of amenities. These include several pools, a renowned spa, a stunning 4-story lobby, billiards rooms, theater, sauna and steam room, and even an exclusive private club on the 29th floor.  Services include 24-hour security and professional, well-connected concierge. Without a doubt, the Portofino is sure to provide a quality of life that is almost unmatched by any condominium in Miami Beach.  Best of all, you’re never too far from the world-class beaches, restaurants, boutiques, and other offers of the trendy SoFi area.
