Pordes Residential is taking over sales of a boutique townhouse development in Bay Harbor Islands as it nears completion.

Land Developers Group hired the brokerage to handle the remaining nine townhomes, which is about 64 percent of the 14-unit Palm Villas project at 9870-9880 East Bay Harbor Drive. It launched sales in 2016, and has only sold five townhouses since then.

Over the past year, Pordes Residential was also brought in to take over sales and marketing by the project developers of KAI Residences, 101 Bay Harbor and Bijou Bay Harbor, all in Bay Harbor Islands.

The brokerage, led by Mark Pordes and Adam Kaufman, plans to reach out to buyers in the Northeast and Canada.

“The market in general has been a little slow, but there definitely are sales here,” Kaufman said. Read more here:The Real Deal Miami

Developers Ugo Colombo and Valerio Morabito just bought the Bay Harbor Continental site for $20.5 million.

Property records show the partnership paid P3 Investments about $400 per square foot for the 1.2-acre development site at 1135 103rd Street in Bay Harbor Islands. It was previously approved for a seven-story, 29-unit boutique condo project designed by Italian design firm Pininfarina.

Colliers International South Florida’s Larry Stockton and his team represented both the buyer and seller.

Colombo was out of the country and unavailable to comment on plans for the site, according to a spokesperson.

P3, led by Carlos Malagoni, paid $16.5 million in April 2016 for the site, records show. It has 300 feet of bay frontage, according to a release.

P3 spent several years overcoming hurdles to prepare the site for development. The Bay Harbor Continental, a 35-unit co-op built in 1938 and designed by architect Charles McKirahan, was granted historic designation status early 2015 by the Miami-Dade Historic Preservation Board.

Many Brazilians are buying at such condo developments as One Thousand Museum, Three Hundred Collins and Turnberry Ocean Club.

Many wealthy Brazilians are buying real estate in the Miami area again after a retreat during the last two years.

Fernando de Nuñez y Lugones, executive vice president of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, told Mansion Global that Brazilians are starting to buy more U.S. properties after many of them canceled purchases last year.

De Nuñez cited a recent increase in Brazilian interest in units at Turnberry Ocean Club, a 54-story condominium in Sunny Isles Beach, where 21 percent of the international buyers have been Brazilians.

At Three Hundred Collins in Miami Beach, Brazilians have bought four of the 16 luxury condos sold so far during the construction phase of the 19-unit development, which has units priced from $1.7 million to $9 million. Three Hundred Collins is expected to be completed in October.

Louis Birdman, co-developer of One Thousand Museum, a 62-story condominium in Miami designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, said 40 percent to 45 percent of the preconstruction buyers are Latin Americans, and more than half of the Latin buyers are Brazilians.

The Bay Harbor Planning and Zoning Board sent the architect of a proposed condominium project back to the drawing board.

Sea Moon Inc.’s development plans for Capriccio, a 30-unit building on 9800-9900 West Bay Harbor Drive were rejected for approval in a 4-1 vote on Tuesday night. After a nearly two-hour review of the site development plan, which was previously approved by consultant town planner Michael Miller, the board asked architect Gustavo J. Ramos to revise multiple elements of design.

“There are things from my standpoint that don’t work right now,” Bay Harbor Islands Vice Chairperson Jerome Gavcovich said during the meeting, specifying problems with the condo’s parking lot, proximity to the street and trash disposal system for residents.
