Less than 50 days after launching a new sales campaign, the unsold condos in an oceanfront South Beach project with 259 units on Collins Avenue have been "withdrawn" from the retail market, according to a new report from

It is unclear why the units were officially removed from the retail market. A review of Miami-Dade County records shows a series of actions by the owner of record - Sandy Lane Residential LLC in care of the New York City-based Chetrit Group LLC - in 2011, including filing notices to conduct interior renovations of at least two units and obtaining city of Miami Beach approval to construct an eight-foot gate and implement landscaping upgrades, according to government records.   

On June 27, 2011, a dozen units that had previously been available for purchase at an average asking price of $706 per square foot at the Paradiso condominium conversion were taken off the retail market after less than seven weeks, according to an analysis by the licensed Florida real estate broker CVR Realty™

The properties – being marketed under the name “The Residences above the Gansevoort” or "24th & Collins" - were originally listed for sale on the retail market on May 12, 2011 with units ranging in asking price from $578 per square foot to $804 per square foot, according to Florida Realtors association data.

The change in retail strategy comes despite the project having 255 unsold units as of June 30, 2011, according to an analysis based on the Condo Vultures® Official Condo Buyers Guide To South Beach™.

Developers created 37 projects with nearly 5,600 units in the South Beach neighborhood during the South Florida real estate boom beginning in 2003.
Prior to the real estate boom, South Beach - a historical district with a large number of Art Deco, low-rise structures - had 110 condo projects with 10,800 units.
As of June 30, 2011, South Beach has sold 79 percent of the condo units created during the real estate boom, according to a new report.
It is important to note there are various stages to a residential real estate transaction in South Florida. 
A transaction begins when a property is made available for sale and ends when a title is conveyed from one party to another party as a result of the recording of a deed with the local government. 
As part of the process, a property typically goes under contract and into a due diligence phase by which a deal can be canceled. 
The new condo sales report is based on completed transactions where a deed is recorded and taxes paid as a result of the sale.
