MIAMI-Marquis, a new condominium building at 1100 Biscayne Blvd., has topped off at 67 stories, making it the second-tallest building in Miami at above 700 feet. Giving the project even more distinction is a claim by its owner that the majority of units are sold.

The project by Leviev Boymelgreen Marquis Developers LLC includes 306 luxury residences and a 10,000-sf spa and a 56-key boutique hotel operated by Colorado-based RockResorts, a company with four- and five-diamond hotels in five states. Eleven Biscayne Hotel & Spa will be the company’s first resort in Florida.

Martin Rozenblum, managing director for Africa Israel Holdings, the project’s main investor and a major international developer with operations in over 14 countries, says 80% of the Marquis residential units have been sold. He credits the successful sales, even during the ongoing condo crisis, to the uniqueness of the building itself.

“Marquis offers a unique lifestyle which no other project in South Florida can at this point,” Rozenblum tells GlobeSt.com. “We’re going to have an ultra-luxury hotel, which we’re working to qualify as the first six-star hotel in the area. Our condo residencies will have the services of the hotel, including room services, concierge and even housekeeping.”

Each of the residences, which range in price from $1 million to $15 million, will be accessible through high-speed elevators and outfitted with private balconies, 10-foot-high ceilings, Viking kitchen appliances, and sweeping views of Biscayne Bay and the Downtown Miami skyline.

Located in the Park West district of Miami, Marquis is slated for completion in spring 2009. The architecture is by Arquitectonica and the project promises an overt arts theme, with original artwork to be displayed throughout the building. “We are partnering our project with leading cultural institutions in the region to provide residents of Marquis an inside to a life of arts, culture and entertainment,” says Rozenblum.
