Sunny Isles Beach Real Estate & History
The Sunny Isles Beach Pier was created in 1936 and the area soon became a popular destination. This became even more apparent when the 5 mile long pier was designated as a historic site in 1982. The Golden Strand was the first four-story hotel on the beach in the area and was constructed in 1946. Many celebrities, including Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly and Benny Goodman, enjoyed these beautiful beaches. Today, you will still see fishers and sightseers. This area also became what is known as the new Millionaires Row of Miami Beach.
The Sunny Isles Beach real estate was developed slowly with the first single-family home being built in the Golden Shores area in the 1950s. During the 50s and 60s, a number of motels popped up along Collins Avenue. One of the first happened to be the Ocean Palm, the first two-story motel in the U.S. There were also a number of exotic themed motels that became popular destinations of tourists who traveled from far and wide to experience "Motel Row." Even The Beatles visited Sunny Isles and hung out at the Castaways Motel's famous Wreck Bar, just south of Sunny Isles Boulevard. This hotel was later demolished and the Oceania Towers was constructed on its site in the 1990s. The complex became very popular and many new residents began to call the popular oceanfront community home.
Sunny Isles real estate also changed face at about this time. New luxury hotels, condos and condo-hotels are now neighbors to the exclusive Golden Beach homes to the north and Aventura to the west. You also can't forget the famous Bal Harbour area with Bal Harbour shops and luxury oceanfront high-rises and 5 star condo-hotels. With all of these amenities and conveniences, Sunny Isles Condos are an ideal place to live, work and play.
