Mast Capital has completed its first luxury condo project in the sought-after South of Fifth neighbourhood

Known for leading marquee transactions in Miami and beyond, real estate investment firm Mast Capital now proves its expertise in luxury development with the completion of Louver House, the firm’s first condo project in its diverse portfolio. Designed by award-winning Miami-based architect Rene Gonzalez, Louver House is a testament to the level of quality and high design that Mast Capital will deliver to subsequent projects. The four-story building brings 12 residences to the sought-after South of Fifth neighborhood and pays homage to the rich history of Meridian Avenue.

“We’re excited to finally present Louver House because it has all the key elements buyers are looking for in today’s luxury residential real estate market,” said Camilo Miguel Jr., CEO of Mast Capital. “To us, luxury is about amazing finishes, expansive spaces and the ability to enjoy a sense of privacy. This building offers a unique lifestyle that places residents in one of Miami Beach’s most exciting neighborhoods, but because of its small scale, also serves as an exclusive, family-friendly enclave.”

Architect Rene Gonzalez incorporated the South of Fifth community’s distinctive elements, like its lush tree-lined streets and storied past, into the very fabric of the building. He started by preserving the memory of a historic Belvedere bungalow that was once on the Louver House site. In its exact place, he created a louvered bungalow that will be the focal point of the entrance. Mast Capital also brought on artist Michele Oka Doner to create artwork that will hang in the lobby area. The space will be draped with plants from landscape architect Savino & Miller. 

“The architectural design for Louver House has everything to do with the beauty of the building’s surroundings; we wanted to create a substantial and substantive piece of architecture that pays deference to its environment and urban condition,” says architect Rene Gonzalez.

With only four residences remaining, Louver House commenced closings in mid-August. Buyers, who are predominantly end-users, can now move in and start enjoying their large, landscaped terraces; proximity to the beach; the property’s beach concierge service as well as its neighboring shops and restaurants. 

Remaining residences range from 2,088 to 2,432 interior square feet, asking $2.5 million to $3.1 million. Sales and marketing for the Louver House are exclusively handled by ONE Sotheby’s International Realty. For more information please visit:
