Default Marquis Condos

Has anyone toured these condos? What did you think of the views and what do you think of the neighborhood? How would you get Brickell (drive, cab)? I've looked at Icon, Epic, The Plaza, Jade, and the The Emerald. My favorites were Icon, Epic and Jade. However, I was thinking of looking outside Brickell in the hopes of improving my buying power. Input, please. Thank you!

Marquis is a very nice building. You could easily get to Brickell by using the Eleventh Street Metromover Station... it's right behind the building.

Personally the building is a little further north than I like; however, there are two things going for it:
1) It's a luxury building and 2) It's well positioned to benefit from Museum Park development. Assuming development continues and spurs from not only the economic recovery but also the Museum Park development, I think it has great future resale value. If Miami World Center (currently canceled, I believe) or something similar ever comes to fruition, that would add even more value.

Right now as it stands, it's a very beautiful building in an area too far north for my taste. I like downtown and Brickell right around the Miami River.

If you don't mind being out of the core a little, can look to the future, are in it for the long haul, and get a good deal, I think it's a fabulous place to live.

Thanks for those thoughts. I agree with everything you said. I would prefer to be in Brickell, but I am not getting the pricing I want or the views. The Marquis location is not ideal, but the views look fabulous, I want a bay and city view, and the unit layouts are great. Of course the downside is that I will have to drive everywhere, but at least I won't have to drive far.

check 900 Biscayne and Marina Blue too

prices are smaller, view is better, and you're closer to Brickell (also if few steps closer :-) )

Adding in that if looking at a Marina Blue condo, units ending in -08 have the best views because they're corner units and have walls of glass looking out to both the bay and downtown/Brickell.
