Building Spotlight: Blue Diamond

Soaring 46 stories above the Atlantic Ocean is the elegant Blue Diamond residential tower. This Miami Beach jewel was completed in 2000 and developed by the Continental Group and designed by the architect firm of Robert Swedroe. The building is so named for the diamond-like beacon atop the tower that sprays blue hues over the city.

Each residence has floor to ceiling windows, European-style kitchens, 9’-10’ ceilings, marble baths and generous balconies offering panoramic views of the ocean, Indian Creek and the city skyline.

There is also 500’ of private beach with cabanas. Residents and their guests may choose from a variety of on-site ethnic restaurants as well as cafes and bars.

Blue Diamond offers easy access to the Venetian Causeway, La Gorce Golf Club and the bike trail connecting to South Beach. Next to Blue Diamond is its “sister” tower, Green Diamond.
