The Continuum South Tower is one of the most desirable and expensive addresses in Miami Beach, with prices for a one-bedroom apartment starting at over 2 million US dollars and one of the luxury development's penthouses finding a buyer for 35 million two years ago. 

The blurb reads: "As you pass through the gatehouse, you're welcomed by a front lawn extending to a thousand feet of ocean beach. Where 12-acres of private gardens, pools and fountains are yours to explore. Your own private beach and tennis club is complimented by a four-story spa crowned by a rooftop lap pool. It all happens here. In luxurious residences embraced by walls of glass, 10-foot ceilings and wrap-around balconies. Forty stories above the most exciting 20 blocks on the planet, known as South Beach. This is your world. This is living at Continuum. A unique residential resort glimmering with endless, panoramic views, incomparable luxuries and the full services of valets, doormen, concierges, waiters and fitness trainers. Experience it all. Only at Continuum on South Beach. Miami Beach's luxury condominiums".
