The demolition of the Best Western hotel located on the future site of Chateau Ocean has begun. The Chateau Group purchased the 2.99 acre oceanfront property for 50 million dollars last year. Chateau Ocean should be completed in 2016.
Located on a prime site in Surfside, Chateau Ocean will include less than 100 luxury condos. The Arquitectonica-designed building will offer rooftop decks, oceanfront pools, private cabanas, a lobby bar and a restaurant. The condominiums in Chateau Ocean will range in size from 3,500 square feet to 10,000+ square feet.
The Chateau Group is also developing Chateau Beach Residences in Sunny Isles Beach. For more information on oceanfront condos in Chateau Ocean or Chateau Beach, contact Niki Higgins immediately.

The Chateau Group has submitted plans to build two buildings in Downtown Miami surrounding the iconic Freedom Tower. The first proposed building would be located at 600 Biscayne Boulevard, the same address as the Freedom Tower, with the second at 700 Biscayne Boulevard.
The 600 Biscayne Boulevard tower would rise 704 feet. The 700 Biscayne Boulevard tower would rise 709 feet. Both buildings could potentially dwarf the 256-foot Freedom Tower. If the Chateau Group’s towers are built, they would undoubtedly impact Miami’s skyline. However, past plans to build at each location never came to fruition.
The Chateau Group has been active in Miami lately. The developers are also responsible for the luxury condo projects Chateau Beach in Sunny Isles and Chateau Ocean in Surfside.
Chateau Beach Residences in Sunny Isles
February 05, 2013
This past December Manuel Grosskopf and his father Sergio Grosskopf launched construction on their first U.S. project, the Chateau Beach Residences, a luxury oceanfront condominium tower located in Sunny Isles Beach.
The Grosskopfs, originally from Argentina have been investing in South Florida real estate for several years. The Chateau Group, owned by the father and son team helped to finance the luxury condominium towers 900 Biscayne and Quantum on the Bay, both located in Miami. The Chateau Group is known for developing malls and luxury condominiums in Buenos Aires the capital of Argentina.
Construction on Chateau Beach Residences, located at 17475 Collins Avenue began in December and will be finished in about 24 months. The luxury oceanfront condominium will be 35 stories with 84 residences and various two to five bedroom floorplans. The residences will include floor to ceiling windows for the breathtaking ocean and city views. The oceanfront condo tower will also include a Penthouse with a private swimming pool.
About 60 percent of the condos at Chateau Beach Residences are already sold, according to Manuel Grosskopf. Many of the buyers are foreigners from Argentina, Brazil, Russia and Columbia.
Once Chateau Beach Residences is complete, development of Chateau Ocean will take place. Chateau Ocean is going to be another luxury oceanfront condominium tower located in Sunny Isles Beach, just South of Chateau Beach Residences. The location is currently the site for a Best Western Motel. The Chateau Group purchased the site for million last spring.
The Grosskopfs saw the potential in Sunny Isles Beach years ago.
“We saw a beautiful piece of property on the ocean between Bal Harbour and Aventura,’’ Manuel said.
Sunny Isles Beach went from a small resort area to one of the hot destination spots for new oceanfront condominium towers in Miami.
