"Strategically scented"

At 1000 Museum at 1000 Biscayne Blvd., for example, the plan is to offer Miami's first private helipad on a residential tower. There's also a long list of amenities, including a spa, aquatic center, valet, doorman and a system for strategically scenting the building. The most recent sale was for a 4,600-square-foot unit on the 29th floor that sold for $5.25 million. The groundbreaking is set for the first quarter of 2014.
It's the latest example of movement in the super-luxury market.
This year, the number of properties selling for more than $5 million increased more than 24% from last year, according to data from TrendGraphix, a market research group.
"But the real standout player was the ultra-prime properties priced over $10 million, which saw an impressive 50% increase, with 15 of those properties closing in the first six months of the year," Ms. de la Vega said.
