Every year tons of celebrities flock to the sun-kissed beaches of South Florida to relax, catch some rays, and enjoy a tropical cocktail on the sand. Miami is a top vacation destination for celebrities who want privacy and luxury in a steamy setting. Celebs like Madonna, Christian Slater, Ricky Martin, Lenny Kravitz, Shakira, Hulk Hogan, Matt Damon, Sylvester Stallone, and Gianni Versace have all called Miami home. Most celebrities make their home on South Beach, specifically Star Island, Fisher Island, and the surrounding areas. But for the most discerning celeb there is no better address than 800 South Pointe Drive—home of the Apogee.

The Apogee condo is located in the South of Fifth neighborhood, a swanky neighborhood known for its expensive restaurants and unparalleled ocean views.  The Apogee is tucked away at the most Southern edge of South Beach surrounded by landmarks like Joe’s Stone Crab, Prime One Twelve, Smith & Wollensky, and the Miami Beach Golf Club. The condo has only 67 units on 22 floors making it a highly exclusive residency. The waterfront views and gorgeous interiors courtesy of design firm Yabu Pushelberg create a modern oasis with a contemporary feel.

The Apogee has put a big price tag on their luxury units. A condo at the Apogee can cost anywhere from $2,945,000 for a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom unit to $11,500,000 for the 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom penthouse. President of the Miami Heat basketball team, Pat Riley, has a unit in the Apogee (and $160,106.62 worth of taxes to pay on the condo according to a public record search.) HSN vitamin guru Andrew Lessman also has a place in the Apogee. Recently actor Michael Caine put his corner unit at the Apogee on the market for a cool $6,995,000.
