The duplex condo legendary Miami architect Morris Lapidus once made his private home has sold for $1.3M. At more than 2,600 square feet, the unit is among the largest in the bayfront Terrace Towers, which Lapidus designed in the early 1960s. Significantly altered since Lapidus' day—the architect passed away in 2001, leaving behind a legacy that includes The Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels—the two-bed, three-bath condo was most recently renovated by enterprising flippers, who purchased the space for $900K in April 2012. They then set about turning the midcentury pad into an open concrete loft, but retained the enviable outdoor space and added a modern kitchen, bathrooms, and an outdoor shower, before selling for a six-figure profit. Thankfully, much of Lapidus' original interior was removed to the Bass Museum prior to any demolition.
