There may be construction taking place at the front of the building, but this unit is at the back of the building, pretty far from the construction, so once inside it doesn't seem to bother guests. There are also construction materials stored at the back of the building.
Best neighborhood, South of Fifth Street (SOFI).
This is a quiet neighborhood directly on the ocean, very close to great restaurants, shopping, parks, large supermarket, night clubs etc.

About the neighborhood, from NY times article:
"South of Fifth has emerged as the most expensive section of Miami Beach. A string of high-rise condos along the water, which were at the center of the struggle over the city’s development 15 years ago, are selling apartments for record prices.
Last year, a penthouse at one of two Continuum towers sold for $25 million, then the highest sale for an apartment in Miami Beach. In late December, a penthouse at the neighboring Icon tower sold for just under $21 million, a record for a bay-facing apartment in the city.
More than a dozen restaurants, including several considered the most exclusive in Miami Beach, have opened in the neighborhood, which is also home to the 18-acre South Pointe Park."
