Our Neighborhoods Lake Placid

Community By David Snelling, Reporter Thursday, May 6, 2021


Lake Placid is a Miami Lakes condo community with 102 units. It was originally an apartment complex called Angelic Point.

The building was built in 1968 by The Sengra Corporation, which later became The Graham Companies.

The property was converted to condominiums in 2006.


The community is along Lake Placid Court and south of Lake Patricia Drive. A canal is near its southern border.

The condos are single story units in buildings that have three stories.

There are one and two bedroom condos with up to two baths.

The buildings in the complex surround a community swimming pool.

The Lake Patricia Shop- ping Center is in walking distance.

What does it cost?

Each owner pays $200 or $300 in monthly homeowner’s association fees, de- pending on the size of their units, said Yvonne Miranda, the HOA’s secretary.

Miranda says the fees cover the use and maintenance of the swimming pool and lounge deck, garbage and trash pick-up and utilities, including water.

Miranda said there is currently one condo for sale, listed at $180,000, that has two bedrooms and two baths.

Lynn Matos, a Realtor and sales associate for RE/MAX Unique Realty, said eight condos were sold between 2007 and 2020 at prices ranging from $101,053 to $142,927.

Who lives there?

Miranda said people move to Lake Placid because it’s near the Miami Lakes K-8 Center and several pocket parks.

She is also said it’s a safe neighborhood and residents treat each other like family.

“Everyone looks out for one another,” she said. “It’s a quiet community and residents feel safe here.

“The community is close to a good school, and we keep the property and com- munity clean,” she said.

Miranda said the condo community has a mixed population of young, middle age and senior citizens.

“We are a family-oriented community,” she said.
