Inside Eighty-Seven Park by Renzo Piano in Surfside, FL.

Eighty-Seven Park by Renzo Piano Tops Off

One of the most unique boutique buildings in Miami Beach, Eighty-Seven Park, has topped off and is slated for completion in 2019.

Designed by the Pritsker Prize-winning Renzo Piano, Eighty-Seven Park will bring a new level of luxury to the Surfside/Bal Harbour area. The building has 18 floors and just 70 residences overlooking the 35-acre North Shore Park and the Atlantic Ocean. It is located on the northernmost lot in Surfside, so is still incredibly close to Bal Harbour. One of the aspects I love most about the building is that residents will enjoy the public park to the south as well as a private park to the north, giving an atmosphere of serenity while still offering all of the services a luxurious building of this caliber should offer. There is no other location in Miami like 8701 Collins, which is where 87 Park earned its name.

Inside the development, residents of 87 Park will enjoy butler service, 24-hour concierge and security, beach service and a program director. There will be an on-site botanist to ensure that the lush greenery in the common areas is curated perfectly depending upon the seasons.

While socializing with the small group of neighbors, residents can enjoy two oceanfront pools with cabanas, on-site salon, wine bar, a business center, and private picnics in the park. The Fugo Bar on-site will offer cold-pressed juices and organic food and each resident will receive a key to the private park just north of the building, similar to the coveted luxury buildings in New York City surrounding Gramercy Park. The private park will be outfitted by the same designers who built Governor’s Island in New York.

Inside the apartments, residents will have floor to ceiling glass walls with sweeping views of the beach and park and telescopic doors that allow the sea breeze to flow through the apartment on beautiful 75-degree winter days. The kitchens are finished with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and buyers have their choice of an array of natural oak plank floorings, or natural stones.

Given that the building is nestled between two parks and the ocean, Mr. Piano has designed the terrace to appear as though they float over the sea & park. Depending upon the layout, some of the terraces even add an additional 75% to the square footage of the home.

As of today, the project is 80% sold with buyers including Michael Huffington, the Conde Nast family and tennis star Novak Djokovic. You can become a neighbor as well. Although the project is nearly sold out, a nice mix of layouts are available including 2 bedroom plans from $3.1 million up to the $45 million multi-level penthouse. Please let us know if you would like to speak about a specific floor plan or view. We are always here to help. In the meantime, you can browse the floorplans here as well as the photos and video below.

The new Managing Director of Resident Services at One Thousand Museum, Jason Kaye

One Thousand Museum Welcomes Managing Director of Resident Services

Ramping up for their grand opening, One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid Architects has welcomed Jason Kaye as their Managing Director of Resident Services.

Mr. Kaye is an industry veteran and will oversee all onsite operations and lifestyle partners, according to a press release from the development. He will also oversee hotel-level lifestyle partners for the residents of the super-luxury building. If residents need transportation, spa or wellness services, culinary or other lifestyle purveyors, Mr. Kaye will have a solution on-hand. He will also select the first Curator of Hospitality, tasked with catering to every owner’s unique needs whether they are in Miami or vacationing across the world.

This will complement the building’s world-class amenities and offerings including a wellness and fitness center complete with an organic food and juice bar, sky lounge for entertaining, chauffeur service to the beach and cultural hotspots, and more. Management will also be able to arrange transportation via the onsite helipad to and from private FBOs and nearby islands and destinations.

A Miami Beach native, Kaye is uniquely familiar with the local community and has spent the bulk of his illustrious hospitality career overseeing the day-to-day of several high-profile properties.

Kaye’s successful career in the hospitality industry spans 20 years, 15 of which were spent overseeing operations for three oceanfront resorts with over 800 units and a staff of more than 250 people. Upon his return to South Florida in 2011, Kaye joined Marquis Association Management as the Director of Operations, where he oversaw multiple luxury condominiums. For One Thousand Museum, Marquis Association Management created a true five-star, service-driven model specifically for the building.

“One Thousand Museum is arguably Miami’s most anticipated property, and I look forward to putting together a world-class team that will provide an unparalleled lifestyle experience for our owners,” said Jason Kaye. “The building will raise the standard of luxury living, set within a striking Zaha Hadid-designed work of art. We will always conduct ourselves with the One Thousand Museum service pillars in mind: passion, impeccable detail, enthusiasm and humility.”

“With his extensive career and intricate knowledge of what hospitality means in the luxury sphere, Jason will make a great asset to One Thousand Museum and its residents,” said Louis Birdman, co-developer of One Thousand Museum.

There are a few purchase opportunities remaining, ranging from $5 million half-floor residences to the $55 million penthouse. If you are curious about the specifics of the building and/or the purchase opportunities, we are happy to help.

Fisher Island Palazzo del Sol Caroline Wozniacki

Fisher Island Condo Welcomes Caroline Wozniacki & David Lee

Could it be that Caroline Wozniacki and David Lee are anticipating the pitter-patter of little athletically-gifted feet in the near future? Judging from the size of their new $13.5 million condo at Palazzo del Sol on exclusive Fisher Island, that certainly could be the case.

The betrothed sports stars have been quiet about when their wedding date may be, but have emerged as the buyers of this 10,000+ square foot opulent new home with 5 full bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and expansive terraces. Over 2,500 square feet of terraces wrap around the apartment, offering six additional outdoor living areas with views of the Biscayne Bay, South Beach, Port of Miami, Miami Skyline as well as the Fisher Island Golf Club.

It may seem presumptuous that we would anticipate little basketball/tennis prodigies so soon, but the famous couple did mention their intentions for a family to Hamptons Magazine in August of this year.

“Looking to the future for me, I hope to be known as not only an athlete but, once I have a family, also as someone who raised her kids to be good people. That would be amazing,” Wozniacki told Hamptons Magazine in an exclusive interview.

Wozniacki has been settled on the island for several years already, enjoying a slew of amenities including both clay and grass tennis courts to practice on. Regarding the tennis courts and the Fisher Island lifestyle, she told Hamptons Magazine, “They named the hard courts after me—that was such a great honor. I love Fisher Island. It’s so safe and there’s so much going on. You see generations that have lived there forever: kids, parents, grandparents. You’re so close to the buzz and the restaurants [of Miami], but at the same time, when you’re there you feel so relaxed and calm. It’s an amazing place. Mostly we stay at home, but if we’re really adventurous, we’ll go to Milos or Soho House. We like the laid-back lifestyle.”

If they do expand their family in the near future, the kids will enjoy a private beach, an aviary with flamingos, parrots, peacocks and all sorts of other tropical birds, a private school and a host of restaurants. Palazzo del Sol, where their new home is located, also has an amazing children’s play area with an indoor treehouse.

On top of being sports pros, it seems the power couple is also skilled in matters of business. They were able to negotiate a discount of over 20% on their purchase. The property had originally been listed for $17.4 Million. Remaining purchase opportunities range from $7.3 million to $20.2 million, depending upon the individual layout of the apartments and individual amenities offered. Some have private rooftop pools, some have private bayfront pools, among other perks. If you would like more specifics, do not hesitate to reach out. We are happy to help.

Fisher Island Miami Beach Private Club

Tour The Exclusive Fisher Island Private Club With CNBC’s “Secret Lives of the Super Rich”

If you have been curious about what exactly makes Fisher Island such an exclusive address aside from the fact that it is routinely on every one of the “Most Expensive Neighborhoods” lists, here is your chance to enjoy a video preview with CNBC’s “The Secret Lives of the Super Rich.” Sissy DeMaria, a resident of the exclusive enclave and island spokesperson allowed camera crews to cross the channel on the Fisher Island Ferry and document much of what the island has to offer.

The tour showcases the opulent Vanderbilt Mansion, once a winter weekend getaway for the famous family that is now the members-only clubhouse with a restaurant, piano bar, billiard area, and private pool. Residents also enjoy a private beach with white sugar sand that is imported from the Bahamas, a beach club, sunset bar, and a hand-rolled sushi bar.

Sports enthusiasts are pleased to see both clay and grass tennis courts as well as a golf course with a separate restaurant that offers a full menu of fresh salads, sandwiches, and a carving board buffet.

In addition to the clubhouse and sports amenities, residents enjoy their own aviary with flamingos, parrots and all sorts of tropical life. The smaller residents can even attend the posh Fisher Island Day School that boasts a lower student-to-teacher ratio than competing schools and high acceptance rates to the highest ranked private high schools in the area.

Residents can access the island via private boat (the marina can accommodate watercraft up to an astounding 200 feet), helicopter or via the ferry. If you access the island as a guest via the ferry, be prepared to answer to strict security because this is one of the highest security neighborhoods in the United States, even with its own patrol house located centrally on the property.

There are only 700 residents on Fisher Island and most consider it their weekend or vacation homes. Some notable neighbors include Oprah Winfrey, Andre Aggasi, and Robert Herjavek among others. Condos are offered for up to $30 million and feature floor plans larger than most any single family home.

If you would like to learn more about individual purchase opportunities including the newly-constructed Palazzo del Sol and Palazzo della Luna, please reach out. We are happy to answer any questions and offer a tour.

Best Buildings in the Miami Beach Marina

Miami Beach Condos Alongside the Best Marinas on the Beach

Miami Beach is known as a paradise for boaters and water lovers. Fortunately, Miami Beach residents have two fantastic marinas within close proximity to some of the most lavish Miami Beach condos. The Miami Beach Marina and the Sunset Harbour Yacht Club, offer yacht and boat owners the option of purchasing a condo, rather than a Miami Beach waterfront home with a boat slip and dock. Many buyers move to Miami Beach to experience a truly stress-free living experience; that is why they opt to live in a condo because of the luxurious resort-like amenities and attention to detail. Take a peek at some Miami Beach condos alongside the best marinas on the beach.

Miami Beach Marina

One of the best marinas in Miami Beach, is the Miami Beach Marina. This marina grants boat owners easy accessibility to some of the best fishing, sailing, yachting, and cruising in Miami Beach, as there are no fixed bridges to the open-ocean and ample deep waters. This full-service facility, offers 400 boat slips and ample dock space that can accommodate vessels up to 250 feet in length. Every single boat slip at this world-famous marina comes with electricity, fresh water, and cable hook-ups. Patrons who frequent the Miami Beach Marina are lucky that the marina is located in the South of Fifth neighborhood of Miami Beach. This area is home to plenty of high-end dining options such as Prime 112 and Joe’s Stonecrab.

Sunset Harbour Yacht Club

Another great marina in Miami Beach is the Sunset Harbour Yacht Club, which offers a unique equity club membership program that allows owners and shareholders to have access to prime Miami Beach waterfront real estate. This fantastic marina offers wet slips and a gated covered parking area. Additionally, new boat slip buyers are granted membership privileges, which include the use of a private fitness center, a heated Olympic-sized pool, electricity services, fresh water, a personal dock box, and cable hook-ups. This highly sought after marina can accommodate boats and yachts ranging from 45 feet to 150 feet in length. This area is home to The Shoppes at Sunset Harbour, which has everything from gyms, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and more.
