Neighbors at Miami Beach’s “Billionaire Bunker,” Faena House, are about to receive some very high-profile neighbors. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are in contract to purchase an oceanfront 4 bedroom apartment that is set to close in January.
Unit 5A was originally listed for $15.5 million, but sources close to the seller report that it is in contract for $14 million with a quick closing to the superstars. The famous family is certainly no stranger to top-of-the-line real estate. They are notorious for making amazing deals on opulent properties and this apartment is no different.
The Faena Complex was envisioned by Alan Faena, the famous Argentinian developer and includes a 5-star hotel as well as an art complex designed by Rem Koolhaas. The residential tower was designed by Foster+Partners, featuring a stunning and iconic curved modern design.
The new Kardashian-West beachfront home features a total of 6,246 square feet including the terrace (4,730 interior square feet). The condo is designed by Fanny Haim and custom finishes by Molteni. Have a look at the stunning interior!
If you have ever dreamed of living on a full-service private island with a rooftop pool, look no further than the Prive Penthouse. A short drive down Island Estates Drive on Williams Island will dead-end into your opulent destination, Prive Island, which opened in the summer of 2018.
The twin 16-story towers each contain 80 homes with private elevators and flow-through layouts, which are currently 85% pre-sold. The crown jewel of these residences is the penthouse collection, with each penthouse featuring a rooftop pool and garden overlooking the water. Although four penthouses remain, today I would like to feature Penthouse 06, as it has received a price reduction of over $600,000 this week, down to $5.9 million. Until this September, the penthouse was priced at $8.5 million.
With over 4,750 square feet of interior space, the new listing price represents just $1,240/square foot of interior space, which is really a great price for a penthouse on a private island! Inside the apartment, owners enjoy 15-foot ceilings as well as skyline and water views from all rooms. There are 5 full bedrooms and 6 baths with a powder room for guests and a service suite. Outside, there is a 3,280 square foot terrace with a full-sized rooftop pool that is private to the residence as well as a summer kitchen.
On the island, owners have access to a private marina for yachts up to 150-feet in length, and expansive pool deck with sunrise and sunset views, a jogging trail around the island and a lighted tennis court. Inside the amenity center, residents have access to a two-story 10,000 square foot gym/spa with a view of the toddler play room, a private dining room with catering kitchen, wine cellar and tasting room, cigar lounge and a business center. A handful of guest suites are available for purchase on this level, however these are an upgrade to an already-purchased apartment. They are not available to the general public.
Aside from the penthouse units, tower residences are available between $2.1 million and $3.6 million, or for a shorter commitment, they are available to rent for $11,250 to $16,500 per month. The prices do change frequently, so if you are interested in a tour or more specifics about the property, just let us know.
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.
Property Markets Group (PMG) has finally announced what is in store for 300 Biscayne, a lot on which they have been quietly planning “something amazing” for over a year. It was released today that Miami is getting a Waldorf Astoria!
At 1,049 feet, it will surpass Panorama Tower as the tallest building in Miami and will become the tallest building South of Manhattan. Even New York’s iconic Chrysler Building stands 1,046 feet in the skyline, so this is really something significant. The tower is designed by Miami’s Sieger Suarez Architects, who are also responsible for the designs of South of Fifth’s Apogee, Murano Grande, Marea as well as Muse in Sunny Isles and Privé in Aventura among others. All of these buildings are stars in our skyline and with the stacked cube design of the new Waldorf Astoria, it is sure to be in good company.
While prices have not yet been released, we do know that PMG is planning a 140-key hotel and 400 condos that will break ground next year. The condos will have bay views overlooking the Port of Miami across the street from Bayfront Park and the building is walking distance to the American Airlines Arena, the Perez Art Museum and the Frost Science Museum. The sunset views will overlook Downtown Miami’s historic district including the 1928-built courthouse that housed Al Capone during his 1930 trial along with the beautiful DuPont Building that was built in 1939.
PMG is also responsible for developing ECHO Brickell, another star in the skyline as well as Muse in Sunny Isles, ECHO Aventura, and 111 W 57th Street in New York’s “Billionaire’s Row.” They are operating as co-developers with Greybrook Realty Partners from Toronto and S2 Development from Miami.
“We are thrilled to bring the rich history and heritage of this hotel brand to Miami,” said PMG’s principal Ryan Shear via press release. “The city continues to thrive as a top global destination with increasing arts, culture, tourism, fashion and luxury brands. The partnership is a major milestone for Miami’s real estate and hospitality industries.”
If you would like to be among the first to receive floor plans and purchase opportunities, please reach out to us and we will make sure you receive the information you need. This is a very exciting day for Miami!
