Over-the-top amenities seem to be offered at every high-end luxury residence across the US and sometimes it can be hard to break through the clutter. Wanted to put a round-up style story on your radar for Luxury Travel Magazine, outlining residences that cater to a specific type of buyer– not only with their amenities offered bit through the design, overall concept and unique lifestyle offered (see below).
For the Health-Conscious Buyer:
Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences: Spanning over seven acres in Palm Beach County’s picturesque Singer Island, Amrit is a new paradigm of mindful living for those who are pursuing an unparalleled wellness lifestyle. Merging Eastern traditions and inner science with Western luxury, all enhanced through incorporation of modern technologies and personalized programming, Amrit has been developed to offer a whole immersive 24/7 CUSTOM experience centered around teaching and providing the tools to improve the quality of one’s life by offering expert education, instruction, and influence positive lifestyle changes based on The Five Pillars: nutrition, fitness, mindfulness, sleep, and relaxation.
For the Global Traveler:
Designed to feel like a Portofino-style village, versus another monolithic development, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach has been designed with the global traveler in mind. As celebrated Italian architect Piero Lissoni’s first full-scale architectural project in the United States, the project offers a unique lobby and library space curated with collectible, artifacts, and modern design pieces from local artists across the world. To help their globetrotting residents efficiently get from place to place, the property also offers a navigable marine helipad and helicopter, Frauchser Lido 1017 house yacht, and house car to expedite their connections by land, air and sea.
For the Minimalist:
Three Hundred Collins, a 19-unit boutique residence building located in the exclusive South of Fifth neighborhood of Miami Beach, prides itself on the pristine finishes emulating international epicenters such as NYC, Paris, London, Milan, and more. As the first luxury residential development in Miami by New York City’s “designer for the one percent” Thomas Juul-Hansen, the property boasts his signature Danish flair, minimalist interior design aspects, efficient spaces and sumptuous materialization, extensive customization and a restrained palette showcasing the natural open-air features. The development’s bathrooms feature Kenya Black Honed Marble and Black Travertine marble from Italy that widely contrasts the typically stark white interiors and bathrooms seen throughout South Florida. Scheduled for completion Summer 2018, the property has only two units remaining. Residences are priced from $1.7 million to more than $9 million.
For the Fashionista:
Brickell City Centre’s REACH and RISE, two sleek, 43-story premier luxury condominium towers, boast the ultimate amenity – a 500,000 square-foot three-city block outdoor retail center that weaves into the financial district’s urban streets. REACH and RISE are calling all fashionista buyers to live at the mixed-use development, as it offers over 125 storefronts and three levels of unparalleled shopping, dining and entertainment anchored by an ultra-modern Saks Fifth Avenue, luxury dine-in theater CMX and Miami’s first Italian food hall La Centrale. Residents of the two condo towers can enjoy unique residences, personalized amenities and the ultimate “urban-living” lifestyle with a unique work, live, play style of living.
For Art Lovers:
Completed in 2017, Oceana Bal Harbour, one of the most elite addresses in all of South Florida, features 240 artful luxury residences ranging between $3 million to $30 million. It’s most popularly known for its incredible museum-worthy art collection, a shared asset for the residents, which includes two larger-than-life Jeff Koons sculptures Pluto and Proserpina and Seated Ballerina (Discerning art lovers may have seen its most recent iteration as a sky-high balloon sculpture in the middle of Rockefeller Center). The collection also includes masterworks by internationally-acclaimed artists Callum Innes, An Te Liu, Jorge Mendez Blake, Taryn Simon, Juan Usle and Garth Weiser. Resident art lovers can sun bathe by the pool just feet from one of Jeff Koons pieces Seated Ballerina.
