Miami has gone through many iterations, and it is presently in the midst of its most cultural one. As a modern renaissance takes shape in the Magic City, sophisticates from around the world are recognizing the high quality of life here, and not only making this their home, but also making it a center of art, culture and commerce.
Major museums, institutions of higher learning, corporate headquarters, design firms—they are all planting flags here in this youthful, vibrant city by the sea. Residents of 57 Ocean can be at any of the city’s new attractions within minutes: La Gorce Country Club, shopping at Bal Harbour Shops or Lincoln Road Mall, dining on the incredible Miami River waterfront, or kayaking through mangrove tunnels at Oleta River State Park—all no more than 20 minutes away.
When Multiplan founder José Issac Peres decided it was time to return to Miami, he would settle for nothing less than a legacy project that would lay the foundation for a larger real estate platform in the city he has loved since he first built residential Il Villaggio two decades ago. “In the same way that Il Villaggio was a landmark project in the ‘90’s, changing the landscape of Ocean Drive, we wanted 57 Ocean to be an iconic building on Millionaire’s Row,” says Mr. Peres.
He envisioned a quiet, reserved, contemporary building that emphasized healthy living, right on the Atlantic. The challenge was to locate a piece of land that highlighted the city’s best assets: access to major traffic arteries, direct placement on the beach, and enough space to offer owners numerous ways to live a full and well-balanced life.
57 Ocean catalyzed that vision on a 220-foot oceanfront site, bringing to life a one- of-a-kind boutique tower that is connected to nature in meaningful ways—through its use of natural materials, elegant architecture, intelligent design, indigenous landscaping and the most coveted amenity in the world: direct access to the ocean.
Award-winning architectural firm Arquitectonica has partnered with world-class designers to create a residence that is in complete harmony with its surroundings. Every aspect of the design—including the use of materials, the soft undulating façade, the flow of its interiors—is in constant dialogue with the sea.
From the moment you arrive at 57 Ocean Residences, the ocean beckons. Grand vertical gardens guide you from the porte-cochère through a double-height lobby awash in natural stone, past the pools and meditation gardens, straight to the sand. The transition has never been more seamless: from city, to home, to ocean.
Floor-to-ceiling windows are invitations to nature beyond. Each residence has an open floor plan that allows the living, dining and kitchen areas to merge into one great room, which then spills out onto an expansive terrace—to become a true outdoor living room, ready for relaxing or entertaining.
Among each residence’s private spaces, master bedrooms dazzle with generous proportions that provide his-and-her bathrooms, open-plan walk-in closets and a tropical-modern design that brings a touch of Brazilian flair.
To provide residents with the optimal environment for healthful living, 57 Ocean takes a holistic approach to wellness—from its location on the Ocean, to the choice of natural materials, to the countless opportunities for achieving wellness goals for mind, body and soul.
Anyone choosing to live right on a beachfront in Miami places a premium on well-being. At 57 Ocean, every amenity has been especially planned to ensure a healthy lifestyle. The private spa presents owners with cutting-edge therapies, soothing massages and a thermal suite designed to take them on journeys that energize both body and soul.
Residents and their guests can spend time in the club room that is complete with a chef’s kitchen and outdoor summer kitchen, in the outdoor bar and lounge, or simply reading in the library. Two infinity swimming pools overlook the beach, which is only a few steps away.
On the third-floor sunset deck, the indoor Technogym fitness center and outdoor MyEquilibria gym provide training flexibility while the spa pool allows for post- workout relaxation. The children’s room lets owners entrust young ones with caregivers while they pursue their wellness goals or attend private training sessions.
Brazilian style cannot be easily defined through aesthetics. It is more a way of life: carefree and full of vigor. It is experienced both indoors, through texture and natural materials, and outdoors, through spaces that extend the home. All these elements combine to create an unparalleled sense of warmth and comfort at 57 Ocean Residences.
