Just twenty minutes north of South Beach, and right outside Aventura and Bal Harbour, the city of Sunny Isles Beach is a small seaside village with international stature. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west, there is a decidedly island ambience here made special by quaint cafés, neighborhood bistros, and friendly locals. The Residences occupy one of the area’s most beloved residential neighborhoods, adding to the quiet elegance and serene beach atmosphere so uncommon elsewhere in South Florida.
At the same time, all the fine dining, shopping, first-class entertainment, professional sports, art, culture, and glamour of Miami and Fort Lauderdale are only a car ride away including the famous Bal Harbour Shops, Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive, The Miami Design District, Brickell Avenue, A1A, and Las Olas Boulevard.
A winding drive, facing the ocean, leads up to the stunning 649 ft. residential tower, comprised of 212 residences and managed by The Ritz-Carlton. Sitting on 250 ft. of oceanfront property along South Florida’s pristine Sunny Isles Beach, the building’s curvilinear structure was designed by world-class architectural firm Arquitectonica and references the organic landscape of swaying dunes. Its fluid droplet silhouette ensures all homes are bathed in natural light and respect the basic principles of Feng Shui.
Designed to provide sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, the tower features cascading terraces with ample 360-degree views. Penthouse gardens dissolve at its uppermost crest, creating the silhouette of an impressive yacht or cruise liner. In addition, The Residences features a grand porte-cochere and lush landscaping created by Arquitectonica GEO.
A fully equipped private residential building, with no transient use or hotel on the premises means residents of the property enjoy a private elevator lobby, and select homes include service quarters.
