KDHamptons Real Estate: The NEW Ritz-Carlton Residences, Sunny Isles Beach Has Hamptonites Heading For Miami
New Yorkers have always invested in Miami real estate, and in recent years there has been a fast growing number of Hamptonites specifically who are migrating south for an extended off-season. With the power of new world class developments like the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Sunny Isles Beach it’s no surprise that many East Enders are trading in their snow boots and choosing to maintain an oceanfront lifestyle year round. With a quick and easy two and a half hour flight, multiple private airports, and a new level of buildings, service, art, dining, shopping….Miami checks every box!
The Ritz-Carlton is synonymous with unparalleled service and unrivaled excellence. Renowned developers Fortune International Group and Château Group aim to transform oceanfront living with this stunning new property which begins with a winding drive, facing the ocean, leading up to the stunning 649 ft. residential tower, comprised of 212 residences and managed by The Ritz-Carlton.
Sitting on 250 feet 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.
Inspired by Monaco’s elite Yacht Club and referencing the beauty of the natural environment, Michele Bönan’s timeless interiors are a mosaic of details brought to life in a refined, neutral palette. Bönan’s unique philosophy adheres to the building’s soft curvature, introducing floor-to-ceiling glass panels and custom-designed furnishings that perfectly evoke the exclusive Sunny Isles Beach.
The Residences’ interiors epitomize a contemporary minimalist aesthetic, complemented by a vast array of exceptional materials, textiles and environmental innovations, all selected to ensure unrivaled comfort and relaxation. Relying on skilled artisans, everything from furniture to flooring has been conceived to honor the luxurious beach lifestyle.
Upon arrival, owners are greeted by a striking four-story glass lobby, overlooking a tranquil pool and manicured garden connecting to the beach. An airy double height atrium leads directly to a luxurious spa and fitness center with unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean. Whether intimate or grand, Bönan’s common spaces are created to enhance the experience of residents across the property.
Drawing from South Beach’s 1960s heyday, Michele Bönan’s design blends the spirit of modern day Miami with its rich architectural past. Residences boast soaring 10 ft. ceilings, and kitchens designed with the finest Italian cabinetry, stone countertops and European appliances – including a wine cooler and cappuccino maker. Expansive living spaces look onto the beach below. Master bedrooms, equipped with glass walls and enviable panoramic views, feature walk-in closets and generously appointed en suites rendered in Italian marble.
