AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT THE NEW RITZ-CARLTON RESIDENCES IN MIAMI BEACH

July 31, 2015

Residential living meets luxury resort in the new complex of condos and villas at The Ritz-Carlton Residences in Miami Beach.

Scheduled to be completed in 2016, the fortress-like property of The Residences offers 15 single-family villas and 111 condominium homes with an oasis of gardens, pools, entertainment spaces and private boat dockages, priced from $2 million to more than $40 million per residence. Lured by the beaches and panoramic views of the Miami skyline, The Ritz-Carlton Residences rethink Miami condo living by going above and beyond Miami’s reputation as an architectural destination.

Master Italian architect Piero Lissoni designed The Residences with what he describes as, “a classical, European approach working around the individual and the context, to respect the nature in which I design.” Lissoni designs projects that contribute substance to the neighborhoods in which they are built so that, “each and every element is designed in harmony with Miami Beach” for a result of, “purism, cleanliness, and openness,” says Lissoni.

The Residences feature 60 unique floor plans with units reaching to over 11,000 square feet and standalone Villa Residences, eight with waterfront views and seven with garden views. With private elevator foyers, sprawling terraces, summer kitchens and private plunge pools, many homes feature state-of-the-art technology and resort-style amenities reaching the highest of expectations. Stepping into the lobby of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, visitors are instantly flooded with a poetic sense of space and light, which Lissoni recounts as, “a tri-dimensionality that will truly move those who enter.”

Behind the scenes of The Residences, Lissoni artfully crafted condominiums to emulate an authentic European living experience with Boffi kitchens and bathrooms, highlighting elegant café-style kitchens with oversize stone countertops and built-in coffee systems. For the bathrooms, “it is almost as if you’re embarking on a spa getaway every time you walk through the doors,” says Lissoni, offering light stone floors and walls, oversized rain showers and jetted soaking tubs.

The new, architecturally distinct Ritz-Carlton Residences in Miami Beach designed by Italian architect Piero Lissoni are now open for private property tours of their on-site sales gallery at 4701 North Meridian Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33140. For a private appointment, call 305-953-9500.
