October 1, 2014

Piero Lissoni’s First Architectural Project in the U.S. is a Seven-Acre, Waterfront Development That Will Redefine Tropical Modern Living in Miami

Miami, Fla.– Lionheart Capital announced The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach, its newest ultra-luxury residential development in South Florida. The Residences, located on seven acres in a quiet corner of Miami Beach on the shores of Surprise Lake, will bring together renowned Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni’s modernist vision with the legendary service of The Ritz-Carlton to redefine Miami modern living. When completed, it will be the only stand-alone Ritz-Carlton Residences in Miami Beach and one of a select few in the world.

The Residences are Piero Lissoni’s first architectural project in the U.S. and are being completed with award-winning Miami architecture firm Stantec Architecture. This expansive, amenity-rich property will feature gardens, pools, entertainment spaces and 36 private boat dockages for 111 condominium residences and 15 single-family lissoni-designed villas. The two- to five-bedroom homes range in size from 1,700 to over 11,000 square feet, in a selection of 60 unique floor plans, with striking interiors also custom-designed by Lissoni.

“The fusion of Piero Lissoni’s modernist vision with the unrivaled service and legacy of The Ritz-Carlton is a rare offering, unmatched in South Florida,” said Ophir Sternberg, CEO of Lionheart Capital. “Lissoni’s modern and artistic design will create a development that will change the Miami Beach skyline and how we look at luxury living.”

Each home will be equipped with a Piero Lissoni designed, Boffi kitchen, oversized stone countertops, Gaggenau appliances and built-in coffee systems, along with equally impressive Boffi master bathrooms and designer fixtures. Every residence will be wired for smart-home technology. Many homes will include private elevator foyers, sprawling terraces, summer kitchens and private plunge pools.

In line with the long-standing tradition of excellence synonymous with The Ritz-Carlton name, these Miami Beach residences will include a collection of premier, resort-style amenities unparalleled in the greater Miami region. Owners’ amenities will include a waterfront social room with a bar; a catering kitchen; tropically landscaped half-acre roof-top pool deck with stunning views of Miami Beach, Downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay; an expansive infinity-edge pool with a waterfall, spacious cabanas, whirlpool spa and poolside Grille Restaurant; a club room with a bar, virtual golf and billiard table; a cinema-quality private theater; and the world’s first residential art studio designed by Lissoni in collaboration with homegrown Miami artist, Tatiana Blanco.

Another unique feature of The Residences will be the on-site private boat dockage and a captained 40’ VanDutch private day yacht for Intracoastal and beach access. Owners will have the opportunity to rejuvenate in a private spa treatment suite, steam rooms and a sauna, meditation garden, indoor and outdoor yoga studios, and work out in a state-of-the-art fitness center. There will also be an exclusive residents-only restaurant and a library/conference room. In addition, The Residences will have two attended lobbies with 24-hour concierge service, valet parking, a pet salon suite and full, personalized concierge services.

Perfectly located in a tranquil and charming residential community of Miami Beach where lake, ocean and waterway meet, The Residences will be the last project of this magnitude that can be built in this part of the city. Just a short distance to the area’s top-tier schools and steps away from the prestigious Upper North Bay Road, residents can enjoy the famed shops of Lincoln Road, the Art Deco District of South Beach and the central business district of Downtown Miami/Brickell and then return to the comfort and quiet of their homes in mere minutes.

Set on the only lake in Miami Beach, the Developers’ vision for the existing structure was to strip it to its core elements, preserving its height and uninterrupted views. The result is 126 exquisite Residences surrounded by a neighborhood of upscale single-family homes on the shores of Surprise Lake.

The Residences are priced from $2 million to $40 million. Address: 4701 North Meridian Avenue; telephone: 305-953-9500.
