Miami Nice

Over the past 10 years, Miami has been undergoing a makeover. The city used to be seen as little more than a beach resort with skyscrapers, but now it is held up as an international centre of design. In addition to hosting large design fairs likes Design Miami, the city is being graced with a growing number of museums and other buildings designed by the world’s top architects, including Herzog & de Meuron and Zaha Hadid.

Designer residential developments appearing in the city include The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach, designed by Italian Modernist architect Piero Lissoni. The three-hectare estate on the shores of Surprise Lake will have 111 condominiums, 15 villa and a marina.

“Lissoni’s modern and artistic design will create a development that will change the Miami Beach skyline and how we look at luxury living,” Ophir Sternberg, chief executive of developer Lionheart Capital, says. Condo prices start from Dhs14.6million.
