After the German automotive brand opened the new Porsche Design Tower along Collins Avenue in Miami, it’s Aston Martin’s turn to construct a towering condominium, this time along Miami’s Biscayne Bay Boulevard just beside the InterContinental hotel.
Aston Martin announces its recent partnership with G and G Business Residences in designing the new Aston Martin luxury condominium in Miami, Florida. Like Porsche, the British luxury sports car manufacturer is also setting out with a new venture into real estate development.
Aston Martin Residences will come with 391 luxury condo units, ranging from 700 square feet one-bedroom apartments to 19,000 square feet duplex penthouses with their own private pools. Other than offering a good view of the ocean, the tower’s 55th floor also offers an infinity pool for all owners to enjoy. The prices for each unit starts at $600,000 and goes up to $50 million.
Headed by Marek Reichman, the design team worked at every part of the tower to ensure it embodies the brand’s styling cues down to the last detail. According to him, the condominium will serve as an “extension” of the brand’s “enduring appeal”. With 80,000 units, ninety five percent of which are still in existence, Reichman considers Aston Martin vehicles as timeless, beautiful sculpture. Over the years, people have either kept their Aston Martins or handed them over down to the next generation. Because of this, they want the building to possess the same elegant style that “goes beyond form”.
The developers have already unveiled its sales center on site to give prospective clients an overview of the 66-storey Aston Martin Residences. Located at the heart of Biscayne Boulevard Way in Miami, the Aston Martin Residences sales office opened for the first time last 22nd of May. During the event, the real estate developer had even set up an Aston Martin Vulcan right at the lobby for a more exclusive ambience.
The $2.3 million 820 bhp Vulcan on display is one of the 24 units ever built by the British car maker. Just like the vehicle’s interior, the waterfront building will be featuring the same door handles with hand stitched leather finish. The front desk meanwhile will also feature Aston Martin’s carbon fiber accents and aniline leather trims.
G&G Business Development will hold its groundbreaking this fall and is anticipating the completion of the project by 2021. The 1.25-acre property was bought in 2014 for the price of 125 million USD.
