Sales Launch for Auberge Residences’ First Tower
After lots and lots of planning, the Related Group is having the grand opening of the new Auberge Residences Miami sales center in typical Miami style with a launch party this week. The developer appears to have adjusted to softening market conditions by erasing the planned second and third towers from renderings and putting them off while they focus on the first. However, by the look of everything else related to the project, this is still very much Miami, where decadence and financial profligacy still reign.
The 60-story tower will have 290 units (far fewer, of course than in the three-tower configuration), 90 suites managed by Auberge Resorts, lots of art, outdoor pools on the 12th floor and 60th floor, and a spa with what in a rendering appears to be an indoor pool. The 12th floor will have other amenities galore, including a wine room, cigar lounge, club room, media room, restaurant, etc. Downstairs, restaurants and retail will activate the street. The structure is being designed by Arquitectonica, with exterior spaces by landscape architect Enzo Enea. Piero Lissoni is doing the interiors.
Prices are in the $500,000s for one bedrooms with dens, under $1 million for 2 bedrooms, and in the low $1 millions for three bedrooms. Penthouses, some of which are duplexes, range from $1.7 to $4.1 million.
