St. Regis Residences – Sunny Isles Beach

Groundbreaking – August 2023 | Completion – 2026

Breaking ground on the tallest condo towers in Sunny Isles Beach, developers Fortune International Group and Chateau Group completed a major milestone this August. Set to rise 750 feet or 62 stories each, the St. Regis towers will replace the Estates at Acqualina (672 feet), upon completion, as the tallest in the neighborhood.

Designed by Arquitectonica, the first St. Regis-branded tower will rise with 175 luxury condos, ranging from a generous 2,000 to an enormous 10,000 square feet in size. The second tower, rising to the same height, will feature even fewer condo units at about 120. Initially, the St. Regis towers had more condos between them, but as many buyers chose to combine units into larger residences, developers decided to downsize the number of units, while increasing the size of the residences.

Furnishings in both resident-only towers will be curated by Artefacto, while EDSA will handle landscape design. Interiors will be handled by Sao Paulo-based designer Anastassiadis, who is best known for her exceptional attention to detail while creating luxuriously comfortable environments.

With about 53,372 square feet of photovoltaic glass covering the western façade of the buildings, the two towers are expected to produce about 530,000-kilowatt hours of clean energy per year – giving residents a superior lifestyle while caring for the environment.

Besides access to the St. Regis’ benchmark butler services, these residence-only towers will house 70,000 square feet of amenities. Highlights include two public restaurants (beachfront and lobby), separate oceanfront and sunset-facing pools, private beach facilities, a wellness center and spa, a clubhouse with a private dining area, a coworking center, eight guest suites (available for rent by owners), and more. 

Sales for the second tower are expected to launch this winter. Find more details in our exclusive preview video featuring the St. Regis Sunny Isles Beach.

Prices start at about $5 million, with a choice of two- to five-bedroom residences.

Troubles for Location Ventures as Rishi Kapoors Exits

Following Rishi Kapoor’s resignation from his post as CEO of Location Ventures this July, trouble has been brewing for several of the firm’s condo projects. Location Ventures and its Urbin affiliate were developing multiple condos, co-living, and coworking projects throughout Miami, including the Edition Residences Fort LauderdaleUrbin Coconut Grove and Urbin Miami Beach.

  • Urbin Miami Beach could be seized in a $14.85 million foreclosure lawsuit by Coral Gables-based 1234 Washington Acquisition LLC. The complainant alleges that the owner failed to repay the loan upon maturity on June 1, did not pay its 2022 property taxes, and did not maintain property insurance. In case the plaintiff succeeds, money held as reserve for condo buyers and project vendors could get wiped off. The project broke ground in November 2022 but construction is currently suspended due to a lack of building permits.
  • 1200 Minorca Acquisition, managed by Robert Gutlohn, has filed a foreclosure lawsuit against a Location Ventures entity developing Urbin Coconut Grove for the nonpayment of a $2 million mortgage secured by parking lots at 1200, 1250, 1260 and 1270 Minorca Avenue in Coral Gables.
  • Despite launching sales, the future of Edition Residences Fort Lauderdale remains uncertain, since Location Ventures is yet to close on a land deal for the project.

Located at 2180 Brickell Avenue, the site has great potential and can be redeveloped as a five-story building carrying 54 condos or apartments. It also sits adjacent to Aria Development Group’s proposed five-story boutique urban oasis called 2200 Brickell.
