Miami’s Luxury Condos Built for the Mega-Rich and Their Toys

Miami’s Luxury Condos Built for the Mega-Rich and Their Toys

Mar 11, 2018 March 11, 2018

When you have spare cash lying around that runs into six figures, indulgences are a given. But, even as it is easier to shop for exotic cars, mega boats, art pieces and even sports teams, the real catch is ‘where to house those beloved toys?’. Sure, custom built mansions are an option, but Miami’s developers have a simpler solution – move into your very own ultra-luxury condo that’s built to accommodate such expensive toys.

Ultra-luxury in Miami Condos - The New Normal

Developers in Miami definitely know how to keep up with the lifestyle and needs of the super rich. Gone are the days when a fitness center, swimming pool, spa, club room or concierge desk were considered special. Nowadays, these are just regular amenities. The condo scene in Miami has moved on from offering ‘luxury’ to ‘ultra-luxury’.

What’s ultra-luxury you ask? Read on below to find out, plus which Miami condos are bringing their A game:

Porsche Design Tower – First-ever Residential Automobile Elevator

18555 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles Beach

From Batmobiles to humbler Ferraris, your prized possession will stay parked in front of your eyes at all times. Even if it means taking it up to your 55th floor penthouse! Yes, the legendary car makers at Porsche and Dezer Development paired up to bring the first-ever residential car elevators to Miami. Simply drive into the lobby, sit and enjoy sensational water views on your way up, and exit straight into your sky garage. Only a glass wall separates the living area from the garage.
Besides, if driving around in the real world ever gets boring, simply hop into the clubroom for a spin on the four-car race simulator. You can also indulge in a round of virtual golf or catch a nightcap from your private wine locker at the lobby-level restaurant.

Aston Martin Residences – Rooftop Helipad + Superyacht Marina

300 Biscayne Boulevard Way, Downtown Miami

This one isn’t just built in collaboration with 007’s favorite carmakers, but is made to enjoy the Bond life as well. There’s a rooftop helipad for whenever you need to skip town in a rush. Pull out your mega-yacht from the backdoor marina facility and work on your tan at sea.
A 52nd floor art gallery, virtual golf and two movie theaters provide ample entertainment with privacy. Not to mention, you will be living with Aston Martin’s authentic colors, textures and touches all around such as number plinths, leather door tabs and more.

One Thousand Museum – Rooftop Helipad

1000 Biscayne Boulevard, Downtown Miami

Here’s another one for those who can afford to skip rush hour traffic. Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum comes with a private rooftop helipad. Almost all structural materials are imported from Dubai. And, the exoskeleton of the building is not just for visual effect, but opens up precious floor space.
There are a couple more standout reasons to buy into this dramatic building. There’s custom scenting in residences and common areas. The building has Miami’s first high-security vault only for residents. 3 to 4 parking spots for each unit (that’s definitely ultra-luxury in Miami). And, it’s the last masterpiece by late starchitect Zaha Hadid.
