Miami’s Luxury Real Estate Makes a Statement with High-fashion Brands

Oct 23, 2017 October 23, 2017

Love the finer things in life? Swear by your brands? What if you could “live” in one of your favorite brands? In Miami you can do just that. From Fendi to Armani and Porsche, the luxury branded condo trend has hit Miami in a big way.

An Obsession Realized…

In Miami’s exploding real estate scene, developers have been rushing to grab waterfront locations, posh addresses and starchitects to move their next luxury offering into the spotlight. But, somewhere in the past six years came the realization that they were missing that “X” factor. They needed something special to capture the attention of the global elite and set their offering a class apart. Enter luxury branded condos.

A Study In Branded Luxury Condos…

Dezer Properties first announced the development of the Porsche Design Tower back in November, 2011. The real estate world went abuzz with – one, a Porsche-designed tower coming to Miami, two, a futuristic elevator that lets you pull your car up to your personal garage in the sky. By February 2012, the luxury condo tower already had 15 buyers before it could get a sales center or even a decent website.
 
The roaring success of the Porsche-designed condos was enough to spark a trend. This was the missing X factor that developers needed to build buyer confidence in a crowded market (and be able to charge a premium as well).

It’s a win-win…

According to a report by management consulting firm Bain & Company, personal luxury goods sales reported slower growth worldwide in 2016. In America particularly, the luxury market really struggled with a growth of -3%. Consumers are now focusing on luxury experiences rather than goods; a trend backed by 5% growth in the segment. It is no wonder that high-end brands are choosing to tie-up with developers to create permanent structures as a constant reminder of the luxury and lifestyle associated with their name. The move is also on-point with the latest consumer trend of “seeking truly innovative brands”.
 
So, if you want to revamp your brand image, or build consumer confidence in a slowing market - build a luxury condo and get people to “live” the experience!

Penthouses are the pinnacle of condo living. Living in a penthouse means waking up to sweeping views and expansive living spaces that feel like a home in the sky. Add on luxury amenities and, well, now you’re getting the picture. While it might sound cliche and too good to be true, this is the reality of owning a penthouse. But what really is penthouse apartment or condo? And are they worth it? Read on for answers to all of these questions about penthouses. So what IS a penthouse? Penthouses are, historically, a separate build on the very top of an apartment block or hotel, fitted with the best interiors, and both indoor and outdoor space.

Distinguished by their opulence, as well as their world-class views, they were immediately popular and became synonymous with status and wealth (read...

Opinions and Advice Anatomy of HOA Fees: Are Miami Condo Fees actually High?
Condo living is often considered more convenient compared to single family houses. Someone else does almost all of your maintenance -- be it the yard, the roof, the pool, you name it. Plus, there’s typically always some kind of security/surveillance. Amenities like swimming pools, gyms and front desks staff are a standard. And, if you buy into a luxury condo, you can get access to full-service spas, wine cellars, golf simulators, lounges, or even art galleries are all part of what you can call home. And while some think there’s a price for these conveniences and little luxuries, the overall cost is about the same as living in a home. The only difference is when living in a condo, you pay one monthly fee for all this, and it’s called your HOA fees or condo fees. Especially in a city like Miami, condos pack in the entire gamut of resort-style amenities fit for a year-round staycation. Not to mention, there’s usually a team of starchitects and internationally renowned designers behind...

Real Estate News Love Miami Vice? Mid Century Modern? Miami’s Most Luxurious Vintage and Retro Condo Buildings are Calling
While many of Miami’s bold, new constructions are unequivocally gorgeous, the city has a long-standing reputation for charming and delightful architecture, earned by the many fabulous design visions from our colorful, subtropical past. In fact, there are still many Miamians and design aficionados among us who, in fact, prefer the classic and timeless appeal of living in a historic or vintage edifice over the temptation of the super luxe and brand-spanking-new buildings sprouting up.  Older buildings also come with time-tested, solid construction, combined with the aesthetic charm of architectural design, complete with materials and finishes, from a bygone age. Another bonus of some of Miami’s art deco, mid century modern and retro condo buildings is they often have larger floor plans.  For those interested in learning more about Miami’s top vintage condo buildings, read on… Art Deco: A Miami Beach Legacy (1930’s - 1940’s) The Carlyle Condo Hotel - Miami Beach, FL - Photo courtesy...
