Unveiling a special payment plan developed in association with mortgage broker Regal Group International to smooth the approval process, developer G&G Business Developments announced a
unique, smart way of financing an Aston Martin Residence. The program allows clients to finance their luxury condo from day one, offering greater freedom to manage their portfolios.

The plan allows the buyer to make equal, fixed monthly installments for the term of the loan, post the initial payment.

Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...
