New renderings are out for Faena House, the 18-story, alero-happy Miami Beach project designed by Foster + Partners.
The 47-unit building by Argentinian fashion designer and developer Alan Faena offers one- to five-bedroom, fully furnished residences with connecting aleros, or mega-terraces. Expect the condominiums to be dominated by floor-to-ceiling windows walls and sliding doors, some as wide as 12.5 feet.
Located on the waterfront at 3201 Collins Avenue, Faena House will eventually anchor the new neighborhood of Faena District Miami Beach.
The homes will have private or semi-private elevator vestibules, 10.5-foot ceilings (up to 13-foot ceilings for penthouses), master bathrooms with double sink vanities and separate bathtubs, choice of white Venetian Terrazzo of 8-inch light white oak flooring, motorized blinds and teak entrance doors. Most residences have laundry rooms, and the two- to five-bedroom homes will tout service entrances.
Especially of note are three penthouses, each with panoramic views of the beach, bay and downtown skyline. In March 2013, the full-floor duplex penthouse, completed with a private interior elevator, rooftop pool, cabana and kitchenette, went on the market asking for $50 million. The rooftop pool looks something like this:
Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, valet and concierge, secure private underground parking with valet service, a spa with sauna and steam rooms, gym with ocean views, lounge, children’s playroom, residents-only beach club with cabana service, landscaped pool, children’s pool and gardens.
The tower is already 50 percent under contract after breaking ground in January and will be completed in Fall 2014, according to a press release.
