Welcome to Miami

    The northern tip of Miami Beach will soon share the area’s white sandy beaches with three new buildings, comprising the St. Regis Resort and Residences, Bal Harbour. The 27-story towers will house 260 one-, two-, and three-bedroom condominium residences, each facing 1,000 acres of private beach. A staff of chefs will be available for both private dinner parties and in-room meals, eliminating the need to reserve a table or private dining room to host a dinner for 2 or even 20. Homeowners at the St. Regis Bal Harbour have separate amenities from both the resort and from hotel guests, including use of personal valets, detached entrances, and private swimming pools and grounds where only residents can roam. One-bedroom homes start at $1.9 million. (www.stregisbalharbour.com)
