Professional fur storage is listed among the amenities at a sought-after new tower on Miami’s Fisher Island. Not surprisingly, the project answers demands for larger homes with more services within the exclusive community where residents’ incomes per capita are among the highest in the country. Only residents and guests with prearranged security clearances can make the short overwater journey by yacht or ferry to the 216-acre haven.
The 10-story Palazzo Del Sol building will accommodate 47 new homes for owners seeking the privacy, diversity, and amenities of Fisher Island. Earlier this year, a Russian buyer paid $35 million for the largest unit, a seven-bedroom penthouse. Less than half of the units—measuring between 3,800 square feet and 9,800 square feet and priced from $6.5 million—are still available.
Existing Fisher Island residents hail from more than 45 countries and include Hollywood elite, billionaire businesspeople, and professional athletes. The island offers an international school for residents’ children, a beach club, a nine-hole golf course, a tennis center, a spa, a deep-water marina, and eight dining options. Exclusive to Palazzo Del Sol will be a screening room, a hair and makeup salon, a playroom, massage rooms, fitness and business centers, an aperitivo bar in the waterfront lobby, plus the fur professionals. Elevators will stop in one of two lobbies and open to a private foyer for each home, which boasts 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows, outdoor spaces, and waterfront views.
