The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach sprawls across seven lakeside acres amid tropical landscaping, boat slips, and views of the water and city. Due for completion in late 2017, the collection of 111 homes includes lofts, penthouses, and 15 stand-alone villas that range from 2,000 to over 10,000 square feet. Architect Piero Lissoni created a total indoor/outdoor experience, where sleek interiors and lush gardens merge into one.
Residents will also enjoy vast amenities that instill a sense of community, like the Sharing Room—a value-exchange shop where residents contribute and acquire pre-owned luxury items like high-end bikes, lamps, or golf clubs. Larger pieces can be showcased on a mobile app, and goods remaining after 60 days are donated to charities. (Residences available for $2 million to $40 million through Douglas Elliman Development Marketing)
