Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach and the Salvatori connection
The award-winning Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach features Salvatori natural stone
Salvatori’s involvement in The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach
Among the projects we worked on over the past year was the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Miami Beach, an exquisite collection of condominiums and villas designed by Piero Lissoni and developed by Lionheart Capital. It is little wonder that the accolades are already rolling in, including being ranked the #1 Residential Development in Miami Beach by Elite Traveller and awards for its architecture.
The entire experience was a joy for us, and to explain a little about how it was for the other players in the process us, we invited our American partners to answer a handful of questions. With no more ado, we hear from Allison Greenfield, the Chief Development Officer of Lionheart Capital.
Could you tell us about The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach project?
The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach is Piero Lissoni’s first architectural project in the US and was developed by Lionheart Capital. This expansive, amenity-rich property features gardens, pools, entertainment spaces and 36 private boat dockages for 111 condominium residences and 15 single-family villas. The two-to-five-bedroom homes range in size from 2,000 to over 10,000 square feet, with a selection of over 60 unique floor plans and striking interiors also custom-designed by Lissoni Associati. The Residences was completed in February 2020 and units are priced from $2 million to over $40 million. The Residences feature unique and one-of-a-kind amenities that include the world’s first residential art studio, a half-acre pool deck, multi-sport simulator, private cinema, children’s playroom, pet grooming room, house car, spa, private day yacht, beach club access and a beach concierge, and of course, the gold-standard concierge service that would expect of The Ritz-Carlton to take care of every resident’s need.
How is the residential and hospitality real estate world changing?
As clients become more sophisticated the need for quality buildout and materials is becoming more important. End users expect a luxurious experience and are aware when the construction quality does not live up to that standard. At The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach, we used Salvatori stone in the common areas as well as in individual units’ bathrooms. It was very well received by our discriminating high-end clientele.
Why did you choose to work with Salvatori?
Salvatori does not only have beautiful quality materials and a culture that is dedicated to the integrity of the design of the project but it also has a reputation as a strong business partner, a company with integrity that delivers on time and on the specified terms.
How did you find the experience of working with us?
Working with Salvatori was a pleasure. Having been in the business for so many years they were able to add value to the process of selection and delivery in ways that were new and extremely useful to us as the developer.
What aspects of the collaboration did you particularly enjoy?
We enjoyed the hospitality and organisation of the entire Salvatori family starting with the CEO Gabriele and all of his wonderful staff who facilitated the process enormously.
Would you work with Salvatori again at some point in the future?
Absolutely! The quality of the materials, the dedication to design, the company integrity and the highly organised manner in which they execute their work is exactly the kind of company we like to work with on all of our projects.
Attention to detail is part of the Salvatori DNA, and we particularly understand just how vital that is in large-scale projects where all the components and players need to be able to be relied upon to play their part in bringing often complex designs to life. We relish challenges, seeing them as an opportunity to test our ingenuity and come up with solutions and ensure our clients are not only satisfied but delighted. If you have a project coming up, get in touch and our team of professionals will be delighted to provide any information or assistance.
