A TALL claim by the developers G&G Business Developments for the luxury residential tower ‘Aston Martin Residences’ has started its long climb into the sky. On June 30, 2019 a massive pour of concrete was completed.
Some 14,000 cubic yards of concrete to form the base of the tower that will rise to 818 feet or 250 metres and 66 luxurious levels above the city of Miami, Florida.
With apartments ranging in size from 700 to 19,000 square feet, the apartments and penthouses are priced from US$750,000 to more than US$50 million. G&G have announced that more than 50 per cent have already been spoken for, sold.
The select 391 condominiums, as apartments are known on the other side of the ‘pond,’ are expected to be ready for occupation by 2022.
Aston Martin Lagonda have lent their name to the tower hence ‘Aston Martin Residences,’ and their design team are designing the amenity spaces throughout the building, led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman who commented “one of the greatest of joys of design is seeing your work come to life.
As this is Aston Martin’s first foray into real estate we are especially keen to see the tower start to take shape.”
The tower is located at 300 Biscayne Boulevard Way, Miami. With the foundations now laid the tower can start to rise and has now reached the first floor.
German Cato, CEO of G&G observed, “It is always exciting when a project reaches this stage and we expect the first floor to be in place by the end of August. By Christmas we expect to have eight floors completed and from there the only way is up until we reach the 66th floor.”
The shared public spaces named ‘Sky Amenities’ cover 42,275 feet or 3,927 square metres will be spread across four floors connected by a glass staircase starting at the 52nd floor.
On offer to start with is a curated art gallery, business centre, conference room, children’s playroom, a teen centre, games room, fitness and spa lounge, spa, beauty salon, barbershop, treatment suites, virtual golf, two movie theatres, infinity pool, pool cabanas, sky bar, pool concierge, grand salon, private dining rooms, and hairdressing salons.
The penthouses can accommodate at least four bedrooms as well as staff accommodation.
Terraces in the sky to take the air and enjoy the view, a resident may even enjoy a walk around the exterior of a penthouse. Space for a gym and sauna as well as the essentials; the personal private pool high above the Atlantic.
‘Aston Martin Residences’ has its feet in the water, the Atlantic Ocean actually, so access to the sea shore is a given. The tower’s butler service can even arrange to lay on a yacht for you to enjoy a personal cruise on the waters as well as much else besides.
A resident need only leave the tower to take an excursion or regretfully return to work.
