We’ve seen automakers trying their hand in a variety of industries outside of the world of cars — fashion, watches, yachts, etc. Now, here’s an auto marque that’s delving into yet another sector: Real estate.
British luxury car brand Aston Martin has entered a partnership with global property developer G&G Business Developments. Part of Aston Martin‘s Art of Living strategy, the Aston Martin Residences, a 66-storey condominium, is set to launch in downtown Miami. Construction has already begun at the site on 300 South Biscayne Boulevard Way, a 1.25-acre lot on Miami River, with works on track for completion in 2021/2022.
Designed by Revuelta Architecture and Bodas Miani Anger, the building will sport a striking curvilinear glass and steel structure. General contractor Coastal Construction Group has also been roped in to make sure works are in order. The 391-unit residence will offer one- to four-bedroom apartments spanning 700sq-ft to 19,000sq-ft, with magnificent panoramic views of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
Potential homeowners and investors, you’ll want to get your hands on the development’s seven penthouses and one duplex penthouse, all fitted with private pools and spacious terraces.
The Aston Martin Residences will be equipped with a wide range of amenities across four levels. These include a double-level fitness centre, spinning studio, boxing gym, virtual golf room, art gallery, two cinemas, full-service spa, beauty salon and barber shop. And to up the luxury factor even further, residences will also be able to enjoy direct access to Miami waters with an exclusive yacht marina.
Interiors of the apartments and the condo’s amenity spaces will be designed by Aston Martin’s design team, led by Executive Vice-President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman. Key design elements of the brand will feature all around, such as carbon fibre reception desks in the tower’s two private lobbies, doors with bespoke artisan Aston Martin handles and kestrel tan leather door tabs.
We hear the sales centre has already opened its doors for buyers.
