In addition to the units, the building will include 35,000 ft.² of amenities and a private beach resort with 300 feet of water frontage.

The Armani/Casa residences have been making this a reality for a couple of years now. This one-billion-dollar project is set to open in the fall of 2019. This is a 56 story property designed by Dezer Development and the Related Group and is designed to be some of the top residences along Miami Beach.

The Penthouse will include a master bath with white onyx, beautiful custom cabinetry in the kitchen, sleek lines, beautiful finishes, gorgeous floors, and luxurious layouts. And to top it all off, the Penthouse comes with an Italian trip to meet Giorgio or money himself. According to the Wall Street Journal, this a one-time amenity includes meeting founder Giorgio Armani, whose company designed interiors and finishes of the building and specifically the six-bedroom duplex on the 53rd and 54th floor. This 6000 square-foot Penthouse will include two first-class round-trip tickets to Milan, a two-night stay at the Armani Hotel Milano, a private tour of Armani's flagship store after hours, dinner for two at Armani Ristorante, cocktails with Armani, and a signed copy of Armani's book. 180 units have been sold since sales kicked off in 2018.
