There are some spectacular condominium developments sprouting in Miami but the proverbial ‘crème de la crème’ is the FAENA HOUSE, one of seven Faena creations in the FAENA DISTRICT MIAMI BEACH. What is a FAENA DISTRICT? It’s a $1 billion dream (transported to reality) of Argentinean hotelier/real estate developer Alan Faena, whereby an entire urban development anchored by arts and culture is created. FAENA DISTRICT BUENOS AIRES was the first, and is a confirmed success.
Spanning north and south from FAENA HOUSE, which is the epicenter of the project and located at 3209 Collins Avenue, and land locked between Indian Creek and the Atlantic Ocean will be the glorious assemblage of the FAENA SAXONY HOTEL, FAENA ARTS CENTER, FAENA BAZAAR, FAENA GARDENS, a car park, and a marina. The full-floor penthouse at FAENA HOUSE (LP $50mil) is where my dream begins. Yes, I would leave my haven in South Miami for that gorgeous penthouse with the dreamy private rooftop pool. White Venetian Terrazo floors, glass walls, and sinfully large balconies are the backdrop, with too many other features to mention, so click here for those details and a millionaires price list.
FAENA gracefully credits “THE COLLABORATORY” for creating and executing the dream. Could not have been done without Foster+Partners, Rem Koolhas / OMA, Baz Luhrmann, Catherine Martin, Studio Job, and Miami’s own infamous landscape architect, Raymond Jungles.
