Buenos Aires Meets Hollywood in Miami Beach

Real Estate Agent with EWM Realtors, Inc.


With new developments popping-up all over South Florida these days it is easy to clump them all together as your typical highrise. However, this would be a big mistake with one of these new developments, that is, the new development on Miami Beach headed by Alan Faena, which he has branded as the Faena District Miami Beach. This development sets itself apart in two important ways.

Firstly, the team behind this development is unique. It is headed by world renowned Alan Faena, an Argentine developer-alchemist who most recently transformed Buenos Aires' rundown Puerto Madero district into real-estate gold. Also part of the team are two of the most respected and innovative architects, Roman and Williams, who are set to work on the project. Lastly, he recently brought on board Baz Luhrmann, one of the more creative film directors in recent years, and his wife and collaborator Catherine Martin to provide an unknown creative role in the project. Bringing together such a creative team sets this development far apart from others in South Florida and we are all very excited to see what the finished product will encompass.

Secondly, the sheer size and scope of this development is enormous. The centerpiece of the Faena District will be the Faena House, which is an extraordinary, 18-story oceanfront luxury condominium. In addition to the Faena House, the development includes a hotel, Arts Center, Bazaar and Artists-In-Residence Center, Park, Marina, and Gardens! This is one of the largest and complex projects in South Florida in recent years.

This development will undoubtedly change the landscape of Miami Beach and create a rich thriving neighborhood, which may increase the property value of the surrounding area. From my recent showings we found some properties in the surrounding area that will likely become very desirable in the future because of the Faena development. Please see the highlighted property below and if you would like to see a complete list of the properties please send us an email.

What a fantastic view and the building sounds wonderful.  I wish I could dip my feet into some clear blue water about now.
