About Residences by Armani/Casa
Global fashion designer Giorgio Armani is bringing his flair to a new condo project in South Florida.
The 60-story Residences by Armani/Casa will rise on an oceanfront site at 18975 Collins Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach, in a partnership between Jorge Pérez’s Related Group and Gil Dezer’s Dezer Development.
Star architect César Pelli, who designed the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Miami, was tapped as the architect for the Armani project.
The condominium will mark the first U.S. project by Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio, which has designed interiors for condos in other locations: Maçka Residences in Istanbul, Turkey; The World Towers in Mumbai, India; and Century Spire, in Manila, Philippines.
Working under the direction of the fashion designer, the Armani/Casa Design Studio will designate interior materials, colors, finishes and custom-made furnishings designed to reflect the setting and architecture. In a statement, Armani, CEO of Armani Group, said the Sunny Isles project provides “the opportunity to create something really very special — a remarkable living space, imbued with the spirit of modern elegance.”
The tower will include 260 luxury units and is planned for completion in 2016. The Armani units will range mostly from 2,000 square feet to 3,500 square feet.
