Residences by Armani/Casa, an iconic glass tower on Miami's Sunny Isles Beach, celebrates ‘topping off’ moment.
The Residences by Armani/Casa is one step closer to completion as major US developers, Dezer Development and The Related Group, have announced the ‘topping off’ - or 'topping out' of the tower at 649 feet and is on track to complete as scheduled in the summer of 2019.
The development team and the tower’s general contractor, Coastal Condominiums, and executive architect, Sieger Suarez Architects, commemorated the topping off of the 56-story contemporary glass tower designed by world renowned architect César Pelli with a luncheon for over 500 construction workers, engineers and other contractors involved in the project.

“This announcement is another major milestone for Armani/Casa’s first branded real estate project in the U.S.,” said Gil Dezer, president of Dezer Development. “We’ve always been proud of the special characteristics of this unique project but seeing Residences by Armani/Casa coming to life and now in its final dimensions is a great moment."
“We are extremely pleased to bring the internationally-celebrated talents of César Pelli and Giorgio Armani to Sunny Isles Beach, further defining Miami as one of the world’s leading addresses for elegant living and sophisticated design,” said Jon Paul Perez, Vice President of The Related Group. “Residences by Armani/Casa, with its world-class team of designers and architects, has already delivered a new dimension to South Florida’s ultra-luxury, high-end real estate market.”
Units at Residences by Armani/Casa currently range in size between 2,713 and 5,963 sq ft (252 and 554 sq m) and prices for the remaining units range range between $3.1 million for a three-bed apartment to $17 million for the tower’s duplex penthouse.
The Residences by Armani/Casa will feature over 35,000 sq ft of incomparable amenities across two floors, all exquisitely designed and custom-furnished by the Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio under the artistic direction of Giorgio Armani. Appealing to the most sophisticated of buyers, Residences by Armani/Casa’s amenities include a Lounge on the lobby level, a fine dining restaurant, cigar room and wine cellar, heated swimming pool, ocean-facing fitness centre, two-story revitalisation spa with indoor and outdoor treatment rooms, movie theatre, and clubroom.
The lush outside features exclusive beach amenities on a 300' stretch of private shore complete with a three-acre garden oasis designed by the tower’s award-winning Swiss landscape artist, Enzo Enea, as well as monumental sculptures by internationally recognised artists, Sandro Chia and Boaz Vaadia.
Robert Green, the founder of Sphere Estates, which is joint UK agents with Aylesford International on the development, says: “As the building celebrated its official ‘topping off’ - aka 'topping out' last week, the developer has begun focusing on attracting more buyers from the UK and across Europe. Demand is picking up, and there have been more than 20 enquiries from the UK in the past week.”
