Aston Martin Residences opened its anticipated sales gallery last week in downtown Miami with an unusual feature: an Aston Martin Vulcan, which besides being rare—one of only 24—is extremely powerful, pumping out over 800 horsepower from its V12 engine.
The 66-story luxury tower planned just east of the Epic Hotel expects to break ground in the Fall with an targeted completion date in 2021. Located at 300 Biscayne Boulevard, the interiors were designed by Aston Martin EVP and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman while Revuelta Architecture and Bodas Miani Anger crafted the sail-shaped tower.
“In this, our first residential development, the interiors are inspired by Aston Martin, but take into consideration Miami’s tropical environment,” added Reichman. “Our design language is based on beauty and the honesty and authenticity of materials. It’s simple and pure and it has an elegance attached to beautiful proportions. We are incorporating AstonMartin’s DNA through subtle details and fine craftsmanship, with an emphasis on comfort.”
The G and G Business Developments project has residences ranging from 700 to 19,000 square feet, and are priced from $600,000 to $50 million—the latter represents a new approach, as units were initially thought to be no cheaper than $2 million.
Meanwhile, among the building’s amenities likely won’t be its planned private beach club on Virginia Key, which faced opposition from the city.
