The first condominium project in the United States to involve Karl Lagerfeld is slated to open in 2020.
Karl Lagerfeld teams up with The Trump Group to design the two residential lobby spaces at The Estates at Acqualina, a brand new, ultra-luxury residential development in Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach, on the grounds of the Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond Acqualina Resort & Spa.
Following on the heels of the hugely successful sellout of The Mansions at Acqualina which debuted this past fall, The Estates at Acqualina will go even further. No expense will be spared to design and build The Estates, which will be “a spectacular celebration of Art, Architecture and Life.”
“Simply put, The Estates at Acqualina will be the world’s finest residences,” said Jules Trump, developer of The Estates at Acqualina. “Eddie and I wanted our entrance lobbies to be the piece de resistance of our new project, and who better to create these than the master of modern creativity: Karl Lagerfeld. Karl is the world’s most acclaimed designer, and we believe his high-end designs will be greatly valued by our residents, who desire an incomparable level of opulence, luxury, design and style.”
“I am excited by the opportunity to design the lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina and take great pride in knowing that the spaces I create will be such important spaces in the building,” said Karl Lagerfeld. “Not only are they significant because they offer the first impression of the building, they are also the spaces where people come to socialize daily; they are like a common living room. My designs are inspired by the look of each lobby, the building and the destination of Florida especially. The climate is very warm there and I wanted something fresh.”
When complete, The Estates at Acqualina will offer 265 luxurious residences from three to seven bedrooms in two, 50-story boutique towers, Via Acqualina 777 and Via Acqualina 888. Each estate in the sky will be delivered furniture ready, and equipped with the finest appliances, imported stone countertops, smart-home technology and 10-foot 6-inch ceilings. Each master suite will boast his and her bathroom suites with imported onyx countertops and walls and marble floors, a steam mist shower, a free-standing tub, an ocean-view shower and elaborate his and her dressing rooms.
Rising to the north of The Acqualina Resort & Spa, The Estates will include Villa Acqualina, offering more than 45,000 square feet of amenities including a spa and fitness center, a world-class restaurant overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Circus Maximus, a full floor of unprecedented amenities including an ice skating rink, bowling lanes and a movie theater. It will also boast a Wall Street Trader’s Club room where residents will have access to ticker tape, computers and a board room.
