Auberge Resorts Collection To Manage Landmark Residential Project On Fort Lauderdale Beachfront
MILL VALLEY, CALIF. (October 30, 2014) – Auberge Resorts Collection, the leading portfolio of boutique luxury hotels and residences worldwide, today announced its first project in Florida: Auberge Beach Residences and Spa Fort Lauderdale. The first project of its kind in Fort Lauderdale, the 171-unit beachfront condominium property will be the only on-the-sand luxury residential offering in the destination. Florida’s premier developers, The Related Group and Fortune International Group, in partnership with The Fairwinds Group of Fort Lauderdale, have appointed Auberge to oversee every aspect of the lifestyle at what will be the most refined project of its kind in Fort Lauderdale history.
“Our presence in Florida represents the continued evolution of Auberge Resorts Collection as a luxury brand that redefines resort and residential experiences in the world’s most desirable destinations,” said Craig Reid, Chief Executive Officer, Auberge Resorts Collection. “We are delighted to collaborate with Florida’s most prestigious development team and bring our signature style of luxury to what will be a market-making project on this stretch of Florida’s Gold Coast.”
Auberge Beach Residences Fort Lauderdale will be developed on the best beachfront site in the destination, a 4.6-acre parcel that is the former home to Ireland’s Inn Beach Resort. Housed in two iconic structures, the condominium residences will be characterized by a façade of cascading terraces, many with private pools. The 171 residences will range in size from 1,500 to 5,000 square feet and will all have sweeping ocean views. Prices will range from $1.5 million to $8 million.
“Auberge Beach Residences and Spa Fort Lauderdale will offer the same style of bespoke personal experience that is found at all our other resorts and clubs,” said Dan Friedkin, Chairman, Auberge Resorts. “This experience has earned Auberge an incredibly loyal and affluent clientele. We believe that the time and the market are right for a residential project of this caliber. It will be a perfect addition to the Auberge Resorts Collection.”
Internationally recognized architectural firm Nichols, Brosch, Wurst, Wolf & Associates, which has designed Miami condominium projects for The Related Group and Fortune International Group, as well as South Florida luxury hotels such as Marriott Marquis Miami World Center, W Hotel & Residences Miami Beach and The Ritz-Carlton Resort & Residences Key Biscayne, has envisioned two light-filled glass towers that will maximize the project’s rare on-the-beach setting and panoramic views with a resort-like ambiance. Departing from South Beach contemporary and traditional designs, the 171-residence property will strike a natural balance with a visual aesthetic that is soft and organic, but also sophisticated and luxurious.
Meyer Davis, an award-winning New York-based design firm whose portfolio includes 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach, W Hotel Mexico City and Capri Hotel Southampton, is designing the interior spaces with a relaxed, yet elegant, beach-chic vibe that honors the serene coastal landscape.
Complementing the private elegance of the residences will be the beachfront private club-style amenities, including an indoor-outdoor lounge and restaurant, an Auberge Spa, meeting rooms, children’s center, swimming pools and gardens, all located at ground level to seamlessly connect the lifestyle to the beach and the community. The signature restaurant will be a lively American bistro concept with a raw bar and an exceptional wine program, a hallmark of Auberge Resorts Collection, whose roots run deep in Napa Valley. Dining and lounging will take place poolside and on spacious decks for long evenings with friends and family under the stars. With indoor-outdoor treatment rooms and a generously sized fitness center, the world-class Auberge Spa is poised to become the ultimate relaxation destination.
Further enhancing the world-class residential experience will be an impressive contemporary art collection in the common areas that will include thoughtfully curated, exceptional pieces from Jorge Pérez of The Related Group, an avid collector of Latin American art who, in 2013, established the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM).
Every detail of the lifestyle at Auberge Beach Residences and Spa Fort Lauderdale will be impeccably managed by Auberge Resorts Collection, one of the most sought-after luxury brands in the hospitality industry, with an unmatched reputation for personalized service, Michelin-starred dining and award-winning spas. Auberge properties are renowned for their unique style of relaxed sophistication and thoughtful attention to detail.
The project is scheduled to break ground in 2015. Sales will begin in December 2014 at 2200 North Atlantic Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale. For more information about Auberge Beach Residences and Spa Fort Lauderdale, visit aubergebeach.com or call (954) 744-1061.
