A number of companies have been getting into the real estate development market recently, including some companies that you might not have expected. Aston Martin is known for making high-end automobiles and helping to make James Bond look great on the silver screen. However, this British carmaker is now expanding its ventures. Not only have they started to make powerboats, but they are also working on a new luxury condominium in Miami.
The New Building
The building will be located on a 1.25-acre lot near the mouth of the Miami River. The building, when completed, will be 66 stories high and will include 390 units. Of course, when Aston Martin does something, they do it with a sense of style, and that’s just what you will find when it comes to this building’s sailing-inspired design.
The building, which is going to be called the Aston Martin Condo Miami, will feature seven luxury penthouses, as well as a duplex penthouse. Each of these large units will have their own oversized terraces as well as a private pool. The rest of the units that will make up the building will include between one and four bedrooms. Many of those units will have fabulous views of the surrounding area.
Overall, this seems like a very smart licensing deal for the auto manufacturer, and it will give them the opportunity to tackle some other residential condo projects in the future if they choose. It’s about more than just having the Aston Martin name on the building though. An Aston Martin design team will be designing the common areas of the building, as well as the spa, lobbies, and the fitness center. Of course, you can certainly expect to see quite a bit of branding throughout the building including the door handles and even the color palettes used.
The goal is to give the buyers a unique experience and to make this more than just another Miami condo. By using Aston Martin, they can immediately equate luxury with what they are offering with the building.
Of course, Aston Martin is not the first car company to get into the real estate business. Porsche Design Tower is another popular option when it comes to branded condominiums.
When Will It Be Ready?
Construction of the building is not scheduled to start until sometime around mid-2017. They believe that it should be completed by 2021. Currently, there is no information on the overall price of the construction or of the individual condos. Since this is going to be a luxury complex though, you should expect the prices to be in line with the price of similar units in the area.
If you have always wanted to live a James Bond lifestyle and you’ve been contemplating getting a Aston Martin condominium in the Miami area, you might just want to wait to see what Aston Martin Condo Miami has to offer. It might just be the perfect place to call home for international super spies and those who simply want a luxurious life.
