is the latest pre-construction project on Miami Beach. Set on 8 acres of pristine Atlantic oceanfront immediately south of Bal Harbour, The Surf Club Hotel and Residences combines the elegant, purposeful architecture of Pritzker Prize-winner Richard Meier with a unique provenance and history. The result – two 12-story residential towers comprising 150 limited edition homes situated between the ocean and the bay, flanking a smaller building that will house an intimate five-star hotel – offers the opportunity to live on today’s vibrant Miami Beach while enjoying the low-key elegance of a more gracious age.
Since its creation as a private social club in 1930, The Surf Club has played an important role in the cultural history of Miami Beach as a nexus for the most exceptional personalities of the era, from scions of industrial fortunes to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor. The original club’s historical landmark structure, a Russell Pancoast-designed Mediterranean villa replete with ballrooms, bathing cabanas and the legendary Peacock Alley loggia, will be preserved within Meier’s new architectural design.With almost fifty unique configurations within the 150 residences, homes at The Surf Club have been meticulously designed to anticipate the needs of virtually any lifestyle.
Richard Meier’s innovation and commitment to excellence is reflected in his work on both the exterior and interiorarchitecture of The Surf Club Residences. Each home offers capacious living space and thoughtful features, with select homes including individual swimming pools, private elevator entries, interior Zen meditation gardens, ample designated parking and staff quarters. Every residence features a seamless integration of the indoor and outdoor living experience, making it possible to enjoy the abundant natural beauty of South Florida while preserving residents’ privacy. And with views stretching from Biscayne Bay to the Atlantic Ocean, each home is set against the ever-changing and luminous backdrop of a vast sky and expanses of water.
The Surf Club is pleased to incorporate other features that make the experience luxe and convivial. A sumptuous spa is integrated into the property, offering a broad spectrum of wellness, beauty and fitness experiences. Two noted restaurants – one casual, one for fine dining – are on site. A lush garden with lush landscaping and numerous design flourishes, games and follies spans the area between the property and the ocean, and an on-site international concierge for residents will be available around-the-clock to insure that any need is met swiftly and easily. Without any doubt, The Surf Club Hotel and Residences will be the most coveted address on Miami Beach.
Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier has designed the 150 residences at The Surf Club in almost 50 unique configurations, with each home seamlessly integrating the interior architecture with bay-to-ocean views, abundant natural light, outdoor living areas and unique elements that make life more relaxed and joyful. Ranging in size from 1,200 square feet to 8000 square feet, with floor-to-ceiling glass “walls” and up to 20-foot ceiling heights, The Surf Club residences also feature expansive 12-foot-deep terraces that create outdoor living rooms separated from the interior spaces by broad sliding glass doors.
Since opening on New Year’s Eve of 1930, the private, members-only Surf Club has set the standard for a gathering point for exceptional people, from the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor to members of great industrial American family dynasties. For more than eight decades, The Surf Club has combined creative events and extravagant amusements with thecasual ease of a well-run beach club, complete with bathing cabanas. The original low-slung, Russell Pancoast-designed building will undergo a meticulous restoration and refurbishment to preserve its historical charm while augmenting it with additional features to allow curated cultural installations and exhibitions, private entertaining and members-only events beachside, pool-side, and in the storied and legendary Peacock Alley and ballrooms.
