When Bentley Motors announced it was getting into the property game, the internet was abuzz with interest. Long heralded as the stalwart of luxury on the road, fans were curious to see if Bentley’s ultra-luxurious approach would translate into a full stay experience. With the first images of the long-awaited new Miami residences official unveiled last week, those concerns have certainly been put to rest.
Teaming up with Dezer Development and Seiger Suarez Architects, Bentley Motors first-ever residential tower sits on the coast of Miami, overlooking the stunning natural scenery. The tallest residential building on any American beachfront, the new residences stand an intimidating 60-storeys high, offers uninterrupted views of the iconic ocean.
According to Bentley, more than 200 luxury apartments will be housed within the property’s unique cylindrical design. Naturally, there are some seriously luxurious creature comforts thrown in. From the floor-to-ceiling windows that feature prominently in each room to the patented car elevator that goes directly to the in-unit multi-car garage, Bentley has characteristically spared no expense, and the result is truly astonishing. Each home within the Bentley Maimi residences cops a private balcony, pool, sauna cinema, and outdoor shower, while owners will also have access to a gym, spa, whisky bar and restaurant.
On the outside, the new Bentley Maimi Residences boast a refined design language that speaks to the brand’s legacy of luxury. Looking at the pressed silver façade, it’s hard not to see the diamond connection, a trademark approach Bentley utilises in its car design, but it’s not simply in aesthetics that the brand is mirroring it’s automotive prowess.
In line with its recent Bentley100 project, the new Maimi Residences feature a similar focus on sustainable luxury living. According to the brand, the tower has been designed in accordance with the Florida Green Building Council ensuring that no damage is done to the local environment, including the surrounding wildlife. Considering it sits in one of America’s best loved natural coastlines, it makes perfect sense.
