Sunny Isles Beach‘s newest luxe resident—Jade Signature—has officially opened its doors, with an extravagant grand opening party to commemorate the monumental event. Over 500 guests enjoyed the evening, which included a performance by Yoli Mayor, a taiko drum show, a 25-person orchestra and an electrifying fireworks display, cascading over the Atlantic Ocean.
Three of the industry’s biggest players collaborated on this exquisite project, along with Fortune International Group, led by Edgardo and Ana Cristina Defortuna: Herzon & de Meuron—the Swiss architects who are globally recognized for the Tate Modern in London, 1111 Lincoln Road and the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM); Raymond Jungles Inc.—a landscape architectural firm based in Miami; and PYR—a Paris-based, interior design firm led by Pierre Yves-Rochon, responsible for world-renowned projects including the Savoy in London, the Four Seasons George V in Paris and the current renovation of the Waldorf Astoria in New York.
Several significant figures were in attendance for the event, including Edgardo and Ana Cristina Defortuna; Pierre-Yves Rochon from Paris; Jason Franzen—a partner of Herzog & de Meuronfrom Basel; Raymond Jungles; Vice Mayor of City of Sunny Isles Beach Dana Goldman; Sunny Isles Beach Commissioners Larisa Svechin and Jeanette Gatto; Chief Financial Officer of OKO Group, Fran Scola; President and CEO of the Fairwinds Group Andy Mitchell; Managing Director of Multiplan Real Estate Asset Management Marcelo Kingston; and business executive Carlos Mattos.
“Ana Cristina and I are thrilled to deliver this monumental building to our buyers, many of whom have eagerly followed the progression of the Jade brand, showing confidence in our vision by purchasing during the pre-construction phase,” began Edgardo Defortuna, President and CEO of Fortune International Group. “When you have this level of support behind you – from the creative team to the brokers and buyers – anything is possible.”
Jade Signature has masterfully married the highest standard of excellence, in terms of innovation and design, with the gorgeous, natural environment that Sunny Isles Beach provides, in an eco-conscious fashion. For instance, each of its units has a “flow-through-style floor plan” to ensure the best ventilation and allowing residents to reach an optimum, cool temperature naturally—without the use of an air conditioning unit— throughout the year. The building’s angular position and structural design also maximizes the amount of natural sunlight that beams through its grounds and allows for gorgeous landscaping and vegetation, while an underground parking garage with three stories—some 40 feet below sea level—is both discreet and functional.
Almost all of Jade Signature’s 192 residences are sold (95%, to be exact), which is not only a testament to its gorgeous architectural design, but also to the Defortunas, who are responsible for building some of Miami’s most iconic residential buildings over the past 30 years. The units that remain include three-to-five-bedroom residences, beginning at around 3,300 square feet and $4.8 million, as well as some of the building’s most luxurious offerings as part of “The Collection,” which includes two-story Sky Villas and penthouses, ranging from $14.2 to $32.9 million.
“Now that Jade Signature is complete, it gives us tremendous pride to be able to present the final product to our new homeowners from around the world,” noted Ana Cristina Defortuna, Executive Vice President of Fortune International Group. “Jade Signature was a dream – and the result is breathtaking.”
The high-end, resort-style building amenities include a beachfront deck, “an organic, zero entry free-form swimming pool, secluded cabanas, a heated spa surrounded by nature…a 25-meter lap pool,” a full-service spa (both for residents and guests) with a sauna, steam room, hammam, relaxation zone and treatment rooms, as well as a fitness center, library, reading lounge, wine bar, clubroom, entertainment and game lounge, business center, playroom, tech lounge, full-service concierge, smart technology and private elevator entrances. Residents also have private beach access, with amenities such as chaise lounge chairs, umbrellas, an oceanfront restaurant and towel service.
