Multiplan Real Estate Asset Management has broken ground on 57 Ocean, an ultra-high-end, 18-story boutique condominium on Millionaire’s Row in Miami Beach. Designed by Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica with interiors by Brazilian designer Patricia Anastassiadis of Anastassiadis Arquitetos, 57 Ocean is already being singled-out by high-end buyers worldwide for its myriad of holistic wellness amenities and services. Dozens of industry leaders and top-producing broker-associates were in attendance for the April 4 groundbreaking ceremony, which included a champagne toast and an elegant brunch in the project’s $3 million, on-site sales gallery. The 81-unit 57 Ocean is located at 5775 Collins Avenue and has been likened to a coastal retreat, blending extravagant design with an emphasis on healthy living. Moss & Associates is the general contractor for the project.
“This is a proud moment,” said Marcelo Kingston, Managing Partner, Multiplan Real Estate Asset Management. “Even before putting shovels in the ground, the response from the market has been tremendous. We see the global interest in our project as being indicative of the demand buyers have…not only for sophisticated oceanfront living, but access to state-of-the-art features that are designed to bolster health and wellbeing. 57 Ocean is a rarity in the marketplace, and savvy, well-heeled consumers recognize that.”
The condominium is the brainchild of Multiplan Real Estate Asset Management’s leader, José Isaac Peres, an internationally recognized Brazilian developer and owner of major residential and commercial real estate holdings. Peres, who was in attendance for the commemoration, has longstanding ties to Miami, being the visionary behind a pair of landmark South Florida projects including the concept of Jade on Brickell Bay and the development of Il Villaggio on Ocean Drive. During the ceremony, which was temporarily moved inside on account of rain, Peres spoke passionately about his company and its longstanding mantra.
“Multiplan is known for going well beyond expectation,” said Peres. “We believe in giving people more than what they ask for…and when we say we are going to do something, we do it. Those are two of our pillars. Even for today’s groundbreaking event, people wanted to know if we were going to postpone the celebration because of the weather…but despite the clouds, we moved forward. Again, if we say we are going to do something, we make it happen…and our beautiful ceremony took place as planned.”
“I’m very proud to be involved with Multiplan’s latest project,” said Edgardo Defortuna, CEO of Fortune International Group, parent company of Fortune Development Sales, the project’s exclusive broker. “They always deliver on what they promise — and even more. During the opening party, Dr. Peres said he was going to start construction in April, and that’s exactly what he’s done. As indicated by early sales, the market has really embraced 57 Ocean. It’s a testament to the notion that when you have a quality developer producing a great product, the result will be a huge success.”
