LOUVER HOUSE is slated to be a 1-tower condo project with a combined 5 floors and 12 units located on a site on Meridian Avenue in Miami Beach in Miami-Dade County.
Louver House is an extraordinary new high-end residential complex that sits in the middle of Miami Beach’s famed South-of-Fifth (SoFi) neighborhood. This 12 unit low-rise building offers true upscale, spectacular floor plans that range from 2,008 square feet to 2,432 square feet. While not waterfront, this complex sits on the corner of Meridan Avenue and 3rd Street, certainly one of Miami Beach’s most beautiful and accessible areas. Just a few blocks from the beach, and a stone’s throw away from all that the South of Fifth area has to offer. That includes some of our best restaurants.
Unlike some of the other condos build in the center of SoFi, Louver House is being designed and marketed with designs and features that rival some of our most-expensive and highly desirable properties. It’s a five-star approach to design, including 10 foot ceilings, generous floorplans and superb finishes. Think luxury, and that’s what you get at Louver House.

BAL HARBOUR SCENE
Juan Pablo Verdiquio turned his Sunny Isles Beach vacation
condo into a full-time home last year after selling his footwear factory in
Buenos Aires. Here, he enjoys zipping around in a Porsche convertible while
running a construction management firm.
He loves South Florida’s safe, luxurious lifestyle — and
doesn’t look back.
“It’s the possibility of living on the beach,” said
Verdiquio, 38, who lives at Trump Tower with his wife and two children. “I have
this beautiful apartment and also a cabana where I can sip coffee and read a
book on the beach. And when the kids get out of school, we go boating.”
A cosmopolitan playground for the world’s wealthy, South
Florida is increasingly synonymous with luxury in all its many manifestations:
multimillion-dollar real estate, exotic cars, yachts, highend watches, designer
apparel. While Miami has long been a flashy, consumerist city, it is now
attracting serious wealth from all over the globe — those who won’t flinch at
spending millions of dollars for a condo or paying hundreds of thousands of
dollars for splashy wheels.
“Miami has really become the American Riviera,” said Ken
Gorin, president and chief executive of The Collection in Coral Gables, which
sells more Maseratis, McLarens and Porsches, combined, than any other
dealership in the United States. “It’s where people want to be.”
Among those now being drawn to Miami are worldwide real
estate investors, global financiers, industrial magnates and royal families.
“Miami has become a magnet for capital and people from all
over the world,” said Richard LeFrak, the billionaire chairman of New
York-based LeFrak, who owns a Miami Beach condo and has transformed the former
Gansevoort in Miami Beach with partners Starwood Capital into 1 Hotel &
Homes South Beach. Condos there cost up to $20 million.
“Art Basel had a tremendous influence on bringing very high
net-worth people to Miami Beach, people who probably remember Miami Beach as
where their grandmothers went,” LeFrak said. “They realized the city had become
somewhat different. And as a result, they had fun for three days, liked the
beach, liked the restaurants, saw that there is an art scene. And it’s America
— if you need a cardiologist, you can get it. The best description is it’s an
exotic city in a first world country.”
Along the coast in South Florida, one needs only to look
upward to see the trappings of the rich: Scores of new condos are coming on
line, priced at $1 million-plus — and in excess of $50 million for a
pre-construction penthouse at the Faena House in mid-Miami Beach.
“In every conversation about worldwide cities, Miami is in
the top five cities,” said Horacio Ledon, president of Douglas Elliman
Development Marketing for Florida and California, whose firm markets the Faena
project. “It is really checking off all the boxes that make it a world class
city — from the arts, to sports, to culture, to lifestyle.”
In Miami, the world’s rich also spend their loot freely on
luxury accoutrements. Beyond pricey real estate, think exotic cars, Champagne,
sumptuous yachts and international designer goods.
Krug, whose Champagnes begin at $180 a bottle, lists Miami
as its ninth top market globally, and its second most important city in the
United States, after New York.
Krug’s Miami area sales have grown 10 percent to 20 percent
each of the past four years, with the top 30 accounts representing almost 80
percent of that growth, said Maggie Henriquez, president and chief executive of
the House of Krug. Among the top accounts: Azul, Cavalli Miami, Dolce Italian,
Portofino Wine Bank and Zuma, she said.
“Miami is a city that is reinventing itself. It is amazing.
Every time I come, I see Miami getting transformed,” said Henriquez, who lives
in France. “We want to be part of this transformation. We want to be part of
the people who are willing to enjoy and discover an amazing experience with a
Burgess Yachts is also putting its focus on growth in the
United States through its operations in Miami, where it markets $10 million to
$20 million yachts and sells weeklong charters to the Caribbean and
Mediterranean, said Matt Emerson, Burgess’ director of the Americas.
The company, which had two employees here 10 years ago, now
has 16 employees with plans for continued growth in 2015, he said.
“We feel that Miami is an international destination where a
lot of our potential clients and existing clients have second homes, and there
are first class hotels and first class restaurants, and we want to be there,”
said Emerson, who is based in New York.
To add to their South Florida experience, the rich can shop
at a dizzying array of designer boutiques at various luxury shopping
Bal Harbour Shops has recently unveiled several newly
designed or expanded stores, including those for Chloé, Bulgari, Intermix and
J.W. Cooper, and added The Webster and Buccellati. In 2015, Dsquared2 and Tomas
Maier are among the boutiques expected to open.
Aventura Mall also has been adding to its luxury roster,
with such stores as Tiffany & Co., Fendi, Emilio Pucci, Burberry and
And Miami’s Design District is quickly transforming into a
luxury shopping destination, with such stores as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Berluti,
Hermès, Lanvin, Celine and Bulgari already open. Many more boutiques will be
opening in the district in 2015, including Cartier, Ermenegildo Zegna,
Valentino, Versace and Givenchy.
By the end of 2016, two major shopping centers — Brickell
City Centre and Miami Worldcenter — will bring more offerings.
Indeed, with so much of the world’s wealthiest visitors
here, many of the globe’s most luxurious brands now count Miami as one of their
top cities for sales.
Brian H. Lange, president of the Americas for Vilebrequin,
the swimwear and resort brand founded in St. Tropez, said its Bal Harbour Shops
boutique ranks No. 1 in sales among 147 stores worldwide, and is the largest in
terms of square footage.
“We have such an internationally diverse clientele here,”
he said. “Everybody comes here.” They come from all over the world, he added,
citing France, Italy, Germany, Eastern Europe, Russia, the Middle East, Mexico,
Brazil, Colombia and Canada, among the home turfs.
Audemars Piguet ranks its Bal Harbour Shops watch store as
its second largest in the United States, after New York. And the United States
is the brand’s second largest market after Hong Kong, said Xavier Nolot, chief
executive of North America for Audemars Piguet.
“Miami is the hub of Latin America, so Miami caters to our
American clients and our South American clients,” Nolot said. “In the U.S. we
have only New York and Bal Harbour, so that tells you how important Miami is,
and it is a booming market.”
Similarly Breguet, the Swiss luxury watch brand whose
watches range up to $1 million, has a boutique at Bal Harbour, among only four
in the United States, including New York, Beverly Hills and Las Vegas.
And Ferragamo, which has a flagship store at Bal Harbour
Shops, said it counts Miami among its top U.S. boutiques, along with Honolulu,
New York and Beverly Hills.
In real estate, Miami truly stands out, largely due to its
growing popularity among international buyers.
“Miami is the most international city in the United States,
particularly from a real estate point of view,” said Philip White, president
and chief executive officer of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.
In fact, Miami ranked ninth among the top 10 international
luxury markets in a 2014 Christie’s International Real Estate report: Luxury
Defined: An Insight Into the Luxury Residential Property Market. The other U.S.
cities included were New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
According to the report, Cote d’Azur, London and Miami are
the world’s most popular secondhome markets. In Miami, second-home buyers
accounted for 45 percent of luxury sales, defined as $1 million, plus in 2013;
Christie’s local affiliate, EWM Realty International, sold a $1 millionplus
home on average every 17 hours. Half of luxury sales in Miami were to foreign
buyers, with the other half going to domestic buyers, the report showed.
For high-end real estate, that translates to deep-pocketed
investors from the Northeastern United States and Europe who “don’t bat an
eyelash at paying $3,000 a square foot,” in Miami for a condo at the Bath Club,
for example, where prices start at $9 million, said Ledon, of Douglas Elliman
Indeed, Miami and New York were the only North American
cities to make the top 10 list in the
2014 Wealth Report, issued annually by London-based real
estate consultancy Knight Frank. The March 2014 report’s Global Cities Survey
ranks cities based on four factors: economic activity, quality of life,
knowledge and influence and political power. It also takes into account the
number of ultra-high net worth individuals who call each city home.
Miami, which ranked No. 7 on the top 10 list, outranks
every other city in the Western Hemisphere with the exception of second-ranked
New York. Miami outperformed Paris, Beijing and Dubai. And the Global Cities
Survey predicts that Miami will remain in the top 10 for at least the next
Still, while South Florida’s economy and real estate market
are being fueled by wealthy foreign buyers, the region remains divided by the
haves and have-nots.
A study released in August by the U.S. Conference of Mayors
underscored South Florida’s wage gap. The 2012 figures contained in the report
show the high percentages of income earners at opposite ends of the spectrum:
27.1 percent of the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach population had an
income of less than $25,000; 25.6 percent had an income between $25,999 and
$49,999; 17 percent had $50,000 to $74,999; 10.3 percent had $75,000 to
$99,999; and 19.9 percent had $100,000 or more.
If the study were to add international visitors with
second, third or fourth homes here, the income levels would surely soar,
For Sotheby’s, which focuses on the high-end real estate
market, Miami ranks among its top 10 cities globally, White said. Among the
reasons foreign buyers are attracted to Miami: it’s still a bargain compared to
other luxury cities like London or Hong Kong, he said.
Jillian Rollinger, vice president of international
development and sales for Sotheby’s in Dubai, said the top 25 percent of her
clients from the Gulf region are investing in South Florida. As an example, a
royal family (which she would not name and would say only that they are from
from the Middle East) has bought a $5 million-plus pre-construction villa at
the Ritz-Carlton Residences in mid-Miami Beach.
“Miami has now become a very solid market,” Rollinger said,
adding that families from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar have
been drawn to the luxury lifestyle here as well as to the educational

Verdiquio, the Argentine transplant, first purchased his
Trump Tower condo in 2008 to spend summer vacations. Since then, he has not
only moved here, but has bought two more preconstruction condos at Porsche
Design Tower and Residences by Armani/Casa — all Dezer Development projects.
The first thing he did here, he said, was buy a Porsche 4S
For sure, driving around South Florida, luxury and exotic
cars like Verdiquio’s often dominate the roadways. Many are driven by
out-of-towners who want a snazzy car while they visit their vacation homes.
“Miami is always going to be a trendsetter for fashion and
luxury,” said Peter Grady, president and chief executive of Maserati North
America, based in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. “We see that in South Florida
more than anywhere else. Some of that is driven by the international nature of
the clientele: You may have someone with a home in Rio and New York and Miami
looking for a vehicle in all those cities.”
