If you like the finer things in life, then you could do worse than moving into the Ritz-Carlton Residences in US city of Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. The development's "unprecedented luxury" will stretch to terraces with private pools, smart home technology and dog-walking services.

The 1.25-sq m (13.5-sq ft) city of Sunny Isles Beach is located on a barrier island in Florida's north-east Miami-Dade County. As a result, the eventual residents of the Ritz-Carlton Residencies will be able to feast their eyes of a mix of ocean, city and intracoastal views.

Designed by Arquitectonica, with interiors by Italian designer Michele Bönan, the 52-story beach-front tower is to be situated on a 2.2-ac (0.9-ha) site. It will house a total of 212 residences, with five penthouse units.

Inside, the building's ceiling heights reach 10 ft (3 m), increasing to 15-ft (4.6 m) in the penthouses. Each residence has its own private elevator lobby, along with Gaggenau appliances, Snaidero kitchen cabinetry, stone countertops and wine coolers. They are all offered with pre-wired high speed Internet access, Wi-Fi and smart home technology, while selected residences boast terraces with private pools and service quarters.

In addition to these features, occupants will also be able to take advantage of a host of services. These range from relatively conventional offerings, like 24/7 valet parking, a 24/7 concierge service and a 24/7 attended lobby, to the more exclusive likes of a fuel delivery service.

Residents can make use of housekeeping, grocery shopping, personal chef, personal shopping and dog walking services, as well as enlist help for function and event planning and in-residence dining and catering. Leisure and entertainment services including personal fitness training, yacht chartering, airline and private flight reservations, golf bookings and arrangements for trips to restaurants, spas and theaters are also on offer.

A private club high up the building provides panoramic views, and a terrace overlooking the downtown area and the ocean. It offers eight guest suites, a media or theater room, a lounge and a business center. For eating and drinking, there is a breakfast area, a private dining area with a kitchen and a bar.

Among the other features of the Ritz-Carlton Residences are a private beach with cabanas, chaise lounges and umbrellas, a pool and a beach restaurant offering pool- and beach-service. Residents can make use of the complex's oceanfront fitness center, outdoor massage area, pool, hot tubs, sauna and steam rooms.

The Ritz-Carlton Residences in Sunny Isles Beach is due for completion in 2018 and will be managed the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Co. The video below provides a fly-through of the development.

Hmmmmm a glass hi-rise in a hurricane prone coast

A perfect example of what is wrong with this world. Want to know why we are suffering with day to day survival, wars and terrorists? This tower is an Iconic example as is the entire city of Dubai. And for all you conspiracy theorists who think the people who live in these Ivory Towers want to reduce the world population to 1/2 a billion, who would clean their toilets?

What? No spiral water slide from the top to the bottom?
nicho
heh. As someone from that area I can assure you they'll sell these to people from overseas who've never spent a summer in South Florida. One word. Humidity.

"who would clean their toilets?" Really rich people don't HAVE toilets. The gourmet foods they eat and drink are constructed from special molecules that transform into sweet-smelling oxygen after being digested. That eliminates the need to poop, pee, or even breathe in air that might have been once breathed out by a poor person.

Based on the fly-through, the pools on the upper floors all seem to be about 6" deep.

I didn't realize how many articles were directed the general population of 99% in society, of what the 1% of super wealthy have available for only wealthy to enjoy or purchase. It's a real eye opener.
