Buyers at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Sunny Isles Beach can now have one less chore to worry about: gassing up.

Developers Fortune International Group and Chateau Group will offer Neighborhood Fuel, a Miami-based fuel delivery service for their residents, The Real Deal has learned.

Residents will be able to arrange gas delivery via text message and “enjoy the convenience of a full tank without having to visit the pump,” according a spokesperson.

When completed in the fall of 2018, the 212-unit, 52-story tower will include a beach restaurant, pool deck, kids club, spa, gym and wellness center, a library, car wash and electric car charging stations. Arquitectonica is the architect and Michelle Bönan is the interior designer.

“At-home fuel delivery is another example of the high level and anticipatory services we will provide at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Sunny Isles Beach, where every day needs are met with convenience,” Manuel Grosskopf of the Chateau Group said. “This unique offering contributes to our commitment of creating a true luxury experience.”

Additional amenities, for an extra charge, include access to housekeeping, personal chefs, dog walkers, nannies and childcare, reservations and grocery shopping.

“It is always our mission to deliver something that the Miami market has never experienced before,” Fortune President and CEO Edgardo Defortuna said.

The Ritz is not alone in its over-the-top amenities: Paramount Miami Worldcenter, will include a ninth-floor recreation deck complete with soccer fields, a boxing studio and jam room. And at the Harbour in North Miami Beach, developers will offer an aromatherapy trail aimed at “restoring and soothing the mind and body.”

In September, developers Edgardo Defortuna, Grosskopf and their companies won a legal fight with the condominium association at the Tropicana building in Sunny Isles, which had charged the developers with blocking a redevelopment of the nine-story Tropicana to preserve the oceanfront view at the Ritz. – Katherine Kallergis
