Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach was developed by Miami-based Lionheart Capital, led by Ophir Sternberg and Ricardo Dunin, and New York-based Elliott Management Corp. It is the first full-scale architectural project in the U.S. by Piero Lissoni, an acclaimed Italian architect who is known for his minimalist design.
In August, the developers secured a temporary certificate of occupancy for the Mid-Beach project. The development group had launched sales in 2014 and initially said closings would begin by the end of 2017.
The Ritz-Carlton Residences has 111 condos and will also have 15 standalone villas, with overall prices ranging from $2 million to $40 million.
In addition to condos and villas, Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach features gardens, pools and 36 private boat slips. Shared amenities include an art studio, a rooftop pool deck with private cabanas and a restaurant, a waterfront bar and social room, pet grooming facilities, indoor and outdoor yoga studios, a meditation garden and car wash facilities.
Lionheart Capital paid Mount Sinai Medical Center $20 million for the property in February 2012.
