Developer Gil Dezer, known for his luxury condo towers and exotic car collection, is partnering with Bentley for his next project.

Dezer Development will build a Bentley Motors-branded skyscraper on an oceanfront site in Sunny Isles Beach. Sales are expected to launch later this year, as early as October, Dezer told The Real Deal. It will mark the first Bentley residential tower in the world.

Bentley Residences is expected to have more than 200 luxury condos. The 749-foot cylindrical tower, with more than 60 stories, is planned for the 3.6-acre property at 18401 Collins Avenue. It will be designed by Sieger Suarez Architects, and will feature a gym, pool, spa, theater, bar, restaurant and lounge, cabanas and landscaped gardens, according to a press release. Each condo will include in-unit, multi-car garages that will access the car elevator.

The tower will replace the Days Hotel by Wyndham Thunderbird Beach Resort.

Dezer Development completed Porsche Design Tower, at 18555 Collins Avenue, in late 2016. The building features the patented Dezervator, a car elevator that runs through the center of the tower. More recently, Dezer partnered with the Related Group to build Residences by Armani/Casa, at 18975 Collins Avenue.

Dezer said that unlike his deal with Porsche Design, his company has an agreement directly with Bentley, the automobile manufacturer, which will give the developer access to Bentley’s dealers and special events.

“We’re very excited about the opportunity to get in with the customer base who understands what the Bentley brand is about,” he said.

Construction is expected to begin in early 2023 and be completed in 2026. Dezer secured height approval in 2019 for what will be the tallest tower in Sunny Isles Beach.

Property records show Dezer Hotel Management Ltd. paid $6.8 million for the Days Hotel by Wyndham Thunderbird Beach Resort in 1996. The five-story, 180-room building was built in 1955.
