Schrager presents 26 residences at the Miami Beach Edition
These “Homes in the Sky” are designed by world-renown architect John Pawson
NEW YORK, NY —Ian Schrager is back in Miami Beach for the first time in 17 years since the launch of his game-changing Delano hotel, which ushered in a new modern era and rebooted Miami Beach as a top resort destination.
This time, Schrager introduces The Residences at The Miami Edition. These 26 limited edition units capture the spirit of the times again, just as the Delano did. Miami Beach is no longer simply a resort destination, but is fast becoming a bonified, world-class, international city with a vibrant art scene, first-rate architecture and cultural institutions attracting global citizens from all around the world.
“There is simply nothing else like them currently in the marketplace. We tried to capture the details of life in the details of the architecture,” says Schrager.
Designed by world-renown architect John Pawson, the residences will sit on the top floors of the existing, landmarked 1950s building that will be the Miami Beach EDITION hotel, as well as in an adjacent, newly constructed 18-story tower. The Residences offer the best of all worlds: the privacy and individuality of a custom, one-of-a-kind home; the benefit of ownership; and exclusive access to all the services, privileges and amenities of a unique world-class urban resort, including a myriad of exciting and dynamic food, beverage and entertainment options. Although part of The Miami Beach EDITION, The Residences will have their own dedicated private entrance as well as an anonymous “celebrity” entrance, for ultimate privacy.
Expansive “Outdoor Rooms” invite effortless continuity between indoor and outdoor living. These outdoor spaces feature private lap pools and plunge pools, gardens, outdoor kitchens, dining areas, fireplaces and pergolas designed by Pawson. There is enough space for a private outdoor gym or to enjoy yoga, along with soaring panoramic views of both the ocean and the bay and city.
Generous living areas are light-filled with floor-to-ceiling windows and bleached teak wood flooring throughout, including the balconies and terraces. Each residence has custom designed, open Bulthaup kitchens with islands as well as master bathrooms with Italian white onyx translucent screens and custom-cast integral concrete bathtubs and sinks.
Schrager introduces “Residential Prêt-à-Porter” which offers residences in complete move-in condition for a seamless transition into a comfortable home. These units include custom interiors designed by John Pawson and the Ian Schrager Design Studio, with everything one would need in a household from linens to dishes, towels to cookware, all pre-selected, unpacked and put away prior to arrival. These unique homes dedicated to the “Good Life” offer all the benefits of ownership, the services and amenities of a world-class urban resort, and a completely managed household without the bother of managing it or the full expense of maintaining it.
