Movin’ on up? This $36 Million Miami Penthouse Will Take You to New HeightsShare
But maybe they should consider re-naming it “Casa Di Vertigo.”
Occupying the 48th and 49th floors, this spectacular 10,000 square-feet refuge sits at a heart-stopping 649 feet above the lapping waves of the Atlantic below.
When it’s completed in early 2021, the views will be breathtaking. On a clear day, you’ll see the Bahamas to the east, the entire swampy breadth of Florida to the west. The pinky neon lights of Miami’s South Beach? Right there to the south. Sunrises and sunsets? Truly selfie-worthy.
But anyone who is even remotely fearful of heights will likely go weak at the knees at the thought of taking a dip in one of Casa Di Mare’s two ocean-facing pools. Both are glass-sided and built into the very edge of the building, jutting out into oblivion.
Glass is a major design element of this astonishing property. Pretty much every exterior wall is floor-to-ceiling glass with the slimmest of pillars to detract from the jaw-dropping views. The balcony railing that edges the 4,500 square feet of terrace? Frameless glass, naturally.
Casa Di Mare is just one element of the ambitious $1.8 billion The Estates at Acqualina development situated in booming Sunny Isles, roughly halfway between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. It will eventually comprise two residential towers—Via Acqualina 777 and Via Acqualina 888—and offer a total of 245 oceanfront homes, with prices starting at $4.2 million.
