A new glass condo building will be coming to 6901 Collins Ave. thanks to a joint effort by three development groups. Given the moniker L'Atelier Residences, the all-glass building will rise 18 stories above Miami Beach. SMG Management, Shamrock Holdings and W Capital Group broke ground in Q4 2015 as construction commenced with an expected opening of 2017. L'Atelier sits on 130 feet of beach front property that bridges privacy with accessibility to Miami Beach's cultural center. L'Atelier will replace the Golden Sands Hotel, but careful design by Holly Hunt will still preserve the hotels historical 3-story facade and incorporate it as part of the new building's design.
Each unit includes massive balconies, outdoor jacuzzi and Poliform kitchens with Gaggenau appliances. Units come in 3 bed half-floor residences, 4 bed full-floor residences and 6 bedroom penthouse layouts at 2,300 SF, 4,600 SF and 8,000 SF respectively. The building will feature amenities by HOLLY HUNT and Enzo Enea including a private, staffed beach. Other five-star amenities include a full time House Manager, 24 hour valet, oceanfront infinity edge swimming pool, upper deck lap pool, pool bar and BBQ area, spa, hammock garden, state-of-the-art gym and a beauty salon. The penthouse has hit the market at $25 million and L'Atelier's construction continues to move smoothly along. This exciting building is sure to shake up the aging area between lower Miami Beach and Bal Harbor.
