All eyes are on Sunny Isles, with its gor­geous beaches, elab­o­rate high-rises, and il­lus­tri­ous de­sign­ers.

THE ES­TATES AT ACQUALINA Acqualina, the beach­front AAA Five Di­amond re­sort and spa, re­cently un­veiled plans for the Es­tates at Acqualina. This $1.5 bil­lion de­vel­op­ment will fea­ture 244 units, an amenity com­plex called Cir­cus Max­imus (with a bowl­ing al­ley, ice-skat­ing rink, and movie the­ater), a speakeasy and world-class restau­rant, a surf­ing sim­u­la­tor, a soccer field, and more. But the pièce de ré­sis­tance will be the lob­bies, de­signed by Karl Lager­feld of Chanel, in the renowned de­signer’s first con­do­minium project in the US. 17895 Collins Ave., 305-9336666; es­tate­sa­t­ac­qualina.com

ALL EYES ARE ON SUNNY ISLES, WITH ITS GOR­GEOUS BEACHES, ELAB­O­RATE HIGH-RISES, AND IL­LUS­TRI­OUS DE­SIGN­ERS.

JADE SIG­NA­TURE The 57-story Jade Sig­na­ture is well ahead of the Sunny Isles curve. Boast­ing a team that in­cludes Pritzker Prize-win­ning ar­chi­tects Her­zog & de Meu­ron and the Parisian in­te­rior de­sign firm PYR, Jade is de­fined by its seam­less de­sign: The strik­ing porte cochère con­nects the lobby and pool with the gar­dens and beach, while col­umns al­low for flow-through in­te­ri­ors. The prop­erty also offers com­mon ar­eas for all ages, with a teen tech lounge, a tod­dler cen­ter, a beach bar and grill, and a spa fea­tur­ing a coed ham­mam. 16901 Collins Ave., 305-940-0335; jades­ig­na­ture.com

THE RITZ-CARL­TON RES­I­DENCES The forth­com­ing Ritz-carl­ton Res­i­dences are all about space. The top floors of the 52-story con­do­minium build­ing, de­signed by Arqui­tec­ton­ica, will be home to pent­houses with sweep­ing ter­races, sum­mer kitchens, and infinity pools. Last year the prop­erty set a record when a full-floor pent­house sold for $21 mil­lion. Other units will fea­ture flowthrough floor plans, with no two alike on any one floor. 15701 Collins Ave., 305-503-5811; theres­i­dences­sun­ny­isles­beach.com
