Mak­ing Head­lines

Part of the iconic in­te­grated South Beach de­vel­op­ment, the ultra-lux­u­ri­ous South Beach Res­i­dences sits on prime land in the heart of the city


Dis­cern­ing prop­erty own­ers know that the de­sign of a lux­ury home is just as im­por­tant as the land it stands on. A prime ad­dress and the prop­erty’s re­turn on in­vest­ment are thus cru­cial fac­tors for home buy­ers. How­ever, such de­vel­op­ments are hard to come by and when they do, they are quickly snapped up from the mar­ket. A lux­ury res­i­den­tial project that has been get­ting a lot of at­ten­tion is South Beach Res­i­dences, which sit atop the five-star JW Mar­riott Sin­ga­pore South Beach. Jointly de­vel­oped by Sin­ga­pore’s City De­vel­op­ments Lim­ited and Malaysia’s IOI Prop­er­ties Group, two of the re­gion’s largest real es­tate con­glom­er­ates, the lux­u­ri­ous res­i­dences are part of an in­te­grated de­vel­op­ment, which also in­cludes 34 storeys of Grade A of­fice space at South Beach Tower as well as South Beach Av­enue, a 32,000sqft en­clave of ca­sual and fine din­ing restau­rants, and en­ter­tain­ment spots, to cater to a di­verse group. The striking ex­te­rior of South Beach Res­i­dences was dreamed up by Foster + Part­ners, the award-win­ning ar­chi­tec­tural firm be­hind sev­eral other state­ment-mak­ing pro­jects such as the tree-filled Ap­ple flag­ship store in Or­chard Road; the state-ofthe-art Hankook Techn­odome in Dae­jeon, South Korea; and Bloomberg’s stun­ning new Euro­pean head­quar­ters in Lon­don. Sim­i­larly, South Beach Res­i­dences boasts an en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious de­sign backed by a mul­ti­tude of green tech­nolo­gies, mak­ing it an ar­chi­tec­tural icon in the city. The de­vel­op­ment com­prises only 190 apart­ments, be­fit­ting its tagline of “Icon to many. Home to few”. From the two-, three- and four-bed­room suites, to the six pent­houses, each unit fea­tures so­phis­ti­cated home fur­nish­ings and pre­mium ap­pli­ances by Miele and SubZero. Most note­wor­thy of all are the floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows that open up to breath­tak­ing views of the city and the Civic District. Two sky gar­dens and an in­fin­ity pool also serve as van­tage points to view the ur­ban cityscape—per­fect for those seek­ing a sanc­tu­ary in the city. The crea­ture comforts of the South Beach Res­i­dences is topped off by the prop­erty’s concierge ser­vice. Through its Sig­na­ture Res­i­den­tial Ser­vices, home­own­ers will be con­nected to a team of well-trained res­i­den­tial hosts, who can as­sist with any­thing from mak­ing a restau­rant reser­va­tion and or­gan­is­ing a party, to book­ing a pri­vate jet for a quick week­end get­away.
