MOST LUXURIOUS PROJECT IN AVENTURA COMMENCES CLOSINGS
Iconic twin tower condominium project sits on the last developable island in all South Florida.
AVENTURA, Fla. – Privé at Island Estates, the luxury twin tower residential development anchored in the waters of the Aventura Intracoastal on the last buildable island in South Florida, has officially received its TCO (temporary certificate of occupancy) on both towers. Closings have commenced in the South Tower, while in the North Tower, new residents have already moved in and are enjoying South Florida’s most lavish Island lifestyle. Privé offers 160 residences in two towers, with unobstructed water views from every window-a distinction you won’t find anywhere else in South Florida.
Privé’s palatial, flow-through residences range from 2,585 to 9,500 square feet and offer from two to six bedrooms. Priced from $2.3 million, Privé is over 75 percent sold. Resulting from a collaboration between Gary Cohen and BH3 founders Greg Freedman, Daniel Lebensohn and Charles Phelan, Privé was designed by celebrated architects Sieger Suarez with social and shared interiors by Interiors by Steven G.
“We’re honored to deliver the most iconic project Aventura has ever seen, as it resides on an eight-acre island that is the last developable island in all of South Florida, meaning nobody else (including us) can ever do something this special again,” said Greg Freedman, Principal of BH3 Management.
Residents can now experience the unique lifestyle of living on one of the few private islands in South Florida, while having everything they need at their fingertips – from world-class shopping venues, including the U.S.’s third largest shopping mall, Aventura Mall, world-class dining to a private marina and 360-degree water views.
“This property is so unique and holds views unachievable anywhere else in the area,” states Gary Cohen, co-developer of the residential development. “It is the embodiment of resort lifestyle and a success story for the books, considering the logistics, scale and scope of an extraordinary project of this kind.”
Privé offers five-star, resort-style amenities with 70,000 square-feet of air-conditioned public spaces and expansive outdoor leisure spaces, including a 360-degree running path outlining the island, tennis court, outdoor dining terraces, a residents-only poolside bistro, a private fishing pier, two expansive swimming pools and a private marina for yachts up to 135 feet in length.
Each tower boasts its own 10,000 square-foot, two-story fitness center and state-of-the art spa with his and her steam and sauna. Lavish social rooms include a private library and dining room, plush wine room and cigar lounge, expansive outdoor patio areas and more. Other distinctive amenities include a pet-grooming salon, in-house car wash service, and a collection of lobby-level suites, suitable for use as guest accommodations, offices, art studios, staff quarters, etc., and available for purchase by any Privé owner.
