Miami’s most over-the-top luxury residences are officially hotter than ever before, thanks to the recent announcement that the one and only Karl Lagerfeld will design the new lobbies for The Estates at Acqualina,the newest residential tower of Acqualina Resort & Spa.

The first condominium project in the United States to involve the iconic designer isn’t slated to open for nearly four more years, but residences, which range from $3.9 million to nearly $40 million, are already selling like hotcakes.

We visited the sales center a few weeks back and were more than impressed by what we saw. These palatial oceanfront units will feature the finest in amenities, including an indoor ice skating rink, Wall Street trader’s room, Rolls Royce house car and optional private cabanas valued at more than $2 million each.

“Simply put, The Estates at Acqualina will be the world’s finest residences,” said Jules Trump, developer of The Estates at Acqualina.  “Eddie and I wanted our entrance lobbies to be the piece de resistance of our new project, and who better to create these than the master of modern creativity: Karl Lagerfeld.  Karl is the world’s most acclaimed designer, and we believe his high-end designs will be greatly valued by our residents, who desire an incomparable level of opulence, luxury, design and style.”

“I am excited by the opportunity to design the lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina and take great pride in knowing that the spaces I create will be such important spaces in the building,” said Karl Lagerfeld. “Not only are they significant because they offer the first impression of the building, they are also the spaces where people come to socialize daily; they are like a common living room.  My designs are inspired by the look of each lobby, the building and the destination of Florida especially. The climate is very warm there and I wanted something fresh.”

We can’t wait to bring you more exclusive coverage in the weeks to come.
