Faena House, the ultra luxurious xanadu that Argentinian developer Alan Faena is building as the residential portion of his Faena District Miami Beach project, (let’s just call it Faena District for short) has fifty percent of its units under contract,according to a Faena representative.
The 18-story, 47 unit building comes with major starchitecture cred, being designed by Foster + Partners (a.k.a. Pritzker prize winning architect Lord Norman Foster), but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. It will have features and amenities galore, including its signature aleros (don’t take the hallway to get from A to B, take the balcony!), really major pieces of hurricane resistant glass, and humungous sliding hurricane glass doors (12.5 feet in some instances!). There will be a private residential beach club separate from the Faena Hotel next door, pools, men’s and women’s spas, residential lounges of course, and “gardens with both common areas and more intimate spaces” designed by Raymond Jungles.
