FORBES. Bentley Residences, The First Bentley-Branded Luxury Residential Tower, Will Arrive In Miami In 2026April 8, 2021
Bentley Motors recently revealed their plans for the first-ever Bentley-branded residential tower, Bentley Residences, set to debut in 2026 in Sunny Isles Beach in Miami, Florida. Bentley Motors enlisted Dezer Development, responsible for some of the world’s most luxurious branded residences, including the recently completed Porsche Design Tower (just two blocks away) and Armani/Casa, to name a few.
“The collaboration started because of our success with the Porsche Design Tower,” says Gil Dezer, president of Dezer Development. “For us, it’s very exciting to work with Bentley Motors because they have great ideas and come up with an aesthetic that is really beautiful. They’re making sure they are infusing their heritage and DNA into the product.”
Construction will begin in 2023 and will be built by architecture firm Sieger Suarez Architects, who is also responsible for Porsche Design Tower and Armani/Casa. The 60-story, cylindrical tower is set to be the tallest ever built on a U.S. beachfront at 749 feet. There will be more than 200 luxury residences; state-of-the-art amenities, including a restaurant, cinema, whiskey bar, gym, pool, spa and cigar lounge; cabanas; and landscaped gardens.
“The beauty of this project is that we get to curate that from the ground up,” says Chris Cooke, lead designer of Bentley Motors. “Everything from the look of the tower, the layout of the rooms, the spacing, the material, we can make it from scratch, which will enable us to make it the best it can be and the best experience for our customers. We know we are in safe hands working with Dezer, as they’ve done this before.”
Each residence has a multi-car garage (via the tower’s car elevator) so residents can securely store their vehicles, and residences all have a private balcony, sunken pool and sauna. Dezer says each unit was designed for seamless indoor-outdoor living and each unit will have views over the ocean and bay through its floor-to-ceiling windows.
