The New Surf Club Four Seasons Residences and Hotel
In 1930, the Miami Beach Surf Club opened its doors to an exclusive membership and began a long history of welcoming rich, famous, and powerful people from around the world. In 2014, it prepares to share its exclusive appeal with a collection of 150 Richard Meier-designed luxury residences and a new luxury hotel. No fewer than 13 will be penthouses—5 of them two-story structures—with custom features and extended private outdoor space. The original Surf Club building will be renovated and restored, with new features including cultural exhibit spaces and accommodation for enhanced members-only activities.
Counter to the Miami Beach race to build the tallest tower, the mixed-use Surf Club project preserves an elegant, graceful atmosphere in a tasteful 12-story profile. It covers an expansive eight acres along the exclusive shoreline, immediately south of Bal Harbour. Homes range from 1,200 to 8,000 square feet. Conveying a contemporary Miami feel, the floor-to ceiling walls of glass will make the most of stunning ocean views, and together with extended outdoor living rooms, reinforce the natural flow of outdoor to indoor living.
Details are designed to appeal to a sophisticated sense of style, like a gourmet kitchen with chef-worthy appliances, twin master baths and dressing rooms, and the added convenience of high-speed connectivity built in. Staff quarters in many units suggest a comfortable lifestyle, and the dedicated elevators ensure privacy with individual vestibules.
The new Surf Club Four Seasons Hotel will apply the same Richard Meier aesthetic to 80 super-luxury rooms and suites, featuring its own pool, private beach, and tropical landscaping. World-class chefs will helm an elegant restaurant on-site, while a wellness center and cabana service aim to create an atmosphere of total relaxation.
Private membership in the legendary Surf Club is part of the deal for buyers of the new luxury homes, no doubt inspiring residents to carve out their own place in Miami Beach history. After all, it’s a chance to follow in the footsteps of past Surf Club luminaries, like Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor, and Frank Sinatra.
