While New York is soaring away in every direction (estate agent Knight Frank predicts a rise in prime-location prices of 5 to 10 per cent this year), down south the demand for luxury living seems equally strong. Fortunately, buyers looking for something suitably chic will find it in Miami’s Fendi Château Residences (through Venegas International Group,www.venegasinternationalgroup.com; from $6m to $25m).
The Italian fashion house is putting in its first branded-real-estate appearance at the beach with a selection of 58 spacious waterfront apartments ranging from 3,300 to 7,000sq ft. They will offer the sleek and sophisticated interiors you’d expect from the Fendi name, and benefit from sea views, numerous pools, a private restaurant and a 24-hour concierge service that understands the most complex requests in a multitude of languages.
