Miami and New York-based Aria Development Group celebrated the groundbreaking of their luxury condominium, 321 Ocean, with an onsite ceremony and subsequent reception at Estiatorio Milos on October 1 in Miami Beach. City officials, buyers, friends and family members of Aria Development Group principals David Arditi, Josh Benaim and Tim Gordon – along with project partners Cervera Real Estate, Coastal Construction Company, Ten Arquitectos, Revuelta Architecture International, Busta Studio Inc. and Enea Garden Design – gathered around a colossal sandcastle model of 321 Ocean to toast the start of construction on the last oceanfront development in the prestigious South of Fifth neighborhood.
“We’re looking forward to delivering this limited edition, beautiful, boutique project to Miami Beach,” said David Arditi, principal at Aria Development Group. “What’s more, we’re confident we have assembled the highest caliber team possible to bring our vision to reality.”
The ultra-exclusive, low density development designed by Mexican architect Enrique Norten is comprised of 21 grand three- and four-bedroom homes and emphasizes spacious layouts, desirable green spaces and spectacular ocean views. Already at 80 percent sold, the remaining units at 321 Ocean include two, two-story Beach Villas ranging from 3,800 to 4,500 square feet plus terrace, private pool deck and gardens, along with two spectacular penthouses.
The 3,000-square-foot Ocean Drive Penthouse features three bedrooms plus den, three-and-a-half baths and an oversized terrace with two balconies. 321 Ocean’s most exclusive residence is the $25 million Ocean Tower Penthouse which includes five bedrooms plus den and library, six bathrooms, 7,000 square feet of interior space (13,000 square feet including outdoor), 11-foot floor to ceiling windows, private, rooftop infinity pool and 360 degree panoramic views of the ocean and city.
Artfully conceptualized by Norten with modern lines and gracious layouts, 321 Ocean offers buyers a lifestyle that combines a serene beachfront ambience with the excitement of South Beach. Anna Busta of Busta Studio, Inc. brings her elegant style to the lobby and recreational areas, while Enzo Enea’s The Garden at 321 provides residents with an exquisitely landscaped urban oasis. Amenities at the sophisticated development include 24-hour valet, beach services and attendants, a beachfront, infinity-edge, heated pool, concierge, security, private elevator lobbies for each resident, elite fitness center, and 10’ deep oceanfront terraces, among other luxuries.
