The World’s First Bentley Residences Will Redefine the Miami Skyline

Imagine traveling up to your skyscraper apartment while seated in your Bentley auto. That fantasy will become a reality in 2027 at the completion of construction on the Bentley Residences Miami on Sunny Isles beach. It will be the world’s first Bentley-branded residential tower.  

The super-luxury project by Bentley Motors and Dezer Development, Bentley Residences, will epitomize resort-style luxury living on the beach with five-star hospitality and service. Situated on an exclusive stretch of oceanfront at 18401 Collins Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach, the luxury condominium will rise 62 stories and offer sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. Every individual balcony will have a private heated swimming pool, summer kitchen and generous living area.

But the biggest wow-factor will be the opportunity for residents to drive their car into one of four designated elevators called the “Dezervator lift” to literally drive into their upper-floor condominium. The innovative car lifts and glass-ensconced sky garages will exhibit cars like art in each of the 216 private residences. 

The Dezervator, named after its founder Gil Dezer, creates an unparalleled lifestyle for buyers centered around exclusivity and privacy. The innovation makes three- and four-car sky garages within each residence possible and offers convenient, secure storage for private car collections. Complete with the option for EV charging amenities, these sky garages also provide additional space for storage and small motorized vehicles such as wave runners and motorcycles.

Harnessing the prestige and heritage of the brand, Bentley Residences will evoke a sense of class, elegance, and sophistication, setting a new precedent for resort-style luxury living on the beach with five-star hospitality and service. Designed by Sieger Suarez Architects in partnership with Bentley Motors, Bentley Residences will integrate Bentley’s most distinctive design cues into its architecture and interiors.

The iconic diamond-quilted pattern adorning Bentley door panels, for example, will be recreated on the tower’s façade through diamond-shaped glass panels angled meticulously to refract natural light. As a result, the exterior will glimmer in the sunlight. These same patterns and silhouettes are echoed throughout the building, including the diamond-embossed stone in the primary bathrooms and the diamond-shaped floor tiles spanning the lobby.

Christophe Georges, President and CEO of Bentley Motors, Inc. says, “We are very pleased to celebrate this key milestone in the development of Bentley Residences Miami. A demonstration of our commitment to great design, the development will create a living experience that expresses the very philosophy of the Bentley brand.” 

The private homes at Bentley Residences promise to be as unique and thoughtful as the car lift. They embrace the concept of indoor-outdoor living and offer expansive private outdoor spaces with unobstructed views that stretch the shoreline. Every individual balcony will include a generous living area specially engineered to cut through any gusty winds so that residents can easily light a candle even 30 floors in the air.

This ingenuity is continued inside to the home interiors. State-of-the-art kitchens will feature Gaggenau appliances, Italian-designed cabinetry and motorized doors that hide the space with a wave of the hand. Primary bathrooms will double as home spas with private saunas, behind-mirror TVs and outdoor showers in select residences. As with the façade, the interiors also feature subtle nods to the Bentley brand. The iconic diamond patterning, as well as its chrome finishes and unique textured door handles, knobs and pulls, are incorporated in small but impactful ways that will resonate with Bentley brand enthusiasts.

Spanning 2.4 acres, this month's groundbreaking ceremony for Bentley Residences represents the exciting future of the site’s former Thunderbird Hotel. The property will feature a lushly landscaped beach club and oceanfront pool deck with food and beverage service, cabanas and spectacular ocean views, as well as a 20,000-square-foot collection of amenities including a whiskey bar, cigar lounge, wellness and revitalization spa, cinema and oceanfront beauty salon. Four-time James Beard award-winning celebrity chef Todd English will curate the menu and dining experience for an exclusive private restaurant, which also offers catering, demonstrations, and food and wine pairings to residents. Pricing starts at $5.6 million.
