Now that Faena House, the first tower of the very urbane, luxurious, artsy, utopian-for-rich-people-but-other-people-can-visit Faena District Miami Beach, is finished and owners have begun to take possession of their units, the first one to hit the resale market has done just that. Unit 5B, which is being listed by broker Pablo Alfaro with Douglas Elliman for $14.5 million, still has its just-finished-and-designed-by-the-same-starchitect-as-the-Apple-mothership (Foster + Partners) sheen on it, with white Venetian terrazzo floors, Thassos marble countertops, giant wrap-around 'alero' balcony inspired by Alan Faena's country seat, 4 bedroom, 5.5 baths, and a staff room. Of course anybody who buys it will be surrounded by construction for a hot minute (the rest of the Faena District being unfinished) but once that's done it should be fab-u-lous.
The brokerbabble, which is refreshingly un-flowery, just gets to the point:
Spacious B-Line floor plan made up of 4 BR/5 BTH/1 powder room/Staff Quarters in 5,466 sq ft. Fully finished interiors designed by Foster+Partner and collaborations with Molteni Dada on custom kitchen & Permasteelisa on custom bathrooms. Interior space covers 4,165 sq ft while the wrap around balcony adds 1,301 of outdoor covered space.
