This incredibly strong market response to the project underscores the value and reputation for luxury that is synonymous with the Turnberry brand. Construction, which started in November, is progressing ahead of schedule. The project will go vertical by the end of 2017 and is slated for delivery by the end of 2019.
Turnberry Ocean Club Residences is the most luxurious undertaking in Turnberry Associates’ 50-year corporate history, and it is already redefining luxury, resort-style living in South Florida with unprecedented elegance, impeccable floorplans, concierge services, and amenities like no other address. Designed by architects Carlos Zapata Studios of New York City and architect Robert Swedroe of Miami, Turnberry Ocean Club Residences is a 54-story oceanfront high-rise glass tower. It features 154 luxury residences ranging from 2,750 to 10,000 square feet with three, four, five, and six-bedroom floorplans that extend over two and three levels. Pricing starts at $3.9 million and goes into the $35 million range. The property features a three-story, $100-million Sky Club located 300 feet above sea level. In the Sky Club, sunrise and sunset pools cantilever off the façade of the building reaching out to the ocean and the bay beyond. There are three common area swimming pools for all tower residents to use and in addition there are seven duplex and triplex collection residences with their own private swimming pools. The entire development offers more over 70,000 square feet of state-of-the-art amenities including indoor and outdoor fitness centers, two restaurants, three bars, a sunset lounge, a hydrotherapy spa, ocean view cabanas, a pet retreat, a nail and blow-dry salon and a sky theater.
The luxury lifestyle that a home at the Turnberry Ocean Club Residences affords extends well beyond the confines of this beautiful property.
