Apogee Condos: An Elegant Waterfront Lifestyle
Developed by The Related Group and designed by architects Sieger-Suarez, Apogee South Beach condominiums were completed in 2008. One of the most notable features of the residential space is that it consists of 22 floors and a mere 67 residences. Such a small community provides residents with the utmost privacy and security.
With the exception of the penthouse suite, each luxury residence is comprised of three or four bedrooms and averages between 3,103 and 4,154 interior square feet. In addition to the open-concept floor plans, each condo offers 349 to 541 square feet of balcony space.
Situated at the southern-most tip of Miami Beach, Apogee offers its residents some of the most breathtaking views in the city. Downtown Miami, Fisher Island, Key Biscayne, and the Atlantic Ocean with its miles of shoreline are just some of the sights enjoyed from the condos' vantage points.
The reflecting pool surrounding Apogee's exterior adds a soothing, tranquil quality to the overall design. The building's Yabu Pushelberg-inspired lobby features sculptures created exclusively for Apogee by the Cuban-born, Miami resident, Jose Bedia. It's where visitors and residents are introduced to the luxurious finishes awaiting them on the 2.88 acres.
The 24-hour white-glove concierge service maintains optimal security and assists residents with their needs. Likewise, the 24-hour valet service sees to visitors and owners' parking needs, expertly maneuvering vehicles between the building's entry and each resident's oversized double parking spaces in the enclosed structure.
When it's time to take advantage of the athletic facilities, there's plenty of opportunity. Apogee provides a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, a spa, and a heated infinity lap pool.
The outdoor garden setting and open-air party pavilion outfitted with a kitchen and BBQ make it the ideal spot to host a get together with friends. If simple relaxation is on the agenda, there's no better place to settle in with a good book and cool drink. The resort-style poolside cabanas provide comfort, privacy, and relief from the sun.
It's been said that first impressions are the most lasting, and once residents are introduced to the ultra-modern amenities equipped in each condo, there's no turning back. Arriving home by way of personal elevator service, the keyless fingerprint door entry system offers access just through the 4' X 8' entry doors to the personal world of luxury.
Technology continues with an AMX interactive smart panel providing immediate communication with security, valet, concierge, spa, and other building services. Additionally, the lighting system can be customized thanks to the Lutron wireless system.
Sound-reducing double slabs constructed between floors add to the sense of serenity, as each condo is truly a home of its own. The designers took noise reduction a step further by enclosing each energy-efficient heat and air conditioning unit within concrete walls and designing cast iron plumbing.
Kitchen amenities include high-end finishes and appliances that include Salvatore cabinetry, Franke bar sinks and faucets, and a 27" sub-zero wine storage refrigerator that holds 132 bottles. Each kitchen is also equipped with two dishwashers to accommodate pots and pans as well as fine crystal and china.
Premium appliances are only the beginning of resident kitchen options. It continues with accommodating personal style, and the perks that include gourmet-specific kitchen design, one for the entertainer, and yet another for the connoisseur. While all kitchens are outfitted with only top-quality Miele ranges and ovens, personal style and needs dictate the options. Gas and electric configurations are offered.
The Miele appliance theme continues into the laundry room where each unit is outfitted with a super-sized front loading washer and dryer.
When it comes to outdoor entertaining, just step through the open doorway of the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. Each balcony offers an expansive 11' width as well as a summer kitchen. There's an impressive amount of room to mingle while grilling and settle into outdoor dining while enjoying the sights.
Gas fireplaces located in each unit's living room and master bedroom suite provide the perfect ambiance to unwind and reflect on the day.
With a touch of a button, close out the world with the optional automated curtain and blind system. Engage the custom audio/visual system for a theater worthy movie or listening to favorite artists.
As with all of the other custom finishes offered to the residents of Apogee, the master bath features the ultimate in luxury and quality. Vanity style variations range from cast concrete to European style cabinetry with imported marble countertops. Extra-wide soaking tubs and triple-head showers are included among the personal options residents may choose. No detail is left undone. The 30 X 30" stone floors and walls create stately elegance while customized steam rooms provide relief.
