Fisher Island Penthouse Seeks a Record $90 Million

A 15,000-square-foot penthouse that will crown the forthcoming 50-residence condominium building on Miami’s exclusive Fisher Island has a mind-blowing $90 million asking price, reports the Wall Street Journal. Developed by the Related Group with architecture by Kobi Karp, the sweeping home was originally seeking $60 million; however, developers decided to raise the price by 50% after “executives there crunched the numbers…and believed that is what the penthouse is worth.”

The sweeping home will include its own roof deck with a private pool and lounge area. The development is expected to break ground in the third quarter of 2023. A $40 million condominium at Palazzo della Luna holds the current record for priciest condo sold on Fisher Island.

100-Story Dubai “Hypertower” Will Be World’s Tallest Residential Building

Watchmaker Jacob & Co. and Emirati development firm Binghatti are planning to erect a colossal 100-story megascraper in Dubai’s financial district that will snag the title of world’s tallest residential building from Manhattan’s Central Park Tower, the Daily Mail reported.

Dubbed the Burj Binghatti Jacob & Co. Residences, the sky-high building will boast a crown of diamond-shaped spires and offer ultralavish two- and three-bedroom residences, along with five penthouses inspired by Jacob & Co.’s watchmaking collections. 

The supertall will also house an exclusive private club with a lounge and infinity pool and will provide a la carte services, including private chefs, daycare services, and bodyguards.
