Shell Bay Club Announces October Opening
Witkoff Group and PPG Development have announced that the Shell Bay Club, located within their exclusive Shell Bay community, will be opening this October. Membership is by invitation only and will require some of the highest initiation fees in North America. The club’s shining jewel will be the 7,300-yard golf course designed by Greg Norman; it will be the first new private course in Miami in more than 20 years. Not long after the club’s opening, it will become part of The Residences at Shell Bay, for which sales have already commenced. As part of the Auberge Resorts Collection, the Residences will include 108 condominiums, a 60-key Auberge resort, a wellness and longevity center, a 48-slip private marina and yacht club, and a racquet club.
Live Overlooking the Famed Old Course at St. Andrews for £2.3 Million
In Scotland, you could own a home overlooking the world’s oldest and most famous golf course, reports Mansion Global. A residence at the Hamilton Grand in St. Andrews, Scotland, has hit the market for £2.3 million ($2.93 million). The two-bedroom home overlooks the 18th hole of the Old Course. Like the course, the Hamilton Grand is rich with history; it is reportedly the first building in Scotland to have a pneumatic elevator and hot and cold water in every bathroom. During WWII, the building was used as training quarters for the Royal Air Force. The Hamilton Grand has since been restored, and the restoration involved the creation of 27 homes, a private residents’ lounge, and a roof terrace. The residence in question features hardwood floors, an open-layout kitchen, a Georgian-style fireplace, and two balconies with French doors and cast-iron handrails.
A First Look at ONE Park Tower’s Interiors and Amenities
Turnberry’s ONE Park Tower has unveiled a first look at its interiors and amenities designed by Meyer Davis and Arquitectonica. The 33-story tower will be part of the SoLé Mia master-planned community in North Miami and will house 299 residences. Each will feature porcelain floors, oversized primary bedrooms with walk-in closets, and primary bathrooms with wet rooms containing showers and a soaking tub. From the wraparound terraces that line each floor, residents will enjoy views of Oleta River State Park, Biscayne Bay, the Miami city skyline, and the man-made Crystal Lagoon, which is the size of 21 Olympic pools. Other amenities will include a two-story sports club spanning 100,000 square feet, private swimming pools, eight miles of biking and running trails, and pickleball courts. Completion is expected by the end of 2025.
The Weeknd Sells Westwood Penthouse for $2 Million Loss
Singer, songwriter, and producer The Weeknd sold his Westwood penthouse for $19 million after only two years. The four-bedroom, six-bathroom home spans 8,000 square feet and features a gym with a mirrored wall. The residence’s asking price has declined steadily since its original listing in February at $21 million; the selling price is 3.8% lower than the last asking price of $19.8 million and $2 million less than what The Weeknd originally paid in 2019. The home’s new owner has not been identified, according to the Real Deal; whoever they are, they will be able to enjoy views of the Los Angeles Country Club, where the U.S. Open Golf Championship was held in June.
