Elite automakers are racing to fill the demand for car-centric condos. Lamborghini is building in Dubai; Pininfarina (the designers behind classic Ferraris) in Guatemala City. But Miami remains the epicenter of automobile-inspired residences. German Coto, CEO of G&G Business Developments, the firm behind Aston Martin Residences says, “The demand for Miami continues to be very strong, with great interest from broad reaching parts of the United States and the rest of the world.”

Bentley Residences

Sunny Isles Beach, Florida

This beachfront development (a sleek column with unique, curvilinear floor plans), holds 216 residences, each with an individual balcony swimming pool and unobstructed views through seamless floor-to-ceiling glass. The upper levels have additional sunset terraces. Natural materials feature throughout the building; some key components are wood, leather, and glass, drawing parallels with Bentley cars. The exciting thing for the Bentley design team was to be able to take the same materials and go beyond anything that can be achieved in a car, making use of the substantially larger spaces and diversity of areas. Private and communal amenities include: a private elevator (also for your car), cinema, games room (with simulators both for golf and for driving), wellness center and spa, whiskey bar, cigar lounge, and white-tablecloth restaurant. The cinema has been designed to mimic the luxe interior of a Bentley automobile. From $4.5 million;

Aston Martin Residences


Aston Martin Residences in Miami is the legendary British automotive brand’s first venture into luxury real estate. The curvaceous building stands on one of the last parcels of developable land on the downtown Miami waterfront—at the point where the Miami River meets Biscayne Bay. The building features 391 one- to five-bedroom residences and duplexes with Gaggenau kitchens, endless glass windows, and sliding glass doors to private balconies with panoramic views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Miami skyline. Bold-and-modern interiors and public spaces throughout the property reflect Aston Martin’s dynamic design vision. Each of the residences has sleek white walls and black marble–accented floors. This grand but subtle look allows the aqua blues of the Atlantic to contribute to each residence’s indoor/outdoor ambiance. There’s a 24-hour personal butler service and a 24-hour valet garage (that includes EV charging stations). Residents with yachts appreciate the direct access to Biscayne Bay via a private, 900-foot, full-service, deep-water superyacht marina. Residences from $750,000 to $8.5 million; penthouses from $14 million to $50 million;
