Pinetree Drive: Berço do Luxo em Miami

Pinetree Drive em Miami Beach é uma longa alameda a sombra de pinheiros centenários, que se entende por 30 quadras desta cidade ensolarada.  Possui  casarões históricos e um legado de bravura contra tempestades, mudanças culturais e gostos arquitecturais. Alguns do imóveis esperam, razoavelmente bem mantidos, por donos novos. Casas historicas no mercado na área hoje chegam a U$18 milhões. Visitei o casarão mais barato: US$679 mil. Esnobava velhos luxos:  azulejos cubanos, arcos, estuque (argamassa feita com pó de mármore, cal fina, gesso e areia) e detalhado rodapés.

Apesar de não oferecer os imóveis mais caros da cidade hoje, a “Pinetree” tem pedigree social. Afinal, em suas mansões os magnatas do começo do século, John Collins, Carl Fisher e os Irmãos Lummus construíram a imagem da cidade como destinação de veraneio e fronteira imobiliária.

As mansões oferecem detalhes escondidos, jardins internos, despensas, antigas palmeiras e fruta no cacho. Algumas são dos anos 20 — quando elefantes ainda eram usados em Miami Beach para arrancar as raízes fortes do mangue  e carregar tijolos. Outras foram restauradas com perfeição e possuem ate 20 quartos, varias piscinas e garagem de barco.

“Pinetree Drive:  Crib of the Luxury in Miami”

Pinetree Drive in Miami Beach is a long street lined with giant centenary pines. It streches itself for 30 blocks from 23rd Street all the way to 60th Street. It has historic mansions and a legacy of bravery against storms, cultural changes and architectural tastes. Some of the historical properties are quite well maintained. The highest active listing in the market now is a $18 million house. While showing houses this weekend, I visited the cheapest listing in the area: $ 679,000. The house showcased luxuries of an old world: Cuban tiles, arches, stucco (plaster made with marble dust, fine lime, gypsum and sand) and detailed work on the walls.

 Although not the most expensive area in the city today, the houses on Pinetree have social pedigree. After all, in their mansions the magnates of the beginning of the century, John Collins, Carl Fisher and the Lummus Brothers built the city’s image as a destination resort and the ultimate real estate frontier for the rich and the poor.

The mansions offer hidden details such as internal gardens, double pantries, old palm trees and fruit trees. Some of the houses are from the 1920s – when elephants were still used in Miami Beach to clear the roots of the mangrove and carry the bricks that built Miami Beach. Others houses have been restored to perfection and have up to 20 rooms, several swimming pools and private marina.

GogoMiami took field trip to New York City  to show you the new concept store for Melissa, makers of the coolest plastic shoes in the world. It is its first store in the USA. Melissa, a trademark of the giant Brazilian manufacturer Grandene, is the talk of town. Its shoes, the original plastic ‘jellies,’ are sold at Louvre in Paris and at the Dover Street Market in London. Melissa’s special collaborations with   top fashion designers and artists such as Vivienne Westwood, Zaha Hadid, Jason Wu and the Campana Brothers strike a dialogue between art, fashion and the ingenuity of the Brazilian mind. According to artist Fernando Campana, his collaboration with Melissa has been  delightful: ”you have got to have a lot of experience to make our crazy ideas come true.”

The concept store in SoHo, located on 102 Greene Street, fits perfectly with cutting edge image of the company: it is a white gallery that allows the design collaborations to shine. For its opening gig, the store also showcases art by Brazilian artist Eli Sudbrack. With such a fun mix, Gogomiami sees one more city where a store like that could work…can you guess where?

St. Regis Bal Harbour

O hotel e as residências do St.Regis Bal Harbour trazem um glamour de Bossa Nova ao mercado imobiliário de caras e bocas de Miami. As torres são discretas, sofisticadas, amplas e sem necessidade de provar nada a ninguém.  O mais novo empreendimento de luxo da rede hoteleira Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide em Miami é a epitomia do legado de Lady Astor, que fundou a marca St.Regis, símbolo da nata da sociedade em Nova York, a mais de um século.

O empreendimento esta send avaliado em 1 bilhão de dólares. Contem 243 suites e duas torres residenciais com 255 apartamentos que variam em preço de $1.9 a $10 milhões de dólares. O complexo situa-se em frente ao Bal Harbour Shops, o shopping  center mais caro do mundo. Porém o luxo mesmo é o fato de ser banhado pelo belo mar turquesa de Miami, e o sol, que marca presença nesta cidade.

Quem compra no St. Regis, compra o estilo de vida da marca. Residentes tem acesso as amenidades e atendimento 5 estrelas do hotel, que inclui a famosa equipe de mordomos, 9 acres de paisagismo, Spa da Remède  e restaurante assinado por  Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, os mais celebrado mestre-cuca dos Estados Unidos.

O décor é simbolo-mor da finesse do duo Yabu Pushelberg, decoradores que discretamente estão imprimindo sua marca em Miami com interiores que brindam tonalidades  simples e austeridade moderna. Os interiores do St. Regis esbaldam espelhos envelhecidos, raros mármores, tetos em formas de rosas e arte contemporânea de parada obrigatória.

pièce de résistance do saguão de entrada é um veado de vidro em tamanho natural do artista japonês Kohei Nawa. Em suas centenas de bolhas de vidro, que formam uma réplica computadorizada do animal  — metaforicamente perdido nos trópicos —  a luz se perde, refletindo mar, gente, luvas brancas e o estilo encapsulado do St. Regis: Lady Astor se sentiria em casa em Miami no século XXI.

St. Regis Bal Harbour  [get lost in the translation at your own risk]

The St. Regis Bal Harbour Hotel and its residences are as refreshing as a bossa nova tune. The towers are discreet, sophisticated and spacious. The truth is, the St. Regis brand does not need to prove anything to anyone. It opened this year and represents well the solid legacy of Lady Astor, who founded a brand that has been the symbol of high society in New York for more than one century.

Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide own the development–claimed to have cost close to $ 1 billion. It contains 243 suites and two residential towers with 245 apartments ranging in price from $ 1.9 to $ 10 million. It is located across from the Bal Harbour Shops, the most expensive mall in the world. However, the real luxury is the fact that property is kissed by Miami’s turquoise waters and everlasting sun.

Buying at the St. Regis is buying the distinguished lifestyle of the centenary brand. Residents have access to the 5-star hotel amenities and services, including the St. Regis highly trained team of butlers, 9 acres of landscaping, the Remède Spa (with its 12 treatment rooms) and a restaurant headed by acclaimed Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

The pool cabanas are a pursuit in leisure and sophistication and they reflect with comfort the concept developed throughout the space by the award-winning  interiors firm, Yabu Pushelberg.

The  luxury design duo, George Yabu and Gleen Pushelberg, have been quietly leaving their mark in Miami with interiors marked by muted colors, austere elegance and always a strong artistic point of view. The interiors of the St. Regis are no different: they are a collection of aged mirrors, rare marbles and comfortable and distinct sitting areas where guests may enjoy perfect cocktails and look at smart art.

The pièce de résistance  of the lobby is a glass deer sculpture by Japanese artist Kohei Nawa. The hundreds of glass bubbles form a computerized replica of the animal– metaphorically lost in the tropics. They absorb the light in multiples, reflecting  sea, people, white gloves and the encapsulated St. Regis’ style. Lady Astor would feel at home in this version of  21st century Miami.
