This trendy Floridian paradise is perfect for families, couples, or a party of one with an array of activities and world-class amenities at their disposal. UNA Brickell Residences, Baccarat Residences, The Perigon, and Waldorf Astoria are this year’s hottest properties on the luxury real estate market and are set to join the city skyline in 2026. Although these projects are currently undergoing construction, available spots at these stunning residences are quickly filling up. Each location pushes the typical definitions of culture and opulence with an indelible twist in their state-of-the-art amenities, living spaces, and breath-taking views of the metropolis and its beaches. Wherever you choose to reside in one of these pristine locations, as a resident, you can be assured that your well-being and quality of life are treated with the utmost priority.

Baccarat Residences

Lush green courtyards and porte-cochéres, waterfront restaurants, curated art collections in every hall, a residential gourmet market, a Grand Salon for two, and an unforgettable party—this is what makes Baccarat Residences Brickell the next Palace of Versailles. 

Overlooking the Miami River, these 360 waterfront high-rise luxury apartments sport a refined elegance and sleek design with their Italian cabinetry, floor-to-ceiling windows, and imported stone countertops while featuring a breathtaking panoramic view of the Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami’s night skyline. At Baccarat Residences, the environment is dedicated to the wellness of each resident from the living space’s purified air, water, and enhanced sleep, to its vast open-space concept. The residence’s interior design is a refined combination of modernity and chic glamour with its gorgeous wood flooring and restorative light. Over 75 stories high of contemporary elegance, step away from the city and into Baccarat’s luscious 12th-floor terrace with its glamorous summer kitchen space and pool away from Miami’s vibrant local scene–restaurants, boutiques, and nightlife entertainment, all accessible by Baccarat’s convenient location to transportation, complimentary limousine service, and private marina. If the night feels cozy, do take advantage of their fully-equipped kitchen facilities and enjoy a meal from the residential gourmet market.

For families, Baccarat offers excellent facilities and services like their modern private theater, gaming facility, and playroom to entertain the kids, so while they take care of your loved ones, you can relax in one of the cabanas by the infinity pool with a glass of Masseto from their wine cellar and tasting room. And for the everyday plant and pet owners, Baccarat is a pet-friendly community with an on-sight pet spa and grooming, walking, and plant care services, courtesy of their 24-hour concierge. 

This residence is highly coveted for its residential access to the beautiful promenade connected to the Miami Circle National Historic Landmark Park for those looking to spend the day away from the bustling city life. For those preferring to be close to the city, Baccarat Residences is the place that provides a perfect balance between the urban landscape and privacy.


Waldorf Astoria

While you may not be reaching for the stars, as the saying goes, Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami will take you above the clouds. The stacked glass cube exterior was inspired by the design of the former World Trade Center with over 100 floors, the upper cubes reserved for private residences, and their exclusive amenities. Standing at an astonishing 1,049 feet, Waldorf is set to be Florida’s tallest super skyscraper and the newest standard for luxurious living. This architectural diamond was designed by the world-famous designers Carlos Ott and Sieger Suarez, emphasizing a spectacular view of South Beach, Biscayne Bay, and Downtown Miami. 

Waldorf Astoria gives Miami a new definition of opulence and sophistication with its modern Art Deco interior design, state-of-the-art kitchens, custom Italian cabinetry and vanities, Dornbracht and Duravit bathroom designs, and a flair for the contemporary. True to its goal of being one of the city’s most luxurious residences, this skyscraper prides itself on making its residents as comfortable as possible in their care and accommodating all their needs. Although only the junior suites come fully furnished, each apartment has 10 ft floor-to-ceiling views in every room overlooking Miami, along with built-out closets designed by the world-renowned interior firm BAMO, top of the line Subzero and Wolf appliances, and the building’s latest “smart” technology like the custom Waldorf Astoria Residency app that gives residents access to the building’s amenities and 24-hour concierge services to dinner reservations, spa treatments, valet, and dog walking services. 

Located right in the center of Downtown Miami’s business district and near the Miami World Center, Waldorf Astoria is heavily desirable for its direct access to some of the city’s best restaurants, entertainment, and boutiques outside of their many entertainment rooms, ballrooms, spas, fitness room, and Peacock Alley Club. Enjoy a cozy meal in their Michelin star restaurant with its breathtaking view of the city’s skyline, or unwind in the shade of a cabana by their private residential pool deck with its beautiful palm trees and signature outdoor café. With over 85% of its luxurious apartments and penthouses already sold, do not miss out on this Miami icon.

The Perigon

Are you wanting beaches and sunsets right in your backyard? Then look no further than The Perigon in Miami. This oceanfront residence offers an immense view of the ocean right from the expansive terrace outside your door. With over 17 floors and 82 residences, The Perigon has 2 to 4 bedroom floor plans, boasting between 2,100 and 6,700 square feet with magnificent amenities like its exclusive waterfront restaurant, fitness centers, spa, and pool oasis surrounded by shady palm trees, cabanas, and rich flora with a glorious view of the Miami Ocean. Besides the easy access to its private shoreline and ocean view, this residence has a relaxed and harmonious design that emphasizes comfort, luxury, open space concepts, and wellness, offering a playful escape to someplace more tropical while being a short walk away from Miami’s bustling restaurants, bars, and boutiques. 

The condos’ interiors are finished with a touch of elegance and sophistication, curated by the famous Tara Bernerd. Along with custom Italian kitchens, walk-in closets for every bedroom, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Miami Beach and skyline, beautiful islands and bathrooms with custom baths and natural stone flooring and walls, this residence offers a Zen-Bohemian appeal unlike any other luxury residence while still having a touch of modernity with all of the latest Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. Unlike other residences in Miami, The Perigon is keen on simulating a natural and serene state of mind for its residents by incorporating nature into the architecture, from small pocket oases to green flora sprawling over the terraces. Here, the architecture works with palm trees and flora instead of the other way around, no doubt adding to the popularity of its beautiful residential conservatory sprawling with shimmering ponds, paved walkways, and dense greenery. If you find yourself strolling around this piece of paradise, be sure to stop by their breakfast bar and lounge for some eggs and sunrise. 

Some of the residency’s other lavish amenities include its elegant speakeasy and cocktail lounge, private beauty salon and screening room, expansive children’s playroom, and other gardens and meditation rooms found all around the residence. For those who desire a change of environment from the monotonous modern designs of most luxury apartments but still want that high-end grandeur, The Perigon is the tropical utopia you’re looking for to sweep you away from the city life and into endless paradise.
