Alan Faena, Faena Group of Buenos Aires has a vision: “Turn the Saxony Hotel, along with two other prime pieces of beach real estate into The Faena District Miami Beach,” which will include Faena House, Faena Hotel, and Faena Arts Center. Situated on the widest stretch of white sand in Miami, Coastal began construction of Faena House, the first element of the District, in September of 2012. Faena House is an 18-story oceanfront luxury condominium, designed by internationally renowned architects Foster + Partners of London, and is comprised of 45 one to five bedroom units, each with panoramic ocean views from its wraparound outdoor living terrace, or “Alero”. There are also three full floor penthouses, which feature private interior elevators and outdoor pools. The Faena Hotel includes the partial demolition, renovations and an addition to the existing historical Saxony Hotel. When completed, the hotel will feature approximately 200 rooms with a theater, spa, indoor and outdoor dining and multiple bars. Revuelta Architecture International of Miami will serve as the architect of record for the entire project.
