Armani Residences

According to a source, developers Gil Dezer and Jorge Perez are teaming up to build a condo tower full of Armani branded residences on 190th street in Sunny Isles Beach in a building designed by world famous architect Cesar Pelli, known to Miami as the guy that designed the Arsht Center. Sunny Isles, the most Dubai-like section of Miami (which might be mostly Dezer’s fault) is the perfect location. In cool minimalism reminiscent of an Armani suit, Armani residences are fancy. The world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, has 190 of them, which were all apparently designed by Giorgio Armani himself.
