The Faena House in Miami Beach is scheduled to open in 2015 in Miami Beach. It is a 19-story building with 68 total units. It will be located at 3201 Collins Avenue right next to the Faena Saxony Hotel. The open and airy styled residences will have ultra-modern kitchens, expansive window walls leading out to very large balconies. It is the perfect outdoor living similar to Brazilian verandas.
The ultra-luxury Faena House will have the most futuristic design on Miami Beach, as developed by architect Lord Norman Foster. The building’s design is aerodynamic which mitigates the force of strong ocean winds. Each residence has been designed to maximize indoor and outdoor living by maximizing the use of terraces as additional living space. Glass sliding doors and windows will be 10 to 12 feet wide rather than the standard 4 foot wide. Kitchens by Dada are ultra modern and minimalist.
Faena House offers one to five bedroom fully finished residences with sleek and impeccably detailed interiors and all fixtures and appliances designed or selected by Foster+Partners. Each home has a majestic outdoor living terrace that wraps around its interior, known in Argentina as an “Alero.” The Aleros connect with interior spaces seamlessly through floor to ceiling window wall and sliding door systems custom designed by Foster+Partners and engineered by Permasteelisa to open up to 12.5 feet wide. Purchasers may select from several interior palette options to best suit their own distinct aesthetic for beachfront living. Three one-of-a-kind penthouses crown the residences with the full floor penthouse featuring a private interior elevator and outdoor pool.
Owners will enjoy exclusive access to thoughtfully conceived managed amenities. An impeccably trained, multilingual staff, and private residents’ concierge will look to daily needs and special requests with enthusiasm, expertise and resourcefulness. Faena House owners will enjoy preferred status and access to all hotel services provided by Faena Hotel, currently under construction, as well as all cultural offerings of the district.
Faena House is the first element of Faena District, which is destined to become a new paradigm for the fine art of living in Miami Beach. Alan Faena, curator of Buenos Aires’ most successful urban neighborhood and cultural center, has assembled an all-star team of collaborators – from architects and engineers to curators and chefs.
This thoughtfully conceived and executed new neighborhood is a private enclave that will be an international nexus for cultural activity and leisure. Faena District will traverse Miami Beach from the Atlantic Ocean to Indian Creek. Collins Avenue between 32nd and 35th streets will intersect the District. All Faena properties will total approximately six acres, and the beach frontage will be more than 730 linear feet.
Faena House Miami Beach will be a vision of true indoor-outdoor living, ingeniously engineered and meticulously constructed to exist in perfect harmony with nature. An extraordinary, 18-story oceanfront luxury condominium situated on the widest stretch of white sand in all of Miami Beach, bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Indian Creek to the west. Breakthrough architectural advances will allow panoramic views from ocean to bay with glass walls that open wide to virtually eliminate the division between inside and out.
Owners will enjoy exclusive access to first-rate, luxury amenities. An impeccably trained, multilingual staff and private concierge will tend to the daily needs and special requests of residents with enthusiasm, expertise and resourcefulness. Faena House owners will receive preferred status and access to all Faena Hotel services, as well as to all cultural offerings of the District.
Faena District will connect to the myriad entertainment and shopping areas of South Beach, yet it will be a world apart, with a more curated and elevated way of life. It is within minutes of the very best Miami has to offer: world-class shopping, provocative galleries and fine restaurants.

- Faena Hotel
- Faena Arts Center
- Faena Bazaar and artists-in-residence center
- Faena Marina on Indian Creek
- Faena Gardens
