The developers of the Regalia oceanfront condominium residences have something new to celebrate this week; their project has just received a temporary certificate of occupancy. In addition, 85 percent of the project is currently under contract to close, with wealthy buyers coming both from the United States, and internationally from places like Brazil, Argentina, Canada, Russia and Venezuela.
"The completion of Regalia brings to fruition our vision of 'limited-edition living' unlike anything else available on the current market," said Montello, who as a first-time developer was instrumental in assembling an impressive team of experienced design and construction personnel to develop the project in 2011. "We broke ground on Regalia during uncertain time for South Florida's real estate market and yet our confidence in the product proved to be well-found as evident from the overwhelming response we received from both domestic and international buyers."
Of the eight remaining ultra-luxury residences, include: six spacious luxury residences - one per floor - starting at $10 million; and two multi-story penthouses, including the Beach House, a two-story 9,915 square-foot under air oceanfront residence featuring eight bedrooms and night and one half baths, with 6,500 square feet of terraces offering a private plunge pool and Jacuzzi priced at $27 million; and the Rooftop Penthouse, a four-story, 10,447 square-foot under air residence featuring nine bedrooms and 10.5 baths, with 8,857 square feet of wrap-around terraces and private terrace complete with rooftop pool, sun deck and personal spa, priced at $40 million.
The 46-story tower is the product of a love affair with its designer, Bernardo Fort Bresca, founding principal of the world-renowned Arquitectonica. Bresca shaped the building in a manner that would emulate the essence of oceanfront living in Florida: water and wind. The exterior design of the construction appears to have a wind-sculpted organic shape with wrap-around glass balconies - positioned at a slightly different angle on every floor - that produce the illusion of dancing along the shore. A total of 39 fully customizable residences range in size. All residences feature 10-foot or more floor-to-ceiling windows that offer unobstructed 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway and South Florida, along with a 10-foot deep wrap-around terrace that surrounds every residence.
Interiors and public spaces were designed and finished by Charles Allem, whose resolute determination to create a matchless masterwork resonates throughout every aspect of Regalia. The main lobby is centered by massive bronze archway portals that evoke visions of a Greek-Mediterranean palace, while still maintaining the feel of a private residence. A large social meeting room opens to the main deck entry infinity pool, which appears to flow directly into the ocean beyond. Private poolside cabanas protected by themed sand dunes as well as state-of-the-art fitness facilities, private spa, couples sauna and 24-hour concierge service adds to the luxury allure of life in Regalia.

With more than 160-feet of shoreline, Regalia sits on more than one acre on the last oceanfront parcel in Sunny Isles Beach, fixed on the southern border of Golden Beach's two-mile stretch of residential houses that allow for unobstructed views to the north. The organic, flowing façade stands as an iconic fixture and anchor for the future skyline of "Billionaires Row."
