Paris, 30 May 2024

ELLE, the leading fashion and lifestyle media brand in the world, will bring Parisian influence to Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood by further expanding its influential footprint beyond the pages of its magazines with its first ever residential tower – ELLE Residences Miami.

After the opening of ELLE Hospitality’s flagship Maison ELLE Hotel in Paris and a second location recently in Amsterdam, ELLE’s history of placemaking and innovation is again expanding into lifestyle experiences and services.

ELLE Residences will be an extension of the experience of the magazine which has supported – since its creation in France in 1945 – millions of women all over the world, in all areas of their daily lives and in their desires. It promises a lifestyle brimming with joie de vivre (“joy of living”), mirroring the magazine’s chic aesthetic and trendsetting influence in the heart of Miami, enhancing Edgewater’s bayside location as one of the city’s most desirable destinations.

Behind this visionary project are Vertical Developments and Urban Network Capital Group (UNCG), heralding a one-of-a-kind product that unites fashion and real estate, marking a pivotal moment in ELLE’s storied history, thanks to a licensing agreement signed with Lagardère Médias News.

Rising 25 stories, a collection of 180 residences will be delivered turnkey in the most distinct form that embodies ELLE’s Parisian roots. Interiors by The One Atelier, the talent behind real estate projects with many differents brand, will reflect the daring, innovative and inspirational design seen in the pages of ELLE DECOR, emulating its philosophy of creating spaces for life’s moments, combining a relaxed, carefree spirit and global consciousness with the elegance of the modern, contemporary dwelling.

Seamlessly combining high-touch service and resort-style amenities with the warmth of home, flexible rental capabilities will be offered, granting owners the freedom to make their residences available for short-term use. Priced from the $525,000s, floor plans will range from studios to two-bedrooms, along with penthouses, between 450 to 845 square feet. ELLE Residences Miami will be exclusively represented by Fortune Development Sales.

Two expansive floors are dedicated to amenities where beauty abounds. Wellness enthusiasts will enjoy a high-tech gym and outdoor fitness lawn while a luxurious spa will boast steam, sauna and cold plunge and a meditation garden. Dwellers will be encouraged to come together at the gourmet summer kitchen, at the fire pit or to screen a film at the outdoor movie theater. Lush landscape will surround the French Riviera-inspired sundeck with a resort pool and private cabanas. Crowning the tower, a rooftop pool offers arresting panoramic views from sunrise to sunset and a stylish resident-only lounge features an entertainment salon and a listening bar. Uniting highly thoughtful spaces with a striking façade, architecture was led by Behar & Partners. 

ELLE Residences Miami is a new step in the diversification of the ELLE brand. In addition to the magazines and digital platforms that have made it famous, the brand is also very present in the world of fashion, decoration and lifestyle, through product collections and services, such as cafes, trade fairs, etc., reaching some 250 million people around the world each month.

“ELLE brand’s success to date has been thanks to our innovations and we are proud to continue to challenge the status quo, as ELLE enters into a new era with residences. We are thrilled to launch ELLE into the world of real estate development with experienced and renowned partners such as Vertical Developments and Urban Network Capital Group.
This new concept of ELLE Residences will present exciting gateways that will allow owners and residents to see the apartment buildings through a new lens and through ELLE’s vision”
