Construction Is Now Underway At Aston Martin Residences

A groundbreaking ceremony was held yesterday at Aston Martin Residences.

At the groundbreaking event on Wednesday, October 18, 2017, Aston Martin and G&G Business Developments celebrated that they launched construction of Aston Martin Residences, the first Downtown Miami condominium project to break ground this year. The event master of ceremonies DJ Irie started off the celebration by counting down to a special over-the-top VIP shovel ceremony punctuated by a marching band, confetti drop, and water show courtesy of the U.S. Coastguard. Following the ceremony, guests were invited for a champagne toast and treated to hors’ de oeuvres inside the project’s on-site sales gallery where they were welcomed by a $2.5 million limited-edition Aston Martin “Vulcan” (only one of 24 in the world) at the building’s entrance. Noticeable guests included, Mayor Tomas Regalado, Miami City Commissioner Francis Suarez, Simon Sproule, Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer at Aston Martin, and German Coto, CEO of G&G Business Developments. The 66-story ultra-luxury waterfront tower represents the continued expansion of Aston Martin’s brand beyond sports cars and marks the iconic company’s foray into the high-stakes world of luxury real estate development.

This has to be the fast project ever to go from concept to ground breaking. Lets see if it actually happens. Thumbs up for the developer.

Fastest from concept to ‘ground breaking’… lets see what kind of speed they actually move at following the pomp and circumstance.

Last week we had a presentation by the developer and they shared a few more details about this project like the fact that there will not be any retail on the ground floor and that certain buyers will get an Aston Martin. They are definitely going for a very elite crowd. Studios on the lower floors start at $700K. The only other building on par with this one is 1000 Museum.

World class, and that’s an understatement.

So the steam-rolling Brickellization of downtown continues. That lot is amazingly small for such a dense development. The highly touted announcement that there’ll be no retail at street level indicates that the building will be a fortress of wealth and not a contributor to an urban fabric that I think most of us would like Miami to become. We really don’t need more static glass walls on our sidewalks. We need shops and places for people to walk to – have a coffee, buy a paper, or have dinner. Empty streets make for boring streets.
Thumbs down on this one and shove your Austin-Martin.

So, between Miami and Miami Beach, there still isn’t enough retail and restaurants for you?

Hey Gene, you’re typical of what people see on this site, a person who wants a whole lot on other people’s money.

Well, you have quite a few places to choose from, why pick on this building?

That is sooo not what she is saying. It will be totally right to have some sort of retail or public space in the first floor, even expensive shopping and restaurants. She is not asking to live out of other’s money, but exemplifying an urban theory that has been proven right all around the world. Do you want a Houston or a NY City? well, the response to that question is in the approach to the first floor. There will be a walkway on the river side, nothing better that have some sort of response to that condition.

So, with Brickell City Centre literally a skip jump and a hop across the bridge, Miami World Center nearby, the up and coming Miami Central, and I haven’t even mentioned the rest of downtown…and you and Gene are still picking on this building for not having “some sort of retail or public space in the first floor, even expensive shopping and restaurants?”

Um yeah, sounds like someone who wants a whole lot of something on another person’s money.

You act as if there is nothing around this building for people to do. Have you even walked around this area? Epic is next door with 2 restaurants and bars, One Miami next door has Il Gabiano, a huge Movie Complex is opening in 2018 right across the street, not to mention a Wholefoods and all the other restaurants and retail all within 3 blocks. I would hardly say they are “boring streets”.

Gene, go back to the question what came first, the chicken or the egg?
How can you have shops and cafes without people?
Not every building has to have a store front. That the lot is small, should not be relevant.

It’s probably going to add $500 Million to the tax rolls. Yeah, all those rich people’s property taxes won’t help Miami AT ALL. Let’s keep it a vacant lot full of weeds and homeless people!

The best part is that the homeless and unwashed masses can still use the baywalk which will eventually have to be opened up after construction is complete. lmao !!!!

Desperate attempts to recoup their overpaid $125 Million for the land.

These mofos may try to obstruct the bay walk. Better if they wall themselves off. Looks like they are paying off a lot of high and mighty.
