Second Tower At Estates At Acqualina Now Underway, Both Will Break Sunny Isles Height Record

The Trump Group has confirmed that they plan to build the twin-tower Estates At Acqualina as the two tallest buildings in Sunny Isles, and signed a contract to begin construction on the second tower.

“With strong pre-sales, commitments from our buyers and clients, and our recent $558 million construction loan announced last month, we are now building both towers and the entire residential development all at once. This assures future residents of a hassle-free move-in, particularly in light of the fact that residences at the Estates are built out to a furniture-ready standard,” said developer Jules Trump. “This is an incredible time for us and we are offering a unique lifestyle that will set it apart from the rest of the world.”

Last month, the developer submitted an application to the Federal Aviation Administration to build the project at 700 feet above sea level, or 692 feet above ground.

Trump spokesperson Alexandra Wensley confirmed that both 50-story towers would become the tallest in Sunny Isles if the FAA approves the new height.

Until now, most of the recent condo developments in the city have been built at 649 feet above sea level, and none have yet broken that barrier. Some of the buildings currently at 649 feet include Porsche Design Tower, Mansions at Acqualina, and Muse. Also under construction with plans to build to 649 feet are Ritz-Carlton Residences, Turnberry Ocean Club Residences and Residences by Armani Casa.

The Estates at Acqualina is a $1.6 billion project set to include about 245 residences, including three single family homes and three two-story penthouses. The penthouses and single family homes will have their own private pools.

Recently added amenities include a Speakeasy, a salt room, and a boxing ring. Other previously announced amenities include an ice skating rink, a Formula One simulator, a golfing simulator, bowling lanes, a movie theater, and a Wall Street Trader’s Club room

Prices range from $4.2 to $14 million, with penthouses priced up to $35 million.

Meanwhile Porsche and Muse stop construction and follow suit with a file to the FAA. 700 feet or bust.

I think what the anonymous is trying to say is that if the FAA allows 700 feet for Sunny isles, Porsche and Muse may want to upgrade their own height top to 700 feet as well.

Edgewater deserves this type of quality instead of crap like Gran Paraiso.

Very cool. Especially building the entire project at once.

It will not be approve at 700 FT above ground. Sunny Isles is on the OPF flight path, just like Edgewater is on the flight path of MIA.

Sunny Isles is definitely NOT on OPF flight path…

Look at the map and see for yourself.

So what’s the reason for the height restrictions?

It’s on the OPF flight path.

Yes, it’s on the flight path of OPF. The flight path is not just a line on the map. If is not on the flight path, why the 649 FT MSL restriction? The FAA will never approve 700 FT MSL.

If it’s the Trump Group connected to the current administration, a pox on their house.

No, Jules Trump (this developer) is not related to the Trump family in the White House. He just has the same unfortunate name….

nothing unfortunate with the name. Anti-Trump people are deranged.

I guess those Trump University students who sued him are also “ant-Trump deranged people.”

If Trump University was a real university instead of some branding for a seminar on the world’s most risky business of real estate, it must be a better than your community college education where you can’t even properly quote somebody without screwing up. You can even edit comments now…

You have to be an “arse” to run the most powerful country in the world, like all his predecessors, including Jimmy freaking Carter.
