Luxury Living: The Four Seasons Hotel and Tower
It's a hotel known for its' five star service, and now, the Four Seasons is opening in Miami. But this one won't just be a hotel... It will be a luxury high-rise condo as well. Tonight, we're taking you inside for an exclusive tour before the doors open to the public.
(WSVN) -- It stands high above Brickell Avenue ... Soaring over everything in Florida.
The Four Seasons Hotel and Tower on Brickell is the tallest building in the state.
The developer of this 379-million dollar project says this is what Luxury Living is all about.
Brian Collins of Millennium Partners says, "The concept of putting a five star hotel with the condominiums is one to get them up in the air to accentuate the views and two, to be able to provide the five star service to the condominium buyers."
Inside the sleek glass tower, 70 floors of pure opulence.
The first 39 floors are the hotel.
But now, on floors 40 and up, you can own a condo, while enjoying the hotel's lux lifestyle and amenities.
Brian says, "Everything from housekeeping to room service, which you'd normally think of, to walking the dog."
He adds, "Four seasons doesn't know how to say no."
Designer and Architect Philip Martin takes us on a tour before the big opening day.
He converted this 4-thousand square foot condo on the tower's 55th floor into a three-bedroom, four and a half bath high-rise haven.
Philip Martin of BEA International says, "The inspiration for much of what we see here today has to do with my experiences of traveling all over the world."
Walk through the foyer into the living room and dining room area, where you'll get an amazing 180 degree view.
From the Brazilian walnut parquet floors, to the custom cabinetry and unique chandeliers... Martin designed everything.
"The space is so versatile in terms of what one can use it for."
The kitchen is top of the line, when it comes to cabinets and appliances.
The bedrooms take on a traditional feel -- painted in pretty pastels and earth tones.
One of the condo's best features has to be the bathtub, where you can shower in true luxury.
Philip says, "It's just extraordinary to think that you have the option of opening up these panels, sitting in a bubble bath, sipping some champagne and taking in the most extraordinary view."
The Four Seasons opens next Wednesday, October 1st.
The residences cost anywhere from 695-thousand to six million dollars
