Style File: Apogee Condominium
When you live in one of the hottest destinations in the world, knowing what's popular and what's passe can change frequently. But if you're looking to stay up on the latest trends, look no further. Every Thursday night, we're going to preview what's next in South Florida...It's something we call "7's Style File."
WSVN -- Hot clubs, hot fashion, Hot people.
South Florida has them all. But knowing where to go and what to wear is forever changing.
Knowing where to live can be forever comforting. This space may not look like much now, but just wait.
Welcome to Apogee. It's South Beach's latest luxury high-rise.
Surrounded by the ocean, Biscayne Bay, and government cut - it is slated for groundbreaking in April.
Jorge Perez, The Related Group of Florida: "We are looking to spoil, we are looking to really make it an oasis."
An oasis based on the latest technology.
Here, you can forget fumbling for keys, all you need is one finger.
Jorge Perez: "The technology, is going to be the highest and the latest."
And that's just for starters. In this model unit, you can make a spa reservation on a keypad.
Set the mood with these custom lighting schemes, and watch a DVD in your mirror in the bathroom.
Jorge Perez: "There are going to be 67 households that are going to live here, and they are going to be very pampered."
Unbelievable? Yes. Affordable, well that depends. The units range from $3 million to $15 million dollars.
But with all the amenities and with so many restaurants close by, it's understandable why sixty percent are already pre-sold.
Jorge Perez: "You can walk out your door and be eating in a fabulous restaurant be out in the middle of the night and have nice warm ocean breeze hitting our face."
Richard and Beth Tasca can't wait for moving day. They're getting to customize their condo.
Richard Tasca: "When we were first introduced to the project we were told they would be happy to customize the unit for us."
And their options are unlimited...
Take your pick of three different kitchens. Entertain on your 11-foot balcony with custom grill. Relax in this spacious living room designed to your specifications. Or check out the master bathroom - even the tub resembles a mini-swimming pool.
Jorge Perez: "You can't judge a book by it's cover but the cover here is pretty nice."
And so is the service. Did we mention each unit comes complete with it's own butler. That's why Apogee is truly the epitome of luxury.
Richard Tasca: "This is really what life down here is all about."
Apogee plans to open its doors in 2006.
