While everyone else was seeing and being seen at Art Basel, Future was busy planning his future in Miami. The rapper purchased a $7.5 million 3 bedroom residence at the waterfront Bentley Residences in Sunny Isles Beach this week, just one month after purchasing one of the spectacular waterfront homes on Allison Island, a private gated enclave of just 49 homes.

While the Allison Island home is indeed something to discuss, with neighbors including Shakira, Pitbull and Lil Wayne, today we are here to delve into the equally luxe and secure Bentley Residences. It is easy to see why the “Life is Good” rapper would be attracted to Bentley Residences in Sunny Isles Beach.

Rising 60 floors above the sand at 18401 Collins Avenue, Bentley Miami Residences will have 200 condominiums reaching 749 feet into the sky. Each residence has at least 3 bedrooms and between 2,800-3,000 square feet with water views and expansive terraces with private heated swimming pools and outdoor kitchens with Gaggenau Vario electric grills.

The new tower will represent Bentley throughout. This is not a simple licensing deal for the tower and the brand. For starters, Bentley vehicles have a distinct diamond stitching on the leather seating surfaces, so that diamond pattern was added to the exterior glass of the building allowing for the development to be unmistakably Bentley from the moment you drive in from the street. They have also incorporated the special metal feel that the cars offer on every touch point into the apartments. This includes manufacturing their own faucet handles, door handles, etc. so that they have that special Bentley knurling.

Interior Finishes

Inside the residences, owners enjoy stone floors, walls, backsplashes and countertops, Gaggenau appliance packages with wine coolers, steam & convection ovens, built-in coffee bars, and Italian kitchen cabinets with motorized doors. Primary suites include behind-mirror televisions, saunas, water-view soaking tubs, towel warmers and heated floors. Primary closets all feature safes, and each door in the ultra-luxury development features the Flying B on the lever.

Keeping the Bentley theme flowing throughout the development, the common areas and amenities also emulate the luxury brand, from the three-story lobby to the cinema that is designed to be a reproduction of the comfort and style experienced from the vehicles themselves.

The “Dezervator”

While the tower itself is new, the development and design team have plenty of history together. Gil Dezer, a car enthusiast who is known for unapologetically flaunting his wealth on the road, has teamed up with Sieger Suarez Architects to design the project. This is the same team that designed Bentley’s sister project, Porsche Design Tower, in 2016.

The central feature of Porsche Design Tower was Dezer’s newly-patented “Dezervator.” The Dezervator is a special elevator that takes residents from the ground level of the building directly to their apartments without leaving their vehicles, so they can park by the door as though they were in a home. This is far more convenient than having to deal with valet. With Bentley Residences, the experience will always be upgraded. The residence that Future chose has a sky-garage that holds 4 cars at a time, allowing him to demonstrate his collection to others as he comes and goes from the building.

To see a preview of the Dezervator from Gil himself, check out this Youtube video.

“Owners of collector cars purchase them as pieces of rolling art, and we are happy to be able to provide a proper showcase for them in each residence by bringing the car up in the Dezervator and parking it adjacent to the unit, on view through a glass wall dividing the garage from the living room,” says Gil Dezer, president of Dezer Development. “Having four parking spaces adjacent to your unit . . . is a game-changer.”

If you are Future, life is indeed good. Construction is slated to begin in 2023, with closings taking place in 2026.
