About a month after being quietly announced, details of the anticipated Ritz-Carlton Residences South Beach (formerly the Sagamore Hotel) are beginning to trickle out with whispers of the sprawling ultra-luxury oceanfront penthouse that is expected to command $125 million.

The crown jewel penthouse is a combination of the two duplex penthouse in the 15-story development, answering the demand from rich buyers who seek to build a “triangle” of luxe residences in multiple cities that that owners and their families can bounce between.

With 30 total residences and prices beginning at $3.9 million, developers expect a sell-out value of $450 million for the boutique project. Since inventory of exclusive properties such as the Ritz Carlton Residences South Beach is so low, the project is anticipated to sell out fast. Another example of an uber-exclusive project is The Perigon Miami Beach, where buyers have been known to claim multiple residences with the idea to decide which to reside in at a later date.

While it may sound risky to laymen, this demand is relatively normal for the savvy buyers of Manhattan’s most elite where Ken Griffin recently broke a record with a $238 million penthouse purchase. It is not uncommon for investment juggernauts such as Mr. Griffin to buy now and decide later.

“Miami is not just a tourist economy anymore,” co-developer Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos told Bloomberg. “We now have so many hedge fund, venture capital and real estate workers who live here.”

The Ritz-Carlton Residences South Beach is expected to be completed at in the Spring of 2027.
