Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PressExposure) July 27, 2015 -- It may just be a title-holder for the biggest outdoor penthouse living space in North America. At the Oceana Bal Harbour, real estate developer and philanthropist Eduardo Costantini, is building a spectacular 28th floor duplex penthouse, complimented with what could be the country's largest outdoor terrace - with 9,950 square feet of open design space.
What does a 9,950 ft. terrace look like? To put that into perspective, it's roughly the size of 3 and half tennis courts. With such a huge canvas, your expansive outdoor patio can conform to almost any landscaping and outdoor living concept your imagination can conceive. Besides having your private rooftop infinity pool and hot tub, you'll have plenty of room to host elegant cocktail parties and fundraising events with hundreds of your closest friends and business associates, or create a tropical botanical oasis to immerse yourself and your family within.
At $28,581,000, you will own 19,321 ft. of luxuriously appointed living space, panoramic unobstructed views of the North, East and West skyline - and a fractional ownership of 2 Jeff Koons sculptures, "Ballerina" and "Pluto and Proserpina," which will be prominently displayed on the property. $14 million was invested in 2012 to purchase these 2 enormous sculptures. Mr. Koons artwork holds a world record for highest auction price for a work of art by a living artist.
Mr. Costantini set aside another $15,000,000 that will go to at least 10 additional pieces of high-end artwork for the residents to enjoy, watch and appreciate.
Oceana Bal Harbour is under construction on what was the very last vacant 5.5 acre parcel of land in Bal Harbour with 400 feet of pristine beachfront. It's expected to be completed in the last quarter of 2016. Only 240 units will be built, each appointed with imported exotic stone kitchen countertops, custom designed Dada cabinetry, a Gaggenau appliance center including a double oven, two-zone gourmet wine cellar, Dornbracht faucets, Piero Lissoni's custom designed cabinetry, and a European wet bathroom design with designer fixtures and accessories. Apart from having an oversized vessel soaking tub, stone countertops from Italy, teak shower floors and glass tiles, the penthouse will have at least 4 parking spaces and a private landing.
Among the building features will be a private poolside restaurant, movie theater, cabanas, 2 tennis courts and an exclusive spa to pamper the residents of Oceana Bal Harbour with the luxury services they deserve, and expect.
Mr. Costantini's passion for modern and contemporary art is conveyed in each of his real estate developments, and demonstrated by his ownership of one of the largest Latin American art collections in the world. He stated, "If a masterpiece appears, then I buy. It's the piece itself who commands the decision and as a real estate developer its the same, what drives me is the quality of the site"
Buyers who are expanding their penthouse portfolios and seeking out one-of-a-kind luxury properties need not look any further, because in Bal Harbour Florida - The Oceana penthouse will exceed your expectations.
