1 Hotel and Homes is a modern condo-hotel stretching along the beautiful beachfront. The development was completed in 2015 by LeFrak and Starwood Capital in collaboration with Kobi Karp and architects from HKK Inc., who took credit for its luxurious and curious design. 1 Hotel and Homes accommodates both hotel rooms and 156 private condos over 23 stories of the building. The size of the condos varies from one-bedroom units with an area of 866 square feet to 3,278 square feet four-bedroom rooftop penthouses. Private apartments have a private entrance attended by a concierge, and boast custom kitchens designed by Debora Aguiar which feature modern appliances by Sub-Zero and Bosch and fixtures by Grohe, a smart climate control system, porcelain floors by Portobello, and expansive private balconies revealing scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the city skyline. In addition, the condo hotel is pending approval for the LEED certification, an independent third-party verification reaffirming that a building, home, or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health.
1 Hotel and Homes offers its residents an incomparable range of onsite amenities including four swimming pools, one of which is located on a rooftop, a 14,000 square foot fitness center and spa, a fine restaurant with organic food, a bar, and a poolside cafe (all of which boast significant concepts from Tom Colicchio, a famous New York-based chef), round-the-clock security, valet parking, concierge services, and many other amenities.
Regarding the nearby features, residents can find numerous restaurants, retail stores, and cultural centers, as 1 Hotel and Homes is located in the center of South Beach.
