“Château Group develops distinct residential buildings embodying the highest level of architectural design with a refined functionality.”
Nestled along three acres of sand, one of the widest stretches of oceanfront property in South Florida, FENDI-Château Residences settle seamlessly into Surfside’s serene surroundings, mirroring the ocean. The 12-story, wave-like building designed by architecture firm Arquitectonica, is home to 58 expansive flow-through residences offering the highest level of luxury and privacy to its residents. Designed with a vision of offering the ultimate lifestyle experience, FENDI-Château Residences is the first real estate project branded for Fendi worldwide in collaboration with real estate developer Château Group.
Endowed with impeccably styled interiors curated by Fendi, every detail, from the finishes to the furniture, was specially chosen with a sophisticated buyer in mind. Residences boast master suites with his and her master bathrooms, including Italian marble and custom-made fixtures. Chef’s kitchens are outfitted with custom mother-of-pearl Fendi cabinets, warming drawers, Gaggenau appliances, and vertical wine climate cabinets. Penthouses feature panoramic ocean views, private saunas, rooftop sundecks and pools.
Manuel Grosskopf, head of U.S. operations for Château Group says, “Fendi represents the highest level of elegance, innovative style and excellence in the fashion and luxury worlds, making it a perfect expression of the ultimate lifestyle. Fendi and Château Group strive to achieve the same level of quality as evident in the residences which combine function and fashion on a grand scale.”
With more than three decades of experience in high-end residential, commercial and mixed-use real estate projects in South America, Château Group has participated in several major real estate endeavors over the last several years, including the development of 1.6 million square feet distributed in the two most emblematic towers in Buenos Aires, Argentina: Château Libertador and Château Puerto Madero. The world-renowned development company has also positioned itself as a high-end residential market leader in Punta del Este, Uruguay through the development of Le Jardin Residences, Beverly Tower, Coral Tower and Millenium Tower. Château Group has now set its sights on South Florida for its first round of major U.S. projects. Argentine-born developer Manuel Grosskopf and his father Sergio Grosskopf have been helping finance major real estate developments from Hallandale Beach to Downtown Miami.
“The city of Miami has gone through an amazing transformation over the last decade. From pristine beaches and first class restaurants to the most diverse cultural scene, Miami has it all,” said Grosskopf. “The city is now home to many world renowned events, such as Art Basel, the Miami Boat Show, the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, the opportunities are endless. World-class accommodations, exciting nightlife, fine dining, great shopping, arts and culture are now signature Miami features.”
