Turnberry Ocean Club Residences has officially broken ground in Sunny Isles Beach. Construction was originally planned to begin in the spring of 2016, but a slow in sales has caused delays. The building will break ground at just 40% sold. Turnberry Ocean Club Residences is being developed by Beach Club Acquisitions LLC, an affiliate of Turnberry Associates led by Donald Soffer, Jeffrey Soffer, and Jackie Soffer. The building will be designed by Carlos Zapata and Robert Swedroe. It had originally been reported that 2/3's of the early buyers were from South America and Europe as well as a completion date of 2018.
Turnberry Ocean Club will be a 649-foot tall tower and residential complex consisting of 154 units at 54 stories. The units range from 2,900 SF to over 10,645 SF. Pricing ranges from $3.9 to $35 million with the higher-end of the scale consists of duplexes that come complete with their own swimming pools, starting at $19.5 million. The building will feature first class amenities including Sunrise and Sunset Infinity-Edge pools, indoor and outdoor fitness centers, a pet retreat, pool bar, salon, restaurants and cocktail lounge. The pools are rooftop to allow for breathtaking views of Sunny Isles to be enjoyed by all residents. The building also features a Sky Club from floors 30 to 32. Situated 300 feet above sea level, the $100 million Sky Club will be a first-of-its-kind offering indoor and outdoor fitness centers, fine dinging, a sunset lounge, hydrotherapy, cabanas with ocean views, a salon, "sky theater" and a "pet retreat." The developers have targeted this building at younger buyers who are looking for a residency rather than older retirees from the Northeast. “At Turnberry, perfection is a point of pride and unless we are proud of it, we will not build it. Our goal was to set the bar really high when it comes to living in a residential development. We wanted to offer our residents with a luxury lifestyle and a place to live unlike any other," said Jeffrey Soffer of Turnberry Associates at the groundbreaking ceremony.
