In an era where personal expression takes center stage, elegant living transcends mere décor, empowering curated spaces with a sense of individuality and style, ELLE, the world’s leading fashion and global lifestyle media brand, is celebrating this notion by further expanding its influential footprint beyond the pages with its first ever residential tower – ELLE Residences Miami. Behind this visionary project are Vertical Developments and Urban Network Capital Group (UNCG), heralding a one-of-a-kind product that unites fashion and real estate, marking a pivotal moment in ELLE’s storied history, as part of a licensing agreement with Lagardère News, an entity of the France-based Lagardère Group.

The iconic development promises a lifestyle brimming with joie de vivre (“joy of living”), mirroring the magazine’s chic aesthetic and trendsetting influence at the water’s edge of Miami’s transformative Edgewater neighborhood. Rising 25 stories, a collection of 180 residences will be delivered turnkey in the most distinct form that embodies ELLE’s Parisian roots. In collaboration with ELLE, The One Atelier, the talent behind real estate projects with Dolce&Gabbana, Fendi Casa and Karl Lagerfeld, will lead interiors to reflect the daring, innovative and inspirational design seen in the pages of ELLE DECOR, emulating its philosophy of creating spaces for life’s moments, combining a relaxed, carefree spirit and global consciousness with the elegance of the modern, contemporary dwelling. Arquinaut’s Gregory Martínez de Riquelme and Roberto Saija, experts who specialize in real estate collaborations with the most influential names around the globe, guided the brand through this skillful coalescence of ELLE and ELLE DECOR’s DNA with Miami’s vibrant spirit to create ELLE Residences Miami.

Seamlessly combining high-touch service and resort-style amenities with the warmth of home, flexible rental capabilities will be offered, granting owners the freedom to make their residences available for short-term use. Priced from the $525,000s, floor plans range from 450 to 845 square feet with one or two bedrooms. A collection of penthouses is also offered. ELLE Residences Miami will be exclusively represented by Fortune Development Sales.


“This groundbreaking residential project will debut a new legacy for ELLE, one of which we are proud to share in the next chapter of this influential brand,” said Fernando de Nuñez y Lugones, CEO of Vertical Developments. “Our aspiration is not just to build a tower but create an ownership experience that amplifies modernity with the timeless sophistication of ELLE’s nearly 80-year history.”

“Combining the city’s distinctive cultural diversity and dynamism with the brand’s eclectic, spirited ethos and contemporary, Parisian allure, ELLE Residences Miami will truly be one of a kind,” said Robert Thorne, CEO of Urban Network Capital Group. “We are devoted to bringing entirely new and fresh products to every market we set our sights on, and as ELLE’s very first residential development, we are thrilled to introduce this concept not only to Miami but to the world.”

Two expansive floors are dedicated to amenities where beauty abounds. Wellness enthusiasts will enjoy a high-tech gym, outdoor fitness lawn and meditation garden while a luxurious spa will boast steam, sauna, and cold plunge. Dwellers will be encouraged to come together at the gourmet summer kitchen, cozy up at the fire pit or screen a film at the outdoor movie theater. Lush landscape will surround the French Riviera-inspired sundeck with a resort pool and private cabanas. Crowning the tower, a rooftop pool offers arresting panoramic views from sunrise to sunset and a stylish resident-only lounge features an entertainment salon and a listening bar. Uniting highly thoughtful spaces with a striking façade, architecture was led by Behar Font & Partners.

“ELLE’s long standing brand success stems from our pursuit of innovation, and we take pride in continuing to challenge the status quo as ELLE enters a new era with residences,” said Constance Benqué, CEO of ELLE International and Lagardère News. “We are thrilled to introduce ELLE Residences Miami alongside esteemed partners Vertical Developments and Urban Network Capital Group. This project will represent a groundbreaking concept, offering captivating gateways for owners and residents to experience condo living through a fresh lens and the visionary perspective of ELLE.”

ELLE’s history of placemaking and innovation is seen through their expansion into lifestyle experiences and services. This includes ELLE branded cafés, beauty salons and spas around the world, as well as ELLE Hospitality’s flagship Maison ELLE Hotel in Paris and a second location recently opened in Amsterdam.
