Treasured Island

Privé at Island Estates promises private island luxury

By Leslie J. Kraft

For those who love the idea of living on an island but don’t want to be too remote, Privé at Island Estates is a tempting new option. The community will be anchored in the waters of the Aventura Intracoastal on what developers say is the last buildable 8-acre island in South Florida, Privé Island.

Privé at Island Estates will comprise two, 16-story luxury towers, each with 80 flow-through units ranging from 2,585 square feet to 9,000 square feet. Prices start at $2.15 million for the exclusive project, which is being developed by BH3 and Gary Cohen. Privé’s architect is Sieger Suarez and the project’s interior designer is Interiors by Steven G.

The average unit is 3,400 square feet. All residences will feature private elevator entries, flow-through floor plans with 10-foot glass from floor to ceiling, spacious 10-foot deep balconies, expansive east-west water views, European kitchens and bathrooms, outdoor summer kitchens and service suites.

Residents will reach the island via a private bridge and a road that brings them past an attended gatehouse and into 70,000 square feet of public space. This includes a private beach, marina – plus a private jetty for guest boat landing and fishing, a beach club, lap pool and whirlpool, a roving and permanent poolside café with in-home service and catering, lighted tennis court, nature trail, jogging trail, children’s playground and pet grooming area. There also will be a social room with billiards, a private dining room with catering kitchen, a library, a business center, outdoor dining spaces, a wine room and a cigar lounge.

Each tower will have its own two-story, 10,000-square-foot waterfront fitness center with a state-of-the-art spa, steam and men’s and women’s sauna rooms, a toddler playroom and separate service quarters. Other services include valet, concierge and 24-hour roving and stationary security.

Sales at the property have exceeded $300 million, developers say, including $50 million in penthouse units. The property is designed to appeal to large families seeking privacy or a second home, yachting aficionados, ultra-high-net-worth individuals seeking resort-style living, and young, trendy fashion and shopping enthusiasts.

The 360-degree water views from anywhere on the property, along with the privacy created by the surrounding waters likely will be enough to attract any buyer who can pay the price tag. Privé at Island Estates (mypriveisland.com) is scheduled for completion by next summer.

His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico.
