Ross’s Comments – What you Need to Know about L’Atelier
The concept and design of L’Atelier is to create an “artful” lifestyle that brings together light, space, ocean and beach living into a luxury flow through (ocean to city) residence in an exclusive and boutique building.
The developer of this project has put together an amazing team, including architect Luis Revuelta, interior designer Holly Hunt, and landscape architect Enzo Enea, to complete the development.
With only 20 residences, each floor plate either consists of two residences, each 2,300 square feet (3 bedroom), or a full floor 4,600 square foot (4 bedroom) residence.
The developer will merge the historic facade of the former Golden Sands hotel with the new tower that will sit on the east side of the parcel.
There are a number of attractive design elements in the residences, however, the immense depth (up to 22 feet) and width of the terraces, combined with the floor to glass windows of the living area and master suite, is what really stands out in this project.
The six bedroom, 8,000 SF penthouse that will occupy the 17th and 18th floors is on the market for $33 million and features its own 40 foot infinity pool and floating glass staircase.

Miami Beach started out as a coconut plantation amid a jungle of mangroves when two entrepreneurs Henry and Charles Lum purchased 160 acres of what is now South Beach. In the year 1912, the Lummus brothers founded the Ocean Beach Realty Company in Miami Beach as they planned to build an oceanfront city of modest homes. The following years saw rapid development on Miami Beach with the “longest wagon bridge in the world” – the Collins Bridge (now the Venetian Causeway) being constructed and the opening of various restaurants and casinos on the oceanfront, which included the infamous Joe’s Stone Crab. The first hotel in Miami Beach, the W. J. Brown Hotel, opened its doors to customers in 1914 and with it Miami Beach arrived on the traveling scene in the United States. The stage was set for the story of Miami Beach to begin.
During the 1920′s, Miami Beach flourished as a playground for multi-millionaires like Harvey Firestone, Albert Champion, and J.C. Penny. Hollywood celebrities soon discovered Miami Beach and very quickly it became a resort and entertainment destination to rival Palm Springs and Las Vegas. In the mid-1930′s, bold new architectural forms made their appearance and the Miami Beach building boom exploded during Art Deco’s second phase. Today, Miami Beach retains a rich and uniform appearance with many buildings preserved as excellent examples of Art Deco, Streamline Moderne, Nautical Moderne and Tropical Deco designs. Following the 1930′s and 1940′s, Miami Beach entered a golden era and was considered America’s Riviera.
In the 1996, the city of Miami Beach celebrated one hundred years of existence as an independent, self-sustaining tropical paradise. During its existence, the city has seen two world wars, the elegance and extravagance of the nations golden age – the 1920′s, and the tragedy of the Great Economic Depression. Places such as the Art Deco National Historic District, Espanola Way and Lincoln Road are just a few reminders of its rich and varied heritage. Miami Beach is famous for its wide sandy beaches, warm tropical water, year round sunshine, and non-stop action. Whether you are a Miami native playing in your city’s backyard, a snowbird, or a sun-seeking adventurer, Miami Beach is guaranteed to stimulate you.
