Major luxury brands from around the world are leaving their market (and branding) on the luxury real estate market. There is a growing number of projects where major designers are doing interiors of luxury buildings, especially in Miami.
These collaborations increase the appeal and attract buyers in a competitive new development market where prospective buyers have many projects from which to choose. Both sides stand to benefit from bringing on a global luxury brand as the development gets increased publicity because of the collaboration and the luxury brand gets to reach a potentially new audience that may not have previously been immersed in the brand.
In today's market a brand is everything. Young, wealthy buyers especially love luxury brands, and many of these collaborations are familiar in that they most like have pieces from them in their home already. These powerful brands give the building an identity immediately rather than the building trying to have to establish itself as brand on its own.
