Condos with a Luxe Perk: Residents-Only Dining

We’ve written about the lavish amenity offerings that have changed luxury real estate in a landscape where high-end inventory is up and competition among new developments is tough. Some of the most exclusive buildings offer residents a unique experience, one that will cost you even more than a SoHo House membership since admission will require the purchase of a unit in the building…residents-only dining.

Amenities are an extension of the residents’ homes, and restaurants take this to a new level with sophisticated private dining by top chefs only available to residents and their guests. These types of buyers look for convenience, but do not want to sacrifice quality to achieve that. These restaurants allow busy people with demanding careers to come home and not worry about cooking, hosting business lunches, or catering a dinner party.

432 Park Avenue


432 Park Avenue made a name for itself as the tallest residential building in the Western hemisphere as well as for its tall prices for units in the building. The building amenity package is unrivaled, with the exclusive restaurant occupying the entire 12th floor. The restaurant is headed by Michelin-starred chef, Shaun Hergatt. In addition to the interior dining room, the space also has a 5,000 square foot terrace overlooking 57th Street which can be reserved for private events. If you aren’t in the mood to eat in the restaurant on the 12th floor, in-residence dining is also available.

15 Central Park West


15 Central Park West made a splash among the world’s elite as it quickly became an “it” address recognized across the globe upon completion. It set the bar high in terms of luxury offerings, including a private restaurant for residents and their guests. The restaurant at 15 CPW debuted before that of 432 Park Avenue. The building describes the dining offering as a “private dining service with an in-house chef provides full catering for Fifteen Central Park West residents desiring anything from a four-course custom menu for 80 guests to an at-home romantic dinner for two.”  The restaurant is known to host special meals year-round including women’s lunches with speakers covering varying topics and a special brunch on Mother’s Day each year.

Jade Signature


The trend of resident-only dining is not confined to New York. One of the latest luxury high-rise to hit the shores of Sunny Isles Beach, just north of Miami, has embraced the exclusive trend as well. Jade Signature, designed by famed architects Herzog & De Meuron, offers a truly luxurious amenities package which allows residents to experience resort-style living on the shores of South Florida. The Jade Signature Beach Bar & Grill so residents can dine pool and beach side without having to head back their residences. The experience is similar to that of many beachfront hotels.

6 Condos Designed by Luxury Brands in New York & Miami

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.

Escape the Cold: The Best of Miami Real Estate

For those in the Northeast East and Midwest, winter can be quite brutal and feel seemingly longer than any other season of the year. The winter season thus far has been brutally cold in New York City, yet those looking for an escape only have a 2.5-hour plane ride to be transported to sun and sand.

Miami is often times referred to as the 6th borough of New York City given the quick and easy plane ride. Some of the hottest developments are under construction or nearing completion in South Florida. Similar to New York, some of the biggest names in architect and design are backing these new projects in Miami.

Looking at the Miami luxury market, we see some similar themes to what we have previously shared for our outlook for the Manhattan luxury market. One of those is opportunity as a result of uncertainty. There is no doubt that cranes have been dotting the South Florida skyline from Sunny Isles to Brickell. Some of these projects have foreign investment, with a large proportion in Miami being from South America, which has caused concern for some as it relates to foreign exchange rates and the ability of those invested to maintain their stake and close. We do not feel overly concerned about this, but rather look at the opportunity of a Buyer’s Market that has resulted in South Florida and the opportunity to purchase some of the best product the area has seen at the best prices.

The Victoria Shtainer Team is pleased to market 3 of the most notable new developments in the Miami area – The Ritz Carlton Residences Sunny Isles, Muse Sunny Isles, and Echo Brickell.
