Sun-seeking buyers should check out Trump Las Olas Beach Resort. A boutique hotel condominium in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, this one is surrounded by the city’s finest shops and restaurants. In addition to the marvelous array of five-star goodies one expects from Trump such as daily housekeeping, round-the-clock concierge services—even pet sitting—every one of the fully furnished residences is butler-serviced. Offering studios, 1- and 2-bedroom homes, high-end details and electronics abound. Kitchens boast granite countertops and floors while bathrooms come dressed up in Italian marble. High ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and private outdoor space are also part and parcel of the purchase, as is a state-of-the-art fitness center, a heated pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, lushly landscaped gardens replete with cascading waterfalls and fine dining services from a not-yet-announced world-class restaurant. $500,000 to $3 million. OPEN EARLY 2008.




For those who dream of living the good life above Central Park, consider the new 111 Central Park North. Overlooking the park at 110th Street and Lenox Avenue, all the homes face the park. Two to 4BR units feature high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, white oak hardwood floors, balconies and washer/dryers. Kitchens are complemented with Wenge wood cabinetry topped with white statuary marble and Viking appliances. Bianca di Modica limestone and glass tile adorn the master baths as do fancy fixtures and finishes such as Kohler tea-for-two soaking tubs and custom marble-topped vanities. For outdoor space closer to home, there’s a splendid garden terrace with an adjacent party room and fitness center on the second floor. Other building amenities include 24/7 doorman, a refrigerated storage room, bike room, underground valet parking, and concierge services from Abigail Michaels (at an additional cost). From about $1.5 million. SUMMER 2007.




At the crossroads of fashion and fun, the largest component of the Gansevoort South development on Collins Avenue is the Paradiso condominium. It offers home seekers all the pleasures and amenities of the trendy hotel—including a tri-level beach club with an infinity pool overlooking the ocean, a 40,000SF David Barton Gym + Spa (which will transform into the cool Gansevoort Spa & Lounge come nighttime) and a sprawling, palm tree-fringed rooftop with yet another pool—this one a whopping 110-ft long. From spectacular balconied studios to 3BRs, ranging from 847 to 5,000SF, these residences have plenty of bells and whistles, including Bosch washers and dryers. Granite-topped and marble-floored open kitchens feature Sub-Zero, Bosch, Dacor, and Franke appliances, and tumbled marble master baths boast custom vanities, walk-in showers and Watermark and Toto fixtures. This oceanfront beauty offers commanding residential views of Biscayne Bay or skyline views. EARLY 2007. From $600,000.


“Park and waterfront living are incomparable amenities,” said Richard Cantor of Cantor & Pecorella, who is currently handling the sales for Rutherford Place at Stuyvesant Square Park. “We find that discerning buyers consider their dream homes to be those with insurmountable views.”
