Villa Valencia was recently featured in Forbes article titled “After Miami Buildout, Developers Converging On Coral Gables”
From the article:
To get a feel for the splendor, let’s zero in for a close-up view on one of the newest and most exclusive projects in town. Villa Valencia, from local developer Location Ventures, the architect of record Hamed Rodriguez Architects, is a 13-story-tall collection of 39 ultra-luxury condominium residences at 515 Valencia Avenue. It is expected to deliver in 2021, with residences priced starting at $1.65 million. Commanding some of the region’s highest price points, Villa Valencia launched sales earlier this year.
Its most distinctive attribute is its estate-sized residences, which range in size from three to six bedrooms and offer expansive, open floor plans, deep, wide terraces, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, designer vanities and custom closets, customized home technology systems, hurricane-resistant, energy-efficient windows, and indoor-outdoor living rooms. The elegant fixtures and finishes of the homes include eight-foot European doors with concealed hinges, 10-foot ceilings, porcelain or stone floors, custom European cabinetry and custom closets featuring European millwork.
Villa Valencia’s sumptuous amenity package leaves residents wanting for little. Among the creature comforts are a hammock garden set amid lush landscaping, a golf simulator, 78-foot long resort-style pool with a lap lane and waterfall, spacious sunbeds, two summer kitchens for outdoor dining, a spa program with Hammam, his-and-hers saunas, hydrotherapy plunge pool, gym and fitness area, tea room, movie theater, entertainment room with billiards and valet parking.
It’s likely all a bit more lavish than even the luxury-minded George Merrick ever envisioned. But who’s to say Coral Gables’ founder wouldn’t have welcomed a bit of pampering after a hard’s work sculpting the future City Beautiful?
Situated on the private side of Coral Gables, Villa Valencia features thirty-nine luxury condominium residences that offer a rich city lifestyle with the privacy of the boutique living. The residences at Villa Valencia, each with at least one corner exposure, rise to 13 stories, crowned with two lower penthouse levels and one grand penthouse in the sky.
A sense of place. An air of history. A feeling of belonging. No other residential experience in South Florida provides all of this quite like Villa Valencia. In the heart of Coral Gables – a deeply rooted community of exceptional beauty and wonderful people – a unique lifestyle offering is taking shape.
