Thursday marked the much anticpated opening of  the newest St Regis hotel and condominiums.  There are 36 Condo-Hotels Residences, 268 Condominiums Residences, 183 Hotels Suites, and 24 St-Regis Club Residences and this propertt marks the 28th St Regis proporty.  With its prime location, rising up from the ground at 9307 Collins Ave, The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort is well on its way to reaching icon status much like the luxury accommodations of its competitors the Delano and W South Beach. The $1 billion development took 6 years of planning, and construction.

 The resort, designed by firm Yabu Pushelberg, spared no expense in its decadent interior design. Antique mirrors, rare marble facades and breath taking views make this haute hotel a one of a kind property. The St. Regis is also the new home to the first ever restaurant by renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, J & G Grill. Boasting 243 guest rooms and two fully residential towers, the hotel is set to make its mark on the shopping destination of Bal Harbour, converting Bal Harbour into an international playground in itself.
