What is life like in the Residences by Armani/Casa? Here’s the first look inside

What does $6.96 million at Residences by Armani/Casa get you? Take a look for yourself.

Co-developers Related Group and Dezer Development have released new photos of the building’s lobby area and a 4,000-square-foot unit at the 18975 Collins Ave. condo tower. The four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath unit was designed by the Miami-based interior design firm Artefacto in collaboration with Marisol Pinto.

By Armani / Casa standards, this unit is mid-sized. Apartments range from 2,700 to 6,000 square feet and are priced from $2.9 to $17 million.

The 56-story building in Sunny Isles is home to 308 units. Some 274 units — about 89% — have closed since December.

The building includes 35,000-square-feet of amenity space. Residents have access to a movie theater, wine cellar, children’s playroom, yoga studio and spa.
