“Life is about balance and in that, the creation of a luxury lifestyle requires attention to every detail, no matter how small, and the never-ending quest for beauty and functionality,” says Shahab Karmely, Principal of KAR Properties. “I try to create a unique experience that differentiates our projects from other options available.” He is currently developing One River Point, an oasis offering intimacy and a superlative range of leisure, entertainment and business facilities associated with the world’s leading resorts. “Just as star architect Rafael Viñoly redefined Manhattan luxury living with 432 Park, he is now recasting Miami sophistication away from its sandy beaches to its river shores,” continues Karmely. “Nestled within Downtown Miami’s only private gated park, One River Point’s graceful towers are connected by a floating glass skybridge encompassing a private Sky Club by Adrian Zecha. It’s the ultimate address for those seeking the essence of sophistication.”; OneRiverPoint.com.
