T+L Reports: La Prairie Home Companion
What do you get when a contemporary architect, a nightlife guru, and the director of a world-class spa combine forces?A series of skyscraper condos in Miami, Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., and London. Each property will have lofts designed by Chad Oppenheim and a full-service Clinique La Prairie Wellness Center offering signature medi-spa treatments. Owners also get a social perk: instant VIP status, thanks to legendary Miami promoter Michael Capponi, who will ensure that residents are whisked past velvet ropes at each of the respective city's hot spots. The first property scheduled to debut, Ten Museum Park, is a 50-story glass-and-steel tower rising over the coast in downtown Miami. Its 200 condominiums—ranging from one-bedrooms to penthouse duplexes—are selling fast (at press time, only one remained, though many are being flipped by original buyers), even though the development is not set to open until 2006.
