In 2013 U.S. sales of new homes climbed to the highest level in five years and analysts expect further gains in 2014. Developers are banking on those projections; last week-in one single day-three new projects broke ground in Miami. One thing is for sure, in 2014 our spectacular skyline will continue to be reshaped by growth, and our city’s international appeal will continue to be magnified.

Versace Mansion Sold at Auction

September 18th, 2013 Written By Carol Pawley

Casa Casuarina - Gianni Versace’s Miami Mansion

The famous Versace mansion sold yesterday at auction for $41.5 million. The buyer was the Nakash family of Jordache jeans. They plan to convert the Mediterranean-style mansion into a hotel using the Versace name.Joe Nakash, the chairmain of Jordache Enterprises, said ” We bought history. We paid $41.5 million for it and it’s going to stay as it is.” They will approach the Versace family about licensing the name

The villa was originally listed for $125 million but went on the auction block after lenders foreclosed on owner Peter Loftin. The closed-door auction had only three bidders at the auction. Donald Trump, who is redeveloping an 800-acre golf course in Doral; Palm Beach Polo and Country Club owner Glenn Straub; and VM South Beach, owned by the Nakash family of Jordache jeans fame. The requirements of the auctioneer, Miami-based Fisher Auction Co., were a $3 million deposit placed in escrow and proof of at least $40 million in liquid assets.

The house was sold with the furnishings, stain glass and mosaic arranged in the eccentric, baroque style of Versace. Features include a 24-karat gold-lined swimming pool.
