It seems luxury real estate developers will do just about anything to attract buyers. A development in Dubai is selling homes that come with a European passport, and a Miami penthouse for sale is throwing in a $3.2 million Aston Martin to sweeten the deal. But as the luxury real estate landscape continues to evolve, more buyers are seeking curated experiences that extend beyond buildings' amenity suites. That's why several are now offering over-the-top travel-related perks.
Astéras Kings, a boutique development comprised of just 25 residences in a prestigious West Hollywood enclave, wants to make getting in and out of the city a breeze. How? They're providing residents with a complimentary membership to The Private Suite at LAX, a newly-built private terminal. So, residents can leave their homes, enter LAX through a private gate, head to a private terminal, which includes private TSA screening, and relax before a flight in a private waiting area with a bathroom, food service, daybed, and more. When it's time for your flight, you're driven across the tarmac directly to the aircraft.
Palm Beach's first new beachfront development in over a decade, 3550 South Ocean, has upped the ante by offering private jet amenities for residents. The condominium's developer, DDG, has an exclusive relationship with on-demand charter jet service Star Jets International that will give residents access to custom concierge jet services, that includes door-to-door transfers, itinerary planning, selection of jets, onboard catering, and more. There is no separate jet concierge fee.
And if you own at the Four Seasons Private Residences Fort Lauderdale, you'll have access to an exclusive partnership that no other Four Seasons development offers. Residents will receive special access to several partner properties including Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at The Surf Club in Surfside, Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, and Norman's Cay, an exclusive island in the Bahamas. Special courtesies include preference on dining and hotel stays, as well as access to private transportation options between the developments.
