First Luxury Boutique Condo Launches in Shops at Merrick Park, Coral Gables.

Laguna HouseCoral Gables has long been recognized as Miami’s most desirable city with an exceptional quality of life. Paying homage to the timeless character that has defined this community for 90 years, while introducing a fresh interpretation of fashionable urban living, Roger Development Group announced the launch of Laguna House – the only ultra-luxury boutique residences to be situated within the Shops at Merrick Park in Coral Gables, Fla.

Located at 4220 Laguna Street, just steps away from some of the world’s finest brands and directly neighboring Neiman Marcus, Laguna House will present an intimate setting of just 13 residences within a 10-story, low-rise tower. Residents will be afforded a true sense of privacy, similar to that of a home, yet with the utmost convenience of being immersed in a walkable fashion epicenter. Designed with only one-to-two expansive condominiums per level, including one penthouse spanning the entire 10th floor, Laguna House will feature the largest units in the area, with floor plans ranging from 3,000 to 6,250 square feet – ideal for those looking to transition from a large home without sacrificing space.

“We are pleased to introduce this exceptional luxury product in Merrick Park,” said Oscar Roger, President and CEO of Roger Development Group. “In today’s market, real luxury is limited. With Laguna House’s handful of units, few neighbors and unique location in Coral Gables, it is the exclusive alternative to owning an estate or living in a large Miami skyscraper. Yet even in its boutique setting, homeowners will experience the daily metropolitan conveniences of enjoying dinner out or shopping on a whim, all just a stroll away. “

In keeping with the timeless Mediterranean architecture synonymous with “The City Beautiful,” the design palette of Laguna House, conceptualized by Boca Raton’s PGAL Architects, harmoniously blends the classic elegance of its surroundings with the contemporary style of its interiors. Oversized great rooms and open concept gourmet kitchens with Italian cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a built in wine cooler will be ideal for stylish entertaining. All bathrooms will offer natural lighting with large window vistas, and a spa-inspired master bath featuring imported European stone throughout and a freestanding deep soaking tub.

Boasting superb finishes, each of Laguna House’s residences will be set amidst stunning views of Shops at Merrick Park and its green spaces, with the upper floors overlooking Coral Gables’ lush treetops and views of Biscayne Bay and the downtown Miami skyline.

Laguna House will be complete with deluxe amenities and the perks of Merrick Park. Residents can enjoy an outdoor pool and sundeck, private dual-entry elevator that opens in a foyer or directly in the unit, two parking spaces per residence, and a one-year membership to the adjacent Equinox Fitness. Indulging in the area’s bustling retail scene will also be commonplace, with more than 100 boutiques and restaurants at your doorstep, including Gucci, Burberry, Diane Von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo, Nordstrom, William Sonoma, and more. The property will additionally feature 3,565 square feet of retail on the ground floor with additional shopping and dining options.

“Each detail of Laguna House – from its strategic placement next to Merrick Park, to its home-like appeal – were meticulously crafted to satisfy the social lifestyle needs of today’s sophisticated and modern homeowner,” concluded Roger. “We look forward to providing our residents the sense of community they value.”

Priced from $1.5 million, Laguna House launched sales in December 2015 and is slated to break ground early 2016.
