Four Seasons Surfside

If you have been paying attention to Andrew Rosen, co-founder and CEO of fashion retailer Theory, you might already know that he sold off his luxurious Miami Beach penthouse at Setai Miami Beach last year for a cool $8.5 million. We can now report that Rosen has officially chosen a new base with his recent purchase of an apartment located in the Four Seasons Residences at the Surf Club in Miami, Florida.

Based on insider information and property records, the fashion guru has paid $5.15 million for unit 909 in the south tower of the Four Seasons Residence. This property serves as a luxury condo and hotel based on a nine-acre area and found at 9191 Collins Avenue in Surfside. Rosen also owns a four-bedroom apartment in Manhattan, along with a residence in Southampton.

Surf Club Four Seasons

The Surf Club is hardly new, even if its latest iteration is. Back in 1959, an advertisement for the club read “Spectacular is the word for The Surf Club.” The Surf Club opened back in 1930, founded by tire tycoon Harvey Firestone. It was a place for celebrity and excitement, a place where prohibition was might as well not have existed.

Moreover, that could have been the end until earlier this year, when the Surf Club opened again as a hotel, private club, and condominiums.

The Surf Club development has numerous amenities which include two restaurants, a private club, a gym, four swimming pools, numerous cabanas, a spa, adult quiet pool, water sports, and oceanside gardens. The property was designed by Pritzker Prize winner Richard Meier, and Kobi Karp.

Fort Partners development includes two residential towers, each 12 stories high. A 77-room hotel is also on the property. The price of units at Surf Club range from $3.7 million all the way up to $31 million with sizes ranging from 1,800 square feet all the way up to a spacious 7,000 square feet.

No specifics are known about Rosen’s particular unit, but marketing materials show that the condos come in blue, white, and moss green and include custom work by French interior designer, Joseph Dirand.

Ex-Husband of Ex-Wife of Phil Collins Puts Sunset Islands Mansion on the Market

Sunset Islands Homes

A luxurious waterfront mansion in Sunset Islands that has been in the middle of a genuinely messy divorce was just placed for sale at a cool $20 million. The divorce proceedings took place between Phil Collin’s ex-wife, Orianne Collins Mejjati Alami, and her ex-husband, Charles Fouad Mejjati Alami.

Messy Divorce Proceedings

Charles Fouad Mejjati Alami was the listed owner of this expansive home with almost 10,000 square feet of space. The mansion is located at 1525 West 24th Street in Miami Beach with a current asking price that averages out to a little over $2,000 a square foot.

It has been reported that Orianne Collins Mejjati Alami is now back together with Phil Collins. She filed for divorce from Charles Fouad Mejjati Alami back in early 2016 with a claim that she owned the home. She further explained that Charles Fouad Mejjati Alami was transferred the title of the beautiful home “through deceit and fraud upon the wife,” according to public court records. The divorced was initially completed in spring of 2017, with an amended final judgment in September.

Most of the court documents related to the messy proceedings are now sealed, but it was reported back in February that Orianne Collins Mejjati Alami was looking to nullify an older settlement agreement made out of court which placed the title for the Sunset Islands home with Charles Fouad Mejjati Alami, to begin with. She explained at the time that she had no memory of signing the property as she was on painkillers prescribed for a painful back operation.

Original Purchase of the Sunset Islands Home

A look at property records shows that in 2014, the mansion’s title was passed over to Charles Fouad Mejjati Alami. He and Orianne Collins Mejjati Alami purchased the property in 2012 for an estimated $8.4 million.

The extraordinary dwelling features seven bedrooms, eight full baths, and two half baths. It was built in 2005 and includes a two-level foyer with double grand staircase, fireplace, gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, breakfast room, maid’s quarters, and family room complete with wet bar. The master bedroom has two full baths along with his and hers closets with a full-length balcony that overlooks the water nearby.

On the nearly 10,000 square feet, there is also a rooftop terrace, two two-car garages, interior courtyard, private gym, home theater, elevator, clubroom, pool, and an exclusive boat dock. Many one of a kind features abounds in and on the property with custom Fendi design and amenities that discerning buyers will appreciate.

Phil Collin’s Property

As for ex-husband Phil Collins, he owns and lives in a property nearby. It is located at 5800 North Bay Road and is the former home of musician Jennifer Lopez. Collins bought the home in June of 2015 for about $33 million. The mansion includes seven bedrooms, eight full baths, three half baths, pool, jacuzzi, and more.
