While many of the properties in the Douglas Elliman Development Marketing portfolio boast luxurious assortments of amenities, one attribute in particular might be said to stand above the rest: magnificent views. Below are seven new developments from Midtown Manhattan to Miami Beach that offer residents truly new perspectives on luxury living.
A gracefully tapered, 1,050-foot-high tower designed by acclaimed architect Jean Nouvel, 53 West 53 has been called “the most architecturally significant addition to the Manhattan skyline in recent years” by architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff. Featuring spacious, light-filled interior spaces designed by Thierry Despont, the generously scaled and proportioned condominium residences offer panoramic city views through floor-to-ceiling windows. With an extensive suite of amenities and the unique distinction of being integrated into The Museum of Modern Art’s Midtown campus, 53 West 53 embodies a 21st century vision of gracious urban living.
A dramatic and shimmering tower designed by Handel Architects in the heart of NYC’s NoMad neighborhood, Madison House lets residents feel as if they are floating above the city. Starting at an elevation of 150 feet, the residences feature 11-foot ceilings that emphasize the epic scale of the vista, at least one corner exposure (if not two or more) and nary a column in sight. With each floor offering its own extraordinary sightlines, Madison House provides a new perspective on Manhattan, from previously unavailable views of the historic buildings around the park to clear vistas down to the southern tip of the island.
Designed by the award-winning SHoP Architects, with cascading setbacks, soaring columns and geometric shapes inspired by its neighbor, the historic Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn, The Brooklyn Tower rivals the scale, elegance and majesty of Manhattan’s skyscrapers across the river. Each residence offers a unique vantage point to take in views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines, New York Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean.
Located in a peaceful island enclave in the heart of Miami, La Maré Residences Bay Harbor Islands is an exclusive collection of boutique buildings featuring spacious, light-filled modern living spaces, luxurious amenities and a sense of community in a waterfront park setting.

An exquisite private enclave occupying 150 acres along South Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway, The Residences at Shell Bay by Auberge Resorts Collection is a sanctuary of tranquil and captivating refinement. Crowned by a rooftop pool, the twenty-story condominium tower houses AvroKO-designed living spaces that feature floor-to-ceiling windows, private wraparound terraces and sweeping views of the exclusive Greg Norman championship golf course.
Soaring above the Intracoastal Waterway, Olara is a waterfront oasis in Florida’s West Palm Beach. Housed in a collection of 26-story buildings designed by the award-winning firm Arquitectonica, the residences celebrate seamless indoor-outdoor living, with floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto deep terraces and offer endless vistas of the Intercoastal, Palm Beach and the Atlantic Ocean.
Designed by award-winning architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica, with interiors by acclaimed Studio Munge, EDITION Residences, Miami Edgewater is a stunning glass prism, boldly situated on 800 linear feet of scenic bayfront. The Residences offer open-plan living, with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame sweeping views of Biscayne Bay and expansive terraces that open up arresting vistas of the bay islands, Miami Beach skyline and Atlantic Ocean beyond.
