Where is Arte? Inside Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's $39,900-a-month luxury home in Miami Surfside area
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have signed a deal to lease a large, unfurnished unit in the luxury Arte condo complex for at least a year that is probably costing them $39,900 a month
After creating a stir about not letting secret service agents use their half a dozen bathrooms in their rented Washington DC home Kalorama neighborhood, where will Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner move next?
Instead of New York, they are heading to Miami, Florida. They will be renting again while their permanent home is built on Indian Creek Island, the high-security private island known as the "Billionaire Bunker". They purchased a two-acre plot on the island for $31.8 million late last month from singer Julio Iglesias.
Their temporary rented home is one of the 16 "oceanfront residences" in the Arte building in Miami's exclusive Surfside neighborhood. Their new residence is only a five-minute drive from Indian Creek Island and is one of the reasons why Ivanka and Kushner have chosen Arte. The other reason is one of Arte's developers is Alex Sapir, whose organization teamed up with Donald Trump's firm to build the Trump Soho condo-hotel in New York City in 2008. According to the condo complex website, Arte "embraces its privileged setting in Surfside, an exclusive seaside enclave celebrated for its historic architecture and wide, tranquil beaches".
All about Arte condo complex in Surfside Miami
Arte, the pyramid-shaped complex overlooking the Atlantic, was designed by Italian architect Antonio Citterio in 2019 -- his first-ever project in the States. According to the website, Arte is a "one-of-a-kind collection of 16 exquisitely finished oceanfront residences". The 12-story building's units range between 3,150 to 7,550 square feet with between three and five bedrooms.
The condo complex itself features a "75-foot indoor swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool, a rooftop tennis court, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, sauna, and steam room and a tranquil meditation pond". There is also a children's playroom, an out-of-home entertaining space with a catering kitchen and private temperature-controlled parking spaces.
Which unit will Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner be renting?
Ivanka and Kushner have signed a deal to lease a large, unfurnished unit for at least a year. Only three of Arte's units appear to be available for rent: an unfurnished four-bedroom unit for $39,900 a month, a furnished three-bedroom for $40,000, and a furnished four-bedroom unit for $60,000 a month. Buying a condo is more expensive -- one of Arte's penthouses just sold for $33 million, and another is listed for $22 million.
The couple's apparent relocation to Florida comes as several other Trump family members are said to be heading to the Sunshine State. The Surfside neighborhood is a beachside town just north of Miami Beach that's home to fewer than 6,000 people.
What do the home units look like inside?
Very fancy to say the least. Each unit at Arte Surfside features a wrap-around terrace with views of the Atlantic Ocean. The units are outfitted with Roman travertine ceilings, European white oak floors, Poliform cabinetry, Italian marble countertops, Gaggenau appliances and of course the expansive terraces. According to the condo's publicity website, every residence "enjoys spectacular ocean views from private terraces that celebrate outdoor living in a warm, Mediterranean style".
Each condo unit also has direct elevator entry with digital fingerprint recognition and Ivanka and Kushner will be bringing in their own security detail too, according to reports. Hopefully, the complex will have some space for staff toilets too!
