5 Hotel and Car Brands That Are Leading on Luxury Multifamily

By Published On: September 6, 20225.5 min read

When it comes to luxury condominiums, hotel and car brands are leading the way. No longer are luxury towers their own entities. A much louder — and stronger — method of branding a residency is for it to be an arm of an already-existing and much larger brand that is synonymous with top notch service and luxury amenities. With more luxury towers in the works globally, five-star hotel brands like the Mandarin Oriental are opening their own towers, as is the Four Seasons and automotive brand Aston Martin.

Here are five luxury towers that are changing the game with a commitment to sustainability, community gathering spaces and more.

The five-star hotel brand is slated to open their Residences at Mandarin Oriental Grand Cayman, which broke ground this summer, in 2025. It’ll be home to a hotel and 89 sprawling residencies. Paris-based architecture and interior design firm AW2 is behind the residences here.

As part of the amenities, the hotel’s facilities will include the Spa at Mandarin Oriental, the Wellness Center, lagoon pools, cabana and lounge service, and five restaurants that will be accessible to residence owners and hotel guests. These residences start in the range of $6 million, and they recently launched their sales.

According to Reda Amalou, the lead architect behind the project, the project is inspired by the landscape of St. James Point. This building is the first to be developed in this part of the region, and utilizes locally-sourced materials, including tropical hardwood. AW2 always has a sustainable approach, and here it’s catered to show the luxurious amenities that high-net-worth clients are asking for right now.

The complex is home to 1,132 residences with 75% of units priced at affordable rates and senior housing. The building has shared amenities, a community facility and retail space.

We might know this British automotive brand for appearing in James Bond movies, but now, they’ve gotten into designing towers, as part of the latest crop of car brands creating luxury towers. Aston Martin Residences, a G&G luxury residential development, is a standout along the downtown Miami skyline in Biscayne Bay.

The 66-storey tower features luxury residences from $750,000 to upwards of $50 million. Aston Martin’s design team are designing the amenity spaces throughout the building, led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman.

Set in the heart of Beverly Hills, the hotel brand Rosewood Residences Beverly Hills is designed by architect Thomas Juul-Hansen, who is known for his ultra-luxe residential developments, as well as his custom-created residences.

Each property ranges from 3,000 to over 7,000 square feet.

Almost half of the residences have their own private swimming pools.

Some have fully equipped outdoor kitchens and fire pits for entertaining. As part of the property’s luxury service offerings, their resort-like rooftop will feature a pool, whirlpool spa, fitness center and outdoor relaxation areas.

“As the popularity of standalone branded residences continues to grow, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is thrilled to present this opportunity to enjoy the height of living in the prominent market of Beverly Hills,” said Brad Berry, Vice President of Global Residential Development at Rosewood Hotel Group, in a statement.
