MIAMI, FL -- As the South Florida housing market increasingly rebounds from the real estate crash of 2007, a pair of high-profile residential developers are partnering to build up to two new condo towers that would feature the Italian fashion design brand of Giorgio Armani on an oceanfront site in the barrier island city of Sunny Isles Beach in Northeast Miami-Dade County.

The proposed project - dubbed the Armani Residences By Cesar Pelli - is slated to be designed by the internationally acclaimed architecture firm Pelli Clarke Pelli and developed by a joint-venture entity of Dezer Properties and the Related Group - which joined forced during the last boom-and-bust cycle to build the three Trump Towers in Sunny Isles Beach - around the 190th block of Collins Avenue, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

A Dezer Properties executive declined to comment on the project's number of towers or units but did confirm the proposed project would be "released" in December 2013.

In anticipation of the presale launch next month, has learned that exclusive broker presentations that detail the project have already occurred.

Even though the project's developers are not talking, Sunny Isles Beach real estate professional Lana Bell of One Sotheby's International Realty shared a sneak peek of the soon-to-be-announced project - which she calls a slightly revised name of "Armani House By Cesar Pelli" - that is to feature a pair of 55-story towers that each have about 250 units, according to Bell's November 8, 2013 market report.

In Sunny Isles Beach, the proposed Armani Residences By Cesar Pelli project is slated to go up on the site of the former 172-unit Seashore Club South motel-condominium at 18975 Collins Ave. that was terminated as an association on August 29, 2013, according to Miami-Dade County records.

As part of the paperwork filed, the termination plan disclosed that a Florida corporation - Dezer Larouche Holdings LLC - has a "purchase and sale agreement dated December 18, 2012" to acquire the Seashore Club South motel-condominium property for an unknown price, according to Miami-Dade County records.

The Dezer Larouche Holdings LLC has not taken title to recently terminated Seahorse Club South motel-condominium site as of November 8, 2013, according to Miami-Dade Property Appraiser records.

The push for new condo construction comes as the boom-era unit inventory is dwindling in South Florida.
