The Estates at Acqualina
The twin 50-story towers being erected next to Acqualina Resort & Spa will not only feature lobbies designed by fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld, but they will also connect to the residents-only Spa at Villa Acqualina, the brainchild of New York designer Suchi Reddy. The centerpiece will be an exquisite salt room with salt-covered floors that can be raked like a Zen rock garden. estatesatacqualina.com
