There were only five official Ritz-Carlton residential properties worldwide, and on Jan. 21, 2011, Palm Beach greeted number six, with the grand opening of The Ritz-Carlton Residences Singer Island, the first stand-alone Ritz-Carlton residence to reside in all of Florida.
Organized by international writer and curator, Gean Moreno, the social event was a place of notable artwork and delicious cuisines, having displayed art pieces from the private collections of Carlos and Rosa de la Cruz, Ella Fontanals Cisneros, Jane Holzer and Beth Rudin DeWoody. The food was sheer perfection, with caviar provided by Blackriver, hors d’oeuvres by renowned Chef Alain Bedard, and legendary drinks from Stolichnaya Elite Vodka, as the momentous guests were personally guided through the exquisite residency models by the Premiere Sales Group.
The legendary “white-gloved” services warmly welcomed each of the 400 guests with immense grace and high status, further reflecting on the comfortable regality The Ritz-Carlton has to offer. Distinguished guests of the event include Ophir Sternberg of Lionheart Capital along with partners Ophir Sternberg and Ricardo Dunin, designer Steven Gurowitz from Interiors by Steven G, Tatiana and Campion Platt, socialite Lori Stoll, artists Carol Prusa and Phillip Estlund, and Giants Hall-of-Famer Tucker Frederickson. VIP guests from Art Palm Beach were also present at the soiree, as was Bruce Helander, artist, critic and editor-in-chief of The Art Economist Magazine, presented an introduction to the artworks on loan.
With the miraculous artwork, appetizing food supply, and the elite attendees, it is clear to see that the Ritz-Carlton Residences Singer Island was one of the premiere social events of the season. Surely everyone is excited to see Palm Beach take the already prominent legacy to the next level. To view more photos from this event, visit Haute Living’s Events Gallery.
