For the past thirty years, Fortune International has been an industry leader in high-end luxury real estate in Miami, and more recently, in Latin America and Europe. Founded by Edgardo Defortuna, who is lauded for his contributions to Miami’s international real estate landscape, Fortune International seeks to develop unique properties that include the best of everything. This means the most pristine stretches of the beach, the most highly sought after addresses, the most respected names in architecture and interior design.
Fortune’s success has expanded from Miami’s best neighborhoods to Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, and Mexico and is currently entering the European market at full speed, with a special focus on Spain, Britain, France, and Russia. Through his company’s success, Defortuna is widely recognized for his influence in the internationalization of Miami and its reputation as a global business, trade and vacation hub. Defortuna’s latest project, Jade Signature on Sunny Isles Beach, is the pièce de résistance among Fortune’s prestigious Jade building collection. For its development, Defortuna assembled a world-class team: Pritzker Prize-winning Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, Parisian interior design firm PYR led by Pierre-Yves Rochon, and renowned Miami-based landscape architecture firm Raymond Jungles.
“We’ve been waiting for the perfect time, location and talent to launch Jade Signature,” says Defortuna. “It was our mission to deliver something that the market has never experienced before in Miami, and I think this development reflects exactly that. Herzog & de Meuron never ceases to create beautiful designs tailored to the surrounding environment, and with Fortune’s reputation for knowing what buyers of this caliber desire, I think we have perfected the elements for an extraordinary oceanfront building.”
Highly coveted and inventive, Herzog & de Meuron, known for the Beijing National Stadium, Tate Modern in London, 1111 Lincoln Road, and the new Peréz Art Museum Miami, has designed Jade Signature’s entrance and lobby to be directly connected to its pool and the beach, establishing a unique and seamless connection between the common areas and stunning natural surroundings. To achieve that seamless flow through design on the ground floor, the parking area has been designed to go underground.

The contemporary ‘houses in the sky’ at Jade Signature feature stunning oceanfront views with expansive terraces, making up an impressive 30 percent of living space. Windows, designed to frame the horizon, reinforce the connection between interior and exterior. Thanks to a study conducted by Herzog & de Meuron, the Jade Signature building’s zero-entry swimming pool and lap pool located on the beach level will capture the maximum amount of sunlight year round, especially during high season when most residences are in use. Jade Signature offers luxurious facilities for different ages including a ‘teen tech lounge’ featuring outdoor Ping-Pong, a toddler sensory room and reading center. There will also be a spa and water terrace offering unique and traditional spa amenities including a co-ed hamam, a cold rain shower, oceanfront massage beds, and a yoga deck surrounded by a Zen garden.
The 57-story building features 192 spacious homes, ranging from 1,400 to 10,500 square feet, and priced from $2 million to over $25 million. Jade Signature’s six Sky Villas are two stories with double height in the living areas and the two Signature penthouses each boast 360-degree views, 12-foot ceilings, a large terrace pool, and several suites for visiting guests. Fortune International also handles exclusive sales and marketing. For information please contact 1-888-530-9679 or visit www.jadesignature.com.
