The Brazilians have been buying up Miami luxury condos for some time, but now Brazil is exporting to Miami its best hotel and restaurant brand, Fasano, and one of its best architects, Isay Weinfeld to develop Fasano Miami Beach.

Arguably the most important restaurateur in Brazil, the Fasano already owns and operates luxury hotels in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Punta del Este, Uruguay.  Even though the Fasano operates only a handful of hotels, their properties have a very affluent following, including many celebrities. The move from Morgans Hotel Group to Fasano will be a big improvement for the hotel, which is undergoing a major redevelopment by HFZ, with architect Isay Weinfeld creating a sophisticated development of a 100-room hotel and 75 condos.

It is no coincidence that Isay Weinfeld is the architect of the project. The minimalist Brazilian architect has designed all of the Fasano hotels, as well as many of its restaurants, including, among others, the Forneria and Rodeio restaurants. Isay Weinfeld is also designing a new condo project in New York City, Jardim, at 520 W 27th Street, adjacent to the Zaha Hadid project that is par of the new wave of condos around the High Line.

Fasano will continue its expansion into the US with a hotel that will be opening along Billionaire’s Row at 57th close to Fifth Avenue in New York City.  We’ll bet that Weinfeld will be the architect for that project as well.
