International superstar Lionel Richie joins firm’s Executives and Representatives to kick off the week

Art Basel Miami is not only the world’s leading art fair, it has become a showcase for the world’s most luxurious brands representing fashion, entertainment, yachting, real estate, hospitality and more.

TOWN Residential Executives and more than 100 TOWN Ambassadors are heading south Monday, November 30th through Sunday, December 6th for the annually anticipated Art Basel Miami Beach - the world’s premier modern and contemporary art fair. More than 250 leading international galleries will showcase a diverse collection of art, including pieces by established and emerging artists; plus curated projects, site-specific experiential work, film and video. With over 70,000 people from around the world in attendance, all eyes will be on Miami.

“Art Basel Miami is not only the world’s leading art fair, it has become a showcase for the world’s most luxurious brands representing fashion, entertainment, yachting, real estate, hospitality and more,” shared Andrew Heiberger, founder and CEO of TOWN Residential. “The week attracts art enthusiasts and aficionados alike with many of our clients and customers in attendance.”

Since TOWN’s inception, art has played a prominent role within the offices and culture. The firm has previously worked closely with extraordinary artists and historically celebrated photographers to adorn the offices with unrivaled creativity. Through sponsorship and direct engagement, TOWN Residential has also supported prominent art festivals including Frieze New York, Collective Design Fair, and New York’s Armory Week.

Throughout Art Basel Miami, TOWN Executives and Representatives will have exclusive access to a series of special VIP events as well as unlimited networking opportunities with a high-profile audience across the international business, entertainment, fashion and art worlds.

On Monday, November 30th, Andrew Heiberger will host a cocktail party and formal seated dinner at The Villa, Casa Casuarina, to welcome the firm's executives, Representatives and special guests – including international superstar Lionel Richie - to Art Basel Miami. Architecturally significant, The Villa was originally built in 1930 by the architect, author and philanthropist Alden Freeman and later purchased by the iconic fashion designer Gianni Versace. Today, The Villa operates as a boutique hotel and presents a stunning backdrop for special events.

The evening will be hosted in collaboration with Insignia-BNT, one of New York’s preeminent title insurance companies. In line with Town Residential’s hallmark best in class service, Insignia-BNT's philosophy is centered on their ability to provide a boutique level service to all title customers.

Among the activities on Tuesday, December 1st will be a bespoke art tour featuring a private viewing of the Littlest Sister at Spinello Projects; the famed De La Cruz Collection; Anonimo at M Building; The Margulies Collection; and The Wynwood Walls - the transformed warehouse district which now serves as larger than life canvases for the world’s leading street and graffiti artists.

Recognizing that today's Manhattan broker must be well versed and knowledgeable about global gateway markets to properly serve their customers and clientele, TOWN Residential has curated an all-day tour of more than 25 prime developments, Island properties and sky-high luxury homes for Wednesday, December 2nd.

“There is a definite urban trend in New York City, as well as in other cities like Miami, San Francisco and Los Angeles. With a strong attraction to culture, convenience and public transportation, luxury buyers are looking for homes within the city limits,” Andrew shared. “This tour will provide TOWN Representatives with genuine opportunities to become intimately familiar with the local inventory and trends.”

From famed Brickell Avenue, to exclusive Island communities and luxurious high rises, the TOWN Ambassadors will enjoy a true taste of Miami while sharing the sights on Instagram under the hashtag #TOWNxMiami.

The afternoon will end with a Yacht tour and trip to Privè, a private island in the Intracoastal Waterway ranked as the #1 Most Desired Ultra-Luxury Residences in Florida and #14 in the World by Elite Traveler Magazine.

Beginning Thursday, TOWN Ambassadors will Art Basel Miami Beach as well as the weekend’s top VIP events.
