THE PROPERTY WHERE PROHIBITION-ERA GANGSTER LIVED HITS THE MARKET FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE ITS RENOVATION
MB America announces that former Al Capone’s mansion in Miami Beach is on the market through top-producing Senior Vice President Nelson Gonzalez of EWM Realty International.
Waterfront located on the private, gated Palm Island community, the 7 bedroom, 5 full bathroom and 2 powder room property - renamed 93 Palm - is one of Miami’s oldest and most famous estates. To discerning buyers looking for pristine privacy and timeless grace, 93 Palm offers the desirable combination of strong investment security, glamorous potential and historical value.
"93 Palm has been a landmark in Miami Beach for more than 90 years. We have been particularly respectful when working on this heritage building and we are proud that we rescued it" said Marco Bruzzi, MB America CEO. "93 Palm represents the rare opportunity to own a slice of American history".
Built in 1922, prohibition-era gangster Al Capone bought the property in 1928 to make it his sunshine retreat. In 2014 MB America acquired 93 Palm on behalf of a private investor. To rescue it from a state of progressive deterioration, MB America contracted a Boston-based team of experts in restoring and rebuilding heritage buildings. After 6 months of intensive work, a team of 50 people led by MB America brought 93 Palm back to its original splendor in record time. Today, 93 Palm is a private property which has been featured in a wide range of TV programs and documentaries, and has hosted photo/video shoots, events, movies as well as products launches.
"When restoring 93 Palm, we wanted to remain true to the property’s era and existing architecture," said the Italian architect Monica Melotti, MB America Chief Design Officer. "While the estate retains its original characteristics and heritage, we reinforced its infrastructure and selected design elements that offer a historical context with a 21st century twist. The final result gives a refined sense of modern elegance combined with an old world charm".
