It was truly an iconic night at Life Time Coral Gables on Thursday, as nearly 300 people attended its first ever Masquerade event, where there was live poolside music by (DJ Eve), live pool and acrobatic entertainment, a violinist, hand crafted cocktails, culinary creations and maître d’ service. Members and VIP guests enjoyed an extraordinary night at this exclusive event, while they had an opportunity to truly relish in the live, work, play and stay experience at the only one-of-its-kind, 1.2 million square foot development that made its debut in August. Life Time Coral Gables is the ultimate destination for a happy, healthy way of life, that is transforming healthy living as we know it, by seamlessly integrating its 80,000-square-foot luxury athletic resort, a 25,000-square-foot workspace and high-end leased residences.

For busy, health-minded, highly discerning consumers seeking the ultimate in convenience and luxury, Life Time Coral Gables is planning to transform healthy living. Conceptualized by Life Time, the nation’s premier healthy lifestyle brand, the more than $500 million, 14-story, 1.2 million-square-foot development seamlessly integrates where consumers live, work, play and stay as a first-of-its-kind destination centered around the Company’s iconic athletic resort.

The development features an 80,000-square-foot luxury athletic resort, a 25,000-square-foot Life Time Work and 495 luxuriously appointed residences, including studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom, and penthouse units. Directly adjacent to Shops at Merrick Park, and minutes from downtown Coral Gables and Coconut Grove, the project’s soon-to-open retail component will feature a Trader Joe’s, locally famed Argentinian restaurant, Graziano’s and other offerings.

“I could not be more excited about the completely new concept we’re bringing to The City Beautiful—and North America—as our first combined Life Time Athletic, Life Time Work and Life Time Living destination. Never has a development been designed with such a comprehensive healthy way of life in mind, body and soul—centered around our iconic athletic resort,” says Gino Santia, director, Life Time Coral Gables. “For nearly 30 years, we have operated premier athletic resorts and, for the first time, “second home” has a new meaning as members truly can live, work, exercise and play in this amazing development offering a full healthy way of life experience.”
