This triplex apartment on three high floors in the 50-story Ten Museum Park condo tower in downtown Miami was the longtime home of celebrity interior designer Lorraine Letendre.

"Lorraine was a force, the designer that everyone wanted to go to," said listing agent Jill Hertzberg, of The Jills Zeder Group, which is affiliated with Coldwell Banker Realty.

"She was always ahead," Ms. Hertzberg said. "Her client base was the who's who of people with impeccable taste and the financial ability to afford her."

Letendre's projects included fashion designer Calvin Klein's Hamptons home and Hollywood director/producer Michael Bay's Los Angeles residence, according to published reports. She died in April at age 72 of cancer, and last year donated $100,000 to set up the Lorraine Letendre Gynecologic Oncology Research Fund at the University of Miami.

Known as the Tower Suite, the triplex unit is on floors 42, 43 and 44 of the 200-unit condo tower on Biscayne Boulevard, which was completed in 2007.

"This was her own three-story home," Ms. Hertzberg said. "She completely gutted everything that was there and rebuilt it from scratch," working with the builder Jerry Rowland.

"Everything she used is organic-stone, marble, wood," Ms. Hertzberg said.

Other architectural and design details include 20-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a dramatic white staircase, custom millwork, lime-based plaster walls and ceilings, smart-wired lighting and drapes, water filtration and sliding glass impact doors that open to the balcony. The home has unobstructed views of downtown Miami, Miami Beach and the port of Miami.
