Neighborhood Highlight: Miami Design District

Posted 06.26.2022

Miami’s Design District is a mecca for fine art, high-end design, and storefronts of some of the greatest names in fashion, all just minutes from the Midtown Miami Edgewater condos at Missoni Baia. An afternoon spent here is more than just a shopping trip, it’s a creative experience — one that includes some of the best restaurants in Miami, so you can pair your day of visual discovery with some gastronomic adventures. 

In a neighborhood filled with architectural marvels and outdoor as well as indoor installations, it’s only natural that there is a Public Art Tour that helps you discover the area as something greater than the sum of its parts — the neighborhood is a work of art in itself. On the tour, you’ll get up close and personal with outdoor works like Buckminster Fuller’s “Fly’s Eye Dome,” Virgil Abloh’s “Dollar a Gallon III,” and John Baldessari’s pair of giant wall murals, “Fun (Part 1)” and “Fun (Part 2).” 

A few of the stores, such as Dr. Barbara Sturm, Maison Francis Kurkdjian, and Ganni, not only sell products but also take you on a tour of discovery. Each of these thoughtfully designed shops introduces you to visionaries in their fields in an environment made for browsing and relaxing. Sturm is world renowned for the way her skin products and beloved facials combine beauty ideals with innovative science. Kurkdjian’s shop is a place where you can buy perfume and rediscover it, too. You’ll find scent blends created with the subtlety and originality of a poet. At Ganni, Scandinavian design is given a playful twist by husband and wife team Ditte and Nicolaj Reffstrup. Round out your summer wardrobe with the latest from Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and Celine. Fill your Edgewater Miami condo at Missoni Baia with design masterpieces from B&B Italia, Janus et Ci, and the Luxury Living Showroom, which features Fendi Casa, Bugatti Home, Baccarat La Maison, and the Ritz Paris Home Collection. 

After shopping and taking in the art, treat yourself to dinner at one of the three Design District restaurants that have been awarded Michelin stars: Cote, Le Jardinier, and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, the only restaurant in Florida to receive two of the coveted stars. At the 34-seat dining counter overlooking an open kitchen, guests at L’Atelier will have a glimpse of the cooking process while feasting on poached black bass with mussel and vanilla broth, and squab with foie gras and mashed potatoes. You’ll want to come back to taste everything at this award-winning restaurant, where the visual pleasure of your surroundings, like the streets and shops of the district itself, emphasizes the fact that here you are experiencing the best of the best in design and luxury living. Contact the sales team at Missoni Baia today to learn more about the surrounding area and all the excitement it has to offer!

Pet Amenities at Missoni Baia

Posted 06.13.2022

Best friends deserve all the love—and extra-special pampering—that money can buy. That adage is, of course, true for our beloved four-legged friends. Pets are not just cute companions; they provide health benefits for their humans—ranging from improving cardiovascular health and lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels to easing stress and anxiety and raising serotonin and dopamine levels. Not to mention the cuddles, paw shakes, purrs, and play sessions they offer us each day. It’s no wonder that pet owners want to spoil their companions—and Missoni Baia has created just the amenities package to pamper humans and pets alike.

Missoni Baia’s Edgewater Miami condos are known for their ultraluxe amenities suite, with three floors dedicated to bayfront lounging, pools, beauty salons, and fitness facilities, among other perks for residents. For pets, too, the luxuries are drool-worthy. Missoni Baia is part of the Bark Buildings amenity program, which offers premium services to ultraluxury condominiums to simplify pet care and transform it to a next-level experience for pets. 

When their humans need a little help while working at home, lounging poolside, or making a trip away from home, services are available for pet sitting and pet walking, and there is a pet spa on the fifth level. Full-service groomers are available to pick up even the shaggiest four-legged friend and bring them back home after true VIP treatment. And for a little advanced education, trainers are available to teach even the oldest dogs new tricks. For a safe and seamless experience, dog walkers and groomers have been fully vetted by Missoni Baia and have been trained about the building and its protocols. Finally, Missoni Baia also features several outdoor amenities, such as a play lawn and outdoor deck, for dogs and their owners to enjoy the comforts of home together.

Amenity Spotlight: Pools At Missoni Baia

Posted 05.26.2022

Summer is fast approaching. That means schools are out, the sun’s out, too, and the mercury is rising, just as you’re preparing to kick back and enjoy well-earned vacation days—and nights. Of course, in Miami, glorious weather and sunshine are year-round blessings, as are relaxing vibes from its all-encompassing natural beauty—this on top of the habitual beauty of the city’s art-deco architecture, its thriving art scene, and its welcoming, sun-soaked denizens. But summer is still a cause for celebration at Missoni Baia’s Edgewater Miami condos. Whether you’re basking in the sun poolside or staying fit with laps, Missoni Baia’s collection of pools for recreation and fitness pursuits set the ultraluxe and extra relaxing scene for the best season of the year. 

Missoni Baia’s amenities on the fifth through seventh floors include a bayfront lounge. Its picture-perfect cantilevered pool overlooks Downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay and creates the illusion of endless, pristine blue from the sky above, the bay beyond, and the shimmering pool at your toes. Cross an outdoor bridge to the sixth-floor indoor amenities suite, which features the flow-through pool deck with cabanas that allows you to move between pools in comfort. The Olympic-sized lap pool is perfect for the serious swimmer to butterfly and glide through their swimming lane, as well as the novice swimmer looking to start a low-impact fitness routine that goes easy on joints—and everyone in between. After a long swim or workout or simply to decompress for the day, plunge pools, including a whirlpool spa, are available, as are water features made to keep children entertained during summer vacation days. 

Of course, sometimes the best feature of a pool isn’t the crisp water but the adjacent poolside lounging. Missoni Baia residents have at their disposal two poolside residents-only lounges, poolside daybeds for serious relaxation or napping, an indoor bay terrace lounge with towering ceilings, and a wraparound outdoor deck with dedicated areas for lounging and seating for groups. After a day of swimming and lounging, residents can head to the seventh-floor men’s and women’s locker rooms, with exclusive residents-only men’s and women’s sauna and steam rooms, for another moment of relaxation. 

With steam, whirlpools, a sauna, a lounge, and Olympic pools among its aquatic offerings, Missoni Baia has a wealth of amenities to stay cool, stay fit, relax, and enjoy the summer. To learn more, contact a dedicated agent at Missoni Baia today!

Art on the Waterfront: Missoni Baia and PAMM

Posted 05.26.2022

The new collection of Italian-inspired Edgewater, Miami, condos at Missoni Baia is just the latest in a long line of artful buildings popping up on the waterfront. Today, we’re highlighting another of these waterfront wonders, the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), which can be found just south of the shining Missoni Baia tower. Keep reading to learn about the museum’s history as well as what you can see there this summer! 

The grand Pérez Art Museum Miami had humble beginnings. Founded in 1983 as a spartan exhibition hall for traveling shows, the museum, then simply called “the Center for the Fine Arts,” was constrained by its lack of space for a permanent collection. Its successor, the Miami Art Museum, was founded in 1996 in an effort to create a robust contemporary and modern art museum, but it took until the 2010s for the institution to find its final location on the Biscayne Bay waterfront. 

The Pérez Art Museum Miami got its new name in 2013 along with a brand-new building from renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron, whose design incorporated a grand staircase leading to the water, a series of wraparound terraces, and the building’s defining feature, a living roof by French botanist Patrick Blanc that features more than 80 kinds of subtropical plants. The three-story building has ample room for exhibits, large and small, including high galleries that can accommodate massive installations. The new museum created a central cultural space to which all art-loving Miamians can flock to experience an exultant permanent collection as well as a constantly rotating set of exhibitions. 

This summer, Miamians have the opportunity to see a couple of unique installations at the museum. The fascinating Marisol and Warhol Take New York exhibit seeks to reclaim the French-Venezuelan artist’s place in the New York City pop art scene of the 1960s by “situating her work in dialogue with Warhol’s,” demonstrating how she influenced and was influenced by her more well-known contemporaries. Fans of the grand works of Cristo and Jeanne-Claude will love the intimate exhibit Cristo Drawings, where visitors can trace the development of these breathtaking works that “wrap around” the natural world from their earliest phase of conception. 

Of course, visitors should check out the halls housing PAMM’s permanent collection as well. Whether you’re intrigued by a specific exhibit or just want to explore one of Miami’s most diverse collections of contemporary and modern art, you won’t regret spending a day at

PAMM. And if you’re also intrigued by the idea of spending future days and nights in the artistic splendor of Missoni Baia itself, contact our team today.

The Art Galleries and Luxury Boutiques of East Edgewater

Posted 04.22.2022

When you live in the Midtown Miami Edgewater condos at Missoni Baia, you are surrounded by the Missoni family’s creative vision. Life becomes a work of art. With the booming Miami art scene, that vision continues beyond the front doors, where some of the world’s most exciting artists are being shown in galleries and museums that have become international art destinations. 

A weekend of exploring the neighborhoods that have put Miami front and center on the international art map begins with a trip to the Perez Art Museum. The current roster of exhibitions reads like a survey of the latest trends and trendsetters in the art world. 

The exhibit “Marisol and Warhol Take New York” pairs the work of the female sculptor known simply as Marisol, whose efforts have been largely underrecognized until now, with the work of one of 20th century America’s most famous art icons. Warhol’s prints featuring celebrated images like the Kennedys and Campbell’s Soup cans are shown alongside Marisol’s painted sculptures of figures that merge folk and Pop Art influences. Simone Leigh’s “Trophallaxis” is an installation whose abstracted, chandelier-like form explores questions about the female body in a way that is as poetic as it is provocative.

With a design by Pritzker Prize-winning team Herzog and de Meuron, the building that houses the Perez Art Museum is compellingly sculptural. The architects worked with landscape designers to create a structure that emphasizes its connection to the surrounding Miami landscape, which includes views of the water and plenty of shaded public spaces. A visit to the museum is a transporting experience that puts you in touch with the exact intersection of nature and culture that makes Miami such a remarkable place.

The Rubell Museum bears the distinction of having been formed from a personal collection acquired over years of close contact with artists. Don and Mera Rubell began their collection with a deep passion for the work they sought out and acquired. It’s a personal vision that can be felt throughout the collection, which includes work by Jeff Koons, Catherine Opie, Keith Haring, and Kehinde Wiley.

Currently on view at the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse is “Arte Povera: Postwar Italian Art from the Margulies Collection” and “Anslem Kiefer: Leviathan und Behemoth.” The Kiefer is a 20-foot photographic emulsion, a monumental addition to the collection’s trove of work by the world-renowned artist.

Downtown Miami itself is a collection of architectural works of note that merit a tour of their own. The Alfred I. duPont Building is an Art Deco tower with a black granite base and elevators sporting ibises and egrets cast in bronze. The Olympia Theater dates back to 1926. It has a ceiling of glittering stars, and its stage has hosted the likes of Elvis Presley, Ella Fitzgerald, and Milton Berle. 

While the Olympia has the feel of a planetarium set to music, the Frost Planetarium at the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science is the place to not only sit beneath the stars but learn about their births and deaths and how they have helped to shape the universe as we know it. 

Think of one weekend of museum hopping as just the beginning of a long and deep relationship with the culture of Miami, a seamless extension of the thousand inspirations that make the East Edgewater condos at Missoni Baia such a deeply creative place to be.

Edgewater’s Best-Kept Secret: Margaret Pace Park

Posted 03.30.2022

One of the primary reasons to move to East Edgewater is the neighborhood’s eponymous waterfront location. From panoramic views and cool sea breezes to easy access to boat launches and seaside walkways, East Edgewater is a water lover’s dream neighborhood come to life. Residents of the forthcoming Edgewater condos at Missoni Baia will wake up each day in their own private waterfront home, complete with a deep-set terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows that make the most of this prime location. Additionally, just a mile south of the tower, residents will find one of the Miami waterfront’s best-kept secrets, waiting to be explored. 

Margaret Pace Park features eight acres of green space and recreational attractions right on the shore of Biscayne Bay. The urban park was created in the late 1960s thanks to the efforts of Margaret Pace, a Miami preservationist known for her work as chairwoman of Royal Palm State Park (which later became part of the Everglades National Park) and as a founder and president of the Miami Garden Club. The park is located next to a cross-section of Miami architectural history, with the massive Omni development and the Miami Women’s Club, where Margaret Pace once served as vice president. 

The park is home to a host of recreational areas, including much-loved tennis and basketball courts, a playground, and picnic tables. Lawns and benches make great areas to settle in and enjoy the waterfront view of the Venetian Islands and Miami Beach across the bay. (It’s not a bad place to people-watch either!) Whether they prefer to soak up some sun rays behind a good book or toss a frisbee for all to see, Miamians love flocking to Margaret Pace Park whenever the sun is shining. 

When hunger strikes, park visitors can grab a bite at the nearby Daily Creative sandwich shop. Whether they’re in the mood for a hearty Cuban Scramble, a few slices of sweet Challah French Toast, or a fusion-style egg wrap, the Daily Creative is sure to have something on its menu for every hungry Miamian. 

And the residents of Missoni Baia’s Midtown Miami condos can be back in the comfort of their own Edgewater home just minutes after finishing their workout or picnic in Margaret Pace Park. As the sun sets, they can relax in the building’s massive private spa, unwind in one of its many pools or hot tubs, or mix up a cocktail and take in the fading light from their private terrace. Please contact our team to learn about the waterfront lifestyle you can have at Missoni Bai. When you live here, all of Miami becomes your playground.
