Blog: A Weekend at Missoni Baia

Posted 10.19.2020

As your home base and private oasis, Missoni Baia serves as the start and finish to the perfect weekend in Miami. From Edgewater to Biscayne Bay, the perfect weekend awaits, and we’re serving up the perfectly crafted weekend with recommendations for museums, sunbathing, and fine dining, including an at-home feast created in your own state-of-the-art kitchen at Missoni Baia.

Saturday Brunch

Morgans is synonymous with comfort food. The white-painted 1930s house with a wraparound porch is homey from the first glance, and the black and white striped awning harkens back to Miami’s rustic, off-the-beaten-path past. Ask for a table on the porch, take in the morning air, and order raspberry flat cakes or brioche French toast—if you haven’t already overindulged in the mini-Danish from the basket that is delivered to every table before brunch. For a walk on the savory side, ask for eggs benedict or a delicate but filling omelet.

The Most Pleasant of Errands

Take a leisurely after-brunch stroll through the Upper East Side Farmers Market at Legion Park. You can browse seasonal specialties for a Saturday evening dinner in your condo, including local produce, grass-fed beef, and fixings for the quintessential Floridian meal: in-season stone crabs, home-baked bread, and honey—and fresh flowers to decorate the table. An assortment of vendors line the park, making for a colorful meander along the shoreline. As a bonus, ample free parking is available.

Culture Yourself

Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) has been a long-standing local favorite, showcasing 20th– and 21st-century international art. Since its earlier incarnations as the Center for the Fine Arts (CFA) and the Miami Art Museum, PAMM has evolved with the times and the community surrounding it, offering exhibitions that explore Miami as a cultural crossroads and gathering point for people of the world. PAMM is also known for promoting boundary-bending, interdisciplinary works and for interactive exhibitions that break down the wall between viewer and artist. Post-visit, you can stop by their restaurant, Verde, which serves a variety of fresh seasonal dishes like the Squash Blossoms Pizza with zucchini, goat cheese, and tomato sugo.

A Fabulous Dinner In

Remember those stone crabs and other sundries you procured at the farmers market? For a restaurant-worthy dinner in your own private residence, fire up each of the burners on your Gaggenau cooktop to steam your seafood and simmer the perfect dipping sauce. Your guests can take in the dramatic culinary display of sautéing and seasoning from the kitchen island. While they’re distracted by the stunning interplay between your kitchen’s Blue de Savoie marble counters, matte white lacquer cabinets, and mirrored backsplashes, reach into your wine cooler for a bottle of unoaked chardonnay or the champagne that you’ve been saving (this is, after all, the perfect weekend). Serve dinner with a freshly prepared green papaya salad, a morning-baked crusty loaf, and Florida-grown sweet corn on the cob with a touch of jalapeno butter. The large side-by-side fridge and freezer and pull-out pantry provide plenty of storage should there be any (unlikely) leftovers. Cleaning up is a breeze, thanks to your Gaggenau in-sink garbage disposal and zone dishwasher.

Sunday on Biscayne Bay

Get up early and grab your sunblock, a swimsuit, and a pair of shades for a trip out onto Biscayne Bay. On your way to the shore, stop at The Daily Creative Food Co for the Cuban Scramble of eggs, chorizo, and other savory sides, and be sure to grab a sack-lunch on your way out. The Charleston Post Pulled Pork will certainly travel well until hunger next strikes during your island adventure. Charter a craft and a captain for the day from Boat Miami Beach and enjoy waterskiing and tubing, or simply tour the open waters with a glass of champagne, while the licensed captain whisks you about the Bay. When you’re ready for a break, stop for lunch and a swim on Pace Picnic Island—that little grove of trees out in the middle of the bay that you see from your window at home. Part of the uninhabited Picnic Island chain, Pace Picnic Island is only accessible by sea. Sun yourself, open a cold one, and revel in your view of the Miami skyline across the water.

Unwind at Home, Miami-Style

Leave your swimsuit on, bypass your condo, and head straight to the fifth floor of Missoni Baia. There, you can relax in one of the daybeds next to the cantilevered pool, reading or taking in views of the bay. Kids can play in the nearby splash-pad play area or on the adjacent children’s lawn, and if you’ve got a little zip leftover from the afternoon’s waterskiing run, you can butterfly across the Olympic-sized lap pool. If not, take in a massage on the sixth floor at the in-house spa, complete with saunas, steam rooms, and whirlpool to finish working out any lingering knots in your muscles. Grill dinner on one of the outdoor barbecue and bar cabanas on the premises, or call Harry’s Pizzeria in the Design District for delivery of some serious wood oven pizza. If ever a guest doubts Miami’s pizza capabilities, you need only pass them a slice of the braised short rib, which was named one of America’s Best Pizzas by The Daily Meal.

Vladislav Doronin, CEO of development partner OKO Group, also praised the construction and design work, saying that “building Missoni Baia to its midpoint milestone is a remarkable moment for our team as we bring this elegantly designed, landmark project to life.”

Missoni Baia Reaches Midpoint Milestone

Posted 10.12.2020

Missoni Baia made the news last week when it reached the midpoint of construction, marking the first major milestone since the project broke ground. Industry outlets, including Global Construction and Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), report that construction at these Edgewater condos on Miami’s Biscayne Bay is moving along at a steady pace and that the tower will rise at a rate of one floor per week until the expected topping-out date in March of next year. Missoni Baia is now also listed at The Skyscraper Center, CTBUH’s premier architectural database, which is home to information about the world’s leading tall buildings.

A Luxurious Afternoon in the Miami Design District

Posted 09.23.2020

There’s more to Miami than pristine beaches and azure water; there’s a booming cultural and culinary scene that’s the ideal alfresco indulgence, whether you want to gallery hop or shop the day away in the city’s near-perfect weather. Residents of the Miami Edgewater condos at Missoni Baia are just a five-minute drive from the city’s center of glamor and fun—the Design District. 

A trip to the Design District is no ordinary shopping stroll. It’s an event because the best-of-the-best restaurants, fashion brands, and galleries call this upscale enclave home. Think of it as Fifth Avenue meets Rodeo Drive in the Florida sunshine. Whether you have a taste for cutting-edge art, high fashion, or haute cuisine, you’re in luck with a trip to the Design District. 

It seems that only in Miami would a contemporary art gallery based in a small town in Uruguay find its perfect niche in the US. And that’s just what the Piero Atchugarry Gallery has done. It instantly became a home for modern international artists—particularly sculptors—when it opened in 2014 in Garzón, Uruguay. In 2018, they grew internationally and initiated the ever-popular Miami outpost. Here, the gallery and its curators use what they call an “instructional approach” to shepherd and cultivate artists through residencies in their massive space in the Design District location. Take a look at the open-air, seemingly graph-paper-inspired geometric mural by Brazilian artist Lydia Okumura.

For a decidedly modern form of art—automotive design—take a walk through Prestige Imports Performing Art Pop-Up to see what high-design on four wheels looks like as you review the ultimate in automobiles. 

If you prefer haute couture over fast cars, you have plenty of boutiques to choose from. 

Those with a sartorial leaning will find world-class brands like Dior and Hermès alongside smaller, but no less fashionable, boutiques. Here, you can get everything from a once-in-a-lifetime outfit to an everyday fragrance. For the fashion-inclined kid and teenager, C’est Chou by Sienna is the spot. The shop wants girls and young women to take fashion into their own hands and be able to choose from a comprehensive selection of designers from around the world. 

Young or old, everyone in Florida knows that one of the only accessories that matters are your sunglasses. For over a decade, I on the District has been providing frames to the who’s who of Miami. Stop in to see the curated selection and try a pair for yourself. 

End your trip to the Design District with an essential cooldown with some artisanal natural ice cream or popsicles from Ladyfingrs pushcart. You can even get a whole box of pops to take back to your Miami Bayfront condos at Missoni Baia.

Missoni Baia is currently offering ​in-person and virtual presentations, reach out to our sales team today to schedule an appointment and start your life on the shores of Edgewater today!

Self-Care and Relaxation at Missoni Baia

Posted 09.17.2020

It’s always important to work some self-care time into your busy schedule. You can transform your Missoni Baia condo into a sanctuary of well-being. Enhance your mindfulness through innovative apps; master new recipes with guidance from an expert; and create an impromptu yoga studio — all within the comfort of your East Edgewater residence.

Enhance Your Mindfulness

A “healthier, happier, more well-rested life” is promised by mindfulness app Headspace. Start your day by listening to “The Wake Up,” a Headspace feature that offers inspiring stories and mini-meditations. Your condo bedroom — with its soft Paris Forino interiors inspired by the Miami waterfront — sets the perfect tranquil scene to prepare for the day ahead. If you’re working from home, take short breaks and listen to Headspace’s collections of soundscapes and soothing music. Meanwhile, the app Talkspace offers thousands of online therapists who can talk you through whatever is on your mind. Get comfortable on your sofa, with a backdrop of Biscayne Bay, and treat yourself to some “you” time.

Perform Yoga Al Fresco

Complement your healthy mind with a healthy body. At Missoni Baia, you can switch out the usual yoga studio for your private terrace that overlooks the bayfront. What better way to ease into the day than performing the naukasana (boat pose) with the sea breeze in your hair. The Gaia yoga app offers unlimited classes, so you can hop from vinyasa to yin to power. And if you miss your morning session, there’s even bedtime yoga.

Craft Seasonal Cuisine

It would be a crime not to make full use of the kitchen in your Edgewater Miami condo — with its Blue de Savoie marble counters and dark, mirrored backsplashes — but perhaps you need a little inspiration first. The Masterclass course by Alice Waters is a joyous celebration of farm-to-table cooking that emphasizes the use of seasonal produce. In 17 online classes, Waters teaches her philosophy on food, shows how to keep a well-stocked pantry, and helps you to master everything from the perfect galette to impeccable ravioli. Order your wholesome ingredients from the Urban Oasis Project, and create cuisine that’s nourishing for body and soul.

Bring the Spa to You

Sometimes the best way to relax involves sitting back and letting someone else do the work. If visiting a spa is off the table at the moment, bring the spa to your home. Zeel makes it easy to book in-home massages: Simply order on the app, and a massage therapist will arrive at your condo — sometimes in as little as an hour.

Help Locally at Missoni Baia

Posted 09.15.2020

With everything that’s been happening in 2020, the concept of community is well and truly back on the agenda. Residents can give back to the East Edgewater, and wider Miami community, by lending a hand to local foundations and organizations. We’ve rounded up a few, but there are plenty more just in the local community of Edgewater! 

 

National YoungArts Foundation 

The main campus\national headquarters of National YoungArts Foundation is just a few (dance) steps away from the Missoni Baia condos in Midtown Miami, so this cultural institution is close to the hearts of Edgewater residents. Its mission is to nourish and nurture young talent in the fields of visual, literary, and performing arts—helping them forge careers and realize dreams. Make a donation on the website or become a member of the Benefactor’s Circle—a network of arts-loving philanthropists who enjoy VIP access to National YoungArts Foundation events. A highlight of the year is the Backyard Ball—a rip-roaring celebration of YoungArts winners, featuring live music and dance, courtesy of students and alumni. Make a note to be at 2021’s ball.

 

Miami Rescue Mission

There are various Midtown branches of Miami Rescue Mission—although you’ll find them dotted across the city. In 2019, it provided 375,000 nights of safe shelter and almost a million meals to people in need. Homelessness has encountered new challenges in light of the pandemic, and this charity needs more help than ever—as well as volunteers to keep its centers running. The good news: you can get involved in many different ways: sign up for the Meals Club and help people get something to eat; take part in the Pack the Pantry Food Drive; join Girlfriends 4 Girlfriends, which aids women and children coming out of domestic violence or homelessness; or volunteer to serve meals, work in a thrift store, or organize events.

 

Foundation for New Education Initiatives

Miami-Dade public schools benefit greatly from the Foundation for New Education Initiatives—its motto, after all, is “giving our students the world.” Among the initiatives are college scholarships, a summer youth internship program, and mini-grants for teachers and schools. From these emerge new skills and opportunities for Miami students, and lives change for the better. Right now, the Foundation is committed to feeding less well-off members of the community. More than 500 hot meals are being delivered to students and their families each day, courtesy of COVID-19 relief efforts. As well as donating generously, you can sign up for an event, including the For the Love of Learning Gala in February 2021.

Missoni 101 and So Much More

Posted 08.07.2020

Missoni Baia took its residents-focused initiatives into the digital space this spring and summer, bringing members of the design team together with future residents to start building a sense of community at the forthcoming collection of Edgewater condos. Via a series of webinars, people have been learning about the inspiration behind the tower’s striking facade, following along with the landscape architect’s creative process, and even getting a headstart on filing next year’s taxes in the Sunshine State. This way, residents will arrive at the building with a vested sense of ownership and community.

Asymptote Architecture’s Hani Rashid joined residents for a webinar in May, where he spoke at length about his design philosophy and how he applied his experiences in the art and architecture worlds to designing the glass jewel that is Missoni Baia. Rashid’s process began with probing what he called Miami’s “DNA of place,” which includes everything from the weather and the people to the surrounding buildings. In the end, his design for Missoni Baia was a foil to and an elevation of Miami’s usual high-rise style, serving as a pure expression of waterfront luxury. 

Residents got an additional look into the inner workings of Missoni Baia’s design with another webinar in June, when two of Enea Garden Design’s Miami leads took time out of their day to talk through the process that produced the landscaping around Missoni Baia. The Enea team accepted the baton from Asymptote and carried it to the finish line, completing spaces like the grand lawn and the amenities deck with carefully chosen greenery and local plants. Ultimately, they created a singular expanse that will feel to residents like “their own private yard” and provide joy even when they are experiencing the Enea team’s contributions passively—for example, when they are simply standing beneath a palm tree and looking out at the unbroken expanse of Biscayne Bay.

Not all the webinars were about the beauty of Missoni Baia. The presentation by Robert Moore and Ceci Hassan of Baker McKenzie, which was a bit more pragmatic, focused on helping future residents make the transition to living in tax-friendly Florida. The details may seem daunting at first, but Moore and Hassan thoughtfully broke down the process by which residents of other states become Florida taxpayers and reap the benefits of the Sunshine State’s low tax burden.

From design appreciation to tax preparation, the Missoni Baia team is helping future residents make the most of the time between now and when they can move into the waterfront tower. So, check out these webinars to make sure you’re up to date on all that’s going on at these Miami condos for sale! Then head over to the Missoni Baia website to secure your spot in this fashionable tower.

Indulge at the Healthiest Food Spots in Town

Posted 08.06.2020

There’s nothing like summer to inspire you to eat light, fresh, and nutritious foods. Within just a few blocks of Missoni Baia, you’ll discover enough health food and organic restaurants to keep you occupied until next summer. And right now, they’re offering pickup and delivery services.

Pura Vida Edgewater

All-day breakfast takes on an altogether healthier meaning at Pura Vida. Order the avocado smash on toasted multigrain sourdough to kick off a feel-good weekend, and enjoy it on your condo terrace overlooking Biscayne Bay. Working from home during the week? Treat yourself to an order-in lunch. Choose Pura Vida’s mango salmon bowl (loaded with quinoa, arugula, and pickled cabbage), or perhaps their kale chicken Caesar salad — a healthier take on the classic dish. 

Green G

“This is my go-to place when I’m in need of a special treat, and I try to stop in every week. I trust them in using the best ingredients. I’ve been coming here for years.” That’s the ringing endorsement from one Green G regular, who rates this Edgewater health food restaurant highly for its Blue Monk Smoothie Bowls — loaded with Blue Majik, cashews, coconut, banana, monk fruit, and various other goodies. Other bowls on the menu include the “Amazonia” acai bowl (brimming with fresh banana, pineapple, bee pollen, and strawberries) and the “Green Street” bowl, starring crunchy kale, spinach, ginger, and hemp powder.

Dr. Smood

“Never Artificial. Never Processed. Always Organic.” That’s the guarantee from this East Edgewater health cafe. Right now, Dr. Smood’s Wynwood store (a five-minute drive from Missoni Baia) is offering delivery. Start your day right with the superfood oatmeal bowl; order a turmeric chicken salad sandwich for lunch; or get the nutritious wild rice spinach bowl delivered to your condo for dinner. Dr. Smood also has a menu of energy-boosting beverages to keep you going: Pick yourself up with the hawaj white coffee (spiced with ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and clove), and chase it with a ginger-lime booster.

OOH RAW!

The poke bowls at OOH RAW! are about as authentic as they come. That’s because the chefs at this Edgewater healthy eating spot hail from the Pacific islands, where this raw fish dish was born. Have fun selecting your protein (we’ll plump for the ahi tuna); base (jasmine rice for us); and sauce (soy citrus, thanks). After that, sprinkle your poke with anything from snow peas to red radish to seaweed salad. 

 

We find that poke is best enjoyed accompanied by views of sparkling Biscayne Bay, as seen through the full-height windows of your East Edgewater Miami condo.
