East Edgewater: Your Leisure DestinationPosted 01.13.2022
A stone’s throw from stunning waterfront walks, rip-roaring sports events, delectable eateries, and a buzzing performing arts district, East Edgewater has become one of the Miami neighborhoods. Here are some of the thrills to be had on the doorstep of your Missoni Baia condo.
Blissful Biscayne Bay
While much of Biscayne Bay National Park lies underwater (think dolphins, dazzling coral, even shipwreck tourism), you can still admire it from the land. Feel the sea breeze in your hair by hopping on a Citi Bike and pedalling down the coast, pausing to cool off at Maurice A. Ferré Park, Bayfront Park, and Brickell Key Park. Otherwise, meander to these waterfront parks by foot, soaking up their palm-fringed lawns, public sculptures, and blissful bay views. You could even take a picnic.
Admiring the Artscape
Everywhere you turn in Edgewater, there’s art to admire, from the eight permanent galleries of Latinx, African, and Caribbean works at Pérez Art Museum Miami to the large-scale graffiti walls painted by artists, including Lady Pink and Shepard Fairey, at Wynwood Walls. Looking to add a masterpiece or two to the walls of your own Midtown Miami condo? Oliver Cole Gallery has works for sale from world-renowned names such as Ai Weiwei and Damien Hirst.
Showstopping Sports Events
In this part of Edgewater, you’re never far from a showstopping fix of live sports. Just over 10 minutes by car from Missoni Baia is loanDepot Park—home to the Marlins. Grab a hot dog and cheer on your local baseball team—their first game of the season on March 1 is against the Mets. If basketball’s more your speed, get behind the Miami Heat as they take on rivals at the FTX Arena. It’s so close to home that you can walk to games along the waterfront.
Delectable Drinking and Dining
No car is required to sample some of Edgewater’s finest food and drink; temptingly close to your Biscayne Bay condo, kick off the evening with a Fly Me to Tulum cocktail on Three & No. 3 Social’s rooftop before moving onto pumpkin gnocchi and soaked duck breast at Beaker & Gray. There’s plenty more where that came from—plus the delights of Downtown Miami are just a 10-minute drive from your bayfront condo.

East Edgewater’s Cultural HighlightsPosted 10.29.2021
The Miami waterfront condos for sale at Missoni Baia are the architectural embodiment of fashionable style rooted in familial connection and artistic expression of everyday life. If living at Missoni Baia is a creative act, then its location in Miami’s up-and-coming East Edgewater neighborhood makes it the perfect place to find inspiration at home and on the town. In addition to being the site of some of Miami’s hottest galleries and high-end boutiques, East Edgewater is also Miami’s cultural mecca for renowned art collections and museums. These are the kinds of places where you’ll want to become a regular visitor, weaving their creative vibes into your daily existence.
Perez Art Museum Miami is a cornerstone of the city’s modern and contemporary art holdings from the 20th and 21st centuries. Housed in a building designed by Herzog & de Meuron, it features a sculpture garden with works by artists such as Anthony Caro, Edgar Negret, and Ernesto Neto and trees and plantings designed to create a dialogue with the exterior of the building. Rotating exhibits feature works on the cutting edge of the art practice of their time as well as the current scene. Currently on view and not to be missed is Meleko Mokgosi’s Your Trip to Africa, a large-scale artwork situated in the museum’s two-story project gallery that references European 18th- and 19th-century history painting through a postcolonial lens and takes its title from an unusual film by Peter Kubelka.
Just a few steps from PAMM is the Frost Science Museum, where the majesty of the deep ocean and the cosmos meet. The six-story museum contains a multilevel aquarium, a planetarium, and a rotating roster of awe-inspiring exhibits. Currently on view is Feathers to the Stars, which charts the history of flight from the dinosaurs to human invention; MeLab, which explores the relationship between the body and the mind; and Power of Science, which reveals how science has changed the world throughout history.
Another international art destination located in Miami is the Rubell Museum, the passion and life’s work of Don and Mera Rubell, whose collector’s instincts led them to early acquisitions of work by artists who subsequently became some of the art world’s most important figures. Works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cecily Brown, and William Kentridge help form the backbone of a collection now housed in a 100,000-square-foot complex that not only connects the public with contemporary art but functions as a record of how the Rubells and Miami have helped shape the landscape of contemporary art.
The richness of Miami culture doesn’t stop at night, and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts has a fall and winter lineup of some of today’s most exciting musicians and performers. This November, you can attend concerts by Chucho Valdes, The French Horn Collective, and the Gypsy Kings. The Center is yet another East Edgewater institution whose portal to the international world of art and performance is always within easy reach of the Biscayne Bay condos at Missoni Baia.
Contact the Missoni Baia team to discover your new home in the cultural center of it all.
Two Exclusive North Corner ResidencesPosted 10.22.2021
For those seeking effortlessly spacious Edgewater condos with both bay and city views, Tower 01/06 at Missoni Baia goes above and beyond. Here, on floors 55 and 56, are two remarkable “combined residences” offering double the space and featuring luxury touches at every twist and turn.

With their 3,809-square-foot interiors, four bedrooms, and five and a half bathrooms each, these two north corner residences have space, and plenty of it.

Luxury touches all over
Quality is central to the Missoni Baia mantra. These combined residences may be large, but every inch speaks of luxury. Floor-to-ceiling glass invites in the magical Miami sun and skies, while automated unit climate control keeps your environment just so. World-acclaimed Paris Forino Interior Design has made the kitchens sparkle with marble countertops and custom-designed Italian kitchen cabinetry by Italkraft. The bedrooms are elegantly understated, allowing the aura of Miami itself to do the talking. Calacatta fusion marble counters and polished chrome fixtures offer spa-quality indulgence every time you take a soak in the master bath.
Condos that keep on giving
The interiors of Missoni Baia condos are only half the story. Each combined residence also boasts two balconies, where you can luxuriate in Miami’s climate and its spectacular views.

“Spa at Sea” Massage and Wellness CruisePosted 09.27.2021
The first architectural dream child of the Missoni company, Missoni Baia is a tower overlooking Biscayne Bay whose design and ethos, much like the Missoni fashion label, embody laid-back, effortless luxury. It offers a way of life that emphasizes both wellness and inspiration and encourages ease by the simple fact of living there. Two of the best ways to relax are to get a massage and to commune with nature, and luckily for residents at these Miami Bayfront condos, the natural gifts of the beach, as well as the highest quality spa services, are located just steps away. For an all-out wellness, detox, and relaxation experience, you can combine the two and take a “Spa at Sea” wellness cruise with Miami Charters, located a short drive away from these Midtown Miami Edgewater condos.
The “Spa at Sea” cruise combines the luxury of Miami Charters yachts with the total relaxation of your choice of reflexology, Shiatsu massage, or Swedish massage. Swedish massage, one of the most classic forms of massage, begins with light strokes and includes kneading and vibration; so much more than just relaxing the muscles, it drains lymph channels and regulates breathing. Shiatsu massage is a Chinese modality based on acupuncture pressure points and often provides a boost in energy. Reflexology primarily focuses on the feet in accordance with the idea that different parts of the foot correspond to various parts and organs in the body. Whichever you choose, know that all three of these techniques promote wellness in the body and mind and set you up to be your physical and mental best self in the days ahead, all the more so because they take place on the deck of a yacht cruising through the water with sea breezes and an expert crew, complete with fresh snacks and drinks to serve you. You’ll get the meditative experience of being on the water with the sun beaming on your skin, calm and refreshed.
For treatments closer to home, visit the spa at Missoni Baia itself, another curated wellness experience, where the setting this time is the building’s dedicated wellness amenity space. A combination of inspired design and luxury treatments at their best, it’s the largest residents-only spa in Miami, and Missoni Baia residents will be able to luxuriate in a massage in a private room designed for optimal elegance by Paris Forino, or they can choose a detox treatment in the steam room or sauna. With the added opportunity to relax before, during, and after your appointment on the outdoor treatment decks, your wellness journey at the intersection of nature and luxury flourishes at the Edgewater condos at Missoni Baia.

Culinary Delights in East EdgewaterPosted 09.21.2021
Though Miami may be best known around the world for its sandy beaches, year-round temperate weather, and riveting nightlife, the Magic City has emerged in recent years as a global culinary powerhouse. World-class chefs and cutting-edge restaurants have made Miami a flourishing must-visit dining destination. Residents of Missoni Baia’s East Edgewater Miami condos are a stone’s throw from many of the city’s finest restaurants, which capture the range of top culinary talent, cuisines, and flavors that reflect Miami’s diverse and alluring spirit.
For refined Turkish and Greek fare, Mandolin Aegean Bistro transports patrons from the Miami shores to the Aegean Coast. Ahmet Erkaya and Anastasia Koutsioukis, the husband-and-wife team behind this bistro, carefully restored a charming 1940s home with garden and outdoor patio space, replete with distinctive details like antique sea-blue doors and window shutters. The welcoming decor, with rustic wood farm tables and fresh floral arrangements throughout, is almost as inviting as the main draw—traditional Greek and Turkish coastal food made with seasonal, local ingredients. The menu includes staples like a Greek sampler of classic spreads and baked feta, moussaka, beef souvlaki, and whole sea bass grilled with Aegean olive oil—all exquisitely rendered.
Located in the Wynwood Art District, dōma serves up Mediterranean-inspired, Southern Italian lunch and dinner offerings made with ingenuity from local ingredients, with a special emphasis on seafood and fish. The decor is natural light-infused and modern. True to its name, which means “home” or the “roof under which people gather,” dōma has a cozy ambiance, complemented by traditional dishes like the candele alla Genovese of “slowly cooked” beef ragu and parmesan cheese or the tagliolini of black truffle and French butter, while the “modern” column of the menu features items like homemade gnocchi with Argentinian prawns, green peas, and pecan crumble. Everything here, from the bites plates options of meatballs with sweet provolone cheese or fried calamari with zucchini to the desserts of classic tiramisu or vanilla pannacotta with strawberry puree and dried pineapple (to name just a few choices), will ensure a highly satisfying meal experience.
For sushi and other raw bar fare, SUGARCANE provides globally inspired small plate offerings. Since entering the Miami dining scene over a decade ago, this brasserie-style restaurant has won widespread acclaim, including being named “Restaurant of the Year” by Eater, all while maintaining a welcoming ambiance and a warm aesthetic inspired by Old Havana. Plates from the grill include Korean-style beef short ribs, skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, and the iconic dish of crispy duck leg confit, fried duck egg, and waffle. SUGARCANE sushi rolls complement their fresh sushi and sashimi offerings, while the raw bar includes the requisite seasonal oysters, along with shrimp and Florida snapper ceviches, Hokkaido scallops, and yellowfin tuna tartare, among others.
Each of these restaurants certainly merits repeat visits to taste their range of offerings—or simply to revisit a new favorite dish—as part of the exploration of Miami’s dynamic culinary scene near the Biscayne Bay condos at Missoni Baia. Contact the team at Missoni Baia to learn more about our exclusive collection of one- to five-bedroom bayfront homes.
Designer DigsPosted 09.02.2021
As Missoni Baia nears completion, fashionable Miamians are itching to move into these sleek, art-inspired homes along the shores of Biscayne Bay in the trendy Edgewater neighborhood. The building was designed by Hani Rashid with lush landscaping from Enzo Enea, while Paris Forino handled interiors under the watchful eyes of Angela and Rosita Missoni. The result is a sculptural tower that encompasses spacious, light-flooded homes and a suite of resort-style amenities that exude Missoni’s geometric and colorful aesthetic. Residents will enjoy swimming in five separate pools, lounging on one of the pair of poolside decks, unwinding in the building’s large private spa, or working up a sweat on the tennis courts or in the gym, all without leaving the fashionable confines of their own building.
