Press Roundup: Flocking to Miami

Posted 09.17.2021

Missoni Baia continues to be the talk of the town, with coverage of these Edgewater condos marking its soaring sales as it passes the halfway mark in construction. The Next Miami reports that construction on the 57-story tower, designed by Asymptote Architecture’s Hani Rashid, continues on pace, with 53 stories already completed and each week adding another story to the tower. Sales at the legendary Italian fashion house’s first branded residential tower have also been making headlines, with a surge in sales in the last 60 days, according to Globe St.

Buyers have been flocking to Missoni Baia in tandem with the white-hot Miami luxury real estate market. Miami continues to attract domestic buyers with its stellar amenities and a lifestyle unlike any on offer in other major US cities. In an interview with Miami Herald, OKO Group’s Vladislav Doronin, who developed Missoni Baia in partnership with Cain International, noted the attraction of Miami, especially after more than a year of living with the pandemic. According to Doronin, “Now also people are coming because Miami has a nice style of living, not only because of the weather but you can live a normal life here.”

The appeal of Miami is universal. “Everyone wants to enjoy life, to go to restaurants, walk on the street, go on the beach,” said Doronin. The luxury Miami waterfront condos for sale at Missoni Baia have a particularly enticing appeal for future residents, thanks to its luxury amenities. As Doronin added, “At Missoni Baia you get five pools, a gym and even a spa for pets. There’s a tennis court. You can’t get that in New York.”

Due to its favorable tax structure and business environment, savvy buyers will continue to flock to Miami long after the pandemic, according to Jonathan Goldstein, CEO of Cain International, which has partnered with OKO Group in the development of Missoni Baia. As Goldstein told The Miami Herald, “Who isn’t going to want outdoor space in a warm place? Miami has every box ticked: the quality of residential real estate, entertainment, sports, business.” According to Goldstein, Missoni Baia’s location and views simply cannot be replicated elsewhere.

Vanessa Grout, CEO of OKO Real Estate, explained to Globe St. that nearly a thousand people have been moving to Florida daily. “The pandemic, coupled with people and businesses looking to relocate to tax-friendly states with reduced business and living expenses, is enticing out-of-state residents to make the move to Florida,” said Grout. Missoni Baia is nearing top-off with an anticipated completion date at the end of the year, as buyers continue to flock to these waterfront homes to take advantage of their unique work and lifestyle offerings.

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.

Breathtaking Views at Missoni Baia

Posted 08.27.2021

Interior designers, architects, and anyone with a keen eye for what makes a one-of-a-kind home know that stunning views add an intangible and immersive artistry and elegance to a residence. The East Edgewater Miami condos at Missoni Baia were designed with this principle in mind. Each residence takes advantage of its singular location with homes that showcase sweeping views of the city, Miami Beach, Biscayne Bay, and the rolling waves of the Atlantic beyond.

Each of the 249 residences at Missoni Baia’s waterfront architectural landmark reflect and display the striking East Edgewater setting in its full splendor. This Miami neighborhood is known as one of the most picturesque locales in a city recognized the world over for its stunning natural beauty and glistening cityscapes. Missoni Baia extends 200 feet along Biscayne Bay, over 57 expansive floors that take advantage of both their proximity to water and their soaring heights to create unparalleled panoramas.

When residents enter their homes at Missoni Baia — from one-bedrooms to palatial five-bedroom residences — they are greeted by a feast for the eyes. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows frame expansive, open living spaces, and allow extraordinary views and natural light to stream in throughout the day. Oversized private terraces let residents take in the views directly, whether it’s a sunrise over the calm blue waters of the bay to accompany their morning coffee, or miles of glittering Miami skyline as a backdrop to drinks with friends and colleagues in the evening.

 Of course, stunning views are not the only showstopping feature here. Each room in these Edgewater Miami condos was designed by Paris Forino to reflect the natural surroundings of serene sky, sun, and water — from kitchens with elegant Blue de Savoie marble counters and matte-white lacquer cabinets, to bathrooms with Dolomite mosaic and wall tiles, Calacatta Ice marble counters, and sparkling chrome fixtures.

 Together, these details allow residents to fully bask in the scenic and tranquil setting that is the East Edgewater neighborhood of Miami. To put it simply, the natural beauty of the area not only surrounds your Missoni Baia home, it is a part of it.
