Missoni x Miami: A Colorful World of Luxury 

The Italian luxury fashion house of Missoni is known for its sophisticated yet positively Italian use of color and design.

“I need a blank canvas, but a beautiful one,” noted Missoni when talking about her vision behind the luxury residences. “I need a view. I saw this building, and the view you can have from every floor, it's amazing.” She added, “You can wake up in the morning and feel like you have already meditated, even if you don't meditate. You wake up and say, ‘Wow, yes, here I am.’”


Missoni Baia: Design Influences and Interior Elements

“From the very beginning, the whole thinking was to design something on the Edgewater site because of its prominence,” explained architect and co-founder of Asymptote Architecture, Hani Rashid regarding the impetus of his design philosophy for the building.

“The idea (was) to produce something almost musical, demure, elegant, sophisticated, and clean,” said Rashid. “In that way, we put something in the skyline that is in dialogue with the Miami of today and tomorrow... Missoni Baia is not just a clean, beautiful, elegant statement. It's actually a kind of indication of how Miami is maturing."

As New York-based Paris Forino helmed the interior design on this luxury condo project, she summed up her design philosophy saying, "The inspiration for the interiors was clean, light, the perfect backdrop to insert the Missoni world...” And, she achieves this, with the building interiors exuding sophisticated elegance along with a splash of playful Missoni colors, fabrics, and textures, creating a vibrant yet tranquil community.

Moving into a Missoni Baia condo, residents can expect to be greeted by serene patterns and colors and kitchens that boast Blue de Savoie marble counters, dark mirrored backsplashes, plus matte white lacquer cabinets.

All master bedrooms offer a timeless, understated palette, complemented by spacious master baths featuring Dolomite mosaic and wall tiles, Calacatta Ice marble counters, and polished chrome fixtures.

Blackbook Properties Founder and luxury condo expert Sep Niakan describes Missoni Baia as “a bright and energizing addition to our Edgewater neighborhood. Buyers will find a fine balance of minimalist art, Missoni’s playful colors, and subtle Miami influences at these sublime waterfront residences.”

“From just looking at the renderings, most people easily identify elements that embody the essence of Missoni as a brand,” notes Niakan. “This brand identity, plus direct bay views from all residences, and an impressive amenity package are some of the main reasons the building is almost sold out ahead of its opening. It is equally popular among our domestic and international buyers.”


Missoni Baia: Amenities for Everyone in the Family

In addition to colorful homes crafted to put you instantly at ease, Missoni Baia features one of the most impressive, yet inclusive amenity packages in Miami. With two full floors of amenities, there’s little left to desire.

The waterfront building boasts of 5 swimming pools, including an Olympic-size pool, lounge pool, and a cantilevered Bayside pool. There are also two residents-only poolside lounge areas, multiple lounge-seating areas, an outdoor barbecue and cabana bar, and poolside daybeds to help you soak in the experience and some essential Vitamin D.

Those who love to lead an active lifestyle will enjoy having easy access to the soon-to-be completed Baywalk along the water, an elevated tennis court, a 3,300-square-foot gym with 180° views of the bay, a private yoga studio, and a private training room.

Missoni Baia also boasts of housing the largest, residents-only spa in Miami. The luxury building further features an on-site hair and nail salon plus a pet spa for your furry friends to enjoy.

Children can have fun too at their separate splash pad, play lawn, or Kids’ club.

Edgewater: One of Miami’s Most Desirable Neighborhoods

Talking about location, Angela Missoni righty notes, “Miami (is) a livable city where you can have a very good quality of life, and live there all year round while working. You can live with a different approach today, putting your quality of life at the front.” To this, long-time Edgewater resident Sep Niakan adds, “Edgewater is a neighborhood for everyone can have a blast; regardless of whether you’re single, married, with or without kids, or even retired. It is one of the best Miami neighborhoods to build a life in and is close to everything you could ask for – water, parks, restaurants, shopping, transportation.”
