Its grand opening was celebrated this January with synchronized swimming by the Aqualillies, live music and signature cocktails.

Amenities at this 513-unit luxury tower include sunrise-sunset pools, Zen treatment rooms, a ground-level restaurant and bar called Esotico Miami powered by the team behind Segafredo, a rooftop bar, eco-friendly gardens, yoga gardens, multimedia screening rooms, a sky-high 100-foot dog park and over 225 original works of art by 22 renowned street artists in its common spaces.
