Positioned directly on the front line of East Edgewater’s waterfront with panoramic views over Biscayne Bay, a luxury condominium tower is attracting young, professional athletes from across the globe. These athletes have opted for purchasing a unit at Missoni Baia for good reason; its comprehensive sporting facilities allow for a full-body workout, with an Olympic-length swimming pool, an elevated tennis court and an expansive gym overlooking the bay. As well as training facilities, other amenities are worthy of a luxury resort with daybeds and cabanas lining the numerous pools where residents can indulgently recline before enjoying the private yoga studios or the expansive residents’ only spa with men’s and women’s sauna and steam rooms, and private massage treatment rooms.
Argentinian Carlos “Tucu” Joaquín Correa and Colombian Miguel Angel Borja Hernandez (2017 “Footballer of the Year”), both international soccer stars, recently selected Missoni Baia for their second homes. Correa, 24, is currently a midfielder for the Rome-based Serie A soccer club, SS Lazio, scoring five goals for the team since joining in 2018, while Borja who plays forward for the Brazilian club Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras is the fourth highest paid soccer player in Brazil.
Both players praise the extensive training facilities and amenities while also remarking that Miami is the perfect location for an athlete to exercise, train and recuperate throughout the year.
The Missoni Baia tower is an impressive 649-foot-tall and is an athlete’s delight. An outdoor bridge connects the sixth floor’s indoor amenities suite to the flow-through pool deck, which includes cabanas, an Olympic-sized lap pool, plunge pools, children’s water features, and an elevated tennis court. Boasting one of Miami’s largest spas, additional amenities include a 1,700 square-foot gym with 180-degree bay views, a bayfront lounge and zero edge infinity pool, media room, beauty salon, a children’s playroom, and a pet spa.
Designed by Asymptote Architecture, with landscaping by Enea Garden Design and interiors by Paris Forino, the sculptural tower is the first branded residential collaboration of the iconic Italian fashion brand, Missoni. The trademark bold patterns and bright colors of Missoni’s internationally-recognized brand will be visible throughout the public spaces in the building. Missoni Baia represents the first of several residential real estate ventures from OKO Group, the international property development firm founded by real estate mogul and renowned developer, Vladislav Doronin.
