An art-stuffed, 650-foot-tall condo tower named Muse is in the works for Sunny Isles Beach, and it’s majorly statuesque.
The 47-story tower, located at 17141 Collins Avenue, will be developed by New York-based Property Markets Group and Aventura-based S2 Development, The Miami Herald reported. And every one of the 68 units will get a sculpture by Albanian artist Helidon Xhixha.
“He is going to do art in every apartment and around the grounds and lobby,” Kevin Maloney, founder and CEO of PMG, told The Miami Herald.
Carlos Ott came up with the concept of the svelte tower, and Sieger Suarez Architectural Partnership filled out the design.
Residences will start at 2,360 square feet, and they will include two full-floor penthouses measuring more than 5,800 square feet each. The units will average $1,300 a square foot, with lower floors around less than $1,000 a square foot and upper floors hitting $2,000 a square foot.
Muse will break ground in June. Buyers need to put in a 50 percent deposit, with 20 percent due at contract signing, 10 percent at groundbreaking and 20 percent when the development is topped off.
More about that art: Xhixha will consult with every unit owner and design a sculpture for the residence. Xhixha’s works play with stainless steel and its reflective properties. “I don’t sculpt materials. I use materials to sculpt light,” the artist states on his official site.
Xhixha has collaborated before with PMG before; his art decorates the sales center for Echo Brickell, which PMG co-developed with JDS Development Group:
