Miami has long been considered a playground for the rich and famous, but the city is now attracting an unprecedented number of international buyers, eager to stake their claim in the luxury condo market. Aria on the Bay, a 53 story tower with 648 units, is now over 50 percent sold, with the majority of purchasers hailing from South America — hardly surprising, as the developer, The Melo Group, got their start in Buenos Aires.
Unit A, a three bedroom, four bathroom plus den, would be well suited for a family of high rollers. A private foyer with keyed elevator access creates a sense of seclusion. The entryway divides the living and sleeping areas — to the right is an open-concept kitchen/living/dining area, featuring nine foot floor-to-ceiling windows and custom-designed cabinetry. A terrace runs all the way along the curved edge of the suite, offering breathtaking views of the bay.
Wake up to the sound of waves crashing in the master bedroom, featuring his and hers walk-in closets. The ensuite is characterized by a freestanding tub, frameless glass walk-in shower and double sink vanity. The two additional bedrooms offer ample closet space (walk-in or built-in wardrobe style) and each have direct access to a full bathroom. The den is a flexible space that could be used as a home office or playroom. While Unit A may be bought as a second or third home, we wouldn’t be surprised if it fast became the buyer’s favorite.
