Muse Condos – Sunny Isles

By: Ines Hegedus-Garcia on May 18, 2015

I am sooo excited about this project, even if it is in Sunny Isles. Muse residences redefine luxury, comfort and scale at a level that is impressive. It’s as if Carlos Ott had been given carte blanche to design the craziest and best spaces with absolutely no restrictions. The size of the rooms, the balconies, the never before seen finishes and technology are mind-blowing.

Muse Condos will satisfy the pickiest and most discerning tastes, but don’t take my word for it. Let me show you the concept and then call me for a presentation.

Muse offers only 68 residences focused on unparalleled amenities and services, dedicated to the highest level of luxury and comfort.  I loved when Craig Studnicky, from ISG said that Muse was the most elegant, high-end condo in the history of Sunny Isles.  And I have to tell you that I was amazed by the unique features and finishes.

muse condos - sunny isles

Muse Condos – Architecture

Let’s start with “starchitect” Carlos Ott, known for sweeping structures of steel and glass. Award winning architect from Uruguay known for international projects like Opera de la Bastille in Paris, the New Dubai Creek Hilton Hotel or National Grand Theater of Hangzhou, China … to name just a few.

Muse is an unparalleled, visually stunning, boutique high rise.  From its grand heights, the sleek lines cascade down to white sands below. Placed upon a pristine, exclusive oceanfront, Muse features an unmarred lower-level appearance with a parking garage folded into the building itself. With parking integrated into the tower’s progressive design, residents enter directly into the lobby upon arrival. Rather than a pool atop a conventional parking podium, the tranquil vanishing-edge pool sits glistening, overlooking the ocean, just steps outside the building’s ground level.  Two residences divide each floor, boasting eleven and twelve-foot ceilings, and running the full sixty-foot width of the tower.  Balconies at the same incredible width, offer expansive outdoor living with breathtaking ocean and intracoastal views.
