Kai at Bay Harbor

By: Ines Hegedus-Garcia on August 13, 2014

I am loving these new buildings in Bay Harbor Islands.  Modest, modern and the perfect scale.  Here’s a project in pre-construction with an estimated completion date of October/November of 2015.

Kai at Bay Harbor

Kai at Bay HarborKai at Bay HarborKai at Bay Harbor  hero_5

Kai at Bay Harbor is designed by Arquitectonica with a total of 7 floors and 57 residences.  There are 1 to 3 bedroom residences available and it’s located on the North side of the east island in Bay Harbor with west exposure on the canal, overlooking single-family homes of Bay Harbor east island.

Kai at Bay Harbor Location Map

We told you about Riva Bay Harbor a few weeks ago, which is already built – but here you have another gorgeous project in an amazing location and pre-construction pricing ranging from $515,000 to $1,225,000 for designer-ready units.
Built by 3D Developers made up of 3 development groups that decided to join forces:  Brick O., Equipo 18, and Blue Sky Developers.  (From Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia and Argentina)

Kai at Bay Harbor Residence Features

  • Glass enclosed balconies
  • European style cabinetry
  • Marble floors in baths
  • Jacuzzis in Master Baths
  • Polished granite countertops
  • Top-of-the-line appliances

Kai at Bay Harbor Building Features and Amenities

  • Pool deck and swimming pool
  • Exterior lounge areas
  • Fully-equipped fitness center
  • 24 hour front desk and concierge
  • Marina

I don’t often get excited about pre-construction projects in Miami and can still count the ones I love in one hand (The Porsche Tower , One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid , Beach House 8, and One Ocean South Beach.) What I love about Kai is not only the scale, but the modest pricing which will make these fly off the market.

We can send you floor plans, brochure and deposit structure upon request, just email us at
