Muse, a tall, narrow condominium unveiled for Sunny Isles Beach, will tout something different: a sculpture by artist Helidon Xhixha for each unit.
Xhixha, an Albanian-born artist whose light-reflecting steel sculpture have been offered at Art Miami and Art Basel’s Swiss fair, will consult with unit buyers and design a piece for each, the developer said.
“He is going to do art in every apartment and around the grounds and lobby", said Kevin Maloney, founder and CEO of New York-based Property Markets Group, which is launching the project with co-developer S2 Development of Aventura.
The 649-foot-high building — which will match the height of the Porsche Design Tower and Mansions at Acqualina, two other luxury projects in Sunny Isles Beach — will stretch to the maximum permitted in the area by the Federal Aviation Administration.
With oceanfront parcels all but gone, the ultra-sleek 47-story, 68-unit tower will be shoehorned into a less than one-acre site with 100 feet of oceanfront at 17141 Collins Ave. With setbacks, the building will be just 60 feet wide facing the ocean.
Most floors will have two units, one on the east, with a thick support core, and one on the west.
