Pablo Atchugarry's "Untitled" at Paraiso, Miami.

Miami’s cosmopolitan vibe, increasingly expressed through contemporary art and design, is in full bloom at the four-tower Paraiso master planed community. The Related Group’s newest enclave of contemporary creativity is taking shape on a five-acre bay front parcel in east Edgewater.

At the Arquitectonica-designed waterfront complex located off Biscayne Boulevard, the world’s top architects and interior designers are creating a design-centered community that will provide residents with the privacy and amenities they value, while enhancing the neighborhood with an art-filled public park. 


A black marble sculpture by master sculptor Pablo Atchugarry was recently unveiled at the Paraiso community . Untitled's sinuous texture and curvilinear form exemplifies Atchugarry’s signature approach and resonates with The Related Group’s (the developer of the community) vision for Paraiso as a cultured, urbanist paradise. The decision to collaborate with Atchugarry for this particular piece was inspired by both his work and his own vision, which resonates profoundly with The Related Group’s charge to animate and inspire via public art and support for art education. Atchugarry has dedicated himself these last few years to the development of the Fundación Pablo Atchugarry, an exhibition space, sculpture park and educational facility that receives and trains thousands of students every year. Untitled now resides permanently at Paraiso and can be seen at the entrance to the development’s waterfront sales gallery on 600 NE 31st Street. The piece will remain on the site as an addition to the community’s art-filled public park upon completion.

A beach club designed by Meyer Davis with a restaurant featuring new cuisine by Michael Schwartz, the James Beard Award winner for Best Chef South in 2010, will enhance the experience for residents and visitors of the community alike.

Interiors of the first tower, Paraiso Bay, will be crafted by London-based United Designers, led by Keith Hobbs, whose clients include George Clooney and U2.  Enea Studios from Zurich is designing an inspired landscaping plan for the complex, and Related has assembled a team of top designers to put their distinctive stamps on each tower. Italian superstar Piero Lissoni will design ONE Paraiso and GranParaiso, world-renowned Karim Rashid will design tower Paraiso Bayviews.

“Each member of the international design team we have assembled agrees that the sum of Paraiso Bay’s individual elements can add up to a single, spectacular whole,” said Jorge Pérez. “Our plan is to transform this five-acre gem of a property into the epicenter of Edgewater.” A partnership with nearby National YoungArts Foundation will bring vibrant works by a new generation of artists to the property, keeping the innovative sensibility fresh and contemporary.

Paraiso’s prized bay front location between Miami’s Design District and downtown Miami, has already attracted international celebrities including acclaimed DJ and music producer David Guetta, Barcelona-born World No. 1 tennis champion Arantxa Sánchez Vicario and her family, and NBA champion Manu Ginóbili, guard for the San Antonio Spurs. They along with other buyers were drawn to the luxury condo for its privacy, fabulous amenities, and ideal location.

The Paraiso master planned community’s prices average $600 per square foot, a relative bargain for bay front residences. Amenities include a boutique beach club, tennis courts, port-cochere entrances, restaurant, heated swimming pools, pool-side cabanas, outdoor spa, jogging circuit, water sports and activities, wine cellar, cigar lounge, teen game room, fitness center, spa, sauna and more.

Sales are led by Related Realty in collaboration with Fortune Development Sales.  For more information please visit or call 305-533-1350.
