CANVAS CONDOMINIUM TOPS OFF IN MIAMI’S ARTS + ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT

Sleek, contemporary tower with Ocean, Bay, sunset and Miami skyline views,

is slated to be delivered to residents next spring

MIAMI (August 11, 2017) – NR Investments’ highly anticipated CANVAS condominium tower, the flagship residential building of Miami’s burgeoning Arts + Entertainment District (A+E), has officially topped-off construction at 37 stories. The announcement was made in tandem with general contractor Stiles Construction and the project’s exclusive broker, Fortune International Realty.

The art and design inspired building, which comprises 513 residences — the largest of its size in the A+E — broke ground in February 2016. Completion is now scheduled for the first quarter of 2018.

Prices for the remaining homes range from $345,000 to $654,000, with sizes encompassing 620 sq. ft. to 1,110 sq. ft. With CANVAS being Fannie Mae approved, prospective buyers are able to capitalize on reduced deposit requirements and other benefits of the program, furthering access to millennials and first-time buyers.

“Buyers have been flocking to this project from across the globe,” said Ron Gottesmann, Principal of NR Investments. “We know this neighborhood presents a great deal of appeal among those looking for a central location in a neighborhood being fueled by the arts – one that puts residents within walking distance of area landmarks and top entertainment venues. For those seeking a second home or primary residence, CANVAS represents the opportunity to be at the epicenter of everything Miami has to offer.”

NR Investments and its principals are the founders of the Arts + Entertainment District, an enclave flanked by Wynwood, Edgewater and downtown Miami. CANVAS is ideally located near the Adrienne Arsht Center, Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, Pérez Art Museum Miami and Wynwood Walls. In a nod to that influence, one of the newly unveiled hallmarks of the tower will be a massive, collaborative installation involving 22 globally renowned street artists and yielding more than 200 original works of art for the building’s residential corridors and common areas.

“What we’ve built in the Arts + Entertainment District has been transformative…and CANVAS is a direct reflection of that,” said Nir Shoshani, Principal, NR Investments. “Overall, this is an important moment for the city as it is another example of the strong interest among buyers to live in the urban core of Miami and take advantage of its art-infused offerings.”

Located on more than an acre of land at 1630 N.E. 1st Avenue, CANVAS boasts a contemporary design with views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, the city skyline, and exceptional, unobstructed sunset views. Amenities include sunrise and sunset pool decks, a serene indoor/outdoor yoga garden, a state-of-the-art gym, a glass-enclosed racquetball court, Zen spa/sauna treatment rooms, and a multimedia screening and theater facility. A Metromover stop is steps from the project, as are recreational facilities and major thoroughfares, including I-95, I-395 and I-195.

Looking at the first photo, one can see the amount of empty land in Downtown Miami is quite large. I hope more projects will follow, there is a chance to make this area into something really beautiful.

Nothing of “something really beautiful”,just more of the same. .Miami city officials have no clue how to make Miami
really beautiful city.What we really need is clean and safe city,better roads,better landscaping,better schools and hospitals,better parks,better BAYSIDE MARKET,better BRICKELL bridge,improved Biscayne Blvd. more attraction for guests and tourists and, of course,much,much,better PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION (including elevated METRO to Miami Beach).
Everything else is just more of the SAME.

Um yeah, sure. In the meantime, like Marc305 said, we want to see all of these empty lots filled in first, that’s more realistic than your christmas wish list.

No, a lot of them had fabric shops, dress factories, upholstery shops, and electronic stores.

Sorry, that comment above was meant for the Anonymous who asked “Has that land always been vacant or did something cause previous developments to move and be demolished?”

Has that land always been vacant or did something cause previous developments to move and be demolished? Seems weird that so much development pushed north and west if that land has been there.

The neighborhood used to be called “Miramar,” and was a lot like Edgewater. It had many nice old houses until city officials called it a slum and everything got torn down for a wasteland Detroit-style. Hopefully, we’ll continue to see redevelopment with the good quality of the aforementioned building.

Can’t believe that many open lots are in that area. Who wouldn’t want to live or work in that area close to everything?

Because this is the USA, people like living in gated communities, 90 minutes from work, car dependent and isolated from everything. The areas that are growing are Doral, Miramar and Homestead. Choice real estate land is left empty and for undesirables. From the Design District to the end of Brickell there are so many empty lots it’s pathetic. That would never happen in Europe, Asia or the Middle East. Those are the areas that would have to first be developed, close to everything and with mass transit infrastructure.

You do see it in those regions you mention except they push their poverty to the suburbs.

You really haven’t grasp the big picture concerning these areas with these empty lots, have you? When people finally understood the concept of “Land Banking,” that created most of what you now see. Just buy, sit on it, and wait for someone to offer you five times or more what you paid for.

Do you think developers are investing billions of dollars because they want Downtown Miami to look pretty?
Your comment only applies to 60 y/o or older people who grew up in the boring American gated Subdivisions. Millennials want to live in the city, use public transportation and walk everywhere.
BTW. Why they didn’t built something with a Industrial lofty look, like the Filling Station?

Your right more people want to live close to the core I think the problem is price. Land ain’t cheap in this are so for developers make a good return they ask prices you have to be damn near rich to aford. I would love to live in downtown if it was more affordable.

“Remaining homes” are $500-$600 sq ft-hmm seems rather pricey for what you get according to floorplans on the website.This “aint” Brickell.

LOL. The latest nouveau riche trend is to be as trendsetting as possible (i.e. anti-Brickell). A walkability score of as close to zero (0) is a huge plus. Canvas will check off a lot of boxes for us folk.

Statistics across the country are at complete odds with your opinion. Walkability is one of the greatest contributor to home prices. I for one enjoy walking everywhere without needing a car while watching a bunch of angry people sit in traffic honking their horns and wasting their lives behind the wheel.

Meanwhile there is NO Gym (LA fitness), NO Home Depot or Lowes (Planned earlier at the Bayview Market now scrapped), NO Movie Theaters, NO Major nightclubs (One opened called House but it got closed down by the competitors). Bayview Market Lot should have stayed true to original plan of Lowes and added a LA fitness. Thousands of downtown residents that do not have these. And they despise going to Brickell for a gym.
