J. MILTON BRINGS GAUDI INSPIRED RENTAL COMMUNITY TO ARTS DISTRICT
WITH MIAMI BAY WATERFRONT MIDTOWN RESIDENCES
LUXURY ENCLAVE DESIGNED TO TOUCH SENSIBILITY OF GAUDI AFICIONADOS

MIAMI, FL (May 5, 2017) — Miami Bay Waterfront Midtown Residences is making its debut as a distinctively artistic project with architecture inspired by Gaudi. It is one of the only rental communities in Miami’s now flourishing Midtown neighborhood to sit directly on Biscayne Bay. With Spanish influences throughout the three-building,176-unit community at 551 NE 39th Street, the community is designed to look and feel like a charming Mediterranean respite, while sitting at the edge of city life.

Miami Bay Waterfront Midtown Residences is located at the gateway to Midtown, just over the Julia Tuttle Causeway and minutes from South Beach. Adjacent to the property is the soon-to-be-reimagined 2.9-acre Albert Pallot Park complete with cardio running trail, children’s playground, large green spaces and kayak launch.

Miami Bay Waterfront Midtown Residences is intended to recreate the ambiance of a Spanish resort town by transporting dwellers to the world-famous Park Güell in Barcelona. With artistry and location the focal points, the community will attract those who want the proximity to restaurants, shops and city life, within a more authentically European and serene setting.

In true J. Milton style, every detail was thought out to make Miami Bay Waterfront Midtown Residences a truly upscale rental project. “For years, I was looking for the opportunity to bring the architecture and artistry of Gaudi to South Florida,” said Developer Joseph Milton. “This art-inspired enclave will reflect our standard of craftsmanship, timeless design, sensible utility and carefully considered amenities. It will also add a statement piece to both the City of Miami and to our portfolio.”

The developer was so intent in bringing a celebrated piece of Barcelona to Miami that the firm commissioned internationally acclaimed artist, author and lecturer Gina Cayford, who specializes in mosaic tile installations, to design the public area installations.

“The watercolor depictions represent the ebb and flow of life’s journey,” explains Cayford, founder of Miami Mosaic Academy and founding member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists. “The benches also have mystical elements to them; the circular pattern depicts Heaven on Earth while another symbolizes Unity, to pay tribute to the diversity of the people who have worked on this project.”

In addition to being an art lover’s dream, Miami Bay Waterfront Midtown Residences is pet friendly. Common areas are fully equipped with USB charging stations, mobile phone boosters, music and Wi-Fi throughout. Other amenities include a waterfront pool and sand beach; multiple indoor and outdoor lounging and entertaining areas; a health and fitness arena complete with men’s and women’s steam room and sauna; techno gym equipment and a punching bag; a business center; covered parking garage; and gated entry with controlled access.

Each residence, with breathtaking Biscayne Bay and city views from expansive balconies, comes with upgraded Italian-style kitchens with white quartz countertops, high-end fixtures and full-size washers and dryers. Floor plans include one, two and three-bedroom apartments that range in size from 740 to 1,468 square feet.

The project is scheduled to be complete and ready for move in by May 5. For leasing information, call 844-587-0640 or visit www.miamibayresidences.com.

So using broken tile to cover two privacy walls and weird gables makes this “Gaudi-inspired”? I think not…

That’s a huge insult to Gaudi. I can’t believe such an uninspiring, architecturally vapid development was ever allowed on the waterfront.

Only a person on drugs would sit in traffic 24/7 (if that’s even possible) at an intersection.

My 1978’s bathroom with tiles is Gaudí inspired

The few tiles and the art are pretty but the building it self is more Lady Gaga than Gaudí

If adding color tiles to a wall is Gaudí
Every bathroom from 1960 until 1990 is Gaudí

Gaudí is Art Nouveau…, this building is Nuevo (new)

It’s Architectonica fault this building is not really Gaudí

The building is Faux-Gaudí

Oh! No, this building is not Gaudí… its Le Courvoisier, because its north to the curve of the highway exit

This is a glorified project. Gaudi my A$$. If 1/1 is really asking for $2100, they need to get their heads examined (both the developers and the tenants that sign the lease).

The starting price for a 1/1 is $2,106 and a 2/2 is $2,858.00.

Keep stuff like this in places like Coral Gables, areas near the waterfront should be nothing but highrises.

Tell it to Bay Point residents. You’ll be tarred and feathered advocating for high-rises backing on to their neighborhood.

Bathroom tile stuck onto Doral-ass apartment complexes is not Gaudi-like in any way.

Next to Bay Point, one would expect this to be Gaudi and not some building with some tiles by a cheapo. We fought WWII for America, Miami, and Edgewater to become a pile of shit.

To say that an pedestrian building, in which lack of creativity and some broken tiles are its main attribute, is Gaudi-inspired simply makes me cry.
