OKO Group’s tower Missoni Baia in Edgewater reaches half way point in construction

The newest luxury high-rise in the Miami skyline is reaching new heights. Vertical construction of Missoni Baia, a 57-story waterfront glass tower now rising along Biscayne Bay at 777 NE 26th Terrace in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood, has reached the halfway mark. The building’s general contractor, Civic Construction, has completed the skyscraper’s 28th floor, with about one full level expected to be completed every week going forward until top-off in March 2021.

Missoni Baia is the vision of international real estate magnate Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of OKO Group, and Cain International. OKO Group and Cain International launched construction of the 649-foot-tall (198-meter) tower in 2017 and the project is slated for delivery in late 2021.

“Building Missoni Baia to its midpoint milestone is a remarkable moment for our team as we bring this elegantly designed, landmark project to life,” said developer Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of OKO Group. 

“Miami is a dynamic gateway city and Missoni Baia represents the kind of luxury product that we strongly believe will continue to draw domestic and international interest,” said Jonathan Goldstein, CEO of Cain International. “This milestone is a testament to the team’s diligence and hard work despite the challenges presented by the current environment.”

Missoni Baia’s modern architectural design and sleek, minimalist art-inspired façade is being brought to life by architect Hani Rashid of Asymptote Architecture, with a landscape designed by Enzo Enea of Enea Garden Design.

As Missoni’s first-ever branded residential tower, the Italian design and fashion house is incorporating its trademark colorful design palette and Missoni Home furniture collection into the tower’s vibrant interiors, including all public spaces and amenity areas. New York designer Paris Forino, under the creative direction of Angela and Rosita Missoni, has envisioned the tower’s elegantly crafted residences, furnishings, and artworks.
