Opera Tower, Downtown Miami’s landmark condominium rising 56 stories above Biscayne Bay, is undergoing $1.2 million in building enhancements. Scheduled to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2013, the impressive redesign includes the recreational room, lobby, and pool deck — creating a fresh, new look for these spaces.
Tibor Hollo, one of South Florida’s most prominent developers and developer of Opera Tower LLC, has announced a comprehensive plan to further enhance the lifestyle of residents of the premier condominium. In addition, Opera Tower has commissioned industry powerhouse Fortune International to handle the sellout of the remaining luxury residences at the building.
Opera Tower LLC, with the support of its in-house architectural and interior design department, has created a contemporary Euro-Asian design for the lobby and recreational space. Hollo, a graduate of the School of Architecture and Engineering at L’École Polytechnique et l’Université in Paris, France, during the Bauhaus period, serves as an architectural advisor on all of the projects in his sizable real estate portfolio.
he spacious recreational room has been redesigned to feature a stunning fireplace where the use of rock and natural colors will deliver a subtle, earthy ambience. A plasma television, mounted above the unique fireplace, will make the wall a dramatic focal point, as leather, reclining theater seats and sofas add to the warm, inviting retreat where residents can socialize, relax, and entertain.
Exciting changes also are planned for Opera Tower’s lobby where a Chihulyinspired chandelier designed with vibrant, colorful glass will dangle from the 25 plusfoot- high ceilings, making a striking centerpiece. The addition of a transparent, carp wood appliqué on the storefronts in the lobby will subtly separate the retail from the lobby.
The 19,400-square-foot pool deck (including the 2,719-square-foot pool) at Opera Tower is part of the enhancement plan where a neoclassical, tropical design — complete with oversized chaise lounges, canopied sofa cabanas, and wood trestlecovered lounging cabanas — will deliver a South Beach-style retreat, perfect for relaxing or dining poolside.
The all-weather, deep-seated, wicker furniture in bright blues and oranges will be arranged across the expansive pool deck in order to create intimate gathering areas, perfect for daytime or nighttime entertainment. In addition, wicker seating pods will surround both whirlpool spas, and the barbeque and dining facilities are being upgraded.
“We’re making significant changes at Opera Tower and investing a great deal to make life for our residents even more pleasurable,” said Hollo, CEO of Opera Tower LLC.
“We’ve also brought on a sales team that is well-established and takes on challenges with creativity. Fortune International’s successful history and the knowledge of its real estate professionals is what led us to select them to handle the sellout of the remaining units at Opera Tower,” he addwd.
Located in Downtown Miami’s Media and Entertainment District, the unique elliptical design of Opera Tower showcases expansive, wrap-around terraces that flaunt breathtaking, panoramic views of Biscayne Bay. The approximate 300 remaining residences at Opera Tower have a variety of efficient floor plans, including studio, one bedroom, and two-bedroom units with prices starting at $225,000.
“We are extremely confident that with the impressive enhancements underway at Opera Tower, combined with the condominium’s spectacular location and magnificent views, we will have tremendous success in moving the remaining units at this luxury development,” said Fortune International president Edgardo Defortuna.
