SUNNY ISLES BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A new condo tower on Sunny Isles Beach will include a sculpture by artist Helidon Xhixha in each unit.
The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/K1fkrS ) reports the tower named Muse will feature a 47-story, 68-unit tower built on a less than one-acre site along Collins Avenue. It is expected to break ground in June.
Kevin Maloney, the founder and CEO of New York-based Property Markets Group, says the Albanian-born artist will consult with condo buyers and design a piece for each. He'll also provide artwork for the lobby and grounds.
The Herald says the 694-foot-high building will match the height of two other Sunny Isles Beach luxury projects - the Porsche Design Tower and Mansions at Acqualina. It will reach the maximum height allowed in the area by the Federal Aviation Administration.
