Italian architect Antonio Antonio Citterio’s first condo project in the United States was announced earlier this year.

Situated on an acre of pristine beachfront in the exclusive enclave of Surfside, Florida the 12-story building will feature 16 ultra-luxury residences.

We’ve profiled  Citterio multiple times on this site, he is the visionary behind the highly regarded Bulgari and Mandarin Oriental hospitality projects in Dubai, London, Milan and Bali.

Slated to commence first closings in the summer of 2019, Arte is located at 8955 Collins Avenue in Surfside, a coveted area nestled north of  Miami Beach and between Indian Creek, Bay Harbor Islands and  Bal Harbour.

Arte’s spacious three- to five-bedroom residences range in size from approximately 3,150 to 7,550 square feet and enjoy sweeping views of the ocean.

The residences emulate a Mediterranean lifestyle with expansive terraces clad in travertine with ipe decking that seamlessly blend into modern, open living areas.

Gracious kitchens feature Poliform cabinetry, Italian marble countertops and Gaggenau appliances.

Resort-style amenities include a 75′ indoor swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool, a rooftop tennis court, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, sauna and steam room and a tranquil meditation pond.

Additional facilities include a children’s playroom, residents’ lounge with billiards, catering kitchen for out-of-home entertaining and private temperature-controlled parking spaces.

Outside will stand an original “ART” sculpture by legendary American artist Robert Indiana, who is best known for his iconic “LOVE” sculptures. The lobby will feature “Polychromatic Chronology,” a work by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.
