Veteran Miami developers Ugo Colombo of CMC Group and Valerio Morabito of Morabito Properties prepare to break ground this week on Onda, a new boutique luxury condominium in Miami’s exclusive Bay Harbor Islands neighborhood. Designed by world-renowned architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica, the 8-story waterfront development, now rising at 1135 103rd Street, will boast more than 300 linear feet of bay frontage, a private marina, and sweeping views of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Construction is expected to be completed in 2023.
News of Onda’s groundbreaking comes as the next wave of residential development in Miami takes hold, fueled by an uptick in demand from domestic buyers looking to relocate from major U.S. cities who are attracted to Florida’s desirable quality of life, lower business and living expenses, and tax-friendly policies.
More than 60% of Onda’s 41 luxury residences have already been pre-sold, with the majority of its buyers hailing from the U.S. Impeccably finished residences include two- to four-bedroom plus den layouts measuring between 1,809 and 3,535 square feet in size, with four penthouse residences measuring up to 5,073 square feet – two of which include private rooftop pool decks. Prices range from $1.8 million to over $9.5 million.
“We set out to create an ultra-luxurious intimate building with a handful of units and residents in one of the nicest waterfront communities in South Florida,” said Ugo Colombo, Founder of CMC Group. “Onda’s boutique exclusivity, commanding bay views, and top-quality finishes and materials will brand it as a standout property for a long time to come.”
“Onda will deliver a one-of-a-kind living experience that you won’t find anywhere else in Miami,” said Valerio Morabito, CEO of Morabito Properties. “Our unique location in Bay Harbor Islands offers residents the best of both worlds – the convenience of being connected to the energy of Miami Beach with access to an abundance of restaurants, shopping and entertainment options just minutes away, with the privacy that comes with living in a private family-oriented neighborhood away from the congestion.”
