AQUA and Allison Island trace their existence to two of Miami Beach’s most important and influential real estate developers. Beginning with Carl Fisher’s decision to create a monument to his friend Jim Allison and concluding with Craig Robins’ vision of a tropical urban community on the site, the history of this unique island location parallels the growth of South Florida and reveals the limitless possibilities available in this unmatched destination.
Surrounded by water and defined by its thoughtful combination of modernist architecture, pedestrian friendly streets and unmatched public amenities, AQUA is a perfectly planned community that is intimate, protected and thoroughly distinct.. A true monument to the innovative ideas of the urbanist design movement, AQUA is a genuine and vibrant community that offers exceptional amenities, exquisite art and an unmatched location to the 151 families who call this island village home.
AQUA is, and will always be one, of the most luxurious places to live in all of Miami Beach. Created with convenience and comfort in mind, AQUA offers an array of unmatched amenities exclusively for residents. From a full-service spa to a mango grove to a neighborhood swimming pool, AQUA ensures that everything one could want in life is always within easy reach.Several signature art installations commissioned by Craig Robins and Dacra exclusively for AQUA truly help to define the property’s unique look and bring world-class public art to Miami. Additionally, Mr. Robins has also lent numerous important pieces from his private collection to the project. These are on display throughout AQUA’s buildings and common spaces.
Mid-rise CondosAQUA features three mid-rise condos that are as impressive as the architects who share their names. The Chatham, Spear and Gorlin buildings were each created to maximize views, minimize scale and stand in sharp contrast to the dominance of the giant towers that now define South Beach. Each of these exclusive mid-rise condos reaches only 11 stories and includes a limited number of individual residences ranging between three and four bedrooms.Island Homes
