Developer Optimum Asset Management USA celebrated the milestone today in tandem with the boutique Bayfront condominium’s exclusive sales broker, Fortune Development Sales, and the general contractor, Moss Construction.  Located at 6800 Indian Creek Drive, Monaco Yacht Club & Residences is an exclusive enclave of thirty-nine luxurious waterfront residences and a private marina in collaboration with two of the most esteemed names in design, Piero Lissoni and Arquitectonica.

To commemorate the topping off, the development team -- including Matthew Barry, Managing Director of Optimum Asset Management USA; Jamie Telchin, Executive Director of Optimum Asset Management USA; Edgardo Defortuna, President and CEO of Fortune International Group; and Andrew McAllister, Co-President of Moss Construction South Florida -- took to the top of the building, where they popped champagne and posed for photos against a dramatic background of Biscayne Bay and the city skyline. Moss Construction additionally hosted a celebratory lunch for 250 of the company’s construction workers, engineers, and other contractors who have been instrumental in the tower’s rise.

Completion of the internationally-lauded project, which broke ground in February 2020, is on schedule to be delivered at the end of this year.

“Seeing Monaco Yacht Club & Residences come to life and now in its final dimensions is an especially proud moment,” said Matthew Barry, Managing Director of Optimum Asset Management USA. “The global response to the tower has been nothing short of compelling and a testament to its international appeal. Now more so than ever before, buyers are recognizing the importance of having the intimacy of a full-service boutique building combined with the exclusivity of being located on one of the last remaining waterfront properties in the area.”

With a coveted location in Miami Beach’s MiMo District, Monaco Yacht Club & Residences introduces a new dimension in sophisticated European design and elegant, waterfront living synonymous with the French Riviera to Miami Beach.

To be delivered fully-finished, each of the modern unit interiors was meticulously curated with precise attention to detail, inclusive of the refined Italian-made fixtures and finishes, with Arrigoni wide plank wood flooring from Austria.  The design palette of warm whites and rich woods for the lobby and the premier “Resident’s Lounge” -- featuring a library and breakfast bar for leisurely waterfront dining -- evoke a timeless, classic mood reminiscent of a luxurious Côte d’Azur summer resort and responds to the building’s program of luxury living, fun lifestyle, laid-back environment, and relaxed atmosphere.

“Luxury buyers from across the globe have been specifically seeking this project out for its boutique, full-service offering, unparalleled Bayfront location, and the rare opportunity to dock one’s boat in their very own backyard,” said Edgardo Defortuna, President and CEO of Fortune International Group, the project’s exclusive broker. “Combining the spectacular style and extraordinary talents of Piero Lissoni and Bernardo Fort-Brescia with an array of first-class services and amenities, Monaco Yacht Club & Residences celebrate the very best Miami Beach has to offer.”
