Boutique Bayfront Development Curated by Piero Lissoni and Arquitectonica Slated for Delivery Winter 2021  

As the U.S. prepares to reopen to international tourism this November, European buyers eager to return to South Florida’s own riviera should look no further.

Dreams of rosé filled days and glamorous nights in St. Tropez, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat or Monaco will soon become a year-round reality, as Monaco Yacht Club & Residences, the widely-anticipated, new boutique Bayfront residences and private marina well-sited on one of Miami Beach’s last remaining waterfront parcels, rapidly approaches completion. Optimum Development USA’s internationally-lauded project, which broke ground in February 2020, is on schedule to be delivered this Winter.

“We’re thrilled to come one step closer to the building’s final stage and opening the doors to our residents who will soon call Monaco Yacht Club & Residences home,” said Matthew Barry, Managing Director of Optimum Development USA. “Our unprecedented sales success, including the sale of our two impressive penthouses, is a testament to the dedication of our savvy brokers and the one-of-a-kind South of France lifestyle that this development celebrates.”

For those seeking the Mediterranean’s Miami match, Monaco Yacht Club & Residences offers just thirty-nine luxurious waterfront residences delivered fully finished with curated interiors by two of the most esteemed names in design, Piero Lissoni and Arquitectonica.  The world-class design team introduces a new dimension in sophisticated European design and elegant, waterfront living synonymous with the French Riviera to Miami Beach that has attracted well-heeled buyers from the U.S. and around the world.  Now more than 65% sold-out, steadfast sales have been attributed to its tranquil and exclusive Bayfront setting; large, airy offerings; and one-of-a-kind waterfront amenities such as its own private marina, that up the ante on luxury and convenience.

“Seeing Monaco Yacht Club & Residences come to life and now in its final dimensions is an especially proud moment,” said Edgardo Defortuna, president and CEO of Fortune International Group, the exclusive brokerage of the project. “The global response to the property 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.”

Led by Monaco Yacht Club & Residences’ general contractor, Moss Construction, construction focuses on the completion of the nautically-themed, 12-story boutique building’s breathtaking rooftop terrace featuring panoramic views of the Miami skyline and a pool with poolside chaise lounge chairs, Jacuzzi and shaded lounge areas with a grill for entertaining.  An exclusive enclave with its own private marina offering for residents, the building’s boardwalk and 12 private dock slips were recently completed.

“The response to Monaco Yacht Club & Residences’ boat slips has been extraordinary,” added Barry. “With only a handful of slips remaining, our buyers recognize the unparalleled value and convenience of having their boat docked right at their doorstep, combined with the first-class services offered by a luxury condominium lifestyle.”

Monaco Yacht Club & Residences will include one to four-bedroom residences, ranging in size from 918 to nearly 5,000 square feet, and two one-of-a-kind penthouses featuring spacious living areas, private terraces, and summer kitchens. Primed for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining, the meticulously designed homes will feature expansive wraparound terraces – each with sweeping views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Miami skyline – as well as contemporary Italian kitchens by Boffi.  Additional highlights within the residences include stone countertops, 10 to 11-foot-high ceilings throughout, large walk-in closets, private elevator entrances, and premium bathroom interiors featuring imported Italian marble flooring, large tubs, and frameless, glass-enclosed rainfall showers with designer faucets.

With exclusive sales and marketing handled by Fortune Development Sales, Monaco Yacht Club & Residences are priced from $1.1 million. For more information, please call 305.749.9126, visit the website at, or schedule a showing at the sales gallery located at 6897 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach.
