New One-Bedroom Model Residence by Epicoutu Design Unveiled at Opera Tower

MIAMI, FL— Opera Tower, the luxury, high-rise condominium overlooking Biscayne Bay in Downtown Miami, is debuting a new model residence designed by Epicoutu Design, one of the hottest new interior design firms in the region. Selected for their modern, contemporary style, Epicoutu Design transformed the one-bedroom residence, located on the 35th floor of the tower, into a chic but comfortable living area by incorporating stylish furnishings, maximizing the space, and highlighting the spectacular, panoramic views.

“Epicoutu’s vision for the model at Opera Tower is to appeal to all styles. With breathtaking views, we wanted to keep the focal point and just enhance the living space with textures and beautiful artwork,” says Epicoutu Design President Sismai Roman. “We added a gorgeous, neutral wallpaper with reflective tones to accent the living room, creating a defined space. The dining room is framed with a large gilded mirror, providing 360 degree views from wherever you are standing. Adding accessories like the oversized hurricane lamp or the wooden wall art provides a sense of eclectic taste to the design in an otherwise contemporary space,” says Roman.

Developer financing is available for up to 50% of the purchase price. Whether buyers purchase units with cash or with developer financing, they will be able to take advantage of an exciting developer leaseback opportunity. The developer, through its affiliated management group, will leaseback the owners’ units for up to three years from closing. During that time, buyers will receive an annual rent equal to 6% of the purchase price. Monthly condominium maintenance fees are paid by the developer, with no rental commission fees or property management expenses. Buyers pay only property taxes and insurance. Fortune International is heading sales for the property.

Developed by Florida East Coast Realty (FECR), residences at Opera Tower feature stainless steel appliances, European gourmet kitchens, luxurious baths, and granite countertops. Opera Tower also offers residents 24/7 security, concierge services, high-speed Internet and cable television, supervised garage parking for each residence with available 24/7 valet service, a lushly-landscaped recreation deck overlooking scenic Biscayne Bay (featuring an oversized swimming pool and multiple whirlpool spas), and a fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio and weight training equipment. A social hall, media room, and fully-equipped business center also add to the building’s impressive list of amenities.

NoVe Kitchen & Bar, a fabulous “Eurasian” style restaurant and lounge, is located on the ground floor. Additionally, a gourmet market, dry cleaner, beauty salon, and gift shop all are located on-site to make life at Opera Tower even more convenient and enjoyable.

Opera Tower’s location in the heart of the vibrant Media and Entertainment District offers residents a wide array of dining, shopping, and entertainment venues. Opera Tower is just blocks from the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts—with its world-renowned Opera House and Performance Halls—and the AmericanAirlines Arena—home to the electrifying Miami Heat and other major concerts and events. Further, Margaret Pace Park, Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center, Bayside Marketplace, Museum Park, South Beach, Brickell, Midtown Miami, Wynwood, and the Design District are all at residents’ fingertips. The Metromover, making stops all over Downtown, also has a station within one block of the building.
