When you tour properties in Miami, what probably stands out is the condo lobbies. The Most notable development is the Condo with the Jeff Koons, or, the one on 400 Park Avenue South, developed by Santangelo with the Toll Brothers City Living, and the 12-foot- Orly Genger fresh watercolor.
Art in Condominiums
Argentinean Billionaire developer and art collector Eduardo Costantini is a renowned real estate developer who uses art to distinguish his luxury Miami condos. His finished project which began in 2013 has the same distinct artwork designs.
Another great art enthusiast is Costantini, the founder of Latin America’s biggest modern art gallery, Buenos Aires’ MALBA. Constantini selected two fine sculptures by artist Jeff Koons for his Oceana Bal Harbour condo in Miami specifically for the condo lobbies.
In 2015, $66 billion worth of art was sold at auction— where most of it sold in New York — prominent real estate developers have embraced artwork in Condo lobbies to convince and attract buyers and show them that they understand artistic tastes. Developers have harnessed the emotional influence of contemporary art to engage Miami Condo hunters.
Miami Condo developers see art as a primary element, even in the rentals. Cheryl Urban VP of marketing and branding describes it as “timeless art which adds value and energy to a building and is a way to add inspiration to the interiors”. Santangelo described the art in Condo lobbies saying “since the success of ‘Urban Rattle’ ” — Charlie Hewitt’s teasing monument that she acquired for Equity’s Ten23 building in 2012— “they are bringing me in with the architect.”
The 199 Mott, Alfa Development in Nolita, features a one-person show by art photographer Sebastian Piras in two Condos. The apartment sold instantly because the buyer understood that fine art is woven into the structure of the building and the neighborhood.

The Armani Miami Condos is the latest partnership between Gil Dezer Development and the Related Group. The two real estate developers created premium Oceanfront Residences by Armani. The Sunny Isles Beach Condo Project – Armani houses were designed by renowned architect Cesar Pelli the Adrienne Arsht Center designer for the Arts Theater in Downtown Miami.
Ritz-Carlton Residential Development
The Ritz-Carlton Miami Condos on Miami Beach has also embraced more artistic amenities and diversions such as its Piero Lissoni- waterfront design. The building has an art studio complete with easels, ceramics and woodwork stations, in partnership with Tatiana Blanco-a Miami sculptor.
Not everyone buying an apartment is art savvy. But everyone recognizes a piece of art that makes you feel good — especially when placed in the Lobby, or right at your front door.
