Design & Real Estate

True Standout

We’ve already seen The Related Group’s gorgeous Icon building in Brickell, which has attracted some seriously A-list residents thanks to its stunning design.

Now Biscayne’s up-and-coming Edgewater area will play home to the newest entrant into the Icon family: Icon Bay. The 43-story tower will be designed by the award-winning firm Arquitectonica, melding beautifully into its bayfront park home. And of course, it will feature a wide range of the luxury amenities Icon residents have come to know and love, from an infinity pool with private cabanas to a spa and tennis courts;

Energy Saver

Grade Makers
Selling your property? Here are 3 quick upgrades that can make a difference when it comes time to sit at the negotiating table — sans a huge investment in time or cash.

Outer Limits
Curb appeal is no myth. Spending a weekend nicely landscaping your yard can be key to attracting buyers. Pull weeds, cut overgrown shrubs or trees, and keep things mowed. Mulch or potted plants are cheap, low-maintenance upgrades.
