The Related Group Announces Baltus House

Luxury condo project to rise steps from the Design District
More than 50 percent reserved in 30 days

MIAMI (Monday, July 8) – The Related Group, in partnership with Strategic Properties, introduce Baltus House as their latest condo development in Miami, and already are reporting more than 50 percent reserved in 30 days with remarkable pricing from $199,900.

Located at 4250 Biscayne Boulevard on the cusp of the Design District, the 15-story Baltus House will face Biscayne Bay and boast unobstructed water views to the east, overlooking the prestigious Bay Point neighborhood. Looking inside, Baltus House will have a decidedly contemporary Spanish flare.

The project takes its name from Baltus Collection, the high-end, contemporary Spanish furniture company that will design interiors and furnishings for the project. Founded by designer Javier Martin, the brand is known for its clean lines, generous proportions and dynamic materials.

“An exclusive interior design from Baltus Collection will be the perfect complement to the artistic experience the building has to offer,” said Martin. “Baltus House was meticulously designed to bring residents an exquisite living experience in this one-of-a-kind project.”

Jorge Perez, Chairman and CEO of The Related Group, selected the sophisticated and contemporary design house to provide a perfect accompaniment to the elegant curved lines of the building after working with Martin on his own penthouse interiors.

Baltus House features 167 luxury condo units each to be sold with European-design kitchens, stainless steel appliances, carpet and tile flooring.

Residents of the one-, two and three-bedroom units will live steps from the Design District – Miami’s hip neighborhood dedicated to art and design, currently being transformed to be home to the biggest names in fashion design. Shops such as Cartier, Hermes, Prada, and Louis Vuitton have already opened their doors, and many more high-end brands are to come, together with an array of fine dining choices.The bustling neighborhood hosts an array of cultural events including the Art + Design Night on the second Saturday of each month where the focus is on culture, creativity, and fine cuisine. Baltus House residents will enjoy the luxury of also being close to the bustling Midtown area as well as Wynwood art district . And to enjoy the talent of some of the best young artists in the country, residents won’t have to go far as the Frank Gehry designed YoungArts campus is a short walk away. Also located close by are Downtown, Brickell, and Miami Beach.

In continuing with The Related Group’s commitment to integrating art into its buildings, common areas of Baltus House will feature art pieces from Perez’ private collection. Also on display will be artwork by Lluís Barba, a Barcelona artist, who is among Perez’ favorites, and a garage mural by Venezuelan artist Jaime Gili.

Baltus House will boast the finest of modern amenities including a 50-foot pool next to a 400 square foot reflective pool on the seventh floor overlooking Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach, an oversized whirlpool, plush chaises, pool cabanas, and outdoor club seating featuring sofas, chairs, and ottomans. In addition to a rooftop sun deck with two spas will be an outdoor lounge area with a summer kitchen and barbecue grill, all with breathtaking bay views. Baltus House will have a state-of-the-art fitness center with professional-grade cardio machines, weight-training area and a yoga and Pilates area as well as a clubroom.

Groundbreaking is expected September 1, 2013.
