This Oasis of Luxury Immerses You in One of Miami Beach’s Last Bastions of Active and Healthy Pursuits Without Crowds and Inconveniences

Miami Beach, FL – Stimulate all your senses when you move into the new waterfront, upscale townhomes in Miami at IRIS on the Bay, where the privacy of spacious single-family living combines with the security of a tranquil gated enclave. It fulfills all your wishes for luxury at a level unheard of in Miami Beach’s current high-rise centric real estate market where you are surrounded by towering buildings that obscure views and create congestion. At IRIS you will find a serene human-scale, walkable neighborhood where the pace is slower, parking is possible, and amenities such as incredible shopping, dining, entertainment, and recreation are nearby.

IRIS on the Bay is set in the delightful historic districts of Normandy Isle and neighboring North Beach, recognized on the National Register of Historic Places for the post-war modern architectural style of Miami Modernism, also known as MiMo. The attractive, mostly low-rise buildings are defined by acute angles, delta wings, and sweeping curved walls. Adding to the cosmopolitan atmosphere, French street names and an iconic fountain at the entrance are symbols of the neighborhood’s rich history as a European-inspired community.
