UPDATED, July 22, 12:30 p.m.: Argentine soccer star Joaquin Correa put a condo under contract at Missoni Baia, a 57-story project under construction in the Edgewater neighborhood of Miami.
The developer, OKO Group, declined to disclose the price Correa contracted to pay but said the type of unit he reserved has been priced in the range of $1.5 million to $1.7 million.
Correa, 24, is a midfielder for Rome-based soccer club SS Lazio and has scored five goals since he joined the Serie A team last year. His team was the champion of the Copa Italia 2018-2019 tournament, during which Correa played in four matches and scored two goals.
Correa was represented by Fortune Christie's International Real Estate’s Tango Consulting Group, which was formed by Sergio Waissmann, Marco Francescoli and Kevin Waissmann.
He isn’t the only acclaimed soccer player who has put a unit at Missoni Baia under contract.
Colombian soccer star Miguel Borja, a professional player with the Brazilian club Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, recently reserved one of the 249 units in Missoni Baia, which is expected to open for occupancy in 2021.
The one- to five-bedroom condos at Missoni Baia range in size from 775 square feet to 3,788 square feet, and prices start in the $500,000s.
The project’s amenities includes a spa, an Olympic-size swimming pool, private cabanas, a children’s pool and tennis courts, a 1,700-square-foot gym and a spa for pets. – Mike Seemuth
