Dear Future Resident,
As a developer, I visualize two different kinds of spaces – the physical and the creative. It is through this two-sided perception that projects are born. And it is because of this thinking that Oceana Bal Harbour is destined to become a unique habitat. As a result of a comprehensive approach that integrates urbanism, landscape, architecture, interior design, art, and amenities, and their resulting synergies, Oceana Bal Harbour has been created to be truly exceptional and nearly impossible to replicate. The beauty of the building, layout of units, exposure to the ocean and bay, high-quality way of life that is unquestionably based in perfection.
Such distinctive characteristics inspired us to crown Oceana Bal Harbour with two truly superlative sculptures from renowned artist Jeff Koons. Pluto & Proserpina as well as Ballerina symbolize an innovative transition from historical views to a future-oriented vision that draws from traditional subject matter and re-imagines it in captivating examples of the post-contemporary art movement. This entire creative process is driven by a desire to provide fullness and enjoyment for all who encounter Oceana Bal Harbour and it is our hope you will take pleasure in this special destination for many years to come.
