Bathed in a golden glow, Miami Beach has been keeping a luxurious secret. Fusing design, imagination and the lifestyle of the tropics, AQUA Allison Island unveils a world-class 8.5-acre island village. Bringing together the talents of planners, architects and artists, AQUA Allison Island Miami Beach is an intimate, design-informed, art-filled private island that will house only 151 families in condos and island homes.

Modernist and contemporary architecture and art merge with a traditional town plan created by renowned New Urbanists Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company. AQUA mid-rise loft and condominium residences and exclusive island homes are destined to change the expectations of elegant and protected living on Miami Beach's legendary Millionaire's Row.

AQUA is a cohesive, pedestrian-oriented guarded island for people who appreciate fine living, inspiring art and quality design. Its streets and blocks encourage walking and include a waterside promenade, a series of small plazas and a central square connected by avenues, streets, lanes and walkways. Lush landscaping creates the vibrant green space of a tropical island. Ten contemporary architectural firms were invited to design the AQUA condos and islands homes, responding to the island setting, climate of Miami Beach, and the qualities of life associated with the tropics
