Developer of the 57-story Elysee Miami condo tower, Two Roads Development, has announced that it will be partnering with the Miami-based Wellness Habitat Company to integrate the latest health and wellness-oriented systems into the building’s common areas, making Elysee Miami the first wellness condo development in the city.
Wellness Habitat Company has specialized in the installation of health and wellness systems in private residences throughout South Florida as well as hotels in Mexico; the 100-unit Elysee Miami will be the first condo project for the company. The systems set to be integrated into the building will include various levels of water filtration, air purification, aromatherapy shower diffusers in the spa that deliver vitamin C and collagen, eco-friendly paint, and LED circadian lighting, according to the CEO of Wellness Habitat Company, Robert Thorne. Wellness packages will also be available for individual units.
The aromatherapy diffusers installed in the air conditioning system will be pumping out farm-grown organic oils from Iowa, including motivating scents during the day and more calm and relaxing scents at night. All paint, primer, and glue used in the building will be non-toxic, ensuring that no toxins are able to escape from the drywall at any time. Additionally, the lighting in each common area will coincide with circadian rhythms, allowing it to dim and brighten accordingly.
Pre-construction sales commenced in November of 2015, and the building is scheduled to go vertical this coming January, according to managing partner of Two Roads Development, Taylor Collins. The number of units sold to date is unknown; however, Collins has indicated that the sales team has sold $28 million worth of units in just the last two months.
Unit prices range from approximately $1.4 million to a high of $14 million, with unit sizes ranging from 2,300 square feet to 11,000 square feet. Collins has indicated that the average price per square foot is $775. Not only will the wellness systems have a positive impact on the residents, they will also have a positive impact on the value of the real estate.
