Aqua: The Ultimate Designed Community
"What will establish Aqua's place in the design firmament of Miami Beach--and master-planned resort communities in general--is the absolute thoroughness of its planning and execution, in conjunction with a devotion to design excellence that's evident at every turn.
Aqua, the new, 151-dwelling, 8.5-acre secure community on Alison Island in North Miami Beach has taken shape. Its first residents, a gay couple, have moved into the complexs anchor building, a former hospital where Aqua developer Craig Robins was born.
...DPZ master-planned the community, whose security-conscious, wealthy inhabitants are likely to be mostly part-timers; they will have to go off-island for anything other than what the one small high-end convenience/gourmet retailer on-site can provide."
