Deepak Chopra lends his name and a holistic hand to a sky-rise in Sunny Isles, merging high high living and well-being.
Muse Residences in Sunny Isles. left: “PMG is one of the premier real estate investment and development firms,” says Deepak Chopra. “I was immediately intrigued when they approached me because they are fully invested in creating sustainable spaces that enhance resident health in a meaningful way.”
You’ve likely read at least one of his 80-some books (22 are New York Times best sellers) and put his mindfulness techniques into practice, but come 2018, you’ll be able to eat, breathe, and sleep in Deepak Chopra-approved, health-centric condos when Muse Residences comes to rise in Sunny Isles. “We need to look at the environment as something that is a part of us, not separate from us,” says Chopra. “We should think of it as our extended body; wellness real estate essentially removes the schism between nature and nurture.”
The state-of-the-art residences—a collaboration between PMG (the group behind Echo Brickell and developments in Chicago and New York), developer S2 Development, wellness real-estate pioneer Delos, and Chopra—Muse is the New Age guru’s debut foray into home design and the South Florida luxury condo market. “How do you change someone’s life?” asks Ryan Shear, principal at PMG. “The simple answer: Enhance the quality or extend it. We chose the modern-day health guru, formed a partnership, and incorporated his 40 years of research into the building.”
Living spaces use circadian lighting to enhance residents’ sleep and sense of well-being, plus Chopra-selected paint colors designed to have a positive impact on mood.
With just one residence on each floor—featuring expansive outdoor living spaces with summer kitchens overlooking the Atlantic and water-resistant entertainment systems—Muse is one step ahead of the above-average smart home. Every unit incorporates four core wellness principles—air, water, light, and sleep‚—right into its living quarters. Case in point: unparalleled air-purification and water-filtration systems for ultra-crisp air and the cleanest possible H2O.
Advanced water-filtration and air-purification technologies appeal to buyers looking to bring their healthy lifestyles home. “People ask me, ‘Will you feel healthier and live longer?’” says Ryan Shear. “Probably. Betting on health versus another brand is something we feel strongly about.” Here, a Muse kitchen.
And forget mood lighting—circadian lighting aligns with the body’s natural 24-hour rhythm to optimize energy, productivity, and sleep, and improve your mood. “Biological sustainability is the next frontier in housing,” says Chopra, who envisions that smart homes of the future will “provide behavioral and personalized suggestions to improve overall wellness.” With the Deepak Chopra touch, it’s safe to say there will be no place like home—or rather, like Muse Residences. 17100 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-974-0107
