Over the summer we reported that Lenny Kravitz is leading his New York-based firm Kravitz Design Inc. to create the artistic vision for the Downtown Miami condominium project Paramount Bay. Now the rock star has unveiled the first series of details for the 47-story bay front tower, set for completion early next year. Intended to be comfortably luxurious, Paramount Bay is designed to be an alluring mix of refined city apartment and casual beach house décor, with Kravitz’s signature eclectic touches.

"My vision for Paramount Bay is one that integrates the natural beauty and energy of Miami into a look that is as functional as it is inspirational," Kravitz says. "Life within the walls of Paramount Bay should be a blend of urban chic and waterfront living. Every corner, space and turn is strategically envisioned to emphasize this."

Residents will be able to take advantage of an outdoor recreational area featuring a 91-foot-long swimming pool with cabanas, an interactive fountain, movie screen, pavilion, and BBQ areas. Lush tropical landscaping and native plants set the tone for the outside plaza leading to the building’s porte cochere, flanked by two fountains at the center of the drive.

Oversized mahogany doors mark the entrance to the tower and its impressive 30-foot-tall lobby situated around a sleek marble concierge station. One end of the lobby features a live, tropical plantscape designed to evoke a "sense of retreat within an urban oasis."

The lobby also features a garden room opening onto a three-tier outdoor garden offering private seating areas and access to Paramount Bay’s shops. A grand, sweeping staircase set in marble and crafted of American walnut framed by smoke grey glass and a bronze handrail leads to the mezzanine featuring children’s spaces, a business lounge and billiards table. One end of the mezzanine leads to the club room, a communal area with top-of-the-line kitchen equipment and entertainment systems.

The tower’s more than 340 residences are accessible via individual elevator banks and private foyers. Key details are floor-to-ceiling windows, open floor plans and panoramic terraces with city, bay and ocean views. Layouts feature up to five bedrooms and range from 1,214 to 4,437 square feet. Kitchens are finished with the finest Italian wood cabinetry and quartz stone countertops and are equipped with stainless-steel Wolf/Sub-Zero appliances. Go to to see more.
