JMA was selected as the general contractor
to oversee the construction of Muse Residences, a 51-story luxury oceanfront condominium located in Sunny Isles, Fla. Sunny
Isles is a world-class waterfront destination
on the coastline of south Florida that lies
between the Intracoastal Waterway and the
Atlantic Ocean. It is a small neighborhood
strip about 20 blocks long and features an
assortment of high-end retailers.
Muse Residences, a 650-foot-tall glass
tower, features a unique twisting design.
The exterior is designed of concrete and
glass and creates an optical illusion of
movement. "The most unique aspects of
Muse is that it twists itself and it's a technically-advanced building," Schuerger says.
Muse Residences was developed by
Property Market Groups (PMG) and S2 De-
velopment and designed by Sieger Suarez
with conceptual design by Carlos Ott. "It's
a privilege to work on such an architecturally stunning and structurally challenging
project such as Muse Residences," says John

an extraordinary building that is also a

Muse offers only 64 residences, focusing
on unparalleled amenities and services.
All condominium units span the width of
the building with expansive, 60-foot-wide
and up to 38-foot-deep balconies that offer
sweeping views of the ocean.
"Each residence has huge balconies
complete with summer kitchens out there,
speakers and a television for entertainment," Schuerger says. "The western balconies are larger and follow the contour of
the twist, so they get larger on the northern
end as you go higher up the building. The
