MIAMI, FL - You shout it out, but I can’t hear a word you say.
In superstar DJ David Guetta’s sprawling new penthouse at Paraiso Bay in Miami, this is especially the case.
Though headlines circulated last year when Guetta inked a contract for this unit, specific details were largely kept under wraps. The likely high price he’s paying for the luxe spread is still not available, but The Post can reveal the juicy details of its stunning look and roomy layout.
Occupying two levels on the 53rd and 54th floors of Paraiso Bay in the city’s ascendent Edgewater district, the luxe pad was custom-designed by Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni for Guetta — who appears to be quite the at-home entertainer.
The main level — which alone measures 2,472 square feet inside and has a 430-square-foot outdoor terrace — boasts a double-volume foyer and sculptural staircase, a master bedroom suite with large wardrobe space, as well as a great room and open kitchen. Upstairs, the second level — with a 500-square-foot den and a sprawling, 2,130-square-foot roof terrace — stands as the crown jewel with a private pool, summer kitchen and sunning deck.
As for the nitty-gritty counts, the unit will be delivered with three bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms. There will also be private elevator access, floor-to-ceiling windows and, best of all, views of the ocean.
The project is still under construction and is slated for fall 2016 completion. Guetta was repped in his deal by Zelda Freud of the Freud Group at South Beach Estates.
Paraiso Bay is one of four towers in the Related Group’s 5-acre Biscayne Bay-front Paraiso development, whose helping hands also include architecture firm Arquitectonica, industrial designer Karim Rashid, Swiss landscape architect Enzo Enea and United Design Partnership. (Lissoni also handled the designs for the lobbies and public spaces at two of the site’s other towers.)
Guetta will have some famous company at Paraiso: A-Rod recently nabbed a 3,200-square-foot penthouse at the Gran Paraiso tower (where similar units reportedly go for $4 million-plus), and other future neighbors include tennis champ Arantxa Sánchez Vicario and pro basketball player Manu Ginobili.
