Aglow with warm neutral tones and rich woodwork, this bright condo may not necessarily scream “South Beach” at first glance. That, however, is exactly what its owner—clothing designer Anthony Thomas Melillo—set out to create when he renovated the two-bedroom, two-bathroom property in the Montclair Lofts building at 1700 Collins Avenue.
Described as a “New York City–style loft on the beach” in an earlier interview with Architectural Digest, the designer’s Miami pied-à-terre is full of interesting touches and custom furnishings.
The minimalist but welcoming decor is set off by its oak ceilings, polished concrete floors, a sleek compact kitchen, two private terraces finished in ipe wood, and an alcove area that can be used as a home office or nursery.
Listed by Dina Goldentayer and Joseph Schafer of Douglas Elliman, the highly customized residence hit the market in March seeking $715,000. It recently re-listed with the asking price of $625,000—quite reasonable by most South Beach standards.
Melillo is perhaps best known for his namesake ATM label which launched in 2012 with the aim of creating the “perfect t-shirt,” according to his company’s website. The brand grew into a full collection of men’s and women’s sports and loungewear.
