A Jeff Koons sculpture owned by the residents of Oceana Bal Harbour is on loan for a world tour through the Whitney Museum in New York City, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Guggenheim in Bilbao and MALBA in Buenos Aires. The “Pluto and Proserpina” sculpture will then be on permanent display at Oceana Bal Harbour. It marks the first time a work of art owned by residents of a condo development has embarked on a world exhibition tour.
Jeff Koons, the most expensive living artist at auction, created two sculptures for Oceana Bal Harbour. Along with “Pluto and Proserpina”, “Ballerina” will also adorn the luxury building’s breathtaking 5-story breezeway.
Oceana Bal Harbour is scheduled for completion in 2016. The 28-story oceanfront building will contain 239 condos. The lavish residences will offer panoramic views, spacious balconies, floor-to-ceiling glass, private elevators and more.

New luxury condo developments are popping up throughout South Florida, and developers are using varying tactics to attract affluent buyers. Increasingly, they are utilizing art to make their projects stand out from the pack.
At Muse in Sunny Isles Beach, the developers Property Markets Group and S2 Development commissioned world-renowned sculptor Helidon Xhixha to create original works of art for every buyer in the 68-unit, oceanfront building.
“Those who invest in high-end luxury homes also tend to have a strong knowledge of art,” Xhixha told the NY Times. He also noted that having a 47-story tower filled with his sculptures will be like having his own private museum.
Recently, Muse began converting refundable reservations into presale contracts. This puts the Carlos Ott-designed building on track for groundbreaking at the end of this year. Completion is scheduled for 2017.
