You’ve likely read at least one of his 80-some books (22 are New York Times best sell­ers) and put his mind­ful­ness tech­niques into prac­tice, but come 2018, you’ll be able to eat, breathe, and sleep in Deepak Cho­praap­proved, health-cen­tric con­dos when Muse Res­i­dences comes to rise in Sunny Isles.

“We need to look at the en­vi­ron­ment as some­thing that is a part of us, not sep­a­rate from us,” says Chopra. “We should think of it as our ex­tended body; well­ness real es­tate es­sen­tially re­moves the schism be­tween na­ture and nur­ture.”

The state-of-the-art res­i­dences—a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween PMG (the group be­hind Echo Brick­ell and de­vel­op­ments in Chicago and

New York), S2 De­vel­op­ment, well­ness real-es­tate pi­o­neer De­los, and Chopra—muse is the New Age guru’s de­but foray into home de­sign and the South Flor­ida lux­ury condo mar­ket. “How do you change some­one’s life?” asks Ryan Shear, prin­ci­pal at PMG. “The sim­ple an­swer: En­hance the qual­ity or ex­tend it. We chose the mod­ern-day health guru, formed a part­ner­ship, and in­cor­po­rated his 40 years of re­search into the build­ing.”

With just one res­i­dence on each floor—fea­tur­ing ex­pan­sive out­door liv­ing spa­ces with sum­mer kitchens over­look­ing the At­lantic and wa­ter-re­sis­tant en­ter­tain­ment sys­tems—muse is one step ahead of the aboveav­er­age smart home. Ev­ery unit in­cor­po­rates four core well­ness prin­ci­ples—air, wa­ter, light, and sleep—right into its liv­ing quar­ters. Case in point: un­par­al­leled air-pu­rifi­ca­tion and wa­ter-fil­tra­tion sys­tems for ul­tra-crisp air and the clean­est pos­si­ble H2O. And for­get mood light­ing—cir­ca­dian light­ing aligns with the body’s nat­u­ral 24-hour rhythm to op­ti­mize en­ergy, pro­duc­tiv­ity, and sleep, and im­prove your mood.

“Bi­o­log­i­cal sus­tain­abil­ity is the next fron­tier in hous­ing,” says Chopra, who en­vi­sions that smart homes of the fu­ture will “pro­vide be­hav­ioral and per­son­al­ized sug­ges­tions to im­prove over­all well­ness.”

With the Deepak Chopra touch, it’s safe to say there will be no place like home—or rather, like Muse Res­i­dences. 17100 Collins Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 305-974-0107; museres­i­dences.com

Liv­ing spa­ces use cir­ca­dian light­ing to en­hance res­i­dents’ sleep and sense of well-be­ing, plus Chopra-se­lected paint colors de­signed to have a pos­i­tive im­pact on mood.
