“Hey wait, we know these streets!”
That was us, cruising around and looking for the Onyx on the Bay tower. JP Shoiry, co-founder of the advertising agency Republik and I remember spending Art Basel together, literally two blocks up, in blooming Wynwood. This area by the bay is called Edgewater and is also steps away from the luxury shopping experience of the Miami Design District.

Tony was very savvy of the area and seemed very relaxed:
