Here’s the latest in the seemingly endless array of amenities developers are adding to their repertoire: an aromatherapy trail, with plantings of chamomile, eucalyptus and other plants aimed at restoring and soothing the mind and body.

The trail will surround The Harbour, a planned twin-tower condominium project at 16385 Biscayne Boulevard in North Miami Beach, The Real Deal has learned. Developed by Key International and 13th Floor Investments, both 32-story buildings will have a combined 425 units. The waterfront project represents the fourth collaboration between the two firms.

The Harbour is now 80 percent reserved, and is converting to contracts, according to Arnaud Karsenti, managing director of 13th Floor Investments and Liliana Paez, CEO of Key International’s sale arm. Prices begin at $550,000, with residences ranging from one to three bedrooms and 1,032 square feet to 2,442 square feet.

The condo is being marketed as a tropical oasis, with such amenities as a variety of watersports, marina and boat rental, an outdoor exercise track, and an indoor-outdoor spa, Paez told TRD.

The Harbour’s aromatherapy trail, which runs the entire five-acre property, will feature five areas with different scents. Each is geared to provide special restorative powers, Paez said. There is a lavender walk for tension relief and clearing the mind; a chamomile walk, to combat stress and anxiety; a eucalyptus walk, for pain relief; a mint walk for energizing and revitalizing; and a gardenia walk as an anti-depressant.

The aromatherapy trail — available only to residents — will also be peppered with watering stations that will offer water infused with coconut, lemon and green tea, and chlorophyll, the developers said.

The Harbour is expected to begin construction as early as the end of this year, when the developers secure construction financing.
