South America’s futbolista of the year is buying a luxury condo at Missoni Baia in Edgewater.

Miguel Borja, a forward for the Brazilian club Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, is buying a two-bedroom unit at the 57-story skyscraper at 777 Northeast 26th Terrace in Miami, a spokesperson said. Comparable condos are asking $850,000 to $1.5 million.

Borja was crowned “Footballer of the Year” in 2016 and will play for the Colombian national team at the FIFA World Cup in Russia this summer.

OKO Group, led by Russian developer Vlad Doronin, broke ground on the 249-unit tower in October. Last week, Miami’s Urban Development Review Board unanimously approved design changes for the project, which included increasing the number of units from 146 to 249.

Amenities at Missoni Baia will include a flow-through deck with cabanas, five swimming pools, an elevated tennis court, fitness center and spa. Fortune International Group took over sales from Cervera Real Estate last year.
