A downtown Miami condo tower has shut down its amenities deck, pools and barbecue, and asked visitors to stay away after a resident was confirmed to have tested positive for Covid-19, The Real Deal has learned.

The condo association of Marinablue, the 57-story, 516-unit tower at 888 Biscayne Boulevard, sent an email blast alerting residents of the coronavirus case on Monday. The infected resident has been treated and is in isolation, according to the email obtained by TRD.

According to the Florida Department of Health, there were at least 1,171 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Florida as of Monday afternoon, including 267 in Miami-Dade County.

Marinablue’s association asked that all non-essential visitors, family members, vendors and contractors not visit the building until further notice.

The condo building is closing its 14th floor amenity deck with pools and grilling area, and is continuing to disinfect the elevator buttons, front door handles, stair railings and the front desk counter, according to the email. Staff members are wearing gloves as a precaution, including front desk and valet. “We are adapting a NO TOUCH policy, guests can show ID but we will not touch the ID,” the email states.

Marinablue was developed by Hyperion Development in 2008. The tower, designed by Arquitectonica, is across the street from the AmericanAirlines Arena and near the Zaha Hadid-designed condo tower One Thousand Museum.

In 2018, former Miami Heat player Chris “Birdman” Andersen listed two units at Marinablue for a total of $1 million.
