Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture designs 47-story condo tower in Miami
By David Malone
The tower will be located in Miami’s South Brickell neighborhood.
Miami certainly isn’t lacking in the luxury multifamily tower department. Between Porsche Design Tower, Aston Martin Residences, and One Bayfront Plaza, anyone (with a healthy bank account) who is looking for a new apartment or condo to call home won’t be bereft of options.
Now, a new option, courtesy of Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG), is about to rise 47-stories in Miami’s South Brickell neighborhood. Una Residences will have large flowing terraces that wrap around the building and a sweeping cantilever at the south end of the tower that overlooks the amenity spaces on the podium. The building’s shape assures each residence will have views of Biscayne Bay and the ocean.
The building’s interior, also designed by AS+GG, was inspired by the Riva yacht, a wooden sport boat made in Italy. Leather, wood, and stone are featured in warm colors to contrast the cool tones of chrome and stainless steel. A strong aesthetic connection exists between the building’s interior and exterior to create a cohesive living environment for residents.
The tower’s 138 units will range from two to five bedrooms and 1,100 sf to 4,786 sf. They will feature a private elevator entry, 10’8” ceilings, a chef’s kitchen with Gaggenau appliances, master suites with double closets and bathrooms, utility rooms with full-size washers and dryers, and 10-foot-deep terraces with lift-and-glide floor-to-ceiling doors and glass railings.
Building amenities include three pools, a fitness center with yoga and personal training areas, a dedicated beauty suite for private services, a cinema, a kids’ splash-pad and playroom, an outdoor lounge, a private residents dining/party room, and a 24-hour concierge.
OKO Group is the project’s developer.
