Construction moving ahead at several buildings in Miami
If you are wondering what the progress is like for the new developments in Miami and surrounding areas, we have a new look at where some of the buildings stand, from Jade Signature, which had its grand opening recently to the awaited One Thousand Museum, expected to be completed in late 2018.
One Thousand Museum
The one-and-only residential skyscraper signed by Zaha Hadid in the Western Hemisphere has topped out, confirmed the developers Louis Birdman, Gregg Covin, Kevin Venger, and Regalia Group along with New York-based Plaza Construction.
The highly anticipated project with an unconventional innovates by proposing a concrete exoskeleton that structures the perimeter of the tower in a network of curved lines. The sturdy structure was intended to resist the wind loads of the city, and also benefit the residents with a maximum variation in the layouts and views since the floor plan of the apartments is practically free of columns.
The milestone was celebrated with a private party at the Frost Science Museum, which offers a direct view of One Thousand Museum. The building completion is scheduled for late 2018.
Fortune International Group, led by Edgardo and Ana Cristina Defortuna, Herzon & de Meuron, Raymond Jungles Inc., a Miami based landscape architectural firm, and PYR, a Paris-based, interior design firm led by Pierre Yves-Rochon, held the grand opening for their recently completed Jade Signature in Sunny Isles Beach.
The building’s angular position and structural design have upscale apartments with “flow-through-style floor plan” allow the residents to maximize sunlight throughout the year and reach a cool temperature naturally, avoiding the use of air conditioning. Amenities include a full-service spa, a fitness center, steam room, hammam, beachfront deck, and a “zero entry free-form swimming pool.”
Residences by Armani/Casa
The tower designed by architect Cesar Pelli and interiors by designer Giorgio Armani, Residences by Armani/Casa, is nearly halfway through, according to information from Curbed Miami. The luxury building has the delivery schedule for 2019, and it’s 76% sold.
Another one that is halfway to the top is Ritz-Carlton Residences, in Sunny Isles Beach. With 212 residences, no hotel on this site, the curvilinear oceanfront tower designed by Arquitectonica is schedule to delivery in 2019.
