Downtown Miami’s Brickell Financial District is creating its own version of New York City’s Flatiron building. Vertical construction of Brickell Flatiron, a luxury condominium tower, has surpassed the 17th floor. One full level is expected to be completed every week until top-off in December 2018, set to become one of the tallest residential towers in the U.S. when completed in mid 2019.
Developed by Ugo Colombo, founder of CMC Group, the proposed 64-story tower will rise 736 feet. Design architect Massimo Iosa Ghini gave the development its distinct flatiron shape with flowing, curvilinear forms. Inside features inspired by the curved façade were designed by Luis Revuelta, to create a transition between the exterior and interior.
“Construction is ahead of schedule. Now that we’ve finished the building’s parking and initial amenity levels, we’ll start to see vertical construction move a lot faster— rising about a floor per week until top-off,” Vanessa Grout, president of CMC Real Estate, told Multi-Housing News. “Buyers have come to trust the CMC Group brand because of our attention to detail. Brickell Flatiron will continue that tradition by offering residents the highest caliber of quality and design, the most central location, and some of the market’s most unique amenities.”
Luxurious Amenity Offerings
Located at 1001 South Miami Ave., the 549-unit tower will feature one- to five-bedroom condo floorplans measuring up to 6,500 square feet. The building will also offer a Penthouse Collection, located between the 50th and 64th floors, which feature single-story floorplans, as well as two-story duplex and three-story triplexes.
Interior features will include Italian-made custom cabinets, marble finished floors, custom doors, glass balcony railings, stainless steel appliances, nine- to 10-foot ceilings, energy-efficient windows, recessed LED lighting, Caesarstone counter tops, double sinks with chrome fixtures, built-in dishwashers, Bosch front-loading washer and dryers and oversized spa tubs. Community amenities will include:
- 64th floor rooftop Sky Spa, Sky Pool and Sky Gym
- 360-degree views of Biscayne Bay and downtown
- private steam, sauna and locker facilities
- 6,300-square-foot fitness center
- pilates, yoga and aerobic studios
- rooftop garden
- ground level retail
- 18th floor resort-style lap pool and children’s pool
- Flatiron Theater with stadium seating
- executive meeting room
- billiard and cigar room
- wine cellar
- 24-hour concierge and parking valet
- vehicle washing and detailing center
- electric car charging station
Unit prices range from $500,000 to $2 million, with Penthouses ranging from $1 million to $15.5 million. More than 70 percent of the units have been pre-sold and are under hard contract. In April, CMC Group landed a $236 million construction loan from Bank of the Ozarks and RFR Realty.
