ADVANCED INTERLAYER SOLUTIONS
Situated in the heart of Downtown Miami’s Brickell Financial District, the 224 m (736 ft) 64 story Brickell Flatiron offers an array of luxury residences – to multiple local and international buyers – in what is now the city’s tallest condominium.
Residences range from one-to-five bedrooms, with a limited collection of penthouses that include twostory duplex and three-story triplex units. Most of the development’s 527 units have already sold, with the remaining residences being vailable from $790,000 to $3 million, and one upper duplex penthouse for $9.4 million.
The tower’s 64th-floor rooftop amenities encompass a Sky Spa, Sky Pool and Sky Gym with 360-degree panoramic views of the bay and downtown Miami’s glimmering cityscape. Residents also have access to private steam, sauna and locker facilities, a 585 m² (6,300 square foot) state-of-the-art fitness center, and a juice bar. Additional features include a resort-style lap pool and separate children’s pool on the 18th floor, private movie theater with stadium seating, billiards room and lounge and a clubroom.
Built by Ugo Colombo’s CMC Group, Brickell Flatiron’s design is the brainchild of architect Luis Revuelta, while on the inside, Italian design architect Massimo Iosa Ghini uses light as a key element throughout the project with contrasting soft and bright lighting used to distinguish the indoor and outdoor spaces and create a comfortable yet refined atmosphere.
Colombo and Revuelta have already teamed up on a number of important buildings. In 1988 Colombo approached Revuelta with the proposal of building a luxury high-rise on Brickell Avenue. Completed in 1993, the 40-story condominium – known as The Bristol Tower and defined by a circular design with wraparound balconies – was a roaring success and defined a new style of Miami chic. Revuelta went on to produce countless other architectural gems in Florida: the Azure condominium complex in Surfside; Grovenor House in Bayshore Drive; Santa Maria on Brickell Avenue. In each of his buildings, there is a feeling of kinetics — an echo of the rolling waves they often overlook. As Revuelta himself has said: “I always strive to create in our buildings a sense of movement in an otherwise static, concrete object.”
Echoing this aesthetic, the exterior of the Brickell Flatiron is a sea of glass, with significant amounts of glazing and balustrades on every floor. Features which are now much more commonplace in Florida and the neighboring states, thanks to structural glazing lamination, which is made possible with advanced PVBs and the SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayer from Trosifol.
“When we started developing in Miami in the early 1990s, our firm viewed Brickell and Downtown as a ‘blank canvas’ that would one day come to life as a vibrant residential and commercial district where streets were alive 24 hours a day,” explains developer Ugo Colombo, Founder of CMC Group.
