An oceanfront location on two miles of pristine beach, a world-class team of architects and designers, and three full floors of amenity space—this glass and concrete residential tower just north of Miami Beach checks all the boxes and then some. But what makes this luxury condominium development truly unique is its “from the inside out” design approach. “Most buildings are conceived with the exterior look first, “said Edgardo Defortuna, president and CEO of Fortune International. “We did the opposite.” Pritzker Prize-winning architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, together with interior design firm Pierre-Yves Rochon and landscape architect Raymond Jungles, started with the idea of an indoor-outdoor lifestyle that would flow seamlessly from the beach to the pool to the lobby to the street. The resulting tower, oriented to maximize the sun exposure and surrounded by lush greenery, is designed around generous floor-through layouts that afford spectacular views to the east and west, and expansive terraces that serve as outdoor living rooms.
Sunny Isles Beach, Miami
16901 COLLINS AVE, SUNNY ISLES BEACH, FL 33160, USA
Just north of Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles Beach is an exclusive enclave where luxury resorts line a two-mile stretch of pristine sand. With the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west, the barrier island has a quiet, intimate vibe that feels far removed from South Beach and Downtown Miami. Of note are the area’s parks, including Samson Oceanfront Park, Senator Gwen Margolis Park, and, to the south, the 177-acre Haulover Park.
