Miami’s very own Flatiron takes shape

As high rise development continues apace in Miami, the city’s very own modern day version of New York’s iconic Flatiron building is rapidly emerging (see below for a drone's eye view of the project so far)...

For years there has been talk of Miami becoming a “Mini-Manhattan,” but now this idea is actually coming to life. International and home to super-tall skyscrapers, stylish hotels and trendy restaurants, Downtown Miami’s Brickell Financial District is the face of the new Miami. And now Brickell’s very own version of NYC’s famous Flatiron Building is taking shape.

Designed by Revuelta Architecture International, vertical construction of CMC Group’s Brickell Flatiron, a 64-story luxury condominium tower now rising in Downtown Miami’s Brickell neighborhood, has reached the halfway mark as builders finish construction of the skyscraper’s 32nd floor. With about one full-level expected to be completed every week going forward until top-off later this year, the 736-foot-tall high-rise is slated to become one of the tallest residential towers in the U.S. upon its delivery in summer 2019. Approximately 75% of Brickell Flatiron’s 549 units have been sold and are currently under hard contract, with about 8 out of 10 condo sales within the last 30 days coming from buyers within the northeastern U.S.

To give his vision life, Brickell Flatiron’s developer, Milan-born Ugo Colombo, partnered with master Italian design architect Massimo Iosa Ghini to create a one-of-a-kind environment that combines the tower’s distinct flatiron shape with flowing, curvilinear forms. On the inside, Iosa Ghini uses inspiration from Brickell Flatiron’s curved façade, which was designed by acclaimed Miami architect Luis Revuelta, to outline the building’s sleek amenity spaces, creating a seamless transition from exterior to interior.
