The Perigon, Miami Beach - By Mast Capital

TOP Luxury Buildings in Miami

Mar. 28th, 2022

It has often been said that great architecture is intelligence made visible—and nowhere is that more immediately apparent that in Miami in 2022.

So-called starchitects are building their dream visions in forms of blocks atop one another, of shimmering waves, of interlocking shapes—each making memorable patterns. Residents from around the world are drawn to the urban resort cachet of Miami with its delightful combination of sandy beaches, turquoise waters, upscale restaurants and elegant boutiques.

Miami also gives off healthy vibes, where eating, surfing, sunbathing and buying the best of the best all in one day is routine, not rare. It’s no wonder there’s been a housing boom in residences designed to delight the global travelers, nomads and sunseekers arriving on the scene.

It’s a new world: the time to awaken to sun-dappled water and feel the enveloping warmth of a new day—a perfected life—is right now.

The Perigon has just launched sales in Miami Beach, becoming the first ever condo tower in the city designed by starchitect Rem Koolhaas’s OMA Group.

The Perigon is also the only new building being developed from the ground-up, launching sales directly on the sands of Miami Beach.

The tower will include 82 residences, ranging in size from 2,100 to 6,700 square feet.  Located at 5333 Collins, The Perigon is part of Mid-Beach between Indian Creek and the Atlantic Ocean.

Koolhaas’s OMA designed the building as a series of towers, rotated to orient and enhance views from all residences toward the Atlantic Ocean, while also enhancing views of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline overlooking Miami Beach. The interlocking-tower design will obtain LEED Gold certification when completed.

The Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami

The Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami is in the most visible location in downtown Miami, set around the central business district, which includes elite restaurants, cultural hotspots, and a vibrant nightlife. It’s the prime location from which to see and be seen. A fitting maxim because after one sees the building, it can’t be forgotten.

Because of its unique design, the Waldorf Astoria Residences adds a major architectural dimension to its already urban locale. It’s now considered the signature, original tower in Miami, rising 1,049 feet above Biscayne Bay. Conceived by Carlos Ott and Sieger Suarez, the building will be the tallest south of New York City, and arguably, the most memorable. The notable design will be constructed of nine glass boxes staggered atop one another.

“The unique nature of this project largely comes from not only creating an iconic building,” said Ott, “but also, as a distinguished built sculpture that will permanently alter Miami’s skyline with height and design never seen before.” So true.

Inside, the project’s aesthetic pleasures continue. The property consists of 360 private residences as well as 205 guestrooms and suites within the five-star hotel. Signature spaces will include a specialty restaurant; indoor/outdoor pre-function and function spaces; meetings and boardrooms; a resort-style pool deck with private cabanas; and a spa and fitness center. Residences start at $1.4 million. And the views? Each one, according to Mr. Ott, is different.

“The exterior glass skin design of Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami impacts the experience of those residing inside the tower,” he explained.” It offers a different, breath-taking view from each residence, kitchen, balcony or bedroom.”

Looking from the inside out—and outside in—the new Waldorf Astoria Residences Miami reflect the most original, the most elite in high-end residential living.

Una Tower

Una is the first new condominium development to become part of the private residential area of Brickell Waterfront/Miami in more than a decade.

The Una tower is as unique up close as it is from a distance. Visible from Biscayne Bay, the iconic tower features a smooth, light-metallic surface and recalls the natural shape of a wave. There are 135 Miami waterfront residences spanning 47 floors, with options ranging from 2 to 5 bedrooms and from 1,946 to 4,735 square feet.

The tower’s modern curves are complemented by the landscaped gardens designed by ENEA Landscape Architecture. Riding an elevator directly into their homes, residents are greeted by grand views of Biscayne Bay. Bedroom and living areas are also set along the waterfront, allowing residents to see unobstructed Bay views.

In addition, floor-to-ceiling windows reflect the shimmering water and deep blue sky, bringing daylight into the great rooms and bedrooms. Extra-wide terraces further move the outdoors in for a seamless transition between the two.

What’s more, every finish and surface is inspired by yacht interiors, bringing a sense of elegance and mobility to the residences, while never forgetting the pleasure of seeing weather and watercolor changes on the Bay and beyond.

The brainchild of the chairman of Aman Resorts, Una Residences is also considered a masterpiece design by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, designers of the new Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia.

Moving from the solitude of the desert to the active water lifestyle of Miami, these esteemed resort designers envisioned Una Tower as a silver wave symbolizing both activity and peace, as it rises high on the pristine Miami waterfront.
