South Of Fifth Condos Are Dazzling: Meet The Architects Behind ThemApril 26, 2017
South of Fifth is known for its charming sidewalk boutiques, trendy brunch spots, artsy museums and beautiful architecture. Some of the most talented architects in the world have chosen Miami, and the SoFi district in particular, to show off their incredible design ideas. Buildings like Apogee, Glass and 321 Ocean redefine what it means to live in ultimate luxury, and if the spacious penthouses and incredible amenities weren’t enough, the beautiful and brilliant architectural design set against the gorgeous Miami skyline is enough to leave you speechless.
321 Ocean, brainchild of famed architect Enrique Norton, is an ultra-modern condominium tower made of glass. It’s sleek and sexy design fit right in with the vibe of South Beach, and it is truly a tower created with the contemporary Miamian in mind. This development is made up of two buildings with a spacious courtyard in between. The units have expansive balconies overlooking the water, and the penthouse suites have panoramic urban and ocean views. Each unit has soaring ceilings, porcelain tile flooring, and sleek kitchen designs by Poggenpohl including Sub-Zero appliances, and stone countertops. European imported marbled combined with glass and granite fixtures in the bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and private elevators add to this impressive tower. Residents have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, library, and infinity edge pool. High-profile figures are quick to claim a spot at 321 Ocean for a luxurious, private and intimate place to call home.
Sieger Suarez knew what he was doing when he created the breathtaking Apogee building in South Beach. This 22-story building has 67 units and is complete with premium “optimally clear” glass for incredible views from every point in the home. The “open flow” concept gives each unit an ocean view and a city view, and feature granite and French limestone touches for ultimate luxury. This impressive building is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside, and the upscale amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa and infinity edge pool add even more luxury to this already mind-blowing architectural masterpiece.
When it comes to sleek and futuristic design, Glass Miami Beach takes the cake. According to its creators and architect Rene Gonzalez, the building is “designed to reflect and respond to the natural elements of the Miami skyline.” It is 17-story building that appears to melt into the gorgeous Miami sky as it rises. The brilliant design reflects the sea, sand, and sky that surround it, and the colors of the glass shift just like the colors of the sky. The slow shift from water to sky is apparent throughout the building, even in the incredibly designed elevators inside the building. This unique building has 10 beautiful residences with floor-to-ceiling glass, gourmet kitchens with modern appliances, elegant bathrooms with tile and glass accents, spacious bedrooms, and an open layout that flows from one unbelievable room to the next. When it comes to creativity, technology, design, luxury, and style, Glass has it all.
When you really take the time to think about the thought, research, creativity, and inspiration that are behind each of these luxury South of Fifth towers, it can seem overwhelming. Thankfully, brilliant minds like Enrique Norton, Sieger Suarez, and Rene Gonzalez are good at that stuff, and all you have to do is decide which incredible tower in South Beach works best for your Miami lifestyle.
