The Residences at 1428 Brickell Unveiled – Miami’s Newest Solar-Powered Tower

Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel (ACPV) Architects and Arquitectonica have unveiled designs for The Residences at 1428 Brickell, a 70-story luxury tower in Miami that will be the first-ever residential building featuring 20,000 square feet of solar glass, reports designboom. The project is being developed by Ytech—led by CEO Yamal Yidios—consisting of 189 residences, including a penthouse collection.

As part of the building’s solar energy features, The Residences at 1428 Brickell will integrate 500 photovoltaic-windows within the facade that essentially convert light into energy, with the capacity to produce up to 170 megawatts of clean energy per year, replacing nearly 4,700 tons of CO2.

According to CEO, Yamal Yidios, Ytech’s vision is to “…create residential sanctuaries in an urban environment where design is driven first and foremost by resident experience and needs.”

Closings Underway at CetraRuddy’s Upper West Side Rental-to-Condo Conversion

On the Upper West Side, 212 West 72nd Street has commenced first closings, with residents starting to move into these new luxury condominium residences. The building’s former 196 rental apartments have been transformed into 108 one- to five-bedroom condominiums in a full renovation led by award-winning architecture firm CetraRuddy. Prices on available inventory range between $1.299 million and $19.15 million.

Apartments feature floor-to-ceiling windows, open-concept layouts, white oak flooring, kitchens with matte lacquer cabinetry, custom millwork, and private terraces in select residences. Penthouse North and Penthouse South, priced at $19.15 million and $13.5 million, respectively, come complete with sprawling private rooftop lounges with hot tubs, pizza ovens, outdoor movie theaters, kitchens, and showers.

“Purchasers at 212 West 72nd Street are coming from all over the world, but it’s been interesting to see just how many of them—at one time or another—have lived in this building before and have enjoyed its enviable location,” said AnneMarie Alexander, the condominium’s director of sales.

Prospective buyers can tour new model residences staged by Interior Marketing Group on the higher floors of the building. The homes showcase many of the unique layouts offered at the condominium, which range in size from 714 square feet with one bedroom to 3,070 square feet with four bedrooms.

Prewar details are found throughout the home and include chevron wood flooring, crown molding, and oversized arched windows.

Related Group Plans Invite-Only Condominium Building on Miami’s Exclusive Fisher Island

The Related Group is planning a 50-residence condominium building on Miami’s swanky Fisher Island that will be available to buyers by invitation only, reports Business Insider. The building is slated to be designed by London-based interior design studio Tara Bernerd and Partners and architect Kobi Karp, offering three- to five-bedroom residences with prices starting around the $30 million mark and penthouses asking over $60 million.

Fisher Island is home to fewer than 600 residents and is a seven-minute ferry ride south of Miami Beach, between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. In 2018, the island was determined to be America’s wealthiest ZIP code, with an average income of $2.5 million in 2015. Big names like Oprah Winfrey, Mel Brooks, and Julia Roberts have called Fisher Island home in the past. 

Sales at the yet-to-be-named development will launch by the end of the year.
