With the recent pandemic sparking new demand for South Florida luxury property – particularly from wealthy out-of-market buyers lured by the region’s low taxes and tropical weather – CMC Group has unveiled the last remaining upper penthouse at its newly completed Brickell Flatiron tower in Downtown Miami. The 64-story tower’s developer, Milan-born Ugo Colombo, has decided to put the developer-owned “turn-key” unit on the market after successfully closing more than $30 million in penthouse sales in 2020. Approximately 98% of Brickell Flatiron’s 527 units are sold to buyers from around the world, with more than half of its residents hailing from within the domestic United States. The 736-foot-high skyscraper, located at 1000 Brickell Plaza in Downtown Miami’s Brickell Financial District, currently stands as the tallest condominium in Miami.
Now listed for $9.4 million, the expansive 2-story duplex penthouse spans over 4,600 square feet atop Brickell Flatiron’s 62nd floor and comes completely built-out and designed by Barcelona-born architect Alexis Cogul Lleonart of Miami-based Doo Architecture with beautifully curated accessories by Nest Casa. The fully furnished “townhome in the sky” features 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a vast 20-foot double height living area enveloped by panoramic cityscape and water views.
“Now more than ever, buyers have grown accustomed to and appreciate the level of detail we have always strived to deliver at CMC Group,” said developer Ugo Colombo, founder of CMC Group. “Brickell Flatiron’s last available penthouse embodies true Italian design. Every element used – from the finishes and fixtures, to the furniture pieces and colors – was designed with the highest quality materials and the utmost attention to detail to achieve a unique, one-of-a-kind product that will stand the test of time.”
Alexis Cogul Lleonart’s design model for UPH-6 at Brickell Flatiron expands upon CMC Group and Ugo Colombo’s ethos to create livable spaces with functional yet refined interiors that feel like home. Contrasting materials, vibrant hues, and playful lines were incorporated into a unique design aimed at complimenting the expansive views of the Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline. Wood panels, louvered walls throughout the main living spaces create a sense of warmth and integrity, while calling attention to the natural light and wide-open views coming from the two-story floor-to-ceiling windows. Thoughtful design elements include matte Venetian plaster and a custom glass staircase. The Italian-made kitchen from acclaimed maker Snaidero’s top tier “Elegante” collection features natural reclaimed wood, illuminated cabinets, custom engineered stone countertops and a custom bar area. Top-of-the-line Miele appliances are paired with a downdraft cooktop system and a built-in wine cellar. Large-format Italian travertine tiles adorn the floors, with 10-inch wood planks in the bedrooms. The master bedroom features a custom cove lighted ceiling with wood paneling, pendant lighting, and Lutron motorized draperies.
“A well-designed space must provoke, enhance and encourage a reaction,” said Alexis Cogul Lleonart, founder and principal of Doo Architecture. “If this happens, our work is completed.”
Brickell Flatiron’s architectural design is the brainchild of architect Luis Revuelta, who is behind many of Miami’s iconic high-rises including CMC Group’s Bristol Tower, Santa Maria and EPIC Residences & Hotel. On the inside, master Italian design architect Massimo Iosa Ghini uses inspiration from Revuelta’s curved façade to outline the tower’s sleek common areas and public amenity spaces, creating a seamless transition from exterior to interior.
Brickell Flatiron’s multi-million dollar privately owned permanent art collection showcases a series of exclusively produced large-scale paintings and sculptures by New York artist Julian Schnabel, as well as signature pieces by Italian artist Carlos Battaglia and Italian photographer Marco Glaviano, which are displayed across the building’s grand lobby and public amenity spaces.
Amenities include a 64th-floor rooftop level with a Sky Spa, Sky Pool and Sky Gym, providing 360-degree panoramic views of the bay and downtown Miami’s glimmering cityscape. Residents may access a host of therapeutic services and other offerings including private steam, sauna and locker facilities, a 6,300 square foot state-of-the-art fitness center with Pilates, spin and aerobics studios, and a juice bar. Additional features include a resort-style lap pool and separate children’s pool on the 18th floor, private movie theater with stadium seating, billiards room and lounge, clubroom, full-time concierge and 24-hour valet parking, on-site vehicle washing and detailing, and electric car-charging stations.
Residences range from one-to-five bedrooms, with a limited collection of penthouses that include two-story duplex and three-story triplex units. Each unit comes equipped with the finest materials from around the world, soaring ceilings with recessed lighting, energy-efficient windows, and elliptical glass balconies.
