Bruce Berkowitz’s Fairholme Capital will probably have the coolest offices in Miami.
Fairholmes’ new headquarters will be housed on the upper floors of a windowless, inverted pyramid that will be built at 2626 Biscayne Boulevard, according to plans obtained exclusively by exMiami.
A museum will also be included in the building, with the ground and second level devoted to gallery space. Parking will be buried below grade.
The building might look ominous to passerby, but the interiors will be full of light. A mechanized sunlight system is planned for the roof, regulating natural light during the day. Inside, a massive, LED-lit aluminum sculpture created by James Turrel will be suspended from the roof of the building.
Fairholme’s office area will be open to the gallery below, and will include a kitchen with a wine cellar, a living area, a ‘sky room’, and a large terrace overlooking Biscayne Boulevard.
Artist Richard Serra is designing a 216-foot cortex steel sculpture for the plaza. Arquitectonica is handling architecture and landscape design.
Fairholme has billions in assets under management. Berkowitz has been called ‘the megamind of Miami’ by Fortune magazine.
