Related Group and SH Hotels and Resorts announced today that they are moving forward with plans to build a 75-story Baccarat Residences tower in Brickell.
It will be the most luxurious project that Related has ever built, founder Jorge Perez told Forbes.
Sales are now underway for 360 luxury condo units – with the smallest unit size starting at a relatively large 1,330 square feet (the largest is over 7,000 square feet).
The announcement comes despite recent archaeological findings on the project site following demolition of an older building there. The developers appear confident that they will still be able to move forward.
Completion of the 75-story tower is set for 2024, Related said. The completion date implies groundbreaking will likely take place in 2021.
Arquitectonica is the architect, with interior design by Meyer Davis and landscape design by Enzo Enea.
Arquitectonica’s design for the tower is said to be inspired by crystal. The facade will have chiseled glass that reflects light and water.
Interior design by Meyer Davis will be a combination of 18th century French architecture and 1930s Art Deco style.
Amenities at the tower will include:
Beauty salon and barber
Private workspaces and business center
Grand Salon event room
Barry Sternlicht’s SH Hotels is also partnering on the Treehouse Hotel at the 62-story 1 Southside Park under construction nearby in Brickell.
