75-Story Baccarat Residences Brickell Gets Green Light: Related’s ‘Most Luxurious Product To Date,’ Jorge Perez Says

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:

  • Riverfront restaurant
  • Marina
  • Beauty salon and barber
  • Wine cellar
  • Private workspaces and business center
  • Spa
  • Clubroom
  • Game room
  • Children’s playroom
  • 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.

Notice he these renders never show the ground level and the interaction that the vast majority of people have with the building — at the street.

So we now want the Square feet of the project and also the amount of Human interactions this Building will create…These developers are selling units not Street interactions, eitherway Im sure the towers without parking podiums have a high level of your desired interactions….

You have to walk out of your building sometime to see the city. The streetscape matters as much to an owner as it does to everyone else in the city.

Related built a 5’ sidewalk next to SLS LUXE, which is full of trip hazards and too narrow.

Related did 500 Brickell and all of those tiles in the sidewalk are loose and a trip hazard.

“Related built a 5’ sidewalk next to SLS LUXE, which is full of trip hazards and too narrow.”
The SLX LUX was developed by Related and the Allen Morris Companies, and it has restaurants and outdoor dining around 3/4 of their linear exposure. It has a motor court so that the cars can enter on Miami Avenue and exit on SE 9th Street.
There is about 20 yards between the Botero Sculpture and motor court entrance on Miami Ave where the sidewalk narrows, and the rest of the sidewalk is wide and accommodating.

You would have to be extraordinarily uncoordinated, like well below average for any grade level, to have trouble walking on a sidewalk in front or on any side of SLS Lux.

There’s now a wider setback to Brickell that should help at the street level. Also it looks like the podium is not fronting Brickell.

That’s one of the most important, yet least asked, questions in Miami architecture. Too many people are looking at the immediate return investment and not at longevity or sustainability. The idea of a place having “good bones” is almost lost on builders and developers.”Value engineering” serves the developers at the expense of the buyers.

Don’t worry not long. Related is infamous for overpromising and underdelivering. They also love to cut high end finishes and included amenities and blame it on city codes etc. Buyer beware. All they care about is profits. Just ask anyone that owns a related unit. Build quality is subpar.

Now really folks. Mr. Perez has done more to develop the City of Miami than any other developer and Architectonica more than any other architect. Maybe the buildings are not the Taj Mahal but they are much better than vacant lots. I like what both have done.

rendering #7, with the car shouldn’t be in the ad as nothing there will ever look like this.
Additionally, the last pic shows a great lounge balcony but there is no glass railing or anything.
No one really believes they will be on the second story without a railing – nor less the 75th.

Incorrect Az.
“Little” more glass. People who understand luxury will understand that 8ft tall glass panels that extend from one corner of an apartment to the other is luxurious. If you are in your apartment, take a look.
IF you see floor to ceiling and wall to wall glass panels, then you are living in a very expensive luxury building. There are 6-10 of these such buildings in Miami.

Here are the three new FAA approved heights:

One Brickell, Tower I (550 feet above ground, 554 feet above sea level)
One Brickell, Tower II (828 feet above ground, 832 feet above sea level)
One Brickell, Tower III (877 feet above ground, 881 feet above sea level)

Not by guessing, because buildings flux in individual floor heights, lobbies double height, some floors 8 ft ceilings, the next has 10 ft ceilings, four levels of penthouses with 12to 15 ft ceilings each.

Good try Peter.

Projects get launched only with a moderate level of presales. When they’re completed they are close to sold out. Market dynamics are fairly strong now with high demand and little inventory. Even the resale inventory has shrunk. I wouldn’t bet on a flood of supply in 3/4 years.

yep. If you aren’t the one sitting water front, ocean front, then one day something may be built right up to your windows and your new view may be some lady in the unit across from you.

Check out the once beautiful southern views from Porsche Towers. A new building popped up two kleenex’s distance from their building. (They built near the south side of their property and the neighbors build on the north side of their, so the buildings are so close). Multi-Million dollar view now about 45 cents.
