Una Residences Tower Now 85% Sold, With Construction Continuing

Brickell’s 579-foot Una Residences is nearing sellout, and contractors continue to make progress on a giant subterranean parking garage beneath the building.

Approximately 85% of the development’s 135 units have already been sold and are under hard contract, with total sales completed since January 2021 exceeding $154 million, the developer said in a statement.

The sales surge helped the developer secure a $128.3 million construction loan earlier this year.

Contractors are now focusing on building a massive, three-story underground parking garage beneath the complex.

Work began in early 2020, with vertical construction planned for late 2021.

The developer said in April that the project remains on track to come out of the ground by the end of this year as originally planned.

The 47-story tower is scheduled to top off at 579 feet above ground in late 2022, with completion in 2023.

The project is being designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill architecture.

OKO Group and Cain International are the developers.

Depending on the success of this project specifically as it relates to execution the underground parking and how sustainable it is (after the first major storm) it could revolutionize a welcomed change in how towers are constructed moving forward as nobody wants to see this massive parking podiums. Realistically it will only be for the luxury market due to costs but still a refreshing approach to maximize above ground living space as well as aesthetics.

Sure, we can set aside the bleakness of Washington’s failures to consider creative alternatives presented by the private sector.

Parking podiums are aspirational.

Yes, you’re right. Nobody wants to pay to excavate and waterproof a multistory underground parking garage too.

Unless your a russian billionaire.

Three story bathtub next to the bay, what could go wrong?

There is actually a significant section of coral rock (a.k.a Miami rock ridge) that runs along the bay in that area. While still a significant challenge, I imagine the solid rock will help stabilize the structure. Anyways, its an ultra luxury building so they can afford the costly upkeep that such an amenity will require.

It’s not solid rock like granite. It’s porous, like coral rock.

It may not be granite, but it is compacted coral that has solidified like concrete over millions of years. As far a South Florida goes, it’s as good as you are going to get.

The OP is likely talking more about flooding. I’m sure there is proper sealing and/or drainage mechanisms to protect a bunch of rich people’s Bentleys and Maseratis.

There are plenty of underground garages in this part of Miami, from southern brickell to coconut groove that is hard rock

Not hard rock. It’s coral rock and that’s porous. Brickell City Center’s underground garage used a revolutionary technique that required freezing the rock so they could pour concrete foundations. Muy costly.

Nyet. Nice looking design but very questionable parking solution. I’d rather have an above ground parking podium.

In that case, go live in an Edgewater box next to a drug rehab facility.
