First Look Inside Brickell’s Supertall 90-Story Dolce&Gabbana Condo Hotel

Dolce&Gabbana and developer JDS unveiled new details and renderings yesterday of a 90-story supertall condo hotel they are planning at 888 Brickell.

The 1,049-foot building will be the tallest in Miami, the developer said. It will feature ivory travertine and matt black steel beams, along with a gold beaded ‘necklace’ towards street level, with Studio Sofield the architect.

Inside the building will be a Grand Lobby with two bars, six food and beverage outlets, a signature restaurant on the ground floor, and a Pool Club restaurant & bar.

The residential lobby will feature black marble and three grand custom-designed Venetian hand-made chandeliers.

The condo hotel will feature 250 rooms and suites. Buyers of residential units will be permitted to place their units in a hotel rental program to earn income, and larger units with more bedrooms will be convertible into smaller rooms with separate entries for more flexibility.

Dolce&Gabbana collaborated with M2Atelier studio to translate the ideas and concepts expressed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for the interior design of 888 Brickell.

A construction date was not released, but the project has been moving through the planning process. A sales office can be seen under construction around the corner from the development site.

One of my favorite buildings in development. This level of class is not something we see in Miami all the time.

This design is one of my favorites in Miami—finally bringing some ornamental detail to the skyline with its distinguished gargoyle crown.

Two and a half story tall statues on the corners of the crown, I’m in.

Saw new images of the pool deck, phenomenal. Those statues are metallic a nod to the monuments of past with a clear direction into the future.

Truly stunning, and more a New York City look than the typical Miami towers.

You must have missed the unveiling of Hudson Yards Phase II

Hudson Yards is a tourist destination only due to the HighLine. When inside the Mall, no one seems to have shopping bags, no one really lives there….. its a place to simply walk around in Air Con…..when in midtown. Neiman Marcus left. It was a simple idea in a very complex City.

Running circles from what perspective? New York City has CLASS, Miami, you just have to replace the ‘ ‘, with an ‘R’ and that pretty much sums it up

Your comment: How gauche! Many of the most successful businesses are based in Miami and throughout Florida, with a significant number from around the country relocating to Brickell… It seems you’re slipping, but since we are young, as you so eloquently pointed out, we will hold on tight and catch you if you fall.

Class LMAO I was born breed and raised in NY the only class it had was a first class stamp. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE NY the place I was born but we lost that class and prestige a long time ago. Now it’s time to let another city shine. You can have NY I’ll stay in sunny Miami.❤️

Not a fan of this proposed project. Narrow, not much of a view for first 60% of project. If you are going to buy a $5M Condo, are you really going to rent it out? Do you want to share your purported lux condo with the usual brickell renters? Will D&G be a sustaining name, product 30 yrs from now? Miami really does not know what the word luxury means. We only have a few real 5 star properties and 2 star wanna-be’s acting the posh life. Ok, build it the City needs the Taxes but as far as what it offers, location and costs, hard to see what the resales will look like, HOA’s, RE Taxes and other unknowns.

It’s a beautiful building, but enough with the branded buildings. It’s corny and will age poorly.

Would you rather have cheesy names like “Elev8?” Besides, it’s probably a licensing deal to sell condos and probably expires after a set period of time.

For a box, it’s really quite elegant.

It’s definitely more of a rocket shape, with the main part slimmer than the base—elegant and unique. 🚀

The building doesn’t taper as it goes up – the massing is two rectilinear forms.

Anonymous

Yes it does, it’s like a 3-tiered royal wedding cake or the Empire State Building, tapering as it goes up.

The classic Art Deco stepped effect can also be seen in iconic designs like the Chrysler Building and 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City.

Anon

Stepping is not tapering. Yes, it is stepped since the top rectangular mass is set back from the base rectangular mass.

But the mass of the tower does not get smaller with each floor going up the tower – thats tapering (like a torpedo).

Anonymous

I see! Tapering may not be the best term to describe the overall shape, but there is some tapering of the ornamental details. The massing steps up twice, from the base to the top mass, and from the top mass to the crown, which makes it different than a singular rectangle box—can’t wait to see this rise up.

Ornate it is, in a tacky way. then you have ornate in a classy way. This one is the first, primarily for one reason, The word Dolce & Gabbana. It is a dubaiesque way of saying in your face I’m rich. Which is quintessential to be tacky. LOL!!!

Exactly. I don’t know why people are taking offense – it is clearly meant to be tacky in the most fabulous way possible.

Dolce Gabbana is a brand. Not RL Polo preppy but gaudy Italian in a tongue in check way. Most italians do not dress this way but if they know, they know that its rather italian in a fun branded way. It is a club type fashion yet not really a full lifestyle.

This has real class. Tacky? That’s when things just don’t go together, like mismatched balconies or super bright colors trying to hide the not-so-great bits. But this? It grabs your attention in a good way, not too loud, just right for something this tall. It’s got details that freshen up the whole look, the kind of classy you might not have seen before, but it’s definitely classy in all the right ways.

Lets agree to disagree. Taste is the most subjective thing. What some people find classy some people find disgusting. At the end is just a preference.

I’ve always found it interesting how these renderings always fail to include existing buildings, like the Flatiron and SLS Lux.

Look again. SLS is there, but it’s behind 830 Brickell (the reflection is the glass), and look at the bottom and you’ll see the parking platform. Also, from that perspective, Flatiron won’t be there as you can barely see a part of the Mcitizen hotel.

Good, CitizenM has to be one of Brickell’s worst buildings after MyBrickell and 1028 SW 2nd Avenue.

Anonymous
25 days ago

Maybe 1028 will be sold off to the neighboring lot that’s being redeveloped to make room a more master planned block with green space, preserving the Banyan tree on the corner. It’s probably in everyone’s best interest to transition now, rather than getting sandwiched between two new modern luxury towers.

Love the cafe overlooking Miami Ave in CitizenM—it has one of the best street level interaction in Brickell, and amazing lobby, common areas, and interior designs.

Meanwhile JDS defaulted on their loan for Brooklyn’s tallest building and the project is going up for auction in a foreclosure action.

Brickell is not Brooklyn, doll.

This is highly desirable real estate where people want to live and work.
