‘Remarkable’ 90-Story Major Supertall Condo-Hotel In Brickell Will Have Miami’s Only Silver & Gold Pool

New over-the-top details of the Major supertall tower planned in Brickell have been released as the developer prepares to launch sales.

Here’s a look at some of the key newly released points:

  • Major will have a silver and gold pool. “I want to celebrate this sexy City with an
    indulgent swim in the only silver and gold pool in Miami,” said tower designer William Sofield of Studio Sofield.
  • The porte cochere will be trimmed in gold leaf and clad in monolithic slabs of travertine, with a grand gold-beaded screen above emitting a deep, warm glow. “It will exude exuberant Gatsby-level energy and delight,” the developer said.
  • The crown of the tower “will be wrapped with a filigree of gold spheres and punctuated by extraordinary sculptures in the manner of Italian Futurism on each corner.”
  • The tower itself will feature a façade of ivory travertine and high-gloss steel columns to express enduring weight and substance while giving a defined graphic, vertical appearance, setting it apart from its glass and stucco neighbors.
  • Top off height for Major is planned at 90 stories, or 1,049 feet – “a new record height for Miami,” the developer said.
  • There will be 259 one to four bedroom hybrid condo-hotel units for sale, each with a “lockout” function, allowing conversion from residence to suite or guest room.
  • Units will come with custom furniture by Studio Sofield.
  • Prices will range from $1.6 million to $11 million. Penthouse prices have not been released, according to Bloomberg.
  • “From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, every whim and
    desire is anticipated,” with eight floors and 115,000 square feet of amenities, including multiple food and beverage concepts, entertaining, sports, leisure, wellness and fitness.

JDS and Major Food Group are the developers. Building & Interior Design is by Studio Sofield, with Restaurant Design by Ken Fulk. ODP Architecture & Design is the Architect of Record.

In a press release, JDS Founder & CEO Michael Stern called Miami “the best city in the world” and promised the new supertall would be “remarkable.”

Never trust early renderings! This is nothing short of amazing and unlike anything Miami has seen.
I love the stone work in the podium, the rooftop details, the colors, everything.

The UDRB will reject it and want something more shitty, i.e. Arquitectonica-ish, just like the previous office tower proposed for this site.

Yeah right.
They’ll be looking for galavanting balconies a la Architectonica

Remember, this isn’t a Related development. JDS has an insane quality track record, just look at 111 W 57th Street, the early renderings are identical to the finished project. This is going to be MEGA or should I say, “MAJOR”. Can’t wait.

Looks incredible. This tower and One Brickell City Centre will be 2 supertalls a few blocks from each other. Brickell continues to grow 🙂

That’s why I don’t understand why the height of a few buildings can’t be in increased to at least 1150ft?

Look, the cost of building a subway system in Miami would be astronomical due to the high water table. And the cost to maintain such a structure every year against leaks would be beyond what the residents of Miami/Dade County are willing to pay.

I think (hope) he means to expand metrorail. Building an underground rail system would be…silly.

As would expanding Metromover to South Beach because he wants a free ride. Metrorail is the way to go. Alas, most residences of this tower will still drive primarily… or even be driven by chauffeur.

As of now, all you can do is speculate if the Metromover is expanded to South Miami Beach. All this “free ride” BS has to end some day because right now the taxpayers in this county is being pushed to almost the limit.

888 Brickell is an office building. No one is getting “displaced”. If anything, there are a lot of contractors and laborers that will be making over 6 figures for at least 18 months. The 7-11 owners will be raking in the cash.

What do you mean willing to pay?
There’s no budget for it.
Besides, 4 % of the area uses transit.

Of course it does.

IF it doesn’t have a subway system, no one will ever migrate here. The cruise ship port will never be the largest in the world. The hotels on Miami Beach will never lead the USA in Average Daily Rate, Revenue per Available Room, and occupancy.

Without a subway, or a metro mover from my sofa to Wynwood, Miami will never host F1, Art Basel, a Superbowl, or any other major event.

A Subway, or railway to Miami Beach, or a Metro mover to Wynwood

MUST happen or Miami will just be a tiny little town that would never see any national attention.

Clearly…spending $100B on transit is the only possible way to make all these great things happen.

Some people who come on this site are talking about making the experience in the city and county at least 30% better by extending the Metrorail/Mover. No one is talking about silly shit like building or putting a Metromover stop at your or everyone’s front door. Plus, build at least a few resort casinos in this town for grown ups who aren’t afraid to go in one and produce a more memorable time for them and watch the tourism rise.

Have fun entering the parking garage. During peak hours you’ll probably spend 30 minutes just waiting for your turn to go in. Lots of pedestrians on that sidewalk, a stop light on the corner and one lane each way.

The tower, like Billionaire Road’s supertall towers will be mostly empty. They will be fourth, and fifth homes for the uberrich that buy them for investments and to park their money.

Sorry, check the renderings again. They will only demolish the Diario Las Americas building on the corner of 10th and Brickell. The uber-hideous parking structure spanning most of that block is here to stay.

Amazing how a parking podium, which unfortunately is a necessary evil, can look when done right. Meaning, no murals, assorted sheet metal, and/or jailhouse slit windows.

This group doesn’t have bots. You obviously don’t know much about ongoing projects in Miami. Most high rises in Miami are bland and all look like cereal boxes. This one is special bc it’s a super tall tower, Art Deco design, and truly luxurious.
