OKO Group Announces Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture for South Brickell Residential Tower

Development is the First Building in Miami for Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture

Second Project for Vladislav Doronin’s Miami-based OKO Group

MIAMI, Florida | October 13, 2016: OKO Group has appointed Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG) as the Design Architects of a new ultra-luxury condo tower in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood. AS+GG is known for their high-performance architecture in a wide range of typologies and scales, from low- and mid-rise residential, commercial, and cultural buildings to mixed-use high-rise buildings. Current AS+GG projects under construction include the world’s next tallest building Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia and Wuhan Greenland Center, a highly sustainable supertall tower in China, and the Astana Expo City in Astana, Kazakhstan. AS+GG Design Partner Adrian Smith also designed Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s current tallest building, while he was Design Partner at SOM Chicago, prior to the founding of AS+GG.

“Over the last two and a half decades I have built some of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe; a great synergy exists between Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill architects and OKO Group.” said Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of OKO Group. “This project, OKO Group’s second in our $1bn pipeline of projects in Miami, further demonstrates our commitment to the City and the people of South Florida. I am personally looking forward to working closely with AS+GG as we transform the South Brickell skyline.”

The project, a 47-story luxury residential tower, will be located on one of the finest streets in Miami, at 175 SE 25th Road, often referred to as ‘the Fifth Avenue of Miami’. The site is directly on Biscayne Bay and will replace an existing building. The design will take full advantage of this rare waterfront site and will leverage the features that bring people to Miami, namely expansive views, access to sun, and an indoor-outdoor lifestyle. AS+GG will infuse the project with their performance-based design approach, which considers the climate and environmental context.

“We are thrilled to be appointed for this project for OKO Group and to be designing AS+GG’s first Miami project,” said Adrian Smith. “We are impressed with OKO Group’s commitment to thoughtful design and quality construction and we look forward to creating a world-class building for them.”

This marks the second residential development for OKO Group in Miami. They are currently developing Missoni Baia in the Edgewater neighborhood, which will be the first residential building from the famed Italian fashion house. The 146-residence luxury building recently launched sales and is slated for completion in 2019.

Although I hate comparing our city to NYC, I think Brickell Ave is our “5th Ave”.

Wonder what will be built on the 8 + acres located next to it. At the moment one 21 story Condominium sits on this huge piece of land which can have thousands of apartments and more buildings. It also has a Brickell Avenue address and huge water frontage. Public records show many units purchased under various corporate names.

Had high hopes for Vlad but still not a single shovel in the ground. Russian Moishe Mana. All talk, no action. Spending money on architects, talking to brokers, etc. but just to be relevant so they can flip their land.

It’s a glass box, you simpleton (pun intended). Miami has plenty of them already. It might be upscale, but it’s so boring.
