The Perigon – First Miami Beach Condo Tower Designed By Rem Koolhaas’s OMA – Launches Sales

The Perigon has just launched sales in Miami Beach, becoming the first ever condo tower in the city designed by Rem Koolhaas’s OMA.

The 17-story tower will include 83 residences, ranging in size from 2,100 to 6,700 square feet. Prices start at $3 million.

Here’s how the architecture is described in a press release:

OMA designed the building as a series of “towers,” rotated to orient and enhance views from all residences toward the Atlantic Ocean, while also optimizing views of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline overlooking Miami Beach. The towers are merged and lifted into a singular form that responds to the panoramic views and frees the ground-plane below, creating the appearance that the building is only gently touching the ground. The resulting reduced footprint maximizes space for the gardens below. A subtle contrast in shape between the towers—organic meeting orthogonal—highlights their juxtaposition.

Tara Bernerd is overseeing interior design, with Gustafson Porter+Bowman doing landscape design.

Mast Capital and Starwood Capital Group are the developers.

Completion is scheduled for 2025.

Yes it’s a clean design with tons of glass and balcony space, and in a prime location. The target market for this project doesn’t want to live in some MDC kid’s art project.

Waste of space. Better off build a park so there is more natural Florida around. Developers just keep destroying South Florida. So sad

Looks like everything else on the Beach- full south and north glass balcony exposure. West view is nice. Wonder if the East view matches that west view shown.

I swear this looks like every other condo, and if the title had arquitectonica instead of OMA, people would be making the nonstop comments about arquitectonica.

LOL….we can go ahead and add the name ARQ on this design if you want to, the only problem is that no one would believe you! this project actually responds to site conditions unlike anything ARQ.

Stop swearing, because it doesn’t look like “every other condo”.
Pay particular attention to the fact that nearly every inch of the surfaces making contact with the exterior are glass. Now…look at your wall.
See the difference?
There are very few condos that have floor to ceiling and wall to wall glass. There are very few condos that even have 8ft deep balconies.

Not bad for this stretch, which is somewhat unimpressive beyond the Diamond Towers and Miami Beach Resort (former Doral Hotel)
