Vertical Construction Underway At 579-Foot Una Residences Tower In Brickell

A tower crane has been installed at the Una Residences site in Brickell.

Una Residences will rise 579 feet, making it one of the tallest in that part of Brickell.

Construction for the project began in the fall of 2020, with contractors working to build the deepest and most expensive underground parking garage in Miami’s history.

The planned 100,000-square-foot, 236-car garage reaches nearly 50 feet and three stories below sea level.

By burying parking underground, architects were able to eliminate a parking podium. Instead, there will be a grand, double-height lobby with 20-foot-tall glass windows overlooking a pool deck set directly above Biscayne Bay.

The tower is being designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill architects.

A total of 135 condos are being built. Completion is scheduled for 2023.

Oko Group and Cain International are the developers.

I don’t hate the builders but they are destroying the condominium next to them that happens to be my home. They destroyed the terraces d the garage of my building next to them and I wonder how were they be able to build a new condominium without a ser back??? We have ni terrace we cannot use the swimming pool , no East garage ?? Was this approved? Are we going to be compensated for all the inconveniences ?

I have to say as a contractor; spending 18 months building a 3 story underground parking garage sounds like such a grind. I wouldn’t want to do it. Hats off to them

Yeah. That’s why nobody in Miami does it. It’s faster and cheaper to throw in a nasty podium. Props to them.

Its going to pair well with the nearby future twin St regis

It will pair even better with a second tower, replacing the crummy adjacent 1960s and 1970s mid-rises sure to fail re-certification.

I have a feeling Four Ambassadors is going to be here until the end, sadly. Such a shame they were ever built.

I could tell it was a challenge when it came to the foundation pouring, and construction of the underground parking garage. This tower will definitely be a true landmark.

Two years ago, I was in doubt whether to buy a unit at the Una or the Aston Martin. Both were expected to be delivered around the same time. I ended up opting for the Aston Martin and I was lucky, because the Aston should be delivered in January 2023, while the Una, who knows when, probably because of the leaks that occurred when the garage well was drilled.

Looks like you made the right choice! Aston Martin is in a much better location also. That area of Downtown will be booming in the next few years.

Which floor in Aston?

On the 25th floor. Line 2. You can see the south beach of Miami Beach, the harbor, Brickell Key, the Rickenbacker Causeway and the western tip of Key Biscayne, Brickell Avenue and the Miami River. All floors have great views. Even the 3rd. The higher up, the better the view of Miami Beach.

Absolutely beautiful project, though I am not sure how excited I would be to be the guinea pig for a first of its kind building sitting atop a parking podium submerged in limestone.

It isn’t the first of it’s kind.
There are more than a dozen waterfront (some oceanfront) high-rises with underground parking.

Wish height is it, 579 FT, or 613 FT? I’m sure that site it’s not 34 FT AGL.

There’s still a large above grade parking podium that the pool and other amenities appear to be sitting on.

That isn’t a parking podium, it’s the lobby.

What good would a lobby be when you’d have to walk back outside, across the driveway and up the elevator to your unit? Whatever the use is, its a podium.

They said no podium, yet the pool has a stupid podium.

The western extension doesn’t appear to have the same scale and size in the different renderings. I wonder if this project will deliver to expectation or if it will be another South Florida over-promise and under-deliver project.

If you think this is an eyesore, what does that make the shitty older buildings directly adjacent to it?

He probably thinks the older buildings next to it are historical icons.
