Rafael Viñoly’s One River Point in Downtown Miami
In Downtown Miami, Rafael Viñoly’s latest luxury development is on point
Rafael Viñoly’s luxurious One River Point residential project, which takes a power pose on the Miami River basin, paves the way for significant development in Downtown Miami. With the start of sales in January of this year, the groundbreaking should take place at the end of 2017.
With two symmetrical towers connected by the Sky Bridge and a landscaped riverside park setting spanning 1.8 acres, the building will be a welcome addition to the recovering Miami River area.
Sky lofts and villas from 5,000 to 12,000 sq ft at the top of the towers are individually tailored to their owners, with expansive terraces and private pools
Viñoly, founding director of Rafael Viñoly Architects and the architect who brought us New York’s 432 Park Avenue and London’s walkie-talkie, is making similar architectural waves in Miami – the 60-story One River Point, commissioned by developer KAR Properties, will be one of the tallest building in the city.
The most striking design feature, the Sky Bridge, which hangs 250 meters above the Miami River, will house a 35,000 m² private club operated by Adrian Zecha, the Indonesian hotelier behind Aman Resorts.
One River Point residents have access to an oasis infinity pool and lap pool, poolside cafe and restaurant with butler service, private cabanas, and med spa
The entire property is a vertical oasis of resort-style living with a la carte dining and spa treatments available for the 350 residences with high ceilings from 3 to 12 feet, floor-to-ceiling windows, and glazed terraces. Designated art walls with workplace lighting and multi-zone climate control make these residences ideal for art collectors who can also store their collection in a central safe on site.
Viñoly definitely knows how to impress and creates a theatrical atmosphere with every flourish – a 25 meter high waterfall falls down a four-story podium at the entrance and inside there are changing exhibitions of curated works of art.
