Location / Street Address: 1100 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, Florida 33132
Miami Condominium + Hotel
The main entrance to the project is through a landscaped porte-cochere off NE 11th Street. The ground floor contains the residential lobby, hotel lower lobby, and restaurant which all front Biscayne Boulevard. Pedestrians can access the property directly from Biscayne Boulevard by passing through a deep, landscaped urban plaza, a result of the realignment to Biscayne Boulevard.
Residents and guests will enjoy unsurpassed views of Biscayne Bay and Museum Park from the elevated dining terrace. Entrance to the parking garage is also from NE 11th Street. Loading is provided via a pass-through condition with the ingress located on NE 11th Terrace and the egress on NE 11th Street. All loading operations occur within the building envelope. Access to mechanical rooms is located along NE 11th Terrace.
The podium contains the 56-key boutique hotel QULTURE BY ROCKRESORTS and sufficient parking for the entire development. The 2nd floor contains the hotel upper lobby, lobby lounge and parking; the mezzanine level contains the hotel business center, meeting rooms and parking. The 3rd through 10th levels contains hotel units and parking. The 11th level has storage areas, parking, exercise rooms and a spa. The north, south and west faces of the podium structure are clad in an open-air, decorative metal mesh.
The 12th floor has the pool deck, residential party room, planters and a water garden. It is lined on three sides by two-story residential townhouses that provide a sense of enclosure to the deck. An Asian-inspired, landscaped water garden envelops the poolside activities, thereby affording a level of privacy to the townhouses. The lap pool passes through an eight-story void in the tower and projects slightly toward Biscayne Boulevard, providing views through to the Bay and beyond to South Beach. At night the void is highlighted by dramatic illumination.
The 15th through 63rd levels contain the remaining residential units. The slender, L-shaped tower is oriented to maximize views of Biscayne Bay and the Performing Arts Center District. The tower itself is composed of a series of interlocking parallelograms that create variation in the form. The tower is clad entirely in clear glass with a slight blue tint. Floor slab edges are expressed and are white in color. Continuous, glass-railed balconies project along the east and north faces of the building. Differences in ceiling height between single-story and two-story units create visual interest in the balconies.
A vertical projection creates deeper balconies for upper-level residents along the northeast edge of the tower. This grid frame will be illuminated at night to serve as a beacon to the Arts District and downtown Miami.
Rooftop terraces are featured at the upper penthouse level. The “Marquis” penthouse occupies the tower’s highest levels and affords its resident with an unparalleled, panoramic view of greater Miami and the beaches.
