This 31-story luxury waterfront condominium on Brickell Avenue at the edge of Biscayne Bay is a rectangular prism made of horizontally striped masonry bands which act both as balcony parapets and as shading devices. A red masonry wall floats on the north side. Its skyline angles towards the bay and creates a privacy wall from the neighboring skyscrapers for the penthouse roof terrace. On the south side, an eight-story door breaks through the volume, exposing the red levitating wall. This space is a drive-through lobby. The 180-unit building sits on a podium which covers three levels of parking and steps down to a circular pool on the bayfront side. The project was featured on the front cover of Architectural Record in 1983.
