What does Italian architect Renzo Piano have to say about Eighty Seven Park?
8701 Collins Avenue is the hottest property in Miami, and that is just with taking registrations of interest. Eighty Seven Park, designed by Renzo Piano offers unique luxury to this city that had seen it all, until now. This luxury residential building, once thought to be called Biltmore Terrace Hotel, goes the minimalist route with a pill-shaped design that fits is well with the Midcentury madness that has swept the country.
Eighty Seven Park features a private garden, an ocean-view pool, and underground parking to maximize the greenery. Additional focus on nature is presented through greenery landscaped by West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture of the Netherlands, As this is Miami, there is a rooftop pool perfect for cocktails and mingling. Offering 64 luxurious units within the tower, the luxury residence will certainly continue to generate interest. This, however, will come as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with the “starchitect” Renzo Piano.
With the last name of Piano, only beauty and mastery can be expected from one such person and this architect does not disappoint. In 1998, the Genovese architect earned the prestigious Pritzker Award. According to the official website, this award is given “to honor a living architect or architects whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture.” Almost a decade later in 2006, Piano was designated as a member of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential List.
Piano’s endless list of awards and acknowledgements cement his reputation as a master architect-excellent credentials for a man determined to continue the tradition of visionary beauty in Miami Beach with the revolutionary Eighty Seven Park, a residential structure. Piano took on the project for the stunning locale and welcoming community. A few months ago, the internationally renowned architect visited Miami Beach and sat upon the beach in the same way locals swear they never do. He experienced the vastness of the ocean and a strong sense of solitude. The dual nature of Miami is the ability to be immersed in nature almost to the point of feeling like a merman or mermaid, only to walk a few feet and be in an urban environment without pause. Miamians understand the duality of what makes the city both visually appealing and otherworldly. Thankfully, so does Piano, as exemplified in his architectural vision.
Piano, as explained at www.eightysevenpark.com, envisioned 16 suspended decks to capture the light and cadence of Miami’s greatest resource: the ocean. The simple design also highlights the craftsmanship of the decks. The essence of Miami, with the juxtaposition of a beach destination and financial hub of the Americas, is explored in the skilled mind and hands of an honored master architect.
This property is already generating buzz from New York City to London even though it is currently only taking registrations of interest at this point of time. The Piano designed structure will be available for investment, vacation, and residential options.
