The Una Residences—a sculptural 47-story condo tower proposed for 175 SE 25th Road in Brickell—took a key step forward this week by gaining the approval of Miami’s Urban Development Review Board.
The 579-foot-tall building will contain 137 units, 251 parking spaces, and a public baywalk with landscape design by Enzo Enea. Una comes from developer OKO Group and Chicago-based Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill Architecture—a firm that designed some of the globe’s tallest buildings including the 1-kilometer-tall Jeddah Tower currently under construction in Saudi Arabia.
According to the architects, Una takes its design inspiration from nautical themes with “ribbon-like curves inspired by the sinuous teak decking on the iconic Riva yacht. For more on the design be sure to check out the video below:
The firm is also reportedly looking to construct an 839-foot, near-supertall tower at 830 SE 1st Avenue, also in Brickell. Plans for that project were filed with the Federal Aviation Administration on August 22 and are currently under review, according to Next Miami.
