Located in the cultural epicenter of Downtown, Miami, the 63-story, 709-foot tower will overlook the Perez Art Museum, the Frost Science Museum, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, and the American Airlines Arena.

The tower’s façade is comprised of Glass Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) and invokes its immediate surroundings in undulating, sculptural form from podium to pinnacle.

Beyond aesthetic, the tower’s exoskeleton is designed to carry structural gravity loads and to withstand high-velocity, hurricane wind forces.
