Designed by Miami architect Luis Revuelta and Italian architect Massimo Iosa Ghini, Brickell Flatiron is a new landmark—and not just because it’s Miami’s tallest residential development. The soaring glass tower has a distinctive silhouette, slender but curvy (belying its triangular, flatiron-like base) so that it appears fluid, almost wind-blown. The sinuous design is echoed by sleek and dynamic interiors, with glass walls, sweeping lines, and sculptural light fixtures. The building is crowned by a full-floor Sky Club, with a spa, fitness center, and pool with panoramic views of Downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay.
It isn’t hyperbole to say Luis Revuelta has been instrumental in shaping Miami’s skyline. Beginning with the Bristol Tower, completed in 1994, the Cuban-born architect has overseen some of the city’s most significant developments—and Brickell Flatiron is no exception. Named after New York’s iconic Flatiron Building, the 736-foot-tall, 64-story glass tower has a triangular shape that is disguised by curvilinear elements. The effect is one of energy and motion, a signature of Revuelta’s style: “I always strive to create in our buildings a sense of movement in an otherwise static, concrete object.”
