One River Point, Bringing LIFE and LUXURY to the Miami River

LUXURY at its highest and best! Something Brickell has not seen before. Something Miami is yearning for! Two amazing 60 Story towers connecting both on top and bottom. On the bottom, an 85ft floating podium with a waterfall flowing over into a water feature dividing the valets and front doors from the park, river walk and river. The top connection offering a private club, Sky loft and two amazing 14,000 sqft Sky Villas with 10,000 sqft of outdoor space for each villa! No unit left without a view! No matter where you live in One River Point, you will have a view that you will enjoy from your indoor/ outdoor living space.
So… Do I have your attention yet?

Brickell to get 43-story hotel

Brazilian developer Galwan is moving forward with plans to build a 520-room hotel on Brickell’s ‘chicken lot’.
The company clinched a deal with Dade County last week for utilities that will allow them to build a 520-room hotel at 88 S.W. 10th Street. Galwan will pay a connection charge estimated to be $346,634.
The hotel is expected to carry the Ibis flag, a budget brand of Accor Hotels of France. It will rise 43 stories, including seven levels of parking and three levels of amenity and restaurant space.
Galwan bought the 22,770-square-foot property across from Mary Brickell Village earlier this year. Soil testing is already underway, and the company recently said that they expect to complete construction by 2018.
Investment for the project comes from 64 partners in Brazil, mostly from the state of Espirito Santo. Total investment is said to be around $130 million.
Arquitectonica is the project architect.

Memorial Day

The Marine Corps taught me to be a man. Taught me to be responsible. Gave me drive. Gave me an education – University and life. The Marine Corp motivated me to progress, to want more, to live above and demand the respect I have earned. But it also gave me nightmares, lost lives, lost friends and brothers. All of this added together and divided to an average made me the man I am today.
