SLS Brickell - New construction in Brickell

SLS-Brickell
With condominium construction in Miami real estate kicking into high gear, the Related Group seems to be at the helm of many of the projects.  From those currently under construction like My Brickell, Millecento and Apogee Beach in Hollywood to the pre-construction condominiums like Icon Bay and Beachwalk in Hollywood, The Related Group knows that there is high demand for condominium and hotel space in South Florida especially in Brickell.  According to a recent article in Daily Business News, “Brickell is experiencing a demand for hotel rooms.”  Because of this, the Related Group is responding with a new project combining a luxury boutique hotel with luxury condominiums which we refer to as SLS Brickell as the exact name has not yet been announced.   

SLS Brickell
Just announced, the SLS Brickell project includes a 52-story building with three restaurants; a luxury boutique hotel occupying the 3rd through 9th floors; and 451 condominium residences from the 10th to the 51st floors (11 units per floor).  The Related Group and Philippe Starck, who also designed Icon Brickell, have enlisted the architectural firm of Arquitectonica to design SLS Brickell.  Known for other architectural masterpieces in Miami including the Miami Museum of Art, the South Miami Cultural Arts Center, and others, Arquitectonica is also designing the upcoming Related Group residential project, Icon Bay.   Plans currently call for the condominium residences to include one, two and three bedroom units all with the square footage ranging between 717 square feet to just over 1,500 square feet.  Just like the other Related Group projects, SLS Brickell will definitely be a beacon in Miami architecture.
