This 51 stories high ultra luxury Miami high rise was developed during the last decade of the glorious twentieth century. These incredible Brickell condos were delivered and finished in the year 1997 and were at that time the tallest residential luxury condos contemporary houses built in Miami. The building is the inspiration of Revuelta, Vega and Leon architects. This architectural firm is the responsible for some of Miami’s most notable condominium buildings like the neighboring tower of the Santa Maria Brickell, the Bristol Tower.
Many of the designs of this great architectural firm have a curvilinear pattern that can be appreciated in full use at the majestic Santa Maria Brickell condos. These curvy designs are reminiscent of the water movements and give this tall structure fluidity, freshness and a timeless contemporary look. The fantastic building was developed by Ugo Colombo who uses a lot of glass as a signature element of all his other well known developments like the Grovenor House in Coconut Grove and the Epic Residences in downtown Miami. But the Santa Maria Brickell remains as one of the most notorious and recognizable luxury residential building in all Miami. Even today with all the new Brickell condos that have been developed and finished no other Miami luxury building can compete with the boldness and presence of this majestic crystal architectural marvel.
This beautiful masterpiece seems to have set the pattern of great designs in Miami in other luxury condos like 900 Biscayne in downtown Miami and the Jade Brickell. All these tall residential luxury structures have also a dominating characteristic and that is a spectacular crown. But probably no other building crown was as spectacularly achieved as the one in the Santa Maria where the architects and the developer managed to incorporate an astonishing state of the art massive health club overlooking the Biscayne Bay.
This dynamic and daring curvy style with an impressive sense of motion that blends with the water reflections of the bay makes this luxury housing landmark one of Miami’s top modern architectural designs.
