Una Residences made The Nexi Miami’s roundup of the 21 tallest towers going vertical in the booming Florida city. When complete, this elegant collection of waterfront Brickell condos will stand 46 stories tall and feature a tapering facade that evokes a ship’s prow cutting through the waves of Biscayne Bay. The tower is being designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the firm behind iconic skyscrapers around the world, and will feature spacious homes with sweeping Atlantic Ocean and Downtown Miami views as well as residential amenities centered around the tower’s breathtaking waterfront location, including a private marina and multiple swimming pools.
The weather outside may be frightful—but only for those who have to shiver and brave the frigid winters up north. Down here on the idyllic Brickell Waterfront, owners of the new luxury residences at Una are taking full advantage of endless opportunities for sunbathing and lounging poolside. There’s no better resolution for the new year than to spend time replenishing your intake of Vitamin D with a little help from the exclusive amenities at Una Residences, tailor-made to make the most of Miami’s picturesque weather.
The capacious third floor terrace is the ultra-luxe spot for a healthy dose of relaxation and recreation. Enjoy the views of the lapping waves on the Biscayne Bay and Una’s exclusive boat slips. Or meander under the expertly landscaped palm trees and foliage that provide a canopy of shade and lush, green privacy pods.
There’s plenty of open space as well for lounging, catching up on the latest bestseller, or working a winter tan, by one of the terrace’s three pools – the bayfront pool, lap pool and family pool. The sun reflecting against the glistening water is also the perfect backdrop for whipping up a meal for family and friends in one of the designated grilling areas, or grabbing a drink and entertaining at the outdoor bar.
The perks at the Una Residences extend beyond the amenities terrace to the Grand Bay Club on Key Biscayne. Residents enjoy exclusive access to the private beachfront club, with a suite of amenities—from towel service to a menu of fine cuisine, snacks, and freshly mixed drinks served poolside. Take a dip in the beach, warm your toes in the sand, and enjoy the start of a new year with a steady stream of Miami sun.

Brickell Magazine caught up with Kari Fernandez, Fortune Development Group VP of Sales for a pair of new OKO Group properties going up along the shores of Biscayne Bay in Miami, for the magazine’s Powersuits in Paradise feature. “My favorite part of the business is being able to interact with our teams,” said Fernandez, who has sold preconstructed developments in Downtown Miami for nearly two decades. “I enjoy being able to understand their strengths and needs and effectively provide them with the tools they need.” With a portfolio full of properties like Una Residences, the forthcoming collection of waterfront Brickell condos from Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, Fernandez finds it easy to give her all each and every day.
No doubt about it: Winter has arrived in the USA. But while most of the country is bundling up and hunkering down for the low temps, lucky residents of Miami get to enjoy near-perfect weather — warm, sunny days and deliciously cool evenings. There’s no better place to enjoy these evenings than the luxury downtown condos at Una Residences. Get a breath of fresh sea air out on the terrace, or relax with a drink in your well-appointed living room while marvelling at dramatic sunset views of Biscayne Bay through floor-to-ceiling windows. The Brickell waterfront condos at Una Residences are the perfect place to up the cozy quotient in a way only Floridians can. And nearby, you’ll find myriad ways to indulge in tasty treats, decor, and soul-warming cuisine.
Here are some of our favorite ways to get cozy in Miami at Una Residences.
Give in to Your Sweet Tooth
One of the great delights of this time of year — or any time of year, for that matter — is chocolate. Nibbling on a bonbon or sipping a piping-hot mug of cocoa is a direct avenue to sheer bliss. Take your chocolate-tasting experience to the next level when you visit the Garcia Nevett Chocolatier de Miami. This is no mere candy store; it’s a cathedral of cacao owned by two sisters who are devoted to purveying only the finest and best-sourced chocolate. It is, after all, consistently ranked as one of the best chocolate shops in the nation. Many of Garcia Nevett’s chocolates, like those in their Flavors of Florida assortments, include South Florida-inspired ingredients, such as vanilla, rum, honey, citrus, and, of course, sea salt. For extra-special occasions, be sure to order one of their mouthwatering chocolate cakes.
Add a Little Sparkle to the Season
Whether you’re looking for a hint of holiday cheer or want to completely revamp your furnishings, the vaunted department store Aliss is the place to shop when you are searching for something a cut above in terms of style and quality. Pick up some seasonally themed table settings replete with wintry designs. Or perhaps a piece of decor like sparkly faux trees will create just the right mood. If you really want to impress guests this year, take a look at the store’s collection of modern furniture designs that will perfectly complement the sweeping lines and layout of your home at Una Residences.
A Winter Feast
There are still a few months before you have to be in “beach ready” shape, so take this time to feast on whatever your heart desires. We recommend Fi'lia, whether you order takeout or are dining in. This Brickell mainstay offers delectable Italian fare in a sleek, modern setting. Keep it healthy with a light yet tasty shrimp salad, or go over the top with a comforting portion of chicken parmesan smothered in a tart tomato sauce and blanketed with creamy, fresh mozzarella.
However you choose to spend your evenings this season, there’s no better way to wind the night down than to curl up under a cashmere blanket with a glass of wine, and take in the stunning views from the comfort of your luxury condo at Una Residences.
When creating the eye-popping design for the waterfront condos at Una Residences, architects Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill envisioned a grand entrance lobby that framed the sweeping view of Biscayne Bay with its double-height windows. Nearby, a resort-style pool would provide residents with a relaxing bayside amenity, making them the envy of every other Brickell resident. The only problem was figuring out just where the architects could hide the building’s three-story parking garage. In residential buildings in South Florida, the garage would normally form the building’s podium. This would elevate the lobby and pool at Una above the water level — depriving residents of intimate waterfront views.
Work on this solution began in November. The general contractor for Una Residences is collaborating with specialty subcontractor Keller to embark on a massive engineering project that will create a unique three-story parking garage beneath the forthcoming tower, providing residents with watertight storage space for their vehicles hidden below the sand and surf.
The construction process sounds more like an experimental science project than a feat of civilian engineering. The first step involved drilling 800 holes, each 50 feet deep, and then filling them with cement and water to create an interlocking series of pillars that together form a massive underground cube — a cube that will eventually be hollowed out to create the garage. By changing the composition of the soil, construction crews are creating the equivalent of a giant waterproof “bathtub” that will protect the garage and the building’s foundation from groundwater.
By early next year, crews will be drilling 135-foot-deep piles to support the garage and tower. Then, they will excavate the loose-mix soil inside the concrete tub to reveal the new, watertight underground form that will ultimately be the garage, and begin the process of constructing and pouring the foundation for the tower itself. After that, construction should progress fairly quickly, with crews adding a floor a week until the tower tops out in late 2022.
The result will be a striking new addition to Miami’s Brickell neighborhood. The tower’s silhouette bows out like the prow of a ship, while its facade flows like water around the sleek hull of a yacht. Inside, the spacious Brickell condos will range in size from two to five bedrooms and feature unobstructed Miami skyline and ocean views. And residents will enjoy access to a suite of resort-caliber amenities, including the aforementioned waterfront pool, an Aman Resorts-inspired spa and steam room, and a private marina right in front of the tower.

For the first time in over a decade, a new waterfront residential tower is going up on the shores of Biscayne Bay in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood. Dubbed “Una Residences,” this sleek tower is being developed by OKO Group and Cain International, with design by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, who took inspiration from classic yacht design when creating the building’s shape and selecting materials. The resulting Brickell condos will be decked out in lacquered wood and stainless steel and look out over the sweeping vistas of Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami, while residents will have convenient access to the building’s suite of luxury amenities, including a private marina so they can store their own watercraft close to home.

In the mood for a tasty Thanksgiving dinner, but not in the mood to make it? Una Residences is surrounded by excellent restaurants that can lay on tantalizing, festive feasts — some traditional, others with an inspired spin.
The Rusty Pelican
Set in beautiful Key Biscayne, The Rusty Pelican offers a spectacular waterfront location that makes it a wonderful place to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner — or in this case, Thanksgiving brunch. A festive platter of chilled seafood and smashed avocado tartine is followed by a mouthwatering series of mains — select from crab cake Benedict, chicken and waffles, or the wild mushroom pappardelle. Traditionalists needn’t worry: salt-roasted turkey in a shallot and dijon gravy is also on the menu, served with all the trimmings, naturally. Seeing as you’re celebrating, it’d be rude not to sample a Rusty Pelican cocktail; we recommend The Bay Blossom, mixed with vodka, elderflower liqueur, and homemade ginger syrup. They’re dishing this feast up on Thanksgiving Day only, so be sure to make a reservation.
The Brickell branch of Argentine restaurant Novecento is once again treating dinner guests to a special Thanksgiving menu. Traditional slow-roasted turkey breast gets a twist here, paired with a zingy passionfruit sauce — plus, there are sides of scallion-studded mashed potato and grilled asparagus with parmesan. The usual pumpkin pie is switched out for a spicy strudel, crammed with cranberries, raisins, and cinnamon. If you’d prefer to impress guests at your waterfront condo, Novecento is also offering a Thanksgiving menu for six, delivered to your door. Maravilloso!
Malibu Farm Miami Beach
Enjoy all the satisfaction of putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table — but without all the rigmarole of cooking it — thanks to Malibu Farm Miami Beach’s pickup option. From now until Nov. 29, you can choose herb-roasted turkey with pumpkin bisque, or honey-pineapple-glazed holiday ham. Both options come with festive fixings and serve six to 10 guests — all that’s left for you to do is to set the table in your condo living room, and crack open a bottle of fizz. On the day itself, Malibu Farm Miami Beach is also offering an eat-in Thanksgiving feast.
Bourbon Steak Miami by Michael Mina
Fancy switching your bird for beef? Bourbon Steak’s Thanksgiving menu features — you guessed it — steak. Lots of it, too: choose from filet mignon, New York strip, Reuben-style short rib, and skirt steak, among others. (You can also plump for wood-grilled turkey with cider-glazed yams and black truffle gravy.) There’s pumpkin pie or cranberry cheesecake mousse to follow, and — given the name of the restaurant and the occasion — there’s only one drink to round off the evening: a Wild Turkey Rare Breed bourbon. Happy holidays!
Details are emerging about the construction process for the underground garage at Una Residences in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood. When complete, this three-story garage will be Miami’s deepest parking structure, a necessity due to the tower’s prime location right on the Biscayne Bay waterfront. The general contractor has enlisted specialty subcontractor Keller International to help build the garage, a process that involves drilling 800 holes and filling them with concrete and water to change the soil mixture before hollowing out the resulting cube to create a watertight “bathtub.” Only once the garage is complete will vertical construction on this sleek collection of Brickell condos begin, with an expected delivery date in 2023.
When Una Residences is complete in 2023, the 579-foot-tall tower will rise on the shores of Biscayne Bay from a narrow base that bows out like the prow of a ship. While most condo towers rest atop a parking podium, OKO Group, the developer behind this collection of Brickell condos, is digging 50 feet below to construct Miami’s deepest parking garage, a watertight, three-story structure that will be “hidden” beneath the sleek Una Residences tower. This subterranean feature will require crews to change the composition of the soil to create a massive watertight “bathtub” before pouring the foundation and installing the columns that will hold up not only the garage but the building above.
OKO Group is tapping into its experience with subterranean waterfront construction to bring the new garage beneath Una Residences to life. The firm, which oversaw construction of a 72-foot-deep garage alongside the Moscow River, took the parking structure underground in order to avoid saddling the building with a visible parking podium, preserving architects Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill’s sleek silhouette design. When complete next year, the three-story garage will be Miami’s most expensive and deepest underground parking structure, a feat made more impressive by its waterfront location. The garage will also serve as the base for the sleek 57-story Una Residences tower, which will stand nearly 600 feet tall and provide residents of its luxury Brickell condos with panoramic Biscayne Bay views when it is complete in 2023.
Miami’s Most Expensive, Deepest Underground Garage Now Underway At The 47-Story Una Residences In Brickell
Contractor Civic Construction is hard at work digging deep below Miami’s Brickell neighborhood as part of the massive construction project that is Una Residences. This forthcoming collection of luxury Brickell condos will sit atop Miami’s deepest subterranean parking garage, which will delve 50 feet below sea level and hold 236 cars. Construction of the garage as a watertight underground box will take a few stages, the first of which involves a deep-soil-mixing process that will essentially create a giant waterproof “bathtub” inside of which the rest of the garage will be built. Then, when the garage is complete, the tower will begin to go vertical, with an expected completion date in 2023.
Una Residences began with a singular vision of a sleek waterfront tower overlooking the waters of Biscayne Bay, but construction on the collection of Brickell condos is beginning 50 feet below sea level with the building’s record-breaking parking garage. When complete, this three-story subterranean structure will hold 236 cars in a watertight “bathtub” that is being painstakingly constructed via a sophisticated process that involves pumping concrete into hundreds of holes, changing the soil composition to create a watertight seal around the garage. When completed late next year, the garage will serve as the base of the tower itself, which is projected to rise about a story a week before topping off in 2022.
Una Residences, the new collection of Brickell condos for sale from OKO Group, is combining two things Miamians love: waterfront living and luxury watercraft. The tower, which is slated for completion in 2023, is being designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill, famous for supertall and uniquely shaped buildings around the world, and AS+GG is delivering once again on the shores of Biscayne Bay. “We drew inspiration from the elegant shape and opulent materials used in classic yacht design,” said Adrian Smith, whose firm produced a silhouette that bows out like the front of a ship and interiors that will be decked out in the lacquered wood and stainless-steel features found on wooden yachts.
Even in sunny Miami, Florida, a little rain falls every now and then. When blue skies turn gray, there’s no better place to be than in the luxurious Downtown apartments of Una Residences right on the Bay. Here in these Miami waterfront homes, you can turn a stormy weekend into one of tranquility and relaxation as you take advantage of Una Residences’ stellar amenities and singular location.
So, while you might not be sunning on the beach, or lounging in the lush Enzo Enea-designed gardens, or sipping a drink with the family by one of the many pools, there is still plenty to do.
Give yourself a break from the hustle and bustle of Miami weekends and take a spa day without ever leaving home. Catch up on your workouts on calorie-burning cardio machines in Una Residences’ state-of-the-art gym. A drizzly weekend means there is lots of time to get a few more reps than usual at the weights station or to really stretch and breathe in the on-site yoga studio. Don’t forget to finish any workout with a visit to the steam and sauna rooms, where tense muscles and any worries of the day you might have will almost literally melt away in the ultra-soothing and warm atmosphere.
Who knows? You might be inspired by the spa-like surroundings and book yourself a treatment at a nearby spa. Exhale envelopes every guest in a relaxing and sophisticated atmosphere. You’ll feel your shoulders ease up from the moment you step inside. While there, your every need will be attended to, from facials to waxing. The massage menu at Exhale is extensive, utilizing methods from around the globe to ease your muscles and your mindset, whether you’re in for an intense sports massage or a gentle prenatal stretch. Book an appointment now and truly exhale.
Another spot spa-ready Miamians frequent is The Standard Hotel. They are known for their head-to-toe treatments, whether an intense body scrub or a lifting facial. Just keep in mind that their normal spa amenities have been temporarily relocated to the “private Spa Suites and Mud Lounge” during renovations.
A day of utter relaxation can work up an appetite. But you’ll have the best seat in the house if you order in and eat at home. Here’s how: choose mouthwatering, fresh sushi from Obba Sushi. Put your take-out onto proper plates and take in the Bay views through floor-to-ceiling windows, safe from the elements. Don’t forget: a rainy weekend in Miami also requires a few libations and perhaps a movie with friends in Una Residences’ private screening room.
With all of the enjoyment you’ll have during a weekend at Una Residences, you’ll almost wish the Miami weather wasn’t as gorgeous as it typically is—almost.
As Architect Magazine, New Atlas, and Construction Review Online have recently noted, construction is in process at Una Residences, the second Miami residential project from renowned developer OKO Group. Meanwhile, construction on Missoni Baia, the other OKO initiative that’s going vertical along Miami’s waterfront, is now more than half complete, and the developer expects to deliver the first of its 249 Edgewater condos in 2022. Missoni Baia is being designed by Asymptote Architecture and designer Paris Forino with oversight by the Missoni family, and the result will be a Missoni runway show brought to life. Residents of these luxury waterfront condos will enjoy chic, minimalist interiors and access to a suite of resort-style amenities, including a colorful pool deck, multiple pools, and one of the city’s largest private spas.
Construction has begun at Una Residences, the yacht-inspired collection of Brickell condos on the Biscayne Bay waterfront from renowned architects Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill. When complete in 2023, the first waterfront project in the neighborhood in over a decade will stand 47 stories tall and feature 135 luxury residences with private elevator access, private terraces, and panoramic Miami and Atlantic Ocean views. The building’s interiors are clad with materials like lacquered wood and stainless steel, nods to the iconic Italian Riva yacht, while its silhouette tapers near the base to suggest a ship’s prow breaking through waves. Residents will have access to a suite of resort-style amenities, including multiple pools, a fully equipped spa, and a private theater.
Have you ever wondered how Brickell got its name? Or imagined what the area looked like a hundred years ago? Let’s travel back in time to the founding of this downtown Miami district — long before Una Residences was here — and see how it evolved over the years to become one of the most coveted spots in the city.
Brickell Is Born
William and Mary Brickell would barely recognize the modern-day Miami they helped found. When the homesteading family arrived here back in 1871 — to claim the land they’d purchased that stretched from today’s Brickell south to Coconut Grove — it was dense with foliage. It was also close to land that is still occupied by the Miccosukee Tribe and the Seminole Tribe — Native Americans with whom the Brickells traded. But it wasn’t long before the Brickells were making their mark with a building project that would change the area forever.
The Brickells were hardly alien to upmarket housing. When William had worked as an aide to President Abraham Lincoln, he’d lived for a while with Mary in the White House. After the couple bargained to have a new railroad run all the way to Miami — making the area infinitely more valuable —the Brickells began building luxury mansions with grand, colonial architecture and palm-studded gardens sweeping down to the waterfront. Celebrities of the day, such as Louis Comfort Tiffany, made this “Millionaire’s Row” their home, and the area was firmly on the map.
Not many of Brickell’s early-20th century mansions survive. From the 1970s, they were gradually replaced with new towers and apartment buildings. And a commercial boom in the early ‘80s led to the construction of many of the waterfront office towers we know today. A second building boom — this one focused on condos and apartments — arrived in the 2010s, cementing Brickell’s reputation as a diverse and highly desirable district. Today, it is also one of the largest financial districts in the United States.
One of the latest condominiums to grace the Brickell waterfront is Una Residences — a graceful, curvaceous building that melts into the Miami skyline, yet is instantly recognizable. Like those mansions of a century ago, comfort and style is at the forefront. Una residents can luxuriate in vast living quarters with striking bayfront views, take a dip in multiple private pools, and sip cocktails in armchairs in the Owners’ Lounge. And when you get the chance, remember to thank the pair who made Brickell a reality: the Brickell Mausoleum at Mary Brickell Park is just a short drive away.
In our fast-paced and ever-changing world, it’s important to maintain a healthy body and mind. The team at Una Residences uses a range of wellness techniques to stay centered, and in this post, we’ll pass along some helpful fitness tips to future residents of these Brickell condos. So, whether you’re eager to plumb the depths of the human mind or are just looking for a healthy meal you can make at home, we’ve got you covered.
Yale University psychology professor Laurie Santos is leading a wellness revolution by bringing the scientific tools of her trade to bear. Future residents of the Miami waterfront homes at Una Residences can sign up for her class The Science of Well-Being on the online learning portal Coursera. Using psychological research, Santos has combined the academic and the practical to create a series of lessons that help students break harmful thought patterns and incorporate wellness activities into their lives, all with the goal of living a happier life. But don’t take our word for it: Nearly 3 million students have signed up for this class through Coursera, making Santos something of a happiness guru.
Future residents of these Miami Brickell condos who love listening to podcasts should check out the New York Times’ list of “7 Podcasts for a Healthier Mind and Body,” which recommends everything from a program on motivational running to a deeply researched examination of our healthcare system. Tune in to the “Mental Illness Happy Hour,” hosted by comic Paul Gilmartin, for a wry examination of the personal traumas experienced by various comedians. Or, try “The Nutrition Diva’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Eating Well and Feeling Fabulous” to hear nutritionist Monica Reinagel’s thoughts on subjects ranging from nondairy milk alternatives to the health impacts of various diets.
When complete, the homes at Una Residences will feature spacious kitchens decked out in luxurious finishes and equipped with state-of-the-art appliances. Soon-to-be residents already fantasizing about their future kitchens should head to delish.com’s list of “81 Healthy Dinners You’ll Actually Look Forward to Eating” and try their hand at some of the dishes there. New takes on Miami seafood classics like blackened tilapia and honey garlic glazed salmon are sure to be hits, while healthy spins on gluten-free pasta and lasagna are sure to keep amateur chefs busy (and full).

What’s the best part of living in the Brickell condos at Una Residences? Is it the ultraluxe design, the superior amenities, or the jaw-dropping homes that blend indoor and outdoor living flawlessly? While life in these singular homes along the waterfront offers lots of perks, perhaps the most significant advantage is the chance to make any and every day a beach day.
And residents of these downtown Miami condos have the added pleasure of exclusive access to one of the city’s most sought-after beach clubs, the Grand Bay Club — just a 15-minute drive from Una Residences. You and your family and friends will be transported to a sandy paradise where an elegant setting meets graceful Floridian hospitality, giving you an experience available only to a select few.
It all starts the moment you hand your keys over to the valet and make your way into the Grand Bay Club. It’s a sanctuary where luxurious Miami living is elevated to an art form, thanks to the sophisticated design and meticulous attention to five-star service. Direct beach access means you could be slathering on the Anthelios sunscreen and firing up your Kindle out on the sand in just minutes. Use the complimentary towel, chair, and umbrella service to make your beach day even more convenient and comfortable. Or, take your outing to the next level by renting an oceanfront cabana. These exceptional retreats offer showers, restrooms, and even housekeeping services.
If you’ve had enough of the beach, or simply prefer soaking in less salty waters, make your way to Grand Bay Club’s sundeck and pool, where you can sunbathe or take a dip in the Jacuzzi. The pool is heated year-round and, yes, the towel, chair, and umbrella service is available in the pool area, too.
Chat with friends and family over a relaxed poolside nibble or drink. And if you want a more substantial meal, look no further than the Clubhouse Restaurant, where mouthwatering cuisine is served in a chic atmosphere.
Feel like burning off the calories from that delicious meal? With your membership to the Grand Bay Club, you have access to the state-of-the-art health and fitness center, where you can get in some pre- or post-swim cardio and strength training. Afterward, you can relax your muscles in the steam room or sauna.
For the perfect finish to your day at the beach, wind down at the bar lounge or tiki bar at Grand Bay Club. There’s nothing like watching the sun set over Biscayne Bay and knowing that when you live in the singular Brickell Miami condos at Una Residences, you can experience this spectacular sight anytime you wish — whether from your private terrace or in the idyllic surroundings of the Grand Bay Club.

Craving the mood and flavor of the Caribbean this summer? The Bahamas’ Bimini Islands lie just 50 miles off the Miami coast — making this resort paradise a quick and easy sail. The Bahamas is also taking all the necessary precautions to ensure visitors have a safe stay. With sunglasses and sunscreen at the ready, it’s time to set a course for the perfect summer getaway.
Exploring the Islands by Day
There’s plenty to do on the westernmost strip of the islands. Grab a tasty lunch from the Stuart Conch Salad Stand, and relax on the beach with an Ernest Hemingway novel. (The writer had close ties to Bimini and its thriving fishing culture.) Take a boat ride to East Bimini to visit the mystical “Healing Hole” hidden away in the mangroves of Bonefish Creek. Those who swim in its waters swear by their healing properties. While here, you’ll see a bust of Martin Luther King Jr., who visited the island in 1964 and 1968. You’ll find another bust of King — who is greatly revered here — at the Bimini Craft Center in Alice Town. Another must-visit during the day is the jaw-dropping Dolphin House Museum. It’s a live-in work of art, with the walls covered in shells, coins, tiles, and bottles — although we’re not convinced it’s the right look for your Brickell condo.
Take the Short Hop to Gun Cay Island
Jump on a boat headed due south from Bimini, and in no time you’ll reach Gun Cay Island. Breathe in the fresh sea air at Honeymoon Harbor, and be sure to get some snaps of the azure waters, freckled with violet coral reef shadows. The waters around Gun Cay are as wonderful for swimming as they are for looking. Take a dip, or go snorkeling with the rays. There are also options for kayaking, diving, and fishing around Gun Cay — you can easily spend a day here exploring the coastline. Look out for the pretty Cat Cay lighthouse while on this jaunt from Bimini.
Evenings on Bimini
As the sun sets on Bimini, the islands become even more magical. Watch the fishing boats bobbing with the waves while you sip a Bimini Special cocktail. Best described by Hemingway in his novel “Islands in the Stream,” it’s a “tall cold drink made of gin, lime juice, green coconut water, and chipped ice with just enough Angostura bitters to give it a rusty, rose color.” Next, call in at a waterfront restaurant, such as My Three Daughters or Bimini Big John’s, who have an unerringly superb selection of seafood dishes on offer. As for places to lay your head at night — Bimini has ample options. Go for the familiar luxuries of the island’s Hilton hotel, or stay somewhere with a more local vibe, such as Weech’s Bimini Dock & Apartments.
With sunny days, breezy nights, and a low tax burden, South Florida has become the next hot spot for North and South Americans looking to move to a new home or buy a second one. In a roundup of the best properties going up in South Florida, Argentinian magazine Bienes Raíces highlighted Una Residences, the forthcoming collection of Brickell condos from OKO Group. Designed by Luis Revuelta along with skyscraper visionaries Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill, Una Residences will cut an impressive ship-like silhouette along the shore of Biscayne Bay while housing 47 floors of luxury condos with sleek interiors and impressive views of the Bay and Downtown Miami.
This summer, south Floridians are staying closer to home, enjoying the unbeatable breezes while making their own tasty treats. Residents of the forthcoming Brickell condos at Una Residences will find themselves fully equipped to make all sorts of cool desserts in their state-of-the-art kitchens. Keep reading for the Una Residences Guide to creating tasty and healthy summer desserts (courtesy of “Forks Over Knives”) at home!
The classic ice pop is an easy and quick place to start, and, thankfully, these delicious desserts can be made using natural and healthy ingredients. One of our favorite concoctions is the Orange-Plum-Rosemary Ice Pop, which combines the taste of fresh fruit with a hint of herb to create a unique and all-natural ice alternative. Even better, these pops burst with color and texture, making them a hit on Instagram.
Not everything on our list is fruit-based. People with a real sweet tooth should try their hand at making this Peanut Butter-Chocolate Marble Pudding. Sweetened with date paste instead of traditional sugar, this pudding puts everyone’s favorite flavor combination front and center while keeping calories and sugar to a minimum. It’s a bit like eating a cold Reese’s Cup on a hot summer day, and there’s no better place to enjoy it than a private balcony overlooking placid Biscayne Bay (like the ones that will soon be at Una Residences). Chefs who appreciate this pudding should also try their hands at Nice Cream, a sugar- and dairy-free ice cream substitute that allows home cooks to create their own fruit-based icy treats.
The most unusual item on our list is also the most versatile. The cool Cantaloupe-Cucumber Soup is a sweet dessert dish that can double as a midday treat or an amuse-bouche between larger dishes. Be warned: making this simple dish only takes 10 minutes of prep but might kick off a lifelong interest in the world of molecular gastronomy.
The kitchens at the forthcoming homes at Una Residences will be the perfect laboratories for adventurous chefs. These custom kitchens are being designed by Italian design company ITALKRAFT and will feature a suite of top-of-the-line appliances set into bespoke cabinetry, all dialed in for aesthetic perfection as well as ease of use. Elegant kitchen islands present ample counter space in the form of vast slabs of marble, while open-plan design and floor-to-ceiling windows preserve the indoor/outdoor lifestyle that makes living in South Florida such a dream.
Staying active is essential for maintaining optimal health — both physical and mental. Fortunately, you don’t have to leave the comfort of home to get the benefits of exercise. Residents of the Brickell condos for sale at Una Residences can get in a serious workout with the added luxury of spectacular bayfront views from private 10-foot-deep terraces and spacious living rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows. To bring this home fitness experience to perfection, online classes are now available from some of Miami’s top fitness boutiques, including Ahana Yoga, Orange Theory Fitness, and Society Fitness.
Ahana Yoga is one of Miami’s most beloved yoga studios, with a loyal clientele and talented instructors versed in a range of yoga styles. The studio is offering a convenient online portal, Now | Ahana Yoga, which offers access to an extensive, continuously updated collection of yoga classes. Roll out your mat and look out over Biscayne Bay while learning the basics of yoga in a series of introductory videos. Or, deepen your existing practice in a range of styles — including ashtanga, Ahana Flow, and many more.
Orange Theory Fitness
The boutique studio Orange Theory Fitness is probably best known for the transformative results of its exercise routines. Their signature workout integrates heart rate monitors to track performance during a series of fast-paced cardio and strength training exercises. A collection of online workout videos is now available as part of the Orange Theory at Home website. A new workout is available each day, targeting upper and lower body, core, or full body to provide focused workouts with plenty of variety.

As more Americans embrace the work-from-home lifestyle, many are seeing their residences in a new light. Turning a spare bedroom into an office is easy. But finding ways to maintain a healthy work/life balance without leaving your Brickell condo is much more difficult. That’s why the Una Residences team has put together this guide to meditating at home. All it takes is a tranquil space and your laptop, tablet, or phone.
The ancient practice of meditation is easy to learn, but it can take a lifetime to master. Though it is believed that people have been meditating for about 7,000 years, it wasn’t until the 1960s that the practice got any serious attention from the medical community, which quickly determined that the combination of calm sitting and rhythmic breathing was beneficial for both body and mind. On a grand scale, the goal of meditation is to cultivate mindfulness, the state of moving through the world fully conscious of one’s surroundings, but benefits such as a lower heart rate and better sleep can be achieved with simple daily practice.
The first thing the home yogi must do is find a quiet space. At the forthcoming Miami waterfront condos at Una Residences, the perfect meditation perches will be available to residents in the form of private balconies overlooking Biscayne Bay, but any quiet, calm place will do. Next, neophytes will need some kind of guide. The Calm app features guided meditation sessions as well as a host of other resources related to relaxation and sleep. Calm also gives users access to a collection of instructional videos and lectures hosted by leading mindfulness experts that will help guide them on their journey of self-discovery.
Another excellent choice is Brightmind, an app designed to develop the key mindfulness skills of concentration, clarity, and equanimity. A series of free instruction sessions teaches the basics of meditation. And Brightmind subscribers can practice a variety of meditation techniques with renowned teachers from around the world, representing hundreds of years of accumulated mindfulness practice.
Whether it’s a journey toward inner peace or just a few minutes away from your desk for some calming breathing exercises, home meditation practice can be a daily oasis where residents can relax, refresh, and rejuvenate. So, download one of these meditation apps, and then head to the Una Residences website and schedule a virtual appointment or private tour to secure your idyllic waterfront meditation retreat today.
As OKO Group’s Una Residences enters the construction phase, buyers who want to work with the design team to craft their perfect residence are already buying multiple adjacent homes, taking advantage of a narrow window of opportunity while the soon-to-be-iconic waterfront tower is still in its earliest phases. Designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill, known for their superlative skyscrapers around the world, Una Residences was inspired by the classic wooden watercraft of yesteryear, combining a tapering silhouette (reminiscent of a ship’s prow) with open-plan Brickell condos that open onto panoramic views of Biscayne Bay.
As the summer sun warms Miami’s sandy beaches, business is returning to previous routines. Case in point: Agents are opening the Una Residences sales gallery in Brickell, giving them greater access to the tools they need to guide prospective buyers through virtual tours and remote appointments. With the building currently in the early phases of construction, the sales team is using the gallery to reinforce their digital strategy and ensure that clients have as much information about this unique building as possible.
When complete, Una Residences will feature 135 waterfront condos as well as a suite of luxury amenities, all housed in a soon-to-be-iconic building designed by the renowned firm of Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. The building itself will strike a distinctive figure on the shores of Biscayne Bay, complete with a silhouette that dramatically curves up and out like the prow of a ship. Inside, this watercraft aesthetic will continue in the use of polished woods and metals inspired by the Riva line of yachts.
The floor-to-ceiling windows found throughout Una Residences will facilitate Miami’s famous indoor/outdoor lifestyle, keeping residents in touch with the natural world even when they are ensconced in the comfort of their own homes. Large sliding doors leading to private balconies will enhance this connection between indoor and outdoor spaces, inviting Miami’s famous breezes and sunshine into cozy interior spaces without sacrificing the sense of intimacy.
Una Residences will take full advantage of its prime waterfront location by including a private marina, where residents can store their own watercraft — just a few feet from their front door. Elsewhere on the property, residents will enjoy a variety of pools and landscaped outdoor spaces as well as expansive indoor recreation and wellness amenities, including a fitness center with floor-to-ceiling views of the bay, a dedicated indoor playroom, and a private spa.
Until Una Residences stands tall, the best way to get a feeling for this spectacular building is to have one of our sales representatives take you through its virtual halls. Prospective residents should reach out to the sales team and schedule a virtual tour of these forthcoming luxury Brickell condos, as well as an information session where the professional sales staff can answer any questions they may have.
More than just the summer sun is shining on the Miami real estate market. Famous for its pristine beaches and sublime climate, the South Florida city has become a cultural and financial hub over the last decade, with transportation and cruise traffic driving massive investment in local infrastructure. With these factors coming together at a time of relative uncertainty elsewhere, residential real estate in Miami has become a great investment opportunity above and beyond the simple pleasures of living in this booming tropical city.
By building value in multiple areas at once, Miami has quickly become the second most important city in North America in terms of economic and cultural capital; measured worldwide, it ranks as the sixth most important. The Magic City’s favorable tax code certainly contributes, with low sales, personal, and corporate tax rates attracting everyone from tech startups along Florida’s newly christened “Silicon Beach” to international banks around the city’s financial hub in the Brickell neighborhood. And the density of world-class dining and housing around the city center helps attract people to the area — and encourages them to stay.
Beyond economic growth, Miami’s embrace of the fine arts has turned it into an international destination for the world’s cultured elite. While local institutions like Maurice A. Ferré Park (formerly Museum Park) and the New World Symphony concert hall keep residents entertained throughout the year, the annual international art festival Art Basel really put Miami on the aesthetic map; last year, 4,000 artists from 32 countries showed their work at the festival, and 80,000 art lovers attended.
All of these factors have helped the city attract elevated developments like Una Residences. The OKO Group-developed building broke ground earlier this year on the shores of Biscayne Bay in the city’s Brickell neighborhood. The luxury Brickell condos represent a rare investment opportunity thanks to a narrow construction pipeline for luxury residential projects at the moment. Fronted by a private marina, Una Residences will stand 47 stories tall and feature 135 Miami waterfront condos designed by internationally renowned architectural firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, who are known for their strikingly artistic facades. The building’s soon-to-be-iconic silhouette was inspired by the prow of a classic watercraft, tapering as it sinks toward the ground to create an eye-catching outline on the waterfront.
Una Residences is the crown jewel of OKO Group’s portfolio of forthcoming residential and commercial buildings in Miami, which represents just a small portion of the investment pouring into the city. So, reach out to our sales team today to schedule a virtual appointment and secure your piece of the Magic City’s future.
Una Residences has broken ground, making it the first major condo project to start construction so far this year. This collection of Brickell condos for sale sits on an exceptionally rare slice of bayfront property that sets the stage for the nautically inspired building, which will come with a private marina and interiors clad in wood tones familiar to lovers of the iconic Riva yacht. When complete in 2023, Una Residences will stand tall over surrounding buildings and provide residents with unbeatable Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami views. Developer OKO Group tapped internationally renowned architects Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill to bring the property to life, with Fortune International Group handling sales.
The comfortable, expansive Brickell condos at Una Residences are the ideal studio space for online dance classes. Whether you’re dancing for exercise, for fun, or both, there is an incredible variety of choices available, ranging in styles from street to classical. For an upbeat, innovative experience, be sure to check out WollenDance. New York City Ballet principal dancer Tiler Peck’s Instagram page regularly livestreams ballet classes, while Steezy offers detailed video lessons to get you stepping. With these easily accessible classes and the open airiness of the Brickell waterfront condos at Una Residences, there’s ample reason and motivation to get started.
WollenDance will make you love dance as much as they do. Their community presents more than 30 live online dance/fitness classes each week, taught by inspiring instructors and streamed from studios throughout the county. Those looking for even more flexibility and variety can explore their always-expanding library of over 400 prerecorded classes. Simply head to their website, select a membership plan, and start dancing. As a testament to how user-friendly WollenDance is, they’ve even posted a short tutorial on how to cast an iOS or Android device to a smart TV to enlarge the experience and envelop audiences with a truly immersive experience. Latin fusion, hip hop, burlesque, and so much more await. Get online and get dancing today.
While the stage lights have all temporarily gone dark, many performers are still finding new and innovative ways to bring their art to the world and help audiences everywhere learn a thing or two along the way. Tiler Peck, New York City Ballet principal dancer, teaches daily ballet classes on Instagram Live from her family’s home in California. What started as an advanced dance class on Zoom for the high school where Peck’s mom teaches quickly morphed into something much bigger when Peck invited her Instagram following to join her on Live. Shortly after, #turnoutwithtiler ballet classes were born. Join her Monday through Saturday at 1 p.m. EST on Instagram Live @tilerpeck as she steps up to the barre.
Eventually, dance clubs will reopen. Until then, brush up on your moves — or finally learn how to perform them — with Steezy. Choose from urban dance, popping, house, dancehall, hip hop, and many others, and then use their custom video controls to perfect each step. These controls allow users to switch their viewing angle, view specific sections of a routine, speed up or slow down a section, loop sections, and even watch themselves, creating more efficient practice sessions and improving the learning process. Enjoy unlimited access to more than 600 different classes (with new ones being added each week) and do so with either a monthly or yearly membership.
Dancing is good for the mind, body, and spirit, and online offerings bring opportunities to learn right into the home. The Miami waterfront condos at Una Residences are the perfect space to let loose and dance like no one is watching.

Miami has long been a melting pot where people from around the world come together to exchange food and art while basking in the warm sun and enjoying the cool breezes blowing off Biscayne Bay. About a quarter of immigrants to the Miami area come from Latin American countries, including Cuba and Colombia, with a growing contingent hailing from Brazil. The team behind the forthcoming collection of Brickell condos at Una Residences has put together a list of digital tools that will help future residents brush up on their Portuguese and Spanish, familiarize themselves with some historic landmarks, and keep abreast of Latin American news and culture, all with an eye toward making future visits to the Southern Hemisphere that much richer.
One of the easiest ways to tap into Latin American culture is by snagging a subscription to Forbes Brasil, the finance magazine’s Brazilian edition. From breaking news to market analysis to columns covering a range of cultural and sports topics, Forbes Brasil brings a high level of reporting to every story, ensuring that readers are informed about the whats and the whys. Those who prefer a digital copy of the magazine should head to their app store of choice and download the Forbes Brasil app, which delivers all of the magazine’s content right to their smartphone or tablet.
Future Una Residences dwellers with a penchant for apps will love Memrise, the subscription language-learning service that connects native speakers with learners around the world. Memrise services range from simple daily vocabulary exercises to full-blown live classes, all of which are designed according to their linguistic philosophy, or, as they put it, “Memrise’s courses have one thing that textbooks don’t: real-life language.” After all, there’s no better way to learn a new language than by conversing with a native speaker!
While traveling to Latin America to put their Spanish or Portuguese to the test may have to wait a little while, future Una residents can take virtual tours of Latin American landmarks without leaving the comfort of their living room, thanks to sites like the ones included in this list from Wanderlust. With a tap of the finger, eager virtual travelers can stand atop Corcovado Mountain at the feet of Christ the Redeemer and look out at the streets of Rio de Janeiro spread out at their digital feet, stroll around the breathtaking Inca citadel nestled in the clouds at Machu Picchu, and visit the rainforest canopies of Panama for a glimpse of a rare tropical bird, all without leaving their Miami home.
With the world at a temporary standstill, now is the perfect time to broaden horizons and make “remote” connections with people and locations around the world. It’s also the time to commit to the multicultural splendor and vibrant community of Miami by starting a new life at Una Residences, so schedule a virtual presentation and start your life on the shores of Biscayne Bay today!
Construction is officially underway at Una Residences, the forthcoming collection of Brickell condos from OKO Group and Cain International, with Fortune International Group handling marketing and sales. Demolition of the existing structure was finished on April 25, and construction on the new structure began immediately. World-renowned architects Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill are designing the building, which is perched on a rare stretch of Brickell Waterfront property in the private neighborhood with easy access to nearby Key Biscayne, Coconut Grove, Brickell, and Downtown Miami. When complete, the tower will rise 47 stories and feature unobstructed views of the Bay and the city while only being a 15 minute drive from the airport.
“Una Residences is the last opportunity to buy a waterfront property with sweeping views over Biscayne Bay,” said Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of OKO Group. “Una represents a truly sophisticated combination of location and design in quiet, residential Brickell Waterfront.”
These 135 luxury homes will range in size from two- to five-bedrooms, with a pair of penthouses occupying the top floors. Each home features a spacious layout that combines indoor and outdoor space to take full advantage of the building’s waterfront location. Una features a suite of amenities that extend this dedication to the indoor-outdoor lifestyle. From the private marina where residents can keep their favorite watercraft to multiple pools and the expansive private spa, Una Residences is designed to provide everything that one needs to live the Miami life to the fullest. Thanks to a partnership with Una, residents will also be able to enjoy off-site amenities at the nearby Grand Bay Club via exclusive membership access, allowing them onto the best stretch of beach in all of Key Biscayne.
“Una was created with the concept of meaningful living in mind,” said Edgardo Defortuna, President and CEO of Fortune International Group. “We are excited to move forward with this one-of-a-kind project.”
Miami’s pantheon of Latin American art galleries and museums may be shut right now, but you can visit others from the comfort of your living room in the Brickell waterfront condos. Take this opportunity to explore fascinating cultural institutions further afield, and discover gems that you might wish to see, up close and in person, the next time a vacation is on the cards.
Museo Frida Kahlo, Mexico City
The “Blue House” in the Coyoacán neighborhood of Mexico City is also known as Frida Kahlo’s “private universe.” It was in this relatively humble abode that the artist was born, died, and created some of her bold and passionate works. As you “walk” through Kahlo’s vibrant home, you can browse family photos, admire a collection of Kahlo’s Tehuana dresses, and visit the studio where she worked — still assembled, complete with easel and brushes. Kahlo’s last-ever painting, “Viva la Vida,” can be appreciated in high-resolution splendor; the brilliant red flesh of the cut watermelons in the piece reflects the artist’s passion for life. Also on display are works by Kahlo’s husband, Diego Rivera, including the rolling hills of his 1911 piece “Landscape,” and his surreal still life “The Alarm Clock.” As with all of these virtual visits, there is the added bonus of having the whole place to yourself!
Museo Del Prado, Madrid
Escape to Madrid without leaving your downtown condo, courtesy of Museo Del Prado’s online treasure trove. Get intimately familiar with masterpieces such the enchanting “Jacob’s Dream” by Jusepe de Ribera; Diego Velázquez’s striking oil painting of the crucifix-clutching nun, Jerónima de la Fuente; and Francisco Goya’s cartoon tapestry, “Dogs on a Leash.” Not only can you admire artworks in incredible detail thanks to a move and zoom option, there are added multimedia features, such as behind-the-scenes restoration footage of some of the museum’s prize possessions. You also have the opportunity to remotely explore the museum’s temporary exhibition, “The Other Treasure”: The Dauphin’s Cases, courtesy of annotated high-resolution photographs and video.
Museo Nacional de Antropología, Mexico City
Stroll through beautiful, and often surprising, fragments of ancient Latin American history, with the Museo Nacional de Antropología’s virtual tour. The grand Mexica hall, the location of a spectacular collection of Aztec art, is fully explorable — and inundated with fascinating artifacts. As you make your way around, look for the skillfully carved, centuries-old Coatlicue de Cozcatlán (a skull-faced celestial deity); serpent-shaped gods; Mesoamerican gold jewelry, which miraculously escaped the mass-melting undertaken by Spanish conquerors; and a prized polished obsidian monkey. You might end up getting so lost in this collection, you’ll forget you’re in Miami! Una Residences is currently offering virtual presentations, reach out to our sales team today to schedule an appointment and start your life on the shores of Biscayne Bay today!
When OKO Group chose Miami’s Brickell neighborhood for the forthcoming collection of luxury Miami waterfront condos dubbed “Una Residences,” they set their sights on international clientele with a penchant for spending their winters in the Florida sunshine. Now, with the COVID-19 outbreak throwing markets into temporary confusion, marketing chief Edgardo Defortuna told South Florida Business Journal that he sees this very plan as the thing that will keep property values high. “The appreciation is going to happen,” said Defortuna, who is the CEO of Fortune International Group. “If travel restrictions are lifted, having a second home in the U.S. will be a very important asset.”
In recent months, house hunters have been looking at prospective homes with a new thought in mind: “Could I work here?” Since working from home has recently become a reality for many of us, luxury buildings like Una Residences have gained a surprising new amenity without changing a single design element. These Brickell condos, which are being designed to meet all the needs of their future residents, feature everything necessary to work productively and stylishly without leaving home. So, grab your laptop and check out all the great ways that Una Residences will make working from home easy and enjoyable!
The spacious homes at Una Residences perfectly blend high-end materials with the famous Miami sunshine to create interiors that are comfortable and airy — ideal for keeping the mind clear during a day’s work. Walls of floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the clear waters of Biscayne Bay flood these homes with natural light, reducing the need for artificial light during the day and providing breathtaking vistas that are as inspiring as they are beautiful. Residents who like a little fresh air to keep them alert will love setting up on one of their home’s private balconies, which feature glass railings to maximize the bay view beyond.
For residents who prefer to step outside of their homes occasionally to keep a healthy work/life balance, the suite of amenities at Una Residences features a variety of spaces that make for great temporary offices. The amenities deck on the third floor houses multiple swimming pools and plentiful poolside seating — great for those who like to work in the sun. When residents need a break from the outdoors, they can head indoors to the Owners’ Lounge, which is outfitted with a variety of high-end seating options. Don’t forget about the private movie theater and dining area that can be reserved for private presentations, demonstrations, and screenings.
Then, at the end of the day, residents can close their laptop, sign out of email, and head to one of Una’s private treatment rooms for a massage or pilates class before heading to the marina to take their boat for a sunset cruise. Una Residences creates a holistic living experience unlike any other in the Miami area, so don’t wait! Una Residences is currently offering virtual appointments, reach out to our sales team today to schedule an appointment and start your life on the shores of Biscayne Bay today!
The extra-wide terraces extending out from every one of the Brickell condos at Una Residences do more than just guarantee private outdoor space to every resident. Like the spacious resort-caliber amenities that define life at Una Residences, the terraces are places for residents to spend hours simply luxuriating. They provide an opportunity to feel a cooling breeze on one’s face while observing the blue waters of Biscayne Bay and the strip of sandy beach that lies before it — all without leaving home. In short, the terraces are a place where residents can feel totally secure and relaxed. The lifestyle at Una invites recreation and rejuvenation, and represents a philosophy that extends beyond simple physical pleasure.
In the age of the internet, residents are encouraged to take advantage of these quiet, reflective spaces to explore topics that they may have given short shrift their first time through school. And that’s where Class Central comes in. This online resource aggregates massive open online courses from top universities in one place, making enrolling in a history class at Harvard or taking a Princeton architecture course as easy as clicking a mouse. Most of the classes are self-paced and require two to five hours of work each week, making them small investments in time and even smaller investments in money — the vast majority of the courses are free of charge. (Most of the classes have the option of paying a fee to gain credits.)
The intellectual rewards are vast. Are you a Civil War buff? Even casual students of this momentous period of American history will want to check out Ivy League classes like Columbia history professor Eric Foner’s “The Civil War and Reconstruction – 1865-1890: The Unfinished Revolution.” The class familiarizes participants with one of the most vital yet understudied eras of our nation’s past and asks important questions about civilian authority, economic freedom, and the politics of race. Residents with an interest in medical knowledge will love Connie Scanga’s University of Pennsylvania course “Vital Signs: Understanding What the Body Is Telling Us,” one of Class Central’s all-time most popular classes. In this course, students learn what our bodies are trying to communicate when our heart rate spikes or our temperature drops.
Whether they’re learning about Ancient Greek philosophy or brushing up on their French, residents at Una will have plenty of quiet and comfortable places to settle in with a laptop or a stack of flashcards. From the daybeds beside the outdoor lap-pool to the elegant private residents lounge, Una Residences is replete with amenities designed to facilitate comfort.
For the time being, Una Residences is offering virtual appointments, so reach out to our sales team today to schedule an appointment and start your Brickell journey today!
As the economic disruption from COVID-19 settles in, The Real Deal is reporting that developers in South Florida aren’t letting the uncertainty slow down business. For example, the team behind Una Residences in Brickell has set up a full online shopping experience for prospective homeowners, complete with virtual tours of the sales gallery, amenities, and floor plans. This way, customers from as far away as Europe are making real estate purchases without compromising anyone’s safety in this vulnerable time. When complete, these Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill-designed Brickell condos will cut an imposing silhouette on the shore of Biscayne Bay, complete with sleek interiors, panoramic waterfront views, and a private marina just outside the door.
Vladislav Doronin sat down with Mansion Global to talk Miami real estate and the future of his companies, OKO Group and Aman. Two of his forthcoming Miami projects, Una Residences and Missoni Baia, occupy rare waterfront lots in the city. Along with their striking architecture, their locations make these Brickell homes great investments as well as fantastic places to live. “The market will always have its fluctuations,” said Doronin, “but long-term the lack of new inventory that can be built along the water will create lots of additional value for these homes.” With design by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill and an unbeatable waterfront location that will include a private marina, Una Residences will become the finest condos in the hip Brickell neighborhood when they are complete in 2022.
Una Residences got top billing in a recent piece about luxury homes in Miami. The 47-story waterfront building will cut an imposing silhouette at the very end of Brickell, channeling the sleek lines of the Riva yacht that inspired both its shape and the teak, walnut, and natural stone finishes found within. Developed by mogul Vladislav Doronin and designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill, Una Residences will be home to 135 Brickell condos, a private marina with slips for rent, and a suite of amenities inspired by Aman, the current (resort and hotel) jewel in Doronin’s real estate crown.
Given all the benefits and pleasures of taking a brisk walk, a list of the best beach-walking trails near the Brickell condos of Una Residences is a must. Enjoy an early morning stroll to see wildlife, a midday hike for exercise, or an evening walk to watch the majestic sunsets only Miami can offer. Explore the waterfront on foot in some of the area’s most breathtaking green spaces — all near to the Una Residences downtown Miami condos.
With its expansive view of Biscayne Bay and Key Biscayne, Alice C. Wainwright Park provides a modestly secluded location for outdoor enjoyment and exploration. Take in all 17 acres of its unique terrain, including an exposed limestone outcrop of the Miami Rock Ridge. Incredibly picturesque and a little wild, Alice C. Wainwright Park provides a glimpse into the natural world of Miami’s past. Spend an afternoon traipsing through this unique environment, and be sure to make some time for a picnic on the beautiful greens you’ll find near the pavilion areas.
Most of Miami knows Bayfront Park for the Bayfront Park Amphitheater and Tina Hills Pavilion. Together, these two venues have attracted big names for concerts and other events, and offer state-of-the art sound and lighting, VIP boxes, and much more. However, the park’s 32 acres also provide a scenic vista of Biscayne Bay that knows few rivals. Throughout the year, Bayfront Park also offers a number of free festivals and holiday events, such as tree lightings and the Fourth of July celebrations. Enjoy spirited celebration and then take a sunset walk along the park’s waterfront.
For a more adventurous outing, cross the water to Dinner Key Picnic Islands Park. This area was created in 1920 when the bay was dredged to allow for better access by seaplanes. A primitive island that’s easily accessible only by watercraft, Dinner Key Picnic Islands Park provides a wonderful shoreline to explore in relative privacy. Pick your favorite form of watercraft, and remember that getting to the island is simply part of the fun.
The beauty of Biscayne Bay is right at the doorstep of the Brickell waterfront condos at Una Residences. Walk, hike, or run the shoreline of some of Miami’s most beautiful parks. Along the way, learn about Miami’s past, revel in the excitement of an event, or just enjoy the serenity of the natural wonders that surround. Why wait? Book a virtual tour today.
Living on Miami’s waterfront comes with a rich selection of seafood restaurants as standard. But there are plenty of other world-class options to choose from, including some of the juiciest steaks and chicken in the area, and some of the freshest vegetarian and vegan cuisine, too. In fact, you can explore the globe with your taste buds — sampling dishes from the Mediterranean to South America — at a range of restaurants close to the Brickell condos for sale at Una Residences.
La Petite Maison | 1300 Brickell Bay Drive
Belle Époque and the French Riviera set the scene for this high-end French restaurant. There’s a lovely covered terrace, which could almost be in Cannes, while the restaurant’s interior stars a reproduction of a 19th century bronze sculpture by Antonin Mercié, called “Gloria Victis.” The proof, of course, is in the pudding (as well as the starters and main courses). La Petite Maison pulls these off with aplomb, from the pissaladière, a savory onion tart with anchovies; through to the ratatouille with feta; and tarte fine, an apple tart with vanilla ice cream. Bon appétit!
PM Fish & Steakhouse | 1453 South Miami Avenue
This South American eatery offers an exceptional selection of seafood dishes, but there are many more strings to its culinary bow. Come for lunch to enjoy the homemade ham and cheese empanadas or the prime skirt steak with grilled vegetables. The handmade pastas are excellent, too, as is the beef bouillon and onion soup. Finish things off with the alfajor, a puff pastry dessert layered with caramel, studded with pecans, and topped off with powdered sugar.
Fi'lia | 1300 South Miami Avenue #100
The Caesar salad is a calling card of this homey Brickell Italian restaurant — think crisp gem lettuce festooned with anchovies and homemade garlic croutons, topped liberally with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and served from a roaming cart. That might sound overly decadent, but Fi'lia is all about simple, well-made traditional food. Other standouts include a gooey chicken parm, and wood-grilled chicken with a side of crispy rosemary potatoes. From your opening Venetian Spritz to your parting olive oil cake with basil and almond cream, Fi'lia is the kind of place you’ll be telling your friends and family all about.
Explore the area’s top-flight international restaurants and discover your new favorite dish. And make a point of recreating it in the kitchen of your downtown Miami condo at Una Residences, so book your private viewing today!
With a silhouette that resembles the prow of a ship breaking through the blue waters of Biscayne Bay, Una Residences is already making waves across the Miami luxury residential scene. Developed by OKO Group and designed by world-renowned architects Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill, Una is bringing a collection of nautically inspired homes to the Brickell neighborhood, along with a private marina and a suite of luxury amenities to rival any resort. AS + GG Architecture took inspiration from the iconic wooden Riva yacht when designing the interior, cladding these Brickell, Miami, condos in polished wood, gleaming metal, and sumptuous leather to create the sensation of living inside one of the world’s most famous (and stylish) watercrafts.
When complete, UNA Residences will cut a decidedly maritime silhouette on the shores of Biscayne Bay, its prow-shaped facade inviting residents into a polished wood and chrome interior inspired by the iconic wooden yachts of yore. Residents will even have the option of storing their personal watercraft right outside their front door in the building’s private marina. But, while developer OKO Group and architects Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill have created the perfect expression of Miami’s water-loving lifestyle, UNA residents will love the host of nearby land-based activities, as well.
Located less than seven miles from UNA, the Granada Golf Course at Coral Gables is a world-class nine-hole course that combines local flavor with a private club atmosphere that makes it a truly special place to tee off. Opened in 1923, Granada is Florida’s oldest nine-hole course still in operation. And at the end of this challenging par-36 course is Burger Bob’s, the fabled “10th hole” greasy spoon diner where golfers can refuel while reliving their accomplishments (or mulligans).
Residents who prefer a bit of indoor recreation will love nearby Splitsville, where everyone from pros to amateurs can enjoy an evening of bowling, along with signature cocktails, classic bar bites, and an outdoor patio for the part of the night when guests swap their bowling kicks for dancing shoes.

For days when sports aren’t on the agenda, residents of the Brickell condos at UNA are just a short trip away from the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. This opulent villa once belonged to industrialist James Deering, who built himself a European estate in miniature, complete with Italian Renaissance gardens and a host of historically inspired outbuildings. (If you look closely, you’ll see some filming locations from Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”!) The Vizcaya is now open to the public and features daily tours of the villa as well as a calendar of events, including everything from festive celebrations to environmental education sessions — all of which take place in the spectacular Italian setting.
From surf to turf, residents of UNA will have the best of both worlds at their feet. So, head over to the UNA Residences website and reserve your Miami waterfront condo today!
Penta caught up with developer and hotelier Vladislav Doronin to talk about the future of Miami. “Miami has transformed into a global hub in the last few years,” said Doronin, later adding that “the city and the beach both offer great quality of life with the warm weather and a healthy outdoor lifestyle.” Doronin, who is a Miami resident, is developing a number of properties in the city, including Una Residences, a collection of Brickell condos for sale, with design by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill. Una residents will enjoy Biscayne Bay views, spacious interiors clad in sleek wood and polished metal, and a private marina where they can store their watercraft right outside their front door.
Modern Luxury Miami highlighted Una Residences as one of the most exciting buildings going up around Miami and included the impressive renderings to prove it. With a design by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill that was inspired by the iconic Riva yacht, an unbeatable Biscayne Bay-side location complete with a private marina, and spectacular residences finished with teak, walnut, and natural stone, this collection of Brickell waterfront condos is poised to elevate Miami living to new heights. The 47-story tower will channel the serene atmosphere found at developer Vladislav Doronin’s Aman, thanks to a suite of luxury amenities designed to bring the resort lifestyle home.
With the start of the new year, resolve to make health and wellness an everyday part of your routine. The amenities at Una Residences provide an opportunity to do so with ease. You have access to a refined fitness center, an outdoor lap pool, and studios for both yoga and personal training. These downtown Miami condos bring you a convenient way to exercise and focus your energies on what matters most: your health and wellness.
Fitness begins with a regular workout regimen, and the Brickell condos at Una Residences provide the perfect place to sculpt the perfect you. State-of-the-art equipment fills the fitness center at Una Residences — no more waiting for someone to finish using a machine at a crowded public gym. Spin or row your way through an enjoyable session of cardio, or use free weights to increase your strength or tone specific muscle groups. Best of all, the design of the fitness center creates a feeling of expansiveness, and wall-to-wall windows open the room to the bright, airy environment beyond. This is a welcoming space in which to break a sweat.
The personal training areas provide a different way to fulfill or even augment your fitness needs. Practice Pilates or your favorite aerobic routines here. Before or after your workout, stretch out and realign mind and body in the yoga studio. However you choose to approach your training, these spaces are available exclusively to residents and provide yet another avenue to achieving your fitness goals.
One of the benefits of Miami living is proximity to the water, but there isn’t always time to hit the beach for a swim. Thankfully, Una Residences has a full-size lap pool. Swimming has been shown to be the complete, all-body workout, offering both cardio and strength benefits. What’s more, it’s great fun and offers a refreshing way to work out, even on the hottest of summer days.
But fitness isn’t just about high-impact workout routines. You have to consider recovery and relaxation, as well.
For pre- and post-workout muscle and skin health, consider the steam room or sauna. Saunas have been shown to aid in recovery after intense physical activity, help improve cardiovascular performance, and flush toxins from the body. They can also be a wonderfully soothing way to relieve stress. And if you don’t like dry heat, then try steam, which can improve circulation, loosen up stiff joints, and even relieve those stuffy sinuses.
For rejuvenation of your spirit, retreat to the third-floor terrace for a bit of R & R. The heart of social activity at Una Residences, the terrace faces Biscayne Bay and is surrounded by trees and lush foliage. There, you’ll also find the bayfront pool, a family pool, and a children’s play area. Splash and play or seclude yourself in the shade of the palms; sunbathe or just gaze out at the bay beyond. As evening rolls in, make dinner at the grilling area, or enjoy a drink at one of the outdoor bars. However you best enjoy “chilling,” this is the place to do it.
Find more time for health and wellness this year by taking full advantage of the array of amenities at Una Residences. Work out, relax with a book, or strike your best mountain pose. The choice is yours. And it’s all right here at Una Residences, so book your private viewing today!
One of the major perks of life at Una Residences is that you can invite your friends and family around for a fun and relaxing day whenever the mood strikes. With a state-of-the-art fitness center, five (that’s right, five) pools, and a dedicated indoor playroom for children, the luxury amenities at Una offer numerous options that everyone can enjoy.
Set in a prime waterfront location on Biscayne Bay, the Miami Brickell condos of Una Residences are designed with an aquatic sensibility in mind. Opening to spectacular views of the bay and beyond, Una is an invitation to get in touch with the water that so dramatically defines the area. The building’s outdoor amenities level encompasses the entire third-floor terrace, and because it’s landscaped with plenty of shade trees and foliage that overlook the water, it’s nearly indistinguishable from the natural environs beyond. You’ll find the bayfront pool, a lap pool, a family pool, a children’s play area, and more. Relax in a cabana, prepare a steak dinner at one of the outdoor grilling stations, or grab a drink at the outdoor bar. Better yet, refresh yourself with a cooling dip in one of the pools. When the sun sets, find your way back here to gaze up at the stars. This is the essence of life at Una.
Those with boats or other types of watercraft can dock their vessels at Una’s private marina. Launch directly from your own backyard and explore Biscayne Bay or the Atlantic Ocean. Plan for a relaxing day with your whole gang out on the water, or set sail for an early-morning fishing excursion. The convenience of this landing cannot be overstated.
Health and wellness routines are made more enjoyable when practiced with a companion. Una’s fitness center offers the latest in gym and training equipment — set in a light and airy space. Wall-to-wall windows open the center to the bay, while studios provide dedicated rooms for yoga and personal training to those who want to “step-it-up” a notch.
Of course, with family and close friends, it’s sometimes best just to get together and chill. Find a spot in one of the many outdoor lounge areas and relax in the shade of designer Enzo Enea’s masterful landscaping. Or gather a cadre of film lovers and screen a new flick at the movie theater. With luxurious seating and state-of-the-art sound and projection, this space will quickly become every resident’s go-to when it’s time to watch their favorite flicks. Complete your screening party in Una’s catering kitchen, where either you or your favorite chef can use the best in new appliances to whip up something special for your guests.
Finally, if your group is looking for a night out — while still feeling very much at home — don’t forget that Una residents are granted exclusive access to a premium offsite amenity at Grand Bay Club. Located in nearby Key Biscayne, this beachfront oasis and private club offers excellent dining options, its own slate of luxury amenities, and beach services. With poolside waitstaff, a children’s playground, and party planning services, Grand Bay Club offers another way for you to gather your closest kin and kindred spirits for an unforgettable day or evening.

Contact the Una Residences team to schedule your private presentation today!
Our Interim Sales Gallery is located at 717 N.E. 27 St Miami, FL 33137

Dubbed Una Residences, this forthcoming tower is being designed by architect Luis Revuelta along with Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, who took inspiration from the lines and materials used in the iconic Riva yacht when envisioning the residential and common areas. The 47-story tower will feature a tapering silhouette reminiscent of a ship’s prow cutting through the surf, and residents will have panoramic Biscayne Bay views as well as access to their own private marina, complete with slips for rent.
The Next Miami is reporting that Civic Construction has applied for a permit to begin construction on the foundation at Una Residences, marking an important milestone for this collection of luxury Brickell condos. Designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, Una Residences will stand 613 feet tall and feature a soaring silhouette that bows like the prow of a yacht as it cuts through the surrounding skyline. Inside, the waterfront condos will be decked out in sumptuous leather, hardwood, and steel, all inspired by the lines and tones of the iconic Riva yacht. Perhaps best of all, residents will have the option of storing their own watercraft in a slip at Una’s private marina.
When complete, the flowing silhouette of the Una Residences will stand out on Miami’s coast, cutting through the skyline like the prow of the yachts that inspired its shape. Developed by OKO Group and designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the Una Residences’ forthcoming collection of Brickell condos was crafted with yachtsmen in mind. The tower, which curves as it rises to its total height of 47 stories, is structured to address climate and environmental concerns, giving residents peace of mind as well as panoramic Miami views. Spacious terraces will float above Biscayne Bay like ships’ decks, and residents can rent a slip in Una’s private marina to store their personal watercraft.

National Geographic says this Miami neighborhood is one of the friendliest in the country. Seriously
National Geographic crunched the numbers, and it turns out that Brickell, the gleaming Miami waterfront business and shopping district, is one of the country’s friendliest neighborhoods. According to the magazine, Brickell is “full of places to delve into, people to meet, and enough bonhomie to make you want to return again and again.” Fortunately, it isn’t only a great place to visit; Una Residences, the new collection of Brickell condos rising on the shore of Biscayne Bay, makes a strong argument for calling the neighborhood home. From the private marina to the spacious luxury condos with spectacular bayside views, Una Residences is poised to keep Brickell at top of mind for Floridians and visitors alike.
The Real Deal reports that condo sales in Miami are going strong, as shown by interest in forthcoming projects like Una Residences.

Modern Luxury Manhattan was on the ground at Fortune International Group’s Miami Luxury Real Estate & Design Open House, where guests enjoyed a pair of in-depth discussions about the booming Miami real estate scene. The first session focused on the tax benefits of moving one’s domicile to the Sunshine State, while the second featured a conversation about the ways that Miami’s unique lifestyle translates into interior design.

According to reporting by Miami Today, as the Miami condo market booms, Una Residences is setting itself apart from other luxury Brickell condos by tailoring its offerings to the needs of Brickell residents. These Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill-designed Brickell condos are located away from the main development areas in a waterfront pocket all their own, giving residents breathing room as well as quick access to a number of private schools. Thanks to their waterfront location, these homes also boast a private marina with slips for rent, saving residents time and travel when they want to take their watercraft out for an afternoon on Biscayne Bay.
Nothing says Miami waterfront living like walking from your luxury Brickell condo to your own boat waiting in a private slip. Luckily, Una Residences has you covered, with a collection of Miami Brickell condos for sale that have been designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture with interiors inspired by the lines and materials of the iconic Riva Yacht. In addition to the private marina complete with rentable slips, residents will have access to a suite of luxury amenities with the same unbeatable Biscayne Bay views as their homes. The 47-story Una Residences is being developed by OKO Group and is expected to be complete in 2021.
Nothing says Miami like taking the boat out for an afternoon on the waters of beautiful Biscayne Bay, and lucky residents at the forthcoming Una Residences will have easy access to their watercraft, thanks to the building’s private marina. This collection of 135 Brickell waterfront condos from OKO Group and Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture features a flowing facade and sleek interior inspired by the lines and materials of the iconic Riva yacht, giving residents the full luxury aquatic experience from the moment they wake up (to panoramic Biscayne Bay vistas) to their nightcap on their private terrace.
Excellence Magazine recently ran a feature on the wave of high-end residential projects washing over Miami in concert with recent investment in the city’s infrastructure, and the pair of projects from Vladislav Doronin’s OKO Group were the clear highlights. The second of these projects to be completed, Una Residences, is being designed by internationally renowned architect Adrian Smith and will feature landscaping by Enzo Enea. When complete, this collection of two- to five-bedroom Brickell condos will look out over the building’s private marina and onto the waters of Biscayne Bay as well as Downtown Miami. The building will also enjoy proximity to nearby neighborhoods Key Biscayne and Coconut Grove.
When shopping for a new luxury Miami condominium residence, Miami’s modern buyers weigh a range of factors, including the vibe of the neighborhood, architectural element, and, of course, the amenities suite. But perhaps one of the most vital features is often overlooked, quite literally, despite the essential role it plays in day-to-day experience: the view. And while virtually all high-rises offer an elevated vantage point, in order to elevate your lifestyle, your home’s view should inspire, invigorate, and amaze you, no matter the hour or season.
For breathtaking views, Una Residences has no peer. Its Brickell Waterfront condos feature panoramic vistas of city, sea, and sky – all from the same window. While Una Residences is in proximity to the Miami skyline, it remains distinct from it. This set-apart quality brings a two-fold benefit to residents. The most obvious asset of standing alone is that there are no nearby high-rises to obstruct your appreciation of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline, resulting in the ability to look, literally, as far as the eye can see. But perhaps the more significant gain for residents is subtler: a sense of privacy. Being simultaneously close to and somewhat apart from the glittering skyline is a unique position, one that brings a much-needed sense of solitude to urban living. It’s a big-picture detail that can’t be easily replicated.
And then, there are the little things. Una Residences’ Brickell condos are designed with a careful eye to the particulars. The sparkling sea is always beautiful, but it’s the interplay between the sea views and the design that truly brings it all to life. Floor-to-ceiling windows integrate the world outside with modern, refined interior design in unexpected ways. For example, the teak wood cabinetry, inspired by the refined yet rustic details of a yacht’s cabin, brings a sense of warmth and snugness to the interior that complements the expanses of glass, ocean, and light. The result is an alluring juxtaposition, a homey vantage point from which to enjoy both the urban cityscape and natural scenery in all their glory and wildness.
And, speaking of the natural world, we’d be remiss if we forgot the transformative power of Miami’s sunrises and sunsets. It’s no secret that Miami’s skies are full of drama and beauty, especially as the sun crosses the horizon. Miles of turquoise sea glow red and tangerine in the fading light of day, and storms passing in the distance flash on the horizon. Owning a unique sightline of this part of the world is more than a pleasant perk. It becomes a fundamental component of daily life; an ever-changing, one-of-a-kind piece of artwork that continually shifts the atmosphere of your rooms, sparking small epiphanies and pleasures. It becomes, after all, the background for the most personal of moments, the memories made in your home.

Last weekend, watercraft enthusiasts from around the country flocked to Miami for more than just the newest line of yachts.

A neighborhood gets its flavor from what it contains and what it gives you access to, opening a map of possibilities. Una’s unmatched location on the Brickell Waterfront offers the supreme combination of all the best of Miami—and then some. Living in these Miami waterfront condos situates you uniquely not only right on the water in one of the most desirable spots to live in Florida but in close proximity to every desirable dimension of Miami living, right at the intersection of Coral Gables to the West, Downtown Miami to the East, and Key Biscayne to the South.

Just a short drive across the Rickenbacker Causeway, Key Biscayne provides Una residents a chance to have a tropical island getaway any day of the week. Here, you’ll find the natural soul of South Florida, with turquoise beaches, boating opportunities, and upscale hotels and restaurants.

Another idyllic Miami destination is Coral Gables, noted for its outstanding Spanish-style architecture, shopping, dining, and art scenes, as well as its perfect, tropical, urban bucolic vibe. When you live at Una, you won’t ever have to miss a show at the Lowe Art Museum, including the current blockbuster, Hands and Earth: Six Perspectives on Contemporary Japanese Ceramics. You can also return again and again to see permanent works by greats like El Greco, Goya, Gainsborough, Picasso, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, and Louise Nevelson, as well as jewels of Greco-Roman, Renaissance, and Baroque art. End the day at Bulla Gastrobar, whose Spanish menu is the perfect complement to the local architecture, and which Zagat calls a “gem.”
Then, of course, to the East is all the action of Downtown Miami, where you can come to see headliners of all kinds, like the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena, where you can also catch Janet Jackson and Shakira live in concert this August. At the Perez Art Museum, Picasso’s Femme a la montre is now on view through October, adding yet another attraction to a museum on the waterfront whose building by Herzog & de Meuron is a work of art in and of itself.
With so much to do in every direction, you always have the option to fill your days with tropical beaches, sophisticated shopping and dining, and big city draws, but the best part of Una’s location is having all this and the perfect micro-neighborhood to linger in just outside your door. Alice Wainright Park, the Beaux Arts Gallery, and dinner at Edge Steak and Bar are literally steps from Una Residences, and, of course, spectacular views of the ocean will surround you in your home, making Una Residences a private oasis in the midst of some of the best public destinations in Miami.
While Miami has long been a draw for international buyers seeking luxury condos, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the latest group of condo buyers is coming from closer to home. Americans from states affected by a recent change in federal tax law are flocking to Florida to take advantage of the state’s low tax burden, making Brickell condos like those at the UNA Residences attractive to New Yorkers for more reasons than just the fantastic weather. These exquisite condos near Downtown Miami offer beachfront luxury, complete with handcrafted interiors and access to a private marina, as a stunning complement to the Sunshine State’s higher tax deductions and lack of personal income tax.

The latest project to come from his OKO Group is the Una Residences, a collection of luxury Brickell condos with design by the world-renowned Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture.

Avid enthusiasts of Miami luxury real estate have likely heard of Una Residences: the Brickell waterfront condos that are set to redefine the skyline. Designed by the acclaimed firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG), the undulating structure looks like a reflection of the water it borders. It swoops and glides between the clouds.
Upon completion, Una will rise 47 stories above the shoreline and feature some of the most impressive amenities available anywhere. They include a bayfront pool, a family pool, a kids’ splash area, a Jacuzzi, a movie theater, a fitness center, a spa, a catering kitchen, a party room, a children’s playroom, a private marina, and exclusive access to a private beachfront club. Aside from its long list of high-end comforts, there’s a level of sophistication and refinement at work here that has helped the building become a critical darling already.
Ocean Home Magazine called Una one of the most exciting oceanfront developments of the season. Miami Opinion said the views will be breathtaking and praised its cohesive design, stating that residents will feel like their home is part of the beach itself. InMoBiliare also lauded the building’s seamless integration with its surroundings, as well as its sophistication and elegance. Miami is no stranger to ambitious luxury residential projects, but Una has managed to set itself apart.
Many critics have commented on the building’s aesthetic, and how its nautical, Riva yacht-inspired look is contemporary and yet timeless. PROFILE Miami praised the natural quality and the meticulous attention to detail, noting a special fondness for the glass balcony railings. Una has been described as “sleek,” “wave-like,” “lush,” “crisp,” “warm,” and “futuristic.” There was clearly a lot of thought put into every inch of this property.
Looking at the porte cochère feels like looking at a Patek Philippe timepiece. The way the lines bend and turn, separating and then coming together in flourishes, is symphonic. There is a purity to the design that is not often achieved. Una is a graceful building that truly earns the “luxury” distinction; it’s immediately evident that there were no corners cut here, and Miami real estate mavens have surely taken notice.

Developer-turned-hotelier Vladislav Doronin tells GQ that when he left Russia in 1985 with $250 in his pocket, all he wanted to do was travel the world. Now, decades later, Doronin is not only a member of an elite group of globetrotters who frequent Aman’s luxury hotels around the world, he’s their CEO and owner. His goal when he bought Aman four years ago was to bring the luxury brand, which is known for having hotels in exotic locations, into the cities where Doronin’s residential real estate business has flourished. One such project, Una Residences in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood, is a perfect example of the kind of luxury Doronin envisions for all of his properties. These Brickell condos, which feature breathtaking views and rare waterfront access, were designed by the renowned Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture.
As the tide of international buyers that had defined the luxury housing market in Miami begins to dry up, Bloomberg is reporting that house-hunters from closer to home are beginning to see the advantages of living in the Sunshine State. Florida’s new low-tax laws are drawing Americans from higher-tax states, making homes like the luxury Brickell condos at Una extra-enticing for high-networth and high-earning individuals. Beyond just a big tax break, the Una Residences offer sumptuous and spacious interiors by world-renowned architects Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill as well as a suite of luxury amenities including a private marina with slips for purchase.
BisNow recently engaged some South Florida experts in a discussion about the future of development in the booming area. One of the local business leaders, Vladislav Doronin, talked about the two new luxury residential projects on Biscayne Bay that his company, OKO Group, is developing. The second of these projects, Una Residences, is scheduled to break ground in 2019. The project is being designed by acclaimed Gordon Gill + Adrian Smith Architecture, who took inspiration from the iconic Riva yacht to create a modern building that appears to flow like a luxury watercraft. Residents of these Brickell condos will even have access to a private marina where they can rent slips for their own yachts.
OKO Group’s Una Residences was home to this year’s Miami magazine Charity Social Datebook launch party, where five of the community’s esteemed altruists were joined by other philanthropically inclined guests for an evening of Bodvar rose wine and hors d’oeuvres from Shiraz Catering. The Brickell high-rise that was home to the event is just one of OKO Group’s forthcoming collections of Edgewater condos. The other project, Missoni Baia, is a 57-story tower on the shores of Biscayne Bay, which is being designed in partnership with the Italian fashion house and will feature Missoni-inspired motifs and items from the Missoni Home Collection in its public spaces.
The Una Residences team threw a party to celebrate the new collection of Miami waterfront condos, and Brickell Magazine was there to document the whole evening. Top brokers and other guests toasted to the building’s elegant design scheme of leather, wood, and steel, which was inspired by the sleek beauty of the Riva yacht. One of the night’s centerpieces was the scale model of the modern tower, which rises 47 stories and tapers at the bottom to create a futuristic silhouette overlooking lower Biscayne Bay. The building was designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, who made their names working on some of the world’s tallest and most impressive towers.
In a wide-ranging Q & A, Aman Group CEO Vladislav Doronin talked about the philosophy that has made the luxury hotel chain a worldwide phenomenon. While intimate customer service and attention to detail are crucial, Doronin stresses that a hotel’s location is what is most important, pointing out that Aman’s development process is slower than some of its competitors because the hotels are often located in protected parks or UNESCO Heritage Sites that provide guests with access to unique locales and experiences. Doronin’s dedication to the perfect location expresses itself in his residential projects as well. For example, the Brickell condos at Una Residences, which are currently under construction in Miami, are the first new waterfront homes in the neighborhood in decades.
Real estate developer and hotelier Vladislav Doronin has high standards for the hotels he stays in while traveling the globe to run his empire. In a recent conversation with the South China Morning Post, Doronin revealed his personal requirements for a perfect hotel experience, from being greeted at the curb to how the furniture is arranged in his room. These high standards are evident in Doronin’s own Aman Resorts and his residential projects like the Una Residences collection of Brickell Miami condos. Una is an oceanfront development with design by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture and exclusive access to a private marina.
When Traveller Magazine asked Aman Group CEO and developer Vladislav Doronin about his favorite hotels, the globetrotting executive was hard-pressed to narrow his list down to five. The result is a selection of some of the world’s finest destination hotels in both exotic and quotidian locations. Of all of the hotels, though, The Setai in Miami holds a special place in Doronin’s heart because it was where he stayed when he first moved to the city. Doronin now has deep ties to Miami, thanks to the Una Residences, a forthcoming collection of Brickell waterfront condos with design by the renowned Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture.
As a wave of new residential development crashes over Miami, existing residents of neighborhoods like Little Havana have begun to take advantage of Florida laws that help them leverage their equity to get the best deal for their land. For example, when OKO Group wanted to purchase the land for Una Residences, the developer bought out an 11-story condo building for a whopping $48 million. Una is not the only collection of Edgewater condos that OKO Group is bringing to Biscayne Bay. The developer is also working with Italian design house Missoni on the forthcoming Missoni Baia, a 57-story tower featuring a collection of beautiful condos and a suite of resort-caliber amenities, including an elevated tennis court and expansive private spa.
The 21st century has seen a shift in the paradigm for Miami’s luxury real estate market. Rather than vying for homes in traditional high-rises, buyers on the hunt for Miami waterfront condos are opting for new developments. The reason for this can be summed up in one word: lifestyle. Today’s buyers are after something specific, a lifestyle marked by a focus on personal wellbeing and privacy. And this, it seems, is a demand older high-rises often don’t have the ability to meet. Fortunately, the Brickell condos for sale at Una Residences are ahead of the curve when it comes to satisfying the desires of modern buyers.
By nature, most high-rises offer views. However, a stunning view in and of itself is not enough to elevate one’s daily experience. True luxury is achieved when views are coupled with thoughtful, precise design: a dynamic on clear display at Una Residences.
Here, sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows encase every living area, offering unbroken, vaulting views of Biscayne Bay. Where walls would have been, one looks instead upon the sky and water and the ever-shifting, beguiling light. The layout is open-concept, with rooms flowing effortlessly from one to another. As a result, the space imparts an impression of ease and a sense that the sky and sparkling sea are an integral part of your home. Generous ten-foot-deep terraces are set off the great rooms and bedrooms, meaning residents can transition seamlessly from their home to the natural world.
For a high-rise to truly serve modern residents, modern amenities are a prerequisite. In this area, Una Residences certainly excels. To start, there’s the third-floor terrace, where residents will find multiple pools, cabanas, grills, and outside bars, all carefully designed with balance in mind. Parents can take advantage of the family pool and play area; foodies can show off their skills on the grill; and residents needing to unwind after a long day at work can drift lazily across the Bayfront Pool, watching the last light of the day gleam on the water.
This sort of relaxation gives an added layer of satisfaction after a fulfilling workout at Una Residences, where residents can avoid the pitfall of skipping out on the gym because it involves an onerous journey. There will be no more lugging your gym bag across the city in search of the perfect studio—because the fitness center at Una Residences has state-of-the-art equipment, yoga studios, and private rooms for personal trainers, but beyond that, it has views. Those signature floor-to-ceiling windows enshrine the area, creating a light, airy space that feels almost too beautiful to be a gym. Running on a treadmill has never felt so serene, and your yoga practice is sure to benefit from an added dose of tranquility.
Residents at Una Residences are also afforded a membership to the Grand Bay Club in Key Biscayne. With heated pools, beachfront access, grand ballrooms, and high-end food and drink, your membership in this elite club ensures that you always have the perfect destination for grabbing a poolside drink with friends, meeting an important client, gathering your family for a special occasion, or just enjoying a little solo leisure time.

The Miami waterfront condos at the 47-story Una Residences are transforming the Brickell skyline with their stunning futuristic design. Developed by OKO Group and designed by Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill Architecture, the centrally located tower offers unobstructed water views and a wealth of amenities. In addition to its 135 luxury residences, ranging in size from two to five bedrooms, the building offers residents many extras, including a private marina, a state-of-the-art fitness center, five pools, and a spa with water views.
The 135 Brickell waterfront condos at Una Residences will soon welcome their first residents. With its unique and sculptural shape inspired by famed yacht maker Riva and its spacious terraces offering peerless water views, the 47-story luxury tower, designed by Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill Architecture and developed by OKO Group, is the perfect complement to Biscayne Bay. “Una’s yacht-inspired design transcends to its interiors, where the design is warm with beautiful detailing and incorporates natural materials like leather, wood, and stone in warm colors that contrast with the cool tones of chrome and stainless steel,” explains Jim Cohen, SVP of Development Sales at Fortune International Group, the exclusive brokerage firm for Una Residences.
The Brickell condos for sale at Una Residences are a modern waterfront wonder, offering residents peerless views of Biscayne Bay. Inspired by world-renowned yacht maker Riva, the building’s curvaceous, futuristic exterior, designed by Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill Architecture, looms large over its waterfront location—no surprise, considering that the architects also designed Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah Tower, which will soon be the world’s tallest building. When Una opens its doors to residents, they will enjoy homes ranging from 1,000 to 4,786 square feet, in addition to private elevator entry, spacious terraces, and dock space at the building’s private marina.
Developer Vladislav Doronin is bringing the 70s back to Brickell with his new skyscraper, UNA, and its collection of Miami waterfront condos. Though the area has been quiet for decades, Key Biscayne Magazine reminds us that the first residential high-rises in Miami were built in Brickell in the 1970s. Doronin, and his firm, OKO Group, are reinvigorating the neighborhood with UNA, the Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill-designed tower that is bringing luxury condos and resort-caliber amenities to the shores of Biscayne Bay. According to Doronin, UNA will “go a long way to enhancing Brickell Avenue’s growing reputation as the “Park Avenue of the South.”
The UNA Residences are coming to Brickell, and Key Biscayne Magazine showed off the beautiful new condos with a feature highlighting their design and location. These Brickell waterfront condos are being designed by the internationally renowned architects Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, who took the iconic look and texture of the wooden Riva yacht and brought it inside to create a collection of leather-, wood-, and metal-clad homes that feel as if they are cutting through the air above Biscayne Bay. This sleek 47-story tower sits on a waterfront location with a private marina and excellent transportation access, meaning that shopping destinations like Mary Brickell Village and cultural spots like the Adrienne Arsht Center are just minutes away.
Developers from around the world are flocking to Miami to build the next generation of luxury homes in that famous international city. OKO Group, the development company headed by Russian resort magnate Vladislav Doronin, is building two towers in the city, including a collection of Brickell waterfront condos called the “Una Residences.” With architecture by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and landscaping by Enzo Enea, these sleek, modern homes are designed to emphasize Biscayne Bay views with floor-to-ceiling windows and extra-wide private terraces. Residents can get even closer to the water at the building’s private marina, where slips are available for rent.
With two projects underway in Miami, the folks behind OKO Group are immersing themselves in the local culture, including sponsoring an exhibition celebrating the 35th anniversary of the iconic Surrounded Islands installation by Christo and Jeanne-Claude. This classic piece helped put Miami design on the map, and OKO Group is continuing that legacy of excellence with Una Residences, a new collection of Brickell condos designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. Inspired by the flowing lines and rich materials of the renowned Riva yacht, Una will rise 47 stories above the shore and will be home to 135 residences ranging in size from two to five bedrooms.
Architect Gordon Gill spoke with Cultured Magazine about the process of taking his design for Una Residences from three lines on a piece of paper to a fully realized 47-story tower on the shores of Biscayne Bay. Gill and his partner Adrian Smith were inspired by classical contrapposto sculptures, where most of the figure’s weight rests on one foot; the result is an asymmetrical tower that maximizes views in the Brickell condos on every floor while presenting an elegant, relaxed silhouette along the waterfront. The interior design channels the iconic Riva Yacht, with polished wood, rich leather, and exposed metal giving the building’s spaces a refined and powerful aspect.
There was a time when living in the suburbs in places like Coral Gables seemed like the best compromise between city life and a more peaceful existence, but with the new Brickell Waterfront condos at Una Residences, such a compromise has been rendered obsolete. With their perfect location and unparalleled amenities, Una Residences’ Miami condominiums offer a lifestyle that doesn’t merely match all the ease and privacy of the suburbs; it surpasses them—with a reinvention of city living that takes having it all to the next level.
The first thing that places Una in a league of its own is its connection to the water. The building is designed to invoke the sleek lines of a Riva yacht, and that feeling of constant connection to sun-illuminated waves is not just a physical reality but a state of mind. Biscayne Bay’s natural beauty is always in sight, courtesy of views that must be seen to be believed.
Una’s amenities suite includes five pools, so your after-work ritual can be a refreshing swim, exactly how you like it. Float in the quiet of the bayfront pool surrounded by thoughtfully planted trees and flowers, where you can exercise and commune with nature right at home. Thanks to a designated family pool and a kids’ splash pool, your daily decompression can include the whole family.
For a total relaxation experience, spend some time in the whirlpool. If you are looking for a real workout, hit the fitness room, where you can use the machines or do Pilates or yoga in one of the spaces set aside expressly for that purpose. Water views will be your backdrop, no matter what endorphin-releasing activity you choose.
With the freedom to roam in a host of nearby green spaces like Alice C. Wainwright Park, Allen Morris Brickell Park, and Bayfront Park, children of all ages will develop that taste for exploration and ease on the water that ocean dwellers have, honing their boating, windsurfing, and swimming skills and also letting the vast blue space feed their imaginations.
With unobstructed views over the shimmering water of the bay and a few minutes’ drive from Key Biscayne, residents can enjoy the intersection where nature meets pristine tropical beaches. Here, you will also find an extension of Una’s amenities at the Grand Bay Club, to which Una residents will have exclusive access.
Another perk of living in Brickell Waterfront (for kids and adults alike) is the unparalleled access to culture. Miami has quickly become an international art destination; Art Basel and a growing number of galleries and museums in the public eye have become a part of the Miami landscape. You can spend Saturday gallery hopping and Sunday in a private cabana by the sea, all within a few minutes of Una Residences, where access to the vibrancy of the city is combined with the ease of a luxury vacation for every member of the family, every day of the week.

When OKO Group approached Gordon Gill about designing its newest collection of Brickell condos, the architect saw a unique opportunity. The resulting design from AS + GG Architecture is a sleek waterfront tower with flowing lines and rich materials inspired by the iconic Riva yacht. The building will stand contrapposto, with one side slouching while the other stands tall, creating a sense of wavelike motion across the facade. Inside, the sinuous design continues into the public spaces and ample homes, which feature floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Downtown Miami and beautiful Biscayne Bay. Residents at Una will also have access to the building’s private marina, complete with slips for their own watercraft.
While most private yacht owners store their watercraft on the Mediterranean Sea, Una Residences in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood is making a strong claim for stateside slips. The luxury Miami high-rise is home to a private marina, where homeowners can have a slip of their own mere feet from where they lay their head. Its new Brickell condos feature architecture by AS + GG Architecture, which took inspiration from the classic lines and materials of the iconic Riva yacht when envisioning the building. The result is a collection of homes built out of polished wood and stainless steel and highlighted with supple leather and stone detailing.
Luxury Magazine lauded Una Residences in its recent luxury real estate roundup. The forthcoming collection of new Brickell condos from Vladislav Doronin’s OKO Group will rise 47 stories above the Brickell Waterfront neighborhood and feature 135 Miami waterfront condos, complete with private terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows that show off the breathtaking Biscayne Bay views. Designed by the renowned international firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, Una was inspired by the iconic Riva yacht. The result is a flowing structure finished in rich wood and leather, which looks out on a private marina perfect for residents’ own watercraft.
Between the dazzling Miami sun and the azure waters of Biscayne Bay, a new paradigm is emerging at Una Residences. Its luxury Brickell condos are unsurpassed in their design and craftsmanship, with amenities and a location that afford its residents unlimited possibilities for luxurious living. With breathtaking views of the Bay and access to all that the vibrant Brickell neighborhood has to offer, it’s not hard to see why anyone wouldn’t love to call Una home. But it took a keen eye to envision this joining of progressive architecture and natural beauty.
When two world-renowned developers, Vladislav Doronin and Jonathan Goldstein, visited the future site of Una, they were inspired. Here was a parcel of land perfectly positioned on the Brickell Waterfront, primed for the luxurious landscaping of Enzo Enea, and ideal for an Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture-designed tower that takes its inspiration from the elegant yachts that dot Biscayne Bay. The pair of developers will ultimately be credited with seeing what other Miami developers could not; Una is the first new building to be constructed on the Brickell Waterfront in over a decade.
Such vision is what Doronin and Goldstein are both known for, evidenced by their projects around the globe. Mr. Doronin made his mark in his home country of Russia, developing the evocative OKO Tower – the second tallest tower in Europe, The Capital City complex in Moscow City, and more recently, Missoni Baia in Edgewater. His ability to see the potential in existing structures and underutilized land parcels has earned praise from peers and press alike; Forbes says that Doronin is the “businessman who changed Moscow for the better.” Now, with over 70 successful projects in Asia, Europe, and the U.S. and 75 million square feet of real estate in his portfolio—including work with Zaha Hadid, Hani Rashid, and Massimo Iosa Ghini—the CEO of OKO Group has set his sights on bringing his sense of refined luxury to the Miami waterfront condos at Una Residences.
London-born Jonathan Goldstein shines equally bright in the real estate industry, as his investments have garnered worldwide acclaim. As the CEO of Cain International, a global real estate investment company that was founded in 2014, Goldstein is shepherding a diverse portfolio of projects, including London’s Islington Square, Canary Wharf, and Here East Technology Centre and Miami’s own Missoni Baia. Since he took the helm, Cain has enjoyed consistent recognition for its innovative approach to financing premier developments, and last year, Goldstein received the Property Awards’ Entrepreneur of the Year.
Understanding the skill and experience both men possess, it’s no surprise that the real estate world was aflutter when Una was revealed. Together, Goldstein and Doronin are poised create a modern Miami landmark that engages seamlessly with the Brickell Waterfront’s prime natural setting. Watch our latest film to learn more about how Una came to be.
Una Residences, Vladislav Doronin and OKO Group’s newest collection of Brickell luxury condos, was featured in the latest issue of Ocean Home as one of this season’s most exciting oceanfront developments. Designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the same team behind the majestic Jeddah Tower and the Burj Khalifa, Una will rise 47 stories from the banks of Biscayne Bay and feature luxury homes inspired by the graceful lines of Riva yachts. Residents will enjoy sweeping views of the Bay and Downtown Miami from their spacious condos and private terraces, which are deep-set to provide ample outdoor space as well as shelter from the Miami sun.
When the world-renowned architects at Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill first approached the design of Una Residences, the objective was clear as the sky above Biscayne Bay itself: to create a sculptural, refined form that would encapsulate the Brickell Waterfront identity and lifestyle, in both appearance and experience.
It is no secret that Brickell is quickly becoming the epicenter of Miami. Still, the Brickell Waterfront enclave offers peace and privacy in spades, even as Miami’s art scene, best restaurants, and nightlife are just minutes away. Direct access to the waterfront, as well as parks and walking paths, imbue Una’s surroundings with a sense of tranquility. As such, life at Una eschews compromise, at once an oasis and a gateway.
Synthesizing the Brickell Waterfront’s prime setting with cutting-edge luxury real estate design, Una’s shape is effortlessly in-tune with its locale. Interiors flow effortlessly, thanks to sliding doors that connect open-plan living spaces and private quarters. Clean and crisp architecture is complimented by warm, natural finishes, including teak and walnut cabinetry, at once modern and timeless.
Uniquely situated directly on the bay, and with windows granting breathtaking views of sky and sea, Una’s silhouette will reference the lines and textures of classic yacht design, fusing the concept of “home” with waterfront living in an entirely new way. Its stunning glass façade will be encircled by private terraces, affording residents every advantage of living at the intersection of sea and city, with natural beauty and organic elegance. Once complete, Una will stand as a beacon of Brickell Waterfront, which has become one of Miami’s most desirable neighborhoods.
Una Residences represents the very best of contemporary cosmopolitan living, where unobstructed Biscayne Bay views meet vibrant streets, cultural institutions, and urban convenience. As a resident of these luxury Brickell condos, the calming beauty of the sea and the glitter of the city are just outside your doorstep, each ready when you are.

Vladislav Doronin’s OKO Group is on a roll in Miami.

When designing Una, which will feature a private marina among its many amenities, AS + GG took inspiration from the flowing lines and rich palette of the Riva yacht.

When complete, owners of Una Residences will be able to enjoy breathtaking Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay views from their 180-degree private terraces and through their floor-to-ceiling windows.

With waterfront space along Miami’s stretch of Biscayne Bay in limited supply, developers are buying old buildings in order to tear them down and build on the property. One such developer, OKO Group, has chosen to house the sales gallery for their newest project in just such a building as they prepare to replace the existing structure with Una. This new, stylish high-rise will stand 47 stories tall and feature design by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. All 135 Brickell condos at Una will provide unbeatable Biscayne Bay views via floor-to-ceiling windows, and residents will have access to a generous array of amenities, including a private marina with boat slips and a lush garden designed by Enzo Enea.
Vladislav Doronin and his real estate company, OKO Group, recently celebrated the launch of their second Miami residential high-rise, this time going up south of Brickell. OKO Group officers hosted some of Miami’s movers and shakers for a sunset toast in the building’s honor, along with a fireworks show and musical performance by a Latin jazz ensemble. The 47-story luxury tower is being designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture and will be known as the “Una Residences.” These Brickell condos will feature a flowing organic aesthetic and high-end living spaces, from which residents will enjoy breathtaking Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay views.

Vladislav Doronin’s OKO Group Announces New Waterfront Tower, Una, Set to Soar Near Crossroads of Key Biscayne and Coconut Grove in Brickell
Renowned developer Vladislav Doronin has assembled an international team of designers to craft Una, OKO Group’s newly announced collection of luxury Miami waterfront condos. Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture is handling the building’s design, which will feature flowing lines and natural materials inspired by Riva yachts. The tower will stand 47 stories tall and be home to 135 luxury residences, each with bay views, flow-through layouts, floor-to-ceiling windows, Gaggenau appliances in the kitchen, and touches like glass balcony railings. Una will be located in the south of the Brickell neighborhood near the crossroads of Coconut Grove’s Main Highway and Brickell Avenue, which will give residents convenient access to transportation and Biscayne Bay.
Developer OKO Group just announced a new collection of Brickell Waterfront condos to be built on the neighborhood’s southern edge. The project, titled “Una,” will rise 47 stories and be home to 135 luxury residences from international firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, which has designed a flowing, glassy facade for the building that was inspired by luxury watercraft. The residences will range in size from two to five bedrooms, in addition to two penthouses with private pools; residents will have access to amenities ranging from a state-of-the-art spa to a private marina. Sales are being handled by Fortune Development and are expected to begin this month.
With limited land ready for new development, Vladislav Doronin and OKO Group had to get creative when looking for the location for their new collection of Miami waterfront condos. The solution, it turned out, was to buy an existing building, which ended up being a win-win: Doronin got the perfect place for Una, a 47-story luxury high-rise set for completion in 2020, and the site’s old inhabitants made a tidy profit. Now, with the help of Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, OKO Group is working to build Una, which will feature 135 luxury residences and an amenities suite which includes numerous pools and a private spa.
Developer Vladislav Doronin spent more than a year looking for the perfect location for his next residential project in Miami. It had to be in a great pedestrian neighborhood, have a waterfront location, and offer easy access to the city’s financial district as well as high-end restaurants and yacht clubs. Doronin finally found his site in Brickell and is pleased to announce Una, the new collection of Brickell Waterfront condos from OKO Group and Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. The building will rise 47 stories high and feature a facade inspired by luxury watercraft, many of which will certainly be housed in the development’s private marina.
