This Pritzker Prize-winning architect and real estate tycoon has launched his first residential project in the western hemisphere—Eighty Seven Park. With 66 units, beachfront living, luxurious design, two spacious parks, and collaboration with Rena Dumas Architecture Intérieure (RDAI) in Paris, there is so much to love about this new coastal sanctuary and private green ground nestled on the northern city limits of Miami Beach. But to hear our personal favorites, read on:
It is the only Residential Building in Miami Sitting atop the Ocean And Park
Bound by land and sea, this new residential property floats above the ocean and is burrowed between 2 parks. The only building of its kind, this Miami landmark is a seaside haven and a secret garden, with not one park but two—one for residents and one for the city.
The “Key to the Park”
Just like the forbidden green grounds in Gramercy Park, Eighty Seven Park residents will now hold their own coveted key. This virtually unreachable private 2-acre park and gardens will summon you to nature’s aura. Featuring terraces, gardens, lounges, pools, and an outdoor pavilion, this mini Central Park is so lovely, you might even request wrapping it with wrought-iron gates. Siesta or picnic for two?
Residential Lobby with Greenhouse “Orangery”
Bringing nature indoors, Eighty Seven Park’s unique residential lobby lends homage to a greenhouse “orangery,” designed to mimic the lush surroundings of your local Miami tropical backdrop. Curated regularly, this indoor botanical garden will adorn the finest collection of orchids to some of the rarest items such as Bonsais and Petit Cacti. To top it off, this reception will even second as a gallery, showcasing selected imagery of those delicate dainty orchids you can’t take your eyes off of.
Private In-House Botanist
Inspired by the Florida Botanical Gardens and looking to design your own natural preserve? Renzo Piano has it covered. With a certified botanist available on property to tend to your natural oasis, your garden will bloom into a living work of art so stunning, its fit for the Royal Gardens.
This sugar plum fairy may have redesigned costumes from the Nutcracker Sweet, but now she’s dressing Eighty Seven Park too. Cuban artistic and romantic power couple, Ruben and Isabel Toledo, are bringing a new flare to the branding materials and even the staff uniforms. From botanist to the butler, Isabel Toledo will be painting the team with glitz and glamour. Twirling snowflakes and waltzing flowers? Checkmark.
Are you a connoisseur of fine wines, but have no time to tour the vines? Renzo Piano has a solution, and he’s building it right in your backyard—a home wine cellar with brie and crackers included. Residents can stop by downstairs and sip on over 100 reds, whites, and rosés from vineyards around the globe, while nibbling on canapes, tapas, and food pairings. Intimate wine tastings in the private garden with a local sommelier are also available with bottles for take home and delivery.
Looking for super foods that give you super powers? Head downstairs for a nutrient boost at Eighty Seven Park’s poolside bar, Fugo, which offers freshly made juices, yogurts, and salads, Shaded beneath crisp white awnings, this healthy hot spot runs down towards the ocean, where you can even post up on a chaise and order deliveries straight from your iPhone or iPad.
An Intimate Library
Escaping the daily digital world is often impossible. But with Renzo Piano’s award-winning selection of books, it’s becoming possible. With an off-site librarian available to help, residents can choose from art, design, architecture, and even botany books to rest and restore their minds. Celebrate a girl’s night out with a book signing of a bestseller collection or plan a bonding night with a book club.
