1010 Brickell to Feature a Magnificent Natural Art Installation in the Lobby

1010lobby

You’ve heard about the incredible fitness, health and relaxation amenities coming to 1010 Brickell– running track overlooking the Miami Skyline, indoor pool, rock-climbing wall, luxury spa, and much more- but have you heard about the incredible art structure planned for the lobby?

A fantastic art installation from renowned Colombian designer and artist Lucas Jaramillo is one step closer to taking root in the lobby at 1010 Brickell. After scouring the tropical forest and coastline of La Guajira, Colombia, Jaramillo has located and excavated the perfect fallen tree, buried on the beach at the mouth of the Rio Palomino. Jaramillo is now in the creative process of constructing a beautiful and functional installation for the lobby at 1010 Brickell.

It’s the first step in a more than two-year process, where the 16-foot naturally fallen tree will be repurposed to become a dramatic work of sustainable art that not only enhances the beauty of 1010 Brickell with its intricate and beautiful root structure, but also gives back to the natural environment from where it was found. As a carbon neutral project, Jaramillo will plant 25,000 seedlings in the Colombian rainforest in order to ensure the next generation of trees in the area is sustainable.

This is just another way in which the high-end development is going to redefine urban luxury living in the heart of Miami- Brickell, Downtown.

“People are excited by this building,” added Arnaud Karsenti, Managing Principal of 13th Floor Investments. “It’s different than anything else out there right now. It’s actually designed with the end users in mind and the market is responding with resounding approval.”

The Miami Real Estate Market is On Fire According to Recent Trend Reports

miamiaerial

According to the Miami Association of Realtors, strong demand for real estate in vibrant Miami resulted in a third consecutive record sales year and two years of double-digit price appreciation.

“Record demand for Miami properties from both domestic and international buyers resulted in another sales record in 2013,” said 2014 Chairman of the Board of the MIAMI Association of REALTORS Liza Mendez. “We expect strong demand to continue in 2014 for Miami real estate but are encouraged that more homeowners are listing homes for sale, creating more balance between buyers and sellers.”

There were 30,041 homes and condos sold in Miami-Dade County in 2013, setting a new annual record that is 8% higher than the previous record set in 2012. Sales of single-family homes last year totaled 12,901, an increase of 12.5% compared to the previous year’s total of 11,463. Condominium sales increased 4.6%, from 16,383 in 2012 to 17,140 in 2013. Preconstruction developments, such as 1010 Brickell, are very popular investments.

Starwood Capital Group CEO Barry Sternlicht also said Florida’s lack of income tax is attractive to companies and high-net-worth individuals. “Everyone wants to come here,” he said. “Also, you have really low taxes. We’ve noticed. My generation, which is the tail end of baby boomers, we’re coming. We’re changing our addresses and we’re coming to low-tax states.”

Outside investments are good, but Related Group CEO Jorge Perez said one thing Miami needs is more local buyers. Calling it “the hottest city in the world,” Miami has no problem attracting international money, he said. “South Florida has become, as opposed to just being fun in the sun, a serious city, a great city,” Perez said. “In terms of problems in South Florida, we still don’t have the local buyers for our private properties we’re building.”

South Florida’s rental market also remains strong, Camden Property Trust President Keith Oden said, “We love this market,” Oden said. “We think there is a lot of underlying strength here, and 2014 looks to be another strong year.”

According to the folks behind the project, the transparent design will ensure children can be seen by their parents from anywhere in the gym — and come with a parent/child wristband system for additional security.

Oh, and there’s also two bowling lanes, an outdoor water park, virtual golf, mini golf, co-ed hammam, plunge pools, steam rooms, yoga and massage areas, too, so basically residents will never ever ever need to leave the building except for the occasional Publix sub run.
