Herzog & de Meuron to design residential tower in Miami

News: developers have released images of a 57-storey residential tower designed by Herzog & de Meuron for Miami.


The 198-metre Jade Signature tower by Herzog & de Meuron on an estate in Miami's Sunny Isles district will accommodate 192 residences, ranging from one-bedroom apartments to a 975-square-metre penthouse.


The building's parallelogram-shaped plan will help to angle the apartments towards the southern sun and floor-to-ceiling windows will provide views of the ocean. Hourglass-shaped columns will feature at the extremities of the balconies encircling the tower.

Interiors will be designed by Pierre Yves Rochon's Parisian firm PYR and Miami landscape architect Raymond Jungles will create a tropical garden surrounding the building.

Herzog & de Meuron's first building in Miami was an angular concrete and glass car park with a retail area at its base.

The firm recently completed an extension to an exhibition centre in Basel and has been granted planning permission for a new building at Oxford University.

Zaha Hadid Architects is also working on a residential skyscraper in Miami, while a competition to redevelop the site of the Miami Beach Convention Center has received entries from Rem Koolhaas's OMA and Danish firm BIG – see all projects in Miami.
