will be forged on three city blocks between 500 and 700 Alton Road in Miami Beach, the centerpiece of which could become
the tallest tower in Miami Beach. The 3-acre park will include a tot lot, dog park, and impressive green space. It will also be connected to the baywalk and beachwalk via an elevated pedestrian bridge.

  • Both buildings offer reduction in potable water use for irrigation through drought-tolerant landscaping and water-efficient irrigation, and the South building has 100% potable water use reduction via a rainwater collection cistern.
  • Buildings are collectively served by an energy-efficient central HVAC system. 
  • Amenities in all buildings are designed to service all tenants on the campus.
  • Retail space on the North building is connected to the existing South Tower on their 5th floors by means of programmable space shared by all buildings, including outdoor meeting space and outdoor landscaped terraces, water features and pool.
  • The new Onyx tower is also connected on the 9th floor by a programmable outdoor space including a lush, landscaped roof garden, meeting areas, recreational amenities, a jogging trail, and a fitness center.
