In 1992, he began his first solo development, the 147-unit Bristol Tower. “I learned so much with that project,” he says. “The fact that it looks just as modern today as it did over 20 years ago is a great feeling of accomplishment.” His latest project, Brickell Flatiron, continues his practice of enhancing the community in by bringing in elements of culture to the space. “Whether it be through art or a restaurant like Zuma, I like to make sure a property is left with something unique and special that everyone can enjoy and appreciate,” he says. The 64th Floor of Brickell Flatiron will boast a spa with therapeutic services, a fitness center and a pool deck with 360-degree unobstructed water & city views; BrickellFlatiron.com.
