As residents take ownership of their units, begin interior buildouts and prepare to move in, it’s time to take a moment to reflect on what Brickell Flatiron means to our city. The development has attracted a diverse mix of residents, including a significant percentage of domestic buyers. While the tower has enjoyed steady sales activity among buyers from Mexico, Argentina, Italy, Venezuela and Colombia, approximately 70% of the building’s buyers came from U.S. markets, evidence that Americans are increasingly drawn to Downtown Miami’s urban lifestyle, which comes at a fraction of the price of luxury living in other gateway cities. The tower’s design is the brainchild of architect Luis Revuelta, who is behind many of CMC Group’s iconic high-rises across Miami, including Bristol Tower, Santa Maria and the EPIC. CMC Group founder and Brickell Flatiron’s developer Ugo Colombo enlisted master Italian designer Massimo Iosa Ghini to create one-of-a-kind spaces throughout the building that are adorned with premium materials ranging from Milldue cabinets and hand-cut Italian marble floors, to custom kitchens by Snaidero and professional-grade Miele appliances;
