JDS Development is known to be “skyline disruptors” so we can’t wait what they are going to deliver with Dolce & Gabbana.
This super tall building will be a hybrid hotel and luxury condo
This super tall building will be a hybrid hotel and luxury condo in the heart of Miami’s Brickell area. The building is most probably going to be occupy the former JDS’ 888 Brickell project, which was previously going to be a Major Food Group branded tower. It was going to be a 90-story building called The Major. Who knows why JDS and MFG parted ways. It could be that they have different visions, business models or that they simply want to work in different locations. Major Food Group has teamed up with Terra and One Thousand Group to do the super exclusive Villa Residences with helipad and Carbone style dining experience (Major Food Group owns Carbone) in Edgewater Miami.
At 1,049 feet tall, the branded tower could become among the tallest in Miami
What can we expect from Dolce & Gabbana and JDS?
We can probably expect something shimmering with lobby interiors boasting a design that is in line with the iconic Dolce & Gabbana’s style.
As for the architecture, let’s take a closer look
“The façade features an elegant and restrained combination of ivory travertine, and glossy black steel beams that give the building an expressly vertical appearance, setting it far apart from its neighbors. Towards street level, the building dons a gold beaded “necklace” that brings a warm luster and brilliant shine to the property.
Not your average condo-hotel
There will be 259 turnkey, hybrid residences, ranging from 1-4 bedrooms. All will be curated by William Sofield of Studio Sofield, decorator of Park Grove’s residence kitchens and primary bathrooms of Park Grove.
From private residences to private suites
“Conceived and designed as fully hybrid layouts, each 888 Residence utilizes a “lockout” function between the two main entry points, allowing for seamless conversions between a private residence, hotel suite, and/or hotel room. Within each residence is a discreet internal door that, when opened, creates a spacious private, multi-room residence, and when closed, a 888 Room and 888 Suite”.
115,000 sf of amenities
Sofield will also design, program and curate the amenities at Dolce & Gabbana’s super luxurious and super tall building including the Pool Club.
