Construction recently began on a new tower by AS+GG (Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill), the firm behind the Jeddah Tower. Named Una Residences, it will have an unusual nautical-inspired design and provide well-heeled residents with luxurious apartments on Miami’s waterfront.

Una Residences is located in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood. The building will rise to a total height of 579 ft (176 m) and is inspired by Italian yacht maker Riva’s yachts, both in terms of its exterior and interior design.”Una’s subtly undulating surface and strong silhouette stands proud at the water’s edge,” says Adrian Smith Design Partner, AS+GG.

” We drew inspiration from the elegant shape and opulent materials used in classic yacht design – particularly the beautifully lacquered wood, exposed materials, and stainless-steel connections found on the Italian-made yacht, the Riva. Carefully crafted and detailed and meticulously designed, it is elegant and relaxing.

Its primary goal is to relate well and add to the beauty of Miami and the wonderful lifestyle this city is so well known for.”
