The Residences at 1428 Brickell has unveiled its stunning two-story, fully-finished $60 million penthouse that crowns the luxury property. The penthouse has over 12,000 square feet of living space and a 30-foot ceiling height that offers views of the Miami skyline, the Fort Lauderdale cityscape to the north, the Everglades to the west, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east and south. Recently, 1428 Brickell, LLC, a subsidiary of Miami-based real estate development firm Ytech, is managing the project.
The penthouse is designed to offer a luxurious living experience. The property will boast two stories, with 30-foot ceilings equivalent to almost four levels of a traditional building. It comprises seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, two east-facing balconies that provide stunning views of the Brickell skyline, two elevators that lead to a private foyer, and an additional elevator within the residence that goes up to the second floor.
“Our objective was clear: to create one of the most exceptional penthouse residences in the world,” Yamal Yidios says, CEO of Ytech. “The Penthouse at 1428 Brickell sets new standards in luxury living, not just in Miami but globally.”
The luxury building was curated by Milan-based ACPV ARCHITECTS, which Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel lead. The design of this luxury masterpiece is a testament to unrivaled craftsmanship. It is heavily influenced by iconic figures of the 20th century, such as Oscar Niemeyer, Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Angelo Mangiarotti, Charlotte Perriand, and Philip Johnson.
“Our commitment was to evoke the spirit of architectural and design masters of the 20th century,” Citterio says. “Through a unique combination of light, space, and texture, we’ve created a penthouse that reinterprets luxury.”
The penthouse was meticulously designed by Ytech’s team, who drew inspiration from renowned design icons such as Niemeyer, Philip Johnson, and Mangiarotti. The team incorporated elements from these masters’ work, including Niemeyer’s sweeping curves, Johnson’s emphasis on livable spaces, and Mangiarotti’s focus on natural materials. The result was an opulent space that featured silk georgette marble, eucalyptus wood claddings, mineral lime-based finishes, fluted glass walls, spaghetti stone touches, and ash flooring. Ytech’s team traveled the globe to handpick each of these materials, ensuring they met the project’s exacting standards.
“We took inspiration from design greats, channeling their genius into crafting a space that harmoniously combines elegance and functionality,” Viel says. “Each detail prioritizes residents’ experience from the moment they arrive at the building until they reach the privacy of their residence.”
The development and design teams worked together to consider crucial elements while designing the residence in the sky. These elements included configuring front- and back-of-house circulation schemes, planning the flow of rooms to balance day and night areas, integrating a specialized structural and envelope design, and bringing in specialists for the comprehensive 3-D concept, schematic, and design analysis of critical spaces. Exhaustive research informed the creation of a stone-clad sculptural stairway, which is a centerpiece of the residence. The teams studied more than 32 different designs to achieve perfection. An extensive solar study was conducted to guarantee every space captures optimal light. This imbues the residence with a mesmerizing glow that shifts with the sun, immersing residents in the sublime, panoramic city vistas and ensuring a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor luxuries.
“I’ve seen many luxury residences in my career, but nothing like The Penthouse at 1428 Brickell,” Alicia Cervera Lamadrid says, managing partner of Cervera Real Estate who holds the exclusive listing for the residence. “It’s more than just a home; it’s art, history, and luxury woven into one.”
The penthouse boasts a two-story floor plan encompassing a range of features, including a custom-designed library bar with silk georgette accents and a primary bathroom adorned with Salvatori stone. The residence exudes sophistication with its refined staging, showcasing other unique elements like pivoting walls, a sculptural stone bar, and a walk-in, temperature-controlled wine cellar. The artisans of Vaselli, chosen for their exclusivity, immense history, and excellence in stonework, will be responsible for crafting a stunning centerpiece-like front-of-house kitchen. Italy’s Arclinea has been handpicked to design a one-of-a-kind chef’s kitchen within the residence. The firm is known for its innovative and precise construction of complex kitchens, with integral consideration of one’s livability and function within culinary spaces.
