Dockside Debut

Dockside Debut

This Mid-Beach site doesn’t have your typical development history. In 1925 it was constructed as the King Cole Hotel; in the 1940s, the parcel was redeveloped as the Miami Heart Institute, which operated until 2004. And now? Step into luxury hospitality at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach (featured image here and above). Developed by Lionheart Capital, with Stantec as the architect of record, the project came to fruition through the talents of Italian master architect, Piero Lissoni. Stantec took on the task of converting the former hospital by transforming six hospital buildings into a premier multi-family condo totaling approximately 678,000 gross square feet. With notable amenities, such as a residential art studio and 36 private boat dockages, The Ritz-Carlton Residences impresses as an exclusive collection of 111 units, including lofts and penthouses ranging in size from 2,000 to more than 10,000 square feet. And the wow factor: an astounding 26,000-square-foot rooftop pool boasting views from ocean to bay.

Captivated by an exhibit of Peruvian art at the MET, Jay Britto and David Charette took their inspiration for Wasi (the Quechua word for “home”) from the tools and artifacts of the ancient Inca.
