Oceanside Fantasy

Terra’s Eighty Seven Park to rise on North Beach

By Leslie J. Kraft

Imagine living as if you’re floating above two parks and the Atlantic Ocean. That fantasy will be reality for those who buy into Eighty Seven Park, an ultra-luxury condominium being built in Miami Beach by Terra Group, in partnership with New Valley and Bizzi & Partners Development.

Located at 8701 Collins Ave., where North Shore Park meets the shores of North Beach, the landmark building will comprise 70 units ranging from approximately 1,400 to 7,000 square feet, all atop two lush parks with unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. Prices start at $2 million for units in the project, which is expected to be completed in 2018.

Developed in close collaboration with the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, RDAI in Paris, and West 8 in Rotterdam, Netherlands, Eighty Seven Park’s design is meant to blur the lines between imagination and craftsmanship.

Recognized in Miami for the stunning new Hermès flagship store in the Design District, RDAI designed the interiors of Eighty Seven Park with a palette inspired by nature. The design firm began planning the project by collecting items found in the landscape surrounding the development site, including pebbles, shells, leaves, driftwood and sea grass. The light-oak flooring matches the color of aged sea grape leaves, while Venetian terrazzo floors echo Miami’s white-sand beaches.

The only color not matched was the sky, which, through the project’s custom floor-to-ceiling glass windows, becomes the canvas for the inspired interiors. The building itself will appear like a modern ship rising from the sea.

“The palette created for this project was inspired by the surrounding natural elements of North Beach,” says Denis Montel of RDAI. “Capitalizing on the architectural vision of the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, we wanted owners of this building to feel that they were one with nature from their first step inside.”

Amenities include a spectacular pool area staffed by valets, who will provide towels and drinks from Eighty Seven Park’s Fugo Bar. There will also be a private gym and spa with state-of-the-art equipment, health coaching, treatments and sauna and steam facilities.

The lobby of Eighty Seven Park promises to be a study in luxury as well, featuring a library and the Enoteca Bar, which will serve botanically inspired drinks.
