The Residences at 1428 Brickell, a 70-story condo tower featuring a collection of 189 units priced from $2 million to $7 million, will soon adorn Miami’s skyline as the first high-rise residential tower in the world partially powered by the sun. Designed by Milan-based ACPV ARCHITECTS Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, the property includes a Penthouse Collection priced from $8 million to over $40 million. 1428 Brickell, LLC, a subsidiary of Miami-based real estate development firm Ytech, is developing the condo tower, with Cervera Real Estate serving as the sales team representing the property while John Moriarty Associates (JMA) is the general contractor.
The solar energy aspect will be blended into the building’s architectural aesthetic to enhance sustainability and carbon reduction along its 70 floors. The solar cells are integrated into the glass to ensure the effective lifespan of the panels can match the window itself. The property will feature 500 photovoltaic-integrated windows along the west-facing façade, creating a “Solar Backbone” comprising nearly 20,000 square feet of energy-producing glass, capable of producing up to 170,000 kilowatts, or 170 megawatts, of clean energy per year. Ytech has selected award-winning firm Cosentini Associates as the property’s solar energy consultant to implement the technology.
“Over a decade of planning and market research has come to fruition with The Residences at 1428 Brickell,” Yamal Yidios says, CEO of Ytech. “Ytech’s vision is to create residential sanctuaries in an urban environment where design is driven first and foremost by resident experience and needs. Complemented by impeccable architecture and advanced engineering, a remarkable combination of form and function, The Residences at 1428 Brickell will become iconic in delivering an unparalleled, service-oriented living experience.“
