the residences at 1428 brickell: a luxury tower in miami


ACPV ARCHITECTS Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Arquitectonica unveil the design of its Residences at 1428 Brickell, a 70-story tower to transform the Miami skyline. The project is developed by 1428 Brickell, LLC, a subsidiary of real estate development firm Ytech, and will be located at one of the most prestigious addresses on Miami’s Brickell Avenue. The building will be the first ever high-rise residential tower using solar energy, and will introduce 189 luxury homes — including a Penthouse Collection — to the sunny coastal city.

The Residences at 1428 Brickell will show architecture by Arquitectonica and interiors by ACPV ARCHITECTS Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel will be the world’s first luxury, high-rise residential tower to integrate photovoltaic glazing within the building’s façade. This solar energy feature is deftly blended into the building’s architectural aesthetic, expressing the importance of sustainability and carbon reduction along each of its seventy stories.


Since the solar cells are integrated into the glass, the effective lifespan of the panels can match the window itself. The property will feature five hundred photovoltaic-integrated windows along the west-facing façade, creating a ‘Solar Backbone’ comprising nearly 20,000 square feet of energy-producing glass.


With this orientation and permanently installed generating capacity, the system is capable of producing up to 170,000 kilowatts, or 170 megawatts, of clean energy per year. This is intended to result in the reduction of approximately 4,700 tons of CO2 and the use of 3,000 barrels less of oil.


Ytech has selected award-winning firm Cosentini Associates as the property’s expert solar energy consultant to implement this technology into The Residences at 1428 Brickell.
