welcome to brickell city centre — miami’s epicenter of urban-living. situated in greater downtown miami and just five miles from the city’s sandy shores, brickell is home to a burgeoning financial district, luxury condo developments and commercial skyscrapers, iconic architectural landmarks, metro-train connections, premier shopping, cafes, cultural happenings, restaurants and a vibrant nightlife scene. anchored around the 4.9 million square-foot, mixed-use complex brickell city centre — developed by swire properties — the neighborhood has quickly become a landmark urban destination.
during miami art week, designboom lived as downtown locals and experienced the live, work and play personality of miami’s brickell city centre.
REACH is a 43-story tower designed by internationally acclaimed firm, arquitectonica
located in miami’s geographic heart, brickell city centre truly encompasses a ‘city within a city’, with two mid-rise office buildings, two residential towers — REACH and RISE — the luxury EAST, miami hotel, and 500,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space. all within walking distance, life in brickell offers world-class cuisine, cultural attractions and exhibitions, dramatic architectural sights, and premier shopping from international and local brands within an open-air mega-mall — all spread across nine acres of carefully planned public grounds. the urban oasis reflects the vibrant and diverse culture of miami, while the development’s distinctive architectural features have become a unique part of the city skyline.
arrive in style, at REACH
the vision for brickell city centre has been artfully devised and developed by swire properties, one of south florida’s leading international developers of urban office, hotel and condominium properties. known for its master‐planned development of the island of brickell key in downtown miami, swire is continuing to mold the miami skyline through the evolution and development of brickell city centre. since the project’s inception, swire has been driven by the mission to ensure that residents, visitors, businesses and travelers all engage with the destination in synergy, and that it becomes a true architectural symbol for the area.
REACH’s interiors have been crafted by richardson sadeki to extend the living space into the public areas
contributing to a sense of community, and fostering new neighborhood life in brickell, are the luxury condominium towers, REACH and RISE. modern-living enthusiasts with an eye for design and an appetite for urban experiences will find REACH and RISE the ideal place to call home. residents can enjoy the unrivaled work, live, play lifestyle that the urban living concept offers. the pair of 43-story buildings — artfully integrated into brickell city centre — have been envisioned by internationally acclaimed firm arquitectonica, with interiors and amenity spaces led by celebrated design studio, richardson sadeki.

REACH and RISE each comprise 373 luxury condominiums, with an exclusive collection of seven penthouse residences. floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open out to stunning city-view terraces accessible from living areas and bedrooms. residents and their guests are welcomed into warm and inviting interior spaces, and can enjoy a host of extraordinary amenity areas — both indoor and out.
‘we wanted to bring a surprise element to each room at REACH and RISE by utilizing rustic textures and warm tones within a very modern design,’ said heidar sadeki, founder and creative director of richardson sadeki design firm. ‘it was very important to us to extend the living space into the public areas of the building to make residents feel at home at every point of the building.’

entering the lobbies at REACH and RISE induces a strong sense of warmth and welcome. a vast open space with high ceilings, the interior scheme of the lobby blends both formal and informal gestures to create a relaxed point-of-entry into the site. above, on the concierge level, guests and residents encounter the library lounge, a comfortable and richly textured space that features a curated selection of books, board games and furniture. adjacent, an indoor-outdoor tea lounge is characterized by a pickled oak ceiling, taupe back painted glass and american walnut walls.
the hammam spa at REACH allows residents to relax with friends and family
from the tea lounge, residents have direct access to the heated pool and spa, cafe and amenity deck — its own oasis in the city. the expansive half-acre amenity deck is lushly landscaped as a tropical garden, and includes barbecue grills, outdoor fitness areas, a tech-savvy children’s play area separated by glass, and ample spaces to bask in the miami sun.
the amenities on-site continue with an exclusive spa, shared hammam, dipping pools, showers, treatment rooms, a blow-out bar, and a mani-pedi station. a spacious fitness center offers individual workout studios, with a calendar of classes, and a state-of-the-art machine room. meanwhile, a few floors up, residents can book out the entertaining suite for large parties, which is designed and furnished to the level of a private residence.

exclusively for RISE, swire properties tapped award-winning interior designer steven gurowitz of NOW by steven G. to exclusively design a collection of ten residences.
gurowitz carefully outfitted each residence within RISE with every kind of buyer in mind, simultaneously speaking to the lifestyle of living atop a mixed-used mega complex like BCC. whether for an art lover, a retro devotee, or a minimalist, the expansive collection includes an array of one-to-three-bedroom floor plans. units feature convertible dens, open-floor kitchens, expansive living rooms, massive bedrooms and bathrooms, walk-in closets, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, and large wrap-around balconies that offer sweeping city and water views.
RISE comprises 373 luxury condominiums
‘to target our well-traveled clientele from latin america, europe and the northeast, we collaborated with steven gurowitz to deliver this eclectic mix of furnished units,’ said maile aguila, senior vice president of residential sales for swire properties — and a major force in the development of brickell city centre as it stands today. ‘the upscale collection was designed to elevate the new urban lifestyle that brickell city centre offers, with sweeping city and water views, as well as proximity to an expansive retail center with 120 storefronts and four levels of unparalleled shopping, dining and entertainment venues.’

connectivity is a value deeply important to swire properties, and brickell city centre is a strong embodiment of this principle. creating an urban core, REACH and RISE are linked to BCC’s 500,000 square foot luxury shopping hub. spanning over three city blocks and visually uniting the area is the climate ribbon, one of the industry’s most innovative environmental features. the elevated trellis — composed of a steel, fabric and a continuous glass surface — protects visitors from inclement weather, captures sea breezes to regulate air flow and temperature, recycles rainwater for reuse, and allows visitors to enjoy natural light in an open-air experience.
residents at RISE can enjoy use of an exclusive spa with a hammam, dipping pools, showers and steam
retail reaches new heights at brickell city centre. across four levels of luxury, visitors can discover shopping destinations such as cult beauty brand aesop, parisian scent-setter diptyque, home decor haven nest casa, famed apothecary santa maria novella, luxury mega-label saks fifth avenue, and the first US outpost of the sumptuous soft goods store, society limonta.

whether it be sushi, steaks, farm-to-table, vegan, sweet or caffeinated, brickell city centre offers a dining experience for whatever cuisine you’re feeling. the recently-opened la centrale features 14 different italian eateries, cafes, and shopping options spanning three levels and ranging from grab-and-go food, to casual dining, markets and upscale sit-down restaurants. also don’t miss sugar, a tropical paradise of botanical life and beautiful people perched atop EAST, miami that serves up asian-inspired tapas.
RISE features a half-acre amenity deck with tropical gardens, BBQs, outdoor fitness areas and children’s play areas
art and culture also play a significant role in shaping life in downtown miami, which lies a short (and free!) metro ride away from the pérez art museum. during miami art week, CASACOR miami presented a stunning exhibition at 700 brickell avenue. the 15-day experiential urban living show allowed visitors to engage with innovative design ideas that may apply to their own living spaces. across two floors, visitors encountered a variety of micro-environments — ranging from technology, to modernism, to naturalism. while the theme of urban oasis set the overall tone for CASACOR miami, the exhibition appealed to a wide range of tastes, with artists and designers featured in more than 20 spaces across over 25,000 feet of prime brickell location.

meanwhile, BCC also hosted FREE!, an alternative, non-commercial contemporary art fair that brought together some of the world’s most recognized and pioneering artists. FREE! investigated nominal concepts of race, gender, nationality, sexuality, and religion through experiential and participatory installations, video and performance. the artists explored the notions of borders and divisions — both physical and ideological. FREE! engaged with public spaces in the shopping center, with each activation addressing ideas of healing, empathy and connectivity, to inspire, reflect and encourage participation from the public.
