Joining the bombastic ranks of condos developed by Donald Trump and a muffler-shaped tower designed by Porsche, master swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron have designed a condo tower for Sunny Isles Beach. Oh boy, who'd have thunk "Herzog & de Meuron" and "Sunny Isles condo tower" would ever be in the same sentence together? Well, people, they are. It's called Jade 4 and exMiami has been making the tower's preliminary plans public at a suspenseful drip. Two elevations came yesterday, and today - surprise! - comes the site plan and plans of the residential floors.
Downstairs, lap pool and lagoon pool flank a beach grill and what looks like a grand staircase. Various club rooms and lounges fill the level. Formulaically for Sunny Isles Beach, a grand entry drive shows the car is king. Upstairs, the building is a parallelogram that angles oceanfront apartments to the southern sun. Units go from 1 bedroom to 6, and the penthouse is a massive Bauhausian estate, pretty much a full-on Villa Savoye, way up in the sky.
