Palm Tree-Inspired Solitair Tower Breaks Ground in Brickell

New, 4 comments

Last week Solitair, a vertiginous new all-rental rental high-rise soon to shoot up in Brickell courtesy of developers, ZOM and AIG Global Real Estate, broke ground. The ADD Inc.-designed, 50-story tower will include 438 residential rental apartments and over 7,500 square feet of ground-level retail. A recent press release mentions that the building's architecture is inspired by the "Majule palm tree" (think they meant the Medjool Palm, which isn't a native, just FYI). Solitair's jagged façade accurately resembles the palm's patterned trunk, and will stand out in the Brickell skyline. The interiors, however, which supposedly draw from the same concept, are "urban, cool," and grey: not very palm-like or tropical. Since Solitair will neighbor the highly-anticipated Brickell City Centre, you can bet apartments will be an easy sell. Solitair's opening is planned for late 2017.—Alexandra J Miller
