Art-driven ‘Eve at the District’

The mixed-use building is named after an art piece

Eve at the District, named after an art piece (“Eve”) by Hawaii-based artist Anna Sweet which is featured prominently in the lobby, is scheduled to host its grand opening event in December, after recently injecting 195 luxury rental units and over 61,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space in an area nestled between Midtown Miami and the Design District.

Located at 3635 Northeast 1st Avenue, the mixed-use development by Mack Real Estate Group employed Stantec for architecture and design services.

“I met Anna Sweet at the popular Spectrum Miami art show in 2014 and immediately knew that Eve was perfect for District 36,” says Susan LaFleur, director of hospitality and residential interiors of Stantec’s Miami Office. “Our design team was seeking a ‘wow factor’ that would immediately engage and intrigue the guest and set the sensual tone of the space. Eve did that so wonderfully that naming the project after her was obligatory.”

Two additional Sweet pieces will be displayed in Eve at the District’s public spaces, with a Hawaiian surf angel titled “Nalu Anela” in the club room and a deep sea jelly fish called “Narcissus Jelly” in the library.

Sweet is based in Hawaii, with her work focused on underwater images of women.
