Spanish architect Rafael Moneo, winner of the Pritzker Prize in 1996, has been selected to design Apeiron, a condominum and hotel project at the Jockey Club in North Miami.
Moneo has over 50 years of architectural experience. This will be his first project in South Florida and his first mixed-use residential/hotel project in the United States.
"One of the first things to strike me about the chance to build at Apeiron was the opportunity to design not just with the architecture, but with the gardens, with the marina and with the views," Moneo said. "I think what will distinguish the buildings there is the way they are integrated with an experience enriched by all these ingredients."
The Apeiron at the Jockey Club will include 240 residential units, a 90-room boutique hotel, new yacht marina, five-acre health and wellness facility.
Meanwhile, residents of the Jockey Club filed suit against Apeiron developers earlier this month, reports the Real Deal, trying to stop the development from moving forward.
