Blog: Brickell Flatiron: Year in Review


This year, Brickell Flatiron has been making waves across the Miami real estate market, with major sales testifying to the building’s elevation of what it means to live in luxury in Miami. Developer Ugo Columbo put the last penthouse up for sale after having sold 98% of the units in the building. The sale earned its own article in dwell, which captured the impressive details of the space: “Now listed for $9.4 million, the expansive 2-story duplex penthouse spans over 4,600 square feet atop Brickell Flatiron’s 62nd floor and comes completely built-out and designed by Barcelona-born architect Alexis Cogul Lleonart of Miami-based Doo Architecture with beautifully curated accessories by Nest Casa. The fully furnished ‘townhome in the sky’ features 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a vast 20-foot double height living area enveloped by panoramic cityscape and water views.”
The article also hails Alexis Cogul Lleonart’s interior design, which works seamlessly with Columbo’s vision for a complete Italian-inspired living experience, using only the finest materials available. It notes striking features like louvered walls, a custom glass staircase, and Venetian plaster, and it nods to Brickell Flatiron’s remarkable art collection, which includes work by Julian Schnabel, Carlos Battaglia, and Marco Glaviano.
The Miami Herald has also taken notice of these remarkable sales of unprecedented homes, with an article whose title says it all: “Penthouse living in Miami is hot. One tower closed on $31.62M in sales since March.” The article quotes Vanessa Grout, who is in charge of sales and marketing for Brickell Flatiron, and points to new buying trends that have led to an impressive catalog of purchases for the year: “The 7,856-square-foot unit 6201 brought $13.2 million from Chicago-based marine executive Jake Vogel; it features six bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths. Also sold were the 5,453-square-foot unit 6202 for $11.2 million (four bedrooms, six-and-a-half baths); 3,626-square-foot duplex No. 6205 for $4.9 million (four bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths); and 2,726-square-foot unit 6204 for $2.32 million (four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths).”
Alyssa Mammano dedicated a piece in duPont Registry to the sale of the $11.2 million penthouse and focused on the Italian design ethos at the building’s core: “Italian influences are prevalent in Brickell Flatiron, with the exterior curvatures clad in walls of glass, while imported high-end materials adorn the interiors. The concept of fluidity between interior and exterior spaces is that of Italian interior architect Massimo Iosa Ghini.” Brickell Flatiron’s stellar year is a testament to its reach as a global example of the perfect marriage of luxury and design and to its encapsulation of what we see and feel when we dream of living in Miami.
