New York City–based developer KAR Properties has enlisted a number of award-winning architects and designers for its upcoming One River Point condominium development in the Miami River District. The community will feature two symmetrical residential towers designed by Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly; private landscape design by Sasaki, which has offices in the U.S. and China; kitchens, bathrooms, and lobbies by Italy's B&B Italia; and unit interior design services by Parisian designer Rémi Tessier and Indonesian hotelier Adrian Zecha, available on request. KAR Properties opened its sales gallery for One River Point in February and expects to break ground next year.

One River Point is Rafael Viñoly’s first and only building project in Miami. Viñoly specifically sought to differentiate the community’s design from anything else on Miami’s riverfront and created his concept with an eye for the surrounding natural and built environment. The 800-foot glass towers are connected between the 61st and 63rd levels by the Sky Club, a 50,000-square-foot members’ social club designed and curated by Zecha.

The glass towers will offer one- to four-bedroom condominium residences, along with 10 bespoke units: four penthouse units, four Sky Loft residences on the Sky Club level, and two Sky Villas on the top two levels of each tower. Each unit will feature outdoor spaces with views of the Miami River, Biscayne Bay, and Miami skyline.

Full building services and amenities will include two lobbies with 24-hour attendants, biometric security scanners, two pools, a fitness center, a spa and pet spa, and on-site art storage. The Sky Club will also offer a members-only restaurant, bar, and lounge, as well as a spa, salon, conference facilities, and a calendar of cultural events.

The towers are set in the center of a gated riverfront park designed and curated by the Sasaki design firm. The park’s green spaces aim to balance South Florida’s tropical aesthetic and ecology with clean, uncluttered design.

The green space features curated gardens, natural stone paving, a waterfront restaurant, and a landscaped sculpture park on the western side of the enclosure. An 85-foot waterfall connects an infinity pool above with a reflecting pool below, providing elemental harmony with the riverside nearby.

“Our goal was to achieve a transformative experience on entering the river park,” said Sasaki principal Isabel Zempel, who led the design team for the One River Point project, in a statement.

The Miami Riverwalk path connects One River Point to the city’s downtown, while the river itself provides residents with access to the bars, shops, restaurants, and activity taking place in the Miami Riviera, Downtown, and Miami Beach.

The surrounding Miami River District, once an industrial “working river” center, is in the process of transitioning into a residential and entertainment district. According to the Miami River Commission, the area has more than 10,000 proposed residential units, as well as three major hotels, 21 restaurants, an additional 20 proposed restaurants, 25 boatyards and a marina, and 16 historic sites.
