June 11, 2014 |
Plaza Construction has started construction on two more ultra-luxury condominiums for The Related Group. Included are the $187 million One Ocean, in South Beach, designed by Enrique Norten of Ten Arquitectos, along with The Sieger Suarez Architectural Partnership, as the executive Architect, and the $88 million Marea condominiums, also in South Beach, designed by The Sieger Suarez Architectural Partnership.
Totaling $498 million in development costs, Plaza’s four projects now under way for The Related Group also include the new $118 million, 42-story Icon Bay waterfront condominium designed by Arquitectonica and located in the heart of Miami’s Biscayne Corridor, and the $105 million, 42-story Millecento Residences by Pininfarina, located in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood and designed by architect Carlos Ott.
Slated for completion in 2015, both the seven-story, 275,141 square foot One Ocean and six-story, 190,654 square foot Marea will offer landscapes by Enzo Enea and interiors by Yabu Pushelberg.  
One Ocean, located at the tip of South Beach in the exclusive South of Fifth neighborhood, offers sinuous glass curves and seductive interiors to separate its 46 residences and four Ocean Villas apart from any other. Works of art by José Bedia, Michele Oka Doner and Cuttica will create an imaginative space as part of One Ocean’s professionally curated collection of contemporary art.
Marea, also in the South of Fifth neighborhood, will also combine art and design within an atmosphere of tranquility. Complementing its 30 residences, commissioned art installations by Riccardo De Marchi and Markus Linnenbrink will transform its private lobby into an exclusive gallery.
