The award-winning architecture and design firm ADD Inc, now with Stantec, has been retained by developers, MREG NE36, to undertake the architecture and interior design of District 36, a mixed-use residential building that will serve to connect the Miami neighborhoods of Midtown and the Miami Design District, the company says in a news release.
The 19-story tower, located at 3635 NE 1st Ave., will feature 195 rental apartments, 61,500 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space on the first and second levels, four floors of enclosed parking, and an amenities and pool deck. The retail space on the building’s ground level will be designed with up-lit storefronts to encourage pedestrian flow and link these two highly active areas of the city.
“District 36’s ideal location will serve to unite two of Miami’s most dynamic neighborhoods,” said architect Jonathan Cardello, senior principal, ADD Inc, now with Stantec. “We are extremely pleased to be part of such an exciting new venture.”
The Design District and the eclectic Wynwood Arts District inspired the city-chic interior design concept of the building. Urban elements will be combined with modern design to create a stylish, yet sophisticated environment. The lobby’s bold interiors will feature contrasting elegant cream and black stones and vibrant art installations behind the reception desk to create a dramatic entrance. Design details such as metal chains, custom color rugs, stone patterned walls, glistening custom art and sleek pendants add to the city-chic design. This design concept is seamlessly woven into the building interiors, amenity floor and pool deck.
The project is estimated to begin construction in May 2015 and is expected to be completed by October 2016.
ADD Inc, now with Stantec, a recognized national leader for the architecture and design of luxury residential buildings, is working on other prominent residential projects throughout South Florida, Tampa, St. Petersburg and in Dallas, Texas.
