In a milestone for Downtown Miami’s resurgent residential market, the first condo planned for Brickell Avenue since the recession has topped off construction at 44 stories. The Bond on Brickell, a 328-unit luxury tower under development by Rilea Group and MDR Toledo, is located at 1080 Brickell Avenue in the heart of Miami’s Brickell Financial District. The project, slated for delivery in the first quarter of 2016, is already nearly sold out, with 97 percent of the building’s condo units under contract.

"We launched The Bond on Brickell at the beginning of Miami’s current development cycle because we were bullish on the Miami economy, the Brickell brand, and the development and sales team we assembled," said Diego Ojeda, vice president of Rilea Group. "Buyers from more than 25 countries around the world responded by purchasing nearly all of the available units more than six months before delivery."

The Bond marks the latest collaboration between Rilea Group, Coastal Construction, a South Florida Chapter-AGC member, and leading Miami architecture firm Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW). The three firms previously teamed up in the successful development of the nearby 1450 Brickell office tower as well as the International Finance Bank headquarters near Coral Gables. 

"We could not have reached this milestone without the dedication and tenacity of our tremendous team," said Tom Murphy, Jr. chairman and CEO of Coastal Construction Group.  "It continues to be a pleasure to work with Alan Ojeda and his team, the entire MDR Toledo group and Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates. The Bond is a shining testament to their vision and a beautiful addition to the Brickell skyline. With the topping off of the tower, we are poised to begin the next exciting step – the grand opening phase."

Architecturally conceived by NBWW, The Bond will feature one, two and three-bedroom condos, as well as exclusive lofts and penthouses, combining luxury amenities, fashionable art and design, chic interiors, and an unparalleled location on Brickell Avenue. NBWW designed the building to conform to the midblock characteristics of the site, filling in the void in the sky and creating "living blocks" that are outlined within the mass of the building. The building’s stylish interior and exterior spaces, designed by Mexico’s Loguer Design, will include hand-stitched leather and suede walls and classic tufted sofas, to pinstriped granite floors and custom-designed water features. 

"We designed The Bond to be an icon in the Brickell skyline," said Igor Reyes, partner at Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW). "As an urban gesture, the tower fulfills on many levels, contributing to a flourishing neighborhood that is quickly becoming extraordinarily dense."

Building amenities will include a resort-style amenity deck, home to a T-shaped zero edge pool overlooking the city, a stylish library, a children’s learning center and a great room complete with a sitting area, billiards table, wet bar and kitchen. Additional features include private cabanas with furnished summer kitchens, a large fire pit, and a "grotto-inspired" Jacuzzi area. Nearby, The Bond’s fitness center and spa complex will offer high-end exercise equipment, floor-to-ceiling windows, and men’s and women’s steam rooms and saunas.

Residences will include floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors, spacious glass-balcony terraces, and double door entry walk-in closets. All units will be fitted with top-of-the-line stainless steel Bosch® appliances; European styled cabinetry; Silestone® countertops, backsplashes and vanities; and Porcelanosa® designer bathroom faucets. Lifestyle kitchens will include breakfast bars that open up to living and dining areas for entertaining purposes. Spa-inspired bathrooms will include luxury porcelain flooring, with double sink vanities and frameless glass enclosures in select master bath units. 

Residents and visitors will access the building via entrances on Brickell Avenue and SE 1st Avenue. Multiple public transit options such as the Metromover and Downtown trolley, luxury hotels, and retail outlets are just steps away, including The Shops at Mary Brickell Village and Brickell City Centre, which will bring high-end shopping to the area when it opens in 2016.

The Bond on Brickell is Miami’s newest condominium to be developed on Brickell Avenue. Rilea Group’s 44-story luxury tower will be home to 328 residences that are attracting residents from throughout the Americas and around the world. Enjoying a premium location in Miami’s urban core and sporting fashion-forward design elements, The Bond on Brickell introduces a new standard of luxury to the Brickell Financial District.
