Foster and Partners introduce a new quality to the Miami skyline
A new addition to five of Miami’s highest buildings by Foster and Partners will be introduced after the height regulations were updated. The Waterfront towers received an official approval from the Miami Federal Aviation administration as previously the regulations of height had placed limits in Miami in order to respect the position of the airport.
The Foster Waterfront twin towers will change the Miami skyline and also increase the accessibility of the pedestrians to the Miami coast. Forming an exquisite relation with the street, the towers will also include an impressive unique arcade.
The core reason behind the architecture of the tower is to fulfill the people needs. Thus providing a good quality natural light, bracing that endure hurricanes, 660 residential apartments, underground car parking and most importantly providing public spaces at the ground level that will contain restaurants, art galleries, and greenery.
Norman Foster, Chairman, and Founder, Foster + Partners, describes this new quality as “the base of the building continues the axis of SE 12th Street, drawing life back to the bay. It is a civic response to the city’s enlightened vision, and will make an important contribution to Miami’s public spaces.”
