Centro is a residential tower in the heart of Downtown Miami. The talent behind the project is Newgard Development Group in collaboration with award-winning Swiss designer Yves Béhar, the founder and principal designer of Fuseproject, an industrial design and brand development firm. Newgard is a firm known for its forward-thinking approach to buildings, attention to detail, and responsible development.
Centro will be a modern urban oasis for residents who want to live, play, and work in the dynamic Downtown Miami district. Centro will be a contemporary tower of stylish elegance, offering residents a supreme location, style, and value. Centro has attracted great interest because of its trendy loft-style homes. This 37-floor building will have 352 1-and-2-bedroom apartments.
Centro is a sustainable and environmentally conscious building that will be the first dedicated Car2Go hub in Miami. It is also pet-friendly and perfectly situated in the center of Miami.
The new tower at 151 Southeast 1st Street is well situated in the heart of Downtown Miami, just blocks from Brickell and Biscayne Bay. Downtown Miami is perfect for the working professional who desires an urban lifestyle. The area offers shopping, culture and entertainment venues, fantastic restaurants, bars, and access to public transportation on the Metromover and Metrorail. The area is also closely situated to Miami International Airport and the Port Miami Cruise Terminal.
Downtown Miami contains the grand American Airlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat and host to several concerts and events throughout the year. Walking distance from the arena is Museum Park – a 30-acre cultural complex overlooking Biscayne Bay. Venues here include the newly constructed Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), and soon-to-be the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, which is set to be completed by summer 2016.
Design and Features
The loft-style homes at Centro are designed to have open-concept floor plans that allow residents to define their own living spaces the way they like. Residences range from 500 to 1,100 square feet in size, with amazing views of the Downtown Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay in select units.
Each apartment will feature dramatic 10-foot exposed ceilings, impact-resistant and noise-reducing windows, stainless steel energy efficient appliances, modern light fixtures, and large closets. To complete the industrial look, floors will be finished concrete.
Other design elements include a Swarovski amplified light installation in the main lobby, as well as a black metal staircase in the double level Sky lounge.
