The Future of Miami

The Florida coast is known for lavish high-rise towers, yet rarely does one come around that not only reimagines luxury living, but dramatically reshapes the iconic Miami skyline. The Baccarat Residences is a striking, contemporary glass skyscraper that will stretch 75 stories tall when complete in 2026. Location is everything, of course, and the structure commands its own spotlight in a visible waterfront space at the entrance of Brickell Avenue where the Miami River meets Biscayne Bay.

The project is led by Miami’s Related Group in collaboration with GTS Partners and global architecture firm Arquitectonica. When it’s all said and done, Baccarat will have 316 tower residences as well as 28 riverfront flats and duplexes – plus eight penthouses covering the top three floors. The most exclusive upper penthouses set new standards for palatial living in the sky, boasting up to 9,074 square feet of indoor space with second-level rooftop decks that include private pools and summer kitchens.

All units on the 15th level and above are uniquely positioned to soak in sweeping, panoramic views of Miami. Each home sports an open-concept floor plan with 10-foot ceilings framed by energy-efficient wraparound windows. Sliding doors open up to expansive, eight-foot-deep terraces, offering plenty of room for outdoor lounge furniture and fresh air while entertaining guests. The glass enclosed design provides a unique, unobstructed feel of “floating on air” above South Florida’s largest city.

New York’s Meyer Davis Studio designed the kitchens with Italian cabinetry, stone countertops, waterfall-edge islands and high-end appliances from Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove. Master bedrooms have his-and-hers walk-in closets and spa-like bathrooms with enclosed rainfall showers and stand-alone soaking tubs. The air and water are purified with comfort and wellness in mind while the latest smart-home technology is on standby with the touch of a button. Enjoy convenience, privacy and security with key-activated elevators that open directly into the residence.

The property is managed by SH Hotels & Resorts, offering all the amenities and perks of a posh Miami vacation – and so much more. Bask in the sun on the 14th-floor deck with a zero-entry (gradual slope) pool, café, cabanas and shaded lounge chairs. Relax and recharge with a Hammam spa, world-class fitness center, game room, wine tasting cellar and theater-style movie screening room.

A lush private drive, designed by Swiss landscaper Enzo Enea, takes inspiration from the European countryside, leading to a bold, grand porte-cochère and lobby decorated with elegant chandeliers, artwork and Mid-Century Modern furniture. It’s an engaging environment to sip on drinks from a craft cocktail bar or unwind with dinner at Orangerie, an on-site restaurant.

Brickell is often described as the “Manhattan of the South” due to its role as Miami’s financial center with skyscrapers and cultural attractions. Spend time at shops and art galleries or soak in the sunshine with nearby parks and riverwalk trails. The dining scene mixes great food with an undeniable social energy, from the upscale Asian cuisine of Novikov to the fresh seafood at River Oyster Bar and chic combination of cocktails and rooftop views at Sugar.

The soft sand and clear blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean are just a short drive across the causeway. Baccarat residents are invited to enjoy beach access at 1 Hotel South Beach, a sister property by SH Hotels & Resorts.
