Miami, FL…November 20, 2018…Award-winning Architect, Jo Palma sets sights on his first design project in Miami. Plans for The Basel Miami, a new Downtown Miami mixed-used, high rise development are underway and Sean McCormick, Project Developer is seeking a Joint Venture Partner and Signature Luxury Hotel Brand.

The Basel Miami (www.thebaselmiami.com) is proposed to be situated at 205 SW 3rd Street, in an Opportunity Zone directly across the street from the recently approved, Adler Group Miami Riverside Center (currently the City of Miami Administration Building.)

Inspired by and fusing modern art and architecture, the $100,000,000, 36-story 234,000 square foot tower will become a new icon within the Miami skyline.  Its uses redefine how a modern art exhibition venue, artists and their studios, hospitality and lifestyle marry into one address.  The base of the tower will introduce a Modern Art Gallery with artist studios, offices immediately above it, a boutique hotel and private residences at its upper floors.  Both the tower’s plan and slipping volumes optimize prominent views to the city surrounded with an unprecedented presence and experience in Miami.

McCormick feels that PALMA+PARTNERS will lead Miami into a new era of cutting-edge global and sustainable design that will usher in the future of Downtown Miami.

“We don’t want to boast about the next tallest building in Miami,” states McCormick. “We want to build a signature structure of iconic design that relates to the Miami of today.”

Jo Palma is the Founder and Design Partner of PALMA+PARTNERS. With built work on five continents, including some of the world’s largest sustainable mega buildings, Jo oversees design of all projects working closely with the project teams to assure the original design intent and project vision are achieved through project completion. Over the course of his career, Palma has been published in international architecture journals such as Casabella, Domus, A+U, and Architect Magazine. His work has won over 30 design awards, including three Progressive Architecture Awards. He speaks regularly at industry conferences and participates on numerous design committee panels.

“We believe in “evolutionary architecture” which places our planet’s well-being first while providing our clients economically viable solutions within the built environment,” comments Palma. “Today, it’s no longer just about a building but rather about how it enriches communities through resilience and social wellbeing. The Basel in Miami encompasses all these things and we are very proud to be part of it.”

The Basel Miami will be located at 205 SW 3rd Street, Miami, FL 33130. For more information, visit: www.thebaselmiami.com or call/email Sean McCormick at 305.206.4734 or sjm@mccormickllp.com.
