In Miami, billion-dollar developments are on the rise. Brickell City Centre may not be slated for completion until this fall, but the opening of its central high-rise hotel—East, Miami—is the giant property’s first sign of life. Today we show the first images of this luxury hotel! Take a look!
The 40-floor hotel, designed by Miami-based firm Arquitectonica (exteriors) and New York-based Clodagh Design (interiors), flaunts an ethereal gray-and-blue palette throughout, from the 20,000-square-foot poolscape to the slate-colored interiors. Inside, charcoal-gray wood floors, floor-to-ceiling views, and furnished king-size balconies come standard, while 89 residential suites boast periwinkle crushed velvet sectionals, fully equipped kitchens, and laundry services for the ultramodern pied-à-terre.
There may be no shortage of hotels making colorful splashes on Miami’s cityscape, but East, Miami’s blend of awe-inspiring construction and fine-tuned tranquillity is bound to make waves this summer.
Like East, the hotel’s tentpole restaurant brings its own international pedigree: Quinto La Huella is the first spin-off of Uruguay’s prized beachside grill Parador La Huella, which made S.Pellegrino and Aqua Panna’s list of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2015.
While the sleek, 9,700-square-foot proxy, designed by Los Angeles–based Studio Collective, adds some urban polish to Parador’s beachy vibes, the parilla (a 20-seat, Benihana-style wood-fire grill that yields a distinct smoky finish)—and several toques plucked from South America including executive chef Nano Crespo (who collaborated with Parador’s chef Alejandro Morales on the menu)—promise distinctly original flavors among Miami’s fusion-heavy fare.
