Eighty Seven Park, the first residential building designed by Renzo Piano in the United States, is an expression of perfect tension between the earth and the sky. It is located at the limit of the city of Miami Beach, in the north part of North Shore Open Space Park along Collins Avenue. Characterized by a fluid design that combines balanced architecture, design and a natural landscape, the project is the result of the collaboration between Renzo Piano Building Workshop and Stantec Architecture (Miami), developed by Terra + Bizzi & Partners Development.
The main idea of the project is to enhance the presence of the green space in the area of North Shore Park, by extending the nature to 87th Terrace at the northern limit of the architectural site.
Renzo Piano intends to increase permeability between the city and the beach, by different solutions as a transparent ground floor maintains sightlines from Collins Avenue towards the beach, ocean, and the surrounding park.
The structure is 200 feet tall and comprises three different areas: a lobby with an amenities space on the ground floor inside the park, a residential tower with 70 apartments and a solarium. Brightness and transparency are the central theme.
