Award-winning ‘starchitect’ Renzo Piano, the name behind projects like the Shard in London and Pompidou Centre in Paris, is a man on the move. Not only has he just revealed plans to replace the 200-metre section of the 1960s Morandi motorway bridge which collapsed in Genoa, the Italian architect has also announced his first residential project in the United States.
Called Eighty Seven Park, the project comes in the form of 66 residences floating atop two lush parks, infusing Central Park living into North Beach for the first time ever. The result? A botanical sanctuary with uninterrupted ocean views.
The project was created in close collaboration with Rena Dumas’ Architecture Interieure (RDAI) in Paris, who is recognised around the world for their work with Hermes and other fashion brands, as well as landscape firm West 8 in Rotterdam.
The residences feature a beautiful colour palette, with materials collected from the location site — such as pebbles, shells, leaves, and seagrass, highlighted throughout the space. The residences, which range in size from one to five bedrooms, will be home to an expansive balcony separated by two large glass doors.
Each residence will offer expansive oblong floor plans, massive outdoor wrap-around balconies, ten-foot ceilings, and unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean, Miami skyline, and the nearby scenic stretch of North Shore Open Space, as well as the development’s own two-acre private park.
