PRESS RELEASE: Oppenheim Architecture unveils design for “Emerald” office building in Miami Gardens

29 November 2016

Oppenheim Architecture, the award-winning architecture, interior design and planning firm, today unveiled its design for Emerald, a planned 6-story, Class “A” office complex to be located at 2655 N.E 186th Terrace in Miami, Florida. Oppenheim was selected to design the 120,000 SF property by 2655 Developers LLC, led by Boris Fincheltub and Eduardo Halfen. Plans are currently in the process of being permitted by the Miami-Dade County Building Department. The innovative design is the latest effort by Chad Oppenheim, Principal and Lead Designer of Oppenheim Architecture, in a career dedicated to blurring the boundaries between traditional and contemporary notions of place.

Unique in its architectural form, Emerald’s bold design articulates an unmistakably distinct, sophisticated timelessness that sets it apart from surrounding structures, while addressing local appetites for modernism and luxury. Two intersecting, urban-scale volumes mark the building’s entry – each form cantilevering towards the southeast, optimizing views of the Aventura-area commercial landscape across Biscayne Boulevard. The exterior, clad in glass, is designed to appear light and dematerialize with its reflection of the sky. Emerald’s contemporary, iconic structure will serve as a lasting architectural inspiration to the area and an unequivocal gem of its commercial real estate market.

The concept of Emerald was to create an upscale, versatile office environment that would allow for end-user flexibility and evoke the feeling of open space via large, strategically arranged volumes. When complete, the building’s 120,000 GSF will feature approximately 40,000 SF of salable office space (58 offices, 6 conference rooms and 2 balconies), including units ranging from 600 to 1,200 SF with uninterrupted views; a rooftop garden terrace and conference room, allowing owners to diversify their office environment and enjoy northwest views of Miami under a canopy of trees; and structured garage parking for 132 cars.
