Santiago Vanegas, president of Habitat Group, sees the modern building as a milestone for his company engaged in five other projects west of Brickell. The first of the three mixed-use towers is fully sold.


Santiago Vanegas, president of Habitat Group, presided over the construction commencement ceremony for the first tower of the Smart Brickell building complex that will be built over the next 24 months at 229 SW and 9th Street in Miami.

When taking the floor, Vanegas thanked the entire team that has participated in the creation and planning of the project of more than 100 million dollars of investment, consisting of three mixed-use towers, with two and three-bedroom smart apartments.
The young businessman commented that 100% of the first tower has been sold. Where 50 units will be located in the upper part and 50 hotel rooms in the first levels.

“The construction project has been fulfilling its license and listing cycles. We have defined the construction prices. We have been signing with contractors and subcontractors. And finally we got the foundation permit. Now we are at the moment of starting construction, ”he explained exclusively to DIARIO LAS AMERICAS.

Smart Brickell is marketed by Cervera Real Estate and is being sold fully furnished.

For its part, the interior design and the furniture of the units were designed by Arquitectónica, an icon of modern design, which has created comfortable and harmonious spaces within the property.

The mixed-use complex will have 170 residences and 150 hotel rooms.

The apartments sell for between $ 290,000 and $ 490,000, and their sizes range from 558 to 878 square feet.

“I think it has been very well received by the market, since it meets the needs requested by investors and the current owners of the units. Furthermore, it achieves the harmony of three key elements: flexible use, design and technology ”.

The apartments will be equipped with smart systems that will control energy efficiency, allow air conditioners to be controlled remotely, turn lights on and off, and raise and lower blinds. Each unit will be provided with an Alexa personal assistant.

This is a project considered anti-cycle, as it will be the only building to be completed in the area throughout 2021. Almost a year after the construction boom that shook Brickell. For this reason “the  brokers , who know the market well, have trusted the building,” said Vanegas.

“For us, Smart Brickell marks a milestone. We have seven other executions in a row to this one. Six in this same area and another in areas of the Miami River ”. The latter is a 34-unit rental building “known as East River Living that we will deliver in 10 months,” he concluded.
