A Visionary Building
When Multiplan founder José Issac Peres decided it was time to return to Miami, he would settle for nothing less than a legacy project that would lay the foundation for a larger real estate platform in the city he has loved since he first built residential Il Villaggio two decades ago. “In the same way that Il Villaggio was a landmark project in the ‘90’s, changing the landscape of Ocean Drive, we wanted 57 Ocean to be an iconic building on Iconic Millionaire’s Row,” says Mr. Peres.
He envisioned a quiet, reserved, contemporary building that emphasized healthy living, right on the Atlantic. The challenge was to locate a piece of land that highlighted the city’s best assets: access to major traffic arteries, direct placement on the beach, and enough space to offer owners numerous ways to live a full and well-balanced life.
57 Ocean catalyzed that vision on a 220-foot oceanfront site, bringing to life a one-of-a-kind boutique tower that is connected to nature in meaningful ways—through its use of natural materials, elegant architecture, intelligent design, indigenous landscaping and the most coveted amenity in the world: direct access to the ocean.
