A grand water feature in front of the signature tower will act as a stunning note of welcome to South Beach as well as announce the importance of water to this landmark project.
Major water elements are integral to plans for this gateway development. Complementing the iconic residential tower will be a richly landscaped park of 3.25 acres encompassing three related water areas:
Tropical habitats in the park, including mangrove and Cyprus forests, will reflect the environmental conditions of South Florida and be available for students to analyze.
The design of the 500-600 Alton project is practical as well as attractive. The water features will hold up to 4 million gallons of water and serve as an expandable reservoir to collect floodwaters that sometimes challenge South Beach. Waters will be filtered biologically and cleansed water can be stored or discharged to the Bay.
The architectural firm heading the project, Perkins+Will, with offices worldwide, is a preeminent sustainable design group known for innovative research, design tools, and expertise. For this project, a green roof along Sixth Street will complement the progressive plans for floodwater treatment.
Present plans for 500-600 Alton call for retail space on the ground levels. Above, each floor will be dedicated to four expansive residences designed to take in spectacular views of Downtown Miami, Biscayne Bay, the barrier islands and the Atlantic. The hand of Perkins+Will will be seen throughout the ultra-modern design.
Amenities expected of 21st-century luxury condominium residences will not disappoint at 500-600 Alton. Children and adults will enjoy battery-operated boats on the lake. Further recreational opportunities will be enhanced by the property's connection to the Baywalk and the beach walk. Generous parking accommodations will be provided for the 200 residential units. The expansion of public transportation to the site is expected in the near future.
One of the earliest areas of development in the Miami area, South Beach is today one of its most vital neighborhoods, catering to an international clientele with discriminating tastes. Located between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic, its famed beaches are the front yard of a significant number of Art Deco architectural treasures. This barrier island is an excellent base for exploring the cosmopolitan cultural and recreational attractions of the Miami area.
Now is the time to consider your future in the future of South Beach's luxury condominium market. 500-600 Alton should be high on your list of state-of-the-art options. In the South of Fifth neighborhood, you should also check out the Icon.
