One Soundscape Park
Shvo Secures Historic Preservation Board Approval for One Soundscape Park, First Peter Marino Designed Office Building in Miami Beach
SHVO, the culture-defining real estate development and investment firm, is pleased to welcome the Historic Preservation Board's approval for One Soundscape Park, a new ultra-luxury office property at 1665-1667 Washington Avenue in Miami Beach.
In a meeting held today, the Historic Preservation Board (HPB) reviewed plans for the contemporary high-design and high-performance property designed by Peter Marino in collaboration with Kobi Karp Architects, with resounding support for the project from prominent community members including Jack Finglass, Former Historic Preservation Board Chair; Howard Herring, President and Chief Executive Officer of New World Symphony; Lyle Stern, President of Koniver Stern Group; as well as the Miami Design Preservation League and Lincoln Road Business Improvement District.
In announcing its approval, the HPB recognized SHVO's commitment to engaging Miami Beach's historic pedigree with One Soundscape Park, which will comprise 52,500 square feet of Class A commercial space featuring panoramic exposures of Soundscape Park, South Beach, and the Atlantic Ocean.
Embracing a front row Soundscape Park exposure, the building features a refined, hospitality-driven lobby and five floors of vibrant office space with private loggia terraces for informal gathering.
A deliberate contemporary nod to Art Deco rhythmic verticals, the striking façade is a composition of white vertical fins that vary in density and pitch lining floor-to-ceiling glazing, which also provide a sophisticated environmentally responsive solar shading device that maximizes internal daylight. The elegant contemporary design emphasizes a rigorous commitment to quality, sustainability and state-of-the-art infrastructure while showcasing signature unobstructed corner exposures, an amenitized roof terrace, on-site valet parking, a tailored service program, and an elegant, private porte-cochere arrival with vertical gardens.
Integral to the design, Peter Marino has created an interior tailored to optimize a tenant's working culture and operational needs with meticulous, specialty artisanal architectural finishes, building services, and lighting components. Commissioned art and furniture play a central role in the project with Peter Marino curated pieces defining the porte-cochere and lobby.
Michael Shvo, Chairman & CEO of SHVO, stated: "We are delighted to have secured the Historic Preservation Board's approval for One Soundscape Park, and grateful for the overwhelming support the project has received from a broad range of stakeholders, reinforcing our commitment to bringing world class design and architecture to Miami Beach."
Additional projects currently underway by SHVO in Miami Beach include the development of "The Alton" at 1656-1680 Alton Road, designed by internationally acclaimed Foster + Partners, and the redevelopment of the famed Raleigh Hotel and Residences, to be operated by Rosewood Hotel & Resorts, also being designed by Peter Marino. Kobi Karp Architects will reinforce both visions with local expertise.
SHVO is committed to high-performance and high-design commercial properties as demonstrated by additional portfolio assets Transamerica Pyramid Center in San Francisco, 711 Fifth Avenue and 530 Broadway in New York, and 333 South Wabash Avenue in Chicago.
