Naftali Group has assembled a world-class collaboration between Miami-based architecture firm Arquitectonica and New York City-based interior design firm Rockwell Group, to create a chic and timeless design aesthetic for the tower. JEM Private Residences draws inspiration from the ocean landscape, with its wave-like architecture and wraparound terraces on each floor which seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living. Wood accents and lush greenery convey a warm and inviting environment, establishing a serene oasis within the vibrant urban setting. Fort Lauderdale-based ESDA is at the helm of the tower ’s landscape architecture, elevating the ambiance of the development.
“Miami Worldcenter is a highly sought-after destination, characterized by a dynamic energy that sets it apart from any other city in the world. JEM Private Residences will elevate the quality of product offered within the walkable neighborhood and position residents at the center of Miami’s premier offerings in dining, entertainment, arts and culture,” said Naftali.
OneWorld Properties has been selected as the exclusive sales and marketing brokerage for JEM Private Residences, with residences starting from the $540,000s. The development consists of 259 units ranging from studios to four-bedroom options and a collection of 10 penthouses at the crown of the tower, some of which will feature private outdoor hot tubs. Naftali Group strategically positioned the private residences to begin at the 43rd floor to maximize breathtaking views of the Miami skyline, Biscayne Bay and Atlantic Ocean.
“Our team is excited about being involved in the continued growth of Downtown Miami and its transformation into a global city,” says Peggy Olin, CEO of OneWorld Properties. “JEM Private Residences will not only provide an unparalleled range of amenities but will also benefit from its prime location within Miami Worldcenter, making them an unbeatable choice for future residents.”
