Ocean Drive recently sat down with Ugo Colombo to discuss his latest project, the 64-story Brickell Flatiron that will soar 700 feet, have a rooftop pool, spa, and fitness center, include artwork by Julian Schnabel, and will have an unobstructed 360-degree views over glistening Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami.

Marcelle Sussman Fischler begins by discussing Ugo Colombo’s CMC Group and his history of successes in Miami including Epic Residences & Hotel; the Bristol Tower on Brickell Avenue; the posh Santa Maria; Aventura’s chic Porto Vita; and The Collection, his seven-brand luxury automobile dealership.

Fischler asks Ugo Colombo about his ethos when conceptualizing a development, the influence of the Miami culture on design, and his thoughts on the supposed real estate bubble.  Fischler also specifically asks Colombo about his passion for Brickell Flatiron.

“I always thought what you see happening now [in Brickell] would eventually happen,” begins Colombo. “This is a little piece of New York inside Miami. You are in an area where you are walking distance to go to work, you have access to tons of restaurants, you have access now to department stores and a bit of retail within a few blocks. You have the best restaurants, all moving to this area. You have access to the Metrorail, and you have access to the offices in the Financial District.”

In a recent Miami Herald piece, Ugo Colombo explains why the designs of his projects are all about the details.

“The Italian-born developer oversees nearly every inch of his projects,” the article begins “from the intricate mosaics at the Collection, a luxury car dealership in Coral Gables, to the porthole-shaped windows that adorn Grovenor House, a 32-story condo tower with a nautical theme in Coconut Grove.”

Architect Luis Revuelta, who has worked with Ugo Colombo and CMC Group for 25 years says Ugo Colombo “…insisted on importing Venetian stucco, Italian kitchen fixtures and Azurelite glass,” for the famous Bristol Tower that was built in 1993.

Ugo Colombo is continue his hands-approach – and attention to detail – in his latest project, Brickell Flatiron.  “’In order to really pay attention to what I’m doing, I need to work out a floor plan and personally look at what side each door swings and be happy with the column placement and how the whole building flows and functions,’” says Ugo.

Developer Alan Ojeda says Ugo Colombo “…invests so much time personally.  We all pay attention to detail, but with Ugo it’s an exquisite attention to detail, a real passion.”
