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.”
Downtown Miami’s hottest neighborhood celebrates a true architectural icon. Brickell Flatiron is an urban oasis developed by Ugo Colombo and designed by Luis Revuelta. The tower of soaring glass, defined by sweeping exposures, enhances the skyline with persuasive curves. Renaissance-revival interiors contrast the powerful structure proposing a romantic allure.
