Ugo Colombo’s Brickell Flatiron Nearing Completion

Ugo Colombo, President of CMC Group, is nearing completion of his latest development project, the Brickell Flatiron. This project broke ground in early 2017 and is on time to be completed by this summer. Once finished, Brickell Flatiron will stand 736 feet tall or 64 stories high and will feature 549 luxury living units. Residents of Brickell Flatiron will have a 360-degree view of Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami at the rooftop level.

Brickell Flatiron will break records as the second tallest condominium building that is located south of New York City. Colombo’s inspiration behind this project was to bring the Manhattan lifestyle to Miami. Residents will be able to walk to shops, restaurants and public transit, so everything you would need is just within reach. The location of the building could not be more perfect at 1001 South Miami Avenue, just blocks away from the bustling Brickell Avenue.

Colombo’s exquisite eye for detail and luxury are obvious in every aspect of design, including, the cabinets, faucets and fixtures which were hand-picked and imported from Italy. Exclusivity and luxury were of utmost importance when the design of Brickell Flatiron was in the works to ensure a memorable experience for all residents that will stand the test of time.

Prior to this project, Ugo Colombo and Valerio Morabito worked to develop a building known as Beach House 8 in Mid-Beach. This condominium tower stands ten floors tall and was completed in 2014.

Jaguar Goes Electric

As the 50th anniversary marking the launch of the Jaguar XJ approaches, Jaguar has been reimagining this classic sedan. With more luxury car companies taking notes from Tesla’s success, Jaguar is following suit, announcing that the 2019 Jaguar XJ will be a hatchback electric vehicle. This newly redesigned car will have an aluminum frame and twin motors that power all-wheel drive. Jaguar intends on ensuring this car’s output rivals non-electric vehicles to keep with its sports car roots.

This electric vehicle’s range will take you over 300 miles before needing to be charged again. Although this is less than Tesla’s over 600-mile range on the newer models, the choice to cross over to a fully electric engine is unique when compared to other brands Jaguar competes with. It’s projected that electric vehicles and hatchbacks will surpass sedans in popularity in the coming years.

Though this vehicle doesn’t launch until late in 2018, THE COLLECTION carries the luxurious 2018 sedan model, with a range of colors and specs to choose from.
