Framed by Florida's picturesque Biscayne Bay, 3900 Alton Road will be architect Ricardo Bofill’s first condominium project in the United States. With 78 residences in a variety of sizes, and amenities including pools, electric vehicle charging stations and artwork by Fernando Mastrangelo and Loris Cecchini, the elegant new tower will be an “urban oasis” in Miami Beach.

Located near the Faena District, Miami Design District, and Sunset Harbour, 3900 Alton is situated squarely in Mid-Beach, on a highly sought after site.

Complementing the nearby body of water, Bofill’s design incorporates a sense of transparency, with water-like glass amid plant life that crawls up walls and over decks. Natural light will bathe Bofill’s transparent designs, highlighting views from Biscayne Bay from sunrise to sunset.

A highly choreographed series of spaces by Bofill maximizes a “sophisticated lifestyle” with close attention paid to context, material and small details.
