Miami Beach Planning Board Unanimously Approves Plans for First Peter Marino Designed Office Building
MIAMI BEACH, FL — SHVO, the ultra-luxury real estate development and investment firm, is pleased to announce it has secured the unanimous approval of the Miami Beach Planning Board for the development of One Soundscape Park, the first office building designed by acclaimed architect Peter Marino.
Located at 1665-1667 Washington Avenue in Miami Beach, the contemporary high-design and high-performance property designed by Peter Marino in collaboration with Kobi Karp Architects, comprises 62,500 square feet of Class A commercial space with panoramic exposures of Soundscape Park, South Beach, and the Atlantic Ocean.
Featuring five floors of vibrant office space, the property’s striking façade is a composition of white vertical fins that vary in density and pitch lining floor-to-ceiling glazing, with interiors tailored to optimize a tenant’s working culture and operational needs with meticulous, specialty artisanal architectural finishes, building services, and lighting components.
The design emphasizes a rigorous commitment to quality, sustainability and state-of-the-art infrastructure while showcasing signature unobstructed corner exposures, an amenitized roof terrace, on-site valet parking, a tailored service program, and an elegant private porte-cochere arrival with vertical gardens. Commissioned art and furniture play a central role in the project with Peter Marino curated pieces defining the porte-cochere and lobby.
