First-of-its-kind solar powered residential tower planned in Brickell

by Patrick Regan

Ytech is planning a 70-story project in Brickell that it says will be the first high-rise residential tower to incorporate solar power. 

The Residences at 1428 Brickell will offer 189 units priced from $2 million to $7 million as well as penthouses from $8 million to more than $40 million.  

Cervera Real Estate will handle sales at the property.

Cosentini Associates will serve as the project’s solar energy consultant. The building will blend solar energy cells, called photovoltaic glazing, into the exterior glass. That includes “500 photovoltaic-integrated windows along the west-facing facade, creating a solar backbone comprising nearly 20,000 square feet of energy-producing glass,” according to a news release. “This is intended to result in the reduction of approximately 4,700 tons of CO2 and the use of 3,000 barrels less of oil.”

The solar energy will be used to power the common areas of the building, reducing HOA costs for residents.

Amenities will include rooftop pool and atrium, wine and fine art lounge, gym, weight room, yoga room, juice bar, spa, meditation room, sauna, barbershop, children’s learning area and splash pools, playgrounds and cinema screening room.

“Ytech’s vision is to create residential sanctuaries in an urban environment where design is driven first and foremost by resident experience and needs,” said Yamal Yidios, CEO of Ytech. “Complemented by impeccable architecture and advanced engineering, a remarkable combination of form and function, The Residences at 1428 Brickell will become iconic in delivering an unparalleled, service-oriented living experience.”
