According to a recent article published on Robb Report, the Miami high-rise features a Solar Backbone, panes of glass embedded with solar technology.
It seems the future of sustainability is here, at least at Miami’s newest solar-powered high-rise, The Residences at 1428 Brickell. The project, recently announced by developer Ytech, is the first project of its kind in the world to integrate photovoltaic glazing within the facade.
The 70-story tower, designed by Milan-based ACPV Architects Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, combines form and function with the solar energy features blended within the architectural aesthetic. The building features 500 photovoltaic-integrated windows on the west-facing facade that creates a Solar Backbone on the building.
The Residences at 1428 Brickell is currently accepting reservations with a five percent deposit and is set for completion in 2026.
