A new world-class mixed-use luxury tower in the heart of Brickell, 1 Southside Park will usher in a new evolution to the neighborhood with upgrades to Southside Park among many other public benefits that will celebrate a new mode of urban living in Miami.

Imagined by JDS Development Group, working with SHoP Architects and James Corner Field Operations, 1 Southside Park is a public-private partnership in the Brickell Metropolitan Urban Center that will bring together state-of-the-art new facilities for City of Miami Fire Station No. 4 with market-defining residential, office, event and wellness spaces; a world-class hotel with food & beverage outlets; and vibrant public arenas. As part of the Brickell Rapid Transit Zone, the project will enhance access to public transportation, provide direct connection to the Underline’s Brickell Backyard, revive and reinvigorate Southside Park, and offer numerous other public benefits. “We strive to fundamentally understand the neighborhoods in which we build, and to bring an appropriate and dynamic urban experience that enhances the quality of life for residents, neighbors and visitors,” says Michael Stern, Founder & CEO of JDS Development Group, whose innovative portfolio of significant mixed-use projects that respond to each community and push the boundaries of engineering and design includes 111 West 57th Street, American Copper Buildings and 9 DeKalb with SHoP as well as Walker Tower, Monad Terrace and Echo Brickell. “I started my career in Miami and it’s my home. The city’s development story is still unfolding and there’s a sense of excitement, a sense of getting to shape the city as it grows, and to help it evolve responsibly and sustainably.”
