Besides housing Class-A office spaces and ground-floor retail, the mixed-use development provides a full-floor leisure deck inclusive of a heated pool, lounges, days beds and wet bar. Residents also have access to a fitness center, 24-hour concierge and electric car charging stations.

Una Brickell

Una - Brickell

This September, Doronin’s Una Residences bagged key waivers from the Miami Urban Design Review Board.

Other amenities at this waterfront tower include a third floor dedicated to three pools, an outdoor lounge, cabanas and grilling area, a waterfront spa and fitness center, private marina, cinema and more.
