Swire Properties Clears FAA Hurdle for Stunning Two-Tower Development on Brickell Key


Swire Properties, a prominent developer known for its innovative projects, has achieved a major milestone with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approving their ambitious One Island Drive development on Brickell Key. This green light propels Swire Properties closer to realizing its visionary project, which promises to be an architectural marvel in the heart of Miami.


The taller tower will be called The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Miami, with 220 residential units.

The second tower will be a Mandarin Oriental hotel with 151 guest rooms, 61 private residences and 28 hotel residences.


The FAA approval specifies the maximum heights for both towers. Tower 1, aptly named The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Miami, has been approved to soar over 1,000 feet above ground or 1,049 feet above sea level, making it a prominent fixture in the city’s skyline. This tower will offer 220 luxurious residential units, providing residents with an unparalleled living experience of sophistication and elegance.

It will encompass 151 guest rooms, 61 private residences, and 28 hotel residences, catering to discerning travelers seeking an extraordinary hospitality experience.


One Island Drive will comprise two striking towers redefining the city’s skyline. Designed by the esteemed firm Kohn Pedersen Fox, these towers will boast distinctive architectural styles, setting them apart from the conventional Miami skyline while harmoniously complementing each other. Renowned Parisian designer Tristan Auer will meticulously craft the interiors of the residential units. In contrast, the esteemed Parisian designer Laura Gonzalez will bring the hotel interiors to life. The acclaimed Thai firm Shma will lead the landscape architecture, ensuring a breathtaking fusion of natural and urban elements within the development.
