Canyon Ranch Living, Carillon II
The touchstone of this project is Miami's historic Carillon Hotel. Once the epitome of 1950s glamour, the South Florida landmark had fallen into disrepair and stood empty for more than 10 years. The owner undertook to restore, convert and expand the Carillon into a new Canyon Ranch location, consisting of a condominium community, hotel and spa, all embodying "Canyon Ranch living." Plaza was selected to manage construction on the property's 36-story, 207-unit luxury condominium tower.
An upscale, wellness-themed condominium in sync with Canyon Ranch locations nationwide, which have garnered numerous awards as well as passionate devotees. Tranquil lobby interiors feature Jerusalem marble floors and coral detailed walls with black slate waterfalls. An oceanfront infinity edge pool on the ground level is surrounded by South African IPE wood cabanas and open air yoga and fitness areas. On the sixth floor, a vanishing edge pool overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway and includes meditation pods and teak trellis swings.
In the role of construction manager, Plaza uses ingenuity and innovation to meet exceptionally high quality standards while staying at, or whenever possible, under budget. We revised this property's six-story decorative concrete wall detail, originally designed as a poured-in-place structure, into a tilt-up panel structure, saving the owner over $400,000.
