From Urban Land Institute:
PLANNING AND DESIGN
Notes Bruce Brosch, partner at Nichols, the architect for the project, “We pulled the building all the way to the corner for visibility and to create a more sculptural response to the program and the site.” Although the office building is the second phase of the project that began with One Broadway, the designers and developers chose to go with a completely different design for the exterior of the building. Thus, it has a very different shape and is clad in completely different materials than One Broadway, although the buildings are joined at the base by a parking structure.
Fourteen Fifty Brickell is a LEED Gold–certified building, which incorporates numerous features that make it especially resilient and resistant to hurricanes. Its most distinguishing design element is the impact-resistant blue glass arranged in a variety of angular shapes across the facades.

1450 Brickell Tower Becomes Miami’s First LEED Gold Office Building
Just days after unveiling that 1450 Brickell now has 226,000 square feet of office space leased, the project’s developer announced today that the ‘class-A’ building has been awarded LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System is the nation’s accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of environmentally-sound buildings. This makes 1450 Brickell the Downtown Miami/Brickell market’s first and only office tower to achieve LEED Gold status in the core and shell category, which applies to new construction.
The 35-story, 582,817 square foot office tower’s LEED Gold certification coincides with receipt of its Certificate of Occupancy, which verifies that the building is in compliance with all local building codes and is safe for permanent occupancy.
LEED Gold certification
1450 Brickell features a range of efficient strategies and technologies that enhance the health and productivity of its tenants while reducing waste and promoting environmental sustainability.
