COR, the first sustainable, mixed-use condominium in Miami, Florida represents a dynamic synergy between architecture, structural engineering and ecology. Rising 400’ above the Design District, Cor extracts power from its environment utilizing the latest advancements in wind turbines, photovoltaic technology, and solar hot water generation— while integrating them into its architectural identity.

A hyper-efficient exoskeleton shell simultaneously provides building structure, thermal mass for insulation, shading for natural cooling, enclosure for terraces, armatures for turbines, and loggias for congregating on the ground. Comprising commercial, office, fitness, live/work, and pure residential spaces - COR provides a uniquely flexible platform for ­ lifestyle enhancement.
