JDS DEVELOPMENT GROUP
Known for best-in-class engineering and record-breaking arch- itecture the world over, JDS Development Group brings their breadth of experience to Miami, where it is headquartered. Composed of a team of innovators and builders led by Michael Stern, JDS is no stranger to large scale urban development and constantly pushes the boundaries of engineering and design, disrupting the skyline as often as they break ground. Having recently sold out Monad Terrace, their mixed-use condominium building located on Miami’s South Beach, the team has set their sights on Brickell, spearheading the renaissance of development taking place over the next few years. 888 marks another supertall residential tower for JDS Development, after the iconic 111 West 57th Street on Central Park in New York and the skyline- resetting Brooklyn Tower. 888 will be their first entry into the hospitality sector, a natural step forward as their collaborative endeavors expand into new territory with like-minded partners.
When William Sofield entered the design profession, he envi- sioned a workshop dedicated to creative relationships with clients and productive collaborations with artisans and artists. These priorities inspire the work of Studio Sofield, which has distinguished itself as an interdisciplinary firm noted for the clarity, quality and wit of its projects. In every project, beautiful and functional solutions emerge from an artistic concept that is balanced by an unfailing sensitivity to the client’s needs and tastes. Studio Sofield continues to develop new concepts for many clients, such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Sotheby’s Diamonds and Coach, and is currently working on three ground-up apartment towers in Manhattan. Recent work includes a residential tower for The Brodsky Organization, a residence at the Carlyle Hotel, and townhouses located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and in London’s Regent’s Park. Past projects include new concept and roll-out for Harry Winston, Tom Ford and Belsta", and recent concept proposals include projects for Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany, New York, and The Webster in Los Angeles.
