3333 Biscayne, an alluring commercial building to provide new office and retail spaces for Miami's Biscayne corridor, is taking its location near Miami's famed Design District very seriously. With a strong focus on aesthetic beauty rarely found in commercial buildings, combined with the contest being held for the building's outdoor mural design, 3333 is a new kind of real estate.

3333 Biscayne has been influenced by artistic elements from its inception. The project is a unique fusion of ideas; the design incorporates a balance of practicality, art and fantasy, resulting in colorful and invigorating spaces with utilitarian value. The innovative, soft and curvaceous plan for the building's exterior originated as a stark geometric blueprint, but slowly evolved into a rounded and whimsical vision throughout the planning process. Even the building's number, "3333", fits the feminine and curvaceous aesthetic. "The genesis of 3333 was based on invigorating a forgotten quarter of the city and its purpose is to bring back the class and prestige of a 1940's Miami," says the building's architect, Pat Bosch of Perkins+Will. Perkins+Will is the #1 firm with LEED accredited professionals as well the 3rd largest firm in Architecture and Interiors in the country.

With sexy interiors and a creative use of space and light, the structural design of 3333 embodies a feeling of luxury and openness; beginning in the lobby with its double-high ceilings and wall to wall glass. The building will reflect the sky and surrounding areas by day and the stars and city lights by night when it transforms into a palatial, luminous vision.

Carrying on the dedication to beauty and community, the developers of 3333, Cardinal Development, sought the "unknown talents" of Miami's art scene and created a competition for the design of the building's outdoor mural. The 3333 Biscayne Mural Competition began as a credited class for students at the Miami International University of Art and Design encompassing two semesters of work. The course required participants to create and design several different concepts for the outdoor mural, which were then presented to the developers and architects of the project. The students were judged on creative vision and artistic efforts, while bearing in mind the need for feasibility, produce-ability and durability. The mural will be located on the northwest corner of the building at Biscayne Blvd. and NE 34th St., and will become part of Miami's tradition of outdoor design excellence, similar to the nearby Bacardi Building.

The outdoor installation, combined with the building's architectural magnificence, will bring together the worlds of art and commerce; both through the mural itself and the building's local businesses housed inside. As one of the most trafficked streets in Miami, travelers on Biscayne will rejoice in a bright visual inspiration to enjoy during their long drives. Scheduled for completion in summer 2008, the project is situated between NE 33rd and 34th Streets along Biscayne Boulevard and will serve as an urban catalyst for commercial future development in the area.
