Billionaire Vladislav Doronin’s OKO Group hires Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture to design Worlds tallest tower

OKO Group, led by billionaire Russian-born developer Vladislav Doronin hired Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture to design its condo tower planned in Miami’s booming Brickell neighborhood.

The developer hasn’t revealed the details of the proposed tower other than to say it would be 47-story tall, so it’s up to AS+GG to create the building. This will be the firm’s first project in Miami.

Other projects by the Chicago-based firm and its principals include Burj Khalifa in Dubia (the world’s tallest building), Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia (the world’s second-tallest building), and Wuhan Greenald Center in China.

“We are thrilled to be appointed for this project for OKO Group and to be designing AS+GG’s first Miami project,” said Adrian Smith. “We are impressed with OKO Group’s commitment to thoughtful design and quality construction and we look forward to creating a world-class building for them.”

In 2015, OKO Group paid $48 million for a 44-year-old condo building at 175 S.E. 25th Street, which is on Biscayne Bay just north of the Rickenbacker Causeway. After terminating the condo association, it plans to tear down the building and construct a luxury tower. Security Benefit Corp. provided a $34 million loan to the developer in February.
