The W Hotel in South Beach, Miami, Florida has quickly become an architectural icon and has set a new standard for luxury hotel design in Miami. It is a 408-unit condominium hotel with one- and two-bedroom residences, beach bungalows and penthouses. The building sits on a piece of beachfront property directly adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean.
The project opened in 2007. As the real estate market in Miami started to decline due to the global financial crisis, the W Hotel maintained its success by continuing to sell ist condominium unist without having to implement price reductions.

He was also responsible for the coordinating the architectural design work executed at Costas Kondylis and Partners with the internationally recognized interior design firm of Yabu Pushelberg.
