Insight Design, the project architect and designer, selected SLIMPACT® as the ideal replacement for the outdated entrance. SLIMPACT®’s modern frameless glazing system provided an elegant upgrade to the north and south entrances, while meeting the tough South Florida large missile requirements for the High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ).
ONE BISCAYNE – MIAMI, FL
One Biscayne Tower, a 39-story concrete structure built in 1972 was Miami’s tallest building for 44 years. This iconic office building, at 2 S. Biscayne Boulevard, recently completed a $7 million renovation that modernized the main entrance and lobby. The original entrance system was pre-hurricane Andrew and had a non-impact frameless glass entrance system.
