The Aurora Gardens at 17550 Collins Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach is currently under construction. The planned gardens provide a stunning landscape for the site’s proposed residential tower. The ground level is designed to form large pedestrian plaza along Collins Avenue, and the elevated plaza provides views of the Atlantic Ocean to the east. We arranged large Buttonwood trees to frame these panoramas, soften the architecture, and provide refuge from the South Florida sun. The amenity level design consists of distinct garden rooms and straightforward circulation paths. Seaside and appropriate sub-tropical plantings adorn the garden spaces, making them welcoming and vibrant. The completion of the Aurora Gardens is anticipated in early 2019.
