Ross’s Comments – What you Need to Know about SLS Lux
The building’s design and amenities are constructed for the typical “urban dweller” that seeks a modern and sleek design package with a full array of amenities and extensive services, while the livable space is stuffed with bedrooms and smaller living spaces.
Ten years ago the idea on Brickell was to develop a single amenity deck ten-stories above the street level and away from the noise. Today, it is all about offering multiple amenity levels and a “sky deck” with big views, infinity pool and no shortage of sunlight, such as at the 57th floor rooftop pool and spa of the SLS Lux.
The first eight floors consist of the 84 Designer Suites, or hotel suites, whereas the 10th through 57th floors will consist of 450 private Residences with 10 units per floor.
The Residences feature 9 or 10 foot high ceilings, private elevator access, and fully finished walk-in closets in the master bedrooms and several choices of porcelain tile flooring.
Due to the proximity of the SLS Lux across the street from Brickell City Centre, and the addition of a restaurant by Katsuya Uechi, a vast collection of art throughout the common areas, rooftop pool and extensive amenities on the 9th, 44th and 57th floors, plus the LED facade by Ana Martinez, the SLS Lux has all the ingredients to be a success in the Brickell market.
The private Residences and Designer Suites units are subject to different rules and regulations and maintenance fees (or service charges).
Rental Policy: Residences - No lease shall be for a period of less than thirty (30) days and no unit shall be leased more than three (3) times in any twelve (12) month period. Designer (Hotel) Suites - No rental restrictions; Leasing shall not be subject to the prior written approval of the association.

The Brickell district is an urban neighborhood of greater Downtown Miami situated on the south side of the Miami River, which serves as Miami and South Florida’s major financial district. Brickell is also a dense, high-rise residential neighborhood with many upscale, luxury condominium, and apartment towers.
Referred to as the “Manhattan of the South,” Brickell is home to the largest concentration of international banks in the United States, as well as many popular Miami restaurants, shops, hotels, offices and places of entertainment. A few hundred feet east of the northeastern side of Brickell is Brickell Key, a gated island of exclusive, high-rise residential towers and the Mandarin Oriental Miami Hotel.
As of 2013, over 220,000 office employees work in the Downtown and Brickell areas. Today, the Brickell and Downtown Miami neighborhoods are the fastest-growing neighborhoods in Miami, growing from 40,000 residents in 2000 to 74,000 in 2013 with a median household income of $70,800.
The biggest driver in the area is the development of Brickell City Centre, a massive 5.4 million square foot mixed use project spanning four city blocks. It will consist of two luxury residential towers, a hotel and an office building, all connected by a high rise and open air shopping center with extensive entertainment, retail, restaurant and other offerings. Although Brickell is already considered a highly desirable to “live, work and play”, the addition of Brickell City Centre is going to be a major game changer for the city of Miami.
