Newgard Development Group has selected G.T. McDonald Enterprises, Inc. as the general contractor for LOFTY Brickell, a high-end condominium project at 99 Southwest 7th Street. This 540-foot-tall, 44-story building, designed by Arquitectonica, features interiors by INC and landscaping by Urban Robot Associates. Following Newgard’s recent procurement of a foundation work permit, construction is scheduled to begin at the start of the year. Located along the Miami River in the vibrant Brickell district of the city, LOFTY Brickell is poised to become a prominent landmark. The vertical construction of this impressive structure is expected to take between 30 and 36 months.

This partnership furthers the established and fruitful relationship between Newgard and G.T. McDonald, following their joint accomplishment in the Gale Residences Fort Lauderdale Beach project, completed in 2018. Based in Plantation, Florida, G.T. McDonald Enterprises, Inc. has over 40 years of expertise in Design-Build and Construction Management services throughout South Florida. The company’s robust team of over 80 skilled professionals, encompassing Certified General Contractors and licensed Professional Engineers, cements its status as a leading construction firm in the region.

“Newgard values G.T. McDonald as a partner, and their team is ideally positioned to manage the construction of LOFTY Brickell,” stated Harvey Hernandez, Newgard’s founder and CEO. “We are excited to extend our partnership and look forward to the vertical construction phase.”

G.T. McDonald Enterprises, Inc. boasts an impressive portfolio that includes significant projects like 1111 Lincoln Road, Diplomat Tower 100 in Hallandale Beach, The Rise at Flagler Village in Fort Lauderdale, and Monad Terrace in Miami Beach. The firm is actively leading the construction of the first of four large mixed-use towers at The River District in Brickell.

LOFTY Brickell, with over 94% of its units already sold, represents the pinnacle of Newgard’s innovative approach to flexible ownership. It is currently one of the most successful condominium projects in Miami’s real estate market. Cervera Real Estate, serving as the exclusive sales and marketing partner, plays a crucial role in the project’s success.

“G.T. McDonald’s consistent delivery of quality work on schedule and within budget makes them an exceptional choice for a project of LOFTY’s stature,” added Bromley Kelly, Newgard’s Senior Vice President of Construction.

Jerry McDonald, President of G.T. McDonald Enterprises, Inc., expressed excitement about the project, noting, “LOFTY will be a remarkable addition to Miami’s skyline and the Brickell district. Our team is eager to apply our high-rise expertise to ensure LOFTY’s success for Newgard.”

LOFTY Brickell comprises 362 units, ranging from studios to one- and two-bedroom residences, all elegantly furnished by INC. The building boasts an expansive 40,000 square feet of amenities. These include a private marina, an exclusive members-only social club, a resort-style pool deck, a fully-equipped fitness center, spa facilities, an indoor cigar lounge, a co-working lounge, and meeting rooms. Additionally, a 10,000-square-foot rooftop skydeck is exclusively available for private events for unit owners, adding a touch of luxury to the living experience.
