Together with leading real-estate group JDS Development (JDS), led by powerhouse developer and builder Michael Stern, MFG is debuting the highly anticipated 90-story residential and hospitality tower, located at 888 Brickell Avenue — and it’s going to be major 

The record-setting 1,049-foot-tall-tower, named Major, is setting a new standard from the moment guests enter the property. As a unified vision of four industry titans, MFG, JDS, Studio Sofield, and Ken Fulk, Major ushers in lifestyle-driven hospitality and exceptional residential design for Miami. “Major is remarkable,” stated Michael Stern, Founder & CEO of JDS. “This is the tallest, the most brilliantly designed, the best-in-class hospitality experience, with the best club, in the best city in the world.”

Designed as hybrid layouts, each Major Residence features a “lockout” function, allowing for seamless conversions between a private residence, suite, and/or guest room, ultimately creating a modern, upscale flexible living space.

The Club will include amenities that focus on entertaining, sports, leisure, wellness, and fitness, as well as a stunning pool deck and a terrazzo-clad sun deck with private cabanas offering poolside service through a yet-to-be-announced Major Food Group restaurant. 

The Food & Beverage program will include both signature MFG brands and entirely new concepts exclusive to Major, designed by longtime MFG collaborator Ken Fulk. Fulk has been at the helm of the design for iconic MFG outposts like Carbone and ZZ’s Club in Miami, and he will be breathing his fresh, sophisticated perspective into Major.

Throughout the entire property, from the residences to the Club, not one detail goes unnoticed. “The idea is to just show up, and everything is taken care of,” explains Jeff Zalaznick, MFG Co-Founder. “From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, every whim and desire is anticipated.”

I want to celebrate this sexy City with an indulgent swim in the only silver and gold pool in Miami.” In a grand architectural gesture of artistry and craft, the porte cochere welcomes with Gatsby-level energy through gold leaf trimmings, monolithic slabs of travertine, and white glove service, setting the tone for the building’s atmosphere.
