UPDATED, 2:00 p.m., May 10: The new 37-floor residential tower project Centro in downtown Miami is one step closer to its vision for sustainability.Newgard Development Group has tapped award-winning entrepreneur and sustainability advocate Yves Béhar to design its new 37-floor residential tower in downtown Miami, according to the company.

Newgard intends Centro to be environmentally friendly by encouraging alternative modes of transportation. Centro will offer Car2Go smart cars, a bike-share program and a valet, but no parking spaces. At 151 Southeast First Street, it is located close to the Metromover stations, Metrorail, Miami Trolley stops and multiple bus lines, the release said.

The building will feature one and two-bedroom loft-style homes. The units will contain “geometric patterns” and “organic forms in machined aluminum” from Neal Feay, Swarovski amplify lights, Herman Miller and custom furniture, the release said.

Béhar’s San Francisco-based industrial design and branding firm, fuseproject, envisions minimal walls and room divisions. Yves Béhar was recognized by Condé Nast as designer of the year in 2011. —Mark Maurer
