Inspired by the silhouette of a tulip, Turkey’s official flower, a 70-story architectural masterpiece will soon grace the Miami skyline with dynamic living and hospitality experiences within a multi-purpose tower, delivering sophistication, convenience and the finest fusion of brands.
Okan Group – one of Turkey’s leading companies and a significant developer – is making waves in Downtown Miami’s urban core. Okan Tower unites a diverse collection of mixed-use elements in one vertical destination, presenting a 316-key hotel by Hilton Hotels & Resorts, 64,000 square feet of ‘Class A’ office space, 236 additional condo-hotel units starting on the 36th floor, and 149 condominium residences, plus 4 penthouses, starting on the 51st floor.
Located at 555 North Miami Avenue, Okan Tower will bring a new, defining form to the city’s iconic horizon. The development is slated to break ground this year, with exclusive sales and marketing by ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.
Okan Group Chairman Bekir Okan greatly credits Miami’s vibrant energy and international fusion in his decision to name the city for the tower’s location. In between travels around the globe, Mr. Okan frequents his South Florida residence, which furthers his desire to allow the company’s roots to bloom in the Magic City, tied closely with the Hilton Hotels & Resorts name.
Considering the global footprints of Okan Group, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Sotheby’s International Realty, Okan Tower’s world appeal has taken its sales team across continents to showcase the product, including the U.S., Turkey, and Latin America.
Paying tribute to the Turkish culture, architect firm Behar Font & Partners designed Okan Tower and the striking curvature of its façade. The project’s condo-hotel units will be delivered turn-key within studios, and one and two bedrooms, from 445 to 1,055 square feet. Residential offerings will include condominiums ranging from one-to-three bedrooms, plus a den, with floorplans from 765 to 2,075 square feet. Two floors of duplex-style penthouses will feature expansive layouts.
World-class amenities are not spared, with Okan Group carefully curating a menu of offerings that truly matter to the target demographic. This includes high-speed elevators with separate access points for the various mixed-use components, a sky pool with panoramic views of the bay and city on the 70th floor, Hammam spa, state-of-the-art health and fitness center, multipurpose room, and outdoor lounge.
“In selecting our projects throughout the world, we always seek to establish an impact that will make history. Not only in its design, but through its level of experiential elements, Okan Tower will have a transformative effect on the metropolis that will forever change Miami’s skyline,” said Okan.
Okan Group brings to Miami nearly five decades of experience and a long-established reputation in Turkey and other parts of the world. The company has expertise in a variety of industries, including construction, tourism, education, health, and hospitality. One of Okan Group’s key holdings is Okan University, based in Istanbul, which is a private institution with a student body of more than 28,000. In 2015, the university expanded to Dania Beach, Florida, offering bachelor’s and master’s degrees to a growing base of students.

With convenience as a key factor to its location, Okan Tower is uniquely situated where business, entertainment, culture and art converge. Relishing in the benefits of its locale, the project is in proximity to American Airlines Arena, Perez Art Museum Miami, Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, Miami-Dade College North Campus, and the master-planned Miami Worldcenter, as well as just one block from Brightline Train Station.
