Apeiron at the Jockey Club is a planned high-end development that will bring concierge living and five-star hotel accommodations to its namesake community, the storied Jockey Club on Biscayne Bay in northeastern Miami. Apeiron, which means ‘without limits’ in Greek, will pair luxury living with amenities that aim to ensure maximum health, wellness and youth preservation. The project is backed by a world-class development team that brings more than a century of combined design, architecture, development and sales experience on projects spanning all sides of the globe.

With community-oriented spaces in mind, Apeiron will enhance the expansive Jockey Club grounds with a new bay-front promenade, new landscaping, a children’s playground, dog park, and walking paths.
5. Who is designing the Apeiron project?
Apeiron is being designed by world-renowned architect Rafael Moneo of Spain, winner of architecture’s highest honor, the prestigious Pritzker Prize. Mr. Moneo is one of the world’s foremost contemporary architects with a body of work that spans more than fifty years and an extensive portfolio including high-rises, museums, university buildings and other prominent structures, including a new wing of Madrid’s famed Prado Museum.
Mr. Moneo’s building designs will be complemented by the work of Laurie Olin, one of America’s leading landscape architects and the former chair of Harvard University’s landscape architecture program. Mr. Olin will use his extensive expertise to beautify the green spaces in and around Apeiron at the Jockey Club.
6. Who else is part of the Apeiron development team?
Aside from its award-winning designers, Apeiron’s development team includes hospitality and development professionals with experience on projects in every region of the globe. The team includes: Ritz-Carlton Group co-founder and former President Horst Schulze, who later founded and now leads the ultra-luxury Capella Hotel Group; Michael Bedner, co-founder of HBA International, the world’s largest hospitality design firm; and Muayad “Mo” Abbas, who is founder and managing partner of Urbanis Advisors, and former Vice President of the Related Group’s international arm, Related International.
7. Is Apeiron allowed to build at the Jockey Club, given that some current residents of the community have raised objections?
Yes, Apeiron is absolutely entitled to build at the Jockey Club. The development team already owns the land that it intends to build on within the larger Jockey Club property.
8. What about noise during construction?
During the construction phase of the project, work will be limited to specific hours that do not interfere with residents’ enjoyment of the property.
9. What will happen to the existing swimming pools at the Jockey Club?
As part of its efforts to improve the overall property, Apeiron remains willing to pay for the construction of two new swimming pools – one for the Jockey Club I building and another for Jockey Club II building. The new pools will be at least as large as the existing pools and will include the latest lighting systems and pool technology. Importantly, the existing pools will not be closed until the two new pools are complete and ready for use.
