Soleste Grand Central Apartments Showcase CGI Commercial Products
The Floridant/10106400

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--More than 28,000 square feet of impact-resistant windows and doors from CGI Commercial, part of the PGT Innovations family of brands, were recently installed throughout Soleste Grand Central, a newly constructed 360-unit luxury apartment building in Miami.

MTM Glass Concepts, a Miami-based authorized dealer partner, began installation of the CGI Commercial storefront windows in July 2020 and completed the install in late 2020. The impact-resistant storefront windows and doors were used throughout the 18-story structure's units and common areas. More than 150 windows and doors cover approximately three-fourths of Soleste Grand Central's building façade. The products were selected for this project due to their superior performance and the stringent Miami-Dade building code certification.

"Over the past few years, we have seen a trend of commercial-grade products, such as full height floor-to-ceiling glass elevations and other innovative window products, being used in single-family homes as a way to achieve beautiful and expansive views while also protecting the home from severe weather," said Alex Hassun, Sales Manager for CGI Commercial. "Now, commercial developers, condominium homeowner's associations, apartment buildings, and universities are following suit for these properties. Many owners are outfitting their buildings with high-impact storefronts and energy-efficient glass, gaining substantial hurricane protection and energy-saving benefits of insulated glass with Low-E coating."
