MIAMI | Lynx Development | 227m | 745ft | 80 fl | 436ft | App



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Downtown Miami Lynx Property Has New Owner

Quote:
New York investment firm Wharton Equity Partners has received the deed to the land where the Lynx complex was once proposed at 16 SE 2nd street in downtown Miami.

Wharton obtained the deed in lieu of foreclosure from previous owner Burdines 1225, LLC. Wharton had purchased the note earlier this year from Iberiabank, and received a final judgement last month. Burdines 1225 was managed by Gregory Mirmelli.

Wharton Equity Partners president Peter Lewis tells exMiami that the firm has already turned down multiple offers for the property, and that land prices have risen much faster than they anticipated since buying the note. Lewis said that they are considering all possibilities including developing it now or bringing in a partner.

The Lynx project was designed by Pei Partners and Chad Oppenheim, and received a major use special permit from the City of Miami in 2005.

The approved project included a mixed-use six-building cluster development ranging in height from 436 feet to 745 feet.

Looks very good. I'm glad they went for a simple, yet elegant design

I love Miami, but the last thing it needs is more boxes. It is vying with Boston to be the Seattle of the East.

I'd be very surprised if that design survives the revival process. The large office component is of little use right now since residential is where the action is. It could always be reworked using the same designs but I just doubt it...

Here's another revived development in Miami from about the same time which I hope can be built as envisioned:


Premiere Towers http://crescentheights.mobi/properties.html

But it too had office space in it.

Court Awards Damages Over Mortgage On Lynx Property

Quote:
A jury hit Harvey Silverman and his business partners with a $14.3 million verdict, including $5.3 million in compensatory damages and $9 million in punitive damages, over an attempt to wipe out a $5.5 million mortgage according to Law360.

In 2007, Silverman and partners bought the property known as the Lynx lot for $21.5 with a $5.5 million loan from the seller, 1225 8th Street Properties Inc., along with a $16 million mortgage from Orion Bank. Following the market collapse in 2009, Silverman and his partners crafted a plan to buy the first mortgage from the bank and foreclose on the property in order to eliminate the $5.5 million mortgage, according to court filings cited by Law360. Court records state that Silverman’s manager used a shell company to buy the mortgage.

The property is best known for the Lynx proposal prepared by Pei Partners and Chad Oppenheim, although the developers who dreamed up Lynx never actually owned the land. It is currently owned by Wharton Equity Partners.

[...]
While this verdict doesn't clear the way for development, it resolves an ugly outstanding issue. Wharton can either sell or develop the Lynx site themselves. I'm thinking they're looking to flip:

Quote:
Wharton Equity acquired a note secured by a 2.2 acre parcel of land in downtown Miami. The site is zoned for a 2 million square foot mixed use development project, and has plans previously developed by an architectural firm associated with the internationally-acclaimed architect, I.M. Pei. Wharton Equity’s partner on the transaction is a leading global hedge fund. The note was acquired “all cash” with 100% equity.

Lynx Property Listed For Sale, Could Fetch More Than $75 Million


The massive Lynx development envisioned several tall towers.

Quote:
A high-profile site in downtown Miami has been listed for sale by brokerage firm HFF.

The 2.1-acre site is located at 16 SE 2nd Street, and is best known for once being the proposed site of the Lynx project. It is zoned T6-80, with the potential for up to 3.2-million-square-foot project and a tower that is taller than 80 stories

In 2005, the city of Miami issued a MUSP for the mixed-use Lynx project on the site, designed by Pei Partners and Chad Oppenheim. Then company that was behind that proposal however, never actually owned the property, and the plans soon fell apart.

Wharton Equity Partners, the current owner of the land, took title to the property in 2013. It has been used as a surface parking lot for decades.

No asking price has been set. Jaret Turkell, a managing director at HFF, tells TNM that he expects the property to sell for ‘north of $75 million.’ The most recent open-market sale of the property was for $21.5 million in 2007.

[...]
Another site with supertall potential!

Hi guys, I recorded a registry while I was traveling during my last vacation in July.

I took one picture of the site when I was in the Miami Tower.

Kobi Karp Releases Rendering Of 80-Story Tower At Former Lynx Site



Quote:
Kobi Karp has released a rendering of a three-tower project on the former Lynx site.

It isn’t clear who commissioned the new design. Developer Wharton Equity Partners updated their site with the renderings last week, and they also have been added to the website of a broker who has been marketing the land since last April.

The property is zoned for up to 3.2-million square feet, with the potential for a tower that is 80 stories.
