Platinum On The Bay Miami Development Site sells For $29.1 Million

Quote:
A 2.6-acre bayfront development site in Miami has been sold for $29.1 million. The sale closed on March 27th.

Seller Fifteen Group purchased the site in 2011. The buyer is a Palm Beach entity managed by Daniel Hayes. The seller granted a $5 million mortgage to the buyer.

The land has a MUSP from the city of Miami for a 320 unit 590-foot 56 floor tower called Platinum On The Bay, however that plan included some land that was not a part of this sale.

SLS Brickell Will Have Giant, Very NYC-ish, Letters On Top



Quote:
As the Manhattanization of Miami continues with Manhattan-like urban density and the endless throngs of vacationing New Yorkers, many of whom never leave, the historically close link between Miami and New York is a blood bond that won't be broken anytime soon. So, what's the latest New York-esque thing to come to Miami? Why, it's giant lit-up letters on top of buildings! The Related Group's SLS Brickell will have a huge S, a huge L, and another huge S plopped up on its roof according to one of two new renderings sent to us by BuzzBuzzHome. Now it'll look just like the Hotel New Yorker, the Empire Hotel, the Domino Sugar Factory, and the Jahovah's Witnesse's HQ in Brooklyn Heights, all surmounted by big blinking letters lighting up the New York sky.

Apparently Curbed Miami knows absolutely nothing, because Manhattan banned signage on buildings since the Pan Am Building (unfortunately). I will say it makes the building look less generic than it already is.

Renderings Of Mahi Shrine Mixed-Use Project Show Big Box Stores With A River View



Quote:
The folks over at exMiami dug up the renderings and plans for Andrew Hellinger's big new River Landing mixed-use project on the site of the Mahi Shrine (HQ of those fez wearing, little car driving, Shriners) on the Miami River. Designed by ADD Inc., the complex is a vertical mosh pit of residential towers, amenity decks, retail, parking, and big box stores with a river view... kind of like an encapsulation of pleasant middle-class suburban life in a self contained urban bubble. Attention has been paid to the Riverwalk, which is green, and active, and connected to the street by some kind of glass-topped atrium. Oh, and it looks like they're promoting a giant movie screen on the side of the building overlooking some kind of park-like green space.

Miami Today


Panorama Tower

Quote:
Tallest Miami tower due in 2016

By Scott Blake

All plans are go to raise the bar for Miami's skyline, veteran Miami developer Tibor Hollo says about his Panorama Tower project on Brickell Avenue.

In the latter years of his long and storied career, Mr. Hollo is dreaming bigger than ever for Miami: Panorama at 1101 Brickell Ave. is planned to be 830 feet tall — which would make it the tallest building in Miami and in Florida. The 85-floor structure will have 941 rental apartments, 300,000 square feet of office space and 100,000 square feet of ground-level retail, Mr. Hollo said Tuesday in an interview with Miami Today. Overall, he added, the project will encompass about 3 million square feet of floor space.

Mr. Hollo, Panorama's developer and owner, said his high-rise dream is well on its way to becoming a reality, as some preliminary construction has been completed to set the stage for vertical construction of the tower. He said the project is scheduled for completion 33 months from now, which would put the opening in January 2016. He said he plans to start marketing the tower to tenants in about 15 months, or in summer 2014.

He said construction of a three-story utility building on the site is complete, and Florida Power & Light Co. is preparing to occupy the building. The building is to be used to provide power for the site. Utilities are being diverted to the site and a street crossing soon will be created, Mr. Hollo added.
Construction at the site, between Brickell Avenue and Brickell Bay Drive, started last year. Eventually, a parking garage there is to be demolished to make room for Panorama.

Mr. Hollo said this is a landmark project for him and the city. "I'm about thrilled about it and what it does for the city," he said. "It's an iconic project. It's global landmark that will catapult the city to a different level." That level will be about 41 feet above the Four Seasons Hotel & Tower, also on Brickell Avenue, which has Miami's and Florida's tallest building for the past 10 years.

But Mr. Hollo isn't stopping there. His other high-rise dream — One Bayfront Plaza, slated for 100 S Biscayne Blvd. in downtown Miami — is planned to be Miami's first "super-tall" skyscraper at 1,010 feet. That project has been on the drawing board for years, but Mr. Hollo sounded confident it also will become a reality sometime after Panorama is completed.

[...]
One Bayfront Tower

Site Work Continues For Miami's Tallest Tower, On Schedule To Open In 2016



Quote:
In an interview with Miami Today, developer Tibor Hollo says that site work continues on Panorama Tower in Brickell, planned to be Miami's and Florida's tallest tower at 830 feet, ousting the Four Seasons Tower, with an expected completion date in 2016. Built on an empty lot behind another building he currently owns, Panorama Tower will be 830 feet tall with 940 rental apartments, 300,000 square feet of office space, and 100,000 square feet of retail space. As for the number of stories, the Miami Today article says it'll have 85 floors, which seems a bit high for an 830 foot tall building, so we'll get back to you about that. It might be a typo.

More SLS Brickell Renderings



Quote:
Not yet released to the public, the SLS Brickell sales brochure has found its way over to exMiami.org, with as-yet-unreleased renderings of the Arquitectonica-designed tower and other details. It looks the majority of the building will be residential, with only 132 hotel rooms but 450 apartments, the whole thing will be topped by a pool for residents, as well as a large pool situation (a row of pools really) down on the amenity deck. The base is painted in fruity-tuty colors, with lots of art, and the retail and restaurants will line the street facade. We hear that, even though realtors (and we assume their clients) are the only ones to have seen many details about the building so far, 400 of the 450 units are already under reservation.

Renderings Show Huge Balconies At Herzog & de Meuron's Jade Signature Condo Tower



Quote:
A new Facebook page set up for the Herzog & de Meuron-designed Jade Signature soon too rise in Sunny Isles Beach has dropped into the laps of the world two renderings of gargantuanly huge balconies hanging off of (what else?) glass-walled apartments entirely in white, or in super-light concrete. At least those walls come with a few curves that give some kind of a hint this place was actually designed by somebody, instead of squeezed through a skyscraper mold like Play-Doh.

Wait, aren't those the pre-bust renderings of Panorama Tower? As far as I found out, they changed it for the worst:

Flatiron Park To Stay Park After Swap



Quote:
Added to the very short list of shit that City of Miami officials do right, according to the Crespogram Report, they are swapping with developer Mallory Kauderer the 3,000 square foot southern half of Allen Morris Park for the entire 8,000 square foot Flatiron Park site. (And probably some additional FAR credits, but whatevs. Skyscrapers are cool) This means the city is losing half of a pretty, but tiny, and little used, pocket park for an even bigger park that's already been designed by Raymond Jungles and built by a Kauderer, and is fast becoming an important public space for the Brickell area. Brickell Flatiron Park is and an actual honest-to-goodness permanent park! And Mallory will be building his new condo tower next door.
Good news for park lovers but terrible news for the Flatiron Tower.





On the bright side, the new Kauderer tower will have enough FAR allowance to go skyscraper but will not have the same sleek design, however architect Luis Revuelta has been retained to design the new tower.

Related Snags Big Element Site In Edgewater. No Word Yet On What They'll Do With It

The site:


Quote:
The Related Group has snagged a block-sized waterfront lot in Edgewater between 30th terrace and 31st street, according to the admins at exMiami, blocks away from their current Edgewater project, Icon Bay. This was formerly the site of the proposed and approved, but never built, 'Element Miami' tower. The Element design by architects Dorsky + Yue was, however, rather unsensational, which means Related being Related will probably chuck it out and start fresh.
Former Element Miami project:

Land Rush Doubles Values In Miami's Edgewater



Quote:
Miami-based Related Group of Miami LLC paid $29 million for a waterfront site north of downtown Miami, up from the $11 million early last year.

A joint venture between Wellington-based Eastview Realty Advisors LLC and New York-based GTIS Partners Lt. just paid $28.1 million for another waterfront site in the same Edgewater neighborhood. That is nearly twice the $14.5 million the seller paid for the debt on the site and 21 unsold condos in an abutting building in 2011.

Miami-based Melo Group Inc. late last year acquired a parcel steps from Biscayne Bay in the same area for $5.32 million, up from the $2.65 million the seller paid for the debt on the property in 2010.

A waterfront development site is now under contract for more than twice the $9.1 million the seller paid for in 2011, according to several sources.

These deals show one of the most drastic recoveries in South Florida land values as a new condo boom makes people forget about the housing bust.

The development focus in Edgewater is between Biscayne Bay and Biscayne Boulevard and between I-395 and I-195.

[...]

Leading The Way

In this new cycle, Melo Group led the new Edgewater condo boom and in a way, all across South Florida. Melo, founded by Jose Luis Melo and sons Carlos and Martin, built their first Miami condo project during the recession. The trio pre-sold the 96 units at 23 Biscayne Bay at 601 NE 23 St. to foreign buyers who were willing to pay half of the purchase price during construction and the other half at closing.

That project proved two things to the development community. Edgewater has matured into a desirable neighborhood especially among South Americans, who are doing most of the condo buying. It also proved the half-down payment structure was a legitimate financing tool.

The Melos closed on the 23 Biscayne condos last year when units sold for $260-$300 a square foot, Carlos Melo said. The units already are reselling for about $360 a square foot, Jose Luis Melo added.

Fast appreciation of condos and development sites was common in the Brickell area and downtown Miami, where cash-rich foreign buyers descended in waves. "In East Edgewater, you can still buy for under $400 per square foot," said Cervera, who is marketing the Melos' latest proposed project, 164-unit BayHouse at 600 NE 27 St. "That is impossible to do in Brickell right now."

The Melos are strong believers in Edgewater. Since 2001, they have built four rental buildings in the area. The family owns enough land — including four blocks east of the boulevard — to build about 2,500 residential units, Carlos Melo said. The family plans to build one of Miami's tallest buildings at 1770 N. Bayshore Drive — a 65-story condo. The family also is building the luxury Skyview apartment building at 425 NE 22 St.

The father and sons began buying Edgewater land in 2001 when the family migrated from Argentina. Back then, the low-rise area was home to prostitutes, drug dealers and homeless people. Many abandoned homes had been demolished, and empty lots dotted the neighborhood. Jose Luis Melo figured the waterfront neighborhood so close to downtown would one day become a hot spot. He was right.

"Now, there is no way back," Melo said.

Leaked Echo Brickell Renderings Show A Big Swishy Tower



Quote:
Friday, April 26, 2013, by Sean McCaughan


An early rendering and a Google Earth snapshot that were leaked to exMiami show Brickell's latest proposed tall, tall, tall residential tower, Echo Brickell. The plans show a narrow glowing podium, a glowing midsection, and... well, everything's glassy and glowing.

Miami's Garage-less Condo Tower, Centro, Is Getting The Yves Behar Treatment



Quote:
That garage-less condo tower soon going up in Downtown Miami that's causing so much hoopla, Centro, (No parking garage? How could they?!) will have its interiors and public spaces designed by the super famous designer Yves Behar in collaboration with the building's architects, Sieger Suarez. It'll also have, as one comes to expect in high-design condo buildings in Miami's urban core, amenities up the wazoo, including a 'two story penthouse recreation area', a health club & spa, something that sounds like a dog park, ground floor retail & restaurant, and (ironically for a building with no parking) full service valet. But, hey, this is a rather curious building, full of anachronisms.

There's valet, but no parking. It has a famous designer and twelve foot ceilings, but (and get this) bedroom windows are tall and narrow, depriving its occupants of sun, which is basically a god-given right in Miami. Yeppers. Check 'em out in the floorplans below. We hear it might have something to do with the fire code, but still, it's like the 70s all over again.

Miami Leads Trend Of Super-High-Rise Luxury Housing


Echo Brickell

Quote:
Living in super-high condo towers, by now is hallmark of Miami life for many moneyed Miamians, is apparently the next big thing in luxury living nationally. New York's got One57 and 432 Park under construction, and Chicago has the Trump International with its penthouse up for grabs. In Miami's we've got the Panorama Tower, Echo Brickell (which sold 30 of their units in one day), One Thousand Museum, and many others under construction or planned. Although it may be shocking news to nobody that people like living up high, Miami is now (for once?) the leader of the pack.

South Beach

Is Third Time A Charm For Proposed Little Tower On Ocean?



Quote:
After some rather irritating indecisiveness about architect, about name, and perhaps about its own existence, the planned tower formerly known as 120 Ocean and before that as Kallisto, formerly designed by Bermello Ajamil, and before that Arquitectonica, will finally rise as Glass, with a heavily reworked design by Rene Gonzalez, according to exMiami. And hopefully it'll stay that way, because indecisiveness is exhausting and stressful, and stress gives us wrinkles, and if there's something nobody in Miami wants, it's wrinkles. And this time the design's actually pretty good.
