Bjarke Ingels Job Wins Key Approval In Ft. Lauderdale


archdaily

Quote:
Marina Lofts received a 9-0 approval from the Fort Lauderdale Planning & Zoning board just before 1 a.m. on Wednesday.

The Fort Lauderdale City Commission chamber was overflowing with supporters wearing green t-shirts and opponents wearing blue shirts. There were so many in attendance that the fire marshal ordered that some attendees in the back of the chambers leave.

Developer Asi Cymbal and his team gave a detailed one-hour presentation about the project. Before the vote, city staff basically said the nearly 1,000-unit rental project fit with desired development in the area.

A controversial plan to move a giant rain tree wasn't within the purview of the P&Z board's review, so opponents' last-ditch efforts to stop the project will depend on the Fort Lauderdale City commission. So far, the commission appears to support the project

Big Broward Bonus!

Broward County's New Courthouse
Beginning Its Ascent:




Quote:
Construction action continues at the new Broward County Courthouse on the south side of the New River, just behind the county's 'riverview' jail. A construction shot taken by Smith Aerial Photos and posted on exMiami shows construction has hit the third floor of what will be a twenty story building, complete with court rooms galore, secure pedestrian bridges for prisoners, judges, and the public, and even an extra 34,000 square foot 'shell' floor, for future expansion.

They're tearing down Art Deco buildings for exchangeable, bland modernist stuff? What's going on, Miami? I remember you as quite a charming place. Charme's fading away as we speak...

"Growth" at any price isn't always the best option you can go for.

Way too many CBD's in North America approve...

Revealed, Rem & Bjarke Present Final Convention Center Plans




Quote:
Tuesday was D-Day of the Convention Center wars, with Rem Koolhaas and the South Beach-ACE gang, and Bjarke Ingels & Portman-CMC each making their final presentations for the Convention Center redevelopment job. In the end, there were surprising similarities between both plans, and some key differences. Rem continued to articulate his plan, while Bjarke's evolved. So, what's new? Well, here goes:

First to the plate is South Beach-ACE, with architect Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, developers Tishman and Robert Wennett, and landscape designers Raymond Jungles and Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates. Highlights of South Beach-ACE's plan include:

Quote:

1) A reoriented convention center, with all concourses to the south, and loading/unloading/service to the north.

2) A vertical convention center, with an elevated ballroom, 800 room hotel, and hotel meeting spaces on top of the main convention center halls, high enough to capture views of the city and the ocean. Rooftop space will either be allocated to hotel amenities or a green roof.

3) The loading, parking, and utility areas to the north buried by a giant man made hill that goes all the way to the convention center's roof with rolling meadows and jungly slopes, capturing the views.

4) A massive expansion to the botanical gardens, bringing them south and through the site, removing their isolation from the city, and creating a 'Central Park'-like effect.

5) The reorienting and vertical-stacking of the convention center will open up more corridors for ocean breezes, and the lanscaping plan will focus on providing maximum shade.

6) A completely openable wall between the westernmost convention center hall and the botanical garden/parkland outside.

7) A plaza to the south of the convention center, linking together city hall, the preserved Jackie Gleason Theater, the new 'mystery' cultural building, and retail and residential to the west. The Gleason will be given an exterior auditorium, thus making the stage two-sided. The plaza extends all the way to 17th Street.

8) A curving 17th Street with wide medians will mitigate traffic and make pedestrian crossings much more comfortable.

9) The old 17th Street garage will be preserved, with new ground level retail, multiple floors of residential on top, and a large amenity deck.

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

On the flip side, here's what's cooking with Portman-CMC, including architect Bjarke Ingels and Bjarke Ingels Group, architect John Portman, developers Portman Holdings and CMC Group, and landscape designers West 8:
1) The central square is the focus of the plan, around which radiate the now preserved Jackie Gleason Theater, a Latin American Cultural Museum, Miami Beach City Hall, the freestanding ballroom building, and the hotel.

2) The Jackie Gleason Theater will somehow open up to west, perhaps by creating a large new practice room with a window wall. Cirque du Soleil will share stage time with live music acts.

3) The hotel is now attached to the convention center's southern end, rising above the massive structure but kept at a low height to blend in with the surrounding community. The perimeter of the building's roof will, however, have a continuous green loop, and the hotel will look out onto an 'art roof' over the building's central expanse. The 'green roof' idea will be used for other, smaller buildings, and as an aesthetic device, however, especially where dramatic lawns can be created.

4) There will be a rooftop viewing terrace for the 'art roof'.

5) To the west of the ballroom, low-rise residential buildings harmonize with low-rise residential across Meridian Avenue. And to the north, the ballroom will open out to the botanical gardens.

6) A completely new 17th Street garage will replace the old one and have fun stuff on top.

7) The exhibit halls seem to have some kind of permeable wall thing going on with the exterior, like the South Beach-ACE plan does, but that might not be the case.

8) Back of house spaces will be located (probably) on the convention center's eastern side, with parking on top, all hidden behind a layer of residential and retail. And, god save them, they are actually proposing that the parking garage extend to the roof, creating roof top parking.

Anywhere else that building might survive but along Brickell, not a chance. Everything in that area will make way for towers. Not to worry though, Miami Beach is still loaded with the good stuff.

Marriott At Miami WorldCenter Is Actually A Thing, And Huge



http://blog.buzzbuzzhome.com/

Quote:
Holy Crap, while Curbed Miami was sleeping in to a respectable hour, other news outlets were getting their grubby little paws all over the news that the rumored 'Marriott At Miami Worldcenter' is actually a thing. Yep people, this planned massive tower's got 500,000 square feet of convention space and an 1,800 room Marriott Hotel on top. About to be purchased from the Miami Worldcenter peeps by some other peeps, the land - now currently the site of Grand Central Park - is now under the control of MDM Group, which will privately finance the project, although it will still be connected to the Miami Worldcenter megadevelopment when (and if) that on again, off again fantasyland of a city gets built.

The design, by architects Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (they of the 'accidental' leak earlier this year) appears to be a rather sleek looking towering rectangle, with swoopy arms reaching out across the site. Oh, and it will be connected via skybridge to the new All Aboard Florida train station downtown, which it is adjacent to.

Here's The Inside Of Downtown's Future Convention Center




Quote:
If all goes well, this will be the splashy new interior of Downtown's future convention center and 1800 room Marriott at Miami Worldcenter - making it South Florida's biggest hotel. (Take that Fontainebleau!) This image, and the one after the jump, flashed across our screens in the YouTube video the developers, MDM Group, used to announce the project. But apparently they put it together in a report as well, and gave that report to someone who somehow snuck it off to the exMiami people, where it was leaked, wham: the snazzy interior of a convention center that is totally way more beautiful than the current Miami Beach Convention Center, although at just half the size. So, it won't be holding any of the really, really big Art Basel/Boat Show type shows anytime soon.

Miami Beach

Retail Spaces Just-Off-Lincoln Road Sprouting Up Fast


Yard House

Quote:
Two new retail and restaurant buildings just off Lincoln Road and adjacent to Lincoln Lane North - both buildings sporting spanky contemporary designs - are fast on their way to completion. We found construction shots on exMiami. Above, Yard House, a restaurant, is building its own building at 1681 Lenox Avenue with multiple storefronts and a little plaza with a fountain visible from Lincoln Road. A few blocks to the east, on 17th street, the 1000 Building by Arquitectonica is three levels of retail topped by a restaurant with outdoor seating and a striking exterior staircase.


1000 Lincoln Road

But that's not all, dear readers... exMiami mentions two additional mystery projects in the planning stages:

-The Carib Theater at 230 Lincoln Road is proposed to be rebuilt as a small four story shopping center with 62,000 sf. It was originally built in 1950 and designed by Michael DeAngelis and Roy France. It has been shuttered for 25 years.

-The former Eastern Air Terminal (adj.Wings building) off Lincoln Road is proposed to be restored and rebuilt, with the parking lot converted into an outdoor seating area. However, the owners have proposed similar restoration projects in the past that were never built


Eastern Air Terminal as previously envisioned.

Margaritaville Beach Resort Ready To Go Up



Quote:
Hollywood city commissioners voted on Wednesday to allow developers of the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort to take possession of city property and begin construction.

The Miami Herald reports that the 349-room resort, which will be built at A1A and Johnson Street, is projected to cost $147 million and take 27 months to build.

The city will lease the land to the developers and has agreed to provide $23 million for furniture and other fixtures, according to the Herald.

Miami Starchitecture

Grove At Grand Bay Breaks Ground June 5



Quote:
Miami-based developer Terra Group expects to break June 5 on its Grove at Grand Bay condominium project in Coconut Grove, which will feature two 20-story glass and steel towers, twisting floor to floor and showcasing its bayfront views.

The low-density project, designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, will emphasize green space and comprise just 98 units, with prices starting at $3 million. The condos at 2675 South Bayshore Drive will boast floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors opening to 12-foot high balconies stretching 12 feet deep. Raymond Jungles is in charge of lush landscaping plans.

“Sales are going really well,’’ said Alicia Cervera, managing partner of Cervera Real Estate, which is marketing the project. “The north tower is almost sold out and the south tower began selling two months ago.’’
