New Miami Juvenile Justice Courthouse Lets Kids Gone Bad Meet Their Fate In Style:



Quote:
Miami-Dade's bad kids are getting a massive new courthouse centrally located in the Government Center district of jails, office buildings, the police headquarters, and other courthouses, designed by architecture firm HOK. It's big, blocky, and despite those glassy walled lower floors, looks quite monolithic. Hey, it coordinates with all the brutalist architecture surrounding it. But does Miami-Dade County really have enough troublemaking ragamuffins to fill up such a castle? Apparently, somebody thinks so. Noticeably absent: a playground. Naughty children don't get playgrounds.

Rotten kids, fancy digs.

Swire Brings EAST Hotel Brand to CityCentre



Quote:
June 3, 2013

MIAMI—Swire Properties revealed yet another key component of its $1+ billion Brickell CityCentre project. The Hong Kong-based developer plans to bring Swire Hotels’ EAST brand to the project as the flagship hotel.

Billed as a lifestyle hotel, EAST is popular in Hong Kong and Beijing. The Brickell CityCentre debut will mark EAST’s first entrance onto the U.S. hotel scene. Swire Hotels will also manage the hotel.

“Interest on the part of hospitality companies in flagging the Brickell CityCentre hotel has been keen due to their desire to secure a prime location in the hot Brickell market and due to the inclusion of luxury retail in our project,” says Stephen Owens, president of Swire Properties. “We were ultimately able to select from among 10 upscale hotel brands in choosing Swire Hotels’ EAST for our flag.”

At Brickell CityCentre, EAST, Miami is expected to offer about 218,000 square feet with 263 guest rooms and 89 serviced apartments. The hotel will have two restaurants and a rooftop bar, as well as meeting rooms, pool, fitness center and treatment rooms.

Bjarke Ingels' Whirlwind Miami Tour Ended With Grove At Grand Bay Groundbreaking



Quote:
Architectural it-boy and crush of many Bjarke Ingels was on a rampage of glory through Miami and Fort Lauderdale this week, making appearances for all three of his South Florida projects, three nights in a row. Each party was a hot ticket and more elaborate than the one before it. Monday night he gave an enthralling presentation of his architectural portfolio at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, followed by a presentation of his plans for the Marina Lofts apartments. Tuesday he opened the Portman-CMC Miami Beach Convention Center team's new showroom on Lincoln Lane North.

The fun fest culminated last night at the spectacularly fun groundbreaking ceremony for his Grove at Grand Bay project, that pair of majestically twisting condo towers. As construction ceremoniously began, it was noted that if everything stayed on schedule, this project would be his first completed work in all the Americas, north and south.

Related Reveals Unika Replacement, Baltus House




Quote:
A long ass time ago (okay, eight months) Curbed Miami got a tip that the Related Group had picked up the old Unika condo tower site for little more than a song, complete with approvals and entitlements for the tower formerly known as Unika. All that we knew at the time was that Related planned to adapt the plans to "current market conditions" and build the damn thing. Eight months later, with plans suitably adapted by architects Cohen Freedman Encinosa, this is the result: Baltus House. Curbed Miami found renderings on both BuzzBuzzHome and exMiami.

They named it after a furniture company, but not in a retro way. >>
Okay, so they're jumping on the "Hey let's get a fancy furniture company to do our interiors and use that for advertising" bandwagon (see Le Parc) but what else is new, or not? The building is upscale, but not super-upscale. The building still has windows and is not entirely floor-to-ceiling glass. The balconies have been glassed though, and made long and contiguous, taking out that silly pattern on the facade. The original 60s era office building hasn't gone anywhere.









Yecch. This is like planting a fancy awning in front of a toilet and calling it "The Renoir".

Villa Magna Site Development Could Be HUGE



Quote:
According to the wonks at exMiami, mack daddy of development Tibor Hollo has submitted plans for 1,208 residential units at the 2.5 acre waterfront Villa Magna site in Brickell. The massiveness, which will presumably be contained in multiple towers (the site is zoned up to 80 stories), comes along with a wittle bit of retail and a restaurant or two. It looks like the hotel he once planned for the mix will be dropped

Check Out The Pool At Echo Brickell:



Quote:
Renderings of extremely well selling, and future almost-tallest-building-in-Miami, Echo Brickell, have been hard to come by despite how well the building is selling. BuzzBuzzHome somehow scored a view from Echo Brickell's pool deck, which passes right through the building half way up. Given that the pool has been promoted as going all the way through the building, one can easily come to the conclusion that there is more to it behind the viewer. Could the pool be a moat around the elevator core that goes all the way to the edge of the building?

Miami Starchitecture

Frank Gehry's plans for the YoungArts campus?


The Bacardi Building

Quote:
Curbed Miami hears, from an architectural heavyweight who's been to Frank Gehry's office to see the designs, that Gehry's plans for the YoungArts campus at the Bacardi Building are absolutely spectacular. The buildings are more Gehry-esque than the New World Center, the plan takes advantage of the entire site, and it's also more urban, going right up to Biscayne Boulevard

Vintro Ft. Lauderdale gets refinements:



Quote:
Vintro, the vertiginous boutique hotel planned for Fort Lauderdale Beach has been tweaked to satiate NIMBY objections. They've reduced the number of hotel rooms, slimmed the profile a tad, added a pedestrian plaza, and added a twelfth floor restaurant and a third floor sculpture garden, in hopes of pleasing the persnickety neighbors

The new proposal is lightyears better than "Unika," in name and especially architecture.

Banco Santander: Keep Our Approval For 950-Foot Tower Active



Quote:
Banco Santander wants to retain the right to build an office tower up to 950 feet at 1401 Brickell.

The company had received a determination from the FAA in 2010 that the tower would not be a hazard to air navigation, but it was set to expire. Santander now wants an extension.

Both Relateds Are On Board At Island Gardens


http://exmiami.org/index.php/related...sland-gardens/



Quote:
The Related Companies of New York and the Related Group of Miami have joined the Flagstone Group's Island Gardens megaproject paaaaarty. Preliminary designs were shown to city commissioners by architecture firm Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates. The two Relateds have promised an expanded scope, adding more hotel rooms, double the retail, a 100,000 square foot convention center, and the full shimmer and swagger of a Related project (times two!) to the long-stalled Watson Island plan.

Too much huge-blockwide stuff... It'd be healthier for Miami to grow on smaller lots, comparable to the Ocean Drive area.

Any New Urbanism developments in Miami?
