Owner Of The Chelsea Submits New Plans For 52-Story Tower

Quote:
By exMiami Staff on June 26, 2013

The owner of the proposed Chelsea tower at 1550 Biscayne Boulevard has submitted a redesign of the project to the City of Miami.

A Major Use Special Permit was granted by the city in 2006 for a mixed-use tower that included office, residential and retail space. The proposed modifications to the MUSP retain office space on the lower floors and residential units on the upper floors.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board reviewed the new design prepared by Revuelta Architecture last week and recommended approval.

Developer Mallory Kauderer tells exMiami that the construction timeframe is dependent on market conditions.
A sneak peek at the plans:

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.

Beacon At Brickell Village Site May Have Buyer


The original 38 story Beacon at Brickell Village tower (MRET)

Quote:
A newly formed corporation made a $19.5 million bid to purchase the property where Beacon at Brickell Village was once proposed.

Affiliates of Miami developer Crescent Heights won an $18m foreclosure judgement on the property in December, but owner Renzo Renzi tried to stall the process with a bankruptcy filing.

Crystal Tower on Brickell Plaza, managed by Omar Botero, made the offer in bankruptcy court. The new offer exceeds the amount of the foreclosure judgement.

Related Buys Premiere Towers Site

Quote:
Related Group has purchased the site where Premiere Towers was once proposed from Miami developer Crescent Heights for $32 million. The sale closed earlier this month.

Crescent Heights bought the property in 2009 for $9 million.

Premiere Towers was approved as a MUSP in 2004. The elliptical towers were designed by Bermello Ajamil & Partners and included 556 residential units, as well as retail, office and other commercial space.

Related Group CFO Matt Allan tells the DBR that Crescent Heights remains a partner on the project. No decision has been made yet on what will be built.
What once might have been..and could be again??:

Jackson Hospital Plans $830 Million Overhaul



Quote:
From $14 million for new elevators, to $55 million for renovating patient rooms, to $129 million for computer software, Jackson Health System has unveiled an $830 million wish list of building repairs, upgrades and new equipment to be funded entirely by Miami-Dade taxpayer funds.

Jackson administrators have proposed completing a major overhaul over the next 10 years of the hospital system’s main Civic Center campus and satellite hospitals in North Miami Beach and South Dade.

On Tuesday Miami-Dade commissioners are scheduled to consider a request from Jackson’s governing board for a special election in November asking voters to raise property-tax rates to pay for the initiative.

“Jackson Health System is so important to the healthcare of South Florida,’’ Commissioner Sally Heyman said. “I think the community as a whole will embrace maintaining higher standards for Jackson.’’

Two years after a financial crisis that nearly bankrupted Miami-Dade’s public hospital system, Jackson administrators say the overhaul is necessary to bring the 95-year-old public hospital system’s facilities into the 21st century and position it to better compete against local hospitals.

Rooftop pool at One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid:



Quote:
ExMiami scored renderings of the Aquatic Center and Skylounge on the 60th and 61st floors that make the building look like something straight out of a James Bond movie. Like, why are there no sharks with lasers on their heads in that pool? And a buxom blond Bond girl dangling from a hook as she's slowly lowered down to be eaten alive? Seriously people! It's a pool with an underwater glass wall 60 stories above Biscayne Boulevard.

Any New Urbanism developments in Miami?
Urbanity isn't exactly one of Florida's strong points. In fact, it's pretty week.

Lawsuits be damned!

The Relateds, Being The Relateds, Are Supersizing Their Island Gardens Megaproject



Quote:
300,000 more square feet of retail and 100 more hotel rooms with development rights transferred from downtown Miami. Plus what we can only presume will be an entirely new design, although it hasn't been released yet. Island Gardens, under the guise of both Relateds (Related Group and the Related Companies) has plans to get ever bigger. Yes, a downtown Miami resident has stuck it with a pesky lawsuit, but this is Related, times two, and they can deal with such things like nobody else.
New design? Can't wait!

Preconstruction Sales for 600 and 700 Biscayne Blvd to Launch Soon?




Quote:
Posted on July 3, 2013 by Lucas Lechuga

While driving through Downtown Miami earlier this week, I noticed a number of signs at each corner of the sites for 600 and 700 Biscayne Boulevard. The signs say “Another Luxury Development by Chateau Group”. A telephone number is also included. Despite a number of calls, however, I have yet to obtain any additional information. Just assurances that a sales person would contact me soon. The lots are located immediately south of Marina Blue and just north of the Freedom Tower. I have heard rumors for months that pricing will range from $600-$800 per square foot for non-penthouse units at each of the two developments but I’m sure at this point not even the developer knows for certain. It will be an interesting addition to the array of preconstruction condo developments that have been announced for Miami within the past year.

As much as the Biscayne wall is impressive, it surely is a let down at ground level where the buildings are as engaging as a random street in the suburbs.

Sometimes I think of it as a "fašade," suitable for postcards and Heat game transmissions, but not so for the density, urbanity, and vibe many of us say we want for Miami.

You can not have urbanity where the people that can only afford these type of buildings/apartments are the rich...who do not actually live in Miami...and who do not walk. They should make it affordable for the middle class as well.
