Met 3 Split In Two


exMiami

Quote:
July 8, 2013

Met 3 developer MDM could obtain a temporary certificate of occupancy after building just nine floors, allowing a Whole Foods supermarket to open.

City of Miami planners recently approved a request to split the project into two distinct phases at the request of Ocean Bank, which provided construction financing for the first phase.

The first phase includes the ground level supermarket and eight levels of parking required for both the supermarket and the Met Square entertainment complex. Construction is well underway.

MDM has a contract to sell the air rights above the garage to another developer with plans to build a second phase. Phase 2 will complete levels 10-12 of the parking structure, and will add a residential tower with over 400 units on top. Construction could begin immediately after phase 1 is complete.
Work on the first phase, a 9 story retail base, has already begun.

Starquitecture in Miami

King Jorge Perez Plans Mega-Condo Project In Edgewater Called Element



Quote:
Guess what King Jorge is doing with this site? Jorge Perez's Related Group is embarking on a massive new 700 unit, 55 story, two tower condo colony in Edgewater, called 'Element' and designed by his "court architects" Arquitectonica. The project was revealed by exMiami. Thumbs up, of course, for development in Edgewater, but thumbs down for just about everything else.

The ginormous new, 55 story project, is doing what Related is in the midst of doing at Icon Bay only a few blocks south: taking over a public street in exchange for giving the city a public park, and again severing the close connection between Biscayne Boulevard and Biscayne Bay that do beautifully defines Edgewater. The street will be privatized and built over with a multi-floor parking garage and amenity deck. No longer will you be able to see the bay from Biscayne Boulevard on 31st street...

[...]

Tower crazed!

Brickell CityCentre Buys 700 Brickell, A Massive New $65 Million Front Door


700 Brickell getting a bulldozer's sweet embrace.

Quote:
As expected, Brickell CityCentre, already ginormous at about five city blocks in size, has purchased 700 Brickell Avenue, an unnamed source told the South Florida Business Journal. CityCentre now has (1) a sizable chunk of prime Brickell Avenue property to expand the already mega megadevelopment, (2) a Brickell Avenue address, and most importantly (c) a giant new front door with the aforementioned Brickell Avenue address. They paid a pretty penny for it too, beating out Related Group and Fortune International who were also bidding for it, to the tune of $65 million.
Here we go, an 8th tower!

46 Story "Biscayne Beach" Condo Tower Sneaking Up On Edgewater

Few details at this time...



More On Biscayne Beach:

Quote:
Edgewater’s latest condo debutant, named ‘Biscayne Beach’, was formally unveiled at a party tonight, and backers are promising a unique feature – a beach club along the bay behind the tower.

The 399-unit residential project will be located on 29th street and Biscayne Bay, in a neighborhood that is exploding with new development.

Construction of the 51-floor tower is set to begin in the 1st quarter of 2014.

34 Story "River Tower" On Tap For Downtown


exMiami

Quote:
The new owner of a vacant parcel at 230 Southwest 3rd Street in downtown Miami is moving quickly with a proposal to build a tower on the property.

River Tower LLC purchased the site in May for $4.6 million. River Tower is managed by Brian Campbell 2010 Revocable Living Trust.

The proposed tower would include 449 residential units in a 34 floor, 360 foot tall structure. The tower is being designed by Arquitectonica alum C. Chloe Keidaish, who recently hung her own shingle under the name Studio X Architects.

Newgard Advances Plans For Cima Site


exmiami

Quote:
We reported in April that an agreement to sell the site of the proposed Cima condominium tower had been reached, and that the new buyer was working to revive the old plans.

We now have confirmation that Newgard Development is currently advancing plans to build on the site – although a sale has not yet closed. Newgard is building two other downtown projects – Brickell House and Centro.

Newgard’s recently submitted plans call for 605 foot condo tower on the Cima site – which is identical in size to what was originally planned at the site.

1428 Brickell In Play

Quote:
Fortune International Realty chairman Walter Defortuna signed an option agreement last fall that gives him the right to purchase a property at 1428 Brickell Avenue.

The option is set to expire in a few months, so Defortuna must soon decide whether he will exercise it.

1428 Brickell is a relatively small office building at just over 100,000 square feet, but sits on over an acre of land with a prime Brickell Avenue address.
An outdated office building sitting on a large parcel with a hot address:




This could be good!

Frolic In The Bay At This 51 Story Edgewater Condo



Quote:
Here's something somewhat novel: swimming in the bay off the Edgewater seawall, the marquee feature of Edgewater's latest big-ass condo, Biscayne Beach. People swim in Biscayne Bay all the time. They take a boat out, jump off the side, frolic in the aquiline waters, jet ski past Flagler Memorial Island, etc. Closer to the mainland, the swimming conditions don't look so good, but they probably just need cleaning up.

Let's assume they install swimming docks. Then they do something to clean up the litter, check for dead bodies, scrap off the barnacles, vanquish the seaweed, and somehow make the bay bottom pleasant and sandy without upsetting environmentalists too much. They add jet skis, paddle boards, kayaks, rafts, colorful plastic floaties. Put in some cabanas, maybe a sandy spot with lounge chairs. Don't make it a private, exclusive party place. Put it right out in the public, with a baywalk straight down the middle.

[...]

Awakenings

Dezer Seeks Renewal Of Solis Sunny Isles Building Permit


http://exmiami.org/index.php/dezer-i...ty-solis-note/

July 16, 2013

Quote:
Developer Gil Dezer is asking the city of Sunny Isles Beach commission to renew a building permit for the 53-story Solis Sunny Isles tower.

Construction on the tower began in 2007, but was halted after 10 floors due to the economic collapse. Lender Mercantil Commercebank filed a foreclosure lawsuit against developer Alex Forkosh, but Mercantil later sold the note on the property to Dezer.

Although the case is still in court, Forkosh and Dezer appear to be cooperating in an effort to renew the permit; Both wrote letters to the Sunny Isles commission requesting the extension.

A memo issued by the city’s finance department in May reveals that the city is expecting construction at Solis to resume by the end of fiscal year 2013.
Time to get back to work!

Related’s Watson Island Project Could Impact Development In Downtown Miami



Quote:
Related Groups’ recently revealed proposal to build a 500,000 square foot retail center on Watson Island might be bad news for developers looking to build elsewhere in downtown Miami.

Under the terms of a 1987 deal with the state, development in downtown Miami is governed by a blanket ‘Development of Regional Impact’ approval, instead of requiring developers to submit costly and time-consuming applications for each new development.

Related Group’s Jorge Perez and The Related Companies’ Stephen Ross now say that they have been working for nearly a year on a deal that would transfer hundreds of thousands of square feet of retail from the downtown DRI to Watson Island. That would leave less than 200,000 square feet of retail space in the downtown DRI for other developers to use – although no one knows exactly how a new law passed last year will affect the terms of the DRI.
One more talking point for opponents...

Carless at Centro?



Quote:
Sarah Goodyear
Jul 16, 2013

Miami and cars. They go together like piña and colada, right?

Well, maybe so. But one new luxury condo in the heart of downtown is making what is, for this Florida city, a bold move. The building in many ways fits the profile of recent development in Miami’s reviving core: It has 36 stories, 352 units, and 10-foot ceilings.

But as for parking? Zero of that.

Not for private motor vehicles, anyway. The Centro, as it’s called, will have a five-car Car2Go auto share station featuring the city-backed service’s distinctive, blue-and-white Smart cars; covered bike parking; and, if Miami gets bike share, maybe one of those stations as well. The project breaks ground this fall.

The marketing materials for the building, which is half sold, according to the Miami Herald, lead with the tagline “Feel the Street. At Your Feet” and feature photos of happy young people biking and walking. Prices range from $220,000 to about $450,000. If you want a place to park your car, there’s a city-owned lot a block away, and it will cost you extra. “The Centro experience takes cosmopolitan city dwelling to street level,” promises the brochure.

The parking-garage-free tower was made possible by city zoning that allows no parking garages in buildings that are close to transit in densely developed areas. The Centro’s location is a quick walk from stations for Miami’s MetroMover and Metrorail. And there are plenty of other amenities within walking distance in the neighborhood, which has seen a revival of residential and commercial use that was slowed but not halted by the real estate crisis. A Whole Foods is under construction just a block from the building.
