You are right, that specific study is news. I was just trying to say its generally been known for years that global warming will flood areas of coastal cities.

You may be interested in this interactive map that uses Google Maps to show the corresponding flooding for a certain amount of sea level rise.

For a second, I believed 4400 Biscayne was being redeveloped, but I read your post again. It's my favorite office tower in Miami outside of the Downtown/Brickell concentrations or Coconut Grove.

I think they will find a solution just like what the Netherlands did by building a strong levee system.

Watch Bjarke Ingels Explain His Split Design For Marina Lofts



Quote:
A few weeks ago, while architectural heartthrob Bjarke Ingels was in town for his whirlwind tour of his South Florida building projects, he gave a lecture on the design of his upcoming Marina Lofts apartments for developer Asi Cymbal. In attendance at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art was a group of Fort Lauderdale architects, urban planners, and city bureaucrat types at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art who swooned at the sight of his effortlessly tossed jet black hair, the sparkle in his eye, and his mastery of a t-square. In the lecture he focuses on the water-orientation of the project, the integration of the marina, the relocation of the rain tree to a new park, the practical rationale for the 'split open' design, and the very civic public promenade which will be a crucial neighborhood linkage and the centerpiece of the project.

The fate of Marina Lofts, which has inspired both passionate support and vitriolic opposition from many neighbors, is set to be decided August 20th, when it goes before the Fort Lauderdale City Commission in what will likely be a hell of a show.

Related Building Anew On 3 Midtown And Premier Towers Sites



Quote:
Jorge Perez has spilled the beans on two new Related Group projects, saying they are planning to develop 400 units and a hotel component at the former 3 Midtown site and calling it Hyde Midtown, and developing 1,000 units at the former Premiere Towers site adjacent to Mary Brickell Village (which they bought recently) and calling it Brickell Heights. Both projects would include entirely new designs as the former plans were for 265 units (designed by Chad Oppenheim) and 550 units respectively, and the Brickell Heights project will be three towers instead of the previously planned two.

Bjarke Ingels Marina Lofts Approved



Quote:
At 3 a.m. Tuesday, in a packed house of blood-shot eyes, developer Asi Cymbal and architectural superstar Bjarke Ingels' apartment development Marina Lofts was approved by the Fort Lauderdale City Commission, which is just about the most exciting thing to happen north of the Dade/Broward County boarder since the invention of shuffleboard. We kid, we kid! 'Where The Boys Are' was filmed there in the 60s. Anywho... Marina Lofts, is finally happening now. As a condition of the approval, it has been downscaled yet again, from 960 to 856 units. (It was originally over 1000) The Rain Tree will be moved, and placed within a beautiful new park , the Fort Lauerdale Riverwalk will finally be fully interconnected, and Fort Lauderdale will have a really iconic new piece of architecture.

Peebles' Overtown Megaproject Will Connect To The Proposed All Aboard Florida Railroad



Quote:
Although everything pointed to a win for Don Peebles, In a wonderful kumbaya sort of moment, Peebles and All Aboard Florida, the two teams which were duking it out for the new Overtown megaproject, have come to an agreement to combine the best of both schemes, according to exMiami. Peebles' project will now mesh with the proposed All Aboard Florida railroad station being built a few blocks away (literally, and perhaps even metaphorically, if one looks at it through the lens of history) across the tracks from the Overtown site.

Dolphins Stadium Still Alive??

Dolphins Owner Prepared to Improve Stadium Deal



Quote:
MIAMI-Fresh from the team’s opening day victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross on Monday said he is prepared to improve his offer to help fund renovations at Sun Life Stadium.

Ross’ current plan called for team and NFL funds to pay for approximately 55% of the proposed $350-million project, according to the Miami Herald. Miami-Dade and the state of Florida would provide funding for the remainder of the project. However, Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford declined to put the proposal up for a vote this past May.

In a news conference where he announced the hiring of Tom Garfinkel as the team’s new president and CEO, Ross said, “I offered the best deal that’s ever been offered by an owner of a professional sports team. It didn’t succeed for different reasons. Some of those reasons were not in the best interest of this community and were too personal…I was to pay back almost the entire loan (from Miami-Dade County). I am prepared to still do that and work with the community. I am prepared to make my offer better.”

Yeah, pay for the renovations with your own money, Mr. Ross.

No way dude, spending $350M on half of a roof is totally sensible. On a good day, half of the stadium will be in the shade and if it rains only half of the fans will get wet. As an added bonus, the half-roof ensures that the stadium gets no breeze. That could be a problem when the weather is hot (which is rare in South Florida) but kickers won't have to worry so much during field goal attempts.

Urban Hyatt Hotel Coming To Collins Ave. & 16th Street



Quote:
One of those rare old birds in South Beach, a small midcentury apartment building on Collins Avenue that looks just as it did when everything south of Lincoln Road was an unappreciated, crumbling dump yet to be discovered by the cool kids, is finally joining the ever-flashy South Beach of today. The Tropical Gardens Apartments is becoming a Hyatt, with a central sky-lit atrium, a rooftop pool, and a new eight story tower on top, all designed by Kobi Karp. This of course really means that they're just keeping portions of the old building's facade, scooping out everything else, and building away.

City Plans To Upzone Big Chunks Of Park West, Edgewater, "Wynwood Gateway"



Quote:
The City of Miami wants to upzone a chunk of Edgewater just north of the Omni for larger buildings, the intersection of NW 2nd Avenue and 29th Street in Wynwood—what they're calling "Wynwood Gateway"—to 150 units per acre, and basically all of Park West to a Manhattan-like density of 500 units per acre, according to city reports posted on exMiami. Each area is currently occupied by mostly empty lots or buildings a few stories high, except for the line of condo towers along Park West's eastern edge.

The plan will encourage development on long-empty lots just behind the row of condo towers at Margaret Pace Park, and of course allow the Miami Worldcenter and associated developments in Park West to be even more mammoth.

Miami's New Train Station Will Be A Victorian Futurist's Dream



Quote:
All Aboard Florida wants to build bigger than ever in downtown Miami, according to documents submitted to the city to create a Special Area Plan encompassing the land it owns, posted over on exMiami. Envision a soaring megaproject rivaling Brickell CityCentre wrapped around an elevated train station reached via viaduct, in the middle of downtown.



The new Special Area Plan, which AAF is calling the Downtown Intermodal District, gives some details of the station complex, without revealing any actual designs by architecture firm Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill. Station platforms will be above grade, elevated above cross streets and thereby minimally interrupting existing cross traffic, with towers above that. There will also be some development below grade, and under city streets.

The station and its towers will have about 1.5 million square feet of office space, almost a million square feet/785 units of residential, 495,000 square feet/820 hotel rooms, 450,000 square feet of retail, and a 63,000 square foot intercity passenger rail station and concourse. It will have (only) 3,730 parking spaces, a significant reduction from what is required under the zoning code.
