The Lady Is A Vamp At Revamped Nine At Mary Brickell Village



Quote:
With new renderings and a new name, what was once EnV Brickell is now Nine at Mary Brickell Village. (Named as thus because it's on SW Ninth Street) Drawing conclusions from the renderings not much has changed architecturally, except that now the building will light up at night adding to Miami's already technicolor skyline. The interiors, however, have received the 'Nine' treatment, and are quite fancy, and the project is currently under construction. With 390 luxury units and rising 34 stories it may not be an architectural tour-de-force, but you will only be a quick elevator ride from Publix should you run out of milk.

Related Turns Icon Palm Beach Into A Bona-Fide Megaproject



Quote:
A 1,059 unit condo project is big in Miami, huge in Fort Lauderdale and basically city gobbling in West Palm Beach. At Curbed Miami we're not size queens, and big can certainly be ruinously bad for a city. It can also be great. But there's something about a six tower, 1,000+ unit luxury condo development that will invariably get us all hot and bothered. And the Related Group's new Icon Palm Beach project, which is named that despite actually being in West Palm Beach, at 4400 North Flagler Drive, is giving us hot flashes.

NIMBY Wars: Cranky Weirdo Edition

Convention Center Aiming For 2015 Start Despite Total Jerk Commissioner Jonah Wolfson


Wolfson: lawyer and shitbag extraordinaire.

Quote:
To make up for the delay of the Miami Beach Convention Center redevelopment vote, a project with broad popular support, Miami Beach officials are trying to speed up the process of building the Rem Koolhaas-designed project in other ways so as to begin construction on the $1 billion project by 2015. Meanwhile, Commissioner Jonah Wolfson is continuing his (one man?) fight to sink the whole damned convention center ship.

That's just the beginning of the bizarro world of Wolfson. He tried to block the historic designation of 42 Star Island, and is against efforts to historically designate single family homes (or anything) on the Beach. And in the last month alone he has mocked Mayor Matti Bower's high pitched voice during a long commission meeting, threatened to throw himself off the third floor of city hall twice, and yelled "*******" at a Miami Beach Mayoral candidate during an election debate. Unfortunately for the general sanity of Miami Beach politics, Wolfson himself won't be up for reelection until 2015. We checked.

Coming To Miami Beach: The AC Hotel



Quote:
Across Collins Avenue from the currently under construction Marriott Edition—actually on the site that is now the Edition's staging area at 2912 Collins Avenue—Marriott is striking again with another hotel, this one under their AC Hotels banner... and the omnipresent Kobi Karp is designing the joint. Renderings recently landed on his website. The AC chain is currently in Spain, Portugal, and Italy, but is being imported to the U.S.A., with its first hotel opening by the end of 2014.

Brickell Flatiron Park Sold To Ugo Columbo For $21M, Possibly Being Developed



Quote:
ExMiami reports that Mallory Kauderer has sold Brickell Flatiron Park to fellow developer Ugo Columbo for $21 million, and Columbo has already secured a $12.6 million mortgage on the property. The piece, which is (naturally for exMiami because they are anonymous insiders) unsourced, seems to leave open the possibility of the park itself being developed even though it is supposed to be preserved as a park.

Through a land swap deal with the City of Miami, Kauderer had promised to preserve the then-temporary park as a permanent park in exchange for another piece of land that would give him ownership of the entire block and make it easier for him to develop the northern portion of the property. (the park is only on the southern half) Since the park itself is supposedly now protected as a park under the terms of that deal, the presumption is this protection will continue under Columbo's ownership, and that mortgage is just for the northern developable half.

This Is Louis Vuitton's Towering Future Design District HQ



Quote:
Renderings discovered on a lonely corner of the interwebs (i.e. the website of Capital Partners), and confirmed to be accurate by an anonymous source close to Dacra Development show a line of new buildings along NE 1st Ave, at NE 39th and 40th Streets in the Miami Design District with an absolutely massive looking Louis Vuitton store spanning the entire block. The renderings feature 2 new buildings and suggest that the bigger structure may also be the extravagant future Miami home of Louis Vuitton (one needs hardly to pull out a magnifying glass to see that honker.

The new goodies suggest that the luxury meter in the Design District may need a new ceiling. These particular buildings certainly did when the zoning map was altered through a Special Area Plan (and an expansion of said plan) to allow more floors at that exact location. Just glance at the updated zoning map and the aforementioned revision will stick out like a Walmart in Midtown. The original Miami 21 zoning boundaries were specifically changed for these structures and have allowed the buildings to rise far higher than their neighbors. The larger structure was even granted special permission to rise above the T6-12-O zoning limit of 12 stories through a bonus for providing "public benefits." More details please.

Designed by architect Carlos Ferrator, this portion of the Design District redevelopment promises approximately 46,285 square feet of leasable retail and 85,035 square feet of sellable residential space (80 condos). It also includes 52 hotel rooms. These partially European designed and inspired edifices appear to be among the larger scale developments within the Miami Design District Special Area Plan. While they surprisingly appear to appeal to the pedestrian and bicyclist before the automobile, I would bet on a large parking structure very nearby.

DACRA is trying to avoid putting too much parking in the neighborhood because they are really going for a pedestrian friendly environment. However, Iwamoto Scott Architects has this garage on their website that will be a couple blocks south of the OAB hotel.



There's also the Palm Court building, designed by K/R, but I have no idea where it is supposed to go in relation to the hotel.

Sou Fujimoto And iwamotoScott Doing Design District Buildings



Quote:
Two buildings being added to the new Miami Design District have recently surfaced. Sou Fujimoto, the hot hot architect of this year's Serpentine Pavilion in London is designing a retail building in the District's new Palm Court consisting of an elongated series of glass fins supporting two levels of retail under a "structural waterfall". It, one of the "cornerstones" of the whole neighborhood, will be completed in early 2014. Nearby, iwamatoScott is doing another of Miami's by now archetypical designer parking garages. What would the Design District be without at least one of those? The garage, which will have retail on the ground floor and be close to I-95 will serve double duty as sort of a billboard to the District with its abstract shapes and colors.

Parque Towers at St. Tropez Ready To Squeeze Into Sunny Isles Skyline



Quote:
Parque Towers at St. Tropez, a two-toward project named for Sunny Isles' planned Gateway Park across the street, will go up along Sunny Isles Boulevard, developer J. Milton & Associates announced today. The site looks to be right between Chad Oppenheim's also-twin towered 400 Sunny Isles project and Milton's other project, the St. Tropez, which has three towers and a pedestrian friendly town-square-like base. Parque will continue that pedestrian-friendly, somewhat New Urbanist approach. Big news for auto-centric Sunny Isles Beach, but as of now neither the park, nor the towers exist yet, so there ya go. Sunny Isles Beach, land of apartments accessed by car elevators, goes "urban."

Worldcenter mall project could draw Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s



Quote:
Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s are in talks to take up space at the Miami Worldcenter’s proposed 750,000-square-foot Downtown mall, sources told the South Florida Business Journal.

Miami Worldcenter Associates is working to secure retailers with Palm Beach Gardens-based developer Forbes Company and Taubman Centers, which have jointly developed several shopping centers and have ties to Macy’s. Macy’s serves as the flagship at their Mall at Millenia in Orlando.

The Miami City Commission approved the Worldcenter project in 2008, when it was meant to be a mix of hotel, retail, residential and office space totaling 11 million-plus square feet, as reported at the time. Plans right now are retail-heavy, though the former Miami Arena site might be developed by the MDM Group as a Marriott Hotel and convention center.

Related to Add 690 Condos in Twin 'Brickell Heights' Towers

Quote:

Plans for the first two towers call for a total of 690 residential units and approximately 85,000 square feet of retail space. The towers will range in height between 529 and 549 feet. A parking garage will be adorned by a mural created by artist Fabian Bruno.

The property sits between Mary Brickell Village and Brickell CityCentre. Related closed on the land in June for $32 million. A proposal called Premiere Towers was once slated for the site.

Related recently celebrated the virtual sellout of 450-units at nearby 52-story tower SLS Brickell, which will soon break ground.
