Meanwhile, up in Ft. Lauderdale...

Ending 15-Year Stalemate, Icon Las Olas Is Going Up


42 story time capsule to rise?

Quote:
The epic 15 year conflict between Related's planned Icon Las Olas condo tower and the Stranahan House next door, sometimes an epic battle between development and preservation, and other times a simmering cold war while waiting for the economy to recover, is finally over.

According to someone from Related, Icon Las Olas will likely "move forward this year", and they've been working with Stranahan House people to come up with a plan that works for both camps. Of course, the Stranahan-sensitive changes could just be the tip of the iceberg, with 15 year old designs on their hands. (A Curbed reader kindly pointed us towards SkyscraperCity for them) Anything could happen when Related starts to update that enchilada straight out of the '90s.

Brickell's Second SLS Hotel, Styled 'Lux' Will Look Like This



Quote:
With Related's first SLS Hotel in Brickell thoroughly under construction, they're wasting no time in planning a second 'SLS'-tagged hostelry, this time within the two-three towered Brickell Heights megaproject and co-developed with the Allen Morris Company (yes, that Allen Morris that donated that park). The boutique sized SLS Lux Hotel (read: small but plenty of fancy stuff) according to renderings sent along by project reps will still have lots of stuff for guests and, if the name is any indicating, will probably be more luxurious too.

All Aboard Florida Wants More Land For Downtown Mega Station



Quote:
Not very much has been heard publicly from All Aboard Florida lately, presumably because they've been working on all the behind-the-scenese stuff it takes to build a railroad. And now we're learning that this behind-the-scenes stuff includes negotiations with Miami-Dade for the possible acquisition of even more land adjacent to the many acres they currently control for their 'Grand Central Station' according to exMiami.

These lands include what are currently a VIP parking lot for the Mayor and whoever and a daycare center for the county government (ok cool) and next to that a small park known as "the oval" (not cool). AFF could use the land for a parking garage or maybe a bus terminal, or they would put the bus terminal somewhere else "as part of the deal."

Turnberry Plans 52-Story Zapata Condo Tower In Sunny Isles



Quote:
Turnberry, owned by the Soffer family, will launch sales later this year for a 52-story condo building called Turnberry Ocean Club in Sunny Isles Beach. Construction will begin in early 2015.

Turnberry Ocean Club will be built at 18501 Collins Avenue, on what is currently a beach club. A sales center will open on the site this fall, before moving across the street to make way for construction. 150 units will be offered for sales, with prices ranging from $3 million to $22 million.

All Aboard Florida Reveals Downtown Miami Station Renders



Quote:
All Aboard Florida had a press conference this morning at the future site of their Downtown Miami train station revealing the design by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Zyscovich Architects. Read on for highlights from the show:

1) As we already knew, the tracks will be elevated 50 feet above the street, entering the station along a viaduct. Cross streets will remain open, with retail below the soaring tracks.

2) The project encompasses two main sites: the 9 acre transportation hub and the 2 acre Overtown development.

3) There will be "Significant transit oriented developments around our three [South Florida] station sites", meaning Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach are getting more than just stations too.

4) The two Miami sites will encompass nearly three million square feet of residential, commercial, office, retail, parking. Most or all of the parking will be at the Overtown site, but the two will be linked together.

---

9) The renderings show three towers (two taller and one shorter) above the station itself, with a very basic shape of at least one even larger tower to the south. The Overtown site is not included in the renderings at all.

West Palm's New Convention Center Hotel Will Be... Modern



Quote:
That traditional rendering of the Hilton West Palm Beach, a building with eves and towers, is as dead as the Dodo. The Related Group project, in the context of West Palm Beach's pretty traditional Mediterranean Revival architecture. The architects Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe sent over two renderings of the much, more modern design.

Renderings Surface For Brickell CityCentre's Metromover Station, Pool Decks



Quote:
A Curbed reader writes in to say he spotted renderings and plans of the improved Brickell City Centre Metromover Station, the pool deck of the Centre's East Hotel, and details of two residential entrances at ArquitectonicaGeo's website. Oh, and a master plan of the quite extensive amenity deck.

The hotel pool will be tucked under the side of the building, which is raised very high on piloti. Sure, the old-style Metromover car is front and center of the station's render, but otherwise the design details of it and the rest of the elements seem to line up very well with other glimpses that have appeared so far.

The dust may be finally settling on a location for the new home for David Beckham's Miami MSL soccer team:

Here's The New Bayfront/Museum Park Beckham Stadium Plan



Quote:
Here it is people! The press conference for David Beckham's second big stadium unveiling (remember the first?) is happening NOW. We're updating as new info develops.

The plan is to fill in the old FEC railway boat slip and use that as the site of David Beckham's soccer stadium. Check out Curbed archives to catch up. Here's what's new:

1) Apparently it would eat into Museum Park, cutting much of it off from Biscayne Boulevard, but the water-end of the former slip would become parkland, and that park land would continue through Parcel-B, the site behind the AmericanAirlines Arena, all the way to the port bridge.

2) Including Parcel-B and the former slip-bottom, would give the area a net-gain in park land of 20 percent.

3) The plan seems to make the stadium as low-profile as possible, which is nice if you're a condo dweller worried about losing your water view, but still creates a barrier for those on Biscayne Boulevard.











Since the stadium would be eating into valuable park space, the developers cleverly minimized the impacts in these renders. Unfortunately, a 25,000 seat stadium is not so easy to hide...

Chetrit Group Seeks To Build Four 60-Story Riverfront Towers, Marina



Quote:
Megaproject ahoy! Chetrit Group wants to build four sixty-story towers of 1,449 condo units total, a marina, a 300 room hotel, offices, commercial, retail, marina, and a river walk on two-ish blocks of Miami River-fronting property in the western fringes of Brickell, right smack next to I-95. It's perhaps the biggest sign yet that Miami's urban core is moving west, and picturesquely up the Miami River.

The site is bordered by SW Seventh Street, SW 2nd Avenue, and SW Third Avenue, land that currently happens to contain Finnegan's River and ubiquitous landscape architect Raymond Jungles' office. They're planning to apply for a 'Special Area Plan' for the project.

Miami Worldcenter Quietly Reveals New Website, Renders



Quote:
Miami Worldcenter has gone public with updated renderings and a new website. And by public we mean the website went live and somehow exMiami found out, with not a press release or launch party yet in sight. The new renders show an updated master plan with a multilevel mall along the project's eastern side, a new jumble of towers, a tall rotunda-atrium thing made of suspended walkways, Bloomingdales, amenity decks, the convention hotel on the far end, etc. The site has a presentation with more info (PDF!), annnnnnnnnd, nails a groundbreaking of 'late 2014' for the whole shebang.

New Publix Tower Going Up In Coral Gables



Quote:
The grungy old Publix supermarket on Le Jeune Road is being replaced by a brand spanking new store with a parking garage and 18 story residential tower, and here are the renderings, via exMiami. The tower appears to have a rather generic Mediterranean revival design, with rooftop pool, and little more than a pergola disguising the top level of the parking deck from the world to see.

Gloria & Emilio Estefan Building Party Tower Near The Arsht



Quote:
The broad press coverage last week that latin music King & Queen Gloria and Emilio Estefan are closing their Bongo's Cuban Cafe at the AmericanAirlines Arena was, surprisingly eclipsed Estefan news perhaps equally as big, if not bigger: their opening a new restaurant. Oh, and it's going to be in a skyscraper that the Estefans are building too, on land they own a few blocks north west of the Arsht Center. It doesn't have a name yet, so for now we'll call it Estefan Tower.

The tower will have the new restaurant, called Estefan Kitchen, along with a parking garage, a hotel, banquet halls, and a rooftop swimming pool. A rendering show a tapering, slightly 1111-esque tower, almost half of which is a parking garage and the other half super-glassy with floor plates that have that contemporary shifty look. The whole shindig is in the permitting stage now, and "we're looking into the zoning issue to see how many floors we can build" says Emilio.
