Panorama Tower Construction Finally Lurches Forward



Quote:
After what seemed like aeons of site prep work, demolition, and more site prep work, developer Tibor Hollo's formerly tallest-Miami-tower-to-be, Panorama Tower (ousted by the announcement of One Brickell City Centre already, although it will still be tallest between their completions), has finally began construction, according to exMiami.

Possibly explaining the slow start, the 830 foot tower seems to have had a lot of changes. The architect was changed from Kobi Karp to Moshe Cosicher, it will now include a 208-room hotel, 100,000 square feet for medical offices, 50,000 square feet of retail, and even an observation deck on the top floor.

Marriott At Miami Worldcenter Gets Big Design Update



Quote:
Along with a submittal to enlarge the Miami Worldcenter special zoning 'atlas' (by which we assume they mean 'area') to include the Marriott At Miami Worldcenter megahotel and convention center on the former Grand Central Park site, developer MDM Group included plans for the new hotel, according to exMiami. And here they are. The form of the structure has been changed from rectangular with tentacle-like things swooping out to semi-circular with a hole in the middle, and is 'subject to change' again, since they aren't actually seeking approval for the building's design yet, just for zoning to allow the building, or something.

Apartment Building To Be Built Around Enriqueta's Sandwich Shop In Midtown



Quote:
Three developers, namely Encore Housing Opportunity Fund, Adler Development, and the Fifteen Group are developing a luxury apartment building called Midtown 29, at the corner of 29th Street and NE 2nd Avenue, and wrapping (yes wrapping) it around arguably the best god damn Cuban restaurant north of Calle Ocho, Enriqueta's Sandwich Shop (Enriqueta's is really where those big trees at the center of the rendering are).

Condo Tower Coming To North Bay Village's Old Crab Shack



Quote:
On the north side of the 79th Street Causeway, at the site of a shuttered Crab Shack restaurant, and quite close to Shuckers, which used to be a neighborhood fave until that dock incident happened (has it reopened yet?), North Bay Village pols have given tentative approval for a 22 story tower called, very imaginatively, 1555 Kennedy Causeway. Maybe it's a working title. The building will have 127 residential units, as well as offices, shops, and restaurants, which could be kind of nice to walk to from Shuckers if they ever replace that damn dock.

Renderings Show More Of 40' Wide Edge On Brickell Tower



Quote:
Although we first got a glimpse of the Miami River-front Edge on Brickell condo tower to be, at 55 stories high and a mere (approximately) 40 feet wide, oh, about 7 months ago, renderings have been few and far between. But alas no longer, now that its website has gone live (h/t: BuzzBuzzHome), and with that finally a few decent views, along with floor plans showing how the wide, narrow slab is divided into three units per floor. 124 in total. The building will have a robotic parking garage, which was probably the easiest way and/or the only way to fit enough parking into the a 40 foot wide tower, and a bunch of other gizmos like electric car charging stations and a biometric entry system.

Lincoln Road's New, Supersized Gap Store Opens For Business



Quote:
Lincoln Road's big new Gap store had its grand opening last night, with Racked Miami on the scene. As they say, it's nice, which is totally what was expected considering its designers were the fabulous Touzet Studio. And we're not saying that because they bought Curbed a $28 steak when we did lunch a couple months ago. Haha. But the steak was delicious.

The focus of the building is at the corner, with its double-height space, oculus, radiated glass, and grand staircase. Curbed has been following the store, which is quite the architectural statement as far as Gap stores go, since the beginning.

Really Hot Condos To Replace Rather Plain Historic Building On Ocean Drive



Quote:
It's always a little sad to see an historic building be demolished, no matter how plain the building may be or how architecturally distinctive its replacement is (although one wonders how they're getting away with it in an historic district). The small art deco apartment building at 304 Ocean Drive, however, is plain, although it is well proportioned, and according to renderings dropped on exMiami its Luis Revuelta-designed replacement is a knockout.

Financing In, Construction On All Aboard Florida Could Begin Immediately



Quote:
If South Florida's new intercity passenger rail line All Aboard Florida sticks with a statement in a private company prospectus obtained by the Palm Beach Daily News, construction will begin immediately, or even... rest our beating hearts, has begun already. According to the Daily News "The bond prospectus says construction will begin as soon as the successful offering is finalized, which occurred Thursday." This is, of course, absolutely massive news, and Curbed eagerly awaits confirmation from the FEC.

Miami Worldcenter Officially Submits Plans To City For Review



Quote:
The reps for Miami Worldcenter, the megaproject soon to fill the barren moonscape between the Metromover Omni Loop and the Metrorail with skyscrapers, sent over some renderings with an announcement that plans for the development's first phase have officially been submitted to the city for review. Now the design, by Elkus-Manfredi Architects has to go up for design review and then to the Planning Zoning & Appeals Board, with any required revisions being sent back to Worldcenter.

Another big tower is coming to bustling Sunny Isles Beach:

Related And Dezer Announce Armani Condos In Sunny Isles

Although the project's been an open secret for practically a year, Related and Dezer have just officially announced their Armani-branded luxury condo project in Sunny Isles Beach, the Residence by Armani/Casa. The 60 story/260 unit project will be designed by starchitect Cesar Pelli and the Armani/Casa design studio, which is headed by the man that popularized big shoulders in the '80s himself, Giorgio Armani.

Another Publix Tower Coming, Now In Sunny Isles Beach



Quote:
Publix is planning yet another grocery store/condo tower combo, their second such proposal in a little over a month, in Sunny Isles Beach. This time, instead of placing a condo tower directly on top of one of its stores, as Publix is planning to do in Coral Gables, the tower is going next door. The 21-story, 357 unit residential tower will be designed by Kobi Karp, reports exMiami, and is undoubtedly more modern than its Coral Gables counterpart, with sleek and subtly-curved floor plates, wrap-around balconies, and waterfront views. The existing 32-year old store would be replaced by a 54,000 square foot shopping center with rooftop parking protected by a hatch-patterned metal trellis.

Grove At Grand Bay Reaches 7th Floor, Begins To Twist



Quote:
It's been a while since we last checked on the construction of starchitect Bjarke Ingels' Grove At Grand Bay, but since then the twin twisty towers in Coconut Grove have made significant progress in their dance towards the skies. The first three photos (above, courtesy of Facchina Construction and Smith Aerial Photos) are a few weeks old, while the last two were taken in the past few days. The north tower's floor slabs have been poured up to the fifth floor, while the core has reached the seventh, while the south tower's slabs have reached the fourth floor, and the core the sixth.

Behold the Deluge of Renders for Chetrit's Miami Riverwalk



Quote:
It was just a matter of time before renderings for the Chetrit Group's megaproject Miami Riverwalk were let out of the floodgates, finally giving the public a thorough glimpse of the future for the land next to the Miami River. And here they are. About half the renderings are courtesy of the developer and architect Kobi Karp, and half a la exMiami. Basically the design is what's been planned all along, leaving the shocking twists to a minimum. There's just a hell of a whole lot more of it to deal with.
