Shopping Center & Office Tower in The Works At 3000 Biscayne?

Quote:
A mixed-use retail and office project could be in the planning stages at 3050 Biscayne Boulevard.

Crescent Heights, the company that owns the land, posted renderings of the new development on their website. A caption under the rendering cryptically refers to 343,000 square feet of retail, along with 180,000 square feet of new office space (an existing office building on the site is about 90,000-square-feet.)

The developer controls nearly the entire block, or about 4.6 acres of land. They bought a 1.5-acre site at 3000 Biscayne last October, and already owned the adjacent office building at 3050 Biscayne.

Technicolor Tower of Lights Will Crown a New Silicon Beach



Quote:
Developer Michael Simkins' recently-announced Miami Innovation Tower—which local media has been sloppily characterizing as a 'giant LED billboard' planting a stake in the desolate, long-neglected Overtown/Park West neighborhood—will be the centerpiece of a seven million square foot megaproject. The new urban city center will rival the biggest construction undertakings Miami has ever seen, and the project's designers at SHoP Architects say technology is the driving idea, who are well practiced in NYC megaproject building. (See SHoP's Atlantic Yards and the Domino refinery redevelopments.)

If Simkins and SHoP see their vision realized, the Miami Innovation District will be a 4-square-block, high-density Miami version of California's Silicon Valley.

"It's about the idea of investigation, research, knowledge transfer," says Bill Sharples, the principal-in-charge of the project at SHoP. The designers of the Innovation District are "thinking about the commercial growth of Miami," as an almost entirely residential building boom of condo towers accelerates all around them. More affluent residents now means more demand in the tightening office market next.

[...]

An array of towers will be linked together by this swiss-cheese-like aerial 'green roof'/amenity deck platform. The centerpiece, of course, is the 'Innovation Tower,' which is not an LED Vegas-style 'Celine at the Coliseum' rectangle in the sky. According to how Sharpies describes the end result, it will be more akin to the Eiffel Tower on a very chill Bastille Day, or maybe a cross between the InterContinental Hotel's LEDs and the Miami Tower's, about 15 blocks south. The 'observation deck' that Curbed skewered is actually an elevated winter garden, and the lighting system is still being designed, but no, it likely won't just be plain old LEDs.

Good that they thought of urban integration with the base of the buildings. Not sure about the "architecture" (or what that's called) yet though.

Unfortunately, the runways for Miami International Airport point directly at downtown so unless someone wants to spend $20B+ building a new airport, Miami will never be Dubai. Plus, Miami is the cultural antithesis of Dubai.

So I think this practically means that even though Miami already has a larger skyline than Los Angeles, Miami will never have a larger skyline than Chicago. Personally, I doubt the latter scenario will happen, primarily because of the reason about its airport.

I do not intend to incite any "skyline wars" here.

Miami Beach Approves Gigantic Convention Center Hotel



Quote:
he gigantic Miami Beach Convention Center Hotel plans proposed by Portman Holdings, a 300-foot-tall tower that looks like a bad copy of the Fontainebleau, on steroids, in the middle of South Beach, have been approved by the Miami Beach City Commission. The approval was granted in the City Commission chambers of City Hall, which is across the street from the planned hotel and which—along with the rest of South Beach—will be rendered quite puny in comparison. This approval allows Portman and the City Manager to begin negotiations of the terms of the development and ground lease, which will then go to a citywide vote.

NYC X MIA

Under LeFrak & Soffer Families, Biscayne Landing Getting Ever More Gigantic, Renamed SoLeMia



Quote:
The megaproject formerly known as Biscayne Landing has a new set of developers, the family-run LeFrak Organization (don't worry, it won't be called LeFrak City) and Miami's Soffer Family, and is being renamed SoLeMia. The Wall Street Journal, unfortunately doesn't explain why it's being called SoLeMia. "South Le Miami," "So Let's Miami," "Soffer LeFrak Miami"? Anywho, like some other Miami megaprojects, SoLeMia is being funded at first the developers themselves, and not with loans. The $4 billion megadevelopment will have 4,390 apartments, 1 million square feet of commercial space, and two swimmable lakes, which will be quite the turn-around considering the project used to be a superfund site for being so polluted.

Argh, boy! Miami, finally build Art Deco again!

Can't see all those freaking bland, totally nondescript glass boxes anymore.
There are role models right next door!

Office Tower With Sexy Pleated Facade Coming to Sunny Isles



Quote:
The Grosskopfs have proposed a high-end (isn't everything, these days?) office tower across Collins Avenue from the Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles Beach which will likely be approved by the city commission, reports the Next Miami. Designed by Arquitectonica, the 17-story tower will have a glass facade made of lots of acute triangles and will be called Corner House. Manuel Grosskopf has said the tower will make Sunny Isles Beach a "true live, work, and play community" which comes off as a rather elitist thing to say although it is sort of true. The people who work in the city now, the maids and concierges, probably can't afford to live there, and the people who can afford to live and play there have nowhere within the city limits to put their fancy offices. Now they will.

Palm Tree-Inspired Solitair Tower Breaks Ground in Brickell



Quote:
Last week Solitair, a vertiginous new all-rental rental high-rise soon to shoot up in Brickell courtesy of developers, ZOM and AIG Global Real Estate, broke ground. The ADD Inc.-designed, 50-story tower will include 438 residential rental apartments and over 7,500 square feet of ground-level retail. A recent press release mentions that the building's architecture is inspired by the "Majule palm tree" (think they meant the Medjool Palm, which isn't a native, just FYI). Solitair's jagged fašade accurately resembles the palm's patterned trunk, and will stand out in the Brickell skyline. The interiors, however, which supposedly draw from the same concept, are "urban, cool," and grey: not very palm-like or tropical. Since Solitair will neighbor the highly-anticipated Brickell City Centre, you can bet apartments will be an easy sell. Solitair's opening is planned for late 2017.

One Brickell City Centre Approval Could Pave The Way For More Supertalls

Quote:
Taller towers could be in store for downtown Miami, following the Federal Aviation Administration’s decision to approve Swire Properties’ One Brickell City Centre last week.

A height limit that had restricted towers in the area to 1,010 feet is being lifted to 1,049 feet.

Swire had initially proposed to build a tower that reached 1,111 feet above sea level. After negotiating with the FAA, the height of the proposed tower was reduced to 1,049 feet, which the agency eventually approved.

During negotiations, the Miami-Dade Aviation Department informed the FAA that they were considering increasing the height limit over parts of downtown Miami from 1,010 feet to 1,049 feet, helping to clinch the favorable decision (TNM will publish the revised height atlas soon.)
