Grand Central Station in Miami?


Miami Intermodal Center, an already under construction transportation hub near Miami International Airport.



Florida East Coast Industries wants to build a “destination” train station in Miami in the vein of Grand Central Station in New York, the South Florida Business Journal reported. “Everything is on the table,” Husein Cumber, who is spearheading the drive for passenger service in 2014 from Miami to Orlando, told the Miami Commission. FECI currently owns nine acres in downtown Miami west of NW 1st Avenue between NW 1st Street and NW 8th Street. Construction could begin next year.

Terra Group Launches Grove At Grand Bay Development In Coconut Grove



Quote:
Terra Group has unveiled its plans for the Grove at Grand Bay project in Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood. The project will include a 20-story pair of towers including 96 residences. Design firm Bjarke Ingles & Associates and landscape architecture firm Raymond Jungles will collaborate on the complex. “Within the next three years, the area will be completely redefined, and Grove at Grand Bay will play an important role in the new experience,” said Pedro Martin, CEO of Terra Group. Grove at Grand Bay will be located on the site of the former Grand Bay Hotel. Construction is slated to begin by the fourth quarter of 2012, with a planned completion date in the third quarter of 2014. — Alexander Britell

Sunny Isles Beach Erupts With New Condo Developments


Regalia Tower in Sunny Isles, currently under construction

Quote:
Sunny Isles Beach in northeast Miami-Dade County is quickly becoming the epicenter of South Florida’s condominum boom, the Miami Herald reported. Six condo towers are currently being developed in the area, which represents approximately 15 percent of the more than 45 towers proposed through July 2012 in South Florida’s tri-county region. Another 530 luxury units are set to be built along the nearly 40 blocks along Collins Avenue, and more are expected to come.

Developers have purchased an additional four condo sites in Sunny Isles Beach, containing more than 580 units, all of which have been approved for residential towers. Further, an investment group has recently purchased the loan for a partially completed condo tower that has been approved to contain 134 condo units and 140 hotel rooms. If this pace of development continues, Sunny Isles Beach could see its total number of condos increase by more than 1,200 units

Related's Icon bay Makes Its Debut



Quote:
Remember that sticky situation in which the Related Group got a pretty sweet deal from Miami city commissioners for some primo formerly-public-road real estate in exchange for installing a public park beneath a tower? Well, here's the tower. And the park (underneath it). It's a big 40 story monolith (that's an architectural term, and a derogatory one) with 300 units. The whole place will be designed by Arquitectonica, with an as-yet-unnamed interior decorator.The park will be fenced in, and only open from dawn 'til dusk, apparently per the request of the "Edgewater Homeowners Association," an organization with which we are not familiar.

They're calling the building Icon Bay, which means it'll be one of the really fancy high-end Icon branded Related buildings like Icon Brickell or Icon South Beach, which is nice. It also means Related's got some high hopes for the neighborhood, which is still a transitional nabe despite the current proliferation of new condo towers here. So, that's nice too. So, it's a mixed situation, with Related extracting a high price to bestow an edgy neighborhood like Edgewater (get it? haha) with one of their oh-so-prestigious buildings.

Say Hi To The First New Biscayne Blvd. Tower Since The Crash



Quote:
Say hello to what could be the first new tower on Biscayne Boulevard since the recession started. A few days ago, news broke that a site at 3360 Biscayne had sold for a record amount on the corridor, not only because it's a prime location of future growth (the Design District, Midtown, Wynwood, and Downtown are all no more than a hop, skip, and a jump away), but the site comes with a fully approved, shovel ready design for a 16 floor, 127 unit residential tower with ground floor retail. Now we've got renderings! The design appears to present a pedestrian-oriented street facade, and has the height and density typical of recent construction on the boulevard.

Ski the sunny slopes of Miami!

Yeah, Miami's First Ski Resort Will Be Incredibly Sustainable









Quote:
How environmentally friendly can the world's largest winter sports complex - basically a giant freezer - be in balmy 95 degree South Florida? Well, try LEED Platinum on for size. That's the goal of the designers of Pelion Sunrise, now being proposed, which will be designed to max out the number of possible points in every LEED category. According to the Pelion Concept Design Report, the giant iceberg-looking building will actually be a green wonder, and a veritable encyclopedia of sustainable technologies and strategies.



The report throws down everything from a green roof that will have %25 more green land than the building takes up, to maximized permeable surfaces, tributary bioswales, biofiltration, oxygenation, multidisciplinary project delivery, systems integration, closed-loop greywater cycling, bioremediation, biogas production via anaerobic digestion, indigenous landscaping, urban agriculture, environmental art, syngas and biogas as fuels for on site gas-fired generators, solar cooling, electric vehicle charging stations, a robotic parking garage, indoor living walls, skylights, a waterfall feature that doubles as a cooling tower, and a shape designed to mimic the organic water-retention abilities of real glaciers and icebergs, etc., etc. Oh, and a don't eat the snow! It's made out of greywater too.

Inside the world's largest winter sports complex, the "winter wonderland" will include dynamic downhill skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, ice skating, and tubing, all in a picturesque wintery setting. There will be a skate park, go cart track, climbing maze, indoor skydiving (!), paintball, lasertag, a hotel, a lakefront boardwalk with restaurants, and, inevitably, plenty of shopping. Topping it all off, a rooftop restaurant will overlook the green roof, and the distant Everglades.

Brickell CitiCentre's Furious Construction Pace




Quote:
Swire Properties is by no means playing around getting Brickell CitiCentre, that multi-block, billion dollar megadevelopment filling up the center of Brickell, off the ground. Construction workers are at the site 16.5 hours a day, from 7:30 a.m. to 10 at night, including weekends. Here's a pretty groovy construction shot, from the 8th floor of mybrickell, that almost-as-interesting building under construction across the street.

Twisting & Twirling With Bjarke Ingels At Grove At Grand Bay









Quote:
As we've previously mentioned here and there, Bjarke Ingels, the debonaire young avant-garde-architect-of-the-moment is designing two condo towers in Coconut Grove at the site of the old Grand Bay Hotel, called Grove at Grand Bay. The buildings are being landscaped by (who else?) Raymond Jungles. With 12 foot ceilings, a slew of luxury amenities, and two twisting buildings that appear to dance together, taking advantage of the sun, or wind, or something, it all looks pretty gorgeous.

Much of Mr. Ingels' architectural oeuvre experiments with the way buildings are used, by doing things like putting a ski slope atop a garbage plant and incorporating bicycle ramps that go up to the tenth floor of an apartment complex. The first we saw of Ingels in Miami, and the only thing he's ever done here besides this, was a prototype of a glowing street that adapted to the traffic needs of those using it, at last year's Design Miami. So what if everyone thought that was just a glowing dance floor with an Audi on it? It was still an awesome idea.

the parkings of Miami seems great!! hehe

I remamber this article in the spanish newpaper El Pais:

Quote:

Un 'parking', icono urbano de Miami
El proyecto de Herzog & De Meuron vertebra una ruta por garajes de gran calidad arquitectónica

[A 'parking', urban icon of Miami
The project of Herzog & De Meuron vertebrate a route of great architectural quality garages]

El estudio suizo Herzog & De Meuron, y el arquitecto del Guggenheim de Bilbao, Frank Gehry, son autores de sendos parkings en Miami, y por tratarse de dos de las firmas más conocidas y de mayor éxito en el mundo, el hecho adquiere una dimensión arquitectónica inesperada. El lema podría ser: si no puedes con el enemigo, únete a él. Así es como han decidido actuar los urbanistas de Miami ante el uso masivo del coche particular como medio de transporte para desplazarse por la ciudad. Ya sea por las enormes distancias de un lugar a otro o porque la posesión y la utilización del automóvil es un gen del ADN americano, la realidad de Miami está íntimamente ligada a los ferraris y maseratis, al valet parking (servicio de aparcacoches), a las monedas de los parquímetros y a los atascos interminables. Sin embargo, la capacidad innata de los ciudadanos estadounidenses de convertir en oportunidad los problemas ha logrado situar a Miami como referente mundial de la arquitectura contemporánea en los garajes urbanos.

1101 Brickell Starts Construction


http://www.miamicondoinvestments.com...t-by-years-end

Quote:
Earlier this year developer Tibor Hollo (a guy that's been building things in this town for as long as anyone can remember) announced his stalled project 1101 Brickell, Miami's future tallest building, would begin construction at the end of the year. Well, continuing today's apparent Curbed Miami theme of previously stalled big name projects that are back on line, Hollo told the Daily Business Review, in an article about one of Miami's last Bayfront parcels, that site work has already begun on 1101 Brickell. (How's that for a run-on sentence?) That would mean late September or early October, three solid months before the end of 2012. The building was originally designed by architect Kobi Karp to be 80 stories, 849 feet tall, and entirely residential except for a retail segment at ground level, which is presumably still the case.

With City Landswap, Flatiron Park Is Out, Flatiron Building Is In



Quote:
The Brickell Flatiron Building, a wedge-shaped residential tower designed by Enrique Norten, is back. Developer Mallory Kauderer is in negotiations with the City of Miami for a complicated landswap deal on the site of the long-delayed project that would allow him to expand it to the full block, giving him thousands of additional residential square feet. Sadly, the resurrection of the building means the death of Kauderer's never-quite-finished Brickell Flatiron Park.

Although Kauderer promised to build a temporary Raymond Jungles-designed park on the site while he waited out a moribund condo market, after lengthy and suspicious delays (including something having to do with the sprinkler system) the park was never completed and construction was eventually abandoned. Then, wham-bang, the real estate doldrums ended a whole lot faster than anybody thought, all those thousands of empty condos were gobbled up, and Kauderer decided it was a good time to revive this building of his.

Bacardi Building Sold To YoungArts, To Be An Arts Campus By Frank Gehry



Quote:
October 3, Miami's iconic Bacardi Building, the former headquarters of Bacardi USA, will be handed over to YoungArts at a price significantly below market value, to then be converted into YoungArts' first national headquarters. Internationally acclaimed architect Frank Gehry has been retained to design a master plan that preserves the historic tower building and 'jewel box' annex while creating a "multidisciplinary arts campus and park."

Both the tower and annex will be preserved, except for minor interior alterations. A smaller office building just to the north will be replaced by a performance space of Gehry's design, with the surface parking lot behind it being turned into a park that connects with the current plaza and rear green space.

Of the new performance space, Gehry said to the New York Times "It's not going to be a building that's architecturally published in any way," meaning the attention that his projects usually get, "But it's a place I want to go."

Grand Central Park Goes For $35 Million to Miami World Center


http://miami.curbed.com/archives/201...rld-center.php

Quote:
Well, previously published rumors of Grand Central Park's demise have proven true, folks. The old Miami Arena site, currently being used as a park that was meant to catalyze change in the surrounding neighborhood, has been sold for a whopping $35 million to a major stakeholder in Miami World Center: Art Falcone of the Falcone Group.


Miami World Center

How could one of the most abysmal corners of downtown Miami - a place where pretty much nothing was happening at the beginning of the year, except for the park - fetch such a fantastic price? Well, it's wedged between two upcoming megadevelopments: the new FEC downtown Miami station, which was announced earlier this year, and the huuuuuge Miami World Center, which has seen renewed life since the announcement of the station. Oh, and this empty piece of land is zoned for 1,400 condos. Yeah, a hell of a lot of condos in a spot that all of a sudden became a very prime location, between two big new projects, with great transit access. And now the even bigger MWC will have direct access to almost-high-speed intercity rail.

-Just In:

Grand Central Park staying for Two more years: http://miami.curbed.com/archives/201...more-years.php

Quote:
Grand Central Park wants everyone to know it's A-Okay. Despite being purchased by a new landlord, the park has a lease for the next two years, and that's being honored. Grand Central Park will remain Grand Central Park. As far as what will happen in the more distant future, Brad Knoefler, the man behind the park's creation, says:

"We always knew that something big would go there, but we still are hopeful that whatever happens we can keep a portion of the green, community space," he added. "This is perfect site for a public private partnership and we are open to work with the new owner to explore that option."
