If you think that's bad, check out this new $500M interchange we are building 7 miles down the road.

There are many other forms of transit being developed in Miami. But a quick glance at the metro Dade region on Google Earth tells you that the car is still king and will be for generations to come.

Unless we can change that. Everything starts with a voice and a vote. I'm certainly not going to stand around while we are given flashy renders of projects that don't even have sidewalks wider than a person, while cars have huge rights of way.

It's sad that FDOT endorses these projects. This is the agency that is supposed to care for all people, not only drivers, or car owners.

Jeez! That's like your worst traffic nightmare!

I hated the interchanges of the LA metro region already, but that Miami stuff is really badass.

I feel so sorry for you. Long live European urbanism!

I'm glad you don't - and that you're not an urban planner


Boston is great without traffic nightmares. It's one of the last urban and attractive places in the States.

USA is already determined by cars - people rarely use pavements there because of suburbanisation. If they do not walk, interchange is not really a problem as a barrier.
Problem will be, when gas market will break down. But let us hope It never happens


If you want to know what will happen If it breaks and how to prepare for that, watch for example this:



Miami is just taking another costly step which might cost even more than It will now. It's called making situation even worse

After doing lots of research on new urbanism, I'm starting to doubt whether it's even a movement that's mature enough to fulfill what it is trying to accomplish. First of all, DPZ for the most part uses an architectural style that is nothing more than a cheap, watered-down copy of classicism. This is not within the framework of what even they advertise. Second of all, if you even look at the street patterns of Kentlands or many other "new-urbanist" developments, they are still highly irregular. Althrough streets are connected to each other and cul-de-sacs are rare, the streets usually have curves and the blocks are irregular. This creates what looks and feels like a mechanized design, nothing more than, one again, a cheap, watered-down version of the suburban sprawl which they criticize. I think they really must rise to the challenge of eliminating all traces of sprawl urbanism if they want to be successful.

Revealed: Renderings Of Piero Lissoni's Unnamed Condo Project




Quote:
In a super-dramatic transformation, developer Lionheart Capital and Italian designer Piero Lissoni are turning the former Miami Heart Institute on Lake Surprise in Miami Beach into a collection of luxury condos and "villas". Although preliminary, very 'Google Sketchup' looking renderings were dug up months ago, sleek presentation-ready imagery hasn't really been released until, well, now. What you're looking at is the building that's there now, an ugly-1980s era conflagration of architectural travesties, but so dramatically altered that Piero has created a rather stunning architectural success. The dungheap-cum-David has yet to be named.

Miami Herald Building Won't Be landmarked, To Fall For Resorts World Towers



Quote:
After a daylong and drama-filled public hearing yesterday, the city of Miami's historic preservation board decided to decline historic designation status to the Miami Herald Building. The building has been at the center of a heated controversy for months over its historical merit, getting wrapped up in the feud over anti-casino advocates and preservationists like the Dade Heritage Trust and Malaysian casino giant Genting that wants to building a giant resort on the site. To everyone at the meeting this is either a ringing victory for progress, the end of an ugly building, and a vote for the economic future of the city over its not-so-historic past, or a slaying damnation of everything that Miami has built up over time, its architectural history, and the end of the Miami Herald's grand legacy.

Herzog & de Meuron Design, Of All Things, A New Condo Tower



Quote:
Jacques Herzog & Pierre de Meuron, the swiss superstar design duo, will soon have three - count 'em, three - monumental buidings in Miami. First, of course, was the parking garage that needs no explanation: 1111 Lincoln Road. Second is the currently under construction Perez Art Museum Miami. And third, according to exMiami, that forum where anonymous but shockingly in-the-know Miami development types sound off, will be a condo tower called Jade 4 in Sunny Isles Beach. The building is 649 feet high, with 56 floors, and 224 total units. The Landscape Architect is (who else?) Raymond Jungles, and the architect of record ADD Inc.

Zaha Hadid's Miami Beach Parking Garage Approved



Quote:
At its 11/20 meeting, the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board approved Zaha Hadid's landmark Collins Park Garage. It's a grand architectural statement for a sleepy corner of South Beach.

Miami's Tallest Building-To-Be Will Be Called Panorama Tower



Quote:
1101 Brickell, which at 849 feet tall will be Miami's tallest building when finally finished, has been named Panorama Tower according to exMiami. Back in June, in an interview with Miami Today developer Tibor Hollo disclosed the building had come back from the dead and construction would begin before the end of the year. The building had crashed and burned, metaphorically speaking, in the Great Recession. Then, last month Hollo told Daily Business Review in another interview about something else that site work had begun on the tower.

Either 80 or 74 stories (we've seen conflicting reports), it's entirely residential, and designed by Kobi Karp.

Hello Herzog & de Meuron, Here's A Little More Of Jade 4





Quote:
Joining the bombastic ranks of condos developed by Donald Trump and a muffler-shaped tower designed by Porsche, master swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron have designed a condo tower for Sunny Isles Beach. Oh boy, who'd have thunk "Herzog & de Meuron" and "Sunny Isles condo tower" would ever be in the same sentence together? Well, people, they are. It's called Jade 4 and exMiami has been making the tower's preliminary plans public at a suspenseful drip. Two elevations came yesterday, and today - surprise! - comes the site plan and plans of the residential floors.

Carlos Ott Designs Two More Lux South Florida Projects




Quote:
Developers PMG hired Carlos Ott, the starchitect who's doing a couple o' luxury projects for the Related Group, to do a couple o' more for them. (fyi, he's the guy that did the Bastille Opera in Paris, officially making him a starchitect to all us little people) Ditto with the interior designers, Yabu Pushelberg, who are doing BrickellHouse and One Ocean. The first, called ECHO (all caps, how modern!), is on the "last new construction waterfront piece in the Aventura area" according to a press release so nicely deposited in the Curbed inbox. The second, called Sage Beach, is on 2101 South Surf Road in Hollywood Beach, just a wee bit of a hike south of the Broadwalk. They're both sleek, modern, glassy, luxurious, and waterfront. Sage Beach, with only 24 units - all blinged out - boasts rooftop terraces, private elevators, really nice appliances (we're talkin' Subzero, Meile, and Wolfe here), valet, a beachfront infinity pool, and 300 feet of beach access.
