Met Square Is Finally Getting Built, With A Condo Tower On Top



Quote:
Met Square, originally planned as a commercial component to the Metropolitan Miami condo towers on that tippy tip of downtown Miami where the Miami River hits the bay, died a quick death in the crash. Now, like every other zany plan to build big or go home, it's back, and it's even bigger. According to exMiami, the project, design by the firm of Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates, has been revived and supposedly will have a 1,700 seat theater beneath a 570 room hotel and, get this, a 41,000 square foot restaurant.

Tibor Hollo To Develop Villa Magna


bryansereny.com

Quote:
Tibor Hollo has decided to develop Villa Magna after all on 2.5 acres of waterfront in the Brickell neighborhood, but this time he is adding a hotel to the apartments.

The property at 1201 Brickell Bay Drive will have about 400 units instead of 787 and a hotel with between 180 and 200 suites, he told the Business Journal. The residential towers will face the water and sit at either end of the property, with the hotel in the middle.

Hollo had recently listed the property for sale. He said CBRE had until the end of November to take bids, but they were not what he and his partners were looking to get. New York-based partner Corigin Real Estate Group is a partner in the site. "We gave them [CBRE] until Nov. 30," Hollo said. "We got some pretty fancy bids but my partners decided that was not enough so I said, 'I will develop it.'"

Hollo said it could take 18 months to get the necessary approvals for the revised project. The original Villa Magna had two residential towers.

Starchitect Zaha Hadid to design first skyscraper in Western Hemisphere

World-renowned architect Zaha Hadid will be designing her first skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere, The Real Deal has learned.

Developer 1000 Biscayne Tower, which is managed by Gregg Covin and Louis Birdman, confirmed her commissioning today.

Hadid, who was born in Iraq but lives in London, recently designed a new parking garage in Miami Beach’s Collins Park neighborhood.

The planned downtown Miami tower is on the site currently occupied by a BP Station at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard across from the American Airlines Arena.

Some of Hadid’s notable projects include the BMW Central Building in Leipzig and the London Aquatics Centre for the Olympic Games.

Related Tapping Arts Group For ICONBAY



Quote:
The Related Group and the National YoungArts Foundation are partnering to bring programming into Related’s new condominium projects, they announced Monday. “We are constantly looking for fresh ways to revitalize Miami’s urban core through art, which I’ve always felt is one of the most important ways to express our vision for living,” said Related CEO Jorge Perez. The programming will begin at Related’s ICONBAY project at NE 28th Street and Biscayne Bay. That’s a few blocks from the Bacardi building, which the YoungArts building acquired earlier this year. Frank Gehry will be overseeing the redesign of that property.

The Miami Worldcenter Project Keeps Getting Bigger



Quote:
According to exMiami, the owners of the planned Miami Worldcenter megaproject have picked up two more pieces of land in their quest for world domination. Already having caused a big brouhaha when they snagged Grand Central Park, they are now said to be the purchasers of the recently sold Grand Central Nightclub across the street and the former Camillus House site at 726 NE 1st Avenue. And the Worldcenter real estate shopping spree shows no signs of stopping. We can only speculate at how big this project will eventually be.

Although still one of the most desolate areas of downtown Miami, the Worldcenter land and its immediate environs have a big, big future, including of course the Worldcenter itself, that new Zaha tower about a block away to the east, and the new All Aboard Florida train station about a block away to the south.

Watson Island's Island Gardens Megaproject Back On


http://exceptionalpropertiesonline.c...ens-Miami.aspx

Quote:
According to city government people via SFBJ, Island Gardens - the $400 to $640 million megadevelopment of condos, mega yacht marinas, restaurants, and two hotels on the now-empty parts of Watson Island - is pretty much funded. Flagstone Group (the developer) is finalizing deals with equity partners and rent to the city, and has buttoned up lawsuits that had once threatened the project. Construction of the mega yacht harbor, by contractual agreement with the city, will begin before this September.

Brickell CityCentre Releases A New Rendering, Refined Design



Quote:
The most detailed rendering yet of the massive Brickell CityCentre megaproject has emerged on exMiami, showing a substantially more resolved and detailed design than the last iteration. They've made major progress on facade details, including a shifty-plane look on the lower floors with strips of light between the cracks. The canopy over the mall is a little more realistic looking, and the tops of the towers have coordinated profiles. Oh, and they've got a new website, reflecting the project's slightly tweaked new name: brickellcitycentreconnect.com.

1000 Biscayne Tower’s Likely Impact on the Neighborhood


http://www.miamicondoinvestments.com/

Quote:
Last month, it was announced that world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid has been appointed to design a luxury skyscraper in a neighborhood of Downtown Miami know as Park West. The residential high-rise, known as 1000 Biscayne Tower, will be developed by Gregg Covin, the developer behind Ten Museum Park, and Louis Birdman. The planned project will be erected in what is the current location of a BP gas station which neighbors Ten Museum Park at the intersection of Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 10 Street. Sales information is expected to be released during the first half of 2013.

There always seems to be a sense of excitement surrounding the announcement of a new development in Miami and the news of 1000 Biscayne Tower was no different. Not everyone, however, shares the same sentiment. Residents in the immediate area are not always thrilled about the inevitable noise, traffic congestion and their views potentially becoming obstructed due to the new construction. Taken yesterday evening, the picture above shows not only the site of the BP gas station but also its neighboring condo developments – 900 Biscayne Bay to the south and Ten Museum Park to the north. Due to their proximity, it should be clearly discernible that views in each high-rise from units closest to 1000 Biscayne Tower will be significantly affected.

It's pretty crowded in the neighborhood and views could be threatened. That poses a design challenge for Hadid but I have the feeling she is uniquely capable of twisting a tower away from tall neighbors.

Biscayne Landing Back On Track



Quote:
North Miami's biggest single piece of real estate, the formerly-superfunded Biscayne Landing land, appears about to come furiously back to life, according to the Biscayne Times. It was one of the biggest stalled projects of the real estate crash, with just two residential towers built out of the thousands of units planned, but new or revived attention is coming at it like mad. Developers Oleta Partners, "most prominently represented by Michael Swerdlow" are looking at filling in most of the lakes, adding a park around the large lake to the north, building a hotel, leveling the old landfill, and adding a spine road through the center of the property. A bunch of big box stores will be built on the property's southern half, and eventually 3400 new residential units will pop up all over the place. Oh, and look out for a luxury 'vertical car dealership' right at the project's Biscayne Boulevard entrance.
3400 units! That's going to be a HUGE development!

Midtown Walmart Rnderings

Midtown Boulevard "retail backside buffer":


Conventional awninged entrance:


Quote:
In an effort to garner increased support for its store in Midtown Miami, Walmart late Thursday submitted redesigned plans to the City of Miami that buffers the store with independent shops and restaurants along Midtown Boulevard.

The 16,000-square-feet of retail would line the ground floor of one side of the Walmart store, providing a more interactive streetfront for pedestrians that maintains the character of the Midtown Miami project. This additional retail building would be a joint venture between Walmart and Midtown Opportunities, the developer that owns the majority of the undeveloped property at Midtown.

Midtown Opportunities would develop the liner retail bulding and lease the property to retailers and restaurants. The plans were part of an amended permit application Walmart submitted to city staff for approval.
