Miami Starchitecture

Enrique Norten Does The Design District





Quote:
This little model is a mixed-use office, retail, and restaurant building developer Asi Cymbal is working on with the starchitect-about-town, a man who's been designing oodles of buildings in Miami lately, Enrique Norten. Curbed went over to the Cymbal offices to take these pictures earlier today. The building appears to be divided into zones, with (we're guessing) retail at ground floor, followed by two parking levels enveloped in some kind of metal mesh, then three levels of office space flanking a shaded terrace, and a restaurant perched atop in a glass box.

Demoed Midcentury Beach Hotel Gets Rebuilt, Goes Condo







Quote:
This is the Monte Carlo, on Collins Avenue and 65th Street. It - or more precisely, a hotel somewhat similar to it - was built on this site in 1948 by architect Roy France, one of the masters of hotel architecture on Miami Beach. At some point between then and now the hotel was demolished and now it's being replaced with something new. Only, the something new - a condo tower - looks kinda like the old hotel. Well, that's the whole point. This is historic preservation, err, recreation, duplication, whatever, by architect Luis Revuelta in action. Oh, and as of a week ago, it looks like construction has hit the 5th floor.

Another Midtown Boulevard Walmart Rendering, Without Wally



Looks nice. Anti-Walmart activists are probably pulling for this result...

Brickell CityCentre Gobbling Up More Land



Quote:
Swire Properties is about to announce a northward expansion to their already-gigantic Brickell CityCentre megaproject, according to the admins of the exMiami forum, adding the block bounded by South Miami Avenue and Southeast First Avenue, from Fifth Street to Sixth Street to the project (bounded by the red rectangle, above). Yep, that's an entire block of 'Brickell Green Space', those two empty blocks that local urbanists were trying to save as a public park.

Whole Foods To Go It Alone At Met



Quote:
What once was a parking lot in downtown's days of urban blight, then became a neglected hole in the ground while new skyscrapers soared nearby, is finally becoming... a Whole Foods Market and parking garage, completing the Metropolitan Miami megadevelopment and making it indubitably official that Downtown Miami is now a land of over-coiffed yuppies. The only letdown? A residential tower designed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates, no doubt filled with more yuppies, was originally to top it, but got scraped according to SFBJ. So, yeah, that tower's not happening anymore.
Officially, the tower is 'on hold' after financing plans fell through. MDM may well replace the rental tower concept with luxury condos since the market for those is now going strong...or they can just leave it at that with only the supermarket.

Miami Herald

Quote:
Six years after condo crash, 100 new towers proposed

As unsold condo inventory from the last boom continues to dwindle, many new projects are on the horizon.


Regalia Sunny Isles Beach

Some six years after the South Florida condo market first collapsed, developers are proposing at least 100 new condo towers with more than 14,500 units in the tri-county coastal region of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach.

The number of proposed condo towers is expected to increase as several approved development sites from the last construction boom have traded in recent months to investors scouring South Florida for vacant land that permits high-density residential projects.

A factor contributing to the newest wave of proposed South Florida condo projects is the shrinking unsold new condo inventory. Less than 6 percent of the nearly 49,000 coastal units created in South Florida during the last boom remain unsold as of 2012.

The clearest example of the reduced developer inventory is in Greater Downtown Miami — the epicenter of Florida’s vertical condo crash — where about 850 new condo units are unsold out of pool of more than 22,200 units as of 2012.

At the current sales pace, South Florida’s remaining new condo inventory could be sold out by 2014.

Zaha Hadid's Biscayne Tower Will Be 706 ft Tall



Quote:
Okay, folks. For those just desperate for news, any news, of Zaha Hadid's new downtown Miami condo tower, we've got a little nugget for you. It will be 706 feet tall according to exMiami. That's nine feet shorter than the building to the south, 900 Biscayne, and about 119 feet taller than the building to the north, 10 Museum Park. So, the buildings in this section of the Biscayne Wall that are packed cheek-to-jowel together, like any self respecting New York skyscraper (Hello Manhattanization of Miami!) will also be of reasonably similar height.

Even though the project's massive three-block first phase is still in the early, early stages of construction, they're already thinking bigger, commandeering the entire block directly to the north between 6th and 5th streets. They've added a 46 story residential tower and amenity deck, along with more parking, and a connection to CityCentre's elevated shopping mall via an expansion of the department store over 6th street, basically making that street a tunnel under a rather cool department store in the sky.

An Addition For The Art Deco Versailles Hotel?



Quote:
According to someone very much in-the-know, King & Grove Hotels, the very swank and fairly new boutique hotel chain that operates the Tides Hotel on Ocean Drive, is working on the landmark art deco Versailles Hotel on 34th Street and Collins Avenue, making it their second Miami Beach establishment. This verifies a rumor that HotelChatter investigated a year ago. The hotel had been purchased by Joseph Chetrit, who has funded some of King & Grove's other projects, and additions and renovations to the structure were designed by architect Kobi Karp, who has renderings of the hotel on his website:

Miami Starchitecture

Towers Are Popping Up Left And Right All Over Miami


Faena house

Quote:
The last two months have been good months for new construction in Miami, with towers breaking ground from Fort Lauderdale to Brickell. A month ago (how did we miss this?) the Lord Norman Foster-designed Faena House, the residential portion of Alan Faena's Faena District project, quietly broke ground. Units feature wrap-around terraces modeled after Argentinian 'aleros' that connect the various rooms within each unit. Construction of the hotel portion of the project, in the neighboring Saxony Hotel, began last year

Miami's Seaport Could Look Like This In 30 Years



Quote:
This is what the southwest corner of PortMiami could look like if PlusUrbia, a local design firm, wins a competition to master plan the port's future commercial district, planned to be a World Trade Center. After announcing an ambitious master plan for the future of PortMiami to much whoop-de-do that would a bunch of skyscrapers, a megayacht marina, hotels, retail, and residences, the powers-that-be at the port quietly began an invitation only competition to find an architect to design a master plan for the WTC area.

The PlusUrbia design, which they call 'Port Side Miami', with its towers clustered together, gradually decreasing in height from the center of the zone, a large marina, and small public parks and plazas scattered around, is one of the finalists. The other finalists remain a mystery.
