It was designed by Foster + Partners and the hotel portion of the development was designed by Koolhaas. Here's what the Koolhaas half of the project will look like:

mybrickell Still Has To Go On Its Karim Rashid Acid Trip



Quote:
Ladies and gents, buckle your seat belts and make sure arms and legs stay within the condo at all times. Oh, and be sure to stay well hydrated, because now that mybrickell, the first condo tower to top off in Brickell since the crash, has topped off, things are going to start getting really psychedelic. Renderings of the Arquitectonica and Karim Rashid-designed building show public spaces decked out in a rainbow of solid colors, a pool with more pink, orange, yellow, and purple than blue, a bright orange mail room, and a baby blue lounge, which actually looks rather subdued compared to the rest.

Bal Harbour Beach Club Getting Giant Replacement



Quote:
Since the sale of the Bal Harbour Beach Club, Curbed has lamented the impending loss of Bal Harbour's grand lawn was designed to connect the ocean to the bay. Now, the Beach Club's site is going to be built upon by developers who plan a large, blockish glass condo tower designed by Arquitectonica according to renderings from exMiami. Although the building doesn't shy away from its bigness, and it doesn't exactly scream architectural originality, the architecture does seem to acknowledge the triumphant nature of its location at the end of a great symmetrical lawn, and of Bal Harbour's grand and graceful urban design.

Massive Plans For Biscayne Landing Could Not Be More Boring



Quote:
Since coming back from the graveyard of megaprojects that never got built, Biscayne Landing seems to be on a quest to be the biggest and most boring megaproject of them all, according to the most recent plan modifications published in the Biscayne Times. Instead of just one car dealership near the Biscayne Boulevard entrance, they're now doing four. The last remaining lake will be paved over. Big box stores will cluster on the other side of the project, and many apartment towers similar to the two already there will populate middle.

Old Infinity II Site Is Getting An SLS Hotel By Philippe Starck



Quote:
The Related Group is doing something entirely new for the former Infinity II site in Brickell, despite having fully approved plans for, umm, the tower that would have been called Infinity II. And that 'something new' is a condo tower compliant with the new Miami 21 zoning code as well as a 132 room hotel according to news sources. But wait, there's more! We hear word over at exMiami that it's going to be an SLS Hotel, and it will be designed by that king of postmodernism, Philippe Starck.

North Miami Beach's Abandoned Marina Is Getting Condos



Quote:
A marina on Biscayne Bay, abandoned since the real estate crash, is finally getting un-abandoned and - to the envy of every other marina's eye - redeveloped as Marina Palms, with two condo towers and every imaginable maritime amenity a skipper could want.

The condos will be nice, of course, with features like solid core doors freestanding tubs, and Subzero appliances, but the real winners are the boat owners. However, with 112 slips for boats up to 90 feet long, as well as direct access to Biscayne Bay (and Biscayne Boulevard) the marina will have oodles of amenities for the boats, like wifi and cable TV, a yacht club concierge, butlers, a marina store, and a large promenade.

Developer Asi Cymbal Wants You To Name His Next Building



Quote:
Asi Cymbal, the developer behind projects like Bjarke Ingels' apartment wonderland in Fort Lauderdale, is already dreaming of his next project, but by gum he just can't decide on a name. So, naturally, Asi came to Curbed Miami for help, and we are coming to you. Curbed Miami is holding a contest to name Asi's new building. The project's old name, Museum Village, just didn't work on, like, so many levels. So, Asi needs a new one, and this is where you, dear reader, come in.




It's going to be a mid-rise commercial building designed by Enrique Norten and TEN Arquitectos at 112-130 NE 41 Street in the heart of Miami's Design District. The ground floor will be luxury retail, with three floors of parking, three floors of offices, and a rooftop restaurant and event space.

How about "Another Ugly Box?"

Also, I wish the weather was cold enough in Miami to wear clothing like the people are in the render.

Zaha Hadid's 1000 Museum Will Be Announced ASAP



Quote:
Miami Condo Investments has heard that the new Zaha Hadid skyscraper, which will be called 1000 Museum will be formally announced next week. However, they reported this on Saturday, which totally means they could be talking about this week, which means Curbed is holding its breath in anticipation for the official press release of the biggest thing to happen in Miami since pink flamingos to land in our inbox.

Here's what it looks like now:



The views from this location will be amazing since it faces the biggest skyline in North America that nobody knows about, Sunny Isles Beach (most of the buildings in the background are over 500 ft. or 150 m tall).

Hints Dropping About New SLS Hotel



Quote:
Grainy drawings of the Related Group's new SLS Hotel tower in Brickell were revealed on exMiami, showing an Arquitectonica-designed slab of a building with a textured balcony design reminiscent of Related and Arquitectonica's other recent project, Icon Bay. A floorplan shows rather standard looking, even smallish, units and a hallway, which is rather odd. Is the SLS not going to be a luxury property? All of Related's purported "luxury" projects have private elevators these days.
