FORT LAUDERDALE | Marina Lofts | 36 fl x 2 | App

Bjarke Ingels has a new project in South Florida on the boards:






Cymbal's envisions more than 1,000 rental apartments on New River site



Quote:
South Florida Business Journal by Oscar Pedro Musibay, Reporter
Date: Thursday, October 11, 2012, 2:41pm EDT - Last Modified: Thursday, October 11, 2012, 3:31pm EDT

Bjarke Ingels is the renowned architect Asaf “Asi” Cymbal has chosen to turn the former six-acre Cabi New River site in downtown Fort Lauderdale into a three-phase, 1,072-rental project. Each phase of the Marina Lofts project would have about 350 units and a total of 10,000 square feet of restaurants and 25,000 square feet of retail.

Two towers would rise to 36 stories, with the third building at 25 stories, Cymbal told the Business Journal. The project would take more than eight years to complete.

A key goal would be to connect the riverwalk to neighboring projects and incorporate existing businesses including Pirate’s Republic, formerly Shirttail Charlie’s, into the project as a mean to inject energy into the waterfront. Cymbal also plans to have a water taxi hub at the property, which he hopes will also add activity and life to the area.

Units would range in size from efficiencies to three bedrooms. “I like rentals. It also speaks to my own aesthetic,” said Cymbal, referencing the 350-square foot apartment that he called home during his time living in Manhattan. “I identify with the rental market.”

He added that rentals are also very appealing to the demographic that looks to live in downtowns. “Well designed efficient units appeal to the urban culture-demographic drawn to the artistic and downtown lifestyle,” he said.

Cymbal bought the Cabi New River site out of bankruptcy for $11.5 million. In February, he sold more than a half-block of contiguous parcels in the Design District for a combined $11 million to Dacra President Craig Robins, who is developing a high-end, luxury retail mall in the neighborhood. Cymbal paid $2 million for the $10.5 million note in 2009.

Cymbal said he hopes to be before the city’s planning and zoning board by the end of this year.

Bjarke Ingels Designs New Florida Building, Tears it in Half



Quote:
By this point, young Danish architect Bjarke Ingels has charmed just about everyone with every tool at his disposal: the denizens of New York with a jagged white pyramid rising from 57th Street, people who want to bike straight up to their 10th-floor apartment in Copenhagen. Now the industry's it-boy turns his attention to South Florida—where a pair of twisty condo towers are already planned for Miami—and unveils Marina Lofts, a 1,072-unit rental complex in Fort Lauderdale. While the renderings show what appears to be one giant corrugated building torn to bloody bits, Marina Lofts—if it's ever built, that is, as it needs $250M in funding at the moment—will consist of two 36-story buildings and one 25-story building, each with a mix of residences and retail space. Curbed Miami has a closer look.

I'm sure it's been done other places too, but this first brings to mind a project by Korea's Mass Studies firm. I love the way the outdoor spaces form from the break, particularly at ground level where it could be a giant block but is instead a pleasant walkway, though I do wonder how much it'd actually be used.

Assuming all this is built of course.

Tree of strife: Bjarke Ingels defends Miami project in whirlwind real estate tour



Quote:
Bjarke Ingels wants the public to understand that bold, urban architecture can create sustainable ecosystems. It is a principle that he is fighting for: Right now, the award-winning Danish architect is battling Fort Lauderdale, Fla., over his residential project, Marina Lofts, and the fate of a rain tree.

The 38-year-old architect gave a presentation Monday at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, the first of three consecutive starchitect-studded South Florida real estate events this week, where he discussed his firm, Bjarke Ingels Group, and its 12-year evolution from designing residential buildings in his native Copenhagen to the conceptually playful Marina Lofts.

Famous for his TED talk and a slate of awards for innovative design, Ingels is part of a growing cast of internationally-renowned architects making an imprint on South Florida. His New York City projects include Durst Fetner Residential’s pyramid-shaped apartment building on Manhattan’s West Side.

As part of Portman CMC, Ingels is going head-to-head with his former practice, OMA, the urban design team of Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, for the $1 billion bid to redesign the Miami Beach Convention Center. Portman will unveil a three-dimensional representation of its blueprints for the redesign on Tuesday, offering up Ingels and two colleagues for questions.

Later in the week, Ingels will attend the Terra Group’s groundbreaking ceremony of his curvy residential towers in Coconut Grove, Fla., the Grand at Grove Bayck.

The Marina Lofts project may be the most polemic of the three.

The uneven residential towers with Lego-like pieces built to create an opening that expands public access to the New River are considered by some as an important stamp of innovative design in floundering downtown Fort Lauderdale, while others oppose the project because it seeks to uproot and replant a nearly century-old tree.

The 998-unit rental building would offer units starting at $1,100, an attractive prospect in a market environment of rapidly-rising rental rates and a housing shortage.

The developer, Asaf Cymbal, a Brooklyn native and Vassar and UCLA Law graduate who also owns a restaurant and bar in Miami Midtown, said he interviewed at least 12 architects before selecting Ingels.

The site currently boasts a small marina and boat storage and a protected rain tree the developers plan to relocate to the southern end of the site, which they would donate as a public park.

Environmental activists and others oppose the project, saying it threatens city and natural history. Cymbal said he consulted with the world’s foremost arborists, pledging a $1 million bond on the tree surviving in its new spot.

After eight hours of public debate, the project prevailed at a recent meeting of Miami’s Planning and Zoning Board. The City Commission will vote either July 2 or August 20, Cymbal said.

What idiocy. How many centuries-old trees have been uprooted by the sprawl of this city, and how many more century-old trees might there have been 50 years from now if this city, and countless others in the U.S., had built up instead of out?

If this isn't NIMBYism, I don't know what is.

Hopefully it will get built. I like that 'crack' in the middle.

Watch Bjarke Ingels Explain His Split Design For Marina Lofts



Quote:
A few weeks ago, while architectural heartthrob Bjarke Ingels was in town for his whirlwind tour of his South Florida building projects, he gave a lecture on the design of his upcoming Marina Lofts apartments for developer Asi Cymbal. In attendance at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art was a group of Fort Lauderdale architects, urban planners, and city bureaucrat types at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art who swooned at the sight of his effortlessly tossed jet black hair, the sparkle in his eye, and his mastery of a t-square. In the lecture he focuses on the water-orientation of the project, the integration of the marina, the relocation of the rain tree to a new park, the practical rationale for the 'split open' design, and the very civic public promenade which will be a crucial neighborhood linkage and the centerpiece of the project.

The fate of Marina Lofts, which has inspired both passionate support and vitriolic opposition from many neighbors, is set to be decided August 20th, when it goes before the Fort Lauderdale City Commission in what will likely be a hell of a show.

Bjarke Ingels Marina Lofts Approved



Quote:
At 3 a.m. Tuesday, in a packed house of blood-shot eyes, developer Asi Cymbal and architectural superstar Bjarke Ingels' apartment development Marina Lofts was approved by the Fort Lauderdale City Commission, which is just about the most exciting thing to happen north of the Dade/Broward County boarder since the invention of shuffleboard. We kid, we kid! 'Where The Boys Are' was filmed there in the 60s. Anywho... Marina Lofts, is finally happening now. As a condition of the approval, it has been downscaled yet again, from 960 to 856 units. (It was originally over 1000) The Rain Tree will be moved, and placed within a beautiful new park , the Fort Lauerdale Riverwalk will finally be fully interconnected, and Fort Lauderdale will have a really iconic new piece of architecture.

Slowly the wheels grind towards a construction date...

Bjarke Ingels' Marina Lofts Towers to Go Condo, Partially



With other projects moving forward in Ft. Lauderdale it's getting noticeable that this proposal has yet to break ground.

I live close to here, and can tell you these building don't fit the cityscape of the riverfront or Fort Lauderdale at all. Bjarke Ingels should redesign this certain eyesore into something more like the Grove at Grand Bay.
