MIAMI | Baltus House | 14 fl | U/C

Baltus House, Miami

Related Reveals Unika Replacement, Baltus House




Quote:
A long ass time ago (okay, eight months) Curbed Miami got a tip that the Related Group had picked up the old Unika condo tower site for little more than a song, complete with approvals and entitlements for the tower formerly known as Unika. All that we knew at the time was that Related planned to adapt the plans to "current market conditions" and build the damn thing. Eight months later, with plans suitably adapted by architects Cohen Freedman Encinosa, this is the result: Baltus House. Curbed Miami found renderings on both BuzzBuzzHome and exMiami.

They named it after a furniture company, but not in a retro way. >>
Okay, so they're jumping on the "Hey let's get a fancy furniture company to do our interiors and use that for advertising" bandwagon (see Le Parc) but what else is new, or not? The building is upscale, but not super-upscale. The building still has windows and is not entirely floor-to-ceiling glass. The balconies have been glassed though, and made long and contiguous, taking out that silly pattern on the facade. The original 60s era office building hasn't gone anywhere.

Does anyone else think this building looks like the stern of a cruise ship?

Belatedly, Crane Appears At Site Of Related's Baltus House



Quote:
A few months behind schedule but just in time for the cash-hemorrhaging crowds descending on Miami, a construction crane has finally been installed at the site of the Baltus House project, Related Group's 167-unit condo that will be completely decked out with Jorge Perez's fave furniture maker: the Baltus Collection of Spain. (Perez hired Baltus to do the interior design of one of his penthouses.)

OMG Desertpunk, Our SSC Friendly Family World Moderator and Update News and Great City and Skylines Photos Friend,
I though this Condo tower would never be built so close to Channel 10 Headquarters and all those Office buildings Up and down the Biscayne Blvd there, but there is a Beautiful New redone Publix Supermarket just up the street from there I say 4 Blocks or so, and a very expensive single family neighborhood to the east that have lots of Nimbys , " No No Buildings , ( We don't want to look like downtown Miami ), keep the developers out of here, No Towers , nothing over 15 Floors, we want to keep the peace here , No developers " LOL

Let's Go Knock down Nimbys with Miami Cranes !!
