Just curious. How many parking slots per unit and where do they put it, all in the basement? So the foundations must go very deep. I was just thinking if they're close to beach the watertable must be high so it must be expensive to build basements. Is this correct?

I understand the RE market in S. Florida is quite overheated. What number of the 383 is u/c as opposed to paper projects? And what is the prognosis for all these buildings will they get built considering the market and int. rates?

Most have parking above ground in podiums that are hidden from view by being wrapped in loft apartments (see the podium of 1101 brickell below). Usually it is one parking space per one or two bedroom apt, 2 spaces for a 3 bedroom and so on. Some provide more but I think that is the minimum allowed by law. The only time you ever see underground parking in Miami is in areas with Height limits like Coconut Grove where they dont want to waste any above ground space on parking.

The number actually UC is in the high 80's or low 90's now. Many projects do seem to get announced that then they are never heard from again, but what has been happening is the land is quickly sold and a new project is announced in its place, or a different developer uses the exact same plans on the same site but gives it a different name. Brickell Commons became Brickell Citi Centre, Ice & Ice2 became Element, Ocean Sound became Mei...

I would have to agree on what Dave said.The appearance is sloppy.Color is horrble and what is with the puzzle kind of shape?I would never allow Tampa to build that building.But all the other projects look great

I actually like Lima. I love the way Miami is busting out of the American pinstripe-suit mode.

This isn't quite my favorite for Miami, but okay, Miami is a tropical exoct5ic city, so...

^ That's probably one for Dubai that mistakenly was placed in the Miami file.

I was thinking more along the lines of Shanghai or maybe Hong Kong. If it was Dubai it would be 1500 feet tall and be shaped like fish or something.
