Yet not one brewery was there to represent Miami. I think it really makes Miami look bad that we have the biggest market in the state and still can't get a good craft brewery off the ground.

Funny, I live in Tallahassee and was thinking the same thing. They just opened up a new microbrew behind my place here, and I was wondering when South Florida would get some places. Atlanta has a bunch too. I think a micobrew might not appeal to the Heineken and Corona tourists on South Beach and Brickell, but Midtown or somewhere West would be a great spot.

Tequesta Brewery in Jupiter is pretty good but they're on the wrong end of SoFla. Also, the demographics of Tampa are similar to Miami and yet they have Florida's best brewery in Cigar City.

Also, for that last 17 years or so, The Abby on South Beach has served up some great craft beers. Sadly, they have added windows and expanded in size.

According to Bizjournals, the county could soon study the possibility of incorporating West Kendall. The boundaries of the city would be Bird Rd, Kendall, Krome and the Turnpike, which would give it a population of 116k based on NYTimes Census estimates, making it the third largest municipality in the county after Miami and Hialeah.

Kind of weird borders. But I guess thats kind of the issue with that area. Its just a giant amorphous blob without any real landmarks or natural borders. For example the new Baptist West Kendall Hospital would not be in the new West Kendall (its on the south side of Kendall dr). Making the South boundary Killian or maybe 120th would seem to make more sense. Or just go all the way to 152nd and include the Tamiami airport area. Probably better for the tax base. You could create 50 small cities out west or 1 big city. Each has advantages and disadvantages.

What would be the advantage of 50 small cities out in the west? Would they act as barriers against suburban sprawl?

No real advantages, just psychological ones that people seem to like smaller geographic cities that are "closer to the people". A smaller city probably has a better chance of actually being voted into place by its residents. People don't like sharing their cities with "others". Larger cities have larger resources to handle bigger problems but may not pay as much attention to the minutia of something like a speed bump being wanted on some residential street or a stop sign being down (in the real world a behemoth government like Miami-Dade County actually does a better job on small scale things like fallen street signs and potholes than most small cities do).

Anyone know what's going up in Dadeland just north of Collonade? Are they finally building the other two towers?

I read somewhere that it is some apartment building. Smaller than the collonade towers if I remember correctly, more like 6 or 8 stories or something.

One of the Modera Dadeland buildings behind the Collanade towers looks topped out and the other is a couple of stories up. Here is a new tower coming to the South side of the mall:

Multifamily builder Morgan Group plans apartments across from Dadeland

Oscar Pedro Musibay
Reporter-South Florida Business Journal

Multifamily developer The Morgan Group and Invesco Real Estate have joined forces to buy a site across from Dadeland Mall.
HFF worked on behalf of the seller Dayco and brought Morgan to the table. HFF also worked with Morgan to secure development equity through the joint venture with Invesco, according to a statement.
The site is strategically located at the heart of the Dadeland Golden Triangle near the nexus of U.S. 1, Kendall Drive, the Palmetto Expressway and Metrorail.
“The development potential for the site, including residential housing to be developed by Morgan, is driven by the close proximity of major employment generators including Baptist Hospital System and the University of Miami,” according to the HFF statement. “Dadeland Mall’s recent 102,000-square-foot expansion highlights the strength of this location.”
The HFF team was comprised of Executive Managing Director Manny de Zárraga; Managing Director Matt Kafka; Directors Chris Drew and Jaret Turkell; and Senior Real Estate Analysts Maurice Habif and Jorge Portela.

Wait, which lot will this new tower be built on? Close to US1, or close to the Palmetto, the article doesn't really specify.

Closer to the Palmetto. I'm guessing the 7400 SW 88th ST property (6-story office building with the giant parking lot) or the 7440 SW 88th ST property (Comp USA). Dayco owned both lots.

Ah yes, those appear to be two of the few remaining lots (publix, but that's not moving anytime soon) that can be developed. It will be a nice addition to the dadeland skyline, it will be interesting to see the height and floor count and if it will have ground level retail and add to the urban theme of Dadeland.



I'm assuming phase 2 of the Dadeland tower center (that blue skyscraper closest to the palmetto is called Town Center One ) will not happen any time soon, or perhaps it has been canceled or called off forever. Either way, it would be nice to see a few more towers solidifying Downtown Dadeland skyline.

Wood Partners breaks ground on Alta Dadeland. It will have 12 and 9 story buildings to go on 72nd Ave behind the new Modera Dadeland that is already mostly up.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/wood-p...201705919.html

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) - Wood Partners, L.L.C, one of the nation's most active multifamily developers, has broken ground on Alta Dadeland, a $128 million mixed-use development with 431 apartment homes and 2,000 square feet of retail space next to the popular Dadeland Mall. The community is also within 2 miles of South Florida's largest employers, the University of Miami and Baptist Health South Florida.
"Alta Dadeland is within walking distance of the Dadeland Mall as well as Dadeland Station, a 350,000-square-foot lifestyle center anchored by Best Buy, Sports Authority and Target," said David Thompson, Florida development director for Wood Partners. "There are two Metrorail stations in close proximity as well."
The 3-acre community, located on SW 72nd Avenue in Miami, will include 477,117 square feet of residential space, 2,116 square feet of retail space and 663 parking spaces. Designed by EDI International, it will include two towers connected by a pedestrian bridge. Building One will be a nine- to twelve-story courtyard building with 312 residential units, and a six-story parking structure (hidden behind the tower residences) with an expansive, resort-style pool deck above it. Building Two will be a nine-story, 119-unit building.
Coastal Construction is the general contractor, and construction is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2015. Apartments will be available for lease in the second quarter of 2015. Invesco Real Estate is the equity partner, and HSBC Bank USA provided a fully underwritten construction loan for the project.

Does anyone know the name of the low-rises being built between this new development and the Colonnade? They should be near completion by now.
