Hard to believe that as the NYC Flatiron neared completion, only 30 people lived in Vegas.

Nice. Miami needs more designs like these, because most of the recent residential highrises there look a bit boring.

Back on again!

With City Landswap, Flatiron Park Is Out, Flatiron Building Is In



Quote:
The Brickell Flatiron Building, a wedge-shaped residential tower designed by Enrique Norten, is back. Developer Mallory Kauderer is in negotiations with the City of Miami for a complicated landswap deal on the site of the long-delayed project that would allow him to expand it to the full block, giving him thousands of additional residential square feet. Sadly, the resurrection of the building means the death of Kauderer's never-quite-finished Brickell Flatiron Park.

Although Kauderer promised to build a temporary Raymond Jungles-designed park on the site while he waited out a moribund condo market, after lengthy and suspicious delays (including something having to do with the sprinkler system) the park was never completed and construction was eventually abandoned. Then, wham-bang, the real estate doldrums ended a whole lot faster than anybody thought, all those thousands of empty condos were gobbled up, and Kauderer decided it was a good time to revive this building of his.

The Flatiron Park Is Donezo, And So Is the Building Apparently



Quote:
Developer Mallory Kauderer - he of the Brickell Flatiron non-park and that weird landswapping scheme with the city of Miami - has a totally new plan for his little triangular wedge of Brickell, and he's not telling anyone much about it. Here's what we do know, thanks to Miami's master of corruption investigation, Al Crespo:

At last week's Planning, Zoning, and Appeals Board meeting, Kauderer's rep said they want to do a smaller, 46 story tower, on the north block, including the Allen Morris Park space, while giving over the south block, site of the abandoned Flatiron Park, to a very grand single story retail structure. Possibly with a 30 foot high ceiling. Yes, Virginia, Flatiron Park could be lost not for a Starchitect designed skyscraper towering to the heavens, but for a fancy Starbucks. No word on the architect yet. It may or may not still be Enrique Norten.
This plan seems to be spiralling into the ground. Let's hope the city refuses to allow anything other than a tower to replace the park...

Bad news for fans of this spectacular Enrique Norten design for Brickell Flatiron: rumor has it the new architect will be local firm revuelta architecture.

Here's a sample of their work:



Ain't it just great?

Money, most likely. The Ten Arquitectos design was hatched at the peak of the condo boom in Miami when prices were getting astronomical. Even though the city is humming with new towers (63!) prices have come down to earth and margins are tight. I'm still hoping the shape of the site will result in a better than average design anyway.

Another crappy same-old balcony-covered tower that looks exactly like everything else around it. Seriously.. how much more funny can it get that you check all of revuelta's firm projects and they all look alike.

Park saved after swap fro property next door. So new address, new name (most likely), and new tower.

Flatiron Park To Stay Park After Swap



Quote:
Added to the very short list of shit that City of Miami officials do right, according to the Crespogram Report, they are swapping with developer Mallory Kauderer the 3,000 square foot southern half of Allen Morris Park for the entire 8,000 square foot Flatiron Park site. (And probably some additional FAR credits, but whatevs. Skyscrapers are cool) This means the city is losing half of a pretty, but tiny, and little used, pocket park for an even bigger park that's already been designed by Raymond Jungles and built by a Kauderer, and is fast becoming an important public space for the Brickell area. Brickell Flatiron Park is and an actual honest-to-goodness permanent park! And Mallory will be building his new condo tower next door.
Good news for park lovers but terrible news for the Flatiron Tower.
