    Curbed Miami has construction photos of the restoration at the old Lincoln Theater, future site of H&M. There are also pictures of the restoration at the old Saks, which is slated to become a Forever 21.

    H&M has opened a pop up store at 1669 Meridian (one block off of Lincoln Road) in the interim.

    Also, currently under construction on Lincoln Road: A showroom for Tesla Motors, scheduled to open this summer.

    This marks the return of a car dealership to Lincoln Road – the old Lincoln Road car dealerships left decades ago.

    The owner of 1001 Lincoln Road is proposing to demolish almost the entire structure and rebuild with elements of the previous historic structures that once existed at the site. Originally housing a theater, almost nothing remains of the original structure which now is the site of a Gap store.

    Apple had proposed building a new store at the site last year, but was rejected by a City of Miami Beach board.

    The striking design that is being proposed is designed by architect Touzet Studios.

    1111 Lincoln developer Robert Wenett is the front runner to win approval to build a retail/garage complex on Lincoln Lane, currently municipal surface parking lots.

    The proposal would cost $59 million, with completion expected in November 2014.

    All per David Smiley – there should be a Miami Herald story soon.

    More on the Lincoln Lane parking lot proposal, from the Miami Herald. Decision to be made in July:

    The group’s $59 million proposal is designed by Snøhetta, the Norwegian firm selected to design the new National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion at the World Trade Center. The plan includes 36 apartments, 76,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, 360 parking spaces and 42,000 square feet of office space. The two main buildings pull back from the street to allow for walkways, green space and a stand-alone restaurant.

    Yes, folks, it’s true: Dylan’s Candy Bar will open at 801 Lincoln Road in late fall/early winter…

    Once the weather starts cooling down, head over to the former Ghiradelli location to indulge in a fantastic array of confections at the new Dylan’s Candy Bar. When asked why she lighted upon our delectable city as the first Southeastern spot for her nationwide concept, Dylan Lauren, Founder and CEO of Dylan’s Candy Bar and daughter of legendary designer Ralph Lauren, told us: “Miami is one of my favorite cities. It’s vibrant, creative, hip and is a destination that people from all over the world come to visit. These were all the characteristics I was looking for when searching for the new location to expand my brand.”

    The 3,400-square-foot spot will feature outdoor seating, a Color Your World bulk candy display, Lucite stairs loaded with real candy, and a café with enough treats to even make Willy Wonka blush. The only savory treats we see on New York’s menu are pizzas, but the offerings also include dessert pizzas, ice cream sundaes, frozen hot cocoa, “fun-due,” s’mores, a make-your-own sandwich bar (fluffer nutter, anyone?), and–drumroll, please!–cocktails. Strawberry Nerds mojitos and coffee cake martinis all around!

    Miami Beach development decision delayed after complaints
    By David Smiley
    The Miami Herald

    A major Miami Beach redevelopment project has been thrown into limbo because a losing bidder said city officials illegally held a closed door meeting to evaluate competing teams’ proposals to lease and develop city-owned land near Lincoln Road.

    The City Commission was expected to vote this month on whether to partner with one or more teams to build shops, apartments, restaurants and cultural venues on three city parking lots.

    But interim City Manager Kathie Brooks yanked the vote off the commission’s July 18 agenda after Lincoln Road Development LLC, which was ranked fourth of four, said Miami Beach’s selection committee should have discussed the competing offers in a public meeting.

    The Lincoln Theater/H&M project looks absolutely beautiful. It will also house a 100 Montaditos restaurant.

    The Sterling Building (Books and Books) restoration and expansion is another Shulman designed project which was approved last year. However, the owner recently obtained an extension for the permit citing difficulty obtaining financing.

    The owner of David’s Cafe building had applied for design review a few months back but pulled it – still now word on what is replacing it.

    Art Deco Meets H&M

    Transformation of Original Miami Beach Cinema into H&M Retail Store is a Lesson in Historical Preservation[/FONT][/FONT][/LEFT][/FONT][/LEFT]
    [/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

    [FONT=inherit]


    MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Sep 06, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Construction is now underway to transform the legendary Lincoln Theatre in the heart of South Beach from a historical movie theater into a modern retail establishment that preserves the building’s storied past while creating a flagship commercial space. When construction is complete, the developer’s restorative approach and adaptive design will be a case study in how to redevelop a prominent historical movie theater and symphony hall as a retail destination while restoring and recreating its original glamor and glory from the 1930s new age of cinematography.

    Designed in 1935 by renowned cinema architect Thomas Lamb in the classic Art Deco style that defines South Beach, the 35,000 square foot mixed-use building is located on the pedestrian promenade known as the Lincoln Road Mall. It originally housed the movie theater, as well as medical offices and a pharmacy. It closed in the early 1980s and then was purchased in 1988 by the New World Symphony to serve as a performance hall, music academy and administrative office. When its transformation is complete in early November, it will house Swedish retailer H&M’s 30,000 square foot flagship store as well as a number of other smaller tenants including Swatch, Sabon, 4D Gelato and 100 Montaditos, a Spanish tapas and sandwich style restaurant with hundreds of European locations.
    Touring the site during construction provides a fascinating behind-the-walls look at the rigorous process of meeting the requirements of both the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board and highly desirable international retail tenants.
    “Taking down the walls is like peeling back layers of an onion,” said owner and developer Cliff Stein, president and CEO of Miami Beach-based Savitar Realty Advisors. “You discover vestiges of the building’s past and then the historical preservation board tells you what needs to be saved and what needs to be restored. The process is full of surprises.”
    Stein assembled a group of investors and purchased the building, which spans 150 feet of prime frontage on Lincoln Road, for $21.5 million in February 2010. While he says the price of historical adaptation far exceeds usual construction costs, he believes the return on this unique investment will be a multiple of the purchase price.
    Theatrical Vision
    The building has many stories to tell. During World War II, its owner donated the original aluminum marquis to the war effort, replacing it with a less expensive wood structure. Stein and his architectural team have replicated the original marquis in stainless steel.
    “This is one of the first examples of the very successful adaptation of a historical movie theater into a major retail facility,” said William Cary, assistant director of the Miami Beach Planning Department. “It utilizes many of the original design features for modern merchandising purposes. It likely will be published in architectural journals as a prime example of how to make a historical building work for modern purposes.”
    The protected features of the property include its signature facade on Lincoln Road, the original theater lobby and various elements uncovered during the construction process, including original water fountains, a mirror, coral rock wall tiles and a decorative lobby ceiling.
    Stein also replaced a blank concrete wall in the rear of the building along Lincoln Lane with glass, providing a public view of the interior, which has been designed to maintain the look and feel of a two-story movie theater. From the side, the end of the space re-creates the look of a proscenium. A LED mesh wall, extending from the auditorium ceiling to the ground floor below, conceals what was once the stage and will serve as a multi-media screen for H&M, reminiscent of the movie theater screen that once hung in that space.
    Stein is resurrecting the overlapping clamshell ceiling in the auditorium, with backlighting between each overlapping shell, replicating the original ceiling design of the movie theater.
    Even after eliminating the slab between the second and third floors in the original office building to better suit a modern retail environment, its theatrical and art deco heritage is revealed and apparent.
    “Good adaptive reuse respects a structure’s history – its story – while creating something altogether new,” said Allan Shulman, principal of the Shulman + Associates architectural firm commissioned to design the renovation. “The new design for the Lincoln Theatre proves that historical structures and commerce are complementary when a design is carefully conceived.”

    -Forever 21 is making speedy progress too. Most of the front scaffolding is down and you can see the interiors coming together through the windows. I’ve noticed a few details that don’t seem to be up to S+A’s usual standards of perfection, but hopefully that’s just during construction. Probably the construction architect’s (Kobi Karp?) fault.

    -Work is well under way for Scott Robins’ three story retail building on 17th street.

    -No visible action at Dylan’s, yet.

    -Oh, and I saw workmen doing something to the Carlos Zapata fountain on Washington the other day. It looked like they were taking it apart and cleaning it.

    -One of the stores advertised on the front construction walks of Lincoln Theatre is Swatch. Could they be opening a second Lincoln location, or moving?

    Is that everything?

    Sale of Lincoln Road properties sets record

    Interest from national retailers continues to drive up prices on Lincoln Road both for purchase and lease. Terranova becoming a major player in the next wave of the street’s development.

    BY ELAINE WALKER

    In a sign of continued rising prices for property on Lincoln Road, Terranova Corporation and Acadia Realty Trust paid $139 million in cash Tuesday for a three-building portfolio of retail storefronts.

    The deal is being billed as the largest retail acquisition in Florida during 2012 in terms of dollar value. The next closest was Vornado Realty Trust’s $132 million purchase in July of the 1100 Lincoln Road property that is home to Regal Cinemas and Banana Republic.

    The Terranova acquisition includes the properties at 801, 826 and 719 Lincoln Road, currently home to tenants including Score, Tiramesu, Spris, Fossil, Kiehl’s, Steve Madden and the new Dylan’s Candy Bar opening next month. At $2,300 per square foot, the purchase represents one of the highest prices paid for space on Lincoln Road.

    Sean’s scathing review of the Foerever 21 can be found here: http://miami.curbed.com/archives/2012/12/20/new-lincoln-road-forever-21.php

    I was not very impressed either when I went in, but they got a few things right.

    They get extra credit for using hurricane glass that is transparent during day and that will draw shoppers inside.

    Most architects in Miami fail at this and just settle for heavily tinted glass.

    Miami Beach DRB staff analysis of the proposed “Putting Club”

    STAFF ANALYSIS:

    The applicant is proposing to construct a new miniature golf course facility on the roof top of an
    existing parking garage. Approximately one-half of the existing roof-top parking deck will be
    converted from parking to a landscaped miniature golf course. The course, along with the added
    roof-top buildings, including a reception area, storage, restrooms, office, and bar are all located
    on the southern half of the garage structure. Parking will remain on the northern one-half of the
    garage at the roof-top level, separated from the golf course facility with a new wall comprised of
    open breeze block. It should also be noted that the northern part of the garage ramps upward
    from the level of the proposed golf course facility, and the existing office building located to the
    northwest of the parking garage and proposed golf course is a full story higher than the
    proposed facility.

    Staff is supportive with the concept of converting a harsh roof-top parking deck into a well-
    landscaped outdoor miniature golf course facility, and has no concerns with the proposed
    design, pending the final assurance that all life-safety and noise issues can be fully addressed.
    Staff has discussed concerns such as errant golf balls flying off the roof, and the applicant has
    made assurances that the course has been designed to direct balls inward. Such consideration
    is important as staff would not recommend in favor of safety netting surrounding the roof-top due
    to its adverse aesthetic impact.

    A few interesting projects that are currently in process –

    -The Carib Theater at 230 Lincoln Road is proposed to be rebuilt as a small four story shopping center with 62,000 sf. It was originally built in 1950 and designed by Michael DeAngelis and Roy France. It has been shuttered for 25 years.

    -The former Eastern Air Terminal (adj.Wings building) off Lincoln Road is proposed to be restored and rebuilt, with the parking lot converted into an outdoor seating area. However, the owners have proposed similar restoration projects in the past that were never built

    May 22, 2013 at 2:30 pm





    Recall the “victory” of the Miami Beach historic preservation board in preserving the Gap building and fighting off the Apple store.

    Today all that remains standing is a small portion of the front facade – the rest is demolished.

    The rendering shows that even that front corner will be demolished, so pretty much nothing is being saved:
