    I hope it’s rentals…I noticed that construction had stopped on the “Beer Garden” a while back…something must be going on

    A group led by Alex Vadia had purchased the lot a while back and planned to build the beer garden to hold them over. I believe someone then came in and offered them more money so they sold it which is why the construction of the beer garden stopped.

    I remember thinking how cool this looked when I was younger. Now I think it could be way better. This city’s standards have really risen when it comes to the design quality of many big projects. We have designs by the likes of Zaha, Koolhaas, Snohetta, Herzog & de Meuron, and Bjarke Ingels to compare them too.

    I think the architectural quality of this building boom is much higher than that of the last.

    I’m making broad generalizations, of course.

    Agree, but that Flatiron design looks just as fresh as it did in 2005.

    Related bought it for $25 a square foot.

    Let’s see if Related keeps the original design, if not then I hope they go for something more similar to 1100 Millecento than to Icon Bay.

    The purchase price amounts to about $25 a sellable, square foot based on existing permits, Allen told the Business Journal Tuesday.

    implies that they are keeping the design

    From the Daily Business Review:

    Carlos Rosso, president of Related’s condominium development division, said his company is analyzing the feasibility of the approved project.

    Until recently, Related wasn’t planning on buying the site because apartment operator Equity Residential had it under contract, Rosso said. But Equity Residential decided not to close and reached out to Related to buy the site for the same price the apartment developer was going to pay.

    Rosso said Related is acquiring development sites at the rate of one every six months.

    It seems like Equity Residential did an about face and is flipping every Miami project they got into…. Met 3, element and this.

    NEW Infinity II will contain:

    -132 hotel rooms
    -16,755 SF of restaurant space
    -3,174 SF of retail space
    -450 residential units

    The hotel will be operated by a trendy brand that is already known in Miami.

    The original approval for Infinity II in 2005 consisted of:

    -589 residential units
    -21,450 of office space
    -11,568 of retail space

    Related won’t be using the inherited site plan approval obtained under the city’s former zoning code for the Infinity II condo project.

    Instead, Related plans to redesign the project to meet the criteria required under the city’s revised zoning code, dubbed Miami 21.

    “It is our understanding that the project is going to be coming in as of right under the Miami 21 code,” said Luciana L. González, assistant to the director of the Miami Planning Department. “In other words, they are redesigning it and submitting under existing regulations rather than using their vested rights.”

    González said her department hasn’t seen any plans yet.

    “design by Philippe Starck”

    hopefully better than his job at the Miami Beach SLS, but then again one can’t help but compare the Miami Beach SLS to his spectacular Delano across the street. Sometimes you can never quite live up to your best work.

    Hip SLS hotel brand Downtown Miami-bound?


    Months after opening the SLS Hotel South Beach, is the company behind the hip hotel eyeing Downtown Miami?

    That possibility has been rumored around town for weeks now, showing up recently on the forum and Curbed Miami website. According to the sites, the hotel would be attached to a new condo project by The Related Group at 1300 S. Miami Ave. near Brickell Avenue.

    The developer bought the site last year for $18.5 million.

    Representatives for The Related Group and sbe, the hospitality, real estate and entertainment company behind SLS, had no comment Tuesday.

    The arquitectonica design looks very similar to Icon Bay – except that it is taller at 52 floors.

    Brilliant advertising by SLS Brickell:

    Is that sarcasm? Brilliant? Unfair housing advertised at a bus stop doesn’t seem brilliant to me. Seeing as how the people who it’s unfair for will be staring at while those for whom it’s meant won’t ever see it.
