In 2010, Time magazine listed her among the 100 most influential people and Forbes magazine named her one of the most powerful women.

Recently, the City of Miami Beach chose Hadid to design its’ newest parking garage at Collins Park, across the street from the W Hotel where Hadid has a condo.

Hadid, who now oversees a staff of 300, first started vacationing in Miami 10 years ago. She said she looks forward to having her own design in a city she loves.

    Last night Dawntown tweeted about all the starchitects coming to town, and said “maybe Zaha.” He gave no response when I asked why he said she was a maybe. Is her garage project in trouble? We haven’t heard much about it since the news broke last year.

    Has construction started on this, or any of the new automated garages by ADD?

    I believe that the automated garage across from the Shelborne might already be operational… took long enough.

    [SIZE=28px]Zaha Hadid reveals updated design for South Beach garage[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=18px]A cutting edge, $18.5 million municipal parking garage in South Beach would tower over a public plaza created by closing off Liberty Avenue.[/SIZE]

    the design of the latest garage must be vetted further before contractors break ground.
    Several city boards, including the City Commission, must approve the design. A first presentation before the Historic Preservation Board could come as early as November. Construction is expected to begin in fall of 2014.

    Here is a rendering of the ADD robotic garage at 49 Collins Avenue. However, no construction yet

    The Hadid garage is true excellence in design.

    It is a shame that it will be on a relatively quiet side street.

    Also note: the executive architect is a local firm named Berenblum Busch on Brickell Ave – never heard of them.

    This project is set to appear before the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board on November 13th.

    The project was approved by the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board at the 11/20 meeting.

    Miami Beach commissioners today approved moving forward with the garage.

    However, they told the architect to change details in the design, including paint and railings.

    The commissioners claim that they receive a constant stream of complaints about Herzog & deMeuron’s 1111 Lincoln garage and its ‘unfinished’ look.

    Paint? Did they dictate a color? I heard talk of white. What are the other requirements?

    Somebody said something about a roof park. I can’t imagine that happening.

    Somebody said something about a roof park. I can’t imagine that happening.

    I believe that they wanted it white, but don’t remember exactly.

    The main goal of the commissioners was that they do not want to be receiving constant complaint from the public about an ‘unfinished’ look, which they claim to hear constantly about 1111 lincoln.

    One of them came up with an idea for a rooftop park, which then raised concerns about noise complaints (another problem at 1111 lincoln). They idea will probably be explored in the future.
