As South Florida’s construction boom continues to advance, developers are becoming more and more creative in their product offerings, incorporating notable brands with world-class design from the most renown architectural firms, exclusive amenities, lavish custom interiors from the most prestigious interior design firms, and most importantly – desirable locations with pristine views. In this article, YIMBY will look into four highly awaited, skyline-altering projects expected to break ground in the near future.
Plans have been filed for a mixed-use project at 1790 Alton Road in South Beach, Miami Beach. The scope of work includes a new construction building of 5-stories set to occupy an irregularly shaped 0.237-acre land parcel nestled between 18th Street and Dade Boulevard, beside an Office Depot supply store and across the street from the Kimpton Hotel Palomar South Beach. Plans for the 79-foot-tall structure calls for 34,679 gross square feet of space including 12 residential units, 2 distinct restaurants and 19 parking spaces. Finvarb Group under the Sobe 18 LLC is the developer and owner of the application, which is scheduled for review by the city’s Design Review Board on October 4, 2022.
The City Commission of Miami Beach voted 5-1 in favor of The Gardens at Lincoln Lane, a low-rise mixed-use development slated for South Beach that will comprise just under 130,000 square feet of Class-A office space, 25,000 square feet of street-level retail, and more than 425 easily accessible parking spaces. The project is designed by Brandon Haw Architecture, along with West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture, and includes a 6-story building on a 0.9-acre lot at 1680 Lenox Avenue, and an 8-story building nearby on a 1.1-acre lot at 1080 Lincoln Lane North in the Lincoln Road District. The Gardens at Lincoln Lane is a joint venture between Starwood Capital Group, Integra Investments and The Comras Company, and the project now moves on to the November ballot, which will seek voter approval.
On July 20th, this past Wednesday, the Miami Beach City Commission voted 5-1 to move forward with the redevelopment plans of the former Deauville Beach Resort site at 6701 Collins Avenue in North Beach, Miami Beach. New York’s Related Companies, the development firm behind Hudson Hards and Deutsche Bank Center led by Stephen Ross, is leading the redevelopment of the property and has released the first glimpse of the proposed project designed by legendary expressionist architect Frank Gehry with a conceptual model unit presented at the commission meeting. The mixed-use project is to be Equinox-branded, and would comprise a 175-key high-end hotel and 150 luxury condominiums spread across two towers. Miami Beach residents are up next to vote on the fate of this project, and will be asked to approve zoning changes for increased height and density on November 8, 2022.
Lincoln Road Property Owner L.P., a joint venture led by an affiliate of Starwood Capital Group, Integra Investments and The Comras Company, has responded to a Request for Proposals (RFP) from the City of Miami Beach with plans to lease a pair of surface parking lots and develop The Gardens at Lincoln Lane, a low-rise mixed-use development that will comprise just under 130,000 square feet of Class A office space, 25,000 square feet of street-level retail, and more than 425 easily accessible parking spaces. The project is designed by Brandon Haw Architecture, along with West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture, and will occupy a 1.1-acre lot at 1080 Lincoln Lane North and a 0.9-acre lot at 1680 Lennox Avenue in the Lincoln Road District.
