Chateau Considering Combining 600 & 700 Biscayne Into Mixed-Use Project

The owner of two prominent Miami blocks is considering combining them into a single large development.

In 2005, the sites were were approved for Major Use Special Permits, to be built by two separate developers. Chateau Group acquired both sites in later years.

A Chateau Group executive told TNM that the developer is now “re-thinking the two approved projects and planning to combine the two sites into a great true mix use development. We have conceptually studied several alternatives that profit the potential of this prominent/iconic location and all the great projects happening in the surroundings.”

The properties are next to Miami Worldcenter and near MiamiCentral, and could become the Biscayne Boulevard gateway to Worldcenter.

600 Biscayne was approved for a MUSP in 2005 that included a controversial tower behind the Freedom Tower called Freedom Square, designed by Luis Revuelta. Plans called for a 62-story, 650-foot tower with 685 condo units, 835 parking spaces, and a small amount of restaurant and museum space.

700 Biscayne was approved in the same year as a 68-story, 756-foot project called Paramount Park. The Arquitectonica-designed proposal called for 467 condo units, 120 hotel-condominium units, 818 parking spaces, and a small amount of retail.

This can be a very interesting development. 7th street between the two blocks would have to either be closed if they combine the lots or it would bridge over the street. The other interesting issue here is the FEC rail line running right through the 600 block creating a tunnel of sorts right through the tower as seen in the old renders. Looking forward to what they come up with.

As long as the architecture is as curvy, sleek and with spires. The last thing we want is another watered-down Worldcenter.

Worldcenter is MDM, no? If so, there you have it.

Mix use is the solution for next coming projects in the area if they want to continue to develop …… They can’t only depend on condos ……..

It’s a shame all these towers along Biscayne have or will have massive parking garages fronting 2nd Ave.

Well now you’ve got a nearly 10 block stretch of wasted grid as street life is dead with the street used as an alley.

The issue then is lack of imagination. How many garages at the Beach have commercial on the firs level? Tons. Your point is a good one though
