Fifteen Group Signs Covenant To Allow For Permitting At 1836 Biscayne

Ffiteen Group continues to move forward with the permitting process for a new apartment tower above a historic church at 1836 Biscayne Boulevard.

Recently, the developer signed a covenant with the city that would allow an existing wall on the property to remain during construction, in what would be the public right-of-way.

The project includes the renovation of a historic church into a retail or grocery store, with a 352-unit, 38-story tower apartment building above.

The concept is awesome, but that garage floating above the church is just AWKWARD. Can they not find a better way to incorporate parking?

Yeah horrible architecture clash. It’s going to look disastrous. Why can’t a similarly look be built on top for a garage do we not know how to build with that look anymore?

Some people and developers might not have good taste but that is a norm around the world. The question is the taste of the people in the city who approve these early 2000’s style buildings.

very poor design, any first year architecture student can do better.

My professor in Design 1 would never have given this a passing grade. He would have flipped it upside down and told the class it looked much better that way, something he loved to do when a design was horrible.

Sometimes we’re quick to blame the architect, but it’s the client that wants something ugly.

The church should become a House of Blues.
