Office And Rental Towers Above MiamiCentral Set For Review

All Aboard Florida submitted long-awaited plans to the county yesterday for three ‘overbuild’ towers that will rise above the under-construction MiamiCentral project.

Plans call for two residential towers, each about 500 feet tall, along with a shorter office tower. In total, 800 rental units are planned in the first phase, along with about 200,000 square feet of office.

A robotic parking garage is planned below the towers, above the train station and retail space.

NBWW is the architect of the residential towers, while SOM designed the office towers. Zyscovich is an associate architect for all three towers.

Approval by a Dade zoning board is required, but the City of Miami won’t need to review the plans.

For what it’s worth, these towers are unimpressive. The whole thing looks like a 1950s urban renewal development. NBWW and SOM were the architects for the Fontainebleau Tresor Tower and Southeast Financial Center respectively, but it’s like most their recent work is mediocre. I bet Zyscovich insisted on boxes.

Nothing like this has ever been done in Miami and all you’re concerned about is how “cute” these rental towers aren’t in your opinion.-

Neven been done before? Please tell me you knew downtown had a station, tracks, and FEC passenger service until the 1960s.

This project is going take downtown Miami to depths that can now only be imagined.

Remarkable project; unremarkable architecture. The scope and importance of this project makes the relative blandness of the architecture all the more confusing. Maybe it’s for logistical or practical reasons. In the end, the connectivity and development this adds downtown easily overshadows any shortcoming on aesthetics. I just wish it did both.

Completely uninspired disconnected floating towers on podiums. Yeah it has to be a podium of some sort because of the station but they could be integrated somehow. A lot of the new built environment in Miami is done cheaply, like the endless painted CBS towers, and this is no exception. Look at any new train station in Europe. It’s embarrassing and demeans Miami and the concept of transit.
