20-Story Office Development To Begin Construction At Former Triptych Site ‘As Soon As Possible’

A partnership of several developers have purchased the former Triptych site for $23 million and have announced plans for an office tower, according to the SFBJ and The Real Deal.

One of the new developers told the SFBJ that he was moving forward with the new office project as soon as possible, due to high demand for office space in the area.

An architect is in the process of being hired, the developer added.

The new office tower will rise 20 stories and have around 250,000 square feet of leasable space, or up to 400,000 square feet of gross space.

There will also be ground floor retail, along with a restaurant space.

Permitting will begin in 6 to 8 months, with groundbreaking in about 18 months.

TriStar Capital, Integra Investments and LNDMRK Development are the new developers.

Yes. It needs less cars. Build less parking, build rail, reduce car demand.

How does nearly every development thread on this site end up with public transit spankoff fests?

Probably because we desperately need better public transit. Since this site is called “The Next Miami,” people are expressing what would make the next Miami a better Miami.

well you ain’t getting it…period. Neither the money nor the willpower is there for extending Metrowhatever to suit your wildest dreams. You can whine and scream otherwise, but I’m right. And the proof is in the real world out there. So either move to some train station dreamland or someplace with no traffic like Ft Pierce because Miami is Miami and you gotta drive to get to work unless you’re an unemployed bum or a trust fundee.

There is quite literally a plan in the works to extend Metromover north through Wynwood and Midtown to the Design District. We’ll see if it happens but its in the works. The Brightline commuter line will go through all three of those places too. Idky you’re so content to live like this when we all know it could be better. Better transit means less traffic even if you’re a snob that refuses to touch a train.

Transit costs money.
My car cost money. Your train costs money.

Yes, “it could be better”.
I’d like a better car, but I’m too proud to ask someone else to pay for my preferred form of transit.

Everyone of the car haters that I’ve met are not willing to pay full fair for their transit. They want it to go everywhere, and they want everyone else to buy it for them.

drivers don’t pay their “full share” of building and maintaining the road network. It is subsidized by government money.

No plan, just a “study” that will conclude extending Metromover is unfeasible when Brightline and streetcars can take care of it for a fraction of the price and without ruining the streets.

I have worked in the downtown core in an office with 100 people for over a decade. I have never come across anyone in the office who lives in the downtown core. Gee, $4000/mo rent for a 1 bedroom box apartment or $3500/mo mortgage on a 3 bedroom house with a yard and garage in the suburbs…. shocking most pick the latter. Adult life is quite limiting with just a bike and a Metromover map.

Geezzz.. the Metromover was envisioned and put in place like you now see it over thirty years ago, and how big was the city/county’s population and who were the elected officials back then?

The money is there, it’s just that these clueless elected officials now are in charge.

The Metromover wasn’t envisioned to go miles beyond Greater Downtown Miami because you want overpriced craft beer and avocado toast in Wynwood, yet don’t want to pay for a Metrorail, Tri-Rail Coastal Link, or Brightline fare.

Oh, so this city can bullshit the people with 1/2 cent penny tax gas tax over twenty years ago to build more Metrorail and Metromover extensions, build a double decked freeway, rebuild part of a freeway so they can build a park under it, and build shit that’s supposed to look like a fountain spouting water but in reality looks like a giant spider crossing the freeway. And the cost of all that is estimated at almost a billion dollars.. but James Webb here is talking about there is no money…

No wonder nothing gets done right in this city.

Most on here want the roads to themselves and everybody else on some sort of mass transport. Tunnels are the obvious solution. As Vegas will prove.

You can’t build less parking since this falls into the Design District overlay, requiring 3/1000. If you don’t like it, please call the moron commissioner that voted for it.

Except every street where Metromover flyovers are is a dump, and it does not have speed or capacity to reduce traffic anyway.

some of these people are blinded with their anti-car mindset. Yes elevated mass transit needs to be added but we need to reconfigure existing roads and highways to improve transit flow too.

Perfect building for the perfect location. But we need to start tearing down single family homes and allow for mixed used medium density developments. Houses hog up too much land.

I don’t think they meant just seize the houses and land. The point is to plan for more density then follow legal processes to acquire the land and upzone. Don’t be ridiculous.

They rather tear down 800 acres in the everglades than to redevelop and solve urban density problems. Eminent domain is a powerful tool used for the greater good. Miami needs experts with urban density, the Netherlands seems to have some experience, check out City beautiful youtube channel

We need better mixed use, grocery shops, retail stores, urban center parks, bike lanes etc. Supporting small business and alleviating traffic, all of this will make Miami more pedestrian friendly and welcoming. Density with mixed use is a solution not sprawling.
