Love this design! So cool 😎 hope the church stays but there’s plenty of room for both, history and innovation,

The church is staying. It’s designated as a historic building. It’s all about what Indian artifacts are lurking under the parking lot.

Half the Church will remain. The other half will be demolished and replaced by the Lord’s phallus.

Let’s get this built before the NIMBYs can take advantage of unearthed shark teeth and pottery shards.

Not to mention that rag known as The Miami Herald who cried about the loss of food trucks. Never mind the fact their former headquarters’ failed historic designation was a ruse to stop Genting, and had no historic significance anyway.

Right – wouldn’t want people advocating for absurd things like public space and parks

Exactly. When there are already a number of unused parks in the area and more coming soon. I’m fed up with the incessant complaints from the entitled.

Where are these Brickell parks you speak of?? Literally every tiny green space is being built up. Even the minuscule Allen Morris Park isn’t safe from development.

NIMBYs in Brickell?

There are NIMBYs in Brickell? I don’t this so…that’s the wrong use of the acronym.

OH God. Terrible and Tacky. There was a previous comment that said it looks like design from the year 2000. I agree.

The rendering looks kind of early 00s and fake.

You mean back when actual “iconic” buildings were proposed, and not stacked boxes and undulating balconies?

If the HEPB approved the sodomization of the Walport Apartments for Wynwood Bay and the CS church for 1836 Biscayne Boulevard, there’s no reason why they should deny this magnificent tower.

The design looks very tacky. This site deserves a more elegant building.

churches are drying up. Build something useful or repurpose the building for outreach programs.
