Arquitectonica-Designed 22-Story Co-Living Tower With Micro Units Proposed In North Beach

A 22-story tower in North Beach designed by Arquitectonica has been submitted for approval to the city of Miami Beach.

72nd & Park is the name of the development.

It is the first major proposal for the newly upzoned North Beach Town Center district.

The project is proposed to include 283 residential units along with ground floor retail and four levels of parking. Many of the units will be micro-sized and the building is being designed for co-living.

KGTC LLC, which is primarily controlled by Russell Galbut and Matis Cohen, is the developer.

Miami Beach’s Design Review Board is scheduled to review the plans in September.

Seems kind of mediocre in design but more density and new space is needed in north beach

It’s no really that dense. It’s a pretty small tower with a giant parking podium. Plus 6 curb cuts? What the heck?

I think Arquitectonica recycled one of their midtown designs here…

I don’t care about the parking, but if they waited 30 years, to wait a couple of more for a decent design would not hurt.

You can just tell when Arquitectonica designed something.

In design, it’s called “a hand”…. a certain “style” always associated with the designer. Gehry has his computerized metal shapes, Meier has his white panels…… etc.
Arquitectonica has its developer driven massed shapes typically facing one direction and a mega parking podium.
This developer is killing the parking problem and has a four-sided building.
That said- much more successful.

Looks like a messy copy and paste job of Hyde Midtown.

92 required parking spaces.
269 proposed parking spaces.

Time for Miami Beach to say no to Mr. Galbut.

283 units.. so what’s the problem with 269 parking spaces? Is there some sort of mass transit transportation nearby? Will you be one of the people fighting over parking because of the lack of it.

Look at the whole picture and not just what you don’t like.

These are mico-units / co working spaces. People living here should be working near by thus should not need a car. That is why the zoning code for this area was created to not require any parking for these units.

They forgot to put a parking maximum as well. Mr. Galbut loves parking. He has a 40 car garage for his own house.

“People living here should be working near by thus should not need a car.”

I think all women should be pretty, stand at least 5ft 9in tall, and weigh around 135pds, but the world or life doesn’t work that way. Forget the way you think something should go.. these developers have to prepare for what could happen.

In case you haven’t noticed, this city and county is not shrinking in population.

Parking isn’t free. Developers love micro units b/c they typically charge more on a $/SF basis. Who do you think pays for the parking ?

There is a big park and a lot of retail there. Add parking, and the islanders from the west will come.

Excellent product in an area that hasn’t seen new retail or residential development in a long time. There are surface parking lots all over that neighborhood. Build on them, add a grocery store, some interesting retail, PARKING, and you will have a little Sunset Harbour-esqe neighborhood that some people will live in, and some people will drive a mile or two to enjoy.

Agreed. With the huge influx of immigrants…. and people having more than two children to replace them on earth….. we have to acknowledge a big need for taller buildings and a greater new scale for cities….. more traffic and greater infrastructure is due.
