‘Art Deco’ Apartment Building With Ground Floor Target Store Proposed In North Beach

North Beach could soon be getting a Target store, with a 12-story apartment building above.

The design of the tower is described by the developer as “expanding off the local Art Deco architectural heritage.” When complete, it will “create a surrounding atmosphere similar to Purdy Avenue in Sunset Harbour,” the developer wrote in a letter to city planners.

The project is proposed to include a 30,089 square-foot Target store. That is similar in size to a recently opened Target in South Beach, but much smaller than a full size Target such as in Midtown Miami.

The apartment building will have 170 multi-family units. There will also be a 179 space parking garage.

Since the project will be built higher than a 125-foot height limit imposed by Miami Beach, the developer will expedite development construction as a public benefit.

North Beach Town Center Development, LLC, an affiliate of Pacific Star Capital, LLC, submitted the proposal.

Cube3 is the architect.

The Miami Beach Planning Board is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on February 25.

Nothing about that building suggests Deco style.

The vertical architectural features are art deco references, and the use of glass block as a building material as well. I’d agree if you said “this is not art deco”, but it at least “suggests art deco.”

There was a period in time where Art Deco was the style… we’re in the year 2020 now. Many, many years ahead and different tastes and styles now.

Right, and there was a period in time where Neoclassical was in style… for centuries until the 1950s, which even since then is barely the tick of the clock. Modernism arguments make no sense whatsoever.

Wanting to keep everything that’s old because somebody deem it valuable is an argument that doesn’t make sense.

uh huh…. because people around the world don’t recognize Miami Beach as the epicenter of Art Deco architecture and travel here to enjoy it.

Nobody is talking about knocking down anything on Miami Beach. But no place is going to survive by building things in the same style as yesteryear. New York City has thousands of old architectural structures but they’re not stuck on designing new structures with a 1790’s design mentality.

Downtown NoMi could use that

North Beach would really benefit from something new like this in the area and the area to start from somewhere. I hope the city doesn’t shoot this down or water it down so much that it doesn’t make sense.

As an aside, this is adding an “art deco” building to Miami Beach, so the preservationists should be happy 😉

Art Deco has a modernity style into. The lines, the curves, the white colore.The old buildings in New York or other American cities don’t have this feeling. I would like to see in future some new Art Deco buildings in Miami Beach. Maybe a government building or a school.

What was the point of the reduced parking requirements for the new town center zoning district if every project proposed is going to build twice the required parking?

What’s the use in you having a couch, love seat, and chair in your apartment or house when you’re single and nobody comes over to visit with exception of maybe one person? But nobody is telling you what you can and can’t put in your place, right?

This place will have an apartment building with a grocery store.

Correction – “outlet store”

Twelve stories… oh, the horror….

What am I missing? Those look like 2 different buildings. I realize the perspective is different, but the 2 drawings do not line up.

All the anti-parking people are ridiculous. Nothing would be built under their insane demands.
This is a a 170 unit building with 179 parking, notwithstanding a 30,000 sq. feet Target.

They don’t intend on going to or living in places like this unless there’s parking.
