City Approves Worldcenter’s 7th Street Apartments

Miami’s Planning and Zoning Department granted final approval last week for the 7th Street Apartments project at Miami Worldcenter that will replace Grand Central nightclub.

Fees for the application in the amount of $68,194.50 were paid for by 7th Street North Miami (FL), LLC, which is managed by CIM Fund of Los Angeles. A letter submitted with the application was signed by Nitin Motwani, on behalf of Miami First, LLC. The ultimate developer of the project  is unknown.

everytime I read a comment that’s negative about the design of a rental apartment I laugh out loud…..people complain that rents are out of control but want the building to be designed by some starchitect…look…what is badly needed are rental projects that are well designed with reasonably fair rents….melo may not be zada hadid but at least normal to below market rents help people live in core of city….

So it is no Zaha Hadid. lol. So what ? It looks nice. The whole project in general looks nice. I’m glad its bringing density as well.

Didn’t the MWC project include a tower that was supposed to be about 900 feet tall? I could of sworn I read something on TNM on that a few months ago.

Utterly moronic comments, good design doesn’t have to be expensive, and it’s not a one or the other choice. This could have been a decent building with some minor changes. The freeform things at the top are ridiculous. And not a single shade tree shown on the ground. Pathetic for a so called world class city.

And this is a bad design according to… you? Prestigious architectural critic, please tell us what minor changes you would have made to make this a “decent” design? Shade trees (check) what else?

Ok sure, and what are your credentials then for endorsing the project? Or is any building good for you? How about you say what you think is good about the design?

And the other changes are that the tower form and design should extend down to the street rather than stopping at the podium and the silly roof structures should be removed.

Other design was way better. Seems like all the MWC buildings are being downgraded to generic run-of-the-mill designs.

And what do you expect in apartments–a Zaha Hadid design? Snap back to reality. (Oop, there goes gravity.)
