Wow another generic box with a facade gimmick. Arquitectonica is so boring.

I hate to say it, but it looks cheap. Also take a look at the new metromover station that’s close to opening at 8th st….even cheaper looking with lots of low end metal railing (looks like a prison cell) surrounding the escalators….let’s hope the finish product looks better.

Some say it’s because the building was about to turn 100 (1915-2015) and in this county that would make it eligible for protection. This is mostly hearsay and if this 100 year rule is even true for the city or county it should soon be obsolete anyway because a mass of buildings will start reaching it soon to the point where it would lose gravity.

Actually, buildings are eligible at 50 years old. It already met the cultural significance criteria to be included on the National Register of Historic Places, but no one ever applied for it.

50 is a general rule for NRHP eligibility. It has nothing to do with protection. Dade County (I believe the Heritage Trust) is what can actually protect a building, often times controversially such as that house in Coconut Grove. They don’t have to be 100 but I believe that is a criteria by itself that can merit protection when no other reasons exist. This all has nothing to do with the federal government, I believe even a National Historic Landmark has no federal protection.

The River Oysters Bar is closing and just like Tabaco Road they are relocating. Their new location will be at Flagler on the River located at 340 W Flagger St. There is no set date for the move yet but more than likely it will happen in the first quarter of 2016.

It’s amazing how they made a shopping center look worse than a parking garage. It’s very blank. I thought the plywood looked better than this. Especially from a distance.

Whoaaaa why the hate. This is one of the most negated comments on the whole site. Usually people are against blank walls on any type of building. This is a mid rise mall with nearly non perimeter exterior windows.
