Great infill building that will generate more foot traffic for the area. I wish MDC will do something with their surface parking lot next to it and either sell the land to a developer or build something themselves.

Totally agree, like most parking lots:. An eyesore

MDC should sell all its real estate east and south of the Metromover tracks, including the aforementioned parking lot and Building 7 garage for redevelopment, Freedom Tower for historic restoration and conversion into a boutique hotel, and Building 3 for land assembly redeveloping the moving First United Methodist Church of Miami. Money from shedding its real estate can be used to rebuild the college’s brutalist eyesore Buildings 1 and 2 with plaza bigger than the former itself, for something bigger with consolidated departments, including the business school. Keep the entire campus compact between Fifth and Second (maybe even Third if so much parking isn’t needed for a school with such transit access) Streets and First Avenue and the Metromover tracks.

Buying the old Federal Building was a big mistake, but maybe something can be worked out to turn it into a new central county library with collaboration with MDC. This is Downtown Miami, not University Park. MDC is a taxpayer-funded college, not a landlord. With Worldcenter to the north, revitalization of Flagler Street south, Bayside and AAA east, and MiamiCentral west, pressure will be immense to redevelop.

Wow I didn’t think of that idea, the old federal court house would be a marvelous new county library. The next to government center really needs to be demolished and converted to mixed use high rise development.

Just the accented pronunciation of the Miami Hotel.

The lower part of the building with the shifted grid windows is so cheap, ugly, and blank. Frankly, it wouldn’t look any better if it ended up being parking garage which got waivered. I wish the windows were straightened, and every couple floors had ridges like the upper section. Maybe something completely different?
