Developer Proposed Replacing Zaha Hadid With Urban Robot Architects For City Garage

A developer submitted a plan earlier this year to replace a proposal for the Zaha Hadid Collins Park parking garage, according to documents obtained by TNM.

Robert Finvarb Companies would have built the garage using private funds, in exchange for ownership of retail, residential, and commercial components of the development. Urban Robot Architects would have replaced Zaha Hadid as the designer.

Miami Beach’s commission voted to reject the proposal, and instead open it to bidding through an RFP (currently underway.)
