Exclusive: Studio Gang’s Design District Residential Project Unveiled

A unique 14-story condo building designed by Studio Gang Architects is proposed by Dacra in the Design District, exMiami can exclusively reveal.

The project, known as Sweetbird South Residences, will include 76 residential units, along with about 20,000 square feet of retail space. The building tops out at a maximum height of 199 feet, and will include 114 parking spaces.

A Miami board will need to grant special approval for the project, since it includes balconies that overhang beyond the property line into the public right-of-way.

Chicago-based Studio Gang, led by Jeanne Gang, is collaborating with Miami’s Kobi Karp on the design. Self-described visionary Studio JEFRË is the landscape architect.

 

exMiami will unveil plans for several other major projects later this week, including a few unusual buildings planned in the Design District.

Very cool. But residents, employees and customers all need parking. Perhaps they should include MORE parking?

There’s a large parking lot rising about a block away.

Really! Really! Everyone is always worried about parking in this city. We need a new approach. F the parking. The whole purpose of designing in an urban context is to generate pedestrian activity and density so that we need less parking altogether. Some of the greatest cities in Europe never addressed parking or the car when they were initially designed centuries ago, only later was the car introduced, and look how successful those cities are today. The local government should worry about building parking. The buildings should be totally free of parking and able to address the greater concern of urban life, walkable cities, and public interest.

You must be a housewife on Brickell. Some people have to commute for work.

Parking? Who needs more parking??? We should get rid of all those disgusting lots. For your information, parking lots don’t bring people in. Actually, they detract people from coming.

Residents and employees can take public transportation. Let’s all think URBAN and forget completely obsolete, ugly designs of the U.S. in the 60’s and 70’s. Will we ever contemplate creating real cities?
