First Renderings Released Of Frank Gehry’s Twin-Towers Planned To Replace Deauville In Miami Beach

Renderings of a Frank Gehry-designed twin-tower project at the Deauville property in Miami Beach have been released for the first time.

The renderings were released on a website asking Miami Beach residents to support a November 8 voter referendum to allow increased density at the site.

According to the Herald, there would be two towers, including a 125-unit residential tower and 175-unit hotel.

The tallest tower height would be 375 feet, if approved.

Previous reports have said that the hotel would have the Equinox name.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ Related Companies is the developer. Ross grew up nearby.

A related affiliate has spent over $1 million to promote a yes vote on the ballot question to voters, the Herald reported.

Great to see Gehry design something in Miami. I love his architecture style. Now we need him to design something downtown…

Yes, a design like that but 1,000 FT tall will look great in downtown, or Brickell.

If MDC sells, it would be perfect on the site of their parking lot fronting Biscayne Boulevard.

Absolutely beautiful and stunning project. I hope for the sake of North Beach this passes, as it will be a tremendous economic catalyst for the area.

Maybe it’s just me but I am very much underwhelmed and unimpressed.
Looks like another Arquitectonica building. Wavy balcony pattern with glass.

There’s a *bit* more to it than that

In all honesty what is a *bit* more?
The only real difference I see is that the glass railings are located on the edge of the slab instead of on top of the slab.
And that the glass goes down @ 3.5′ as well.
So I guess 3.5′ railing then a 3′ clear opening and then 3.5′ of Glass before the concrete slab?
Not to mention that of course renderings lie and we all know the glass railing will require substantial portions of metal so it wont look like that.
Then its just a pedestal disconnected from the rest of the language of the building. Check
Continuous Balcony around the entire building. Check
No Balcony partitions in the unrealistic rendering. Check
And of course a wavy balcony pattern. Check

Hits all the hallmarks of an Arquitectonica design to me.
Just feels like we all praise it because its a Gehry design.
But if the name of the architect was changed to Arquitectonica or w/e we’d be more honest.. or tough on it, and say it looks nice but is nothing special.
But that’s just my opinion obviously

No +1, Gehry is welcome to design his building within the bounds of the existing FAR limits. F the Merulos.

Exactly. It’s not about canceling this project it’s about building within the current zoning.
