On The Former Lynx Site, A Residential Project May Be In The Works

One of America’s biggest apartment developers may be planning to build on the former Lynx site.

Trammell Crow Residential is listed on an application submitted to the FAA late last month to build a 483-foot tower on the property. The company has developed over 250,000 units, according to their website.

Wharton Equity Partners is the owner of the land, and listed it for sale in 2015. The company’s website states that they are evaluating a mixed use project for the site with 500,000 square foot office, 50,000 square feet of retail, and 900 rental units.

The property is zoned for up to 80 stories and 3.2 million square feet.

Litigation over a previous loan on the property has been in the courts for years and involved some of the principals behind Miami Worldcenter.

This would be nice. They should build those 3 towers by Kobi Karp. Up to at least 700 ft.

Every time I see that rendering of link, I can only imagine what that project would’ve done for Miami and the skyline.

Zoned for 80 stories and 3.2 million sqft, proposing 483ft tower (singular)?

What?

Its purely economic, and should be that way for this site. It is a hole in the downtown pedestrian experience, and a project that will supply more rentals as well as required retail or office at street level is a win versus waiting for this to be built as another lux condo for blood money to be parked in.

This site is not for luxury condos anyways….

Might be the first one of three that’s going to be proposed.

But, you know suomynona, this proposal and height really doesn’t bother most of us too much because we’re waiting for one of the “big boys” to finally come online…the 1000 and over footers!

Trammel hasn’t done anything in Florida for years, but they are supposed to be better than 99% of the stuff out there.

I don’t know… seems a little close to arguably the most iconic tower in Miami.

Well that’s why it is imperative the building looks nice.

Honestly, you guys may be complaining but truth be told; no matter the architecture, the developer, the utility of the building; anything is better than that ugly wasteland that is there right now.
