“why do you take so personal, are you this project architect’s drafter?”

I’m not complaining or whining about these apartments being “boring” with parking pedestals or acting like the rendering is putting me to sleep. I understand what the objective is. Density, along with increasing the need for affordable apartments in the downtown core is what the city is trying to acheive. I’m not expecting every structure that’s coming out of the ground to dazzle me.

Like marc said – “Better than what’s there now.”

I agree with the anonymous criticizing this ugly project…the anonymous before me just doesn’t get the point

Oh I get points when they are worthwhile, but calling something “ugly” is hardly worthy of calling that “profound critical thinking” in my book or a crafted sentence such as this – why do you take so personal, are you this project architect’s drafter? – superb literature.

It would be nice if you Anonymous fellas could add a number or something to your names. That way it wont look like you are arguing with yourself.

Let’s not be mediocre. This is the right time for Miami to improve and shine. Not every city receives the attention and level of investment that we are experiencing. It is not just about filling empty lots but building great public places, really urban looking buildings and spaces that are oriented to pedestrians because someday not too far from today, it will be a pain to drive with downtown traffic and we will only rely on the mass transit that is being planned today, we will live among what is being built today and good or bad that will be our city…and it will be too late to complain.

“Really urban looking buildings”? I’m not sure what you are asking for, the rendering shows a parking pedestal with active retail in the north side of the building and a pedestrian promenade with wide sidewalks all around. As far as I’m concerned this is one of the most pedestrian oriented buildings proposed in the urban core thus far. How exactly would you make this building a better “public space”?

It ain’t Paramount or the Marriott, but it’s far better than Luma or Block E. Also, while the zig-zag thing is kind of ugly, I find the parking to be hidden quite well.

Ugly towers on a massive blocky parking pedestal. The design of the towers should continue to the ground rather than cutting off at podium. This is a widely accepted urban design principle. The zig zag line on the podium is a cheap afterthought. Parking is a utilitarian function that should be integrated into the design rather than dominating the building design.

Density is a great thing. Attractive density is a better thing that is easily attainable. Boring ugly density is not a great thing.

“Ugly towers”

I guess when you have nothing invested, criticizing is cheap and easy.

Who are the people on here who think you have to be an investor in or developer of a property to be worthy of making comments on its design? By this logic since you guys have not invested in the project your positive input is not valid either.

Well, since I don’t like what your comment says, I think it’s dumb and illogical.
