Kar Properties Reveals Design For Tall Luxury Condo Towers On The Miami River

Shahab Karmely’s KAR Properties has unveiled plans for twin 60-story condo towers on the former Cima lot.

Miami Today reported that the towers would include 406 residences, 30,000 square feet of commercial space and a 520 space parking garage. The developer has listed a 928-foot building height in an FAA application, and renderings show the proposed buildings to be significantly taller than the neighboring Ivy, Wind and Mint condos, which top out at just above 600 feet.

The unnamed architect is said to be ‘renowned’. Uniquely, the towers would be connected at the top. A five-story waterfall would flow off of the parking podium facing the Miami River.

The low unit count means that there will be just a few residences on each floor. Kar is also spending extra on ceiling height, soundproofing, and elevator experience. That means that condos will likely be priced at a premium.

KAR paid $27.5 million for the site in 2013. Earlier this year, Karmely said that he would break ground on the project by late 2015 or early 2016.

I wish more developers would spend money on soundproofing.

It’s a shame that nearly all of the buildings while looking flashy have paper-thin walls inside.

So, is that supposed to be some kind of deflating news to us? I mean, what’s your point?

Nice looking building. One of the most interesting looking new projects out there.

I’ve been waiting for someone to do a connecting platform above twin towers! It’d be really cool if the 3 buildings above Miami Central were the same height and connected by a surfboard shaped platform with a huge pool/garden on top similar to Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

uhh there already are twin towers connected by a platform above. I forgot the name of the building, but it’s just south of 444 Brickell.

I meant as a part of this new post-recession construction boom. 500 Brickell doesn’t compare to this, I would never live in that building.

Interested on buying an apt now at Mint facing the future building. Any ideas if this is 100% sure will happen? And if so, what’s is the expected depreciation of the units that will loose the view?

This is one of the most likely projects in the Brickell area to hit the market in the next year or two, followed by One Brickell (444 Brickell Ave), Villa Magna (1201 Brickell Bay Dr), the Capital “hole” (1420 S Miami Ave), and phase 2 of Brickell City Centre. Developers are likely waiting until inventory from current projects in the neighborhood are sold out and the new mall opens, both of which should happen before the end of the year. It’s impossible to answer/predict your second question.
