Liquid Lofts Sent To UDRB For Review

Architect Charles Sieger continues to move forward with the approval process for Liquid Lofts.

Next week, Miami’s UDRB is set to review plans for the 80-story tower – which is the maximum number of floors that zoning permits.

The project, to be located at 35 Southwest 1st Street, was approved by the FAA last summer for a height of 866-feet above ground level.

In total, 482 apartments and 311 parking spaces are planned.

This is a great design and perfect addition to the Downtown area. Could really help define the area. Well done!

I’m a fan of tall and thin framed towers. Very well done and love the red accents to it. The look of this tower, the name and the logo design just makes it really cool all together.

Very nice design and hoping more 800 footers of this caliber come that section/zone.

Even though the shape is nothing revolutionary I like the height and lighting it will add to the skyline.

Yeah I mean not every single building has to be a work of art. Most of the buildings in most cities are just tall thin things built up against each other, and it’s the whole fabric created by them that makes places. This looks good, basic, simple, and dense. But yeah too bad about the parking.

Nice, but what the hell is with the obsession with leaving walls blank? Would it kill them to have some windows on the bottom part closer to the street?

I always hear this obsession with views, yet sometimes they act as if nobody can see how much of the buildings are blank wallspace that get dirty over time. (look at some of the older buildings in the immediate areas that have made that same mistake)

Other than that, it’s magnificent!

Pretty sure that’s the garage…

And it can easily be a large “billboard”/advertisement. It also may not be visible once/if the property next to it is also re-developed. Some people need to stfu.

This needs to happen.

But will it? Aren’t they considering denying approval due to not having the required setback?

The less setback the better.

This looks very similar to the Missoni Baia tower yesterday that everyone hated. Yet everyone seems to love this. What gives?

Those were all Related Inc. employees. They don’t like competition. They want everybody going to Auberge.

I think Missoni Baia had higher expectations for something unique and architecturally significant. There’s already plenty going on in Edgewater, so I think people are yearning for something iconic–which obviously isn’t the case with any of the new development. Whereas this tower is in a neighborhood whose only addition during this cycle was Centro. Plus, this has a defining characteristic of height, which inherently makes any tower cooler (Missoni Baia is the same height as Biscayne Beach, the Paraiso towers, Auberge, etc.)

Very cool, until you see that clunky parking pedestal.

Renderings like these are beautiful but they drive me insane. None of us will ever be looking at the towers from those perspectives. Meanwhile, the view at street level looks pretty terrible, and the large blank wall on the tower will be facing the bay.

The street level interaction is sad, and tacky podium with the illuminated pictures…omg

In theory that Secret Garden 2 tower proposal would be right next door and both look to be built out to fully to the sides of their lots with little to no side set back so no one would ever see the side of Liquid if both proposals get built.

It would look nicer if they painted the blank walls light blue to blend in with the color of the glass

Horrific design. There isn’t anything exciting about this design. A Developer’s dream.. depressing.

Liquid? Lofts? Old man Charlie Sieger is stuck in the nineties he should retire or hire someone under the age of 50 to do his marketing…

Even the Government Center has better architecture than this sad excuse. I suppose it’s better than Centro.

Also, people complaining about the lack of street interaction need to understand it’s basically an alleyway, with the Metromover running right over the street. Wishful thinking, but tearing down the garages, crappy the nondescript buildings across the street, and that shitty mal to move the viaduct to the side would open up the street. Whenever the Downtown Distributor comes down, this will be the next frontier, assuming Miami Worldcenter is finished.
