List Of Waivers For Yotel Hotel & Residential Project

Below is a full list of conditions required by Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department as part of approval for the Yotel project.

The project includes 188 residential units and 225 hotel rooms, but no parking. Waiver for parking can be granted due to proximity to public transportation, but offsite parking must be purchased or leased for the hotel portion.

Most of the other Miami 21 waivers are related to setbacks.

A construction permit has not been applied for yet.

Pretty funny that even though it will have no parking, they designed the hotel portion to look like a parking podium.

Why though! They had a chance to design what ever, and they went with a parking podium that isn’t really a parking podium!

It’s even uglier than a parking podium! What’s with the refracted strips of windows? It would look so much better if they all vertically lined up and maybe every couple of few floors separated by horizontal ridges like the upper part of the NE 2nd Street side.

The old apartment house from the 1920s was better, and actually renovated commanding high rents before destroyed. We also had a classic retail building the other side of the Metromover tracks, demolished for a stupid parking lot.

That’s Miami. They’ll destroy anything charming or contextual or even interesting if they can put another shitty white box on it.

it’s not a parking podium but was done to differentiate between the hotel and apartments. It’s probably an amenity deck that separates the two. it makes perfect sense to me and is not uncommon in multi-use highrise.

The setback matches the rest of the block.

My hopes is that this is an old rendering showing a parking garage, and that there will be a redesign with no parking garage. I can’t imagine this horrible exterior design to not be a parking garage and just be a differentiator between condo/apartments and hotel components

The conditions are pretty tame considering the waivers they were granted… The setback waiver is a bit disappointing.

why? in an urban setting, especially urban core, a zero lot line is perfectly reasonable.

Except Miami has really narrow sidewalks…

that is very true, however for this site remember the existing building to the east is fairly new and very wide sidewalks, they go from the metromover east to biscayne along both sides of the block. also they have the metromover directly west so depending on the lot line at that location you really don’t necessarily need a setback either. at least that’s how i am reading it.
