Mana Plans 49-Story Apartment Tower – With No Parking

Moishe Mana has submitted plans to build a 49 floor rental project called 200 North Miami Avenue.

Mana’s architect squeezed out the maximum residential unit count that zoning permits on the lot. The project is proposed to include 328 units – exactly what is permitted on the lot, which is zoned for 150 units per acre. Total FLR is 322,355 SF.

The tower will be tall and slender with no podium, rising to a height of 599 feet. Thanks to proximity to public transportation, the project is exempted from building parking, and Mana has opted not to build any at all.

Architects for Mana describe the project as a luxury residential tower. Amenities will include a gym, social room and pool.

Next door, Mana has sued the Miami Parking Authority over a decision to award development rights to a competing developer. That lawsuit is still ongoing.

Zyscovich is the project architect. The project has already been submitted to the city and is set for UDRB review this month.

looking forward to the day that moishe actually BUILDS anything he says he’s going to. In his entire investment career all he’s done is BUILT wealth. He adapts existing buildings and invests in land. Let’s see this guy ever BUILD anything…

Oh, man, oh, Mana. This is awesome (and actually unique).

The thought of no parking seems crazy but you have the metrorail, all aboard florida train, and soon to be streetcar system

Im so glad Mana has bought a ton of property in CBD. He is going to make that place so unique, unlike all the white stucco in Brickell other than BCC.

Amazed by Zyscovich design….we more like Z and les Arquitectonica

Wow! Very Unique! Great work Bernard Zyscovich!! Can not wait to see what you guys have planned for the lot across the street!

Beautiful
I think the most disturbing feature in architecture is buildings with parking underneath.
Thank you Mana for helping create urbanism and aesthetics.

This will be one of miami’s signature sky scrapers . Outstanding job Zsykovich! As for parking, have any of you been to an urban city.. Chicago..New York City? Give it time Miami Seems to be growing fast and expanding transient opportunities. I am mainly concern that this will be another project Mana will not build.. this project will will put Miami on the map for architecture.

YES. No dumpy anti-urban podiums. No cruddy stucco. No massive building width to dominate the street with sameness. I wish they’d build stuff on those sunblasted hellhole “gardens” in front of the federal building but oh well. Great project. More please.

I think the gardens are nice. They add some green space to a mostly government brutalist architecture area.

aceraroja

If I get to choose between the “brutalist” (they’re actually just ugly 2010s modern trash) buildings and the gardens, sure. But they’re just hot slabs of grass. We know how that goes in Florida. They should make them beautiful shady jungles or get rid of them. I’m also a little sad this will bulldoze some of the few original buildings in Miami but I understand why it makes sense.

I agree about the unfortunate razing of history but in this particular case these buildings are pretty featureless.

Very modern looking. I like it.

BEAUTIFUL! WELL DONE!

This rendering is hideous to say the least. Looks like a shot up old building in Columbia! Different cereal boxes placed randomly upon each other. Clients looking for luxury would not give this a second look, and at least in Miami where the heat and humidity is atrocious, luxury buyers will not ride public transportation and have to walk several blocks to their home. One would think a thin narrow design such as this would translate into a sleek profile, thus making it very appealing in an effort to upgrade the junky reputation of Miami ave. and the surrounding neighborhood.

I don’t think these units will be that luxurious. More in the area of a Centro type pricing is what I expect.

So much more luxurious to sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic cursing at drivers crossing five lanes of traffic and stopping in the middle of the road to jump out and run to the store.

He owns another properties across the street so that area will be very nice once he completes the whole area.

Below are all the properties he owns in CBD.

This has to be the ugliest rendering I have ever seen.

Great news, hope others do the same.

Great! Beautiful!

Buildings with no parking are mainly purchased by investors who rent them out on a short term basis, giving the building a transient feel. For those who purchase to actually live in them, will have to rely on Uber and public transportation. An added complaint is that not having parking makes having guests come over all that much more difficult. I hardly drive and I do use public transportation but I would never live in such a building, I am just too social and I love to entertain. Still, I am sure many people will love it and Mana will do just fine.

As opposed to the other 300+ unit buildings in Miami with parking that do not feel transient?

aceraroja

I live in a building with tons of parking and the driveway is clogged with traffic all day and night as well as the streets around it. Despite all this parking, only some 25% of the condos are owner-occupied and as many as 100 of them are just kept as vacant “bank accounts.” On the other hand, a building with cheaper units that can house younger people in school and/or with sub-100K jobs — which I think you’ll admit are essential to all real cities — seems more likely to have more long-term, even if rental, occupants.

Urban areas need to either dispense with the parking OR be less dense. You DO have to make a choice. Downtown is already a driving nightmare which actually makes it hell to walk and bike because you’re more likely to get run over by annoyed jerks stuck in their traffic.

Are you kidding me, another tower with no parking in downtown? Was not enough non-sense with Centrum?

marc

You mean the sold out Centro?

simply awful. this looks like a building from Blade Runner, and not in a good way. Old bernard zyschovich must have fallen off of his bike and hit his head

WTF ?

Ridiculous, no parking means your not catering to any working people in Miami

Mike04

Live and work in DT. I hardly go anywhere other than Brickell or DT.

aceraroja

Or take a $5 Uber anywhere.

Agree with you on the lack of parking.. in this case he seem to leveraging the existing city parking garage next door. No parking buildings will not work for the majority.

aceraroja

Neither do apartments 100% above what the average resident can afford. It works for many, it doesn’t have to work for “the majority.” And if you’ve ever seen a rush-hour block-winding line to enter a downtown condo garage, it’s not even working for them.
