Could a project similar to Brickell City Centre (but with better architecture) be coming to… Hallandale Beach?
Developer Chateau Group’s newly proposed Chateau Square seems similar in many ways to City Centre, on a smaller scale. The plan calls for hundreds of residential units, office and hotel space, and a shopping center at the base shaded by a canopy that looks similar to the climate ribbon being built in Brickell.
Chateau Square’s architecture, however, appears to outshine City Centre. Chateau Group has hired UNStudio, a Netherlands-based architect, to design it.
Plans for the project call for twin 56-story, 604-foot towers with 800 residential units. At the base of the towers, an open-air, canopy shaded shopping center will be surrounded by smaller hotel and office towers. Nearly 2,500 parking spaces would be buried in the basement levels. An led-mesh screen would cover much of the exterior of the lower levels.
It would be built on an 8-acre site at the intersection of US-1 and Hallandale Beach Boulevard. The property neighbors Gulfstream Park, and is near a proposed Tri-Rail stop along the FEC rail tracks.
Chateau Group also owns two high-profile downtown Miami sites at 600 and 700 Biscayne, and they currently have several projects in Surfside and Sunny Isles Beach under construction.
Hallandale Beach’s Planning Department is reviewing the plans.
UPDATE: Images of the project have been removed at the request of the developer.
