Natiivo Submitted To Urban Development Review Board At 51 Stories, 588 Feet

Downtown Miami’s Natiivo tower has been submitted to the Urban Development Review Board (a meeting is scheduled today), with plans prepared by Arquitectonica.

Here are a few of the revelations made in the newly filed application:

Tower Height

Natiivo’s highest inhabitable floor will be level 51 (there is also a mechanical levelabove that). The top height of an architectural feature that encloses the mechanical area is 588 feet above ground.

Parking

Just three floors will be used for parking. It appears meant for valet use, with a total of 459 spaces that are stacked. Miami 21 zoning code requires a minimum of 140 spaces be built, mostly because there is office square footage that cannot have parking waivers. No parking is required for the residential or condo-hotel units, since the site is within 1,000 feet of a Metromover station.

Podium

There will be nine levels in the podium.

The ground floor will include two separate lobbies for the residential and office areas, along with a large restaurant, a small amount of retail, a driveway, and loading areas.

A mezzanine level with mostly service area will be located above.

Parking will be located on levels 2, 3 and 4. Office space will occupy levels five through eight, with ‭129,244‬ square feet of net leasable space on those levels (14-foot ceiling heights).

Residential & Hotel

The total unit count is 604 – exactly the maximum permitted by zoning for a lot of this size (500 units per acre).

The average unit size is 782 square feet, with a total of 472,196 square feet of rentable/salable space. The total rentable/salable square footage for the tower including office and retail is 609,683 square feet.

Arquitectonica is really one unimaginative architect company and are very much in need of new talent.

It’s like Arquitectonica has no taste and most of these hispanics in this town has no taste either.

Who cares, just fill in the parking lots and use can be reallocated later when the market requires.

As long as the parking is not the same “Automated” as Brickell House…that turned out well. Great developer, great building (Not)

NO parking required bc of metro distance? I know we want to be a walkable, public-transit heavy city but the latter is nowhere near up to par to do away with parking. Miami is spread out and public transit blows. This is idiotic.

Baby steps. At least it’s only 3 floors instead of 10.

Double height floors I’d presume since they are stacking the spots.

I thought that was already reviewed by the design board already. They already broke ground.

true, perhaps… but where else can you go to get scintillating commentary and discussions among online architects, engineers, urban planners, brokers and all around density fanboi geeks who know nothing but to constantly chant the same thoughtless mantra “just build it” ?!? 😉

This is the new background of Freedom Tower. With a podium equal in height to the historic tower.

it took on the name Freedom Tower as it served as an Ellis Island for incoming Cubans seeking “freedom”.

Besides the Africans that were dropped off in Cuba to be slaves, when were the Cubans in captivity in Cuba?

Remember now, we’re talking about historical facts.

Is the crown subtly sloping, because such a little change would make this a lot better.

Its because of the Jewish holidays. It will be back to normal soon.

I do believe the design could be better.
It seems like a design out of the 80s, not the 2020.

Well, it could be worse, you could be looking at that lot that’s sat empty for at least thirty five years for another ten more years.
