Zaha Hadid’s design for the Collins Park Garage was scrapped by Miami Beach in 2016 after it was deemed to expensive to build.
Now, Miami Beach has a replacement design that they say fits within budget.
Architect Shulman + Associates has designed a garage clad with a perforated metal screen system to block the view of cars from the street. The perforations are shaped include words mixed with random letters.
The garage will include 513 parking spaces, with 15,000 square feet of ground floor retail. The adjacent Liberty Avenue will be either full or partially closed to build a plaza, depending on city preference.
KVC Constructors, Inc. is partnered with Shulman on the design-build package and won the bidding last year with a $22.5m bid.
The Historic Preservation Board is scheduled to review the design on June 11.
