New Renderings Of Sawyer’s Landing Planned For Overtown

Swerdlow Group has released new renderings of their Sawyer’s Landing project planned to be built in Overtown.

Construction is expected to take two years.

Sawyer’s Landing will include:

  • Retail – 290,000 square feet of vertical big box national retailers
  • Residential – 506 rental apartments
  • Office – 72,000 square feet of Class A offices spread across 4 stories
  • Parking – 1,116 parking spaces

Miami’s Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency voted in March 2018 to award the development rights for the property, known as Block 55, to an affiliate of Swerdlow. That affiliate, Downtown Retail Associates LLC, obtained some type of financing from an entity named Block 55 Lender LLC in December.

Last year, Swerdlow said that there were Letters of Intent to occupy 71% of the space, including a fitness club, pet store, retail and entertainment.

According to the plans, Arquitectonica is the architect, along with Robin Bosco. The project has not been reviewed yet by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board.

Im going to go on a limb and say this is easily one of the ugliest renders this site has posted in a while.

Looks like CitizenM on steroids.

“rendering” not “renders”. “rendering” is a noun defined as a work of visual art, especially a detailed architectural drawing. “renders” is a verb in the 3rd person present defined as to provide or give (a service, help, etc.)

Forget it.. Miami is full of people who not understand or care about using the correct words.

This has to be the worst design from Arquitectonica! Nevertheless, good Project for Overtown

What I can’t understand is why developers keep using this incompetent architect firm?

What do you mean?
They have a blank canvas in Overtown and this is the best they can come with?
Even for Overtown it’s lackluster

Yes
This project is becoming.
Love it

So where are the offices and where is the residential? No balconies even in this poorly designed trash? Please Miami Design Review Board, make Architectonica go back to the drawing board and design something better than this.

Functionalism Revival Style. It’s going to have big box tenants, so make it look like a big ol’ box.

Design is ugly as hell!!! What’s going on in Miami? Going back to the 60s.

Nah, as usual they’re just going with the cheapest architect firm in the nation.

When every empty lot is filled up with ugly, forgettable distasteful buildings,everyone will wonder how we got to that point, but it will be too late. I seriously doubt that the City of Miami Design Review Board reads this medium, or that they even care, as long as money is being poured into the city coffers, or worse yet the pockets of those who look the other way.

From now on we won’t approve any plans without checking with you first.

As if Beckham not choosing Overtown for his site was going to stop gentrification. That MLS stadium would be perfect at its original site! The 836 is a shit show.

Robin Bosco is the absolute worst! that’s the architectural “genius” behind such gems as the “5th and Alton” shopping center in Miami Beach and the Dadeland Target which are both examples of his “vertical integrated parking retail” concept. Pure Garbage

Hmmmm!!!!! 290,000 Square Feet of big-box retail? Enormous and unrealistic. Conventional retail as we know it is nearly dead (when you visit malls and remnants of downtown around the nation)….and in that area of downtown. Where is the justification…and more importantly, where can they possibly find major big-box tenants to fill the projected space?

Anonymous

Yes.. these developers are going to “over retail” the area.

Oh boy, once the article said that Arquitectonica is the architect, I knew it would look like crud.

They are the only firm that can consistently surprise you with how horrible they can make a design. You never think it can get worse and yet?!

What are they, a bunch of children with pencils and crayons?

I think the kids with pencils and crayons would come up with a better design !

Enough with the hyperbole. You architecture critics on here are annoying.
