Looks “more flatiron” than Brickell Flatiron.

So ironic that Ugo Colombo sold this lot then built the official flatiron, which I completely agree is less flatiron than this beauty…

Not really so ironic. Flatiron made a pot of money, who knows this one. Paid 5 times more for the land.

That was the original Flatiron that was designed for the Brickell site, but was canceled and subsequently changed after the 2008 financial crisis. However, I like it better in its current location, stunning.

The original Flatiron Brickell was designed by Enrique Norton of Ten Arquitectos.

I highly suggest looking up orignal renderings of the original flatiron Brickell. It was supposed to be built over the metro mover rail into the small traingle shapes lot to the south of it. With this changed decision, Flatiron sadly abandonded the idea of having a jagged and pointed edge.

Fortunately, the current design is still super sleak and nice. It wasn’t dumbed down completely like Met 3:(

These photos are better than the official ones they post on the project’s Instagram handle. What’s up with those awful filters they add to the photos?

Looks great. But does anyone have a rendering of what the corner by the bridge will look like…. that corner is already a pedestrian and traffic nightmare.

Unfortunately that is the only thing I see, a wall of Glass and little to no balconies. This is Miami, not New York.

Are you blind? There are more linear feet of balconies than almost any building in the city. Look at the other three sides of the building next time!

Miami needs a lot more highrise construction in the Allapattah (or downtown), Wynwood, Edgewater, Design District, etc, areas.

High rises are not meant for those neighborhoods other than Edgewater. High rises would be completely out of scale with the neighborhood. At most mid rise buildings.

If Overtown is changing, these neighborhoods you’re talking about need to change also. If they stay stuck in the past without any defining feature or redeeming aspects for the city of Miami, what kind of progress for the future can they or do they really hold?

Overtown east of I-95, which has essentially been absorbed into greater downtown. Anything west should be mid-rise at most, as a transition to Spring Garden and Grapeland Heights.

Don’t care, just re-open the riverwalk! Or provide some signage, ramps, etc at EPIC

They are selling the units quickly. The sales office won’t be around too long, maybe a year or so. After that, the riverwalk will re-connect there. Meanwhile, you do have to cross the street, but you can re-enter at the Epic via their driveway.
