Photos: Touch Of Color At 3 MiamiCentral, Where Publix Will Soon Open

At 3 MiamiCentral, the finishing touches are being put into place.

The perforated stainless mesh cladding on the parking garage has received several shades of color, while decorative artwork has also been installed. Red tile has been added to accent exterior stairways.

Previously, architects have said that the artwork represents the African and Bahamian heritage of the area, as well as the South Florida environment. Aecom is the project architect. Design2form, a local minority-owned firm, is acting as an architectural consultant.

The Mt. Sinai parking garage has the same stairway. Guess that’s where they found their inspiration.

Yes, but having it outdoors means it will not be a sauna if you decide to use the stairs. Will only sweat 70% as much. Also, when people pee pee in it, it will not smell like climbing up to the metromover.

I think it actually converses with the buildings in the neighborhood. It was meant to look old.

Converses?

Yes, it converses. It goes with the tacky building with square colorful windows just east of it.

Stair wells are fine. Almost like an unexpected throwback feature amongst fairly modern materials and features.

It’s funny how such an obscure architectural firm makes something covering the parking garage nicer to look at than the pukey color orgies Related/Arquitectonica craps out all the time.

AECOM is hardly obscure.

“Design2form, a local minority-owned firm, is acting as an architectural consultant.” AECOM works with engineering.

I think it’s very attractive, love the blue glass & the mix of color & texture. Great to have a Publix in that area. It will look a lot better than most Publix locations.

Does NY’s Grand Central have a giant parking garage? It is insane that they built a huge garage next to the train station.

Maybe because cars didn’t exist in 1871.

I have to agree with you.
Any parking downtown to me is ludicrous. 1871 or 2071
