TNM, I like seeing these construction update posts. Please keep them coming. Also, nearby, the large project next to Ponce Circle Park is rising. Miami is booming in all directions. Great infill throughout all of our neighborhoods.

Agreed. With zero parking minimums. Let the free market decide.

We need a pedestrian walkway over US1 at every metrorail stop south of Downtown. This particular one has one but South Miami, Coconut Grove and Dadeland are sorely lacking.

What happened to Wynwood Plant? I found it a solid compromise between the area’s history and “XXI century industrial character.”

Still, I’d like to see more of this architecture in Coconut Grove, Coral Way, Little Havana, and the Upper East Side. No more cheap and nasty boxes and cluttered windows!

Agree
We have enough Mediterranean and pseudo Mediterranean architecture peppered all over. Enough!
Leave Wynwood be Wynwood. Now, if you’re talking about the density and transit ability, then by all means…

How is it transit oriented when it has hundreds of parking spots?

How much parking does it have?

Because a lot of people still have cars and have no desire to take public transit. Do you wish these people be barred from this site?

Then don’t market it as transit orientated.

Miami is a car city. Forget about that changing.

That would eventualy change, but it would take more time than what we think.

People can ride the train or trolley when it suits them and they can still have a parking space for their car. Something can be two things at once.

Thanks for explaining that. I was going to respond to that idiotic commenters remark “Then don’t market it as transit orientated,” but you responded to that very succinctly.

In this case it can’t be two things at once. Transit-oriented development is development that edirectly creates transit ridership. Development that gives people the option to drive or use transit is not transit oriented development. The vast majority of developments offer parking. Development around a transit station should be reserved for people who want to use transit instead of cars.

People still want to store their cars somewhere even if they don’t drive them everyday.

Or have only one car per household, which will make a big diference.

haha half of the whole structure is parking garage. Miami could double its marketable square footage if we stopped requiring parking pedestals.

Coral Gables actually has some good modern architecture, from the 1950s and 60s, the last time it was legit in fashion. Classical architecture is timeless.
