Plans Revealed For Class A Office Building In South Beach, Designed By Lord Norman Foster

Plans have been revealed for a Class A office building on the corner of Lincoln Road and Alton Road in South Beach, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Lord Norman Foster.

The new office building would replace the former Epicure Market building, and several adjacent properties.

A total of around 250,000 square feet is planned in the new project, with the development valued at $200m, according to The Real Deal.

To build the project, the city would need to agree to vacate a portion of an alley that runs between multiple properties that make up the development site.

Miami Beach’s Planning Board voted in favor of vacating the alley on June 21, TRD reported. A city commission vote was scheduled for June 22.

Michael Shvo is the developer.

Landscaping doesn’t make a building green, Shawn. But we’re all happy the renderings are acceptable to you this time!

Great project. That area of the beach is the best spot for an office development.

Minority opinion here, but with height limits and this assemblage, no matter this architecture, it’s sort of boorish to have a short long building replacing multiple ones that make blocks interesting. The massing should be broken up, at least.

I agree and also the many small businesses that currently operate here should be given consideration. I stead all I see are huge retail spaces that only large chains can afford.

The amount of small local longtime businesses being displaced by this are not mentioned at all. It’s disgusting. I frequent several those businesses and hate to see them gone. It makes my quality of life worse. Tired of all the cavernous large retail being built that then often sits empty while friendly, charming and useful gets pushed out.

I’m disappointed in the plain design. Ditto, 1212 Lincoln concrete box next door.

I don’t see South Beach being a great place for class A office space.

it will be and I hope it will entice residents -including me- to start dressing like we actually work here….the current uniform of residents and tourists is t-shirts and flip-flops and in general only workout clothes…

Dress for the job you want… not the job you have. Me? I’d like to be relaxing on the beach or getting some physical activity in so I’ll stick to flip-flops and and t-shirts, thanks.

Miami Beach need to diversify its revenue base. We can no longer only rely on tourism. And with the development of all the new office space around Lincoln road it’s another reason south beach needs to connected to the county via reliable rapid mass transit

“We can no longer only rely on tourism”

Miami Beach was built on sand that was dredged up from the bottom of the Bay in Miami and it was touted as a tourist destination a long time ago before you were born. Miami Beach didn’t start off like some oil city and tourism will be it’s mainstay long after you’re gone.

You’re probably correct, however Lincoln Road is going through another transition.

I know I’m right. Look, what you see happening on Lincoln Road is very mynute. That’s a small fraction of Miami Beach. The majority of the money Miami Beach makes every year comes from tourism and will always be from tourism.

Lincoln Road is full of people and life. Was there tonight. The naysayers probably never leave their ivory towers to see the real world outside of facebook.
