Plans Submitted For Mixed-Use 1920 Alton, Designed By Gensler

Plans have been filed to build a mixed-use project called 1920 Alton Road in South Beach.

1920 Alton is planned to rise 5 stories and include:

  • 25,223 square feet of Class A office space
  • 8,284 square feet of restaurant space at the ground level (split between two separate tenants)
  • three residential units that will total approximately 13,271 square feet
  • a screened-in parking garage on the second level with 45 spaces

Gensler is the architect.

Alton Office Holdings II LLC is the developer.

The LLC is controlled by three separate companies, each owning a 33.33% stake. They include WMB Resources of Dublin, Ohio (managed by Wayne M. Boich), Edge Park Realty LLC of Greenwich, Connecticut (managed by Andrew Mathias), and Beachbox Holdings II, LLC of New York (managed by Bruce Beal). A Related Companies logo is attached to the plan submittal.

A hearing before the Miami Beach Design Review Board is scheduled December 6.

As always, Gensler is spot on design. We should be so lucky to have them design this side of the bay. Gensler is the architecture firm responsible for the Shanghai Tower; currently the 2nd tallest in the world and a mind bending design.

I’m sorry but this looks like another Arquitectonica design.

You don’t even know what that means.

Unlike you, I do know that this design looks like a lot of Arquitectonica designs on Miami Beach.

Yes, and it’s awful. You can’t judge architecture solely by its firm.

Shanghai Tower while a beautiful design has been considered quite a failure, much of the reason due to inefficient architecture.

CMB needs to up zone the entire Alton Road corridor from this intersection south to the Whole Foods.

Yeah, let’s turn South Beach into Hong Kong!

Oh wait, I have a better idea — let’s not. And since I am an actual property-owning, taxpaying resident of South Beach, my opinion is more important than yours.

Can we add 15 floors to this project?

NO we cannot, you (over)development shill who obviously does not live in that area and has no concept of aesthetic scale and proportion. Just look at the bottom rendering. Whatever anyone may think of the style of the building, size-wise it is perfectly complementary to its surroundings.

3 residential units in 5 story building? Is this some kind of joke?

Love the copper material giving warmth to the facade! Finally, Miami is experimenting with materiality

Miami Beach lost all the character it has from 30 years ago. Global design and global architects suck.

No, it didn’t. it has evolved into something great. Nothing can remain the same. All new projects are quality architecture

I agree. Miami has a unique architectural style but now with all these new designs which can find it in any major city loose their character.

Yep, low-rise projects taking up entire blocks with a single mass are the worst.
