Related Requests Approval To Build Condo Tower On Terminal Island

Miami Beach is set to review a proposal from developer Related Group for a condo project on Terminal Island.

The proposal calls for a 25-story, 300-foot residential tower designed by Foster + Partners with 90 condo units. The architectural firm is led by Pritzker prize recipient Norman Foster.

The developer would also rebuild city facilities on the island, with 40,600 square feet of administrative and service space along with 395 parking spaces for city use.

City officials must sign off on zoning changes and a development agreement for the project. The zoning changes will be reviewed at a Planing Board meeting on February 28.

Related Group affiliates own a 50 percent share in the project. The other half is controlled by Victor Bared and the Boschetti family.

Zoning wise this probably not the best use of the land. Seems a pretty poor decision to use for residential, it should probably stay as industrial use.

Completely agree! We only have so much land in Miami with deep water adjacent able to except large marine activity, I believe this is one of those sites. I applause their ability to put together interesting deals to make unique projects work, but this one is not good for Miami.

These triangle shaped lots have very limited access and it’s just not large enough to attract large investments in crane/warehousing. The sea wall is probably best used for large ship parking or ferry operations like the next door fisher island ferry. Therefore I think the highest and best use is probably a combination of both light industrial and some residential (however that might be achieved).

This is the best zoning for the City – takes away all the junk that was driving through the MacArthur. It will also attract the largest boats in the world that previously had nowhere to stay in Miami and will bring an immense amount of much needed tax income to the City for public works (sea level rise?). This is the start of a new era for Miami Beach.

A condo tower on public land? No thank you…

A fishing market would be better here than what they have on the Miami River. A mixed use development with a boutique mid-luxury condo, restaurants, fish markets, minimal retail, and dock space I think would be the way to go. I think with a boutique building that would look like that simple given rendering would sell out very quickly (even if there is heavy construction from condo developments in the immediate area).

I personally think the building looks great but this public land space could maximize its use by its implementation of a small economy (fishing, fisheries, dock space, light retail, supplies store ((a mini – district)). High dollars could maximize tax growth which could be filtered back into the streets, transportation, parks, etc.
Also the public should demand plenty of public park space from the developers. Not a small style dog park but a maximum use park space for kids, exercise, small public events, etc.

Thoughts welcomed.

they should put a coal plant or somekind of factory here so they can just dump the excess waste into the ocean next to it. That way they don’t have to pay to have someone come pick it up and dispose of it and it can save the company alot of money.

Thats actually really good idea, hadn’t thought of that.

I couldn’t agree more. Waste disposal can cost a business thousands of dollars a year.

Best comment and best idea I’ve read in a while.

Any reason the city should give up the space it uses for fleet maintenance?

I don’t understand all the garbage and pollution joke specifically on this one. Who is it a knock on?

Magic City Man

I don’t think it’s a joke. Garbage collection and disposal cost the city a lot of money so why not just dump it into the ocean instead. It’s a win win cause you save on garbage cost plus you feed the marine life in the area as fish will pretty much eat anything. they are like natures garbage disposals and it’s free of charge.

This is a great project that is going to make Miami an even greater force. The marina is going to bring yachts we have only been able to see in Fort Lauderdale.

What’s the big fascination with having $100 million+ yachts not registered here but parked here for 6 months of the year? Does it make the region better somehow?

I am very excited for this project. This is going to change Miami! It will have a marina that can dock boats we haven’t been able to before. With an amazing building infront of it that will attract people from all over the world.

City Commissioner

Norman Foster?!!? Approved!!!Do it now!….

SAD TRUTH_ Given the developer it will Most likely not be built as designed, just like Zaha Hadids Garage and OMAs convention center.

Norman Foster has been pursuing this project for years, hopefully it continues to push forward.
