Rem Koolhaas-Designed Condo Tower Planned On Collins Avenue In Mid-Beach

A developer is planned to build a condo tower in Miami Beach designed by starchitect Rem Koolhaas’ OMA, according to The Real Deal.

The new condo tower will rise 19 stories and have 318,000 square feet.

It is being designed to appear like a series of slender towers angled towards the ocean.

There will be a total of 100 condo units and 183 parking spaces. The condo count is lower than allowed by zoning.

The 120-unit, 15-story La Costa condo building at 5333 Collins Avenue will be demolished to make way for the new tower.

The 57-year-old La Costa has been ordered evacuated by the city and has not completed its 50 year recertification. It is now largely unoccupied after a developer bought out nearly 90 percent of units for the new project.

Mast Capital is the developer.

Koolhaas’ projects in Miami include Park Grove and Faena Miami Beach.

The project will be sent to the Miami Beach Design Review Board for a vote.

Well, this is the way forward. Architecture in Miami is rinse and repeat, no one wants to pay for assessments after buildings deteriorate (and this year proved that they do deteriorate and no one should trust officials or condo boards making sure they are maintained). Owners in old buildings will be better off selling out and cashing in.

Better off renting rather than buying an older oceanfront condo.

the design higlights the narrowness of the site and lack of frontage.
neighbours are on top….
not good for sales.

I’m just imagining all those foundation piles that have been sitting submerged in ocean water for many years. Those old buildings gotta go before anything else happens.

Using your strange line of thinking, if oceanfront hi-rises can’t last more than 30-40 years then they’re literally not worth building in the first place. Nobody’s gonna spend big $$ on units even when new that have such a short lifespan. 30-40 years of longevity is mobile home territory. That’s why they’re so cheap and why they depreciate even when in good locations.

Gorgeous architecture.
Unfortunately, this side of the bay gets bland, repetitive pseudo architecture

Vitruvian principals of good architecture is all about repetition, otherwise you get a Kobi Krap box with windows and balconies poked in it like Swiss cheese.
