Renderings Show Planned Renovation At One Broadway

An architect has uploaded renderings of a renovation planned at the 36-story One Broadway building.

Architect Form Group wrote that the building would be converted into a “world class destination property.”

A new 500-person convention space is planned, the website said.

Also planned: aesthetic and pedestrian improvements, relocation of a pool to the rooftop, new restaurants, and a new spa.

Barcelo Balanzo Arquitectes of Madrid is overseeing design, with Form Group the architect of record, according to the website.

A Notice of Commencement was filed earlier this year, and a tower crane has been in place. There is also an active construction permit.

The tower was originally built in 2005 as an apartment building.

They will probably have to do something similar to all the equally ugly buildings being built now.

Same happens in New York especially Brooklyn. Probably they don’t hire architects. They just built soviet era type buildings to fill quickly the demand.

It’s proposed to be uglier and more boring. What are you talking about?

another “destination” building in Brickell lmao. When all buildings are “iconic” or a “destination” or a “game changer” those terms become meaningless

You are so right, do they really think they are fooling anybody? This town has one of the largest collection of high rises in the country and as far as I’m concerned, only a handful with any architectural value.

Who cares about your opinion about architectural “value”? the point is that someone is making a major investment to upgrade this building.

Good upgrade for the existing building. Looks like they are converting several floors to convention center space. The contractor Civica has been on site for over a year. Go Miami!

regardless of the improvements the building will still be plagued by terrible vehicular access, including a too tight port cochere. A restaurant change couldn’t hurt either – PM is open long past its due date.

By “world class destination,” they mean turning a building with a decent curved crown into a glass box? Are you s**ting me?!

The owner of One Broadway has built the most hedious ugly building on Brickell. What does that mean? He has no aesthetic taste. Why should his 2nd attempt be much better? There is potential to transform Ugly One Broadway into something special. However, the leadership is just not there. Result… we have a slightly less ugly building. Also. Look at the ugly black portico he’s has constructed on his Brickell building… that faces Brickell. It’s made of I Beams . What could possibly possess anyone to create such a horrid mess. It’s completely out of context with the surroundings . Hey Riley. Take down your Black portico
