If this project is making the downtown NIMBYs who pushed ultra out angry, then I’m all for it.

Non-Nimby downtown resident.

Ken Russell here everybody. I had to get rid of Ultra or else Joe Carollo would have been very mean to me. Now let’s go take a selfie to show the millennials how cool I am!

Suburban Miami is shining again.

I love it. Fills a great void and better links Park West to Downtown .

It’s ugly, heavy handed, no glass cladding, no spire, just square roofs. Does not stand out in a good way. Resembles something from the former Soviet Union. Look at the rendering of Biscayne Blvd in the post. Horrible!

I actually like its Post Modern Brutalism flavor.

BUILD IT!!!!!

love the renderings. nobody has “view rights” includes the residence of paramount.

Anonymous

Yeah but it’s a dumb move of Paramount not to purchase this lot right in front of its million dollars units! Who wants to pay millions to have the views blocked by this thing?

Anonymous

Yep. I’m sure the folks at Paramount want this article to go away.

Alto

I think it won’t happen the way it is portrayed in those renderings because I went to the architects website and they describe the project as an ‘investigation’ where they ‘explore’ this ‘strategy’. I am sure Chataeu Group has plans for this site and most likely will not end up being a square simply because they need to make money out of their investment but It won’t end up being as this study. Hopefully they integrate the design well with the pedestrian needs and help to make Biscayne more appealing to residents to walk by because during day is just very uncomfortable to walk because there are not enough trees and there isn’t enough commercial activity to attract people.

Money money

The developers of Paramount could barely purchase their own lot lol much less buyout Grosskopf

Royal Palm actually owned those two lots prior to the crash but lost them in foreclosure. Local Case #: 2009-008814-CA-01

too bad, so sad, cry me a river. boo hoo.

Should’ve told them to build outside a fucking city

They are the view!

Can we get a rooftop infinity pool? You know, something new and luxurious?

This project is serving Minneapolis skybridge circa 1980 and it isn’t fresh or new.

Anonymous

I agree. The design is terrible.

Anonymous

i like it. why is it terrible.

Anonymous

I like the design weirdly but I think a rooftop infinity pool is needed in Miami and I’m surprised we haven’t gotten one yet. Would be nice here.

Anonymous

Too windy. Would be useless. And very costly.

We need more office buildings and we need to attract more companies. All these residential buildings for who exactly? Plus this is pretty ugly

Anonymous

i like you

Anonymous

Agree about the offices but don’t think this is ugly. Maybe once all the prime real estate is built with condos they will start to infill the back lots with offices since the views aren’t as important. CEO’s move there offices close to their houses so maybe it’ll workout.

Anonymous

Who says we need more office buildings? Downtown has fairly high vacancy.

Anonymous

Downtown Office vacancy is pretty high now. Why don’t you build an office and give it a shot? Especially 7 blocks from the core, and wasting the water views.

Anonymous

Downtown is looking amazing by the minute! Keep em coming!

Anonymous

Your idea of amazing is filling up every vacant lot, never mind what is built there.

Anonymous

It’s a surface parking lot… so yes absolutely anything else would be amazing

Anonymous

Just because it’s a surface lot now doesn’t create carte blanche.

DOWNTOWN FOR THE WIN!!! The Miami skyline will be totally different in 5 years

Well that’s what MDC is doing, and it’s falling apart. Best to sell or outsource lease/manage a boutique hotel, which would be great.

and stop complaining, this is only a study and i am almost sure it won’t happen

Anonymous

Almost?
This won’t happen

I feel that the people saying that it won’t happen are all members of the Paramount sales team😂😂😂

this won’t happen! … and please, if you are interested in a stunning unit at Paramount please private DM me now! Hurry, units won’t last

This project looks incredible, new silhouettes to add to our Beautiful group of towers on Biscayne.

Will this slow down sales or bring down prices at Paramount?

Anonymous

Surely they won’t be happy about losing waterfront views…

Anonymous

Waterfront views?

That’s always been the problem with the thinking of a lot of people concerning Miami. Unless the thinking of what’s worthwhile and what isn’t is changed when it comes to the makeup of Miami, progress and change is always going to be slow for this city.

Anonymous

People are attracted to Miami because of the water. If you think water views don’t matter here, then you have zero grasp of the Miami market.

Anonymous

Sadly you are right, but as I tell all my clients if you want water views you have to purchase in a building that is on the edge of the baby, even if it is only a block away, chances are you will eventually lose it.

thank you – the only smart comment in here.

Well said and totally correct.

Danny

That’s what Edgewater, Coral Gables, etc. is for. Not downtown where it’s a *********CITY**********

Anonymous

Nothing new has been built in Edgewater in the people’s republic of coral gables in a decade, so don’t quite get your drift.

Anonymous

Evreybody knows a vacant lot is a future building…so i don’t think so.

Anonymous

they aren’t on the water front. have you seen where the damn building is? it’s behind another building two blocks from the water… if you were stupid enuf to buy there thinking you’d have that view forever that your problem

Anonymous

Precisely. Snake oil brokers never mention these trivial things. East side of Epic facing the same issue soon, as are others too numerous to mention here.

Anonymous

Sorry but you have to be pretty stupid to buy in a building with water views that has a empty lot in front of it and not presume another high rise will rise there blocking your view. Stop blaming the brokers for buyer stupidity !

Anonymous

If the buyers at paramount see this I am sure they would want their deposits back. No view no resale value.

Anonymous

Paramount should have bought this and extend the promenade here, if I were a buyer there I’d be livid hahaha

Anonymous

Imagine the 2 years of construction…. But then again they signed up for another 5-10 years of it anyway.

Anonymous

1 year of approvals, 1 year of presales, 3 years of construction. 5 years minimum.

Poor freedom tower

Anonymous

The area around the freedom tower should get landmark status and be a beautiful open area in the middle of the future busy and dense downtown. That’s how you make a city beautiful, by preserving some and rebuilding some others

Awesome! Now let’s extend the metrorail to everywhere lese in Miami and to the the beach and this city could finally be a better one

Wrong forum. This is about private fantasies, not public ones.

My God! How ugly can you get!!!
So square and flat on top! It’s massiveness hurts hurts the eye! A monument to bad taste and greed!
Miami needs spires and more creative thinking in architecture . Look at the world’s 10 tallest skyscrapers!

Anonymous

Yes, spires are so creative. Why don’t you offer your fully integrated and compliant design, price it, and then see if you can make a decent return on your investment. Cheers.

“The skybridges would include event spaces and skylounges as amenities for residents, as well as the city of Miami.”

Now that’s kool. And it also appears that the Metromover will be incorporated into this project.

No pedestrian bridge over biscayne. Put Biscayne on a diet and make it safe to cross.

i agree. we need this bridges over the streets – not building to building………….. but that would make sense so the city won’t do it.

Nice render but that’s all! This won’t happen not ever not in Miami… It’s to nice I’m 100% sure the board will find a reason to stop it… Some other developer will file some bogus lawsuit. After all that the render will be dumb down to nothing more then 2 square stucco buildings on pedestals as usual!

Such positive thoughts.

Why can’t them come up with super modern and unique buildings like in Dubai? what’s this thing?

Not the market for such an expensive design.

I love it. Build, build, build. There is a huge shortage of luxury condos in Miami – we need this very badly. I can’t wait.

Is that a pedestrian bridge over biscayne blvd?

Anonymous

Yes. The building is clearly ugly. The bridge is the best thing about it.

Anonymous

Probably built in public parking for AAA events if so the bridge would make sense.

Very Nice design, but will not be built.

I wouldn’t appreciate any tower that directly pulls attention from freedom tower. It’s our Statute of Liberty, Washington Monument, etc. should be a center jewel.

Anonymous

Agree 100%! Whoever proposed a Square has the right mindset. Just like any European city it would look amazing.

Anonymous

Miami architects don’t know how to design and build a Square. That takes a little inguinity, plus city leaders would make sure it’s watered down.

Horrible design😬

Just as ugly as the old renderings: https://www.thenextmiami.com/chateau-considering-combining-600-700-biscayne-mixed-use-project/

They should leave walkable space in front of the Arena, I don’t think this parking lot will ever have building on it

Anonymous

Someone proposed a square for that area and I think the idea is brilliant!

Anonymous

Why can’t they design something nice for the site like their projects in north beach and sunny isles? This is crap.

Anonymous

Wow a square would make that area so walkable and nice, that’s forward thinking. If only politicians could use their brains instead of their wallets.

Anonymous

It’s the perfect site for an iconic building. Not this crap.

The old renderings were beautiful and had crowns, spires, and articulation. Certainly a downgrade, but I suppose it could be worse.

This is trash compared to One Thousand Museum
