Revealed: Arquitectonica-Designed One Island Park In Miami Beach By Related Group

Related Group is moving forward with the approval process for an ultra-luxury condo tower called One Island Park on Miami Beach’s Terminal Island.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

One Island Park is proposed to include 90 residential units.

To win approval for the plan, Related is proposing to build a new 50,000-square-foot city fleet maintenance and sanitation facility that the developer says will result in improved services at no cost to taxpayers.

On June 5, the City of Miami Beach Commission unanimously voted to refer the proposal to the City’s Land Use and Development Committee.

“We are pleased with the Commission’s vote to move One Island Park forward in the review process and look forward to delivering a new, upgraded City maintenance facility at no cost to taxpayers,” said Jon Paul Perez, Vice President, Related Group. “Our plan will bring a boutique residential building that will reduce the impact on traffic for surrounding areas, compared to the land’s current industrial and office zoning, which only allows for developments that significantly increase traffic.”

One Island Park will generate more than $2.9 million in annual tax revenue to the city compared to just $10,500 now, Related says. The proposed zoning change is also a lower intensity and could result in less traffic than what is currently allowed, according to the developer.

I like it.Even the location. Good Design by Architectonica on this one.

William

This is bad for the coast guard base. They will likely reduce operations and or eliminate the base. This zoning change should be blocked and the developers should only be allowed to build what it is currently zoned for. Zoning is there for a reason. Changing it would be a significant setback for the community.

Waaawww.. poor coast guard, can’t find another area to relocate to.

Life shouldn’t be so unfair….

So they will build office for 450 employees , and the City wont get their maintenance facility.
Zoning allows it.

Read the Zoning Code before you opine.

discussion. Type your comment here….

Hope city negotiates better deal for tax payer. City gives 50k SF of ocean front density to the developer’s condo tower in exchange for the developer building a new city facility worth $18M.video city commission https://miamibeachfl.new.swagit.com/videos/28839?ts=4969

A stunning design!! I’m sure residents from SB will complain about view blocking but oh well.

Meanwhile in Miami, we are still getting box buildings that look like it’s the 1960’s like the one replacing Perricones.

right ?? all of the new buildings by downtown are big white boxes. with phone numbers plastered on them. communist china (minus the phone numbers) boring. this is great.

Anonymous

part of that is thanks to tax assessment – open space under roof gets taxed just as high as building out to the edge of the roof, so financial disincentive.

Im thinking of the least 10 condos to be built in downtown, and none are big white boxes. Unless you are referring to 1000 Museum

I like it. Great job for a change. looks unique and will really stand out. love it

Anonymous

It’s a great location because of the unique unobstructed views of downtown Miami and Miami Beach.

That’s all it will take to sell out the units. It’s all about the views, views, views. It’s not like the majority of these will be anything but 2nd or 3rd home vacation properties. The proximity to the high way to get in and out fast to do things is a plus.

The traffic is already a nightmare at this intersection. The 90 units will make that worse. There should have been a bypass built a long time ago with a service road for the islands

Anonymous

??? Traffic?
There are 75,000+ average annual vehicles daily driving past.
When (If) you think about it, 90 units will not impact the traffic even slightly.

Neither would the threatened office building. Related trying to bully their way like galbut did.

Neither would an office building.

If you don’t like traffic, then move!!! I don’t know why all these people who whine about traffic and live in the city think that they don’t add to it. Geez, deal with it or gtfo!

I’m challenging the architectural firms to be more inspired. How many drunken, Salvador Dali-inspired midrises and high rises do we need to dot our skyline?

To the left of every cruise ship entering, we have the historic and mediterranean revival buildings of Fisher Island. And to the right…this thing?

Be inspired. Make it remininescient of a lighthouse. Do something unique. We don’t need another melting clock of a building.

MIAMI DESERVES BETTER.

Make it guitar shaped

Hahahah….smh

You guys are saying how nice the building looks an how unique it is. At the same time I can’t help but notice how similar It looks to Aston Martin residences! It’s basically the little brother to their render… Just when you thought architectonica had finally designed something nice you realize it was inspired by another firms work!

Lol so lame. Typical Related Arquitentotica collaboration. Some waves and label it ultra luxury. Will probably come with IKEA finishes.

I’m ready for some out of state developers to build locally and start competing with these below average projects.

1. Glass
2. Not a “Box” design

What more do you want?? An all-white Box? Lol

Hater. Go on…do better.

He’s right, that design is pathetic!

Related projects differ significantly in the finishes.
Even the Brickell Heights towers (not white boxes) that look very similar to the SLSLux (not a white box) are extraordinarily different.

Apogee South Beach has very nice finishes.

Geez when will Related stop using Arquitectonica. This is the same ole usual crap that they put out as if this company doesn’t know how to design anything else.

Anonymous

Most firms chug out very similar designs. You can tell Calatrava’s or Gehry’s work, or even Hadid’s because they are all in many ways their “signature” style. We just have crappy developers that don’t want to pay for something different and more expensive to build.

Anonymous

How many of Calatrava’s or Gehry’s designs do you see in Miami? Aquitectonica’s stuff is lame, boring, and repetitive. Related should cut it out with this crap.

Anonymous

As usual, you jumped the gun. All of Architectonica’s buildings look similar, just like all of Calatrava’s or Gehry’ or Hadid’s. That’s what they do. They find some shapes and forms that define who they are and their buildings resemble each other in some form. Then they try something new, and they copy those for a decade or so. The fact that we don’t see much from Gehry (1), Hadid (1), or Calatrava (0) is because developers DON’T WANT TO SPEND THE MONEY TO BUILD THAT CALIBER OF BUILDING. Please hire someone really good when you build yours. BTW I don’t work for Architectonica…I’m just not a hater troll like you.

Good grief … As yet another “Anonymous” Man to another [this is my first time posting], you reeeeally need to grow up. Like FOR REAL, for real. I’m embarrassed for you, smh.

What is it about comments sections that brings out the worst in people?

Anon

it’s very simple… online anonymity is what brings the worst out of people.

If Related knew what they were doing, they would have different types of products in different locations that appeal to different markets. They would have different price points, and they would hire architects that they can trust to do good work.

Oh wait… they do all of that.

Maybe they should stop that, read this blog, and change everything to appeal to the 12 people commenting here.

If only it would end up looking anything like this. In the end, you know it wont.

The only thing good about this location is it’s water front. Not even in a luxury way like the other islands, here you are surrounded by highway, city fleet, coast guard, and the port. But I guess you can look past all that for some nice city views in the background.

So Related/Arquitentotica are capable of producing a solid project like this, yet almost everything built in Miami proper (especially Edgewater) the last ten years has been absolute shite.

Interesting. I love the design but let’s be clear, MiamiBeach will gift the land to Related group. For that gift they will in-turn gift a 50,000 sq. Ft of new fleet maintenance center, all while gifting their pockets $Millions of dollars!?!? I’m all in favor of progress but Related should pay fair market value for this land and with that money the city can pay them to incorporate the 50,000 into the building.

“Our plan will bring a boutique residential building that will reduce the impact on traffic for surrounding areas, compared to the land’s current industrial and office zoning, which only allows for developments that significantly increase traffic.” *** spoken like true graverobbing scumbags pushing their narrow minded greedy perspective to justify their arrogance. I suspect another crappy quality project.

The coast guard would probably leave that location if this was allowed to be built. Big negative financially and for the community. Related should not be allowed to build more than the currently zoned 4 story….. Very sad that Related continues to pursue this knowing full well that this would have such a huge negative. Hopefully Miami Beach will push back.

why would they leave?

Exactly. Who cares?? You aren’t buying. But the tax dollars are helpful for dealing with local problems.

Its on the causeway next to a intersection with street lights. Plus some people want to be next Miami Beach and downtown Miami but isolated like this building.

Anonymous

It’s right next to a divided roadway which has 150,000 vehicles a day. Not sure I’d call that isolated. Plus City fleet facility too.

Anonymous

So are a half dozen towers south of 5th that routinely sell for 7 and 8 figures. Towers near MacArthur causeway aren’t a detriment to sales.

well, they can walk places!

Your logic says that fisher island isnt isolated because they also have to use that 150k vehicle intersection

Anonymous

Then they should just buy on Fisher Island.

People will love this and buy it for the following reasons.
#1. It’s in Miami with no state offer local taxes
#2. Privacy. There are no neighbors looking in. No homeless people sleeping on the baywalk in front of your condo.
#3. Excellent views.
#4. 10 Minutes to MIA.
#5. Fast ingress & egress to Inter state 395.

Add that to the fact that
#6. It’s brand new (not used. With the latest energy efficiency and conveniences)

People commenting here dont understand that, but Related does. Related builds.
