Auberge Is Revealed: 1,430 Units In Three Towers By Related Group (Updated)

Related Group is preparing plans for Auberge Miami, a three-tower development with a total of 1,430 units, according to documents obtained by TNM.

The project will be built at 1400 Biscayne Boulevard in downtown Miami, which Related acquired along with partners last year for $57.3 million. Related has already started advertising for Auberge Residences and built a sales center there.

Breakdown for the three towers:

  • Tower 1 – 59 stories, 310 units
  • Tower 2 – 59 stories, 498 units
  • Tower 3 – 49 stories, 568 units

An eleven story podium will include retail and restaurant space, amenities, and 1,629 parking spaces.

The combined square footage is 2,703,989 GSF, of which 1,645,933 is sellable. Related will be building up to the maximum number of 500 units per acre permitted by zoning rules on the property to get to 1,430 units.

Arquitectonica is the project architect.

 

Update: Related Group President Carlos Rosso tells TNM that the Auberge branding will be retained for this project. Wooden boards were temporarily installed at the sales center to protect from a tropical storm threat.

Damn, that is really boring. Same crap over and over. It’s the Related-Arquitectonica formula. Note how they selectively omitted Zaha Hadid’s 1000 Museum Tower on purpose in all the images. They didnt want to look bland, misplaced our out shown. Zaha has more design talent on one picky than Bernardo Fort-Brescia and his goons collectively. Jorge Perez will always hire the same architects with the local name that he could control to crank the same garbage to squeeze and control the market.

Jorge Perez “controlling the market?” He may be a shrewd businessman but even he knows he has fierce competition in Miami and “NO” one development entity controls the market. And what damage can the design of these towers do to the skyline of Miami where we have people governing that insist on allowing a structure designed like a gigantic “money clip or hairpin” to be built center-stage of it?

Are you kidding me? Have you seen the renders for 1000 Museum? They omitted EVERYTHING. It’s fair enough to omit under construction buildings because you never know what will happen, but 1000’s render looks like the Everglades.

Architectonica has single-handedly fucked up Miami prettty much every ugly building you see in Miami they are behind it. Look at the ugly design of the Miami Beach Convention Center they built years ago well guess what they are working on it again gat dammit with another ugly design. dammit why are so many developers go the cheap route wuth these guys?

Before you start calling an architect’s design ugly, you need to learn how to design and spell better sentences.

Looks almost exactly like One Brickell…and another partnership with Architectonica….boring…we keep seeing the same again and again from this duo. Do something unique and different!

Related is now known for squeezing as many units as possible with monstrosity projects rather than building quality condominiums and communities. Way too big…I would never want to live there.

“I would never want to live there.”

This is not a concentration camp so nobody will be forcing you to live there. And I guess you haven’t been reading articles about Miami running out of buildable waterfront land, which is why developers are trying to squeeze projects like these onto every inch of land they own in that area in order to take advantage of what waterfront views they have.

Can’t say it’s the most beautifully designed project, but it’s very much needed. The more those empty lots in that entire region are covered up, the better.

Why do some of you people have so much disdain for the Melody apartment building? It’s not like there’s 500 highrise buildings in the area and Melody is the “Ugly Duckling” amongst them that sticks out like a sore thumb.

What the hell are they doing? 1,400 MORE units?! Complete cannibalization of The Related Group and the ICON brand. I hope they rethink this and build this next cycle. It’s on the wrong side of town. If they want to build now, build a rental project. Otherwise, sit tight…

Do you have the slightest idea about how these types of projects go from marketing and selling to ground breaking? Perez and the Related Group took a beating when the last building boom went bust in Miami, so don’t worry, they won’t make that mistake again.

This is the type of project that needs to be built right around the Arsht Center where the high density in that area in the future will hopefully be enough to make Arsht self reliant and take it off the taxpayers dole for survival.

if “taking a beating” means getting bailed out by a lender while still making management fees after singlehandedly glutting the market and causing the meltdown and being responsible for the misery of thousands of other people while building a mediocre product and then coming back and selling all the units anyway only to the do same thing again this cycle, then yeah, they took a beating.

A good number of these units are sold to investors who in turn rent them out. So every condo tower will always have rentals. Many of our clients feel that they would get a better deal from a rental project than from an individual owner, but that is simply not the case. Take for instance the new SoMa in Brickell, they advertise rentals starting at $1800 but then they nickel and dime you, for fees such as water, trash removal, parking, pet rent, etc, and by the end of the day their prices are over $2100. This is not the case when you rent from an owner, because these extras are included in the advertised rent, and apples to apples you can get a much better unit for the same price.

Regarding this particular project The Related Group is looking to the future, yes this area may be “on the wrong side of town” for now, but that will not be the case in years to come. Furthermore people who complain about rents being too high should welcome huge projects such as this one. The influx of thousands of new units will put more inventory in the market and help offset the demand which in turn will stabilize prices and maybe even bring them down a bit. That is good for renters, and for those who can afford to purchase in this particular project will also likely see a good return once Miami World Center, 1000 Museum, The Shops on Biscayne, and what ever projects are completed by the Melos and possibly even Genting are completed.

MYTH: “The influx of thousands of new units will put more inventory in the market and help offset the demand which in turn will stabilize prices and maybe even bring them down a bit. ”

Just like all the new construction (Brickell House, Milecento, Nine at Mary Brickell, etc) in Brickell, right? Right?

Right. Have you not noticed how prices suddenly stagnated and started a slight reverse? Think that would have happened with limited inventory? Go home, you’re drunk on delusions.

@ First Anonymous – I hope you are still in High School and have not yet taken Economics 101. Supply and demand is a very simple concept, that can be explained by visualizing a children’s seesaw, if the demand “weighs” more than the inventory, prices go up. If the demand weighs less than the inventory, prices go down.

The reason why rents have been rising even after Brickell House, Nine, etc, is because the demand is STILL higher. The day when too many condos are built and developers are desperate for buyers and renters, then (and only then) the prices will stabilize and MAYBE even go down.

what’s that 5th image from top (the one with trees in middle of road)? It can’t be Biscayne Blvd because a) currently no trees and b) their other renderings that show Biscayne Blvd don’t have trees in middle of road

Related will shot themselves in the foot. Every building is exactly the same. And with all this inventory they will be competing with themselves in every project. They are preparing for the pre-construction market to head south.

Have you ever tried to tell apart Rosario Candela’s 1920s buildings in Manhattan? Or the Haussmannian blocks in Paris? Or Vancouver’s point block towers?

Large-scale city-building always involves repetition, and unless it’s a super-luxury building, this isn’t a bad thing.

just an estimated guess, but the smaller tower 3 in back with so many units in it is likely to be a rental, meaning this would only bring about 800 new units onto the market. 310 units for a 60 story tower means nice big units, maybe a hotel on the lower floors.
