Signage Installed At Overtown Property Across From Virgin MiamiCentral Where 32-Story Tower Planned

Virgin MiamiCentral continues to ignite development in the surrounding area, with the new owner of the Krystal Tower site recently installing signage at the site.

In February, BH Group submitted plans for a 32-story tower at the former Krystal site. A partially built shell has been on the property for around a decade after an office project was halted there during a recession.

3 MiamiCentral, including a future Publix location, is across the street.

BH group is planning a tower with 32 stories. It will include at least 154 residential units, 79,180 square feet of offices and 4,400 square feet of retail, along with 251 parking spaces.

In March, the design of the tower was tweaked at the request of UDRB board members. It was then approved.

Studio Baigorria is the architect.

The revised design presented in March:

There is going to be so much density coming there thanks to the Virgin Miami Central and MWC.

Overtown is going be changing quickly in the next few years. I’m hoping the other 5 other proposed projects in this area get off the ground soon.

Not a beauty but at least this site is finally getting a tower that will be fulling built and it adds infill. I’m sure the publix that will eventually open nearby will be happy for more near by residents.

Okay, much better.. but these architects do need to design residential buildings in Miami with more pronounced balconies. I mean, when I see residential buildings in cities in Canada that look like they should be in Miami and vice versa, sometimes I can’t help but shake my head in bewilderment.

If you’re definition of “more pronounced balconies” is less scattered everywhere and zigzagging up a building like the stuff Arquitectonica excretes, I agree.

No balconies? I guess the climate is just too cold…..

This should be a quick build, foundation work is already competed, just have to check for cracks in the exposed concrete in case plants started to grow from them.

Ditto with the rebar; make sure that the exposed bars haven’t corroded / lost section

One of the ugliest buildings ever proposed in Miami. Let’s hope this one meets the same fate as the last one.

Uh yeah, that shell of an unbuilt building we’ve been looking at for over ten years definitely would be better to look at.

Sheesshh!.. sometimes I wonder why I even waste time reading the comments section of TNM.

We are in the minority, everyone else on here seems to think it’s not great but fine. The architect doesn’t even have a website of their work, just an interior design page on Facebook. This design is not at all adequate to meet the most basic architectural criteria

You can be one of the people who complains about the design of this project until you’re blue in the face but I doubt the developers will go back to the drawing board because some of you hate it. You do have to admit one thing though, it’s still a better alternative to what’s sitting there now.
