Okay, let the negative comments begin by the “expert” architects.

Curious to hear what your opinion is though?

My opinion? I think West Brickell could use at least fifty more apartment buildings like this and north of State Road 395, at least two hundred apartment buildings like this.

That’s just a generic opinion, non architecture related.
Anyhow,Architecture and design are subjective so don’t take opinions so personal..You’ll be happier in the long run.

I can’t give you an “architect’s” opinion because I’m not an architect. Now, I could be like some other commenters who come on this site and say things like “looks ugly, boring design, balconies too small or not big enough, what’s up with the zig zag window patterns, too tall, too short, and, doesn’t fit in with the neighborhood.

But to me, it’s like you said, those are “just generic opinions, non architecture related.”

You do not need to be an architect to comment on whether or not something looks good to you or not. That is still one thing left for free humans to freely state – how something taste to them, look to them, or feel to them. You all are tiring. No one has to justify the reason they perceive something to be good looking or not. That is why it is subjective. They can share the reason they believe it is ugly or not but you cannot fundamentally argue their taste. Just describe why your taste is different and leave it at that. Folks in this part of the country are not even good at being pretentious.

Wow.. in someone’s opinion saying a new building proposal is ugly or boring is supposed to be considered objective architectural criticism because we all have free speech? Thanks for breaking it down to me. Now I’ll use words for architectural critiquing like another anonymous did – “the cluttered balconies look cheap and nasty.” Now that’s really deep, and definitely not a “generic opinion and non architecture related.”

It’s decent. Not very tall, but glad to see more development in West Brickell, great for density.

I’m going to miss that Wendys. The proposed building is nice and makes better use of the land but it was convenient to walk over to Wendy’s for a cheap filling snack.

This project is going to be developed in a site to the NW of Central Station this is why it is called Soleste Central Station, the writer has his information and sources wrong…. INCREDIBLE!!!!! Hope they correct it… Wendy’s has 26,600 SF and fits 122 units not 350+ as they claim on the article…..

Andres

The correct address of the project is 218 NW 8 Street, not 218 SW 8 Street, the Wendy’s has nothing to do with this, you have made a big error, please correct ASAP!!!!!

There are few people that are as pro development as I am, however that being said I live in a “Soleste” building in Miami (Del Prado to be exact). The building is beautiful, the pool, jacuzzi, BBQ area, entertainment area. There is one huge problem, the walls are so thin you can hear your neighbor sneeze (no exageration). It’s hard to watch TV in your bedroom at night and listen to your neighbors TV. For those of you who treasure sleep because you work the next day, this building is not for you. Hopefully the Owners of this brand of building “Soleste” see this post and invest in insulation, every year the attrition rate of my neighbors is high due to this issue. I am moving to another building in a couple of weeks for this reason. The building is beautiful and shows well so it will maintain occupancy however once you live here and realize any given night you can’t sleep is really not acceptable.

Curious…Can you hear the neighbors from upstairs and downstairs? Or is it just the neighbors on the same floor? Fyi- I’m considering a move to that neighborhood.

Only your sides neighbors. The building is very beautiful and the management team in the office is great, unless they insulate the side walls it’s just a toss up as to whether you can sleep that night.

This is Overtown CRA BLOCK 46… The remaining portion of that block, which currently includes the low-rise Poinciana Village Apartments – West from Block 55, North from Block 45… MUCH NEEDED INFILL!

You post this same comment in every post with a render…Cheap and Nasty aren’t really words used to describe buildings, try a little harder…but i see you are more concerned on where to get your happy meal.

I’m pretty sure I heard a proposal from someone to build another building there about 1 to 2 years ago. I think I read it on this site.

Not likely – Burger King owns the last shopping plaza in front to BCC. The Whopper’s days are numbered, developers will build a skyscraper in its place.

Burger King doesn’t own the plaza

I totally appreciate the addition of ShakeShack at MaryBrick, but aside from Wendy’s and McDonalds at the entrance to Brickell… that’s about it! Could really use a Chick-fil-A ASAP. 🙁

We’ll get more fast food as more affordable rental buildings are built. They just won’t be at standalone locations anymore and will probably be located in west Brickell where rent is cheaper. Kind of like the Dunkin Donuts by the mertrorail station.
