  • 705 parking spaces over four levels, including one underground
  • 12 floors total

The 2-acre project site is at 252, 268 and 286 Northwest 29th Street and 2801 Northwest Third Avenue.

Delivery is expected in 2018.

Has a pretty cool, west-coast vibe to it.

I like the Baroque aspect of the design.. at least it is different. The comments here reaffirm the notion that safety is the best policy in Miami.. a white box is the best way to go. Anything that deviates from it gets too much resistance.. this project, the art installation/mural at the SLS, Skyrise, the Innovation Tower, etc. It may be a different cast of characters hating on each of these designs, but the truth remains that the only designs that don’t seem to stir outrage are the ones that look like the new Melo tower by the symphony hall. Developers take note: the key to Miami’s heart is white stucco. Anything else and you will have hell to pay. I, for one, am supportive of ANY developer willing to take a risk. Even if the design choices are not entirely to my liking, I would prefer to see 100 risks taken with some successes and some failures than 100 mediocre boxes. Nobody falls in love with a city filled with mediocrity.

Overall a great design but the water tanks are out of place. Too Tribeca wannabe.
This is S. FL. I simply hate imitators

I like some aspects of the design…definitely the industrial look but it runs the risk of looking artificial

I hope a real light rail plan is coming soon. Wynwood will be on hell of a traffic trap, even worst than Brickell.

The design seems to be all over the place, bits and pieces stuck together by the corner Volume. Almost looks like a Sunset Place. I don’t believe Miami is in love with stucco boxes, is a matter of efficiency.For those of you that find the BOX “boring” you ought to try hanging your Art/Frames on a curved wall or laying out your furniture in a circular room.

Totally agree. I’m from the Northeast and this design is totally too NY/Philly for the Miami landscape. I do love the watertowers, however, b/c I’m a greenie. Otherwise, way too much concrete and too boring. So much of the new Miami architecture is super cool, unique, modern. This is a throwback to WWII era and reminiscent of our country’s manufacturing past. It doesn’t fit the landscape.

“doesn’t fit”

So have you actually been to Miami? We have and have had buildings from the 1920s-50s built in the same style as buildings in NY and Philly from that period. But merely looking at this project, it’s clear that it’s shaped much differently than anything from that era, so I’m not even sure how you arrived to this thought.

Frankly, the people of Miami are sick of the same white box+balconies formula that prioritises tourist tastes and eyes that will be gone in a weekend’s time over actual residents. And hell, just look at most of the comments on this site: people criticising the likes of Related and Arquitectonica

Some of the historic buildings you see in Downtown Miami have Chicago school architecture and Mediterranean Revival. IMHO, the best looking buildings in the entire city. Thank God we have a historic preservation board, or they would all be gone by now.
