Three Cranes Could Be Installed Within Weeks At Art Plaza

Melo Group is preparing to go vertical on their twin-tower Art Station (or Art Plaza).

According to a filing with the Federal Aviation Administration earlier this month, three cranes are scheduled to be installed be installed on the site around March 1.

The proposed heights for the three cranes are:

  • 509 feet above ground
  • 454 feet above ground
  • 414 feet above ground

In the application, the project is referred to as Art Station. On Melo’s website and in previous filings, it is called Art Plaza.

When completed, there will be about 655 apartments split between two 33-story towers.

That area is about to get populated and popular with regular, local folks.

Area will attract younger people, local shops, employment and urban crowds similar to Wynwood.

The building looks great!!! Both this building plus the one being built right across the street next to the metro-mover station will be a great addition to the area. so far these two are the best rental buildings the Melo have done!!! Keep up the good job!

Interesting looking building!!! The Mondrian at the garage gives it a hipster touch!! I like it!!
The one right across by the same developer is looking great too, I live a few blocks away and I’ve seen what they are doing to the ground and so far it looks great looks to be FULL RETAIL AT THE GROUND FLOOR!! Cool floor pattern too!! Kudos to the Melo!!

You don’t get out much. Do you? The thing looks like a ripped zipper on the side of the building.

Melo, you are leaving a legacy of buildings in Miami. PLEASE be more conscious of the design. Good design does not cost more, really!

Oh look, another complaining do nothing criticizer.

Appreciating what this developer is doing to an area that has consisted of nothing but embarrassing empty lots for so long does not cost anything, really!

its not enough to just build something. this area is going to be built up regardless of melo. melo isnt doing Miami a favor, its the other way around. never forget that. frankly, another high end residential area isn’t needed in that spot, we need parks and public transportation, and commercial high-rises.

heh heh, “commercial high-rises built around parks… okay genius.

And will somebody point out to this numbskull the parks and public transportation that are in that area already.

Apart from the bizarre pixelated mess which I assume it the parking component, I can’t see anything wrong with it.

Melo is building density which is needed to be a real city so kudos to them for that.

Their building designs are however some of the ugliest being built anywhere in the world. Cities in China that nobody even knows the name of have far better buildings than these atrocities. No amount of gushing by the brainless cheerleaders on this site who applaud any building built will change the fact that their buildings are ugly.

By contrast, Jade Signature in Sunny Isles Beach designed by Herzog de Mueron is a phenomenal design that will win awards just like their world famous Lincoln Road garage which is one of the most lauded and recognized recent buildings in the world. That project put Miami back on the great architecture map ten years ago and drew dozens of starchitects to design their own trophy buildings in Miami.

Melo’s hulking, squat, bulky, bland piles of nothing will never inspire any similar appreciation or furthering of good architectural design.

You are comparing apples to oranges.

Why not ask the Jade developer – Fortune International Group and designed by Herzog & de Meuron to design new buildings in the A&E district?

These buildings are meant to house people in reasonably modern comfort at market rates or less… They are hugely successful in jump starting development in otherwise dormant areas … I’ve seen countless articles about housing in China… Hundreds of drab brown squares built to help stimulate economy…. Melos buildings are just fine for what they are accomplishing….plenty of young people living there….

Wrong, drab brown squares and ugly white boxes take away community value rather than build it.

You are so right… Those empty lots are way more active

“Melo’s hulking, squat, bulky, bland piles of nothing will never inspire any similar appreciation or furthering of good architectural design.”

Those lots that the Melo Group are building on sat empty with nothing on them but weeds and trash for years and years and years! If we were to wait for people like you to approve a design before ground is broken on just a plain residential building, we’ll be looking at nothing but blocks and blocks of empty weed and trash strewn lots for more untold years and years and years.

Now take your nitpicking snobbish behind somewhere and chillout!
