Three Groups Are Proposing To Build A 72nd Street Community Complex In Miami Beach

Three groups are vying for the right to build a community complex at 72nd Street in Miami Beach.

The bids are in response to a city request for proposals to redevelop a surface parking lot at 72nd Street and Collins Avenue.

All meet certain requirements placed by the city including green space and sustainability features such as parking spaces convertible to other uses in the future.

The three bids are led by:

Plans show that the Haskell bid would create a sloped ramp from the street to a rooftop green space with a soccer field.

The Kauffman Lynn approach would leave the green space at street level, as would the PCL proposal.

All three include features such as retail space, a rooftop pool, and a community center.

I ain’t gonna lie, that Haskell/Arquitectonica proposal is killing it!

Sort of ugly swiss cheese treatment of the parking garage openings.

Call it what you want, its a simple graphic pattern that looks somewhat MiMo and will age well

I’m just going to say it.
If I were Zyscovich I would be embarrassed by our project when compared to its competitors. It looks like it has a quarter of the budget of the others. And is basically just a big garage with a wimpy façade treatment and an Olympic size pool on top. (perhaps Kaufmen Lynn kept their hands tied?)
I think the Brooks+Scarpa one is the best, but the Soccer Fields on the Haskell Project are a nice touch. You know those will see a lot of use.

The Zyscovich project is clearly the worst…which probably means it’s what the city will choose…it looks like it’s probably the cheapest…basically a parking garage with a facade treatment.

More public soccer fields! This city should be a global soccer destination. Wtf is going on with Beckham’s stadium?

All these projects start off sounding and looking fab. A rooftop pool, mini golf, retail ground floor, twin apartment towers, an office tower, a hotel, a movie theater, a health club, a regional clinic, skating facility, artist studios and a performance space. But, bait and switch. They end up with a Sedanos, a Taco Bell and a couple of palm trees that never get fertilized. Before you criticize and give me the thumbs down…think about all the times you have seen this happen in Miami.

i’m happy to see that developers are getting rid of these parking lots and using the space for good projects.i’ve seen a few projects that are being built on underused parking lots on Miami gardens,Hialeah and North miami beach

The PCL proposal is the best one of the three. It is smaller than the others, it activates all four sides of the building, and it incorporates ground green spaces! What will Haskell do to stop the soccer balls from running into the street from such a high ground? Will the put up ugly nets?

Great looking project. Needs to include a road diet from 3 to 2 lanes along Harding!

They all look nice – I wonder if the Haskell one is even close to the budget or just a dream created without keeping the budget in mind.

I’m feeling the slope and greenery. But the use of the park should be different. You can’t put soccer fields up there. Ball is going over every 5 minutes.. Create mounds and large canopied trees so people can lay out. A nice park with a winding track for skating, maybe outdoor gym exercise equipment.

Brooks + Scarpa appear to actually WANT the job- the other two local architects show worn out and dull schemes- Miami needs new voices in our architecture

Going to be a tight race between two proposals, the third doesn’t stand a chance haha

I choose the Kaufmann Lynn/Zyscovich proposal

The only thing it has going for it is that it may have the lowest construction cost.
