Viñoly’s Miami River Project Submitted To City Officials For Review

KAR Properties has submitted plans to Miami’s Planning Department for Miami River.

The plans, prepared by architect Rafael Viñoly, call for twin 60-story towers, connected at the top. The lower portions of the tower will be dedicated to condo use, while the upper floors wil be a mix of commercial, lodging, and residential use. The towers top off at a height of 779-feet.

Five condos are located on each floor between levels 7-46 in the two towers. Units are to be accessed  by a common hallway, rather than by private elevator.

Levels 56-59 are connected at the top, and are accessible by express elevators running along the exterior of the towers. A mix of commercial (likely restaurant) and residential space is planned there, along with 20 hotel units.

In total, the project will include 402 residential units, 58,063 square feet of commercial space, and 516 parking spaces. The developers are modifying a MUSP previosuly approved for the site, and have requested review by the UDRB at a meeting tomorrow.

Boston’s Sasaki Associates is the landscape architect.
