Dadeland Station 2.0

Good, the Civic Center are can use something like this.

It’s more like Miracle Center 2.0. It needs Downtown Dadeland 2.0 along Northwest 13th Terrace and 14th Avenue to connect it to Civic Center Station.

Just a couple blocks away from the large residential project currently going up, Mill Creek’s Modera River House.

Yes. You can easily see it driving east on 826 at 12th St. It’s on the right (across from Winn Dixie) as you’re approaching the medical campus on the left.

Horrible planning and architecture. They don’t learn from the failures of projects like Coco Walk and Sunset Place. Yes, it’s a boon to the area and I”m happy about that but there is no respect for the river, or aesthetics.

I don’t see this as being anything like sunset place or coco walk. This has large anchors that will draw people in. It is more like Miracle Center as others have eluded to in previous posts.

Tenant-wise, no. By design, yes. For the most part, the retail is closed inwards ignoring the strengths and opportunities which the location offers along the river. Las Olas Riverfront failed for the same reason. Why do you think the Omni mall failed while Bayside Marketplace flourished?

Yes, it’s big box stores, but bad urbanism is no longer a common trait for them, you see. Look at Midtown Miami and the fact it changed a dilapidated neighborhood and rail yard into a hotspot.

Also, Miracle Center/Marketplace is a miserable hellhole which formerly was a failed urban mall, later turned into a stacked big box crap sandwich with still very little urban interaction along one of Miami’s most beautiful streets. Parking is still awful and the property is poorly maintained. Someday I look forward to the whole Coral Gate stretch from Sears to Staples redeveloped into a mini town center in a style comparable to Merrick Park and Downtown Dadeland.

The interior looks beautiful, but the exterior is an ugly cluttered and boxy mess typical of Stantec. No interaction on the river is especially poor urban planning. What about some shade trees like oaks on the movie lawn so it’s not dead for most the day? Maybe create connectivity to Sewell Park? So much for Miami21 again…

In a perfect world, yes. But this project is a catalyst for an undesirable area so understandably it has to work through the parameters of a strict budget.

I disagree. It’s a valuable strip of vacant riverfront land between Marlins Park and Civic Center, and needs connectivity as a catalyst to allow revitalization so new development can crystallize where it’s desired. All this project will do is clog up the roads with more vehicular traffic. Also, I fail to see budgetary constraints on turning it inside out and less parking.

There’s retail and restaurant on the first level on both the street and river side as well as a river walk. Don’t know what you’re looking at.

At the first level, sure. The rest is clearly a wall with ugly scattered strips of windows, when the mall corridors ought to face the river and residential facing the street above retail, rather than clumped altogether at the side.

There are no mall corridors. Look at the floor plans. It’s open similar to Dadeland Station

You’re missing the point. The point is the OUTDOOR mall corridors are in the interior instead of facing the river as good urbanism tells us. Dadeland Station has an excuse as it’s along an elevated rail line.
