"Miami and cars. They go together like piña and colada, right?

Well, maybe so. But one new luxury condo in the heart of downtown is making what is, for this Florida city, a bold move. The building in many ways fits the profile of recent development in Miami’s reviving core: It has 36 stories, 352 units, and 10-foot ceilings.

But as for parking? Zero of that."

Great news for Miami!

Its not that ground breaking. Centro will be the 4th recent tower built without parking (Loft 1 & 2 and MyBrickell).

Well, that is even more impressive. Do you have any articles handy about the other projects?

Loft 1 and 2 are boom era towers in the downtown section. Relatively cheap, small units, lots of young folks.

Mybrickell is just topping off south of the river in Brickell. Seems like it's tilted to higher earning crowd.

How does building a 100-300 unit tower in Miami with no parking work? Even here in SF practically every development comes with some ratio, which may range from 16 spaces for 299 units in an extreme case to an almost 1:1 ratio.

The city here has 83 million SF of office space, mostly confined with some of the best transit in America and a notably full range of dining/shopping/supermarket options anywhere you can walk, not to mention the bus system here is good. Miami's DT + Brickell has under 15 million SF I believe (someone correct me here), which means that a lot of the office employment that can put people in expensive tower rentals "luxury" style like they do in Miami and the SE is fairly limited and spread out throughout the city, and due to the river isn't the easiest to get around between DT and Brickell, even with the people mover. I know there's the Publix in Mary Brickell Village (how late is it open?), but honestly how can you live there without a car?

Supposedly Centro will have a car sharing station. Asking over $400/sq ft for a unit without parking may be a little much. The loft buildings, as Brickell stated, were priced towards a younger less affluent crowd who were more likely to be fine taking the metromover or busses everywhere. Would people dropping ~$500k for a 2-bedroom be as happy taking the bus? I'm not so sure. The studio units are starting at only $220k so they might get a younger, more "urban friendly" crowd in those units.

That said, there are several public garages near by where I'm sure someone could rent a spot if need be.

If they're being bought as pied-a-terres or 2nd homes by South Americans it might not matter as much also. There's no taxi culture here so to speak, but I doubt they'll have trouble finding rides when then need them.

I'm not stating as fact that that's who's buying. Just conjecture that it might work for them.

Wow! Very nice shot. I haven't visited in South Florida for a long time. I can bring it back a memory. I missed South Florida lots. It was so much change for a long time.

They also have an agreement to lease parking at a lot across the street, if necessary. And the article mentioned there is a WF under construction extremely close.

On another note, this submission (that won) for the renovation of the miami beach convention center is hot!

That proposal leaves a lot of empty space. Especially since the Miami Beach commission wants to nix the residential buildings on the left of the image basically leaving a giant empty lawn or concrete expanse.

Interesting...

Miami zoning board OKs considerable increase to Design District plan

Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/07/1...siderable.html

Quote:
fter more than three hours of discussion, testimony, and power point presentations, Miami’s Planning, Zoning & Appeals Board voted Wednesday to accept a revised plan for the overhaul of the Design District, changes that will considerably increase the number of commercial properties, residential units and parking spaces developer Craig Robins would like to build.

Board members voted 11-0 to pass on the recommendation to city commissioners ultimately responsible for accepting a plan that could turn what is now a sleepy retail and office intensive neighborhood just north of Midtown Miami into a more walk-able destination filled with green space, living space and high-end retail outlets.

The board accepted adding 12 parcels to the overall plan mostly along its western edge near North Miami Avenue, but turned down a zoning request that would have allowed a condominium on Biscayne Boulevard just north of I-195 known as Parcel 9 to build as high as 48 floors or 592 feet. Now it can only be built to 20 floors.

This tower is just big. Tall and very wide. Seems like it would support a lot more units. Must be some large condos.

More towers coming for the Cima site, the Paramount Park site and the site that curls around the Freedom Tower:

http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/07/2...proposing.html

Quote:
Taken together, South Florida could soon have at least 145 towers and nearly 20,700 units proposed for Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.

Contrast this total with the last South Florida condo boom that began in 2003 and ultimately resulted in 245 towers with nearly 49,000 units in the tri-county region’s seven largest coastal markets.

The rush to build new projects comes as less than 2,150 new condos — about five percent of the total developer inventory from the last South Florida real estate boom — were unsold as of March 31.

At the current transaction pace, nearly all of the oversupply of the developer units from the 2003 boom — and subsequent bust of 2007 — could be sold by the second half of 2014.

The reduction in unsold developer units combined with a competitive cash-dominated condo resale market — where less than 18,400 units are for resale in all of South Florida — and strong rental rates are prompting many buyers to seriously consider purchasing condos during the preconstruction process that can take up to three years.

As with South Florida’s last condo boom, Miami-Dade County has the greatest concentration of proposed projects with more than 90 towers and nearly 15,285 units planned as of July 17.

Broward County ranks a distant second with 26 towers and less than 2,125 units proposed. Palm Beach County is a third with 23 towers and nearly 2,100 units proposed.

On a market-by-market basis, developers in Greater Downtown Miami — the epicenter of South Florida’s last boom-and-bust cycle — are proposing at least 35 new towers with nearly 9,850 units and counting.

Developer created 84 towers with more than 22,200 units during the last boom-and-bust cycle that began in 2003 but only 600 new units remain as of March 31.

In anticipation of an eventual sellout in Greater Downtown Miami, South Florida developers have recently filed applications with the Federal Aviation Administration — the governmental entity that governs airspace — to obtain approval to assemble construction cranes within the next 15 months to build a 713-foot-tall tower with at least 60 stories at 600 Biscayne Blvd., a 710-foot-tall tower with at least 60 stories at 700 Biscayne Blvd, and a 610-foot-tall tower with 55 stories at 24 SW 4th St. on the north bank of the Miami River.

The total number of condo units to be featured in these three condo projects is unclear as the respective developers all said they were in the planning stages.

This is great news. Let the boom begin. This will result probably in very tall towers and maybe even a supertall. Fantastic!

If they build a huge tunnel in the airport, Miapolis and EWT will happen someday.

Hopefully the FAA won't have a fit. There the real problem with the supertalls.
