MIAMI | 54 West Flagler | FT | 35 FLOORS

Twin 43-Story Towers With ‘Secret Garden’ Planned On Flagler Street





Quote:
A Brooklyn developer is proposing twin 43-story apartment towers on what is currently a surface parking lot on Flagler Street in downtown Miami.

54 West Flagler would include a total of 391 units, along with ground-floor retail. A robotic parking garage with 185 parking spaces is also included.

Between the towers would be a “secret garden” of hanging plants. The design is inspired by both the Perez Art Museum and FIU’s Sky Lounge in Sweetwater.

Plans show that most of the units would be very small. The towers themselves would be squeezed onto a tiny 17,065 square foot lot, requiring a setback waiver. Miami’s UDRB will review the proposal late this month.

Alliance Capital is listed as the developer. Records show that the property is owned by Gutierrez Resnik Prop LLC, with an address on Alton Road.

Kobi Karp is listed as the architect.

Interesting design, but I hope the condo association has a healthy reserve budget for replacing those hanging gardens if/when a hurricane or tropical storm whisks them away. And a healthy liability insurance policy as well...

These are the hanging gardens @ the PAMM a few blocks away :

The height is impressive for such a tiny lot on Flagler Street. As for the hurricane risk the hanging gardens can be stored & removed prior to a hurricane. It's not like Miami doesn't have a lot of roof top garden terraces & courts too.

I just wish the towers could be taller than 450 feet since they will practically have no views in the middle of the CBD.



^ If this lot was half a block east of it's current location it's Zoning could support a super tall up to 1,010 feet high but not sure it's lot size could @ only 17,065 square feet.

Either way having two 450 foot residential towers proposed in the heart of downtown is impressive given the low rise nature of Flagler Street.

Not your typical design here for Miami. Looks great.

Board Approves Variance For Twin-Tower 54 West Flagler

Quote:
A Miami board has approved a variance needed to build a twin-tower residential project on Flagler Street.

The Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board voted on April 6 to allow for zero-foot setback above the eighth story of the project, due to a non-conforming lot size. Normally the Miami 21 zoning code would require a 30-foot setback on two sides.

In addition to the variance, the project is requesting five waivers that can be approved by city staff.

If built, the project would include two 43-story towers with 391 units. A “secret garden” would separate the two towers.


The owner of the property is a company controlled by Russell Galbut and Andrew Resnick, but Alliance Capital of Brooklyn has a contract to purchase it.

Unfortunately the eye catching design first shown has been toned down. This is now planned as a courthouse for the county.

Developer offers Miami-Dade a $300 million courthouse

Quote:
A Miami developer wants to build a $300 million courthouse for Miami-Dade in exchange for an $18 million yearly lease stretching into the next century and the right to convert the existing historic tower into a for-profit complex with shops and offices.

The unsolicited proposal by developer Russell Galbut would deliver Miami-Dade a modern courthouse a few steps across Flagler Street from the existing one built in 1928 — a government building so old it once held the trial of Al Capone.

While Galbut’s Crescent Heights would pay for construction, it would gain two significant sources of revenue from Miami-Dade to try and turn a profit during the 99-year deal.
