Comments on: 55-story riverside condo heads to OK http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/01/15/55-story-riverside-condo-heads-ok/ The Newspaper for the Future of Miami Mon, 15 Dec 2014 20:13:57 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0.1 By: Jua Carlos http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/01/15/55-story-riverside-condo-heads-ok/#comment-1236 Tue, 04 Feb 2014 15:38:58 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=20120#comment-1236 I can not believe the City authorities will allow a so massive building in a very tiny lot. Today Brickell is already crowded and it makes difficult to drive in the area sepending a lot of time in there. Also this is again to the residents quilty life. Would not you believe that The Brickle City Center will be more than enough!. And… what about the river and green areas. People or authorities Responsible for making it happens or not will think this twice . This is agaist the resindents, the enviroment and and the beuaty of one of the key icons of Miami ” Brickell”.

Please. Think twice. Mistakes will impact a buch Brickell residents and enviroment.

I agree the City Center is enough. The small amount of greenway and riverwalk that we have needs to stay and even grow, but definitely NOT be dimished. Brickle is an amazing area that Miami is very proud of. Let us not let our officials distroy the gem we have.

I know the proposed site and it is much to small and narrow to support a 55 story condo. It will distroy any potential for a south bank river walk and create a huge wall of concreet along the river.

It’s a bad idea! A much smaller scale building would be a better fit for the site. The attraction of Brickle centeral area as a low rise open area is being destroyed by to many high rise building in such a small area. The Brickle City Center is enough!

City planners need to put a stop on so many tall buildings (above 30 stories) and do an impact study on the consequences of this many tall building in such a confined area.

I think the owner is seeking approval to drive up the value of the land and can’t be serious about putting a 55 story building on a .34 acer lot that is less than 100 feet deep. (:-(

This could very well be something that “floats” over the garage wall that is perforated to allow ventilation while disguising the cars. Which sounds like a plan. Still, I like what the Russkies have come up with for their Sochi Winter Olympics Games, a giant interactive push-pin 3D portrait maker that covers a wall roughly the same size of the EDGE: http://bit.ly/19uU4ab Perhaps the developer could buy it off MegaFon (the Russian telecom company sponsoring the pavilion) following the Olympics and hang it on the garage wall instead. It’s pretty cool, probably a lot cooler than what EDGE came up with since the 3D animated bas relief would engage people walking along the River Walk (a booth at ground level takes 3D portraits and then transmits the images to the actuators and lights on the wall producing a short-lived 3D portrait of the person below). These portraits could be interspersed with programmed selections of say, the presidents on Mount Rushmore, Tequestas (whatever they looked like), the Mona Lisa, etc. At Sochi, this is all free but if used here, EDGE could charge a nominal fee for those seeking to see their face on the wall that would pay for maintenance of the animated mural. You can learn more from the Swiss company iart that designed it at http://bit.ly/19uTTvj

Meetings of the board are open to the public, but these are not public hearings. It is up to the chairman of the board to decide whether participation of the public is allowed. For more information, call the city’s Planning & Zoning Department at 305-416-1400.

By then the city won’t be able to do anything about it. No consideration for the public or respect for the river.

This building is destroying what makes downtown/brickell so beautiful (open space!). All of a sudden, when crossing the bridge into Brickell pedstrians and those in cars will be hit in the face with a large concrete wall. It doesn’t matter whether there is art or not to beautify this building – it still becomes a wall of concrete destroying the beautiful views of Brickell. In addition, the view of the river is going to become swallowed by this concrete wall. I don’t understand what the commission was thinking when approving this. I also don’t think hiding cars is possible. You need ventilation for safety of the residents and building so you can’t completely cover the wall with art. This is just plain aweful.

Can Miami Today inform us of who we need to contact in the city/county to step in and and stop this project from happening until something better is proposed for the city and its residents?
