Terra & Apollo Propose Twin 52-Story Towers To Replace Downtown Miami Garage

Quote:

Terra Group and partner Apollo Global Management have submitted a proposal to redevelop downtown Miami’s College Station Garage with two towers.

The two towers are being designed by architect Bermello Ajamil. They feature a “striking and iconic” design with vertical ribs that will “crown” both towers.

The height of the two towers will both be 52 stories, or 640 feet above ground.

The project is proposed to include:

856 residential units (managed by Common Living, a co-living company)
1,533 parking spaces
181,546 square feet of office
Residential amenity spaces
16,249 square feet of retail
The existing garage is a seven-story building with 1,439 spaces. The new development would also have seven full levels of parking – and the parking floors will be lined with residential.

The project would be built in phases, allowing the existing garage t0 remain partly open while the first phase is under construction.

Completion of the first phase is estimated for 2026, with the second phase in late 2027.

The developer are proposing a 99-year lease, with rent payments throughout that gradually increase.

A partnership between Related Group and ROVR has filed a competing bid. An MPA committee has ranked the Related/ROVR proposal first, according to the Real Deal.

The MPA’s Off Street Parking Board is scheduled to vote on the proposals at a meeting on February 2.

Related/ROVR Propose 3 Towers To Replace Downtown Miami Parking Garage

Related Group and partner ROVR Development have submitted a proposal to redevelop downtown Miami’s College Station Garage with three towers.

The three towers are being designed by Arquitectonica. They feature an “iconic” design cascading at different heights with asymmetrical curves that will be illuminated at night, the developers say.

The height of the three towers will range between 39 and 48 stories.

The project is proposed to include:

1,200 rental apartments (average units size: 722 square feet)
1,357 Miami Parking Authority parking spaces
Residential amenity spaces
Ground floor retail, with a potential fire station, urgent care, and art center
The existing garage is a seven-story building with 1,439 spaces. The new development would have eight full levels of parking.

I swear if there’s already a thread for this somewhere I might explode.
Also I prefer the first bid with the 2 towers based on how it looks, but the second bid is better on most other things, especially with affordable housing.
Here are some more pics.

Cool. I preferred the 2 towers design for aesthetics but this is definitely better for the community and city

Per Chris:

Construction to be in early 2023 per developers.

Draft agreement was prepped back in June and project is moving forward.

With the way rentals have been going, those 1200 units will fill up quick.
