South Beach’s Sexiest Self-Storage Only Stores Wine, Whatever The Sign Says.

When SoBe Wine & Self Storage was seeking approval to build its new facility on Alton Road in South Beach, a classy MiMo building with all the panache of a 1950s beach hotel that is downright gorgeous for a self storage facility, it went by another name: Urban Box Self Storage. Since its recent completion, however, the sign on the facade says something very different: Wine & Self Storage, a name just vague and cheeky enough to make people take a second look.

‘Florida Architecture’ Praised the Office in the Grove When it Was Brand New.

A building that is integrated with landscape and art: an office structure that is completely humanized, and architectural design which was dictated by the unusual site and the desire to give maximum views of the tropical environment: That is Office in the Grove. The building concept developed by Kenneth Treister, FAIA in 1970, offers a contemporary structure delightfully in scale with its environment and the people who make use of its facilities on a daily basis. Integrating art, architecture and landscape into a harmonious whole is an achievement, which will distinguish the building as a landmark for future generations to enjoy.

Addison Mizner’s Casa del Ensuenos in Palm Beach is Listed for $32.5M

The stately and historic Casa del Ensuenos in Palm Beach, designed by that narrow strip of money's most iconic architect, Addison Mizner, is on the market asking a generous $32.5 million. Curbed wrote something about it last week. Apparently the name probably means 'house of the dreams,' but more importantly, it's a Mizner! A good Mizner is worth its weight in Manolo Blahniks, and this one's a real gem.
