Here's a little construction milestone for ya. Hyde Beach House, the last section of the little cluster of mostly-Hyde-branded condominium projects straddling the Hallandale Beach/Hollywood Beach border developed by the Related Group, has reached fifty percent completion and is eighty percent sold out, according to a publicist for the project.
Edgewater, the large neighborhood lining Biscayne Bay immediately north of Miami’s urban core, is still booming. Seven residential condominium towers are either under construction or in closings, with multiple rental apartment buildings under construction as well, and a plethora of other buildings have opened within the last ten or so years.
The architecturally flamboyant Museum Parking Garage in the Miami Design District is almost done, and boy is it something else. Check out these pictures of the almost completed structure by Miami's truly great architectural photographer Robin Hill.
Boy, Lincoln Road has really jumped the shark. Look what's coming: Capital One Bank, known for its silly but rather jarringly un-Lincoln Road-ish "What's in Your Wallet?" commercials is apparently opening a cafe on Lincoln Road. Signage with the bank's logo and the word 'cafe' is clearly visible at the construction site.
The Miami Seaquarium is building itself a big snazzy new entrance. The grand fins, topped with flags, are currently under construction. It looks like they're bringing a little more MiMo back to the aquatic park. Check out the construction here.
If you were lucky enough to enter Art Basel Miami Beach this year through the VIP entrance you got a little treat: a mini construction tour through the future grand lobby of the Miami Beach Convention Center. The whole thing, although not a very long tour, was pretty cool. It began in the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, crossed Meridian Avenue, which is closed to traffic and the public during construction, and then shot through one side of the lobby, down a back hallway, and into the convention center. Check out photos of the entire route here.
The removal of a former service yard (along with, sadly, the felling of a few majestic trees by Hurricane Irma) has expanded Flamingo Park in the heart of South Beach by quite a lot. Check out all this new green space! Now they just need to landscape it. What do you think about this new swath of green space in South Beach?
The newest additions to Mt. Sinai Medical Center, a new emergency department and surgical tower, are racing to completion. The ER (or, ahem, ED?) will be 40,000 square feet with over 50 private treatment rooms and the tower will have 12 state-of-the-art operating rooms and 154 private patient rooms with bay views.
