The convenience of nearby transit facilities has eliminated the need for parking at a proposed development that would stretch 183 metres (599 feet) above 200 North Miami Avenue. Israeli-born American entrepreneur Moishe Mana is behind the 49-storey project that would contain 328 rental units, the maximum number of dwellings permitted on this lot by the current zoning regulations.
The pair of low-rise buildings on the property would be dismantled to make way for a slender tower composed of glass and concrete. Perforated metal screens provide another textured element to the facade, breaking up the building's exterior into rectangular blocks of varying sizes, except on the north elevation, where balconies have been affixed to the structure.
A fitness centre, pool, and social room are some of the amenities planned for the Zyscovich Architects-designed project, some of which will likely be situated near the expanse of greenery depicted about a third of the way up the tower. There, a massive cutout hosts a landscaped terrace, with structural support provided by two intersecting pillars.
The design of the development's ground plane is cognizant of the existing parkette to the north, paying homage to it by draping lush foliage over the stone-clad building entrance. Miami's Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to review the submitted proposal this summer.
