The last two months have been good months for new construction in Miami, with towers breaking ground from Fort Lauderdale to Brickell. A month ago (how did we miss this?) the Lord Norman Foster-designed Faena House, the residential portion of Alan Faena's Faena District project, quietly broke ground. Units feature wrap-around terraces modeled after Argentinian 'aleros' that connect the various rooms within each unit. Construction of the hotel portion of the project, in the neighboring Saxony Hotel, began last year.
Meanwhile, 1100 Millecento, that Related Group tower in Brickell designed by Carlos Ott and Pininfarina (the people that design Ferraris) is apparently breaking ground with a new contractor, although according to our archives they broke ground 6 months ago. What's with that?
Up in Fort Lauderdale, New River Yacht Club, another Related-built castle, is going up on the south bank of the New River, and filling in yet another section of the New River's by now quite extensive Riverwalk. It broke ground in December.
Finally, Chateau Beach, yet another glass mega-lux condo tower in Sunny Isles Beach broke ground during Art Basel last year. They had a big ground breaking ceremony that we couldn't attend because, well, it was during Art Basel.
