Renderings Of Melo's Melody Tower Aren't Very Melodic

New, 9 comments

Melo Group's rather blasé 36-story, 497-residential unit – the maximum permitted under the zoning code – Melody is now under review at the Planning Department. As the name evokes, it will be just to the north of the Arsht Center, and will also include about 10,000 square-feet of commercial space. ExMiami must have visited in sunglasses and a hat, because they scored the renderings. Aside from the parking garage's vague reference to the Arsht Center's pronounced diagonal strokes, there's not a whole lot going on, from architects Itec Design. Maybe that explains the multitude of street level renderings emphasizing the pedestrian zone, and the sidewalk in front of the building, but even those seem a bit lifeless. It's across the street from the opera, and there's no pizzaz.—Margina Demmer
