The grungy old Publix supermarket on Le Jeune Road is being replaced by a brand spanking new store with a parking garage and 18 story residential tower, and here are the renderings, via exMiami. The tower appears to have a rather generic Mediterranean revival design, with rooftop pool, and little more than a pergola disguising the top level of the parking deck from the world to see. Sure it's an improvement over what's there but as one exMiami commenter says "I'm sure those residents will be thrilled to be looking out onto that parking lot on the roof. Big opportunity misses to create green space there."
