Architecturally adventures Walgreens Drug Stores may have to remain a Miami Beach phenomenon for now (see here, and here, for example), as the much anticipated, flamboyant, fabulous Walgreens that was being designed by Demandt Architecture for a site at 296 SW 7th Street has been canceled. One of the architects, Bob Brown, has confirmed the cancelation to Curbed, while the sale of the land by Walgreens to an entity called Marathon Lodging was first reported by the Real Deal. The design had a pedestrian-oriented entrance and brise-soleil facade, a grand staircase, and parking and greenery on the roof.
