Hey, Let's Examine Rafael Viñoly's Miami River Waterfall

New, 1 comment

The 30 foot tall, three story waterfall that starchitect Rafael Viñoly has designed for the as-yet-unnamed tower (River Village is a working title) that Kar Properties is building on the Miami River will appear to fall out of the building's amenity deck pool, and sort of give the impression that it's flowing in to the Miami River.

It won't of course, and will actually be separated from the river by a river walk significantly wider than the zoning code requires, along with a generous reflecting pool, according to renderings and plans submitted to the City of Miami which The Next Miami acquired. The pool will actually continue underneath the waterfall, becoming the centerpiece for the building's driveway. The building's ground floor will have two large residential lobbies, loading docks, mechanical parking garage bays, lobbies for the rooftop restaurant, and one waterfront commercial space.
