Miami Beach Lincoln Road Gains New High-Profile Garage and Retail Space ... http://420lincolnroad.com
(source: Newswire Today and LINK .) Situated behind 420 Lincoln Road, the original 1940s-era building at the southwest corner of Washington Avenue and Lincoln Road, Park[.]420 is literally at the center of the city’s vibrant artistic, cultural and retail renaissance. Park[.]420 will be open to the public in time for Lincoln Road’s wildly popular Halloween weekend.
The five-story, $40 million contemporary complex contains the 500-space parking garage with an entrance conveniently located on 16th Street and Drexel Avenue, and Shoppes[.]420, which boasts 17,400 square feet of available retail and restaurant space. Miami-based Arellano Construction is responsible for construction management of the project.
Lincoln Road is now anchored on both east and west by mixed-use garage structures designed by two of the world’s top architectural firms: Norten’s TEN Arquitectos, based in Mexico and New York, and Herzog & de Meuron of Switzerland, which designed the garage at the corner of Alton Road.
Neighbors include architect Frank Gehry’s New World Center (designed for the New World Symphony); The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater; the Miami Beach Convention Center; Miami City Ballet; Bass Museum of Art; and The Wolfsonian-FIU. Recently, FIU’s College of Architecture + The Arts opened its Miami Beach Urban Studios satellite campus at 420 Lincoln, adding to the growing artistic synergy of the area.
“As we created this new structure, we visualized a design that would fit both the tempo of the neighborhood and also connect with the dynamics of a garage,” said former Ambassador Paul Cejas, president and CEO of 420 Lincoln Road Associates, the property owner. “And then, with the opportunity to weave in the new FIU campus, we were able to capitalize on the artistic and cultural energy that now embodies this truly exciting neighborhood.”
TEN Arquitectos (Taller de Enrique Norten Arquitectos) was founded in Mexico City by Enrique Norten in 1986 and has produced numerous award-winning and acclaimed architectural projects. . . . “We conceptualized all aspects of the new building before construction began,” said Lamys Guerrero, vice president of 420 Lincoln Road Associates, who is overseeing the construction of the building. “Our team captured the boldness of Norten’s design and managed the project through its two years of development and construction, working in close collaboration with the architect, the community and the city to achieve an iconic masterpiece that will make a lasting contribution to the urban fabric of Miami Beach.” The still evolving city-wide block, anchored by the original 1940s building, is ideally centered in the heart of South Beach, just blocks from the beach, convention center, City Hall, cultural arts venues, and hotels. A 20,000 square-foot, 1,600-seat former movie theater, located adjacent to the new addition, is in the process of being transformed into a multi-level retail space with an anticipated opening of December 2012.
