daniel libeskind has been commissioned to design four new ‘ultra-luxury’ condominium residence towers to add to the ‘mizner on the green‘ community in boca raton, located just north of miami. developed by florida-based ELAD national properties, the structures will provide views of the coastline and will be complemented by a 2-acre public park containing art, seating areas, and expansive stretches of grass and vegetation. the project will add 254 owner-occupied dwellings to the 246-unit rental community existing on the site.

the project seeks to offset a rise in rental apartments in the coastal florida downtown area (nearly 2000 units recently approved), by providing a complex dedicated to owner-occupied residences. similarly, the scheme intends remain relatively low-density, by placing all parking underground and dedicating nearly 50% of the site to open green space.

in collaboration with designer daniel libeskind, the development will be implemented by local architect garcia stromberg and landscape architecture office EDSA. on average, the condominium unit size will be 2,500 square-feet, while each will feature expansive views to the ocean and be accessed by private elevators. the proposed scheme envisions vegetation not only across the site’s landscape, but also on the residence’s balconies as well as the high rise roof tops. the glass towers will exist as some of the tallest structures in the area, comprised of low to mid-rise buildings.

  • It seems to be a recycled version of Libeskind’s Keppel Bay towers. It was an uninteresting idea then, even less so now as a rehash that says nothing about the local sense of place.

    Fabio D says:
  • Addison Mizner may have been Florida’s greatest architect. His style was sensitive to the local character and history and is still loved. His name should be debased through association with the work of a degenerate corporate hack like Daniel Libeskind. Libeskind would not have been deemed fit to sharpen pencils in the office of a truly great architect like Mizner.

    ASF says:
  • Another example of Libeskind’s “sell-out” phase. This is what happens when a money-grubbing wife pussy whips a schmuck into becoming a ‘brand’ instead of a real man. What a pathetic character she has reduced him too. Has he any backbone?

    Daverio says:
  • I guess nobody told Daniel Libeskind that ‘Towers in the Park’ was a failed modernist idea and that we try to build places that respect the street wall now.

    Walker T says:
  • The only positive thing I can say about this is that it is less bad than the ‘Ascent’ building Libeskind “designed” for Covington, Kentucky. This is still pretty gross, just not as gross as most of Libeskind’s other work. He’s really cheapened the profession with his tacky approach to architecture.

    Samuel KG says:
  • If it is designed by Studio Daniel Libeskind, it will be garbage. The meaningless forms might change, but the underlying stupidity that is the hallmark of this pseudo practice of apes with computers will, unfortunately, be there to blight the landscape.
