UNStudio in The Netherlands and BC Architects are listed as architects of record for the project.
Today I've got the latest installment of my regular series of blog posts about what's going on in Hallandale Beach with the Chateau Group LLC's Chateau Square project that would erect TWO 40-story buildings with a large retail and hotel complex at the corner of U.S.-1 and Hallandale Beach Blvd., which could actually make the city's notoriously-bad and gridlocked traffic even worse.
Especially during the annual invasion into southeast Broward County by tens of thousands of Canadians from Ontario and Quebec, known around here as "the season," which has just begun, as suddenly, like every year, nearly one-third-to one-fourth of every car you see in Hallandale Beach or Hollywood east of I-95 is from Quebec or Ontario.
On Wednesday night at 6:30 PM, after many months of delays, the Hallandale Beach City Commission was scheduled to debate the matter for the first of two required votes on the project that so many Hallandale Beach residents are gravely concerned about.
Well, would you believe that last night, at a sparsely-attended public meeting of the
Hallandale Beach City Commission, they voted to grant yet ANOTHER deferral for
@SFBJRealEstate 1/ Corner of #HallandaleBeach Blvd/US-1, Voters saw @ChateauGroupLLC's preferred ppl at CityHall: Julian & Lewy. They lost! pic.twitter.com/UBbl5b0ztx— HallandaleBeachBlog (@hbbtruth) November 14, 2016
@SFBJRealEstate 8/ This = Taub & Lazarow signs @GulfstreamPark #HallandaleBeach, who oppose the project next door. They won -convincingly. pic.twitter.com/lCjmmOgWA2— HallandaleBeachBlog (@hbbtruth) November 14, 2016
@SFBJRealEstate 9/ .@GulfstreamPark's support 4 Taub & Lazarow was dwarfed by efforts of @DiplomatFlorida's $375k PAC effort to defeat them.— HallandaleBeachBlog (@hbbtruth) November 14, 2016
@SFBJRealEstate 10/ The same @DiplomatFlorida that got 4 towers approved, 2 at 30 stories in neighborhood w/height limit of... 10 stories.— HallandaleBeachBlog (@hbbtruth) November 14, 2016
The Gulfstream Park Race Track & Casino sign on the south side of Hibiscus Street, across from where the proposed project is situated.
Even from a cursory look at the photos you can see how completely incompatible two 40-story buildings on that corner would be, and the disastrous effect it would have in a city where Hallandale Beach Blvd. is the ONLY East-West street that runs throughout the city, connecting the beach to I-95.
But now, whenever the meeting is finally held, you will have the numbers to use as you wish.
Based on what I heard at the meeting from the traffic consultant, the traffic numbers
Rubber Stamp Crew, where exactly are her developer friends and their plans for higher
density projects near the FEC tracks, something that would actually be smart and which I and most other people in the area would support because of the proximity of the future Tri-Rail Coastal train?
But a good place to start is to kill any thought of making the city's busiest corner the home of two forty-story towers that would literally strangle the ability of residents and visitors alike to navigate their way in and thru the city.
