Miami Condo With Designer Parking Spot, Zero View

Herzog & de Meuron, 1111 Lincoln Road in Miami's South Beach
Herzog & de Meuron, 1111 Lincoln Road in Miami's South Beach

Look, it's a parking garage!
No, it's a shopping mall!
Wait, it's a 2-bedroom, 2.5 bath condo that will set you back about $2 million!

To be precise, the new mixed-use building complex at 1111 Lincoln Road in Miami's South Beach is all of the above and more - parking spaces, high end retail, and 4 condo residences - wrapped up in a striking concrete-and-steel structure by the Swiss star-architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, the dynamic duo that gave us the Beijing "bird's nest" National Stadium and the copper-clad M. H. de Young Museum in San Francisco.

Now they're injecting some classy design into the Miami real estate market, still shaking off the doldrums of price deflation and overloaded inventory, but ready it appears to take a bet on an innovative development (the Swiss duo are also designing the Miami Art Museum).
