Miami Dade College is a Super Building

Located at Biscayne Boulevard and NE 5th Street in downtown Miami, the Campus Center for Miami Dade college looks like something out of OMA’s handbag.  It is urban density turned into a superbuilding, combining apartments, offices, educational facilities, and a lot of space for art exhibition.  But it is all Miami: the bravado somehow feels just what downtown Miami needs, and the design firm responsible, Oppenheim Architects , is located in Miami as well.  Oppenheim’s website says the project’s estimated completion is 2012, although we think this is an incredibly optimistic considering the project that has a lot of speculative residential and commercial development.

Still, those dbox renderings really look sweet.  We hope it happens.
