Miami's Incredible $65 Million, Wall-Free Parking Garage

Miami's amazing $65 million parking garage at 1111 Lincoln Road appears almost entirely free of walls. This despite holding 300 cars, numerous high-end shops, a few expensive homes, and floors of akimbo supporting piers.

The garage at 1111 Lincoln Road isn't the first mixed-used parking garage to incorporate retail and residential into its design, but it's the first we've seen that does so artistically. Created to accompany the bank building next door, 1111 is the work of architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron. It's technically eleven floors tall, but each floor varies in size, with ceiling heights ranging from seven to 34 feet.

The ground floor is designed to house retail shops (expensive places like Taschen and Inkanta), with the top floor used primarily for penthouse residences and a large multi-use party space. Everything in between is mostly parking or art space.

Lest you worry someone's going to drive off the edge of the building or crash through a store, the entire building is valet-only.

According to the comments, it is NOT valet-only. I think it looks really chic, and very fitting for Miami Beach. I'm sure SoCal will start seeing similar things, likely starting in Santa Monica or Manhattan Beach.
