On August 10th, 2010 the City of Miami Beach’s Historic Preservation Board (“HPB”) Unanimously Approved ADMSP’s Preliminary and Landscape Plans Submitted by ADMSP on July 12th, 2010.
ADMSP’s board of directors, management, donors and volunteer board are pleased and thankful for the unanimous approval of the preliminary and landscape plans. The preliminary and landscape plans were developed by Les Beilinson from BeilinsonGomez Architects in conjunction with the landscape architect Orlando Comas based upon ArquitectonicaGEO’s landscape design concept.
The City of Miami Beach has informed ADMSP that it has until May 13, 2011 to obtain the building permit and then 30 days following, on June 13, 2011, to provide proof of funding. The Chairman of the Board of Directors of ADMSP, Peter Saile states that he is “confident that ADMSP will meet all required conditions on or before the required dates and thanks the Manager of the City of Miami Beach, Jorge M. Gonzalez and his staff for the good cooperation between him, his staff and ADMSP”.
Saile states that the HPB’s first unanimous decision in favor of ADMSP’s development of a sculpture park happened in December 13th, 2005, which makes this HPB decision, one of the high points in the development process.
He further states that the Altos Del Mar Park property that began with the Tatum Brothers has now shifted again and has become an important focal point in debates over preservation for the State of Florida and the City of Miami Beach. As the last remaining undeveloped land, ADMSP intends to keep the conservation legacy by adding an aesthetic experience with minimal environmental interventions, beautiful landscaping and much needed free community programming.
“By approving ADMSP’s preliminary and landscape plans, the HPB has allowed ADMSP to fulfill yet another step in furtherance of its mission”, Marlene Saile, Esq. said.
The next step for ADMSP is the application for the building permit with the City of Miami Beach’s Building Department by October 30, 2010. The permit must be obtained by April 15, 2011 in order for ADMSP to meet its goal for a grand opening in November of 2011.
ADMSP is devoted to developing a sculpture park with community programming that will transform North Beach into a community, cultural, tourism and travel destination elevating the quality of life and economy for all. We will do this by: (i) utilizing subtle interventions and ecologically harmonious materials, trees and plants thereby conserving the land; (ii) providing exhibitions of sculpture from established artists from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries; (iii) providing community programming to include art, fitness, and entertainment.
ADMSP will create a unique park that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future by utilizing subtle interventions and ecologically harmonious materials. The design takes
into account that Miami Beach is a barrier island formed by an accumulation of sediment on limestone shoals; that the property is ocean front property within the urban framework of the North Beach community, all of which inform the aesthetics and layout of the space: An allée, dunes, a maritime planting palette and butterflies provide a landscape design appropriate to the site making ADMSP as unique worldwide as is the site. ArquitectonicaGEO’s design concept is an abstract interpretation of forms found in south Florida limestone geology, parkland and urban life!
ADMSP is located at the Historic Altos del Mar district east of Collins Avenue (A1A Northbound) between 76th Street and 77th Streets.
ADMSP is for everyone!
