1111 Lincoln Road, a parking garage in the South Beach section of Miami Beach, Florida, designed by the international Swiss architectural company of Herzog and De Meuron. It is located on the west side of Lincoln Road Mall on the intersection with Elton Road, and it can house up to 300 cars. After its opening in 2010, it has a significant interest because its unique appearance is different from the more traditional parking garage design.

In 2005, local developer Robert Wennett bought the structure of the SunTrust Bank Office, which was a brutalist style since 1968 and. This included a nearby surface parking. Went to regenerate the western end of the Lincoln Road Mall, Wennett decided that it would not completely remove the existing structure, but instead a parking garage would make something along the same height.

Architectural records have noted, "Building type pantheon, parking garage is hidden somewhere around the jail and toll plaza." The New York Times labeled parking garages for "a serious pattern of American design". But Wennett decides to separate something, and before choosing Herzog & de Meuron, he visits ten well-known architects around the world. Construction began in 2008 and began to close the western end of Lincoln Road Mall.
