Eastside Ridge Special Area Plan Could Add 2,800 Units In Little Haiti

The owner of the Design Place apartment complex in Little Haiti is proposing to redevelop the property with a Special Area Plan under the Miami 21 zoning code.

The SAP proposal calls for:

  • 2,798 residential units
  • 418 hotel rooms
  • 283,798 square feet of retail
  • 97,103 square feet of office
  • 4,636 parking spaces

SVP Realty of New York owns the property and submitted the proposal. Kobi Karp is the architect.

Miami’s UDRB will review the plans on December 21.

This is what Little Haiti needs! Clean up the streets by doing things like this.

Let’s make most of Miami great again! (lol)

Not really, Design Place and this area is already the best maintained area of Little Haiti. This won’t necessarily clean anything.

At least it will somewhat help promote future plans.

just out of curiosity what is wrong with Little Haiti that needs cleaning up? Its a stable, blue collar community that suits the people who live there, and have lived there for decades, and provides an area of cultural refuge for one of the largest immigrant community of Miami. Just because it does not suit “your” particular proclivities does not mean it is without value.

Completely agree. However, they are not making any more land and so the construction boom will continue to expand. It started with Brickell and Downtown, it has now moved to Edgewater, Midtown, and Overtown. The next cycle will most definitely include Little Haiti, that is just the way things work. People who live there now will either leave by choice or be forced out because of rising property values, rent, etc.

The smart artists that bought in this area when they were priced out of Wynwood will now benefit from any improvement in the area and will be able to stay.

Face the reality, Miamians like their cars. Always have. You want extensive public transportation, move to NYC or Boston.

People wont like their cars so much when it takes a hour to move 3 miles. Your view is very short sighted.

The best part of this design is the pedestrian bridge crossing the Bright Line tracks. The there is almost 1 mile of unobstructed track that separates Buena Vista/Little Haiti from Biscayne. I forecast more pedestrian accidents in this area when Brightline becomes service.

Allow *only* as a condition of building Coastal Link station at 54th Street.

The tenants in this area used to throw rocks at us during practice in the ABCND field.

The UDRB Board heard the item on December 22nd, 2016. The Board did not pass it. Too many problems. Why didn’t the planners extend NE 3rd Avenue south? Why isn’t there a big public park? Why didn’t the planners acknowledge the problems with traffic? Why so much retail? Continued to January 2017. Expect dissent.

Another monster?

Yup, UDRB Board refused to pass this mess. The owners are overreaching. Too many units. Guaranteed gridlock for all the neighbors and for anyone going east-west on NE 54th Street and south-north on NE 2nd Avenue. Developer shows no interest in compatibility. In fact, the project, as proposed, would harm the adjacent neighborhoods.

Gridlock baby.
Gridlock baby.

Of course the item was continued. It needs more work. Building a new mini-City at that location will crush its neighbors. Who wants that? NY based speculators, that’s who.

Why is the same black girl in 3 different renders? She cute but is she a prostitute or something? If so I can’t wait for them to build this so I can pay for some fun.
