$1.5B ‘Town For Millennials’ In North Miami Beach Poised For Final Approval Today, Including New Canal

Developer Gil Dezer is on the cusp of receiving final approval for Uptown Harbour in North Miami Beach.

Uptown Harbour includes plans to dig an entirely new canal on the property currently known as the Intracoastal Mall.

The North Miami Beach commission already voted in favor of the project in a first reading, with a second and final reading scheduled for today.

Dezer said in 2017 that the project would be built as a “town for millennials,” including vaporetto boat service to Wynwood and South Beach. However, Dezer told the Herald today that nearly all units will be sold as luxury condos, so it isn’t clear if the focus will still be on youth.

Here are details of the project:

  • Five towers up to 40 stories tall with 1,750 luxury condominiums
  • A mid-rise rental building with 200 units
  • 50 townhouses
  • 375,000 square feet of retail
  • 200,000 square feet of office
  • A boutique hotel
  • A fire and police substation
  • 30 acres total, with 9.4 acres of open space (including the canal and a park)
