$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)

This thing is not for millennials. If a millennial has the money to buy a luxury condo, they are going to buy in Brickell/Downtown, the Beach, and maybe downtown Coral Gables.

Agreed. I called this town for rich millennials. If they want to make it for millennials, the jobs in this place is going to have to pay over let’s say 200 K a year when working in an office. Possibly over 150,000 A year. Well the town houses can be modern as they are on the exterior, the interior should have somewhat premium or modestly modern interior to target as much of the mass market as possible. And to make it even more affordable, the buildings would have to be pre-fabricated.

Right? I think they should change their marketing strategies. North Miami isn’t exactly a poppin area…

Yeah, you`re right J., because I’m amused at how someone said they’re targeting “RICH” NYC folks.

I can’t get over the bone-headed comment of bringing boat service to Wynwood…which is located inland -___-

I agree that there is no way that millennials from Miami could afford this. People use the terms “millennials” to generalize younger generations however millennials are people who were born between 1980 and 2000, so technically they could be 40,30 years old. Remember the 90’s were 30 years ago 😂

Didnt know thousands of 20 something year olds had enough money to afford luxury condos! This far out from downtown where they would probably work to make that kind of money wouldnt be a good idea.

May be rich ones that is. They would have to be very high paying jobs in this project for the office spaces. Anything over 150,000 a year at the minimum to something over 300,000 a year.

Imagine thinking a millennial would prefer this over Wynwood, Brickell or South Beach.

The beach in this area is not exciting at all. Also, existing mid scale dining has been replaced with uber wealth options in Sunny Isles. Not a very exciting part of Miami. Oh yeah there’s Aventura Mall with the Apple Store lol

this place is across the street from Oleta River State Park, across the bridge from the beach, Newport Pier, and Haulover Park.

The project in one final approval. However, at the last minute, a few days after that conditioner turned around and requested another meeting for approval because according to the Miami Herald, one commissioner fell asleep on the job when she’s not supposed to. Another commissioner left and there were screaming matches. However, you can’t just approve a project then turn a round and request for another meeting with new votes after it’s already won approval, it doesn’t work like that. Once it’s approved, that’s it. You can’t go back and get a revote.

Oh I can’t wait until that’s built. Seriously. The townhouses should be family townhouses from three bedrooms to six bedrooms. Make them modestly priced. Some of the buildings can be built through prefabrication which will make the buildings more affordable and units more affordable. Additionally, the buildings can be built faster and more durable in hurricanes. Tell Dezer
