1,219-Unit Overtown Development Approved, Construction Timeline Announced

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board has voted in favor of a massive Overtown development, and a construction timeline has been announced by the developer.

The UDRB vote 4-0 last week to recommend approval as presented.

Developer Terra is working in partnership with an entity controlled by the Mas family on the new community.

Three phases are planned. Construction of the project’s first phase of approximately 537 units is estimated to get underway in 2025, the developer said last week.

The apartments will be a mix of market-rate, workforce and affordable housing.

The developers said they are working with neighborhood stakeholders and the Overtown Community Redevelopment Agency, with the goal to bring attainable housing options, improved walkability, green infrastructure, and connectivity to nearby transit.

When all three phases are complete, the development will include:

  • 1,219 residential units
  • 16,337 square feet of commercial
  • 1,798 parking spaces

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Harlem is the best area oh NYC right now. It’s still cheaper (compared to the rest of the city) and it has so much to offer. I was there last week and it was beautiful and safe. Surprisingly it was more white people than black though🤔

Manhattan is better than Brickell, so Overtown is better than Brickell

Brickell is 100 times better than Manhattan. I’ve lived in both for a long time. People in Manhattan would move to Brickell in a heart beat if we had higher paying jobs.

I live in Over Town and work in Brickell and Brickell is a lot better. I live a nice new property and on a daily basis some is try to sell me drugs, sell me sex, ask for money, ask for a cigarette, ask me I’m selling drugs or know where I can get drugs. EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.

That’s exactly why it got better compared to how it was in the 80s… gentrification is amazing!

That’s been the Plan for Historic Overtown for Decades now. It’s just coming into fruition

@Muhammad, whats been the plan? People get so worked up over nothing. That area isn’t going to become a bunch of white people. LOL, Miami fills up with Latinos, but because you see a bunch of people from the North East move to Brickell you think Over town is going to get “gentrified”? No! Overtown will just get more expensive but it won’t really change its demographis. People selfsegregate these days.

Because people have a narrow view of the world. If they don’t like they don’t want it. I would love more jazz/blues music venues and that type of music is historically black so Overtown would be a great fit. We need more diversity on a lot of fronts and that scares some people.

The next Wynwood is Allapattah. Notice how House of Mac and Morgan’s were some of the first restaurants in Wynwood and they’ve both recently moved to Allapattah. That area is ripe for development and I can’t wait to see how it develops.

I like the vibe of the proposed architecture. Agree with the comment that it gives a NY vibe, in a good way. Great to have a mix of architecture types and size.

The Dolce and Gabbana tower should get inspiration from this architecture

Why so much parking, so close to a metrorail station?

Where can the public see information presented to Miami’s URDB?
