Condo Tower Above Church At 1836 Biscayne Granted Miami 21 Waiver

Miami zoning officials granted final approval on January 27 for the 1836 Biscayne project.

The project includes a condo tower built above a historic church, along with a grocery in the former house of worship.

A waiver from the Miami 21 zoning code was needed in order to permit driveway aisle widths that are 8.7% smaller than required. The smaller driveway widths allow for a reduction in parking plates, in order to emphasize the spatial form of the Biscyane Boulevard corridor as an active public space, which was requested by the Historic Preservation Board.

Although the project was ultimately approved, it could be expensive to build.
